I’m the Christmas elf sharing with you not only the sweetest deals on video games this week but also announcing the third competition winner for a $25 eGiftcard to Amazon. Woohoo, or ho ho ho? Not sure what a Christmas elf should say here. Just exclamations of excitement and joy I suppose. I’ll leave “ho ho ho” for St. Nick.
Anyway, without further ado, the winner of the third $25 Amazon eGiftcard Competition is Sarah M., who is our follower on Twitter with handle @PhancyPheet. Congratulations! We’ll be sending out an email to you today, please respond back confirming which email you’d like the prize delivered to. We are starting a new competition next week and things will be switching up a little. Longer competitions and more money for the winner. How exciting!
Alright, let’s get to those gaming deals! First, the free game at Humble Bundle this week is Company of Heroes 2! This deal isn’t lasting for long so click here and collect that free game! Company of Heroes 2 is a real-time strategy for single and multiplayer. The reviews are generally positive with an 80/100 on Metacritic and 7/10 on Steam. This game is available only for PC, Mac, and Linux.

Now, let me not leave console gamers out this week! For PlayStation 4 the Injustice 2 trial is free…but only until December 18th!
For everyone–PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC–there will be a free Hitman DLC to download. This deal is running from December 15th to January 5th. The full details are here. Pretty much you get a sweet little slice of the game and if you eventually buy the entire thing then all your progress transfers over–yay!
Now, lately, I’ve been getting more and more into mobile gaming. It’s just so accessible! Then it got me thinking how I never include mobile gaming deals. Well, I’m ending that now! Humble Bundle runs mobile gaming deals and they’ve got a sweet one up right now. It is titled Humble Mobile Bundle Indie Hits! This deal will be running through the entire week so there isn’t a huge rush. Take a gander at the deal’s webpage here. There are a lot of options. Games starting at $1, games where you just have to pay over the average of what people are paying, and games for $5. These are all Android exclusive.
Some highlights of this deal are Alto’s Adventure for $1. This game is free to play, however, there are in-game purchases and ads. This $1 version is the premium unlocked version. That means no ads! This is a snowboarding adventure that has received high praise. Snowball for $5 is a pinball game that people absolutely love. It’s got some refreshing and silly features that make it feel fresh.
Alright, let’s get back to PC games because there is often the most deals with those. Right now a really special sale on Steam is 75% off Oxenfree! I’ve featured this game a few times on my blog and it looks like a real winner. Great reviews. It currently costs $5 on sale. This game is a supernatural mystery, graphic adventure video game. The deal is only running until the 17th so don’t wait around too long if this is your cup of tea.

Another Steam deal going on for the next two days is for Killing Floor 2. It’s free! Well, it’s free to play the game for the next three days. You won’t get to keep it. However, if you decide you would like to then you can purchase it for 50% off until December 21st. That means it’s $15. This is a first-person shooter, horror survival game. It has great reviews so definitely worth a free play.

Now, there is a site called Fanatical that is running sweet deals on PC games right now for their Winter Sale. Fanatical might be a place you haven’t heard of before and that is because it previously went by the name Bundle Stars. They made the name switch November first and updates their site for improvements.
So, Fanatical’s home page for their deals is here. Also, use the code WINTER10 and receive an extra 10% off at checkout! They have some great games at good prices. For instance, Bioshock Infinite is only $8.69, which is 71% off. They have Dark Souls III Deluxe Edition 56% off ($36.54). They also have Little Nightmares 51% off, costing $9.79. They have got a ton more games than that though. Civilization, Grand Theft Auto, Borderlands, and XCOM series are all on there for decent percentages off.
Finally, Humble Bundle’s monthly deal is a pretty sweet one. You pay $12 and get Quantum Break, The Long Dark, and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III. However, those aren’t the only games coming to you for that $12. There will be more games given to you later as well, and generally, you’ll get at least $140 in games, sometimes much more. These three games alone have high reviews and are worth the cost. If you decide you like Humble Bundle monthly deals enough you can even sign up to be a recurring receiver of games for as low as $11 a month for a year membership.
