Yes you’ve all now discovered that instant headline poetry is not my forte – even when inspired by a buy 2 get 1 free Dr. Suess deal. Don’t like it? So Suess me. Alright, alright I’ll stop and get on with the nerd love.

There’s a buy 2 get 1 free Dr. Seuss book deal going on right now. Hear that Horton you fat bastard?

Like to game?  Not just RPGs and whatnot but family games?  Get 50% off select family games now. Lots of cool titles.

Speaking of cool titles, both Transformers (Two-Disc Special Edition + BD Live) [Blu-ray] and Star Wars: The Clone Wars (Widescreen Edition) are on sale this week.

With this Christmas looking to be the time Blu-Ray actually breaks into the market for real, here’s a great deal. Buy one of these Sony Blu-ray set-top players or a PS3 and two Sony Blu-ray Discs from the list below and receive two additional Sony Blu-ray Discs from this list free. At checkout, enter the code BUY2GET2 to receive your discount. Hurry–this offer is only good until November 27.  There’s your excuse for a new PS3 which frankly, I think is a better deal.  Blu-Ray, games all in one.

With more games, Chapter 11 City is offering $20 off when you purchase 2 Wii titles.  Just take advantage of that deal quickly.

Amazon has Alone in the Dark for Xbox 360 or Wii on the cheap today only.  Another video game deal for all consoles and PC is the Buy 2 games, get $25. Buy 3 and get $50. You’ll get your $25 or $50 in the form of an Amazon Gift Certificate.  Again, good only today and only on games at that link.

Need an awesome toy for your kid or anyone who’s longed to see blurily in the dark with no peripheral vision?  The EyeClops Night Vision Infrared Stealth Goggles is for you then! It’s a bit over $11 (14$) off with free shipping.

Another great excuse for buying something – purchase a select digital camera and get a free kingston 4GB SD card for free. Nix. Nada. Nothing.

Two other deals I saw this morning.  Geeks.com is having a Ho Ho Holiday sale where you can score up to 80% off of yesteryear’s select crapware.

Lastly, if you yearn for the times when you could give and receive MegaDamage with a simple laser pistol, flaunt your newest weapon or munchkinize yourself beyond belief of even the most jaded 13 year old GM, Palladium Books is having their yearly Holiday Grab Bag Sale.  $70-$80 worth of stuff for $35!  What stuff?  Who knows!

Late addition – SitePoint is giving away the eBook “The Art and Science of CSS” for free until December 2nd.  Knock yourself out.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
