    Well, Amazon Prime Day(s) start(s) (it’s two days this year so pluralizing it is weird) at midnight Pacific tonight. In fact, a few deals are already live, like 25% back on digital game gift cards if you have an Amazon Prime Store Card/Visa Card. I’ve heard some people are trying to use this to get Xbox cards and then use those to buy an Xbox Series X.

    Yeah, I'm guessing everyone's sweating Prime Day more than usual due to COVID boosting online purchases.

    Best Buy and Target are both basically particiapating in Prime Day.

    Best Buy actually has 1 deal worse than their weekly deals (NBA 2k21 went up in price from their deal listing yesterday), and they have a couple deals like Last of Us 2 for $39.99 and Madden 21 for $37.99. They also have some other deals that are pretty similar to normal weekly deals they have, plus some computer gaming deals.

    Target
    $39.99
    Mario Tennis Aces
    New Super Mario Bros U
    Splatoon 2
    Super Mario Party
    Yoshi's Crafted World

    $29.99
    Madden 21
    UFC 4
    Jedi Fallen Order (same price at Best Buy)

    $19.99
    Sims4 Bundle + Star Wars
    NFS Heat

    $13.99
    Control PS4 (11.49 on Xbox One)

    There are more deals too, it seems Target is the better option than Best Buy, even better if you have a Red Card.

    I was looking through the Prime Day video game category and it has antivirus software on it. If you scroll far enough I guess it just forgets what it was supposed to be showing you and says, well this is close enough.

    SEGA is giving away some games!
    • First up is Streets of Kamurocho, a Streets of Rage style beatemup featuring Yakuza characters.
    • Next is Sonic 2 which they've done before so you might already have it, but go get it again?
    • On October 18th, and only that day, they're making Golden Axed. It's a prototype of a 2.5D Golden Axe game that was never released (hence the punny name). In their words, "Golden Axed may be janky, may be buggy, may be an artifact of its time, but it offers a unique glimpse into the prospect of a project that could have been, and a rare peek behind the curtain at the sometimes tumultuous world of video game development."
    • Also coming is Armor of Heroes which is some kind of.. shootemup maybe? Top down? I have no idea, but it's free.
    • Endless Zone is a side-scrolling game they say is inspired by Fantasy Zone.
    • Lastly, sign up on their website for a free copy of Nights Into Dreams

    The load of free games, including what amounts to a prototype/press demo, is super fucking cool. Happy 60th Birthday, SEGA!

    Regarding Gamestops and dying, apparently they inked a deal with MS where every Xbox Series X bought at Gamestop gives GS a cut of the digital download sales in perpetuity.

    It won't save Gamestop, but it might help with the bleeding for a bit.

    Why on earth would Microsoft agree to that? Unless GameStop is going to tell all their employees to say that the other Xbox and both versions of the ps5 are powered by the heart of an orphan child I guess. That would probably move a few units.

    its weird for sure. MS closed a bunch of stores (pre-covid) so maybe this is a way for them to have a physical presence in more places? Definitely seems like something else has to be going on for that deal to make any sense.

    A future lifetime of targeted extreme ads? And Halo?

    I guess somebody will want it.

    even those with a base gmail account can usually filter these pretty easy. let's say your email is [email protected], you can enter your email as [email protected] and you'll get the email and have gmail filter anything with +junk to a special folder.

    Some email entry forms are wise to this, though.

    If someone were looking to save money buying PC games I'd point them straight to Gamepass as a first option.

    The incredible value of Game pass is a glaring weakness in Sony's plan to conquer the world console market.
