"Cyber" Monday Deals

First, let me apologize for this post not being about Steam deals.  However, since I've started a trend within my own blog of writing on sales, I'll just continue with some other deals that may be of interest to PC gamers today. Also, I apologize for using cyber to reference the Internet, but the name "cyber" Monday has stuck, so it is unavoidable.


GameStop, in addition to free value shipping on orders over $20, has deals on everything from consoles to accessories.  If you're looking for games in general, here's their main Cyber Monday page.

GameStop's PC game deals (all physical copies, all online only):

Bioshock 2 Limited Edition GameStop Exclusive, $19.99 ($40 off)
Borderlands Game of the Year Edition, $39.99 ($20 off)
Amazon has a better deal on this game, here: Borderlands Game of the Year Edition, $32.99
Civilization V, $39.99 ($10 off)
Mafia II, $29.99 ($10 off)
The Witcher Enhanced Edition, $14.99 ($5 off)

$10 GameStop gift card included with the purchase of these games:
Bee Movie, $19.99
Monsters vs Aliens, $19.99

Other software from GameStop:
Cakewalk Music Creator 5, $39.99 (nothing off)
Crayola Animation Studio, $9.99 ($10 off)
Crayola Art Studio, $9.99 ($10 off)
Crayola Creative Studio, $29.99 ($20 off)
Crayola Photo FX Studio, $9.99 ($10 off)

GameStop also has promotions on gaming accessories, such as headsets, mice, and keyboards, but I cannot recommend what they sell.  Promotions include a free mouse pad with purchase of a Razer product, and free download of F-22 Lightning 3 or F-16 Multirole Fighter (each a $10 value) with purchase of joysticks on that page.

As of the time of this writing, Steam does not have a better price on these (of course, they don't have the Crayola studio titles).  If you're willing to wait, I would recommend checking Steam's sale later today before ordering these, just in case they decide to be competitive.

Here is something that is relevant to any computer user, but many might overlook in their focus on games today:

60% off of all ebooks and videos at O'Reilly Media, with the code DDF2H.
Print books are buy 2, get the 3rd free with code OPC10 (this deal is ongoing, and not for today only).
Also, if you spend $250 or more, receive Make: the Complete eBook Collection for $1 with the code MAKEPDF.

O'Reilly is an excellent source for books on a variety of topics, but their focus is on computer and programming subjects.  Their ebooks are well done, PDF or ePub format, and DRM free.  If you've never seen their ebooks before, you should take a look at some of their free samples, because this is an excellent deal.

Continued with Amazon and BestBuy in part two.
