Preorder the Sega Genesis Mini with 40 Pre-Loaded Games for $79.99

The Sega Genesis Mini is now up for preorder with a slated release date of September 19. 40 games will be pre-loaded onto the console. The 10 we know of at the moment are:

  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Castlevania: Bloodlines
  • Space Harrier 2
  • Shining Force
  • Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
  • Toe Jam & Earl
  • Comix Zone
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Altered Beast
  • Gunstar Heroes

All reports indicate that Sega is going to do this release right. According to our own Seth Macy, “if you have emulation worries, Sega has M2 working on the emulation for its mini console. If you’re unfamiliar with M2, it handled the excellent Sega Ages Collections and also the delightful Sega 3D Classic collections for Nintendo 3DS. It would be hard to find a developer with a better pedigree to handle the software for the first-party Sega Genesis Mini.


ASUS ROG Strix Hero II Intel Core i7-8750H 6-Core 15″ 1080p 144Hz IPS Laptop with 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, GeForce GTX 1060 6GB for $950

Get a $550 discount on this well regarded ASUS ROG Strix Hero II gaming laptop that boasts a GTX 1060 video card with the full 6GB of VRAM. The Strix Hero also sports a 15″ 1080p IPS display that can push 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms gtg response time, enough cooling to keep the laptop from overheating even during intense gaming, and sweet RGB gaming keyboard.


Sony Playstation VR Astro Bot and Moss Bundle for $249.99

Take $50 off the regular price and free 2-day shipping at Walmart. The PSVR is still the most economical way to immerse yourself in the world of high-definition VR gaming, especially when you consider the fact that the PS4 ecosystem is far, far less expensive that a gaming computer that can handle the Rift or Vive. If you do jump onto the PSVR bandwagon, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Beat Saber. It’s easily the best game for the PSVR.


SanDisk Ultra 256GB Micro SDXC Card for $37.99

After plunking down $300 on a Nintendo Switch, you might find it hard to spend more money on accessories. Unfortunately, the Switch only comes with 32GB of onboard storage, which is inadequate if you hope to build out any kind of digital library. Fortunately, you can increase your storage capacity 9-fold for only $38. For most people, a 256GB card is all you’ll ever need to hold every single one of your games.

Although we’d recommend the SanDisk Ultra memory card as your storage card of choice for the Switch, the Samsung EVO Select is technically faster and only a few dollars more expensive. It makes no difference on the Switch platform, but it might be a better card if you plan to use it in digital cameras, action cameras like the GoPro, or a smartphone that can record 4K video.


Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch (Large) for $99.99

This deal might not last the entire day. We’ve never seen the Fitbit Blaze priced below $150, even after it was replaced by the more current Fitbit Versa. Today, Verizon is clearing it out for only $99.99. This is a fitness tracker with heart rate monitoring and smartwatch in one. You can track steps, distance, calories burned, floors climbed while at the same time staying connected with call, text, and app alerts.

Not only are you getting a GTX 1080 video card capable of handling any game out there (including VR), you’re also getting an 8th gen Intel Core i7 6-core processor and 16GB of RAM. If you want an even greater improvement in performance, I would recommend getting an SSD to pair with the included 1TB hard drive.
