I love random days like Halloween. It usually means large amounts of unnecessary candy, in-game themed community events, and sometimes, games for really cheap. PlayStation are throwing together some rather delicious specials to welcome in the scary event, all taking place over the next two weeks.
Hey you! Do you like killing stuff? Do you like it when said killed stuff drops loot? If you said yes to one or all of these, I’d imagine you are a big fan of Diablo III and its expansion, Reaper of Souls. If you’ve yet to try the action clickathon because you’ve been saving up those pennies, then today is your lucky day. Blizzard have both the core and expansion at 50% cheaper – so basically the increase for PS Plus, but in reverse!
Steam often has glorious sales that lead to epic backlogs, but the console gamers also need the love. PS Plus generally ensures that I always have a huge backlog of awesome games to play, but just in case I missed some, the PlayStation store has launched a sale that will make my bank account bleed.
The PlayStation Network is having a sale. It's actually been going for a while, but the games were pretty lame and I didn't want to waste your time or mine reporting on it. Now they've upped their game, and your wallet might just beg for mercy.
By all rights, GTA V is one of the best games of 2013. Hell, it’s still one of the best games of 2014, even if it does demand a hefty premium price tag. Has that discouraged you from buying the game? Well fret not, wannabe five-star amigos, because you can join Trevor, Michael and Franklin in San Andreas for cheap thanks to an Xbox Live sale that currently happens to be on.
We all know the Steam Summer Sale is coming. My wallet isn't ready, so I will probably have to just unplug my router until it's over. But before I can even prepare for that, Good Old Games has started their sale, and it includes a free game.
If you’re keen to jump in on the next generation, but think the R6799 RRP for the PlayStation 4 is a tad too high, then you may wish to grab one for just R5999 from Takealot, as part of their daily deals. This is likely the cheapest you’ll see the machine locally for a while yet, so if you want to save cash on a PS4, now’s the time to do it. Kalahari is also selling off the PlayStation 4 at R5999 today....and today only. Go here!
Steam and its myriad sales and bundles is responsible for much of the content clogging up your backlog. Chances are, you’ll never got to playing all of those games, because you’re always buying new ones. Origin wants in on that backlog-stuffing action too, and has kicked off a new sale that takes a dig at the Steam games you don’t play – by offering ones it’s certain you will.
End of May is upon us (holy crap, are you kidding me? The year is almost over?) and it's time for some crazy deals. Kalahari is offering a one day only deal; you get R100 off when you spend R350 or more. It's only valid for today, so go get shopping.
I still remember the days before I had Steam. I used to share an account with my husband, so I never saw all the sales, didn't get those emails saying that games in my wish list were on sale. Now, I have to practice all the self control, because I could easily buy far too many awesome games, especially at these prices.
YouTube may not have much in the way of competition (Vimeo? HA!), but the one online video platform that could easily give the Google giant a run for its money has to be Twitch. Twitch on its own is a behemoth of live-streaming with various channels dedicated to gaming. Now imagine all of that combined with YouTube should a deal go through.
Desktop Dungeons, from the chaps at QCF is a shining star in the rapidly expanding universe of locally made games. We at Lazygamer love it – and not just because it’s locally made, but because it’s a damned fine game. Tough as nails, but excellent. And now you can get it for half price..but hurry!
So how’s that gaming backlog of yours looking? Did you finally clear some space? Yeah, it’s nice to be able to look at a cleared selection of games when all of a sudden another gaming sale hits you IN YO FA-ACE! Good Old Games is here to spring that surprise on you, but you’re going to have to stay awake to do so.
Whenever those Steam sales happen, the Pc folk go in to a buying frenzy while console gamers sit about, tapping their fingers on their desks. Good news for those of you on the PlayStation side of life; there’s a pretty huge Easter sale happening right now.
Ah, Bid or Buy - our local eBay. You are strange and wonderful - where else could the guys get their awful chili peppers and rare comics? This Wacky Wednesday, you can even pick up a cheap PS4.
