Summer Game Dream Deals!


by Wencke Schuncken

The summer can be a very hard season for hardcore gamers. Not only is there more sunlight which disturbs your view on the television screen or PC monitor, but also the warmth / heat can be unbearable if you’re “locked” up in a room playing excellent videogames. Also the factor of being attracted to go outside due to the nice weather for a dive in the swimming pool, to catch some sunrays for vitamin D or tanning your skin can play parts to keep a gamer away from its favorite hobby. But the main reason why the summer is the hardest season for gamers is of course that not many games are going to released in this season. Maybe the game companies should use a different marketing campaign to promote summer games and please the gamers who are spending their summer holiday playing games. To give a helping hand, I herewith provide some summer deals / game bundles ideas no gamer could refuse. And game publishers note, you are allowed to use these marketing ideas ;)

That would be an excellent combination, Rollercoaster tycoon 3: Soaked! + a free foot bath! Play the game while you whirl your feet in a nice water bath, which even gives you a massage. The gamer can concentrate on playing instead of wondering if they should go to the local swimming pool or water adventure park to get some refreshment.

In a hot climate, drinking fluids is very important. But if you’re focusing on your racing results in the Juiced racing game during the summer, you can forget about the condition of your body. Therefore a drinking hat is handy to drink and game at the same time. Put two cans on the hat, the tube in your mouth, the juiced game in your console and you don’t have to worry about keeping your body in a good condition in the warm weather!

Let’s face it, hardcore gamers don’t get outside that much. Especially when a good game has been released and you want to play it instead of going outside to catch some sunrays. But if they do go outside people around them are making comments about the geek skin the gamer has. Therefore grab this opportunity to get a free face tanner if you buy the fantastic 4 game. Game and tan your skin at the same time and the remarks while going outside are history.
