Z shut up and take my money funny meme

It’s that time of year again. Halloween is almost upon us and nothing can be scarier than an empty bank account, right? Well, prepare yourself for the horror because these deals are pretty difficult to pass up.

First up, retail because they have it the hardest or something. Besides, these deals are rather impressive. Thanks to a press release from Ster, we were informed about a rad deal going on that makes buying a PS4 even more appealing. When you buy any PS4 bundle or standalone console, you’ll get a copy of God of War III remastered and a PS TV for free. That’s right, you can buy the console at the new cheaper price of only R5 499 between 27 October and 5 November from: Makro, Dion Wired, Game, Incredible Connection, Musica, Animeworx, BT Games, C.N.A, TakeAlot, Toy Zone, Game4U, Music Moods, House and Home, Look & Listen and Raru. Plus, that’s just the recommended retail cost – you might manage to shop around and find it for even cheaper.

Still looking at retail, Toys R Us has a rad special if you still need to pre-order some of the biggest titles coming soon. But you can only order on Wednesday (tomorrow) between 12pm and 2pm, so prepare to crash the site with these deals:

  • Fallout 4 (PS4 or Xbox One) = R499
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III (PS4 or Xbox One) = R499
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III (PS3 or Xbox 360) = R399
  • Star Wars: Battlefront (PS4 or Xbox One) = R499
  • Star Wars: Battlefront (PC) = R299
  • Need for Speed (PS4 or Xbox One) = R 499
Read  Super Mario Odyssey races past 2 million copies sold

And then there is digital, and the PSN is having a huge sale on all things horror. Some of the prices are even better if you’re a PlayStation Plus member, but either way they’re pretty good.

  • Until Dawn = R559.30
  • Resident Evil = R194.35
  • Bloodborne = R535.33
  • Zombi = R209.30
  • Outlast = R83.70

Just what we need to get us through until the holiday sales, right? Which horrifying deal will you be throwing your money at, or are you saving yourself for the Steam and GoG.com sales that are inevitably coming?

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

  • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

    I WILL HOLD THE LINE, I WILL NOT CAVE!

    I’ve not bought ANY games in 2015, and I’m going for that achievement

    • Hammersteyn

      Oh right, you got Witcher 3 for free

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        Yes, and not the ARRRRR version, the legit version

        • Hammersteyn

          I would never imply that.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            I would ;P

    • Frik van der Hewerskink

      With the steam winter sale coming at the end of the year, good luck dude, I know I won’t stand a chance against that sale!

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        I know, however, I have a few VERY expensive purchases to make in December, so my choice to HOLD THE LINE is both out of the achievement as well as necessity.

    • WitWolfy

      Thats like me saying I’m not going to masturbate for a year.

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        O_O

        Well that esca…..no, wait, yes, escalated right on time. This is Lazygamer comments section after all

      • Mistake Not…

        I doubt anyone could last for a whole year. Maybe MULTIPLE times in one year, but 365 days is some super stamina.

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      Boo

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        Well, to be fair, I spent ALL THE MONEY in 2014 buying ALL THE GAMES, hence, mase-backlog

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          I’ve really been working well on my backlog recently.
          Of course I went and bought Grey Goo, but that was completely worth it.

        • WitWolfy

          Planning on getting the Rise of the Tomb Raider.. Then I’m finished for the year… I SWEAR!!!!

  • That site is gonna be crashed for longer than that time frame is open, I guarantee it.

  • Jeez, R299 for Battlefront is crazy for a brand new title.

    #CancelThoseEAPreorders ^^

    • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

    • WitWolfy

      • Hammersteyn

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          • WitWolfy

            *Gets bonus to buy people gifts that never bother coming to your braais to watch rugby.

      • AfricanTime

        • WitWolfy

  • Hammersteyn

    TOO LATE! Bought Until Dawn and Res. Revelations on Monday

    • WitWolfy

      • Hammersteyn

  • Mistake Not…

      • Hammersteyn

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        CANCEL CANCEL CANCEL

  • Hammersteyn

    Can we order in store? Apparently I need to leave the house more. There’s a Toys R Us that opened close by O_o

    • Mistake Not…

      Don’t think so. Looks like there’s only 20 of each available online.

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        Have you seen Hammersteyn? He can just shoulder charge the common folk out of the way

        • Hammersteyn

          MUHAHAHAHA apparently @disqus_AnX6usuqXl:disqus is of similar size. Me and him can Double Dragon Rage next year if he joins.

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Hahaha, now THAT I’d pay to see!

      • Ir0nseraph

        Only 20, the odds are against me πŸ™‚

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          *are

          • Ir0nseraph

            Please consider buying a game, or is this just too much fun πŸ˜›

            Thanks

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            DENIED

            xD

          • Hammersteyn
          • WitWolfy

            Back in the day.. As in last gen I admitted having a flashed console once, MISTAKE! Now I know how Jesus felt that day getting stoned while caring the cross… Was a baaaaaaad day…

            But now I see its ok now? Bad luck Brian strikes again!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Ain’t buyin nuffin.

    • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

      Arrr?

      • Hammersteyn

        He prefers to Wait…………frame

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          Hehe, I’ve fallen in that trap too it seems.

          ALMOST bought ingame currency yesterday (had a 50% discount), MY FINGER WAS ON THE BUTTON.

          Went and checked the Rand/dorrar exchange AND CLICKED CANCEL faster than the speed of light

          • Hammersteyn

            The whole game is designed around that :/ Fun game though

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            I’ve not spent a single randela, and quite enjoying it

          • In the start I did this as well. Untill the first 75% off. Got myself a color palette bundle and awesome syndana and shoulder armor and the rest was saved for slots πŸ˜›

          • Hammersteyn

            YOU’RE WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE INDUSTRY

          • Hahaha $5 on a game I have almost 400 hours of play time on…PA LEASE, I am whats right with the industry xD

          • Hammersteyn

            Oh right, free game. My hate for MT overshadows logic sometimes

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Yeah, dat slots, I had 50 plat for some reason, and maxxed my excalibur like a nana

          • You start with 50 plat. Some people play smart and buy 2 warframe slots… other people like me go “OOOOH SHINY PRETTY SCARF”

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            LOL, yeah, now I have 10 left :/

          • We have to play together damn it xD. Last night as Trev and I call it a night you pop up in game xD

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Yeah, thanks for that you ass.

            I need to get to Jupiter to farm some things there apparently. Effin Archwing needs to be built damn you

          • You are gonna do like 1 or 2 archwing missions and never go back xD

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            I just wanna get that damn mission off my back

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Until you want Atlas and Limbo πŸ˜‰

          • -_- don’t remind me… I have zero problem with archwing its just impossible to get missions with squads in them.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            lol – it was literally “I’m going now. Yeah me too” and there you were.

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Laugh it up fuzzball

            πŸ˜›

          • Next time we are dragging you to the void xD

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            You’d better, I need to level up the dualskana

          • I am doing leveling for my syndicate weapon tonight πŸ™‚

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            T4Ext sounds good. Vamps enjoyed that.

          • I will gladly go with a credit booster xD

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I’ve spent so much on slots. I just like seeing all my shiny virtual toys.

          • I am a hoarder unfortunately, 500 plat = 25 slots for all frames. Not so bad I guess

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            500 plat!!!! moer!

          • That was an investment because I love the game and will be playing it for years to come πŸ™‚ Was about $20 with the 75% discount = 570 plat.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I bought the Hunter pack on special during the previous years xmas sale, that gave me a nice few plats, then most of the time when I get a 75% bonus I chip in. I’m just glad I had $5 sitting in my steam wallet for months now.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Wait for 75%. Buy 5 dorrars, you’re good to go for ages so long as you don’t blow it all on cosmetics.

          • Yup 5 dorrars gets me about 100 hours of play time πŸ˜›

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Cheap date

          • I am a faceless Ninja…

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Bah, cosmetics, a SpaceNinja craves not these thin……oh wait, what is that purrrdy thing?

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Last night the long wait ended, I got my Nyx P chassis. YAYYYYYYYYYYY

          • Hammersteyn

            I remembered getting my Frost chassis. Was over the moon when it was done. But this was like last year sometime

          • Nyx MF P and Trin MF P !!!!!!!!!!!!

  • DragonSpirit009

    I’m suddenly glad that I don’t own a credit card!

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      Debit Cards work on Steam. So does PayPal.
      No one is safe from a Steam sale.

      • DragonSpirit009

        My card doesn’t have that security code thingy. So I can’t buy anything on the internet.

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          Ah, good for you.
          It’s dangerous that, and buying in dollars aren’t so cheap anymore.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I bought the latest Humble comic book bundle. $15 isn’t so bad I thought. Then the sms came through and reminded me that $15 is R208. :/

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Ouch, right in the bollocks

          • DragonSpirit009

            Damn dude! Talk about crushing your wallet!

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Eish. $19.99 for my newest game wasn’t quite as cheap as I thought it would be either.

          • DragonSpirit009

            Yeah I have to thank may parents for that when they created the account for me. Guess they knew I might got crazy at some point!

  • AfricanTime

    peoples, dont be selfish only buy one ne, and move on
    , dont crash the site…

    • Hammersteyn

      Human decency. It’s rarer than exotic drops in Destiny at times.

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        Quote of the week

      • WitWolfy

        Human decency. It’s rarer than an actual story in Destiny.

      • Hammersteyn

        Pod racer?

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          Not quite, ’twas the night of ’14, two brave soldiers, one chopper, many dreadful crashes, the horror……nevarrrforget

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          I would love a new PodRacer game.

          • Brady miaau

            play the old one, still fun!

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            I need to find a patch for it somewhere. Won’t work since Win 8.1. And I still have my original copy

  • Captain JJ the Goo

    Steam always has great Halloween sales.

    • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

      SSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

      • Captain JJ the Goo

        STEAM ALWAYS HAS GREAT HALLOWEEN SALES!
        XD

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          Since you got the handbag you are impossible

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            To quote you
            “SSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            I’m not seeing any denial there…

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            I just wanted to quote you. Really. Admiral quotes hold more weight.
            “It’s a trap!”

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Don’t drop his quotes.

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Like, on my face? O_o

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Self trolling to hide the HANDBAG?

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            What’s that over there?! —>

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Hehe

          • Brady miaau

            Will check

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

            Oh you, also, YOUR REDIRECTION HAS NO POWER HERE

  • aj_nator

    good luck everyone, hope we all get the games we want πŸ™‚

  • PC Battlefront is a steal or maybe that is really what the game is worth

  • Jonah Cash

    I’m looking at Deponia over on Steam… It is calling me. Looks like the type of game that I would love!

  • GalacticLordCaptainAwesomeness

    Site is indeed down….

    • Audacity (or-das-it-eeee-eee)

      Zoe can tell the future “so prepare to crash the site”, they underestimated the SA gaming community
