Walking Dead Season 2 Discount - A Deal to Die For

Walking Dead Season 2 Discount - A Deal to Die For

image

Buying a game on release day is always a toss up. Good thing there are always deals if you look for them.

Telltale's The Walking Dead: Season 2 is now released, and fans of the franchise should note that there's a solid deal for the PC download version. GMG has a 10% instant discount AND on top of that there's a 25% off coupon code, dropping the price to $16.87. That's a solid $8.12 cheaper than the $24.99 list price at the Steam Store. The game is reviewing quite well thus far.

In just a few months, the stealth action Thief series will make its appearance again after a full decade without a new release. The 2014 Thief PC download will carry a $49.99 price tag on its release day, but if you pre-order now from GMG, there's both a 10% instant discount and a 30% off coupon, dropping the price all the way to $31.50 ($18.49 cheaper). In addition to the discount price, you also get a free "Bank Heist" mission for pre-ordering. Not too shabby.

Aside from these two titles, there are quite a few other good deals today. The Xbox One is still on sale at Best Buy for the standard $499.99 retail price, which beats buying a picture of the Xbox One for $735 on eBay. Two other PC releases today have coupon codes at Green Man Gaming: the Total War: Rome II - Caesar in Gaul expansion is $11.25 and Dementium II HD is only $7.87.

Xbox One Console - $499.99 at Best Buy.

List is $500.

Oh man, that penny off is a good deal :P

But seriously, if you want a new-gen console, don't put off the purchase. It's hard to guess when you'll be able to find 'em in stock.

P.S. Thanks

Good stuff. I might pick up Thief through GMG. Thinking if I should pick up Enemy Within for that price, or wait for Steam Christmas sale..

Is AC4 very glitchy on PC? I'm considering whether to get it on Wii U or PC.

I'm sorry but a 1 cent saving, a deal to die for, it is not.
