PlayStation Vita 3G Launch Bundle
Are you in the market for a Vita? Our thrifty experts tell us the very best way to go is the PlayStation Vita 3G Launch Bundle from Amazon. It comes with an 8GB Memory Card, DataConnect Session Pass, CTA Digital PS Vita Screen Protection Kit and PSN Game. You get everything you need for $299.99. Sure, we would like a larger Memory Card, but with the 16GB going for a ridiculous $60, you might as well use this free 8GB Card until the prices inevitably drop.
Mass Effect 3 is one of the most anticipated games of the year, and it is only a few short weeks from release! March 6 is the day and there is still time to pre-order and get the M55 Argus Assault Rifle and a $10 promotional credit at Amazon.com.
Skylander’s is by far the hugest kids game out there, it is nothing short of a phenomenon. Probably because the game is fun for both kids and adults. Once you catch the fever, you will want to start collecting the figures… all the figures. The 3DS version is a different game than the console and PC versions, but it uses the same figures! It comes with it’s own portal, and even has a unique skylander that you can’t get anywhere else.
Dungeon Defenders [PC] for $2.99
Dungeon Defenders is absolutely chock-full of content, and really fun content as well. It is a deceptively deep RPG with the ability to find loot, upgrade your loot, character, pet and towers. It takes team work and some serious strategy as well. It has oodles of modes that can keep you busy for dozens and dozens of hours.
Dear lord! Look at that price! For the same amount as you would pay for a value meal, you can get a very solid game that is bright and colorful and not just the same dreck you’ve been playing over and over. Give Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom a shot!
