The Best of the GameStop Summer Deals

Written by Robert Workman

Right now, GameStop has a pretty good sale going on, with hundreds of games marked down in price.And while several of them appear to be out of stock, there are a few that you can still pick up for a pretty good bargain. Let’s run down some of the better ones that you can get for a good price, if you hurry!

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy (Nintendo Switch)- $9.99

Okay, so this likely won’t replace Samurai Shodown or King of Fighters XIV in your fighting collection anytime soon, if ever. But for a silly fighting game with a little bit of sexiness on the side, this isn’t a bad pick-up at all. Featuring a cast of all-stars from the SNK legacy, and some fun fighting tactics with a bit of hotness, the game has a lot to offer fans. Not to mention that there’s some unlockable goodness here, as well as some DLC characters for a few extra dollars. It’s not a bad price, considering it originally went for, what, $60? In fact, it could be a bargain for some.

The World Ends With You: Final Remix (Nintendo Switch)- $19.97

This title was full price just a few short weeks ago, and now you can relive this adventure for a bargain basement price and add it to your collection forever. Considering that a lot of folks missed it on the portable front the first time around, this is your chance to make up for lost time. This Square Enix classic has never been better, and the utilization of its touch-screen controls makes it perfect for on-the-go play. Plus, it looks fantastic on the portable screen. And did we mention it’s perfect for those long on-the-go trips? Because it is.

The Lego Marvel Collection (PlayStation 4)- $19.99

For $20, you get not one, not two, but three great Marvel games in one package. You get Lego Marvel Super Heroes, Lego Marvel’s Avengers and Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2, along with all respective DLC for each game, including the bonus characters. That’s a tremendous value in its own right, and it’s all unlocked right from the get go. What’s more, each game offers co-op support, so you can play alongside friends and family and conquer the bad guys together. Take that, Thanos! Also available for Xbox One.

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom (PlayStation 4)- $9.99

Easily one of the most beautiful side scrolling adventures ever made, Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is a wondrous throwback to the classic Wonder Boy games of old. Take part in an old school thrill ride as you try to vanquish the land of evil, transforming into different characters along the way and solving puzzles as you do so. Vintage adventure games don’t get much better than this. And, for that matter, much cheaper, folks. I mean, ten bucks?!

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 (Xbox One)- $19.99

Now here’s a deal that you just can’t beat. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is a captivating online game in which you can team up with your friends and try to take back Washington D.C. any way you see fit, while checking out new missions with a little help from your Division. A fantastic looking game that continues to evolve with additional content, this is well worth the $20 – and then some. Also available for PlayStation 4.

Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition (Xbox One)- $14.99

When GameStop made this available earlier in the year, it sold like hotcakes because it was such a limited item. It’s become available in greater numbers now, but that shouldn’t stop you from snapping it up. Gearbox did a great job remastering this original adventure, which is well worth the revisit. Hours worth of play await you here, and you can join your friends in co-op and take on as many vaults as your heart can take on. And, hey, you’ll need the practice for when Borderlands 3 comes your way this September. (Also available for PlayStation 4.)
