Riders Republic | $50
Ever want to ride a bike downhill across Zion? What about gliding across in a freaking jetpack? Riders Republic: Limited Edition’s massive multiplayer open-world lets you hop in and ski, snowboard, bike, or fly through its beautiful national parks. Enjoy the nice serene views alone or join the chaos of 50 people on bikes toppling over each other on a single narrow path. It was only released a few days ago, but Amazon already has the game on PS5, PS4, and Xbox consoles for just $50.
Hades (PS4/PS5) | $20
Hades is unquestionably my Game of the Year of 2020, and hell, it’s still the game I’ve played most this year with 100+ hours logged. The game rips. Zagreus is fun and charming as is the entire cast of Olympic and Chthonic gods you interact with. The combat is tight and rewarding and each weapon is fun to use in its own way. If you have not played this yet because you don’t have a Nintendo Switch or a gaming PC, the good news is it finally launched on PlayStation. It’s $20. Go get it.
Miitopia | $42
Miitopia had originally released as a 3DS game and is one of the latest ports to make its way to the Nintendo Switch. This approachable RPG taps into your and your friends’ Mii catalog to create the faces of all characters you encounter and play through the story. This means your mom could be a wizard friend helping you along the way or the big bad of the whole campaign might be Hank Hill. You can pick up a copy from Amazon for only $42.
With Borderlands Legendary Collection, XCOM 2, BioShock: The Collection, and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition now on Switch, you’re going to need a bigger SD card. But oftentimes more storage means more money—more money most of us don’t have in the midst of a global pandemic. At the very least, SanDisk’s officially Nintendo-licensed 128GB microSD card is only $22 over on Amazon.
Logitech G502 Gaming Mouse | $40-103
If you’re looking for a good gaming mouse, let me show you Logitech’s G502 wireless Lightspeed gaming mouse, which is $103 at Amazon. The impressive accessory boasts 1 ms wireless connectivity, making it particularly accurate. Most exciting for me though is its 11 programmable buttons. That level of customization makes this little black and blue guy a perfect companion for shooters especially. For even more savings, you can get the wired Logitech G502 HERO gaming mouse for a measly $40. If you have the USB port to spare, it’s a no-brainer.
Hot Wheels Unleashed | $44
When it comes to kart racers, Mario and his crew seem to have a near-monopoly, but there’s some really cool stuff going on elsewhere. Hot Wheels Unleashed, which you can get for only $44, has systems built around drifting and boosting (as you’d expect), but also gravity. There’s an elaborate track builder which is the heart of playing with Hot Wheels toys.
DEATHLOOP | $40
From the creators of Dishonored and Prey, the latest immersive sim from Arkane is out, and folks, it kicks ass... In DEATHLOOP, you play as Colt—a man stuck on an island where everyone including himself is in a time loop. This game is still brand new having been released only last month and it’s already down to $40. Don’t let that make you think it’s low quality—this is a real GOTY contender right here.
This epic multiplayer medieval mayhem simulator is an absolute joy. Take part in full-on castle sieges and enter into large chaotic battles where swords and pike are swinging around left and right. The best part is this is not a serious game in the slightest. Really. It’s just as fun to die as it is to kill. You have a dedicated battlecry button. Some of the best parts are just respawning with your allies and all yelling as you storm back into battle. The game knows what it is. It’s just fun. Pure unfiltered fun. Grab Chivalry II: Day One Edition on PS5 for just $36.
If you’ve ever looked at the standard Xbox controller and thought, “This needs more glowing lights,” hold on to your hat cowboy. Razer’s Wolverine Tournament Edition wired controller is currently marked down to $100. So, what do you get for twice the cost of a regular Xbox One controller? A number of customization options include extra programmable buttons and it glows. Obviously.
Madden NFL 22 | $36-$50
Madden season is upon us! Nothing gets me more hyped for the fall than the release of Madden. It’s time to see what you can do with the pigskin. You can catch it on PS4 or Xbox One for $36. If you have the current gen console, go with the PS5 version for $50 or the Xbox Series X version for $41.
