Get Crysis 2 (PC) for $9.99

That's just one of the heavily discounted games being offered today (and only today) by Amazon. Download 'em while you can! Plus: return of the $129 Nook Color.


Game time!

Today only, Amazon is having a pretty colossal sale on Mac and PC games. They're all downloads, and they're all $10 or less.

For example, Crysis 2, which debuted last March and lists for $39.99, is on sale for $9.99.

A few other titles you might want to consider:

Needless to say, there's some mighty good gaming to be had on the cheap. But act fast: Amazon's sale ends tonight at midnight (PT).

The last two PC games I played were Portal 2 and BioShock 2. Both were outstanding. Any thoughts as to what I should check out next?

Bonus deal: One of my all-time favorite deals is back! While supplies last, Barnes & Noble has the refurbished Nook Color tablet for $129.99 shipped. This is not to be confused with the newer Nook Tablet, though it can run apps and even be rooted to function as a full-blown Android tablet.

Bonus deal No. 2: Awesome deal on an MFP: Office Depot has the Epson WorkForce 545 wireless all-in-one printer for $64.99 shipped, plus sales tax where applicable. I have a slightly higher-end version of this model, and it's terrific. You won't get a better MFP for the price.
