Free Europa Universalis 3, Plus SimCity Drops to $32

Raise your hand if you're surprised by big price drops on the most controversial Triple-A game in recent history so soon after release.

Now that the server overload nightmare is basically over, there are probably quite a few gamers looking to get into the latest SimCity. And right on schedule, the highly anticipated price drop has arrived. GameFly has the game down to $31.99 after a $20 instant savings discount and stacking 20% off coupon code. We've seen price drops to $39.99 in the recent past, but this makes a new low by $8. Currently other online retailers are at the full $59.99 list price.

Paradox strategy games aren't for everyone, but if you're up for a hard core RTS, GameFly has the Europa Universalis 3 Chronicles download available for free. Convenient, since you'll have just enough time to learn the in-depth mechanics of EU3 before Europa Universalis 4 releases later this year (Q3 2013). Downloading from GameFly today may be a bit slow given how popular this deal is liable to be. The offer is scheduled to run through this Thursday, April 11th.

The highly anticipated PS3 exclusive The Last of Us is on sale again for preorder after a $10 coupon at NewEgg. Considering we last saw it on sale back in October 2012, this is probably one of the last chances you'll have to buy it at discount before the June 14 release date.

Earlier this week, Target dropped the popular Ni No Kuni $20 off the $60 list price, with Amazon quickly following suit. Although Target quickly sold out of copies, Amazon continues to sell the game for the reduced $39.99 price, with other retailers still selling at list price. Since its January 22nd PS3 release, Ni No Kuni's previous best (and only) discount was to $50 for a week in February - $10 more than the current deal.
