Pre-ordering games can be hit or miss depending on what’s included. You may or may not find some great freebies included alongside the latest game deals. Although, it’s always best to see physical items as part of the package, because then you get your hands on something tangible, as opposed to digital items or in-game skins.

That’s precisely what you get with a pre-order of the Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl double pack for Nintendo Switch. Not only does the $120 set include both games, but also an exclusive pen collection featuring the three partner Pokemon — Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup. They’re all themed appropriately and look great! A double pack pre-order also includes free delivery and will arrive on or around release day. You have from September 9 up until September 15 to score the pre-order bonus, so get in there if you want them!

If you didn’t already know, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are reimagined versions of the original Pokemon Diamond and Pearl games, only this time they’re playable on Nintendo Switch! The two separate but related games take place in the Sinnoh region, with players setting off to become the Champion of the local Pokemon League. You’ll have the option to choose one of the three starter Pokemon, including Turtwig, Chimchar, or Piplup. They’re all super adorable!

Exclusive Pokemon for each title also exist. Pokemon Brilliant Diamond players will encounter the Legendary Pokemon Dialga, while Shining Pearl players will encounter Palkia. The double pack includes both games in one set, so you don’t have to chase down the copies. However, they are available separately if you don’t want them both or if you want a cheaper option!

From now until September 15, when you pre-order the Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl double pack from Walmart you’ll get an exclusive pen set. There are three pens, one for each of the starter Pokemon. You can display them proudly in your game room, by your console, or just use them like regular pens — whatever floats your ink! The pre-order is available for $120 with free delivery and arrival on or close to the release date. Act soon if you want the exclusive pens!

Oculus Quest 2 refresh has more storage, costs the same
Meta Quest 2 makes virtual reality affordable

When the Oculus Quest 2 first arrived, it was equipped with 64GB of storage. These days, that's not nearly enough room to hold multiple games, which is a shame because it's one of the best standalone VR headsets out there. There are some awesome Oculus Rift games to play on the system too. Luckily, the Oculus crew decided on a refresh that will offer double the storage.

The Oculus Quest 2, available from August 24, now includes 128GB of storage offering more room for games and content, and "more to explore." Want to know the best part? The price hasn't changed at all, which is still $299. You can also opt for a 256GB model for $399. Both include free shipping when purchased from Walmart. You can head right over to Walmart's website to order now, or read more below!

far cry 6 rainbow six quarantine delayed until april 2021 farcry6

It's no secret that pre-orders often include various incentives, which usually come in the form of digital items and in-game content. That said, most of the latest video game deals, offer great prices but nothing more. There are some great general gaming deals though, that may or may not toss in a little extra, including PC mice, console bundles, games, and beyond.

We'd like to highlight something a little more, special, however. Right now, up until October 6, you can pre-order Far Cry 6 to receive a free gift. This is no in-game item or flashy weapon skin. It's a double-sided 24-inch by 14.5-inch cloth banner, adorned with the Discover Yara billboard from the Ministerio de Turismo. It's themed after the latest game in the series and it looks sick!
