RPG Deals 5/23 – 5/29

Behold!  The burning rays of sun on a drought of deals! Unless you buy a new 360, or want What Did I do to Deserve This, My Lord!? 2 for $20.

The lack of witticisms aside, there really is nothing strictly RPG-related this week.  There are a couple deals of interest.

GameStop has What Did I Do etc., 2 for 20 bucks. Last I checked, it had the first game on there as well.  Not bad, GameStop.

Toys R Us has a deal on new releases – “Buy 1 game get a second game $20 off” – but it’s only available on select games and none of them are RPGs.  On the other hand, if you’re looking to replace your 360 or buy a new one, TRU is throwing in 3 free platinum hits games from a selection of 15 titles when a customer buys a 360.  Mass Effect is definitely  one of the titles, but I would not be surprised if Fable II was another one.

K-Mart is offering Bioshock 1 & 2 for $50.  Bioshock may not be an RPG, but its similar elements have attracted many an RPG fan to the game.  The first game is a wonderful experience, and the second game is pretty fun once you ignore the premise.

You’ve probably heard of the upcoming DS RPG Metal Max 3 if you read RPG Land. Well, those interested in catching up on this series can snag the previous title, Metal Saga for PlayStation 2, at Play-Asia for less than $20. It comes recommended for people who crave a non-linear RPG.

At this time I would urge you to take a peak at your favorite online store’s inventories or any RPGs you might have missed.  I’ve stumbled across $4 copies of Blue Dragon on Amazon.com, and supposedly there are $15 copies of Muramasa out there.  It’s a slow time, folks.  Stores want to get rid of inventory fast.

That’s all I got.  Happy Hunting.

Disclaimer: Deals may not be available in all stores. Prices in each store may differ. You can try different stores to mitigate this, and always ask if a store has it before writing them off. You might be able to get a raincheck. A lot of these deals are in-store only, except where specified.
