Listen up if you're particularly fond of classic 2D platformers, old-school fighters, or general nostalgia. SNK Playmore is currently offering all of its paid games for just 99 cents apiece. For one title, The Rhythm of Fighters, this is the usual price. For the nine other releases available, this is a discount of roughly 75%, as they usually go for around $3.99. That means you could go through the list and get the full collection for the same amount three games would usually cost.
Newegg is offering up a pretty compelling deal on the Nexus 7 right now. Those interested in picking up a refurbished 16GB model can do so for about $103 (before tax) using VISA Checkout, after a $50 rebate.
This deal is actually a combination of promotions from Newegg - the site is offering 10% off (up to $20) when users select VISA Checkout and use promo code VCO, and Newegg's listing for the refurbished 16GB Nexus 7 offers a $50 rebate (via prepaid card).
Even if large swathes of people are able to get by just fine with 16 or 32GB of internal storage, I know there are more than a few reading this site who simply find that limitation unbearable. I understand. If my smartphone has all the power and functionality of a mini-computer, why can't it have the storage of one as well? For this reason, many people hold on tightly to devices with microSD card slots, and for them, there occasionally comes a deal like this one.
Update 8/18/14: The deal that quickly sold out last time is back.
A 16GB Nexus 7 might leave you tight on space, especially if you plan on playing multiple games on it, but at $129.99 this restriction can be overlooked. The tablet is again available at this remarkable price on eBay Daily Deals, and while it's a refurbished model, beggars can't be choosers when we're talking $100 off.
To make the tablet even more affordable, shipping is free.
We've already drawn attention to Terraria on the Play Store, where it's still on sale for $1.99 after nearly a month. For people who enjoy good sandbox games with 8-bit inspired graphics, and have grown tired of that other one, then this is an easy recommendation. In addition to Google Play, it's also available in the Amazon Appstore for the same $1.99, a sizable discount from the regular price of $4.99.
Far be it from me to tell you what to do with your hard-earned money, assuming of course that you worked hard to earn it. If not, please disregard and just do what I say. For everyone else, consider this—you can spend your money on nothing and just have money, or you can exchange it for goods and services at a lower than usual cost. In this case, you get apps.
Regardless of whether you use Amazon's app store for Android, there's no denying that a free app every day is a good deal. Of course, sometimes the deals are better than usual. Today's free app of the day is Servers Ultimate Pro, which is normally $8.99.
For those not acquainted with the app, it allows users to run servers from their mobile device, with over 70 protocols supported (see the full list in the app's description), and a heaping handful of network tools.
The Asus Transformer Pad TF701T has hit a new low, but it this case, that's a good thing. Shoppers can now find this 10-inch tablet on Amazon marked down to a very reasonable $279.99. It will still set buyers back $534.99 to get this thing with the dock included, but that has always been an optional add-on (Update: much cheaper - about $415 - if you buy the dock separately).
We've grown accustomed to seeing a new Nexus phone launch each year, and it looks like 2014 may not disappoint. But if the rumored Shamu device does end up with a 5.9" display, that will leave plenty of Nexus fans with a reason to stick with the Nexus 5. It's smaller, and as the deals continue to roll in, it will be cheaper too. Today we see the phone on eBay for $329.99.
