We don't really have a thread to tell people about SAVINGS AND VALUE save for the General Entertainment News thread. I think it's worth its own thread, so here. If you see a pretty good deal on Steam, a big chain store price cut, or maybe an Amazon deal of the day that you feel is worth it, you should share it and make our wallets happy.

Continuing on, Steam has Torchlight II on sale for 50% off. That makes it $10.

This is due to the new update that adds GUTS, Runic Games' development tool, to the public. It also released Steamworks support which includes a 8 player multiplayer (beta) mod and a potion of respeccing from the developers themselves. So with the mod community, we can expect a lot of easily-obtained content pouring in.
For the regular player, they've added new weapons and armor, monsters, a new tileset, some more endgame maps, and new pets, including a headcrab and...

An Alpaca.

That's worth it right there.

So hey, if you ever felt like buying a pretty good action RPG, you can't really beat $10. Ends April 8th.

Oh, yeah, Steam Summer Sale is on. Probably should mention that's a thing that's occurring.

Keep your eye out, since you can get a lot of bang for your buck.

Image It snuck up on me this year... By the time I get any PayPal money, it'll be too late.

Guess I'm grabbing a pre-paid card later.

Another new thing going on similar to a sale: Natsume, the developer of Harvest Moon, announced they have a lot of reprints up for some of their properties on their online store.

This includes Rune Factory, which has all three of the DS games up for $20. Those were rare and expensive, so seeing them at that price is pretty nice, since they're apparently pretty good.

I think it's starting tomorrow.

Also, Metal Gear Rising Revengeance is realizing its Steam release preorder with really nice discount, I reckon.

Think they said the preorder will bring it down to $20 or so. It'll happen on Amazon, too, so wait until the next day to get the discount if you want to preorder it.

Image Wii U owners, thought about Monster Hunter but was a bit put off by the price, especially since the identical 3DS version costs $40?

Well good news, the price has been permanently lowered to $40 now, so feel free to try!

I highly recommend watching ProJared's beginner's guide if you are at all considering this rather awesome game. And if you do pick up the Wii U version, feel free to ring me up to hunt. I'm currently sitting at HR 4 for the record so I'm not that far in the multiplayer yet.

Okay then... How about from now until Feb. 3rd, you can get it for...$20? Wii U or 3DS.

Man, this deal would be a lot more significant if I didn't already own it for 3DS.

Clearly this is a sign it's time for me to get the WiiU version so I can start playing online. Not that I ever mind playing Solo but, butts.

Also Mecha told me to.
