1. Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Unity Bundle for $330
If you missed this morning’s ridiculous bargain to grab this console bundle for only $280, don’t fret; it’s still a great deal at $50 more. For the price of $329.99, you get an Xbox One console, a controller, a headset and two Assassin’s Creed games. Keep in mind that the Xbox One originally shipped sans games for $500 (with a Kinect, of course).
2. Destiny for $45
So Bungie’s latest sci-fi shooter wasn’t the game-changing FPS it was hyped up to be. So what? Destiny was still one of 2014’s best games, and you can get it for $15 off its regular price right now.
When Bungie, the creators of the original Halo trilogy, announced their new sci-fi shooter, the world couldn’t wait to explore a new universe full of aliens, robots and mysterious locations. While the final game disappointed some fans who expected something monumental, what Destiny does offer is best-in-class shooting and looting with only a subpar story and some lackluster missions holding it back. What’s unique about Destiny is its shared world experience where players interact with others during independent single-player and cooperate missions. With limitless multiplayer and a stream of content additions and updates heading its way, Destiny will only get more addicting as time goes on. Oh, and there’s also dancing.
3. Turtle Beach Ear Force PX51 Gaming Headset for $156
If you’re looking for a gaming headset a bit more hardcore than your run-of-the-mill set, the PX51 might be what you’re after. It’s $156, which isn’t cheap, but considering it’s normally close to $300, you know you’re getting a quality product. Stream tunes through the headset’s Bluetooth while gaming or take advantage of the dual-stage audio processing for crystal-clear sound. This is a headset for hardcore players who want to get immersed into their games, and you can grab it for nearly half off.
4. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for $40
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel isn’t a brand-new game, but it is a great one, and you get can get it today for 33 percent off.
The Borderlands series is great. It provides players with hilarious characters, ridiculous quests, fun co-op and literally millions of unique guns to use to shoot and loot your way across Pandora. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place before Borderlands 2. The classic formula of violence returns, but this time you can play as Handsome Jack or even Claptrap. It’s just too bad the game only launched for last-gen consoles.
5. The Evil Within for $20
A “spiritual successor” to the horrifying Resident Evil series, The Evil Within, launched only in late October, but you can grab it now for up to 66 percent off. That’s a real … scream. Sorry, I had to.
Anyone who’s played the Resident Evil series knows that horror games are awesome. It seems contradictory, but scaring the pants off yourself is a pretty entertaining way to spend an evening. Shinji Mikami, known for his work on Resident Evil 4, jumped in with a new team to create The Evil Within, a sort of spiritual successor to the iconic survival horror franchise. Mikami is a master of all things scary, so his latest project is sure to surprise, terrify or even emotionally scar you with its claustrophobic locales and disturbing enemies. Make sure you pack your Depends.
