It’s the weekend, which of course means many things – a chance to bask in the sun and/or mourn the loss of it, a little bit of extra time to catch up on games, books or that Westworld finale and, most importantly, a brand new roundup of the very best deals from the week. That last one is the very article you’re reading, so let’s cut to the chase and check out some of the fun things you can treat yourself to this week.
As a heads up, don’t forget that Amazon Prime Day 2018 is creeping ever closer and we’ve got our own guide to finding the best deals and generally surviving the faux-holiday itself, which we’ll be keeping updated all the way through.
As usual, we’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. Let’s get started.
UK & US Deals
This week’s batch of GOG Weekly sales features up to 90 per cent off a whole range of classic titles, as well as some newer ones. Deadly Premonition Director’s Cut is in here for less than the price of a coffee, too, if you want to experience the best of what video games have to offer.
Remember when PUBG seemed like the king of all video games? While it may have been usurped by a more colourful competitor, PUBG is still making moves to expand and evolve, recently adding a new, third map to the mix. Use the code 43OFFPUBG at checkout to get a PC copy of the game for, appropriately, 43 per cent off.
Batman, Mad Max, Mortal Kombat, Hitman and Lego are all involved in this week’s Warner Bros Games sale over at Fanatical. Use the code RED10 to get an extra 10 per cent off the already-discounted titles, too.
Of course, the main event of a Konami sale over at the Humble Store is going to be the half-price copy of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Of course it is. That said, you probably owe it to yourself to try out Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance while it’s 75 per cent off. And boy, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and its sequel are a strange couple of games – those are 80 per cent off each.
This month, signing up for a Humble Monthly account will get you instant access to three titles – Hearts of Iron 4, Blackwake and Portal Knights, alongside a stack of additional games at the end of the month.
The latest Tekken game was a bit of a surprise when it arrived. A huge return to form and a genuinely exhilarating fighting game with an absolutely insane storyline. It’s down to £17.99 on PS4 at the moment, too.
This set of five Nintendo figurines is £5.99 and that’s lovely, but the important part of this whole thing is that Shy Guy is one of those five figures. Look at his little mask.
Oh boy, Mighty No. 9. The game, from Keiji Inafune, a name synonymous with the classic Mega Man games of old, is a nostalgia-laden not-quite-Mega-Man-successor that – to put it kindly – failed to set the world on fire upon release. If you’ve been even somewhat curious about this one, you can pick up a copy on PS4 or Xbox One for a dirt cheap price right now.
4K blu-rays are lovely and all, but they’re still a new enough bit of tech that they’re normally too pricey to be realistic. Thankfully, you can pick up two UHD Blu-rays for £30 right now via The Entertainment Store’s eBay outlet.
Over at Go2Games this week, you can find one of the cheaper offers for an Xbox One X console to date. £399.99 will get you the console, or you can add £10 and add a copy of Forza 7 to the bundle, which is nice.
If you’re somehow getting by with using the same old set of Dell-branded speakers or something equally ancient rattling out music from your PC, you might want to grab this set of Logitech speakers while they are discounted to £85.
Marshall, the company behind all those iconic guitar monitors, cabinets and speakers also apparently makes headphones. Not only that, but the company is discounting this set of Major 2 headphones from £79 to £45 for a limited time.
Hey, look at that – Nintendo’s promise that there would be more Nintendo Classic Edition stock headed onto store shelves is a real, live thing. ThinkGeek can finally now sell you one of these teeny tiny consoles for $60.
Edith Finch is one of the best narrative adventures of 2017, at least in my own opinion, and you can grab yourself a Steam copy of it right now on Amazon US for under $10, which you probably should.
FrostPunk – a grim, thought-provoking and weirdly addictive game from the creators of This War of Mine – is available in its fancy, boxed, Victorian Edition at Amazon right now for $24, which is less than the game costs on Steam normally. Incidentally, you’ll get a Steam key with this edition, too.
If you’re unfortunate enough not to have had the chance to play Yakuza 0 and all of its insanity by now, you can go ahead and grab a PS4 copy of the game for just under $20 over at GameStop.
Now that Final Fantasy 15 is not only on PC but also supports mods, there’s presumably never been a better time to get into JRPGs – especially when you can change the character models of you and your buddies into Battletoads, Power Rangers or Donald Duck in a mech suit. You can pick up a Steam key for the game for $25 at Amazon this week.
With that, we’re done for another week. Keep in mind that deals, prices and availability can change at the drop of a hat, so apologies if you miss out on something you wanted. I’ll be over at Jelly Deals scouring the world wide web for more deals. Feel free to visit, or follow us on Twitter and give us a like on Facebook.
