The Best Cheap PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, Board Game, Tech, and Toy Deals Worth Scoring on October 18, 2021

It’s October and we’ve got our eyes peeled for deals that will reduce inventory of old stock before Black Friday. Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy will all want to clear their shelves and warehouse space of any video game, toy, board game, peripheral, or gadget that’s getting a new version or planned refresh. You can also expect new toys and games like the new Hot Wheels Mario Kart collaboration to hit shelves this month ahead of the holidays. It’s not uncommon for these new products to see early discounts of up to 20% that are aimed at driving excitement and early demand before gifting season. Shop shrewdly and buy early this season, especially popular items or franchises that you want or plan to gift. Everything from board games to electronics and physical video games are likely to be impacted by manufacturing shortages this season.


Our Favorite Deals Right Now

Here’s what we’ve got our eyes on today. If you’re not feeling these bargains, there’s plenty more deals to browse in the overwhelmingly expanded categories below.





What’s Dropping in October

The overarching theme this holiday season will be a diabolical quest by retailers, publishers, and brands to try and get as much of your money as possible. They’ve all spent far more money than usual to stay afloat as they deal with the effects of the global pandemic. Smart companies have also focused on innovation during the last couple of years. Expect to be enticed and wowed with new shiny stuff to play and enjoy this season, because as much as these companies want your hard-earned spend, you’re going to want to give it to the best of ’em.

October is a legitimate blockbuster month for new video game releases, and our list of favorites threatens to break our bank account.

October 2021 Video Game New Releases

Nintendo Switch New Releases

FIFA 22 and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes are both finally available to Switch players in the first week of Oct. Metroid Dread drops on October 8th alongside the new Switch OLED model, and is arguably the most anticipated Nintendo Switch release of the year. Mario Party Superstars and the N64 update to the Nintendo Switch Online virtual console library release at the end of the month.

PlayStation 5 and Xbox One New Releases

Switch players need not apply, Far Cry 6 hits previous and current-gen Xbox and PlayStation consoles on October 7th. That should really be enough for any of us, but there’s always more games to play. Pick up the 4-player co-op game, Back 4 Blood, on Oct. 12th, The Riftbreaker on Oct. 14th, Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles, Crysis Remastered Trilogy, and/or NHL 22 (Chel 22 if you’re cool) on Oct. 15th. Both Nascar 21: Ignition and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy release on October 26th.

All platforms get Nickelodeon All Star Brawl (basically Super Smash Bros. with all the Nick characters you’ve dreamt of punishing) and Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania on October 5th.

Tabletop and Board Game October 2021 New Releases

Game publishers are helping us gear up for some exciting tabletop gaming through the end of the year. Dune from Gale Force Nine is based on Frank Herbert’s novels, but isn’t wasting the opportunity to align with the new Dune film release. If you’re as big a fan of King of Tokyo as we are, lock in a preorder for King of Tokyo Monster Box ahead of your Halloween game night. You might as well pick up Whirling Witchcraft from Alderac while you’re buying spooky tabletop stuff. Picture Perfect is a unique new game from Arcane Wonders in which players achieve goals through the placement of people and objects in a picturesque setting. Run a wildlife park and care for all the animals in it with Savannah Park. Finally, you and your family can cooperatively step into Sherwood Forest in The Adventures of Robin Hood.

Our faves include the absolutely massive 8-foot Hot Wheels Mario Kart Rainbow Road Raceway and the Hot Wheels Mario Kart Circuit Track Set. We also can’t wait to get our hands on the new LEGO Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block (71395). Santa’s Visit (10293) and Santa’s Sleigh (40499) will both look great under your Christmas tree. The beautiful LEGO Mini Disney Castle (40478), Pickup Truck (10290), and LEGO DC Batman Batmobile Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown also drop this month.
