Two noteworthy deals for the week - both leading candidates for 2014's Game of the Year.
In three days, The Elder Scrolls Online will officially release, but there's no need to wait for the release date to play if you've decided this is the MMO for you. Those who pre-order either the Standard or Imperial Edition can get in right away with an early access head start key. No need to pay the full MSRP, either - digital retailer Green Man Gaming has a 20% off coupon code saving you between $12 and $16, depending on the edition you decide to spring for.
Use that $12-$16 in savings and buy today's crazy physics-ish game Goat Simulator. The game released today on Steam for $9.99, but with the aforementioned coupon, you can get the game for only $8. If playing as a goat roaming through various neighborhoods smashing things isn't your idea of fun, then we'd still suggest checking out the various gameplay videos online.
For those who own Battlefield 4 but haven't moved to Premium yet because of its hefty $50 price tag, the temptation probably just grew with the latest Naval Strike DLC now available for premium members. Fortunately, you can mitigate the cost a little with GameFly's 20% off April-themed coupon code, dropping the price to $40.
Hot Deals of the Week
