Amazon.com, clearly not run by
Rebecca Black fans, is apparently unaware that Friday is only one day
out of seven: the site's turned the whole week into Black Friday yet again, and
is offering a plethora of game downloads at 50% or more off.
Completists willing to wait until January 2012 will also get a bonus
coupon for use on any 2011 bestsellers – provided you give in to
instant gratification with at least one of these downloads.
Above: Oh yeah! This is why there are PC gamers
There's a pretty wide
selection on offer here: besides big names like The Witcher 2 and Driver San Francisco, discounts also bring indie hits like Shadowgrounds Survivor and the Penumbra series below the $10 mark.
Older titles like Desperados and the UFO trilogy sit alongside sneaky
not-quite-50%-off deals on Duke Nukem Forever and the original Darksiders. There's also over 300 casual-themed titles: if ever you
felt your computer lacked a Mahjongg game, now's the time to get one
for about the price of a coke.
All these deals come with a
$5 voucher which doesn't become active until next January, at which
time you'll be able to spend it on any bestsellers from this year.
Then you can rub your discounted copies of Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim
or Arkham City right in the faces of everyone who's been enjoying
the games since release day. Suckers.
