A Pair of Fire Emblem Games Are On Sale, Including Engage
Fire Emblem Engage is a fantastic strategy RPG that launched earlier this year, and we’re seeing the best sale on it we’ve seen so far. On Woot, you can get Engage for just $36.99, which is a great price if you missed out on it back in January. Fire Emblem Engage has potentially the best combat we’ve seen in the Fire Emblem series so far, with gorgeous visuals to match. Today, you can also save a lot on the Three Houses spinoff, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes.
Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon Is 50% Off
Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon might be the most underrated game of 2023 so far. The game released back in March to stellar reviews, but I personally don’t know anyone who has tried this game out, other than myself. It takes the world of Bayonetta and reimagines it in a storybook format, with puzzle platforming and combat akin to the 2D Legend of Zelda games. In our review, we called it amazing, saying, “From its impressive, fantastical story moments full of childlike charm to its clever platforming puzzles and satisfying battles, this is a superb action-adventure where every piece comes together to create a wondrous playable storybook.”
Get Pokemon Violet for $44.99
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have two waves of DLC on the way, which are set to add tons of new Pokemon to the current roster. If that sounds good to you, then you can pick up the base Pokemon Violet game today for $44.99. This game takes place in the brand new Paldea Region, which is Pokemon’s first real attempt at an open world adventure. It definitely has its issues, like low framerate and some bugs, but longtime Pokemon fans will likely enjoy seeing the franchise swing for the fences in a bold, new direction.
Dragon Ball and The Legend of Zelda Manga Box Sets On Sale
There are a couple of great manga box sets you can save a bundle on today. The first is Dragon Ball, which has a 36% discount on volume 1-16, which all come bundled together in a nice box. This box set will give you the full story of Goku’s origin before the events of Dragon Ball Z, back when the series was a lot less focused on epic, world-threatening action and more focused on being weird. The other box set you can save a lot on is the Zelda manga box set, which is 43% off today. This compiles the stories of a bunch of different Legend of Zelda games in one handy collection, including Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, A Link to the Past, and more.
PowerBlock Sport 50 Adjustable Dumbbells (Pair) for $199.99
Bowflex isn’t the only option when it comes to adjustable dumbbell sets. PowerBlock is another trusted brand that offers its own version, and right now it’s on sale. Woot has the PowerBlock Sport 50 adjustable dumbbell set for only $199.99 with free shipping. That’s currently less than half the price of an equivalent set of Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells. Free shipping is nice because this weighs in at over 100 pounds!
PowerA Enhanced Switch Controller (Metroid Dread) for $17.52
The officially licensed PowerA controller is an excellent controller for the Nintendo Switch console that isn’t so prohibitively expensive. The Metroid Dread decal looks great as well. This wired controller features a familiar dual analog and d-pad layout, two rear mappable buttons, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The detachable cable makes it easy to stow away when not in use (or to replace the cable if it ever gets damaged).
Temu Has Egregiously Low Prices on Random But Useful Goods
Temu is, in many ways, the Chinese equivalent of Amazon marketplace. They sell pretty much everything you can think of at prices beyond lower than what you could imagine. The quality won’t compare to similar items that cost significantly more, but – for the price – the quality is a lot better than you’d expect. I’ve purchased from Temu in the past and my recommendation is to keep your purchases limited to items that are inexpensive and hard to mess up. Some of the stuff I’ve ordered in the past that I’ve been happy with include apparel, wire management accessories, LED flashlights, a really cool arc lighter, a Nintendo Switch carrying case, microfiber cloths, and other random accessories like that. If you’re worried about whether or not Temu is a legit site, fret not. They are a huge company, big enough to claim a TV ad spot during the Superbowl.
New Release: Nanoleaf 4D Screen Mirror + Lightstrip Kit
Nanoleaf has just released its new 4D Screen Mirror Light Strip Kit. This is an RGB LED lighting kit that can capture the colors on your TV and mirror them as ambient lighting around your TV. The Nanoleaf 4D kit comes with a strip of RGB LEDs and a camera. The LED strip mounts behind your TV. Although it only comes in 65″ and 85″ sizes, the strips are trimmable to fit pretty much any size TV on the market. These aren’t cheap LEDs either. The strips have 10 distinct color zones across 30 RGBIC LEDs per meter. If you’re using the 65″ strip, that’s a total of 120 LEDs with 40 different color zones. The camera is mounted to the top of your TV and faces the screen. It’s function is to capture what colors are being displayed and signals the strips to display the proper colors in the proper areas. The “4D” monikor on this light strip simply means that the kit is capable of identifying unique lighting scenes in different areas of the TV and display the corresponding colors in that particular location.
27″ Acer Nitro 1440p 0.5ms 180Hz IPS Gaming Monitor for $199.99
The Acer Nitro XV271U is an excellent gaming monitor at a very respectable price point. This 27″ 2560×1440 monitor boasts a blazing fast 0.5ms response time, up to 180Hz refresh rate using the DisplayPort (144Hz via HDMI), and an IPS panel that offers wide viewing angles and great color reproduction (95% DCI-P3 color space). It officially supports AMD FreeSync Premium, but it has also proven to be NVIDIA G-SYNC “compatible”. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better 27″ monitor for the price.
Alienware m17 17″ AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX RTX 3070 Ti Laptop for $1199.99
The Alienware m17 R5 laptop features a 17″ 1080p 480Hz G-SYNC IPS display, AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX CPU, GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU, 16GB of DDR5-4800MHz RAM, and 1TB SSD. The AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX CPU boasts a max turbo clock of .4.9GHz with 8 cores, 16 threads, and a 20MB cache. The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti provides plenty of muscle on the GPU front. Among the RTX 30 series mobile cards, it’s only slightly less powerful than the RTX 3080. Compared to desktop variants, it’s roughly comparable to the RTX 3060. It’s capable of running any game out there on the display’s native 1080p resolution and at over 60fps, which is nice because the display is capable of refresh rates of up to 480Hz and, fortunately, is G-SYNC certified.
Alienware Aurora RTX 4090 Gaming PC for $2999.99
This is the best price right now for an RTX 4090 equipped Alienware gaming PC. The RTX 4090 is far and away the most powerful video card you can get right now, leaving competitors like AMD’s latest Radeon RX 7900 XTX in the dust. It’s also ridiculously more powerful than any of the RTX 30 series cards: it’s up to 90% faster than the 3080 Ti. The 4090 is the one and only solution to ray-traced 4K gaming at consistent 60+fps. If you’re still not convinced, check out our RTX 4090 review.
Alienware m16 RTX 4080 Gaming Laptop for $2299.99
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for the newest Alienware m16 gaming laptop equipped with an RTX 4080 GPU. The mobile RTX 4080 is a ridiculously fast mobile GPU; it absolutely crushes any RTX 30 series mobile GPU. In fact, it’s as powerful as an RTX 3080 desktop GPU, which is incredible considering the RTX 3080 desktop GPU is still a very relevant card with the chops to run most games at 4K at 60+fps. It’s paired with the latest and greatest AMD Ryzen 9 7845HX CPU and a whopping 32GB of RAM.
