Here’s a big one: Every Kingdom Hearts game for $30. The All-In-One package includes playable remasters of Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories, Kindgom Hearts II, Birth by Sleep, Dream Drop Distance and Kingdom Hearts 3, as well as movie versions of other spin-off games. Usually selling for $99, you can get this discount until August 20.
Great licensed games are rare, so get ’em while you can. Last years’ Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order takes place in Star Wars canon after the rise of the Galactic Empire in Episode III. It looks and sounds like Star Wars, and is a pretty darn good game too.
One of the most original RPGs in years, The Outer Worlds is a fantastic revolution simulator set in an ultra-capitalist future. Outside of an imaginative plot and setting, it’s made by the same folks behind Fallout: New Vegas. So you know it’s good.
