"Crazy bargains" is old hat, so let's try something new. "Incongruous pricing" isn't bad. "Deranged deals" has alliteration on its side. My favourite, though, is "Barmy bargains", if only because I can say it real good-like in a Cockney accent. And that's what GamersGate has going with its "Bethesda Weekend", offering titles such as Dishonored, Fallout 3 and Skyrim for up to 50 per cent off.
Line up this link in your browser's reticule and pull the trigger and you'll be taken to a lovely page showing all the current Bethesda-related discounts.
The cheapest offering is Fallout 3 at $US4.95. It's a bit long in the tooth, sure, but you get a lot of FPS RPG gaming for your five bucks. If you want something more recent, the "Ultimate" edition of Fallout New Vegas is a toupee more expensive at $US9.95, but it's widely considered the stronger game.
Venturing beyond the vaults we have The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim at an affordable $US17.49. Dragon-slaying doesn't get much cheaper, unless you plan to draw — and then scratch out — little fire-breathing lizards on pieces of paper.
Finally, Dishonored, the most expensive of the four here, beckons you with a sultry $US22.49. What better way to listen to the absent-minded ramblings of a silky-voiced Brad Dourif, beside kidnapping the man and locking him in your attic / basement / underwear drawer?
There are a number of other titles on-sale, so hit up the link below for the full roster.
