Yesterday Polygon published our list of the best games of 2019 so far and of course Capcom’s fantastic remake of the survival horror classic, Resident Evil 2, made the list. Our exclusive deal from Fanatical, taking 25 percent off the PC version, is still active with code ZOMBIE25. If you haven’t yet played the game that “is everything a video game remake should be”, now’s a great time to pick it up.
If you’re in the market for a new console, all Xbox One bundles are $50 off right now. That includes pre-orders for the upcoming Metro Saga bundle, which will come with all three Metro games when Metro Exodus is released on Feb. 15.
Finally, you may have noticed on Thursday that we launched a new mid-week deals column focusing on a few of the very best deals of the week in the categories you’re most likely to be shopping for. That will give us the opportunity to go into a little more detail about an individual TV or game and explain why it’s a good deal. Of course if you’re just browsing, this weekend column will still compile all of the gaming deals worth checking out. And as always we’ll be tweeting deals throughout the week at @PolygonDeals.
