Best New Amazon Releases for January 15

New releases, game deals and pre-order bonuses, oh my! Oh, and also some free money. Can’t forget about that.

We’ve got our first big game of 2013 releasing this week as well as a few new Blu-rays. It’s not the strongest assembly aside from a couple goodies, but there are some good deals on huge games. We recommend snagging those prices while they last. Of course, you don’t HAVE to buy anything we link to below. These are just all the fun things coming out this week. However, if you want to help us out use the links we provide on the side to do your Amazon shopping. Anything you buy during that session will send a little money our way and we can keep on doing our best to entertain you. We’re basically trained monkeys. We need treats to get motivated. We also have a store full of wonderful items and there’s always the handy-dandy donate buttons all over. Don’t forget to drop a comment below. We’ll be picking one commenter to win a $2o Amazon Gift Card.

DmC: Devil May Cry 360 | PS3
I’m sure you’ve already formed some opinions about the Devil May Cry reboot, but I HIGHLY recommend checking it out before you make your final judgments. As a lover of the series I’m still waiting for Devil May Cry 5, however, DmC is a goddamn beautiful vision and great in its own way. I may or may not be a little biased toward Ninja Theory…

BioShock Ultimate Rapture Edition 360 | PS3
For only $29.99 this bundle is a fucking steal. It collects BioShock 1 and 2 as well as all of the DLC packs- including Minerva’s Den- and the Museum of Orphaned Concepts. If you don’t already own both games this is definitely the right time to check them out.


Taken 2
Yay kidnapping! If you want to watch more of Liam Neeson just being a total badass then this is the flick for you. Might I also recommend purchasing Stolen so you can compare the two films? Cage vs Neeson. Neeson obviously wins.


Prometheus to Alien: The Evolution
If you ignore most of Prometheus this is a pretty awesome collection. This collection contains the recent prequel as well as all four of the Alien movies. It’s a little on the pricey side but hey, treat yourself. You’re worth it. Probably.


I Am Bruce Lee
Complete with interviews from Dana White, Mickey Rourke, and Lee’s wife and daughter, I Am Bruce Lee honors the icon’s life. The film also collects some of Bruce Lee’s best moments as well as some rare footage. Any fan of martial arts movies or even just the man himself will want to check this out.


30 Nights of Paranormal Activity with the Devil Inside the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
If the question “What has French Stewart been up to lately?” has been on your mind a lot, here’s the answer. I hope you’re happy.

Halo 4 $39.99
Far Cry 3 $49.99

    1. Yeah, homeboy, get on that. Well, the first one. I still hate the second one with a white-hot passion. But the first game is one of the best games of the generation.

  1. I haven’t played a DMC game since the original one, but the new one looks awesome. I’ll definitely picking that one up.

  2. New Dante is pretty hip, and i mean that in a good way. Dude’s /fa/.

    Tooken 2 was mediocre as hell. Cage would’ve been an improvement.

    And I guess I should pick up that Bioshock collection. Haven’t played it yet, i guess 6 years late is better than never.

  3. The only thing I’m remotely interested in is DmC but Sleeping Dogs burnt me on buying brand new games. I usually wait for a bit of a sale before I dive in now.

  4. DmC is on my list between the reviews, the livestreams I’ve watched, and my enjoyment of Enslaved I think I’ll enjoy it.

  5. man and i just bought bioshock 1+2 and i still cant play them because im too scared to get through the 2nd level 🙁

  6. I avoided Taken 2, didn’t think Taken needed a sequel… and come on, is he really that bad at protecting his family in the first place? 😛

  7. I need to play catch up on my comics more than anything right now. I haven’t read anything past issue 6 of the new 52’s Batman.

  8. I bought DmC yesterday and couldn’t love it more. Anyone hung up on it needs to just shut up and play it. You won’t be disappointed.

    Fun fact! The first game I bought the day I turned 17 (the first M-rated game I bought for myself) was the original Devil May Cry. Now, eight and a half years later, I buy the new DmC. Fun!

  9. Too many games! I just bought a bunch off steam over their holiday sale(that I haven’t even played) and now just got a DOTA invite too.

  10. Still busy w/ Anarchy Reigns but really want to check out DmC, with the main reason being that it was developed by Ninja Theory (which made the wonderful Enslaved).

  11. When I get some of that sweet, sweet tax refund money, I will definitely be spending it on Amazon via Laser time!

  12. That Bioshock collection is a pretty good deal. I wish I hadn’t played them yet so I had an excuse to buy it.

  13. Been waiting forever for DMC to come out. Loved the demo and the game looks like a great continuation of the franchise. Buying soon…. just need money first.

  14. I trust Ninja Theory. Enslaved is one of my favorite games of this generation and I want to make sure this succeeds.

    Also, I’ve played every DMC game, and DMC 4 was pretty shit. Glad they went in a different direction instead of doubling down on it and making it suck like RE 6.

  15. Is Prometheus really that bad compared to the rest of the Alien franchise? Sure it makes about as much sense as using a hammer to fix a broken arm but interesting things happen, that can hardly be said about the last half of the Alien Tetralogy.

  16. Man how am I sposed ta choose between all these awesome games coming out, Fire Emblem, Ni No Kuni, DMC, and a few other cool looking games and then March is filled with them.
