Since there are a truly absurd amount of amiibo figures out there to collect and they range from dirt cheap to ‘remortgage-your-house’ price levels, we’ve put together a guide to the best amiibo deals and prices for all the available figures. Come take a look.
Running from today until Friday 28th April, the folks from TheGameCollection are letting you get an extra 10% off the price of selected games when you pre-order and use the code HEALTHPACK at checkout.

Upcoming insanity generator, Puyo Puyo Tetris is up on Amazon UK right now for its cheapest price yet. Prime members can pre-order the game – which releases later this month – for £17.99 while non-Prime members will get the game for £19.99. For how addictive, bizarre and fun this game is, that’s a bargain.
GAME’s exclusive Limited Edition version of Halo 5: Guardians is not only back in stock over at the company’s site, but also reduced in price down to £14.99 for a brand new copy (or £12.99 for a pre-owned one, if you like). This is the version that comes with a fancy case and a metalcraft figure, for the record.

Titanfall 2, one of last year’s best games and the finest example of positive relationships between humans and robots, is down to its lowest price yet over at Amazon US right now. The console version of the game is down to $24 on Xbox One or PS4 and if you don’t already have this one, you really should pick it up. It’s superb.
While stock lasts and for a limited time offer, NewEgg will sell you this 500GB Samsung EVO 850 solid state drive for the rather attractive price of $133.99 (down from its original $200 price point) through its eBay outlet. The price will be reflected once you add the SSD to your basket.
