If you’re ready for a FPS crime spree, you’ll be happy to hear that earlier this week Payday 2 had its August 13th release day announced – in other words, you can get it as soon as next Tuesday. Preorder the PC version now and you’ll receive the Armored Transport Heist DLC pack, which gives the team an opportunity to rob a bank-on-wheels. This game also qualifies for Green Man Gaming’s 20% off coupon code that reduces the price from $29.99 to $24. Robbing banks with friends, why not?

It’s not always easy to convince a group of friends to get into a multiplayer co-op game, but what if you could pick up a 4-pack for less than the usual price of one game? It’s doable thanks to this week’s “Multiplayer Madness” sale at Green Man Gaming. The games are instantly up to 75% off, and there’s a 20% off coupon code to reduce the prices further.

Like a slow-moving radiation leak, Tales of Xillia finally made its way from Japan to North American shores this past Tuesday. If you enjoy a good old JRPG (originally released in 2011), you’ll be happy to note the North American version has a decent Metacritic rating of 79/100 and an even higher 8.7/10 user score.

Tuesday’s PS3 release is going for $59.99, but bargain hunters take note: you can stack two coupon codes if you shop online with GameStop. At checkout, apply SDEALS10 and SAVER coupon codes for $10 off Tales of Xilla, reducing the price to $49.99 with free shipping.
