Coffee Shop! 3DS game deals – save 20%, or more!

September 10, 2013

Coffee Beans
The Nintendo 2DS is releasing next month at a suggested retail price of $129.99, $40 less than the suggested retail price of the regular Nintendo 3DS. It is probably what we will end up getting Bean 1 this holiday season for Christmas, unless there is some other shiny new toy that turns up between now and then.

There are already a few games on my list to get Bean 1 eventually, if not day one, and between now and Christmas I’ll be paying closer attention to 2DS/3DS deals. If you currently own a Nintendo 3DS, or perhaps are planning to grab a Nintendo 2DS this holiday season, below are some current Nintendo 3DS games that are at least 20% off their MSRPs or List Prices.

Brew yourself some coffee and see if there are any games that jump out at you, or perhaps that you would recommend to others!

What Bean 1 might be playing 3DS games on.

The Brew
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes for $16.87*, HERE. You save over 40%.
Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon for $30.85, with FREE Shipping, HERE. You save 23%.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for $29.99, with FREE Shipping, HERE. You save 25%.
New Super Mario Bros. 2 for $29.81, with FREE Shipping, HERE. You save 25%.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star for $29.34*, with FREE Shipping, HERE. You save 26%.
Super Mario 3D Land for $29.65, with FREE Shipping, HERE. You save 26%.
Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition for $14.42*, HERE. You save over 50%.

*Look under the “More Buying Choices” to the right of the “In Stock” section and under the “Add to Cart” and “Sell Us Your Item” boxes on the right, to purchase it directly from Amazon.com at the listed price.

Caffeinated Thoughts
Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is at the top of the list I have for Bean 1, with New Super Mario Bros. 2 close behind it. Bean 1 demoed Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon for about 5 minutes at GameStop many months ago, and he still randomly requests to play the game.

I’m hoping that Nintendo of America and Amazon.com will get their systems situation worked out, and Amazon.com will start carrying Nintendo systems before this holiday season. Amazon does discount other game systems from time-to-time, and I think every penny helps. The $20 or $50 saved in the examples linked above would be enough to pick up an extra game or accessory.

Questions
Have any of you played and really enjoyed Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and think that a younger child would be able to play and beat it?

If you own a 3DS and have played any of the games listed, are there any you would/wouldn’t recommend to new 3DS, or soon to be 2DS, owners?

Coffee Shop! Online Wii U deals – save 20%, or more!

August 30, 2013

Coffee Beans
I told a friend back in June who was interested in the Wii U then, that I thought a price drop would happen for the system pretty soon and I would wait a little while to see what Nintendo would do. So, earlier this week when Nintendo announced the Wii U Deluxe Set is getting a new MSRP of $299.99 starting on September 20th, I was glad to see it happen and immediately told my friend about it.

The Wii was hard to find in many locations for nearly 2 years after it released, and because it was selling like hot coffee on a cold winter’s day, the prices of many first party Wii games rarely dropped below their MSRPs. Even now, some Wii games have their original MSRPs of $49.99.

The Wii U has been struggling with its monthly sales compared to the other consoles, since January of this year. The biggest beneficiaries of this unfortunate situation for Nintendo though, are the consumers. The Wii U hasn’t even been out a year yet, and already many Nintendo published Wii U titles are seeing some significant discounts off their MSRPs.

If you currently own a Wii U, or plan on getting one soon (like The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Wii U Deluxe Bundle), hit the jump to see some current Wii U deals on games and gear that are at least 20% off their MRSPs/List Prices!

The Brew
First up, if you own a Wii U and have been interested in grabbing New Super Mario Bros. U, you can currently get it for $44.31 with free shipping, HERE, which is a savings of 26% from its MSRP.

If you are even a little bit interested in Call of Duty: Black Ops II for the Wii U, I highly recommend it. The online community is still active, and I don’t have issues finding regular Team Deathmatch battles to hop in. Amazon.com currently has Black Ops II for the Wii U on sale for just $37.96, HERE, with free shipping. Just make sure to check the “More Buying Choices” section on the right side of the page and look for Amazon there, otherwise you will currently be buying the game from a third party vendor on the main page, and the order will be “Fulfilled by Amazon” instead. It is cheaper by nearly $10 that way right now though, if you don’t mind purchasing from a third party vendor.

For Disney fans that might have recently purchased a Wii U, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is on sale from Amazon.com for $25.24 with free shipping.

Fighting fans have two deals to pick from on the Wii U right now:
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U is currently on sale for only $19.77, a 50% discount, HERE! Like Black Ops II, check the “More Buying Choices” to make sure you are getting it directly from Amazon, unless you don’t mind buying it from a third party vendor.
The second fighting game Wii U owners can buy at a discount of more than 20% right now is Injustice: Gods Among Us. The game is currently discounted almost 30% on Amazon.com, HERE, and is selling for $43.23 with free shipping.

Do you enjoy hunting? Have you ever wanted go monster hunting? If so, you might want to check out Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the Wii U. I actually own the game, just haven’t opened it yet. It will probably be played for one of the CoffeeWithGames Game Nights in the future, and I’m looking forward to hunting some more monsters. You can currently save just over 20% off Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate’s MSRP of $59.99, HERE.

If you’re not super, super, super cheap like I am, you probably will want to protect your Wii U’s GamePad sooner, rather than later. You can currently get the Blue Wii U GamePad Nerf Armor protective case on sale for just $12.97, which is 35% off its MSRP of $19.99, HERE.

There are currently two Wii U eShop games on sale, both more than 20% off their eShop list prices.

I have played and beaten Trine 2: Director’s Cut on the Wii U, and really enjoyed my time with the game. The game is currently on sale for just $7.99! You read that right, you can purchase Trine 2: Director’s Cut for just $7.99! Trine 2 was an eShop launch title available when the Wii U launched last November, and has an eShop list price of $19.99.

If you are trying to do the math on that one, it’s a savings of about 60% off its eShop list price. Here’s a trailer for Trine 2 on the Wii U, if you’re wondering what the game is like:

Nano Assault Neo is the other Wii U eShop game on sale right now, and you can currently buy it for just $6.99. It has an eShop list price of $9.99 regularly, so it is currently discounted about 30%. I haven’t played Nano Assault Neo, but like Trine 2, it LOOKS very well done on the graphical side.

If you aren’t aware of what Nano Assault Neo looks like, here is the trailer for it from the Wii U eShop:

Questions
While I can easily recommend Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Trine 2: Director’s Cut at their prices, are there any Wii U games you would recommend at their current prices (or, maybe not)?

I have some funds in my Wii U eShop account and am interested in Nano Assault Neo, but I’m not sure I would enjoy the genre, as I haven’t really played the games in it before. If you own Nano Assault Neo on the Wii U, is it a game you recommend to other Wii U owners?
