Square Enix titles are on sale at Newegg this weekend during a fire sale of sorts (honestly it still feels very much like Edios titles to me, but I digress). Some notable titles are on the price chop block, with Tomb Raider GOTY Edition on sale for $5.09 after coupon EMCPEHA86. Bunch of other titles are also on sale using the same coupon stacking with instant savings. Most titles are at or near their all time low price point, but Tomb Raider is probably the best value out of the bunch.

 

Other gaming discount news this weekend includes a 20% coupon for Tuesday’s big release Watch Dogs, a title that by all accounts appears to be doing well both in reviews and sales. While Battlefield 3 has long since seen its prime (we’re already 7 months into Battlefield 4 now) EA decided to throw a bone to all who would partake – a free copy of Battlefield 3 is available on Origin Store until June 3rd.

    Well, I finally grabbed RE6 off GMG. Having a lot of leftover Playfire money helped, I paid less than 2 dollars for it. The demo didn’t really win me over, but for that price, it will be worth checking out at least Leon’s campaign.

    • Vesperion

      The game isn’t as awful as people claim it is. The thing is that it just departs from what RE is known for.

      It’s not bad if you walk into it as a action game

      • Masa

        Agree, heck, i enjoyed the while game.

  • Vesperion

    Of course it was PC…….what was i thinking?

    • http://dealzon.com/ Dealzon

      I marked the article as PC but yeah…

      • Vesperion

        Yeah i just jumped at it too fast without thinking, haha

    • darke

      I would have thought the too-cheap-for-consoles price tag in the title would have tipped you off it was for PC. :)

    • Invisbin

      You don’t understand how hard this shit fooled me too. I came into the article thinking it was on consoles even though i knew damn well only pc games get serious price drops on AAA games like this.

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    I stopped reading as soon as I saw Steam.

    • Zerousen

      Why? What’s so wrong with Steam?

      • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

        Nothing is wrong with Steam. I just play on consoles, not PC.

        • Zerousen

          Ah, I see. I haven’t really been using my PS3 that much myself, although I’m sure once Persona 5 and Ultimax comes out, I’ll be dusting it off a bit.

    • Lastlight

      Me too

  • fearlubu

    No Sleeping Dogs tag? I see how it is, Viet Do.

    • http://dealzon.com/ Dealzon

      Haha just didnt want to tag a bunch of stuff.

      Sleeping Dogs is an excellent game hence its in the title. Everyone should have it in their collection (and actually play it vs having it sit there).

  • Akai Ringo

    who seriously can afford to have a computer strong enough to play these games by now…

    • Zerousen

      Anyone who is able to own a PS4 or an Xbox One can build a decent gaming PC that will play at medium high/high settings at 1080p for about the same price, maybe a bit less.

      • Mnstrzero00

        But very few people will say ” yeah I can totally spend $300 on parts to build something that I’ve never built before. I can totally do that and not screw it up”

        • Zerousen

          Actually, it was my first time building my current computer as well. I’m sure anyone can build a computer with basic knowledge of how one works, and watching YouTube videos on how it is done helps so very much. There are many resources one can use online that can help. As overwhelming as it was the first time I did it, when I look back on it, it really wasn’t as hard as I had thought it was. I’m actually thinking of ordering some more parts to build one for my little sister in the near future.

        • X_Bacon

          It may sound crazy, but assembling a PC isn’t hard. Some stores I know even hire people that are computer illiterates for this job.

          Troubleshooting and maintenance are the hard parts.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/xxHiryuuxx Kaleido-Ruby

            This is…half and half right. There are some that, if they follow directions without freaking out, will be able to do the job no problems at all…since the majority of building a computer up from scratch is being careful and turning screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Nothing about it is really hard.

            But I have seen people completely botch computer build-ups because they just freak at the notion that they’re going to screw something up and inevitably do just that…like I literally had someone put in a motherboard I/O panel in reverse and them jam in the motherboard thinking that it would work then wonder why they can’t get anything connected…and some other things. I mean I’ve seen custom built ones by customers come through the door and they have no clue what they’re doing building stuff up.

            So, you’re right…and then at the same time you have to consider that a lot of people have comfort issues to things that they don’t understand. But once they get over it, then you’re correct – it’s not hard at all. Too bad I still make money off the many, many people that don’t know this.

          • Invisbin

            Im sorry but building a pc is much more pricey than what people actually try to make it sound. I actually bought a pre built pc from walmart instead of building one because…well…it wouldve cost twice as much as my Ps4. Im sorry, but its just not worth it to me to invest in PC hardware when a damn video card costs more than my ps4.

          • X_Bacon

            What…?
            Dude, we were talking about how difficult it is to assemble the parts together, not how much it costs to buy them.

            Besides, just because there are video cards that cost that much doesn’t mean you need them.

        • Vesperion

          Yeah i rather just stick to my console since it’s way more simple

      • Juan Andrés Valencia

        Unless you live in Mexico, Argentina or Brazil, PC parts in those countries are a bloody rip-off.

        • Zerousen

          Oh yeah, Australia and New Zealand also have the same issue.

          • Juan Andrés Valencia

            I think Australia is even worse from what I’ve seen.

        • Daniel

          Yeah, but the price of consoles on those countries are rip-off too.

      • darke

        Even cheap laptops the price of a PS4/XB1 nowadays will play the game competently at the no doubt 16:9 735p or whatever resolution screen you get at that price point. Most game’s XB1 resolution is only a tiny bit higher before being scaled up to 1080p after all, so it’s not as if it’s too far off current generation. :?

        • Zerousen

          Issue with a laptop is that it’s a pain if you want to upgrade. The laptop that I got 3 years ago was pretty great for the time, but now I can’t really do anything with it. If I had built a desktop PC back then, I would still be able to upgrade it just by simply replacing the graphics card and maybe the cpu/motherboard.

          • darke

            I know, but if people are used to consoles where you buy a sealed unit and toss it 3 years when it breaks and buy a new one, a laptop or similar all-in-one is probably easier for them. :)

            But you could grab a cheap dell pre-built as well, I was just focusing on the ‘build’ part. Honestly I’m a computer geek and I’ll be getting the local parts shop to build/burn-in my next PC from the bits I select just because the build process can be fiddly and time consuming, so I can understand where they’re coming from…

          • Zerousen

            Yeah, I get what you mean. My 140 mm bottom intake fan wouldn’t fit because my PSU was only 10mm too big, so I had to install a 120mm one… So now instead of a red and black computer, I have a primarily red and black build with this bright ass blue LED fan at the bottom, since it was a spare that my dad had given me. You’re right about that though, if it’s easier for them that way. Just as long as they don’t buy something like a crappy netbook.

    • Mir Teiwaz

      How much do you actually think a computer capable of playing Tomb Raider and Sleeping Dogs costs?

      • Shin

        And what do you mean by capable, bare minimum or ultra?

        • Mir Teiwaz

          1080p, 60 fps, medium settings at least. My computer runs Tomb Raider just fine on Ultra minus the TressFX and it was about $800 or so, but I went for some optional stuff (SSD for my OS) that you don’t need if you don’t want it. You could go for a cheaper case, graphics card and dump the SSD and that should bring down the price a bit more.

          I would guess around $650-700 because I had a spare legit windows serial key and CD-Rom drive lying around, so I didn’t have to buy those when I built my PC.

    • E.T.993

      …Got a new computer now that can run Goat Simulator and TF2 so me!*raises hand*

    • Darkrise

      A LOT of people can.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/xxHiryuuxx Kaleido-Ruby

      Hi. Some of us are knowledgeable about this by trade so we get money from out jobs to go out and build it when we have the time. Saves you some cash and whatnot.

      Another thing is that the minimum requirements for something like Tomb Raider are very low in comparison to computers that you can just go out and get anywhere now. XP (which is no longer supported), 1GB of RAM, 1/2GB video RAM, dual-core CPU. That’s about a 200 dollar rig, really and about 5-7 years old.

  • wez

    Their site doesnt let you get if you are form canada wut lol

  • GOLD

    great deals, but nothing im interested in that i dont all ready own.

  • king alexander

    is funny how those games feel like eidos games to you when the games wouldn’t exist without S-E financing (or not to that scale) and beside just cause 2,sleeping dogs and front mission evolved are not developed by the S-E subsidiary
