Peanut butter anniversary time. 

That’s what 5 years is, right? The peanut butter anniversary?

And look, Madden‘s 25th Anniversary is this week, thus dominating most store’s deals. Still, we got a few good ones – Especially since Dragon’s Crown and Diablo III are a recent release and a pre-order.

Dragon’s Crown and Ragnarok Odyssey are on sale via the PSN for the Vita. PS+ members get an additional discount. The deal only lasts until Tuesday afternoon, though.

Toys R Us has Diablo III and Dead Island Riptide on sale via their site for $45 and $30 respectively.

Best Buy is offering Skyrim’s Legendary Edition for $40 this week.

Last year I mentioned the changing face of RPGs and how it would affect the industry. It’s the inclusion of RPG elements into other games, you see. Everywhere I turn there seems to be a level system in place; like in Tomb Raider. And I imagine development costs associated with games extending past the 20 hour mark are atrocious nowadays; but I’m pretty sure that’s just imagination. Non-Elder Scrolls games are just a huge risk. I still wonder about what RPGs will turn into, but the independent scene has also showed a lot in the past year with some Eastern-inspired flair and Western-style games. I’ll just have to keep my eyes open.

In the meantime I’m bashing various enemy heads in FFXIV. It’s pretty sweet. Happy Anniversary.
