In the Katamari Damacy series, you create stars (the kind in the sky) by rolling around a sticky ball that grabs everything in its path. Sound weird? Well it is, and it’s not long before you’re grabbing pets, people and even entire buildings. Normally, this crazy action game would run you $30 if purchased directly from Nintendo; right now at Walmart it’s just $20.

One player calls it a "fun, physics-based game that has the main character rolling a katamari ball over increasingly larger objects in order to create stars. [...] The controls are intentionally slightly unwieldy, but that's just part of the fun. This game is an insane riot!"

This title will definitely bring some laughs!

The early reviews are promising. One player says it has a "great story and [is] very addictive" and adds, "this one kept me glued." It's "definitely a solid masterpiece."

Life is Strange isn’t your typical video game series. It’s a narrative adventure game that follows the turbulent story of a troubled teen, Chloe Price. It’s like a soap opera, with episodes and everything. If you like drama, this game has it in spades. Before the Storm is a prequel game to the main Life is Strange titles, taking place three years before the first game in the series. It’s good for newbies, as well as people who’d like to try out this type of game without the super-powered heroics that populate later installments.

And right now it's only $10 (from $30) — that's 66 percent off!

This mature-rated game is quite the family affair, as the Greek-deity-battling Kratos decides to leave behind the world he knows in favor of the colder and quieter north to raise his son in peace. But that tranquility doesn’t last long when he and the kid get involved in the affairs of gods and giants, forcing this former god to pick up his ax once again. The greatest-hits edition of this acclaimed title is now just $15.

Players are super enthusiastic about this one: "This game has an epic story line following Kratos and his son, which magnificently intertwined with the previous God of War games. You will appreciate the graphics and character developments. You will be like a fish on a hook and will not be able to set your remote down. Buy it. Play it. Love it. Can't wait for the next one."

Sounds like you're getting real bang for your buck!

This might sound a little crazy, but this role-playing game based on the crude cartoon from Comedy Central is actually really good. The city of South Park is fun to explore, the dialogue is razor-sharp and there are great items to discover. The combat is also awesome. This package even includes the first game, The Stick of Truth, as a bonus! We can't recommend South Park: The Fractured But Whole enough, and right now you can give it a shot for only $15.

Shoppers agree, with one saying "If you like the show, you'll love the game. All the characters from the show coming together for a hilarious game that's just a good time." But even if you aren't the biggest fan, The Fractured But Whole also "challenges your problem solving and analyzing skills," and "it's funny and there's so much to do!" And you don't have to wait for the next season to enjoy this adventure!

Have you ever wished you could take a lightsaber into your own hands, take down stormtroopers and explore the galaxy? Fallen Order is a game that puts you into the boots of Cal Kestis, a survivor of the Jedi massacre that occurred in Revenge of the Jedi. Even if you’re not that familiar with Star Wars lore, this game is a great role-playing adventure with plenty of action and spectacular graphics.

This was one of the best games of 2019, and right now it's just $17, where players call it a "fantastic Star Wars game," one where the main character has a lot of "depth" and the graphics are "visually amazing." One gamer says, "The combat is enthralling (and low key gives me a power trip), the visual direction is incredible, working with the engaging characters and writing to evoke the feel of the movies incredibly well, and the game offers a new perspective that adds depth to a very interesting time in the Star Wars timeline. I've loved every minute of playing!"
