Cheap Game Deals – July 2014
Fall 2014 is fast-approaching, so we don’t have much longer to complete our summer backlog of recently released games and missed opportunities from last year. This week in the Cheap Game Deals, we’ve got a few modern classics that beg to be played, especially if you’ve got a next-gen console like the PlayStation 4.
Our pick for the highlight? Infamous: Second Son. The price has dropped a whole $20, giving you enough money left over to pick up the upcoming downloadable content episode called “First Light,” which stars the Conduit named Fetch. See the rest of the picks below and get gaming on a budget!

Titanfall (PC/Xbox 360/Xbox One)
Pilot a bi-pedal instrument of death in this innovative shooter from Respawn Entertainment. The game has been changed thanks to the ability to run on walls and maneuver like a madman around the many maps. With DLC on the way, it would behoove you to standby for Titanfall and grab this game now.
Killer is Dead (PS3/Xbox 360)

Explore the city as Batman gets to glide, grapple and fight his way through a hellish night involving some of the more unsavory members of his Rogues Gallery. The action is more brutal, the world is a lot bigger and the night is darker as the Caped Crusader beats every baddie down on the Wii U.
Call of Duty: Ghosts (PS4)
We’re not going to beat you over the head with this. It’s Call of Duty, but on the PS4. If you don’t know what you’re in for, then you’re probably not too huge of a fan of the franchise anyway. But suffice to say that the multiplayer suite will get you hooked for days.
