Cheap Game Deals – December 2013
The year is ending, which means it’s your last chance to grab 2013′s final gaming deals. Thanks to Amazon, we can end it with a bang with the BioShock Triple Pack. And how fitting, since Rapture goes to hell on New Year’s Eve 1958. While tonight’s festivities will hopefully remain fun and violence-free, you can explore the ruins of Rapture in BioShock and BioShock 2, then marvel at the ingenuity of the floating city of Columbia in BioShock Infinite.
Normally this would set you back $80 for all three games, but Amazon is offering the downloadable PC version of the triple pack for $14.99. That, my friends, is a steal. Of course, there are a few other deals floating about if you didn’t want to explore dystopian societies within a gaming world. Check them out below.
