Just a quick post listing out a handful of the gaming deals out there as of the middle of this week. I'll lead off with the somewhat disappointing showing by Xbox Live Gold - they have the Battlefield 3 expansion discounted. Not a bad deal I guess in and of itself, but seeing as I have the game for PS 3 and haven't seen a Gold deal I've liked in over a month, I'm a bit disappointed by this one too.
Steam has Bastion for 60% off on its Midweek Madness, placing it at a pretty solid $5.99. Their daily deal still has about 4 1/2 hours left on it as of writing this, called Crazy Machines Complete Pack - half off, so $24.99. It's also worth noting that I have been hearing good things about the Warlock: Master of the Arcane demo, and that my site's been seeing a fair number of hits off from people looking that one up. One blog I follow said it was like Civ meeting fantasy/Dungeons & Dragons. Not a bad combination to aspire for in my opinion. At $20, I may be looking at that one when it comes out May 8th.
Amazon's "Today's Deals" haven't been daily in awhile, but they have weekly ones still and this week features:
Sonic Generations for the PS3 and 360 at $21.70 (57% off)
White Knight Chronicles II for the PS3 at $23.69 (21% off)
Lego Pirates of the Caribbean for the 3DS at $11.99 (so 60% off)
Triton Primer Wireless headset for the 360 at $75.99 (25% off)
GamersGate's steepest markdown right now looks to be Alpha Protocol at 80% as they feature a Sega Week.
Best Buy's Deal of the Day includes Just Dance 3 Katy Perry Edition for the Wii for $13.99 (so 65% off)
Also of note there is still the Botanicula Humble Bundle and the current Indie Gala.
