Mario Kart 8 is all set to launch on May 30, and European gamers are getting a special treat. Nintendo has unveiled a Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition deal that will net players a Spiny Shell collector’s item, pictured above. Hopefully it won’t ruin as many friendships as the item does in the game itself! You can catch a teaser for this special edition by clicking below.
The latest Humble Bundle deal features games with the namesake of Sid Meier, the creator of the Civilization games. The bundle has Civilization I through Civilization IV for any amount donated. Donating above the average unlocks Civilization V and the Gods and Kings DLC for Civilization V, and donating about $15 unlocks the Brave New World expansion for Civilization V.
If you haven’t heard the news already, Nintendo has made The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition free on the 3DS eShop until Feb. 2. News comes via a tweet from Nintendo, which notes that the promotion is being held in celebration of A Link Between Worlds. Unfortunately, this promotion looks as though it’s exclusive to the U.S. and Canada.
Unlike the original multiplayer-only GameBoy Advance version of the game, the 3DS version includes a single player mode that allows players to collect rupees and fight enemies. If you haven’t already, head to the eShop and download Four Swords before it’s too late!
Tired of your PS3? Well, Microsoft has a solution and it comes in the form of an interesting promotion in which the company will sell you an Xbox One for $399 – the same price as PS4, surprise! – if you “ditch” your PS3 at a Microsoft Store in the U.S. Hit the jump to view the full promotion.
2K and Bethesda Team up for Discounted Bundles, Skyrim & Bioshock Infinite/Borderlands 2 & Dishonored
Bethesda and 2K Games are teaming up to bring Xbox 360 and PS3 owners two very cool bundles, both of which will be available Feb. 11 for $29.99. The first bundle will include The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Bioshock Infinite, while the second will pair Borderlands 2 and Dishonored.
The new Humble Bundle X has been updated, with more great games available if you pay more than the average, which currently stands at a little over $5. The games Hoard, Strike Suit Zero, and Toki Tori 2+ have all been added, which brings the total number of games to nine. Nine games for $5 is a great deal, so grab those games now!
If you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber and have yet to pick up Bioshock: Infinite, make that decision a yes tomorrow while it’s free. The store update will also include the removal of Ico (PS3) and Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath (Vita) from the free Instant Game program so make sure you add those to your gaming collection before the update.
The holiday season is over now, but that doesn’t mean the deals have to stop. The special Mario & Luigi Dream Team 3DS XL that launched one month ago is currently on sale at Walmart for just $150. That’s a savings of $50 on the special silver model that comes with Dream Team pre-installed. If you haven’t picked up a 3DS yet and you’ve got some extra Christmas cash in your pocket, this is definitely a good deal for you.
The new, ever-fancy, Humble Indie Bundle is now available! It went live at 19:00 GMT, and is chock full of indie games to enjoy.
With Humble’s usual donation system, you can choose how much money you want to give to the developers, the charities, and Humble itself. For as little as $1, you can receive To the Moon, Joe Danger 2: The Movie, Papo and Yo, and the sequel to the indie hit BIT.TRIP.RUNNER, Runner2! Plus, by paying more than the average (around $6 at time of writing), you will also receive the fantastic Reus, along with the ridiculously entertaining Surgeon Simulator 2013.
The final day of the Steam Holiday Sale is upon us, which means today is your last chance to grab up any must-have titles on your list. The sale will end tomorrow at 1 p.m. Eastern, so act fast! Hit the jump to view the full list of titles on sale.

If you’re late to the party on playing the BioShock series, now’s your chance to get all caught up without breaking your wallet. All three games are currently available in a bundle on Steam for $14.99. As Steam’s daily deal, this bargain will be gone soon, so get it while you can.
