Checkpoint: Boxing Day 2011 Edition

It started out as Boxing Day, but retailers have transformed it into Boxing Week. It also used to start on December 26th, but now it starts online December 24th at 8:00 PM EST for most retailers with a website. And if we take digital distribution retailers into consideration, it started whenever Valve put up their holiday Steam sales.

When I started to compile this year’s Boxing Day 2011 round-up post, there wasn’t much of interest. But more and more deals were unearthed, my “Boxing Day” haul grew into something quite substantial:

  1. Killzone 3: Helghast Edition for $19.99 ($110 off)
  2. Nier (360) for $9.99 ($10 off)
  3. Saint’s Row: The Third (PC) for $19.99 ($30 off)
  4. Renegade Ops 4-pack (PC) for $10.19 (~$20 off)
  5. Batman: Arkham City (PC) for $20.92 ($30 off)
  6. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations (360) for $19.99 ($30 off)

Most of those are PC games which I cannot take advantage of until next month’s new bandwidth allotment becomes available.

I wrapped up Dark Souls the other day and started The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. So far so good.

I also played a bit of Uncharted 3’s co-op adventure and Modern Warfare 3’s online multiplayer. You may be surprised to know that the latter was not as bad as when it first launched. I may write up some impressions on it, but between the Dark Souls review and all these games, it may take awhile before I get around to that.
