Green Man Gaming is offering some great prices on new and upcoming digital games in their VIP sale. Here are some highlights, but check out the full list for more. Personally, I’m in for Cities: Skylines.
Don’t see what you’re looking for? This 20% off code is valid on almost everything else on their site. [20% off Most Digital Games with promo code KPMN32-6VRM69-6INRND. Some exclusions apply.]
Microsoft has pushed out an unprecedented number of digital deals for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 today. Here’s the complete list.
Note that you’ll get a better price if you’re an Xbox Live Gold member. Here’s 12 months for $39.
We’ve got ourselves a fresh Humble Bundle, and this time around, you can pay what you want for a variety of Square Enix games. You’ll get Hitman: Absolution, Hitman: Go, and Supreme Commander 2 no matter what you pay, but Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, Thief, Deux Ex Human Revolution, and Murdered: Soul Suspect are locked behind (very reasonable) minimums. [Humble]
The scariest game of 2014, down to a scary-low price. [ Alien: Isolation, $25]
Here’s a pair of combo deals that bring some great movies down to $4 or less each.
These aren’t the best iPad deals we’ve ever seen, but they’re definitely up there. Plus, you get to choose from a huge variety of models, capacities, and colors. [Staples iPad Sale]
Most mechanical keyboards are marketed towards gamers, but Das Keyboards are a typist’s dream. Their newest, the Das Keyboard 4, is only $125 shipped for a refurb right now, a significant savings off of the usual $169 price tag. You even get to choose from either the Professional or blank key-sporting Ultimate, as well as Cherry MX Blue or Brown switches.
While the key caps differ between the two models, they both have the same core feature set.
- Media controls with oversized volume knob
- Two-port USB 3.0 SuperSpeed hub
- Anodized aluminium top panel
- Full n-key rollover
- Gold-plated mechanical key switches
As for the switches, Lifehacker has a great explainer on the different options, and you can also buy an inexpensive sampler to try all of them yourself. I prefer the obnoxiously-loud Blue switches myself, but Browns are more popular among gamers, and a bit less clicky. [Woot]
The DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ drone has descended below $1,000, just in time for tax refund season. This model comes with a built-in camera and 3-axis gimbal for silky smooth video, and Gizmodo gave it a terrific review. We posted this deal last week, but I just ordered one for myself, and I’m giddy about it, so it’s getting shared again.

If you still enjoy receiving paper magazines in the mail, Amazon’s selling subscriptions to over a dozen from Time Inc. for $5/year today. [Subscribe to a variety of Time Inc. magazines for $5/each per year]
There were some nice package deals on the incredible GoPro Hero4 Black around Black Friday, but this is the best cash discount we’ve seen, especially considering that most buyers won’t have to pay sales tax. [GoPro Hero4 Black, $430]
These little stick-anywhere motion-sensing lights are great for cabinets, closets, sheds, and dark hallways at night, and today you can get two for the price of one.
You can’t control these deadbolts with your phone or anything too futuristic, but being able to unlock your house with a key code can really come in handy when you have friends visiting, or a house sitter watching your pets. This price is only available today, or until sold out. Multiple finishes available. [Schlage BE365 PLY 619 Plymouth Keypad Deadbolt, $71]
This is one of the better price/mAh ratios we’ve seen on a USB battery pack. [Aukey 20000mAh External Battery Pack Power Bank, $27 with code S76A86Y6]
The Panasonic Lumix LX100 is the best camera for parents, possibly the best small camera ever made, and down to just $732 right now (its previous lowest price was $796). The LX100 features great Leica glass, way way more usable controls than you’d expect on a camera this size, and most impressively, a Micro Four-Thirds sensor. [LX100, $732]
Giant ice cubes are perfect for drinks that you don’t want to dilute, and the Tovolo King Cube is one of the most big cube ice tray you can get. The green model is under
$6 today, which is the best price we’ve ever seen. [Tovolo King Cube Square Ice Cube Tray, $7]
Update: The $6 green model sold out, but the blue is down to $7, which is decent.
Over the weekend, Gizmodo EIC Annalee Newitz waxed poetic about her new Android-compatible flash drive, and we’ve found a terrific deal today on a similar item. It still has a microUSB connector opposite the standard USB, but it’s even smaller than the Corsair she wrote about, and cheaper too. So why would you want one of these things?
The awesome part is that it has a micro USB connector on one side, and USB 3.0 on the other. Perfect for moving all the pictures and vids from my phone to another machine. I always carry a spare flash drive with me, and this was a big upgrade — mostly because I’m sick of uploading files from my phone to Dropbox or Drive in order to get them onto my laptop. I want to save things locally, not pass them through somebody else’s server farm.
I’d also add that these are great for storing movies and other media for long trips, especially if your phone or tablet is running low on storage. But whatever your motivations, we don’t know how long this deal is set to last, so grab one while you can. There are also smaller capacities available at lower prices. [Kingston Data Traveler 64GB, $29]
If you need a gift idea for your favorite Game of Thrones fan, HBO is taking 20% off any $50 order of Game of Thrones merchandise with promo code WESTEROS. With these prices, you won’t need to be a Lannister to pay your debts. [20% off Game of Thrones Merchandise orders over $50 with promo code WESTEROS]
Don’t forget, you can still get Season 4 on Blu-ray for $35 today. We expect that price to shoot up in the near future, based on previous years’ releases.
Rickert’s quiet, introspective story about three aging witches who used to be best friends is a perfect complement to Grossman’s trilogy, actually — it has some of the same thoughtful exploration of magic and its consequences. But it’s also impressive how much suspense Rickert manages to achieve in a book where the stakes are super low. I was on the edge of my seat reading about the precarious coming of age of a young girl who was found in a shoe box, and now lives in a house surrounded by a garden of discarded shoes.
We’re not sure what the special occasion is, but there are a ton of Studio Ghibli Blu-rays down to $20 right now.
Don’t settle for Apple’s overpriced Lightning cables.
