The Epic Game Store is running a sale featuring PC games up to 75% off. The Epic Mega Sale runs through June 11, and includes a free game you can download each week. The first free game is Grand Theft Auto V, which you can download here. You’ll need an Epic Games Store account with Two-Factor Authorization.

Every Thursday during the sale, a new game will be available to download for free.

Using that coupon will net you another $10 coupon, and so on, as long you purchase games or add-ons worth at least $14.99. Limit one coupon per transaction. Coupons can not be used for in-game purchases, such as Fortnite V-bucks.

Sonic Games up to 50% Off on Switch, 3DS

Posted by | News, Switch | No Comments

Presumably to coincide with the release of the Sonic the Hedgehog feature film (Ben Schwartz, James Marsden), Sega and Nintendo are joining forces to offer a sale of over a dozen Sonic games for Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and Wii U.

Here’s the full list of discounted Sonic games:

Switch

  • Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – $39.99 (33% off)
  • Team Sonic Racing – $19.99 (50% off)
  • Sonic Mania – $9.99 (50% off)
  • Sonic Forces – $9.99 (50% off)
  • Sonic the Hedgehog – $3.99 (50% off)

Nintendo 3DS

  • Sonic the Hedgehog – $2.99 (50% off)
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2 – $2.99 (50% off)

Wii U

  • Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric – $9.99 (50% off)
  • Sonic Lost World – $9.99 (50% off)

We heartily recommend 2017’s Sonic Mania as an excellent return-to-form (but still modern) 2D Sonic platformer, and last year’s Team Sonic Racing is a solid Mario Kart clone.

The Sonic sale ends Feb. 28 at 9 am Pacific/12 pm Eastern.

The sale is running alongside two other Switch publisher sales. The Ubisoft sale ends Feb. 24, and includes Mario + Rabbids, Assassin’s Creed, Just Dance, and South Park with discounts up to 75% off.

The NIS America Shining Stars sale runs through March 1, and features Ys VIII, SNK, and the Disgaea series.

What’s the perfect follow-up to unwrapping a shiny new console for the holidays? A digital game sale! The Nintendo eShop is hosting an indie game sale on the best-selling indie games of 2019. From now through December 28, save up to 40% on some of the best indie games of the last several years.

Here’s a list of all the games on the indie sale:

  • Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition $13.99
  • Cuphead $13.99
  • Slay the Spire $19.99
  • Baba Is You $12.00

We would strongly recommend Ori and the Blind Forest for fans of 2D action-platforming, Slay the Spire as a rogue-like deckbuilding card game, and SteamWorld Quest for a more story-based RPG deckbuilding card game.

The indie game sale isn’t the only sale currently running on the eShop. Just about everything except first-party Nintendo games are discounted.

Capcom games such as Phoenix Wright, Resident Evil, and the Mega Man games, are up to 75% off. Bandai Namco is also hosting a 75% off sale on the eShop, with games like Doraemon Story of Seasons and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. You can also find discounts on Overcooked and Yooka-Laylee (Team17 publisher sale), Mario + Rabbids and Assassin’s Creed (Ubisoft sale), and Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest RPGs on the Square Enix sale.

Each publisher sale runs for a different length of time. Check out the Sales and Deals page on the eShop for more details.
