Amazon Prime Day is coming, Tues-Wed July 12-13!

And while doing that, maybe add some amazing games to the stash. Here are the best Amazon Prime Day 2022 countdown games deals that we currently recommend. Please note all deals are subject to sell out or stop at any time.
Go back to the ’90s (in spirit) with this side-scrolling, co-op beat-’em-up featuring the heroes in a half shell, along with more playable characters like Splinter and April. Battle big bosses and fling around the foot in a glorious ode to simpler times, when a roll of quarters and an afternoon at the arcade were just what the weekend ordered.
Two classic Star Wars games. One insanely low price. Compete in pod races across the galaxy, from Tatooine to Malastare. Play as 25 possible racers, though somehow we suspect Anakin Skywalker is the best option. Then, lead a team of super-soldiers on a mission to infiltrate and annihilate the enemies of the Republic, from Trandoshans to the Trade droids.
Two MORE classic Star Wars games! Equally insane low price! In the first game, play as Kyle Katarn, now a Jedi, in first- and third-person action alongside famous heroes of the galaxy. In the second, play alone or online in an action combat game that teaches you the power of the Force.
Mario and his friends and foes engage in a five-on-five sport where there are no disqualifications, and anything goes so long as you score. Use power-ups, equip with new gear, and find teammates online.
Arrakis. Dune. Desert planet. Control it to ensure the spice will flow. Lead one of six factions, and use a combination of warfare and diplomacy. Will you follow Frank Herbert’s storyline, or flip the script and find a new path?
It may have sold below expectations, but that’s not for lack of quality. Get what you’ve been missing. Take control of Star-Lord and lead your team of a-holes into an adventure the size of the universe. Face Adam Warlock, powerful cosmic threats, and even a Rick Roll while rocking out on ’80s tunes. Marvel’s newest, hottest game for just $30? We are Groot. PS4 PS5
