Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Pre-Order for 32% off on PC

By Viet Do . February 12, 2014 . 12:00pm


The upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 pre-order showed up this week on various digital retailers (including, of course, the Steam Store). It’s looking like Konami is letting retailers discount the pre-order at 10% off, because  everywhere we look there’s a pre-order price break of $6, dropping it to $53.99. But even better, GMG has a stacking 25% off coupon on top of the 10% discount, dropping the price further to $40.50, or 32% off (hence the headline).


You can read reviews and previews until you’re blue in the face, but you should just check out the demo of Lords of Shadow 2 which is available on the Steam Store. In an age where demos are quickly being replaced by early access alphas, I applaud Konami and MercurySteam for going through the trouble of getting a working demo in place. Lords of Shadow 2 is of course coming out later this month on February 25th for the PC, 360, and PS3. Given I still have Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition sitting in my Steam library with a total play time of 30 minutes (the game was around $8 during the Winter Sale), I’ll probably pass on Lords of Shadow 2 until I get through the freaking first game.


There are a bunch of AAA pre-orders on sale at GMG which we’ve already reported about in the past week: ESO, Stick of Truth, etc. Titanfall along with Child of Light made the list this week. Perhaps the best discount is on The Sims 4, where you not only get the 20% discount but also get your choice of either a $12 credit or $8 cash back bonus at Green Man Gaming. Taking the cash back option takes about 2-3 business days but effectively makes the game only $40. GMG’s coupon code expires on Friday the 14th (whew) at 8AM Pacific.


Finally, there’s a sale on Kalypso titles over at GameFly. Beyond Tropico 4, I have no idea if the other titles are good or worth a download. (Speaking of which, we’ll probably start inserting Metacritic scores in future sale lists once we get a script of some sort running. Will make browsing the deal list easier – not that Metacritic score is the “end all” of benchmarks, but when you see a 1/10 game, it helps filter things out a bit).
