Buying a copy of the game on Amazon US or Best Buy will get you a copy for just $29.99, without having to buy pre-owned or via shady dealers.As all of you probably know at this point, the game released last month to a very bumpy reception, as any critical praise was heavily tempered by technical issues and missing features. However, CD Projekt Red have promised major update patches in January and February, which may go a long way…

Amazon UK is doing cheaper controllers for the Nintendo Switch

By Joel Franey, Monday, 4 January 2021 12:04 GMT Those who’re living in the UK can get discounted Nintendo Switch controllers at the moment from Amazon, assuming they’re happy to try going off-brand. There’s Pokemon-branded Switch Controllers featuring all the newest starters, as well as a limited-time lightning deal on the “Gamory” brand of controller that’s lowered it to less than £15.That being said, the Gamory isn’t especially attractive to look at. Nonetheless, its low price and high review scores may make it worth it, especially to those who are buying on a budget. Better be quick if you are…

Secretlab are still offering discounts on their great big gamer chairs

By Grace Curtis, Wednesday, 30 December 2020 15:33 GMT Let’s do a little experiment. Flex your shoulders back and count how many times your spine goes pop. Personally I’d put it at somewhere between fifteen and thirty, but that’s just me. Maybe it’s time to invest in a better chair – like those gigantic cushioned thrones they sell at Secretlab, which are currently on sale. This offer is actually a holdover from the Christmas sale, which has morphed into an end of year thing, meaning there’s still a few days left to place an order if your lower back is starting…

The exception here is the ASUS ROG Zephyrus M15, a good…
