The Moneysaver: Of Batmen and Blood Dragons

Just as quickly as Batman: Arkham Origins was announced, it's been discounted. By "discounted," I mean $10 in Amazon credit for pre-ordering on any platform, which is basically the same thing. If you don't like Batman, we've got more Batman for you anyway, with deals on Injustice: Gods Among Us for both platforms. Hit the jump for Batman, deals on Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and tons more.

Not only are we getting the prequel new console/PC Batman this year, but perhaps even more exciting is Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate for 3DS and Vita, "a 2.5-D Metroid-style game developed by Armature Studios, the development house led by ex-Retro staffers who worked on Metroid Prime."

The Moneysaver: Of Batmen and Blood Dragons

Monoprice is finally letting users pre-order their perpetually sold out 27" IPS LED Monitor. Basically it's the best price on the best screen around. It was yesterday's Dealzmodo deal of the day, and I personally use the 30-inch version of this at home. It's a conversation starter.
