Hello hello, gamers! It’s a beautiful Friday in my neck of the woods. I hope you guys go into the weekend with high spirits and have a super fantastic time. Might be high time for a treat yo’ self-weekend. What I mean is, if you got a few extra dollars, it’s a great weekend to buy some games on sale.
Anywho, it’s competition winner day!! I’m super excited! For those unaware, this is the $150 Amazon eGiftCard Competition for Saljack Enterprise’s subscribers. If you signed up for the competition, brace yourselves! The winner is David K., who follows us on multiple Social Media and has twitter handle at https://twitter.com/intent/user?user_id=3017844790. You will receive an email confirmation shortly! Congratulations!! I hope you have a fun time spending the gift card.
If you aren’t a winner this time, don’t lose out hope. A little fairy whispered something to me about a new competition starting up next week. Stay tuned next week! I might be making an announcement on my Monday vlog.
Other than this just being another awesome weekend, it’s the Lunar New Year! That means there are some Lunar New Year Sales. First up, Steam! Here is the home page of their Lunar New Year Sale. Thousands of games are on sale…thousands! Let me go over some highlights. First Witcher 3. Make sure you buy the Game of the Year Edition because it’s the same price as the standard one! That is it is $20.

Another tip from me for this sale is don’t buy Dark Souls III. Why? Well because it’s part of the new monthly Humble Bundle. Which means you can spend $12 bucks on Humble Bundle–here–and get Dark Souls III, plus the Ashes of Ariandel DLC. Plus you’ll get a whole bunch of other games when March rolls around.

Back to the Steam sale. There is Ark: Survival Evolved at 67% off, Left 4 Dead 2 is 90% off (I have such fond memories of this game), Nioh Complete Edition is 30% off, Slime Rancher 33% off, and so many many more. Like I said, thousands of games.
Who wants a free game? Me!! Twitch is offering Sid Meier’s IV: The Complete Edition utterly free until February 21st. You need to have Twitch Prime! What is Twitch Prime? Well, you may or may not know that Twitch is owned by a little company called Amazon. If you have Amazon Prime, then you have Twitch Prime. Just link your accounts! Then you’ll get to reap the benefits of no ads, free monthly subscription to any channel, special emotes, sometimes Overwatch loot boxes and Hearthstone packs, and finally free games. This weekend that free game is Civilization IV. Once your Prime account is linked to your Twitch account, you will see a crown icon next to your username on Twitch. Click that to look at the deals and claim your free game.

Back to it being the Lunar New Year (aka Chinese New Year). Fanatical is running a big sale as well. There will be 24 games on sale, one revealed every hour over 24 hours. Here is the sale homepage. As you might see, you get an extra 8% off when you use the code LUNAR8 at checkout. Two games that stick out while I’m writing this are The Sexy Brutale at 60% and The Evil Within 2 at 55% off. Both impressive games I’ve tried out and recommend. Though the overall list looks pretty impressive at this point. I’m excited to see which games get revealed over the day.

Enough with computer games! Let’s move on to console. It’s the 2K Publisher Sale this weekend for Xbox and PlayStation. Which means 2K games are on sale, of course. There is NBA 2K18, Battleborn, BioShock: The Collection, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, Evolve, Mafia III, WWE 2K18, and XCOM 2.

These are not the only games for sale for consoles though. Here is a rundown of the deals with Xbox Gold this weekend. That includes the 2K Publisher sale as well as everything else. There are lots of Call of Duty games, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (this game is recommended as awesome to play with non-gamer friends), Megaman, Rocket League, and more.

PlayStation, however, is only running the 2K sale this weekend, nothing else. Guess we’ll have to wait for another weekend!
Lastly, a Nintendo Switch deal! There is a build your own bundle deal for Nintendo Switch at Amazon. A leftover Valentine’s Day Sale. It is $350, with an original list price of $467.38. That is 25% off. Here is the link to that.
Now, again let me congratulate the winner of Saljack’s 5th competition! Here is our competitions homepage. Where we will be posting a new competition shortly!
Also, here is the link to this month’s blog about free games for Xbox Gold and PlayStation Plus. If you have either, check out those games. I give a little summary and their ratings. That way you aren’t flying blind into all those free games. Though, yes, they all are free so no reason not to pick them all up.
Happy Lunar New Year! Have fun gaming this weekend.
