Best Prime Day Nintendo Switch deal
Why we like it
The Nintendo Switch Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Bundle is Nintendo’s latest holiday-themed console option, and it’s a fantastic deal. It comes with a standard, non-OLED Switch, neon red and blue Joy-Con controllers, a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and a three-month membership to Nintendo Switch Online. It’s all just $299, which is what you’d normally pay for the console on its own. You’re saving about $69 by purchasing this bundle, and getting a game and Nintendo Switch Online for free, which is a great reason to go ahead and get your own Switch.

Why we like it

Best Prime Day video game deal
Why we like it
Diablo IV is one of the biggest action RPGs out right now, and its second season of content is about to kick off on October 17. This bloody adventure is equal parts badass and creepy, as it picks up where its predecessor Diablo III left off. Make your own character after choosing from a variety of classes to slay hordes of demons — oh, and the queen of Hell herself, Lilith. Get ready for the new season by enlisting friends to play with, because as we all know that buds who play Diablo IV together slay together. Naturally.
