This isn’t new information but more of a PSA that you only have one more day to preorder the Galaxy S21, which will get you a few perks you wouldn’t get otherwise. Every major US carrier and most retailers are accepting preorders for the S21, S21 Plus, and the high-end S21 Ultra through Thursday, January 28th. No matter where you buy it, you’ll get up to $200 in Samsung credit to pick up a few accessories on its site, along with a complimentary Samsung SmartTag to help keep track of your stuff.

Nintendo Switch owners who haven’t had the chance to play through the glorious BioShock trilogy can do so for a really reasonable price from several retailers. Usually $50 for BioShock, its sequel BioShock 2, and the series finale BioShock Infinite, it’s just $20 for the physical version. This is well worth playing, especially since you can take it on the go.


BioShock: The Collection is a must-play experience for Nintendo Switch owners. It contains all three BioShock titles, and for the first time, you can play these classic FPS games on the go. This compilation includes the three main titles in the franchise, as well as all of the associated DLC.

This isn’t tech, but The Verge’s Sean Hollister (a Nerf connoisseur) thinks the Nerf Rival Artemis XVII-3000 is an excellent blaster, so this deal at Walmart popped out to him. Originally priced at $70, it’s just $30 right now on Walmart’s site. It includes 30 rounds, so you’ll probably need to buy more if you want to do some prolonged target practice.
