Nintendo eShop $50 Gift Card for $45

Sega Games On Sale
SEGA has put some of its best recent games on sale. This includes Persona 5 Royal, which is an essential RPG if you're a fan of the genre. Plus, Sonic Frontiers is discounted, and absolutely worth playing and running around in for 40 bucks. Finally, you can check out Like a Dragon: Ishin, a Yakuza spinoff that doesn't require eight games of backstory for you to enjoy.
Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon Is 28% Off
Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon is a surprisingly amazing spinoff from the mainline Bayonetta action series. Bayonetta Origins is a much different take on the iconic witch, trading in Platinum's trademark frenetic action for a slower-paced, more puzzle-oriented action adventure. And the results are stunning, with a gorgeous painterly art style and moment-to-moment gameplay that might scratch the itch of those who miss classic, top-down, 2D Zelda games. It's one of the year's biggest sleeper hits, and one that shouldn't be missed for the 28% discount over at Amazon.
Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia Is 53% Off
If you're a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, you should definitely check out this deal on the Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia, a hardcover book celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Blue Blur. This Deluxe Edition is discounted over 50% when you apply the coupon before checkout. In this Deluxe Edition, you'll get an exclusive mosaic cover, a gold foil slipcase, and prints of Sonic and Dr. Eggman, along with all of the great contents of the book itself.

More Deals From This Week
Razer Nari Ultimate Wireless Gaming Headset for $79.99
Today Amazon is offering the Razer Nari Ultimate wireless gaming headset for the PS5 or PC (not for the Xbox) for only $79.99. That's a massive 60% price drop from its original $200 MSRP. The Razer Nari Ultimate is one of Razer's higher end gaming headsets. It features big 50mm drivers and THX Spatial Audio 7.1ch surround sound. The Nari's claim to fame, however, is the implementation of haptic feedback for even more immersion in your games. As our review puts it, "it kind of simulates having a subwoofer strapped to your skull." The haptics might seem like a gimmick at first glance, but it works surprisingly well, especially for high-octane games like action, horror, fighting, and shooters.
Fire Emblem Engage for Switch for $39.99
Woot is offering the new Fire Emblem Engage game for only $39.99. Amazon Prime members get free shipping as well. Engage is the latest Fire Emblem strategy game for the Nintendo Switch following the immensely popular Three Houses. We awarded the game a 9/10 in our IGN review. The gameplay is every bit as enjoyable and challenging as Three Houses and there are plenty of QoL improvements that make some of the rote sections common to SRPGs much more palatable. The story is definitely simpler and more predictable than Three Houses, but it still provides a suitable backdrop for the fun battles, and this time around your protagonist is fully voiced. It's worth checking out at $39.99.
55" TCL R646 4K Mini LED QLED TV for $549.99
Unlike the other two 2022-released TVs on the list, the R646 was TCL's flagship TV of 2021. That shouldn't turn you away, however, because this TV performs every bit as well but at a lower price. It boasts a Mini-LED panel with quantum dot (QLED) technology, wide color gamut, and full-array LED backlight with 240 zones of local dimming. The 120Hz native refresh rate and two HDMI 2.1 ports means that this TV is capable of 4K@120Hz gaming with the PS5 or Xbox Series X consoles. It also has variable refresh rate and auto low latency mode. For the smart interface, the R646 stays with the tried and true Google TV.
55" TCL R655 4K Mini LED QLED TV for $649.99
The TCL R655 is the 2022 refresh of the R646. The improvements are minimal but so is the price discrepancy. There are two main changes with the newer R655. Whereas the R646 can do 4K @ 120Hz, the R655 can actually go all the way up to 4K @ 144Hz. Also, whereas the R646 uses the Google TV smart interface, the R655 uses a Roku smart interface. I personally think Roku is more user friendly.
55" Hisense U8H 4K Mini LED TV for $648
The U8H was Hisense's flagship TV of 2022 and pricing is pretty much identical to the TCL R655. Although the featureset between the two is nearly identical, the Hisense offers a few subtle advantages. The Hisense U8H has more local dimming zones so it's able to deliver a better image when bright and dark elements are present in the same image. The Hisense TV is also a bit better for games because it has a faster response time. Unlike the R655, the Hisense U8H uses the Google smart TV interface. Even if you find the older 2021 U8G on sale, you shouldn't consider it because that TV does NOT have a Mini-LED panel.
