This week’s best gaming deals: Nintendo Labo, Monster Hunter World, Yakuza 6, and more

19 January 2018 11:20 GMT

One more week, one more set of the best gaming weeks from around the world wide web. There’s everything from the Nintendo Labo madness to some fine PC digital discounts to check out, so let’s get started.

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

carmageddon free

GOG has not only gone and added the last two parts of the Carmageddon series to its vault – Carmageddon TDR 2000 and Carmageddon: Max Damage – but the former is available completely free for a limited time. Snap it up while you can, and you can still pick up the remaining games in the series with 75% discounts each.
