Coffee Shop! Kirby deals, 50% off used games, and Wii U deals!


Coffee Beans
If you didn't see it, I posted up the official Nintendo Channel data for Kirby's Adventure, here! While putting that report together, I was looking at Kirby games on Amazon.com, and found a few that were discounted pretty significantly.

I also received an email reminder this morning about a 50% off used video games sale that is still happening, and will be through this Sunday.

If you're interested in a few Kirby game deals, a 50% off used games sale, and some Wii U game deals, hit the jump to see what the deals are!


The Brew
First up, the Kirby video game deals!

Kirby Mass Attack is on sale for $12.72 directly from Amazon.com, or $11.98 from a vendor fulfilled by Amazon. Both are eligible for Amazon.com's free shipping for orders over $25, as well as free shipping if you're an Amazon.com Prime member. The game currently has a customer review score average of 92.50%, based on 88 reviews from Amazon.com.
Kirby's Epic Yarn, the Wii's first retail Kirby game, is currently on sale directly from Amazon.com for only $10.00! It is eligible for free shipping on orders over $25, and also if you're an Amazon.com Prime member. Make sure to check the sidebar on its Amazon.com page, under the "More Buying Choices" to see the option to buy it directly from Amazon. This game's current customer review score average is 90.45%, based on 264 reviews from Amazon.com. If you're wondering how many hours you can expect from Kirby's Epic Yarn, according to the Nintendo Channel data report from 2011, you should expect around 20 hours of game-play. Mrs. Coffee and I played through this one together, and we enjoyed it. With how much Bean 1 is enjoying Kirby's Adventure, we may end up adding it to our collection!

Yes? No? Maybe so?
What about the save 50% off used video games deal? It's HERE. GameStop is running the promotion online (assuming the games are available), and in GameStop stores around the country. Now, you may be thinking, "I bet the games are all junk!" Well, I went and fished through some of the games they have, and the following games could all be purchased for less than $5 (each, of course!).

Boom Blox, Cursed Mountain, Dragon Age Origins, Geometry Wars: Galaxies, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2, Kinect Adventures, Lair, Prince of Persia: Rival Swords, Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, Red Steel 2, Resistance 2, Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure.

If you have been interested in Red Steel 2, but don't own it, I think if you can get the game for only $5, it would be a good investment. It would allow you to finally try out the Wii MotionPlus controls you probably have heard so much about, and should give you around 10 hours of game-play.

If you're a Wii U owner, here are a few Wii U game deals you might be interested in...

Assassins Creed III can be grabbed from Amazon.com right now for just $29.99, which is a 50% savings off its MSRP. I just recently finished the single-player campaign in it, and overall I enjoyed my time with the game. If you're enjoy completing games 100% before moving to the next, Assassin's Creed III offers you a lot of game-play, and is easily worth its asking price of $29.99. (It's also on sale for $29.99 for the PS3 and Xbox 360 right now as well!)

Have you played the world's #1 dance game brand series? If not, now is a good time to grab the latest in the Just Dance series. Just Dance 4 on the Wii U is currently on sale for just $29.99 from Amazon.com, which is a 40% discount from its Wii U MSRP of $49.99.

We don't own a 3DS in our house, but I have heard a lot of good about Resident Evil: Revelations for it from user reviews. If you don't know, Capcom is porting Revelations to the Wii U, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The game currently has a MSRP of $49.99, but you can pre-order the Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations for just $39.99 on Amazon.com. A 20% savings on a Wii U game not yet released, isn't too shabby!

If you have been interested in one the Skylanders games, Amazon.com currently has the Skylanders Giant Starter Kit on sale for just $59.96, which is a 20% discount from its MSRP of $74.99.
I haven't played the Skylanders games, but I have done two data reports on the first game in the series. The reported game-play hours "Per person" were really good, and I do like the idea behind the game(s) a lot.


While you may enjoy shopping for online game deals at various sites, or even going out to physical retail stores to shop for game deals, let's not forget about the Wii U eShop deals!

Right now, there are two Wii U eShop games that are discounted, and one I can recommend. from my own time with the game.

The first one is Trine 2: Director's Cut. Trine 2 is currently on sale for just $9.99, which is a 50% discount from its normal price of $19.99. I own the game on the Wii U, and if you are looking for puzzle-platforming type game, I suggest you download it before the sale ends next week! There is a demo for Trine 2 on the eShop, so you can even give it a try before you buy it. I have played the game more than 40 hours since November, and have really enjoyed my time with the game.

The other Wii U eShop game on sale is Puddle. It's currently on sale for $7.49, which is about a 6% discount from its normal price. While Trine 2 has a playable demo available for you to try, unfortunately Puddle doesn't have a playable demo up yet.

If you aren't familiar with either Puddle or Trine 2, I have included their Wii U eShop trailers below:

  1. Excellent post Coffee! Thanks for letting us know about all the great deals. That is a steal for Red Steel 2 and Zack and Wiki. I enjoyed Red Steel 2 so much - the art style, the gameplay, the music - fun.fun.FUN! Zack and Wiki is a great point and click puzzle game with a very cool art style. The puzzles/levels are very interactive and challenging. Plus, it's a complete steal at $3.49!

    As for Puddle, both myself and Greg from our site reviewed it. If you are interested, here are links to both reviews.

  2. Some of those prices for the games are really crazy! Under $5 for many I had heard of...

    Which is one reason I try to avoid stores with video games on a regular basis, especially stores with USED video games. I already have a collection of games not completed/started, but I can somehow justify buying more...

    On your Puddle review(s), I don't know how I missed both of those...but I just checked, and they were posted after I had spent too many hours working on editing a video!



    Thanks for the comment/feedback!

  3. Looks like some really good deals in there. Most of the ones I want to have played, or at least purchased, I already have. *eyes his backlog* I have some gaming to do this weekend...

  4. Backlog....


    That is a good price for Red Steel 2; I may hit the local GS and pick it up. Also have a newegg promo for DKCR3D ($8 off) which I'm considering.

  5. The 50% off used deal is great for those that may just be getting a new console, especially for the older titles that are harder to find now.



    We're expecting at least 5 NEW reviews on your site next week, don't disappoint, but have fun this weekend!

  6. Make sure to check online to make sure your store has Red Steel 2. That's what I like about the used sale, you can check the local Game Stops to see which ones have the games before venturing out...if you venture out.


    DKCR3D?! Just buy the Wii version for around $20 now, then get DKCR3D...that way, you're double incomplete on one game. That would be really leading by example!


    If you grab Red Steel 2, let us know if you find any other gaming gems if you venture out! I'm trying to avoid leaving the house tonight and tomorrow, because of that sale....

  7. Yeah, I checked the inventory and they do have it. Though I should probably put any new games on ice for now, even for only $5. One game turns into 2, 3, 7 and I'm at $60. :)


    I hear dkcr3d has an easier mode so that may help me some. Not sure I'm up for the hardcore platforming parts of it right now.

  8. ROFL - I just read this comment this morning and had to grin. I had a completely unproductive weekend from a 'beating game' standpoint. Was out of town most of Friday, played Madden with one of my buddies most of Saturday and spent almost all of yesterday working on my PC (though I did play my Vita quite a bit). Today's post? Not even a review. :P

  9. " Not sure I'm up for the hardcore platforming parts of it right now."


    It wasn't necessarily the platforming, but the barrels...oh, the barrels. And a few of the later levels in the game with a particular hazard.
