SALE ENDS 3/21/16
We’re back with more deals, deals, deals. So many deals, you will think you’re being swindled by your local car salesman. Well I’m no car salesman, but I have to tell you about these deals. We’ve got a lot of deals to go over, so lets get this show started. First off and highest on my list of deals to mention is the Ubisoft sale on the Xbox One. Now whether you hate Ubisoft or love them, there are some fantastic games. I will admit there lineup is a little hit or miss. A big hit that I can not talk up enough is Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, one of the most underrated games of 2015. It’s on sale for 50%, or the Complete Edition for 40% off. I would highly recommend the Complete Edition, as it will get you all operators from Year 1 as well as Year 2. If the funds in your wallet are a little low, you can survive with just the core game. When I saw Steep was already 50% off, I had to scratch my head since it hasn’t been out that long. Still it might be worth trying if you are into snowboarding games. The Assassin’s creed games are all on sale, as well as Watchdogs 1 and 2, Far Cry 4 and Primal. There are honestly too many games to mention. Head on over to the link to check it out yourself.
