Memorial Day Weekend Gamer Kit

Saturday, May 28, 2011

I was looking around at what kind of gamer goodies are up for grabs this Memorial Day weekend. I found more than a few specials. Here they are:

Deus Ex Human Revolution - Augmented EditionDeus Ex Human Revolution is a first person RPG. Unlike other RPG's, improving your player in Deus Ex involves body modifications, not weapons upgrades, potions or spells. Human Revolution is actually the series' third installment, but it's timeline is a prequel to the first two game releases. In the first two, augmentations were based on nanotech. In Human Revolution, body augmentations are in biomech. Sounds like a Sci-Fi fanatic's dream role-playing game, eh? You can get a glimpse of the gameplay by heading on over to for their preview. Deus Ex Human Revolution is currently pre-ordering and you can get 10% for the entire pre-order period. 10% off ($49.95) when you buy Deus Ex Human Revolution and 10% off ($59.95) when you buy Deus Ex Human Revolution Augmented Edition from Gametap.

Total War: Shogun 2Shogun 2 is the second installment of the Total War - Shogun series. To be honest, I've only played Total War - Rome. But the game play was a great combination RTS with turn-based strategy. You play turns on th map and you fight battles in real-time strategy mode. The Total War series, in RTS mode, brings us back to times in history when wars were fought by the man. No fancy smart weapons or long-range nuclear missiles. You command a troop or a whole army and charge into each victory while enjoying the nice effects and scenery. That's what gets me. The reviews are encouraging and I might get this title myself. IGN rated Shogun 2 a 9/10 and Gamespot Asia rated it 9/10. Shogun 2 is 33% off until Monday 30th on Gametap.

GameTap - Buy and Download Hundreds of PC Hits!Dirt 3 is the third release of the popular rally racing title. The graphics are even more stunning and game-play improved over it's predecessors. New maps come standard with this release. As always, driving expensive cars safely at super high-speeds in a variety of locales means getting in front of a large-screen TV and turning the console on. Would you risk wrecking a perfectly tuned Beamer to race it on a difficult to manuever dirt road in the real world? Go get your game on, because IGN rated this an 8.5/10 for the great game-play. You can get the latest edition of Dirt with 14% off:, $42.95 instead of $49.95 when you go to GameTap.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of KingsWitcher 2 is a sequel to the original Polish game title Witcher. It's an RPG along the story line that Witchers are warriors trained to use magic starting at an early age. It's personally not my favorite genre of game, but I have got to give props to the graphics on this thing. You have got to head on over to to check out their review of Witcher 2. The have got great screen previews of the game. GamesRadar rates Witcher 2 a 10, while Gamespot Asia rates it an 8.5/10. Witcher 2 is 10% off: $44.95 instead of $49.95 when purchased from GameTap.

And what sports nut does not like playing NBA? NBA 2K11 is out and it's 13% off when you go for it on GameTap: $17.25 instead of $19.95. If you don't have the moves on the actual hardcourt, well take out your controller son. Because you can slam your way to a win on this one. Joystiq rated it a 4.5 out of 5 stars for it's realistic game-play and improved AI.
