And, if you need new hardware to play these games on, the Nintendo Switch OLED is back in stock today, as well as sales on Joy-Con controllers. These deals, and more below.
Preorder Kirby and the Forgotten Land for $5 Off
Kirby’s upcoming Switch game looks promising, and you can lock in your preorder for Kirby and the Forgotten Land on sale right now on Amazon. New Switch games are usually $59.99, but Amazon’s preorder price for Kirby is listed at $54.99, as reflected once you add to cart. It’s not much, but if you’re planning to pick the game up on launch you might as well save a few bucks.
Save $20 on Monster Hunter Stories 2 on Switch
Monster Hunter Stories 2 is great, and it’s on sale right now on Amazon for $39.99. This Switch sequel to the 3DS’ Monster Hunter Stories improves upon the original in every way, and the stories are separate, so you don’t have to play the original to enjoy this game’s story. If you’re unfamiliar, Monster Hunter Stories is Capcom’s take on the Pokemon formula, as you capture and train Monsters from the Monster Hunter universe to compete in turn-based battles. It’s a much easier entry point into the series than the mainline Monster Hunter games, especially for younger players.

50″ Vizio M6 4K QLED Smart TV
The 2021 Vizio M6 QLED TV has been marked down from $530 all the way to $328. That’s a fantastic deal for an excellent TV that boasts a quantum LED panel with full-array LED backlighting and variable refresh rate. It’s also compatible with both Google Chromecast and Apple AirPlay 2. Note that although this TV is advertised as having HDMI 2.1 inputs, it can output 4K @ 60Hz, not 120Hz.
65″ LG C1 4K OLED Smart Gaming TV
If money isn’t an object, OLED TVs are considered the best TVs you can buy right now. Compared to traditional LED LCD TVs, they offer better image quality, deeper blacks, better contrast ratio, wider color gamut, and super fast response times. They excel at both gaming and viewing 4K HDR content. In terms of general usability, they consume less power and they’re very thin and sit flusher against the wall. Amongst OLED TVs, the LG C1 is oft considered the flag bearer; it’s the one TV that all other OLED TVs are compared against. The LG OLED TV boasts several generations of optimizations under its belt and the latest C1 model is future proofed with technology like HDMI 2.1 (4K @ 120Hz), variable refresh rate, G-SYNC, the newest LG A9 Gen4 processor and a revamped webOS smart TV interface.
WD Black SN850 1TB M.2 SSD
There’s a new price drop this week that brings the WD SN850 1TB model down to $149.99 without heatsink and $168.99 with heatsink, the lowest prices we’ve seen.

Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED Gaming Monitor
The first QD-OLED panel on the market
After much anticipation, Dell is now offering the Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED gaming monitor for $1299.99 on its website. Although by no means inexpensive, this is the first ever QD-OLED monitor we’ve seen and thus the price point is surprisingly reasonable for the new tech. Undoubtedly due to the hype, it has been going in and out of stock throughout the day, so don’t hesitate if you’ve been waiting for this release. The estimated delivery date has already been extended all the way out to June 1.
10% Off Lowes Gift Cards at Best Buy
You save a lot of money by being your own handyman, and a quick trip to a home improvement store could save you hundreds, if not thousands, compared to hiring a professional. Gift card discounts like these are just icing on the cake, but they come along rarely, so it’s best to stock up when you see one of these deals. Best Buy has both $25 and $100 Lowes gift cards, and they’re both 10% off today.
WD Elements 16TB USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive
If you need every bit of storage space, the biggest hard drives offer the best bang for your buck. In this case, Amazon is offering a WD Elements 16TB hard drive for only $269.99, the lowest price we’ve seen so far this year. That averages out to only $16.87 per terabyte.
LG Ultragear 27GL850 27″ 2560×1440 1ms 144Hz G-SYNC Nano IPS Gaming Monitor
This particular LG Ultragear monitor is a pretty high-end 27″ gaming monitor at a very reasonable price. The 2560×1440 resolution is nice and sharp on the 27″ display, yet it’s forgiving enough to allow mid-range cards like the RTX 3060 Ti or RTX 3070 to handle it beautifully, even at the maximum 144Hz refresh rate for many games. The Nano IPS display is LG’s version of QLED, and it allows for better color handling and higher contrast ratio. It’s also certified G-SYNC compatible, like any high-end gaming should be.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3070 PC for $1499.99
This is the first time we’ve seen an Alienware Aurora gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3070 priced at under $1500. The RTX 3070 is even more powerful than the previous generation’s fastest video card, the RTX 2080 Ti. This is the card to get if you want to push 144Hz frame rates or ultra high settings (or both) at up to 1440p. It’s powerful enough to handle most 4K gaming as well. It’s paired with some great specs, like a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 7 5800 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD.
Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3080 PC for $2199.99
The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (very slightly) more powerful, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 9 5900 CPU, which is one of the best processors you can get at the moment, whether it be for gaming or for workstation purposes. It’s been upgraded with liquid cooling as well. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don’t worry, even the power supply is up to snuff with an ample 1000W rating.
LEGO Pirate Ship Set for $79.99
LEGO fans will love this LEGO Creator Pirate Ship set. With the same LEGO set, you can use the same pieces to build three totally different sets. Choose between a pirate ship, skull island, or a pirate outpost. Rebuilding and replaying with the set keeps the value far beyond the initial construction time.
Arcade1Up The Simpsons Arcade Cabinet
The Simpsons cabinet is a 3:4 replica of the arcade original, making it approximately 4 feet tall. That said, a matching riser is included which raises the height by another 1 foot, giving you the option of both sitting and standing play. Up to 4 players can join in on the classic Simpsons side-scrolling arcade game as Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa. If you don’t have a buddy around to play with, you can hop onto the live WiFi (no subscription required) to play with other remote Arcade1Up players. In addition to the core The Simpsons game, The Simpsons Bowling is also preloaded.
Arcade1Up Mortal Kombat Arcade Cabinet
Starting today at Walmart, the Arcade1Up Mortal Kombat has also dropped in price. Arcade1Up is known for releasing high-quality recreations of your favorite arcade games, and the Mortal Kombat cabinet (or is it Kabinet?) is no exception. In addition to the classic fighting game, the cabinet comes with 11 other games on board. This model doesn’t include a riser.
New Humble Choice PC Bundle: Get Mass Effect Legendary Edition and 7 Other Games for $12
Starting today, you can pick up a copy of Mass Effect Legendary Edition and 7 other PC games for only $11.99. Mass Effect Legendary Edition currently sells for $60 on Steam, so getting that game alone for $12 would already be a fantastic deal. Humble Choice gives you additional perks like access to their Humble Games Collection and up to 20% off Humble Store purchases for the rest of the month. You can cancel your subscription anytime.
85″ Sony X91J 4K Full Array LED Google TV (2021)
Projectors are out. You can score one of Sony’s higher-end full-array LED TVs of 2021 – at a massive size no less – for under $2000. A true (not simulated) 4K projector costs upwards for $4K+ and even at the price it couldn’t touch the image quality like you would on this TV. Compared to a “regular” 65″ TV set, the size difference is huge. An 85″ TV boasts a whopping 70% larger viewing area than a 65″ TV. You definitely won’t get a bigger screen AND amazing image quality for the same price anywhere else right now. It also boasts HDMI 2.1 for 4K @ 120Hz and VRR and it looks good in HDR thanks to its wide color gamut and full array LED backlighting with local dimming.
RTX 30 Series Video Card Bundles at Newegg
If you prefer to build your own gaming PC instead and you absolutely cannot wait any longer for an RTX series video card, check out these combo bundles at Newegg. Pick up an RTX 3060, RTX 3070, or RTX 3080 video card bundled with a motherboard, SSD, RAM, computer case, or PSU. You’ll get a lot more value than spending the same amount (or more) on just the video card alone from a scalper on eBay.
Nintendo Switch Online Membership
One of the biggest advantages of the Nintendo Switch Online membership over PS Plus or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is that it is way, way cheaper. That said, any extra discount helps. Nintendo Switch Online is required for online play in games like Super Mario Kart or Splatoon, downloading custom maps in Super Mario Maker 2, playing free retro SNES games, saving your game data to the cloud, and much more.
Funko POP TV: Peacemaker Figures
The figures run the gamut, but they’re all very fun and very silly. We’ve got one of Peacemaker holding his trusty pet Eagly. We’ve got Vigilante and Judomasater. We’ve got Peacemaker in his tighty whities. And we have not one but two versions Eagly. There’s the standard one and an Amazon-exclusive “flocked” variant.
Most of these Peacemaker Funkos are set to release in July, though Peacemaker with Eagly is currently scheduled for August. Not sure why, and that could always change before the date rolls around.
