On his blog, Xbox Live’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb unveiled some awesome sales on a bevy of arcade titles and DLC that will go live over the next two weeks, including discounts on the Alan Wake franchise — up to 83% off from May 21 to May 27 — as well as Dark Souls and its Artorias of the Abyss DLC. New titles will be coming to Games on Demand, too, including Crysis 3 tomorrow and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and DmC Devil May Cry on May 28. Check out the full list of upcoming deals on Hryb’s blog.
PSN is having an insane sale right now that includes deals on Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny, Thomas Was Alone and essentially the entire Resident Evil franchise. The deals end on April 30th, so if you fancy the idea of getting Resident Evil on the cheap, this is the time.
Seriously, if the Merchant were here, he’d look at these deals and promptly have a stroke. Check them out after the jump.
If you haven’t played the fantastic cooperative horror game Killing Floor, I highly recommend you get on that. It’s like Left 4 Dead, only terrifying, because instead of 28 Days Later infected coming at you, there are terrifying hell-creatures. You can also play it with five friends, instead of three, and trust me, you’re going to want as much firepower as you can get on your side as possible.
If money’s an issue for you, it isn’t anymore! Rather, it isn’t an excuse you can use for not owning this game. Thanks to the Humble Bundle, you can grab Killing Floor, its soundtrack, and all eleven DLC for a dollar — or more, as you decide the price. Full list of DLC can be found after the jump.
Xbox Live’s annual spring sale is about to kick off, and this year it will bring deals on Dead Rising 2, Skyrim, Hitman, Resident Evil 6, and Telltale’s The Walking Dead, among others. The sale goes live on Tuesday, March 26 and will run until April 1 for Xbox Live Gold and Free members.
All of Resident Evil 6′s multiplayer modes are half off, and if you haven’t gotten around to playing Telltale Games’ fantastic episodic The Walking Dead game, episode one will be free and the rest will cost a paltry 200 MSP each. I picked a few of the deals I think will interest you all, check them out after the jump.
GOG has a Pick 5 promo going on right now that lets you choose five PC and Mac games from a list of twenty — including Alan Wake, its pseudo-sequel American Nightmare, and indie horror game Lucius, among others — and you get your games for a crazy low price. We’re talking Alan Wake for $5, people. The promo lasts until March 19 at 5:59am EST. Head past the break for the full list of games and how to get them.
Electronic Arts has a massive Dead Space sale going on right now with discounts on all three games and their DLC. On Origin you can grab Dead Space for $10 (down from $19.99), Dead Space 2 for $10 (usually $19.99), and Dead Space 3 for $41.99 (regularly $59.99). The first game is only available as a Windows PC download, but the other two are available on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. All of the DLC is down to $3.49 (usually $4.99) each. If you’re still on the fence about Dead Space 3, I suggest reading what Brittany had to say about it.
Bloody Disgusting’s S-VHS, the latest V/H/S project, had its world premiere Saturday night at Park City’s Library Center Theatre during the Sundance 2013 Film Festival. It was followed by a wave of great reviews – a much more unanimously positive reception than last year’s outing. And then, like last year, a deal was made within days to bring the film to the big screen. It’s being reported via Variety that Magnolia Pictures, who scored V/H/S out of the 2012 fest, has acquired the second tape for limited theatrical run, alongside ultra VOD via Magnet Releasing. The announcement was held here until it was official.
“Our goal is to make each sequel better than the last, unlike any horror franchise ever,” Brad told me via text adding “We know that’s a bold and nearly impossible task, but we’re trying our best to deliver quality horror that we can be proud of.”
This latest tape features the works of Gareth Evans (The Raid) & Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre), Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Lovely Molly) & Gregg Hale, Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun), Adam Wingard (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die) and Simon Barrett (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die), the latter of which will be making his directorial debut on the film.
The first movie followed a group of students hired to break into a desolate house to find a lost VHS tape, paving the way for the movie to go into a series of found-footage stories directed by up-and-coming genre filmmakers. The new movie, starring Adam Wingard, Kelsy Abbott, Lawrence Michael, Levine Hannah Hughes and L.C. Holt, follows a similar structure, with a pair of investigators discovering a tape while looking for a student. READ MORE
This is a two-parter, so you have not one, but two things to be happy about. The first is the news that EA’s currently on the hunt for three senior positions related to the Dead Space franchise. On the Gamasutra job board they’re asking for an Audio Director, Senior VFX Artist, and a Senior Development Director. Obviously, Dead Space 3 is a given, it’s only a matter of time, but this might be something else, perhaps an Extraction-like spin-off?
For those of you who like to play your games on a computer and haven’t yet experienced the terrifying orgasm of blood and flailing limbs that is the Dead Space series, Steam has some fantastic deals for both Dead Space and its sequel as a part of their summer camp sale (it ends tomorrow!). You can get Dead Space for $9.99, Dead Space 2 for $14.99, or get them both for $19.99. But really, if you haven’t played these games yet than you’re obviously certifiable, I mean, come on, they’re just so good. READ MORE

Until May 2nd XBLA is offering Dead Rising content for a fraction of their original prices. Case Zero, a short prequel to Dead Rising 2 that includes a taste of what you can expect in the full game has dropped to 200 Microsoft Undead Poultry Points, Case West for 400 and the Psycho and Soldier costumes are now at 80 points. They’re practically giving them away people! If you have yet to check out the Dead Rising 2 expansions they’re both pretty good, just remember that while Case Zero is exclusively single-player, Case West brings in Frank West for a more social experience. The deal ends on May 2nd.
But that’s not all, oh H-E-double hockey stick no it’s not. When the Dead Rising deal ends a Castlevania-centric one will take its place. Think of it like the circle of life – when you die someone younger and more talented will replace you. I’m not saying Castlevania is better than Dead Rising and it’s definitely not younger, but you get the idea. Head past the break for next week’s deals, just make sure you’re ready to save some goddamned money! READ MORE
