This week’s best game deals: Spelunky, GeForce 1060, Stellaris and more

By Jamie Wallace, Friday, 12 August 2016 10:21 GMT

One more week has gone by so it’s time to see what you can save some cash on.

Hello there! While most of you have been out all week, exploring the various galaxies you can come across, I’ve been over at Jelly Deals finding as many good deals and cheap games as I can. I’m here again this week to bring a bunch of them directly to your face. If you happen to buy something from this list, there’s a chance VG247 will see a tiny financial kick-back from each sale, so you’ll end up helping us stay employed too. If you hate everything on this list, that’s okay too.

As always, we do our best to make sure these deals are all active and in stock at the time of posting, but internet deals will be internet deals, and they can disappear without warning when they want to. That means that depending on when you click these links, there’s a chance some of these deals will be gone or prices may have changed. Hopefully not, but you never know. Anyway, let’s get on with this week’s batch of deals, starting with the US Deals. If you’re reading from the UK, skip down the page about halfway.

US Deals

Mega Man Coasters

Okay, let’s get through the most important deal first. This set of Mega Man coasters is currently 50% off, bringing the price down to $14.99. Frankly, I’m not sure who was buying it when it was a full $30, but fifteen bucks is a lot more agreeable. These coasters are replicas of the pixel-art boss portraits from Mega Man 2 and come in a little Energy Tank tin too. It might just be me, but there’s something about them that ticks a real old-school nerd check box in my head.

GeForce 1060

If you didn’t already blow your budget buying multiple sets of those Mega Man coasters, you may want to check out this GeForce 1060, that’ll cost you $240 overall. This mini-profile card is currently being offered up on NewEgg for $249.99, but you can get a discount on that if you check out with a VISA and use the code VCOGOLD16 on checkout. Not a bad price for such a newly released card.

RADEON 490

Alternatively, a Radeon card might be more your speed. NewEgg is also offering up this MSI Radeon R9 390 8GB graphics card for $275, though by jumping through a few hoops, this card will only cost you $240. Firstly, as above, checkout using a VISA and enter the code VCOGOLD16 at checkout, this will knock $15 off the price right away. After that, you can grab a $20 rebate from purchasing the card and get your remaining cash back.

gravity_rush_remaster

Back to consoles now with this deal on Gravity Rush Remastered. You may have missed the original release of Gravity Rush, given that it was a Vita exclusive. The remastered PS4 version takes everything good about the original release and gives it a nice HD once-over. Amazon is currently selling this one at just $21.01, so it’s a bit of a bargain.

xbox one s new wireless controller

The new-style Xbox One controller features some all-around improvements, including better grip where your palms hold the pad and the addition of Bluetooth connectivity. Whether you’re picking one up as second-player Xbox controller or as a new pad for your PC, the cheapest way to get one of these right now is to head over to NewEgg and enter the code EMCEMFE28 during checkout. That’ll bring the price down to a total of $45.

UK Deals

stellaris

The other trade-based space exploration game that released this year, Stellaris, is a wonderfully tactical strategy game that caused a bit of a wave in the Steam community upon its release. This one has remained fairly popular and as such, has held onto its £35 price point quite well. However, over at Zavvi, you can currently pick up a boxed version of the game for £24.99, which is currently the cheapest way to get a copy. The code in the box will redeem through Steam anyway, so you’re all set.

resident evil 4 ps4 xbox one

The HD remastered version of one of the most influential video games of the last fifteen years is available to buy on PC for £5.99, currently. Whether you’re a newcomer to the Resi series or you’re a veteran who feels the need to dig back in and play through this classic one more time, Resident Evil 4 HD at under half price is hard not to recommend.

persona_5 (2)

Persona 5 finally has a release date, and while we wait for February 14th, 2016 to arrive, some of you may have taken an interest in the mildly-ridiculous ‘Take Your Heart’ Premium Edition of the game that was announced. Currently, the cheapest way to get your hands on this one is to head over to Zavvi and pre-order using a brand new account. Entering the code “WELCOME” upon checkout will get you the new customer discount and secure your pre-order at the price of £67.49.

Slain Hell

Indie PC hack and slasher Slain may have had what we will gently refer to as a ‘troubled launch’ back in March, but the developers responded to the harsh criticism by taking a second look at the game themselves. After a few months of fixes, improvements and changes, Slain: Back From Hell was released on Steam, a new and improved version of the game that received a much more favourable reception. Green Man Gaming have slashed the price of this one down to £5.57 currently.

for_honor_header

For Honor may not actually be due out until February next year (fingers crossed), but that hasn’t stopped GamesPlanet from offering up a bit of a discount. At the moment, you can pre-order a copy of the Deluxe Edition for the same price as the Standard Edition would normally cost you – £31.99. Keep in mind that this will be a Uplay version of the game, so do with that what you will.

halo_5_limited_edition_xbox_one (2)

If the smaller, whiter Xbox One S just doesn’t do it for you (or it’s completely sold out everywhere you check), then perhaps this Halo 5 Limited Edition Xbox One will. For £239.97, you’ll get the limited edition Halo 5 Guardians console in all of its blue/grey/darker grey glory, as well as a digital copy of the game. More importantly, you’ll also be getting a 1TB hard drive for that price, making this one of the cheaper ways to pick up a 1TB Xbox One at present.

20130828_spelunky

If somehow, you don’t already own a copy of Spelunky for PC, you should fix that right now. Fortunately, while a copy of the game on Steam itself may currently have a price tag of £10.99, GOG.com are offering the game up for just £2.29 (or $2.99 if you’re in The New World.) That’s a DRM-free copy of the game too, as you would expect from GOG. Since Spelunky is easily worth the full price, this one is just a bit of a steal.
