Alright gamers! Let’s talk a bit about shopping. Where do you go when the newest games come out? Are you loyal to one store or do you shop around for the best deal?
Keeping our family of 6 in all of the latest and greatest games and electronics is not cheap. Finding any deals and ways to save on gaming are a must.
No, the newest games do not always come out on sale but maybe there’s a bundle deal or at the very least, free shipping. It’s worth taking a quick look to see what kind of offers are available.
We are pretty loyal to Best Buy. It’s usually one of the first stores we look at for new game releases or electronics purchases.
With a quick check on Groupon Coupons, we can see if we can save on gaming! Or electronics, movies, appliances, tvs, computers, etc.
Some of the offers are available to use in store or online. Which I like. There’s a lot that we might order online but having the option to shop in the store is great too. You have a coupon either way.
Groupon has an entire coupon section for a ton of stores. If you don’t find a coupon for Best Buy, you can always look for other offers. Maybe Walmart or even Toys R Us. Right now there are 79,862 free coupons at 11,797 stores.
That’s a lot of savings. Anytime you need to buy, make a quick stop on Groupon first to check to see what coupons and offers you’ll find. It’s worth a quick check.
What games are you looking forward to coming out? Is there a deal you have your eye on? Let us know in the comment section below.
With the recent update to Mario Kart 8, Nintendo added the super fast 200cc mode. Unfortunately, they didn’t tell people how to go about accessing the new mode. In an effort to save you some time and stress tracking down this information, I’ve laid it all out for you here.
It turns out that the new 200cc mode has the same requirements as unlocking mirror mode (where you race on reversed versions of the tracks).
What you need to do:
You will need to get a gold trophy in each of the original 8 cups, by finishing first in each cup on 150cc mode. The cups you will need gold trophies for are:
- Banana Cup
- Flower Cup
- Leaf Cup
- Lightning Cup
- Mushroom Cup
- Shell Cup
- Special Cup
- Star Cup
You must be racing in 150cc mode in order for the win to count towards the unlock.
What you do not need to do:
- You DO NOT need to finish first on each track. As long as you accrue enough points to finish first overall in each cup, your win will qualify towards the unlock.
- You DO NOT need to win trophies for any DLC cups (Bell Cup, Crossing Cup, Egg Cup, and Triforce Cup as of this writing).
My kids and I found it easiest to win gold trophies when we played multiplayer grand prix and worked together as a team. We would concentrate on only attacking the computer-controlled racers, while being careful not to hit each other with shells, etc.
How fast is 200cc?
200cc mode is FAST. Be prepared to drift a lot. Here’s a quick clip from one of our recent races:
