Elden Ring is the latest release by FromSoftware, known primarily for the Dark Souls series and Bloodborne. Their signature appeal has widely become around the difficulty (but fairness) of their combat, obtuse narratives, and wide range of customization when it comes to how your character plays. All of that is here in Elden Ring but now in a vast open world. And let me tell you, this game is massive. If you’ve been curious about the hype but hesitant to drop $60, well, you’ll be happy to know the game is $15 off.

The Horizon series suffered twice from poor release timing. The first game came out right when Breath of the Wild did and then the sequel came out alongside Elden Ring. It’s unfortunate because both are excellent action RPGs with cool open worlds to explore. If you missed out, now is your chance to hop into Horizon Forbidden West for just $40.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure | $45

While not officially a new LittleBigPlanet game, Sackboy: A Big Adventure takes the lovable hero from that series and transports much of its creative ethos in a different kind of platform-action game with 3D environments. This one’s purely a game to play, not one with creation and sharing elements, but it’s a fun one, especially for the family.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy | $29

Square Enix’s new adaption of Guardians of the Galaxy follows their middling take on Marvel’s Avengers. While the latter brought on some mixed feelings about a decent single-player experience with a poor attempt at a live-service game, Guardians of the Galaxy drops any and all live-service elements in favor of a single-player story taking on the role of solely Star-Lord. And it’s actually pretty dang good!

NBA 2K23 | $40

Hoop it up with NBA 2K23, now marked down dramatically by $30. 2K Sports’ simulation series is a winner year in and year out, and this year’s version brings an array of enhancements to the various play modes.
