Shoestring Gaming returns, where we here at TechRaptor try to save you some money while you buy some great games. Just a reminder, TechRaptor does make money off of some of the links below.


First up, let's take a look at Green Man Gaming. You can get your hands on the Darksiders Franchise Pack, which includes Darkisders, Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition, and the Darksiders II soundtrack for $24.99. Europa Universalis IV: El Dorado is on sale this weekend for $5 as well, with a bunch of other Paradox titles on sale at the moment too.. You can get Fairy Fencer F for $15 and Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth for $12. As always, don't forget the SAVE20-NOVEMB-GAMING code, which can be used for 20% off anything sitewide.

Ori and the Blind Forest


Amazon is currently having a pretty good sale on an Xbox One Bundle that includes Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Rare Replay, and Ori and the Blind Forest, along with a 1TB Xbox One of course, for $399. There are also plenty of other bundles to check out there too. Other than that, Amazon has a pretty good deal for 40% off BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma EXTEND (this seems to only be for the PS4 version).

Humble Bundle currently has a few things going, with the Humble Jumbo Bundle still going. Right now you can get 9 games—which includes games such as Citizens of Earth, Euro Truck Simulator 2, and more—if you pay more than the current $6 bundle. Pay over $9 and you can add two more to that list. Make sure to check out the Weekly Bundle as well, which supports Extra Life. Speaking of which, our 24 hour stream to raise money for Extra Life should still be going as of publishing this article, so check it out! Aside from those, the Humble Store has all kinds of deals to check out, like Grand Theft Auto V for 33% off, a bunch of Saints Row titles for huge discounts, and plenty of other games.


A few days ago the Big Fall Sale at GOG began, where new deals show up every 12 hours, new daily bundles, and you can earn free games depending on how much money you spend. The sale will keep on going until the 15th, so make sure to check GOG regularly to see if there is something you want up for sale. Right now there is a Ys bundle, which includes four games, and a Sim bundle, which includes a Cities in Motion collection, SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition, and Airline Tycoon Deluxe.

You're tantalized with scenes such as this location just outside the Archives in Metro 2033 Redux. If only you could explore all of those other buildings!

GamersGate currently has several games on sale as well, the highlights of which include Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux for $5 each, and Skyrim for $10

As always, make sure to check out TechRaptor's GameFanShop and Games Republic for a bunch of other deals. At the GameFanShop don't forget to use the code Raptorean for an additional discount. The Games Republic Monster Sale has a bunch of deals to check out specifically as well.


Over at Steam we have the Nordic weekend, which includes deals on franchises like Darksiders, Red Faction, Painkiller, Titan Quest, and more. Age of Empires II HD Edition is also currently 80% off on Steam, and the Trine Franchise is on sale too. Of course, Steam always has all kinds of other deals to check out too.

Xbox owners who also happen to be Gold Members can enjoy several discounts, the biggest of which is Wolfenstein: The New Order for $20. Over at Playstation is a Ubisoft sale, which includes discounts on things like Trials, Child of Light, Valiant Hearts, and more. Playstation Plus members have access to some deals on newer games too like Tearaway Unfolded and Blood Bowl 2.

So that's about it, but there are surely more deals out there too. If you see any worth mentioning, let us know!
