Earlier this week, Blizzard Entertainment announced Overwatch’s 27th hero. Long story short, she’s dope. Torbjorn’s daughter and Reinhardt’s goddaughter, Brigitte is a tank-like support character that sports a shield and a rocket flail. She’s been received well by Overwatch fans all around and at Heroes Never Die, we said she’s the game’s most interesting support yet. If this sounds enticing and you want to give Overwatch a shot, Amazon has the game of the year edition available on Xbox One and PS4 for less than $39.99.

If a new game isn’t quite your speed this week and you’re looking for a new console, there are plenty of deals available on those, as well. A Super Mario Odyssey Nintendo Switch bundle is going for about $350 at B&H and, while this isn’t too much lower than traditional retail pricing, any discount on a Switch bundle is still a minor miracle. Xbox One consoles are also being bundled for a discount with great games like Destiny 2 and Grand Theft Auto 5.




Commerce Team Picks

  • Green Man Gaming is really pulling out all of the stops for the month of March. The retailer is offering new deals every day for March Madness. They’ve already featured games like Cuphead, and there are sure to be other great games on sale over the next few weeks.
  • The Super Mario cereal is now an add-on item at Amazon! It’s only $2.98 and ships with any order of more than $25. Is it good? Who cares. Try it, find out and keep the box.
  • Earlier this week, The Verge had a beat on a USB adapter that turns a PS4 controller into a Nintendo Switch controller. It’s a great deal if you’re a PS4 and Switch owner considering buying a pro controller or a Switch owner that doesn’t like the pro controller.
