In this ongoing series, Superhero Hype takes a look at some of the better deals Amazon.com has running as of publication time. We look to find highly rated sci-fi and fantasy games both obvious and not, that come highly recommended, as well as game-related merchandise. (All ideally are cheap or discounted, of course.) Please note that all deals are subject to change or sell out at any time based on supply and demand. Here are the deals for Jan 11.
Jet around as a pilot, or take control of a 20-foot tall war machine, in this multiplayer mech battle sequel. Or take on a new single-player story and do both. All maps, modes, and weapons DLC come free, and at six bucks for the game itself, what can you lose?
Doom: Eternal (PS4)
Though the graphics get ever more realistic and the enemies tougher, Doom sticks to basics. Demons from hell in space want to kill everything, so shoot them first! Simple, but effective. One caveat: Bethesda does make you sign up for an online account in order to play the game.
Join the Phantom Thieves when a summer vacation road trip suddenly becomes a trip to an alternate dimension to rescue prisoners. Fight with action and strategy tactics, visit six Japanese cities, and even cook regional recipes, because why not.
Telltale games brings their story-based gameplay to the world of Pandora, in this five-episode game. A corporate suit and a con artist embark on an adventure together to find stolen cash they both lay claim to. Your choices determine what happens next.
Get the acclaimed sci-fi exploration game along with a making-of documentary, double-sided poster, world map, art book, all in-game weapons and items with descriptions, and a collector’s box. For less than thirty bucks.
Rare Replay – Xbox One
Thirty mostly classic games from the Rare archives, including the notoriously tough Battletoads and always-popular Banjo-Kazooie. Also contains new bonus features and 60-minutes of behind-the-scenes footage.
How did nobody think to mash up the words “gun” and “dungeon” before? Escape from a fortress loaded with bullet-firing deathtraps, while also facing down the Cult of the Gundead. Sometimes when you’re stuck, you just have to gun it.
This turn-based dungeon crawl RPG adds in a factor normally ignored in such games: stress. How the characters deal with the difficulty and death thrown their way is as important as the battles themselves. Paranoia, masochism, fear, irrationality…all part of the charm. Collector’s edition includes all the DLC.
Play classic Mario games in color and black and white on this gold handheld device that mimics the style of the original NES controller. Includes Super Mario Bros., The Lost Levels, and the LCD-style juggling game Game & Watch: Ball, now with Mario.
Fortnite Battle Royale Collection: Tomatohead & Beef Boss – 2 Pack of Action Figures, Multicolor
It’s the endless, eternal struggle that defines life as we know it. Pizza, or cheeseburgers? At last, the battle is literally in the hands of collectors, who can pit these anthropomorphic avatars of junk dining against one another. To the death! Or at least, to the eating. Just don’t eat these toys. Plastic isn’t made for digestion.
