Bargain Gamer: Sale of the Dead Week 1

As a gamer, there are so many games on my watch list that I wait months or even years after release.  When I finally get around to getting these games, it’s easier to find them for a fraction of the price through either Amazon or other sales.  My goal is to help share deals I see.  I may or may not have played these games, so there won’t be much in terms of a review.  But, I’ll try to explain why I think these deals are worth it.

For my first Bargain Gamer article, I’m highlighting a few sales from the first week of PS Store’s Sale of the Dead!  Personally, I’m not really into scary games, but if you’re into the thrill, then check out these games below!

TelltaleUndeadBundle

Telltale Undead Survival Bundle $21.99/$27.49* (Retail $54.99)

If you haven’t picked up any of Telltale’s Walking Dead series, this may be a good time to do so.  This bundle includes 4 full games (both seasons and the Michonne mini-series, along with the open-world 7 Days to Die).  If you already have some of these titles, each game is also on sale separately, including the most recent Season 3 (not included in this bundle).

Resident Evil 7 biohazard $29.99/$35.99* (Retail $59.99)

This survival horror series goes back to its roots and is now half off, which is pretty good for a game less than a year old.  If you’re interested in the DLC or deluxe edition, those are also marked down.  If you’re interested in the other installments and spin-offs, plenty of those are on sale as well.

WitcherIIICompleteEdition

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition $19.99/$24.99* (Retail $49.99)

This is probably the best deal of all.  All DLC and expansion packs of an already massive open-world RPG.  I’m currently playing this after getting during the E3 sale, and I’ve put in over 100 hours and counting. We sometimes talk about getting a good deal if you get an hour for each dollar, but with this game you can get over 5 times as much.  If you’re into games like Skyrim, I think CD Projekt Red has done an even better job at the formula.  Doing sidequests are varied enough while adding loads of depth to the wide cast of characters, so there’s no feeling of getting burnt out.

For Xbox owners, it’s also currently on sale for XBOX Live Gold subscribers for $20 as well!

 

Honorable Mention

Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition $4.49/$5.99* (Retail $14.99)

There are a ton of other games on sale that I couldn’t mention, so check out the full sale here.  These sales last until the end of the month!

*The cheaper price is if you have a PS+ subscription.
