Some of the best deals across the internet from yesterday return on this fine Tuesday morning, including great deals on Gears Tactics and a variety of Pokemon products to celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary. Tuesday has also brought steep discounts on entertainment and tech products, including 4K smart TVs and laptops thanks to a new Best Buy flash sale. We’ve rounded up the best deals of the day. Check out the highlights below:
Gears Tactics released on Xbox during the holidays and has been discounted fairly regularly, but we can’t recall seeing it for more than 50% off. Best Buy’s current deal drops the price of the superb strategy game to only $25. Gears Tactics takes the atmosphere of one of Microsoft’s flagship franchises and adapts it into a thrilling and rich tactical experience filled with clever scenarios and larger-than-life boss battles. It earned an 8/10 in our Gears Tactics review and is playable on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Gears Tactics is also available on Xbox Game Pass.
Counterplay Games’ Godfall released alongside the PS5 last November and is one of the platform’s few console exclusives. The action-RPG is held together by its great combat, and its high-fantasy world is gorgeous thanks to the power of the PS5. While Godfall is certainly repetitive, for those itching for a true next-gen game to play on PS5, it may be worth the plunge at Amazon right now. The retailer has Godfall for $40 right now, down from its normal $70.
Team17’s Overcooked series is an excellent choice for those looking for some family-friendly co-op games. Right now, Amazon has Overcooked: All You Can Eat for $35 on PS5. The bundle contains both remastered Overcooked games as well as all of the DLC released for each. In Overcooked, you have to race to prepare meals for hungry customers across a variety of zany levels. Overcooked demands constant communication between you and your fellow chefs, so it’s ideal for local co-op. To be clear, Overcooked can get quite stressful, but it has a lighthearted tone and colorful cartoon graphics that help make it a hilarious treat.
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX was quietly one of the best exclusives released on Nintendo Switch last year. The remake of the first two entries in the Mystery Dungeon series received a wonderful makeover. Along with a sublime art style, Rescue Team DX significantly improves the combat and exploration from the original 2006 release. The story, which puts the Pokemon front and center, is well-written and arguably one of the best in any Pokemon game. You can pick up Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX for $45 at Best Buy right now.
For those with large hands, playing the Nintendo Switch in handheld mode can be a pain. The Hori Split Pad Pro replaces the Joy-Con, giving the console or more traditional feel. There are other benefits to the Split Pad Pro, too. The joysticks are longer and more closely resemble conventional gamepad sticks. Also, the Split Pad Pro adds a conventional D-pad. You can only use the Split Pad Pro in handheld mode, and it does tend the drain the console’s battery a tad quicker than normal. Amazon currently has the black model on sale for $40.49.
To celebrate Pokemon’s 25th anniversary, GameStop is offering select toys and collectibles for 20% off. The promotion largely focuses on Funko Pops and plushies featuring popular characters such as Pikachu, Eevee, Charmander, and Mew.
Amazon has John Wick: Chapters 1-3 on 4K Blu-ray discounted to a stellar price right now. Normally $45, you can snag the box set for just $25.60. It comes with all three John Wick movies, which are some of the best modern action films.
Best Buy is hosting a 24-hour flash sale featuring a wide variety of products. The best TV deal is on this Hisense 75-inch 4K TV, which dropped from $1,000 to $600. It’s not often you can find a TV of this size for this cheap, so we imagine it will sell out before the sale ends. It’s a smart Android TV, so it supports Google Assistant and all of your favorite streaming apps. Hisense is definitely a budget-friendly brand, but this particular model has extremely solid reviews on Best Buy’s website.
Budget TVs, like the Hisense highlighted above, tend to offer pretty solid picture, but audio tends to be lacking. Pairing your budget TV with a good sound bar is a great idea. As part of Best Buy’s flash sale, you can grab a Samsung sound bar and subwoofer bundle for $160, down from $260. This two-channel sound bar boasts Dolby Audio, which makes it an excellent choice at this price.
If you’re looking for a new laptop for work or school, Best Buy has a great deal on this Dell Inspiron today only. The 14-inch full-HD laptop has an Intel Core i7 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and a 512 GB solid-state drive. While this isn’t a suitable laptop for gaming, it’s more than good enough for every day use.
