Humble Friends of Nintendo Bundle includes SEGA’s Rhythm Thief

RhythmThiefCoinHumbleRhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure was a pretty excellent rhythm game by SEGA on the Nintendo 3DS, it is just too bad it didn’t sell up to expectations. Some consider the game to be one of the rare 3DS games to get physically and if you have always wanted to play the game on the cheap, Humble Bundle will give you a chance along with more Wii U & 3DS games.

Here are the tiers for their Humble Friends of Nintendo Bundle:

Pay $1 or more to get

  • Retro City Rampage: DX (3DS)
  • Affordable Space Adventures (Wii U)
  • Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse (Wii U & 3DS)

Beat the average (right now its $9.57) to get

  • Freedom Planet (Wii U)
  • Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure (3DS)
  • Citizens of Earth (Wii U & 3DS)
  • Retro City Rampage: DX HOME theme (3DS)
  • More games coming soon…

Pay $13 dollars or more and also get 

  • Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Ed ( 3DS)
  • Darksiders II (Wii U)

Just like past Humble Bundles, if you get the top tier you get everything below it. Now is Rhythm Thief & The Emperor’s Treasure worth $10 dollars? Yes! Now put in games like Freedom Planet and Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, makes this a steal. Check the Humble Bundle for yourself.

MakeLoveNotWarBundle1SEGA is giving away free PC games as part of their Make War Not Love event this year, which has been running for three consecutive years. SEGA promised PC gamers that the more they play, they more they win and they weren’t kidding.

PlayStation Essentials Sale slashes prices on Persona games

Persona_4_investigation_team_2Are you a SEGA fan that still hasn’t tried any of the popular Persona series video games? I think now is the time for you to jump on board since Sony has put three entries on sale! All prices are USD. Persona is like Final Fantasy as you don’t need to play the prior ones to enjoy a new entry. Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is a fighting game that continues the plot after the RPG games, FYI:

If the prices aren’t low enough, Playstation Plus members get an extra savings (ranging from 10%-20%). If you have a Playstation Vita I would suggest picking up Persona 4 Golden instead of the PS2 classic version, since it has more content. You can read about that here. The sale ends on January 19th.

If you have an extra $4.00 dollars I suggest you also pick up one of my favorite Playstation One games, none other than Tomba!  a game created by Capcom legend Tokuro Fujiwara.

Check out Relic Entertainment’s Humble Weekly Bundle

HumbleWeeklyRelic

It seems that Humble Bundle has teamed up with SEGA once again, this time to do a Relic Entertainment specific Humble Weekly Bundle. If you have been living under a rock and didn’t know that SEGA purchased Relic Entertainment after THQ went under, thus acquiring all their past games in their game catalog, now you know!

Here are the tiers

Pay at least $1:

  • Company of Heroes 2 – The Western Front Armies: Oberkommmando West
  • Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II
  • Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War
  • Company of Heroes: Complete Edition
  • Company of Heroes 2 Soundtrack
  • Bonus Digital Extras

Beat the average:

  • Company of Heroes 2
  • Company of Heroes 2  The Western Front Armies: US Forces
  • Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II: Retribution
  • Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 

Pay $15 or more:

  • Company of Heroes 2 – Ardennes Assault 

Pay $30 or more:

  • A Relic T-Shirt

I would suggest to at least ‘beat the average’ if you are looking for the best ‘gaming for your buck’. Company of Heroes 2 still retails for around $40 dollars (when not on sale) and not to mention Space Marine is a great 3rd person shooter with a lengthy single player campaign. Also remember its all to support charity, so its for a worthy cause.

SonicSaleHumble

Open up your E-Wallets folks! There’s a big sale going on at Humble Bundle and SEGA is one of the main publishers, so get in on the big clearance ‘cuz everything must go! Although, technically it’s digital so it really doesn’t go anywhere. Just…data gets copied from a server and onto your computer but that data also stays at the server so it’s not like…..NEVERMIND! Anyway,here are some of the great SEGA deals going on:

And many many more! The sale ends soon, so come on down and take a gander.

Yakuza 4 coming to Playstation Plus next month

yakuza4header

So the news that Yakuza 5 will be getting a western release was very exciting, but some of you might not have actually played a Yakuza game before. So it’s a good thing that next month all Playstation Plus subscribers will be able to download Yakuza 4 for the Playstation 3. You won’t need to have played any of the previous Yakuza games to start with it either, as every Yakuza game includes hefty recaps of the games before it.

NeoGAF member YianGaruga spotted that the game will be included in next month’s Playstation Plus games on the German Playstation Blog. (Update: Now confirmed for the US as well) The other games that’ll be available are Apotheon and Transistor for Playstation 4, Thief for the Playstation 3, Kick and Fennick for the Playstation Vita, and Rogue Legacy for all of the previously mentioned platforms. So overall a pretty good selection of games, though Yakuza 4 is the only one of them that’s about being a bad-ass in Japan.

First 4 Figure’s Skies of Arcadia statue available to pre-order at 12% discount

Vyse

Its no secret that First 4 Figures aren’t cheap and saving any type of cash on these expensive but well crafted figures is a nice relief to one’s wallet. Well, the online shop where I pre-order my comicbooks also does pre-orders for figures, statues and all that jazz; including the First 4 Figure’s Vyse statue.

If you pre-order through DCBS, you just need to pay the shipping (which is like 6 dollars within the United States) on top of their 30% discounted price of $175.96. That may seem like a lot, but consider that the figure is 17 inches tall and originally costs $199.99 on First 4 Figure’s website, that’s a nice discount.

Atlus has discounted all Persona PSP titles to $4.99

Picture-15
Altus has now dropped the price of the following PSP Persona ports: Persona, Persona 2: Innocent Sin and arguably the best deal in the bunch Persona 3 Portable. The titles will now only cost you $4.99 and are playable on both the PSP and the Playstation Vita.

Persona 3: Portable is as enhanced remake of the PS2 Persona 3 game but with added content. The player can now play the game as a female, which alters the game including characters you meet and social links (which are important in this title). In my opinion, Persona 3 Portable is the best version of Persona 3 and its only $5, totally worth it.
