Tell Me Why Chapters 1-3 for Xbox One / Series X|S or PC
Store: Microsoft Store
Shipping: Digital download
Lowest By: $20
Tell Me Why hails from Life Is Strange creators Dontnod Entertainment and it's free for the entirety of June in recognition of Pride Month, saving you $20. It's very much in the same wheelhouse as Life Is Strange from a gameplay perspective. Tell Me Why is notably one of the very few games to feature a trans playable character and while it's not my place to say definitively whether or not it captures that experience appropriately, the developers at least seemed very sincere in their efforts to treat the narrative they wanted to tell with a considered amount of reverence.

Best Switch Video Game Deal
Hades for Nintendo Switch
Lowest By: $8
Regarded by many as one of 2020's best games and as a milestone moment for roguelites, Hades is finally coming to PlayStation and Xbox later this summer. However, if you're keen on playing it now then you can grab the Switch version for $17, which amounts to a savings of $8. It's quite rare for a game to so effectively nail audio visual presentation, moment to moment gameplay, and manage to jam in a wealth of meaningful storytelling too but Supergiant Games' retelling of Greek mythology manages to do just that.

Today we shine the light of discovery upon the glorious racing wheel. Watch as it recoils, hissing in furious vampiric terror at being so suddenly exposed to the practical illuminating shine of savings. The Logitech G920 Dual-Motor Feedback Driving Force Racing Wheel (with responsive pedals & shifter) is at the lowest price we could find by $6. However! Most places charge $250 or more ergo, a good deal this is. It has an on-wheel D-pad, console buttons, paddle shifters, and solid-steel shaft shifter. Let us now dim the searing spotlight of savings to a more comfortable level for our darkness dwelling friend. "Vroom vroom!", it mutters agreeably as the lights come down. "Vroom vroom!"
