Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal and Rise of Lyric receive Nintendo eShop price drops through March 21st

Shattered Crystal 3DS box

Both Sonic Boom video games, Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for the 3DS and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for the Wii U, are currently on sale over at Nintendo’s eShop. Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal has dropped from $39.99 to $19.99 (50%), and Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric has dropped from $29.99 to $19.99 (33%) while the original retail price was $49.99. If you’ve yet to experience either game, and really really want to own it digitally, these are the lowest prices as of yet. Meanwhile, the physical versions are about on par with the $19.99 price point at select stores. We have been told that these prices go through March 21st.

I reviewed Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal way back with it released, and awarded it a C+. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric has yet to receive a SEGAbits review, but from my experience I’d avoid it and just check out the 3DS game.

Thanks to SEGAbits Forums member fernadeth for the tip!

Screen Shot 2016-03-11 at 1.52.22 PM

SEGA Publisher Weekend has kicked off on Steam, offering up great deals on several quality titles. The promotion, which can be found by clicking here, features a variety of games ranging from The Creative Assembly’s Total War: ATTILA and Relic’s Company of Heroes 2 to Valkyria Chronicles and Tembo the Badass Elephant. There are also bundles, including the Sonic Games Collection and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War – Master Collection. Discounts range from 50-75% off, so if you have been holding off on some SEGA steam games in hopes of a sale, now is the time to buy.

I personally would suggest Valkyria Chronicles and Tembo as well as the Sonic Games Collection and Total War Master Collection Sept 2014. Total War is one of those franchises I’ve always wanted to check out, and the bundles are a great way to experience it. I picked it up in a past promotion and loved it!

Accessorize yourself with new classic SEGA console products from Numskull, and save 10% with our promo

Screen Shot 2016-01-27 at 10.35.53 AM

There has been a serious uptick in quality of SEGA products over the past year, and UK company Numskull is one of the offical SEGA licensees to thank for this. In the past month they have released a variety of cool everyday and formal accessories that pay tribute to classic SEGA hardware. Products include keychains, wallets, and cufflinks that feature SEGA Mega Drive, Genesis and Master System designs. They also have notebooks that are in the shape of the Mega Drive, Game Gear, Saturn and Dreamcast. Numskull were nice enough to send us some samples, which we will detail in a soon to come video.

The quality is top notch, and I especially love how the products are both true to the original hardware and stylish enough not to make you look like a little kid. I mean, only a real sophisticated man wears Mega Drive/Genesis controller cufflinks. I took some time actually using these to see how durable they are day to day, and am happy to report that they stand up well to everyday use.

If you live in the UK, you can check out their line of products at the Numskull online shop. As an added bonus, using the promo code SEGABITS10 at checkout will knock 10% off all non-sale items.

If you live in the US, you can find the Genesis controller cufflinks on Amazon.

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.

You can now save up to 85% on some of the best Total War games, if you are a SEGA fan and haven’t tried the series out, you might want to check out this sale. I recommend trying Total War: Shogun 2 to start off.  I know there have been a few friends that have wanted to try this franchise out and now that the prices on this sale are decent enough, it won’t cost you too much to dip your fingers in.

The best part is that most of the Total War games use Steam and support all the features like cards, achievements and some even support the Workshop.

Deals: Answer a question about toilet paper, get $7 off the Wreck-It Ralph blu-ray

Screen Shot 2013-02-22 at 12.01.47 PM

Okay, aside from a number of SEGA character cameos in the movie itself, and Sonic, Eggman and Neff appearing on the cover, Wreck-It Ralph news is not entirely SEGA related. But we figured a number of SEGA fans who enjoyed the movie might be picking it up on blu-ray when it releases in two weeks in the US. Courtesy of the folks at Scott (the tissue and toilet paper people) comes a $7 coupon for use with either the blu-ray + DVD combo pack or the blu-ray + blu-ray 3D + DVD + digital. To get the coupon, you’ll need to do the following:

Head on over to Scott Shared Values and sign in or register for an account. Then answer one question and you will get a code for a $7 off Disney’s Wreck It Ralph Blu-ray Combo Pack coupon! To redeem the codefollow the link and log into your Disney Movie Rewards Account (or create an account). There, you can enter the code and you will be able to print. Keep in mind that this movie isn’t released until 3/5, but you may want to print this coupon now as I’m not sure how long it will be available. Also note that this coupon is only valid through Friday, 3/8, so you will only have a few days to use it once the movie is released. And, be sure to let us know if you score a great deal!

Considering early ads have leaked for stores, including Target, one could get the blu-ray + DVD combo pack for a mere  $12.99 or the blu-ray + blu-ray 3D + DVD + digital combo pack for a cool $20.99.

Sonic franchise pack available for 77% off on Steam

Steam is having their holiday sales, which means all PC gamers will be broke by new years. If you want to join in on the sale, but where waiting for some SEGA stuff to hit discount then you are in luck. The Sonic franchise pack is 77% off, giving you 15 Sonic items (not games, since some of it is DLC). You’ll even get newer stuff like Generations and All-Stars Racing (not Transformed).

But hey, a big pack isn’t for you? Single items are being discounted up to 50%. Check it out. There is also the SEGA publisher pack for $70 (sadly low on the Sonic).

SEGA digital deals roaming around the internet [submit yours]

Getting on with the savings, here is a short list of digital SEGA goods you can buy right now. If I left stuff out, submit it via the comments. Happy shopping.

Steam has Renegade Ops on sale for a little over $5


That is correct, Steam right now has Renegade Ops on sale for $5.09, that is 66% off its regular $14.99 price point. If you have been waiting for awhile to pick this game up, this is the sale you want to pounce on. Not only that, the game is part of Steam’s “Great Gift Pile drawing“, basically you buy the game during the sale, unlock a specific achievement and get into a drawing to win another free game. Brilliant strategy by the guys behind Steam to get you to buy more games.

For the more hardcore, you can still pick up SEGA’s complete pack for $99.99. This includes all of their Steam games.
