If it's as ludicrously cold where you are as it is where we are, you should consider buying Far Cry 3 on Amazon today for $34.99. While it's not that Caribbean vacation you've been saving for, the tropical island in Ubisoft's open-shooter sure looks warm, and maybe that virtual warmth will osmose through the screen and into your near-frozen frame.

That Far Cry 3 price is the deal of the day in Amazon's all-day, all-video-games Gold Box event. The first Lightning deal is already up, knocking the Plantronics Gamecom X95 wireless headset down to $49.99. The full list of upcoming deals teases discounts on the way for NHL 13, Hitman: Absolution, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and NBA Baller Beats. Well, the NBA Baller Beats deal isn't so much teased as it just says the game's name. It's just too cold to come up with a riddle for everything, you know.
