GamersGate, some online store I haven’t used before but likely will today, is having themselves a great big Summer Sale Reloaded and a whole lotta Ubisoft games have been well discounted for the next 61 hours. So, y’know, heads up ‘n stuff.
Myself, I’m looking to pick up Splinter Cell Blacklist Deluxe Edition (75% off), Tom Clancy’s End War (75% off), the AC III Season Pass (75% off), AC IV Black Flag (33% off), and/or AC Freedom Cry (33% off). There are a lot more available, too. Thus far my experience with the site has been pretty positive and I rather like the profile achievements and minion thing they have going on. I’ve yet to buy anything but I’ll update here once I have.
I really need to quit using that line… Origin’s doing the cheap games thing, with a “Player Appreciation Sale,” “games you would actually play” campaign (poking a little fun at Steam’s “there’s always something on sale” thing which for many just ends up being library filler).
There are some great specials on, with the games being 70% off which is a pretty decent discount. Personally, I’m picking up Dead Space 2, Need for Speed Shift, Bulletstorm, and probably Syndicate too. I’m on the fence about Syndicate, since most reviews I see praise the co-op as its best aspect but I’m usually late to the party with co-op titles and end up hardly playing the co-op bits ’cause everyone’s done with ’em already (nudge nudge, wink wink).
Oh, and here’s something unprecedented: I didn’t find out about this from NAG Online! It came right from the source! Isn’t that something?
And now to go contemplate how terrible I am for starting to actually like EA’s Origin while I wait for the downloads…
