Rockers, it is that time of year again where all the major video game corporations compete against one another to sell you a variety of different games of your choosing on the console of your choice.

Some of the most notable sales that are being currently offered are Shadows of Mordor ($4.99), Dark Souls 3 ($23.99), Doom ($14.99), Dishonored 2 ($19.99), and Prey ($39.59).
