While I already mentioned Bloodborne earlier in this article, I’m not quite done yet. The super interesting Bloodborne: Card Game is currently discounted over at Amazon US, costing only $19.99 for a limited time. That’s reduced from its original $35 price tag. If you’re a tabletop game fan, this one might be up your alley.

In what looks to be a randomly chosen bundle of games, you can currently pick up both Fallout 4 and Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain on Xbox One in one bundle, costing you $28. Quite why these two games are paired up, I have no idea, but getting both of these massive games for under $15 each ain’t bad.
