Game time! If you like to blow up stuff real good, and I know you do, it's hard to beat the Call of Duty series.
For a limited time, StackSocial is offering the Call of Duty Bundle (Mac) for $39.99. The bundle includes the following five titles, all of them linked to GameSpot reviews where applicable:
- Call of Duty 2
- Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
- Call of Duty: Black Ops
- Call of Duty: Black Ops - Annihilation & Escalation Content Pack
- Call of Duty: Black Ops - Rezurrection Content Pack
As you can see, Call of Duty 2 earned an 8.5 rating, while Modern Warfare and Black Ops each received a 9.0 and an Editors' Choice Award. These are, by most accounts, some of the best first-person shooters of all time.
Although StackSocial pegs the combined value at $130, it's actually closer to $120, as Black Ops currently sells on Steam for $40, not $50. That's a very small nitpick: this is still a crazy-good deal. It's like buying Black Ops and getting a whole mess of bonus stuff for free.
And speaking of Steam, that's the service you'll use to activate and download the games. Although Calls of Duty 2 and 4 are available for both Windows and Mac, Black Ops is Mac-only.
Consequently, I wouldn't recommend this for Windows users, but Mac users are definitely looking at weeks of run-and-gun fun.
Bonus deal: Can you believe MP3 players have been around for only about 15 years? Seems like forever. Anyway, here's a solid deal on what is arguably the best-designed MP3 player to date: Overrunz.com has the refurbished current-gen iPod Shuffle for $29.99, plus $5 for shipping. Available in your choice of slate, blue, or pink, the Shuffle features 2GB of storage, a 15-hour battery, Apple's VoiceOver function, and a 90-day warranty. It clips just about anywhere you see fit.
