This week’s best game deals: No Man’s Sky, Resident Evil 7, Mother Russia Bleeds and more

10 March 2017 10:31 GMT

This week was a big one in terms of discounts on PC download games, among many other things. It seems the Spring of video game releases has truly sprung now and we’re a matter of weeks away from a game like Mass Effect Andromeda somehow, though, so there’s plenty still to come. Right now, though, there’s another week’s worth of deals to check out. Let’s begin.

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

spring sale gog

As you may have spotted during the week, is having itself one giant Spring Sale right now. A massive amount of games are featured, with up to 90% off some genuinely fantastic titles. If the likes of SOMA for £8.09 / $9.99, Spelunky for £1.79 / $2.24, Hotline Miami 2 for £2.99 / $3.69 don’t do it for you, then just head over to the site itself and check out the full range. There’s almost definitely something here for everyone and if not, there’s a lovely bear to look at on the home page. If you don’t care for bears, here are some highlights.’s Spring Sale – Up to 90% off


The folks over at Humble have a nice thing going on – a monthly subscription service that’ll send you a pack of game keys each month for the one set price of £10 / $12 a month. Over the past two months, these bundles have included XCOM 2 and Total War Warhammer, so it’s clear that Humble isn’t messing around.

This month, the key game on offer is Jonathan Blow’s pretty puzzler The Witness. You’ll get that instantly when you sign up for the month, along with a stack of other games by the end of the month. The Humble people say that you can cancel a subscription at any point too, which is nice.

Sony is doing its own version of the big blowout sale at the moment, this time exclusively for PlayStation Plus members. If you happen to be one of those people, you can grab a bunch of PS4 games with some pretty superb price reductions. I’ll take this opportunity to point out that Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is only £4.49 and you should own that. Prices here are in British pounds but your local currency should roughly match up where applicable.

Not to be left out of the discounted download games party, there are a couple of noteworthy offers going on over at Xbox Live, that is, as long as you’re an Xbox Live Gold member. If you are, you can grab a copy of Mega Man Legacy Collection for £4.80 / $6, Rise of the Tomb Raider for £25 / $20 (nope, no idea what’s going with that price difference) or a copy of The Witcher 3 Game of the Year Edition for £17.40 / $25 for a limited time. There’s even the oft-forgotten reboot of Strider for £3 / $3.75 if you fancy it.

cluster tuck

Clustertruck, if you weren’t convinced by the name alone, is a frenetic, chaotic, madness-inducing platformer in which you, as a player, are stood atop a moving truck and have to navigate your way across many other moving trucks. Sometimes there are other objects, often it gets super weird. In short, it’s insane and fantastic and it’s only £4.39 / $5.99 for a limited time if any of that sounds good to you.

While you’re over there at Humble, you can spend some time checking out the current Devolver Digital sale the site is hosting. A whole bunch of Devolver’s greatest and strangest games are on offer for a limited time (this sale ends in a matter of hours) and it’s definitely worth a look.

UK Deals

If you’re in need of a second controller for your PS4 or you fancy replacing the one you threw against the wall while playing Dark Souls 3, you can head over to ShopTo at the moment and pick up one of the new versions in black, blue or red for £34.85. To get that price, you’ll need to enter the code DUALSHOCK5 during checkout but after that, you’re good to go.

pro evo

While Pro Evo used to be king during the PS2 days of gaming, FIFA seems to have eclipsed Konami’s annual football offering. Still, PES (as the cool kids call it) has its fans still and if you happen to be one, you can grab a copy of the latest game for £24 at the moment from Amazon UK.

Just in time for the second massive game-changing patch in the form of the Pathfinder update, No Man’s Sky is down to the impulse-buy level price point of £14 on PS4 from Amazon UK. However you feel about this one, it’s quite a different game now than it was at launch but whether or not you feel like giving this a shot now is your call.

US Deals

titanfall_2_live_fire (3)

The best example of a boy and his giant robot friend since The Iron Giant, Titanfall 2 is down to only $24 as an Xbox One download from Amazon US right now. That’s an insanely low price for this one and it really, really deserves to be played. Get it bought.

Resident Evil 7 kicked the year off nicely in terms of games that were pleasantly surprising and generally pretty great. If you happened to wait just over a month before forking out full price for this one, you’re in luck – the game is down to $39.99 on Xbox One and PS4 over at Amazon US.

oculus_rift_consumer (6)

So VR is a thing now. There’s multiple headsets on the market and freely available to buy and immerse yourself in. The Oculus Rift, as you may have heard, recently saw its price cut by $100 and its Touch controllers were similarly discounted. You can grab either of these from Best Buy at the moment for their new, reduced prices.

Oculus Touch for $99.99 from Best Buy

Snorlax Pillow

Yeah, okay, this one isn’t a ‘deal’ per se but just look at this thing. This is a 4-foot tall, 2-foot wide Snorlax beanbag chair that’s basically just one big hug. Sure, it’s a bit expensive but can you really put a price on the joy you’ll get from curling up and taking a nap next to a giant Snorlax? Yes, in fact, you can – that price is $150.
