When his parents denied him a Super NES, he got mad. When they traded a prize Sega Genesis for a 2400 baud modem, he got even. Years of Internet shareware, eBay'd possessions and video game testing jobs after that, he joined Engadget. He helped found The Verge, and later served as Gizmodo's reviews editor. When he's not madly testing laptops, apps, virtual reality experiences, and whatever new gadget will supposedly change the world, he likes to kick back with some games, a good Nerf blaster, and a bottle of Tejava.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

PUBG Studio

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) was one of the hottest games ever to hit Windows PC -- to the point its creators would have just been throwing away money if they put the game on sale. So they didn't. Until now.

Today, you can finally pick up a copy of PUBG for a substantial discount. It's $20 on Steam right now (normally $30). The sale runs through July 5.

It's a good time to pick it up, too: on June 22, the game is officially adding the intense jungle map that players have been testing for months now, plus a lot of other tweaks. Here's all the details.

If you're not sure whether a nail-biting 1 vs. 100 survival game is your cup of tea, maybe try PUBG Mobile first for your iOS or Android device? It's a pretty great mini version of the full game, and it's free to download

Of course, there's always Fortnite if you'd prefer a zanier battle royale. PUBG may have come first, but Epic's game is the one that's making waves in the industry.
