12 May 2017 11:13 GMT

Time once more to check out the best gaming deals from the past week! This time around, we’ve got a whole batch of EA PC classics (Theme Hospital et all) along with discounts on LEGO Dimensions, 4K TVs, and a really sweet Transformers vinyl record. 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 GOG sale range is one big tribute to some of EA’s best games. While the assortment does include things like Dead Space and Dragon Age, I am specifically talking about the fact that Theme Hospital, Dungeon Keeper and Bioforge are all on offer for next to nothing.

It’s May now, which means it’s time for the set of games in the Humble Monthly range to switch to a brand new set. On one hand that means last month’s games are now unavailable, on the other hand it means a brand new set of games are on offer. If you sign up to the Humble Monthly in the next few weeks for $12 / £10, you’ll get instant access to space strategy sim Stellaris as well as a stack of other games by the end of the month.

Killer Bundle 9 from Bundle Stars

Over at Bundle Stars, you can pick up a set of eight indie games in one big bundle at the cost of £3.69 / $3.99 / €4.39 for the lot. The range includes recently released point-and-click puzzler Manual Samuel among a few others.

It looks like it’s time for another round of discounts on the Steam Link and Steam Controller in both the UK and the US. Over at GAME, you can pick up the Link for £15.99 and the Controller for £27.99 while US readers can head to Amazon US and pick up the Link for $20 and the Controller for $35.

vanquish_pc (19)

Sega recently announced that Vanquish (AKA the game where you have rockets on your knees as a form of propulsion) is coming to Steam. It’s been long enough, I’m ready to jump in again. If you’re with me on that one, you can head over to Bundle Stars right now and you can get an extra 10% off when using the code VANQUISH10, which brings the price down to £13.49 / $17.99 / €17.99

Back to Humble once last time for a couple of the site’s freshest offers. Firstly, for a very limited time, you can get a copy of top-down dungeon crawler Dungeons 2 completely free. Like, seriously, just go add that to your account now.

After that, stick around and check out the massive Spring Sale that’s going on currently. Humble has split the sale up into a few different sections, separated by publisher, but there’s plenty of stragglers with big discounts as well. Here are just some of the highlights:

PS1 WipeOut Omega Collection Classic Sleeve pre-order PS4

By now, you’ve probably spotted that Sony is offering a somewhat amazing pre-order bonus sleeve with selected copies of WipEout Omega Collection on PS4. It’s the one that replicates the look of a classic PS1 game pictured above if you happen to have missed it. Currently, the cheapest way to get your hands on a copy of the game with this sleeve is over at Base, where it will cost you just shy of £25 with free shipping.

kinect windows 2

If for whatever reason, you feel like you’d quite like to own a Kinect 2.0, it’s currently cheaper than ever. GAME is selling off its preowned stock of the Xbox One Kinect sensor for £21.99 at the time of writing. It comes with a 12-month warranty, too, for what it’s worth. Stock levels depending, this is the cheapest ever way to get ahold of one of these.

LEGO City Undercover has been a bit of a quiet success on the Nintendo Switch, after spending years as a Wii U exclusive. The Switch version outsold both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game, which is encouraging for Nintendo’s new platform. The cheapest way to get a copy of this one right now is over at eBay, where you can pick one up for £30.99.

Philips Ambilight 49

This week, Argos is taking 20% off of the price of this 49-inch Philips 4K TV with HDR and Amiblight technology. That brings the price down to £399, for the record. Amibilight, if you’re not familiar, is a weird design choice that emits coloured lighting from either side of the TV in an effort to ‘immerse’ the viewer further. It’s not for everyone but hey, this is the lowest price for this set so far.

Super Mario bros Bluray

Oh boy, this thing is still around. The Super Mario Bros movie is back in stock on Blu-ray in its limited steelbook form from Zavvi for the princely sum of £9.99, if you really feel the need to own this thing. Poor Bob Hoskins never did quite live this one down.

The second LEGO game to grace our list of deals this week, LEGO Dimensions is currently on sale over at Best Buy. You can pick the game up on Xbox One and PS4 for only $34.99 while the Wii U and PS3 versions will run you $29.99 for a limited time.

LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack on PS4 for $34.99 from Best Buy

Whether you’re all but done with Breath of the Wild by now or you’re just feeling a little nostalgic, you can grab a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD on Wii U for only $15 this week at Amazon US. As if you need an excuse to own a copy of Wind Waker.

In one of the first big discounts on the system, you can pick up a PlayStation VR headset from NewEgg this week with $30 off. That brings the cost down to $369 with free shipping if you feel like giving it a go and trying out the wonderfully weird world of VR.

TRANSFORMERS: Devastation_20151021205226

Platinum’s frantic, colourful brawler entry into the Transformers gaming history books, Transformers Devastation, is available right now for just $9.99 as a Steam download. If you like Platinum’s games, Transformers or fun, this should be a no brainer.

Dishonored Fallout

While you’re over there at NewEgg, check out this rather randomly thrown together bundle of Xbox One games. For $40, you can get boxed copies of both Dishonored 2 and Fallout 4 on Xbox One. A good deal, for sure, even if it doesn’t seem to make a whole lot of sense.

Dishonored 2 and Fallout 4 on Xbox One for $39.99 from NewEgg

Hyperkin Retron HD NES

Hyperkin has made a bit of a name for itself for putting out the Retron series of boxed emulators. The company’s most recent venture is a NES-themed Retron 1 HD, capable of playing NES cartridges and displaying them at 720p via HDMI-out. The console is available in both NES colour schemes and a more subtle black edition for $39.99
