More Amazon Deals - Batman, FEAR

I'm sitting here browsing the 'nets while watching the Steelers and Eagles play an embarrassingly terrible first half of football. While this game isn't very interesting, Amazon has a couple of Digital Deals of the Week that definitely deserve some attention.

Both the Batman Arkham Action Pack (which includes Arkham Asylum GOTY and Arkham City vanilla) and the F.E.A.R Ultimate Pack (all three titles plus some DLC for the first) are available for $10. If you haven't used it yet, promo code OCTOFUN1 can be applied for an additional 25% off, bringing each pack to $7.50 before tax.

I've skipped Batman deals several times in the past because of the size of my Steam backlog, but this particular deal is way too good to pass up. Both Arkham games have a score of 91/100 on Metacritic; nabbing two critically-acclaimed games (released in the last 3 years) for less than 8 bucks is pretty amazing in my book.

The F.E.A.R. deal doesn't look quite as appealing to me, but there's a lot of content there for the money. I remember the first game being fun and pretty original when it was released in 2005, but I haven't played either of the more recent additions to the series. The general consensus seems to be that the series has gotten worse with each game - the original FEAR has an 88/100 on Metacritic, while the two sequels have scores of 79 and 74.

While the deals should stick around for several days, the promo code might expire as soon as tonight. If you're interested, you can pick up the deals here.
