This week’s best gaming deals: Xbox One X bundles, Dark Souls Remastered, Nier Automata, and more

16 February 2018 10:50 GMT

We’re back for another week’s worth of the best gaming deals in town. This time around, we’re covering everything from PC digital downloads to CPU coolers to that sweet looking Sea of Thieves Xbox One controller.

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

Dead Space, for those who have never played it, is probably what you’d get if you asked John Carpenter to make a Resident Evil game. It’s a bit of a horror game classic and it’s absolutely free right now on PC. Get it while you can.

The banner for GOG’s Chinese New Year sale features a cartoon Corgi and that’s only the first reason to check out the sale range. The site also features hourly flash deals which rotate in and out and over 500 games with up to 90% off. This one is set to finish on February 20th.

Now that the Valentine Sale at Humble has finished up, what better thing to replace it than the Fighter Sale, I mean that just makes sense. Over at Humble right now, you can pick up a batch of brawlers with up to 85% off, including Nidhogg for £2.44, Injustice 2 for £27.99, Absolver for £11.49, Lethal League for £2.99 and Dave Lang’s Divekick for £1.59.

Meanwhile, at Fanatical, you can find the ‘Lunar New Year’ sale, which features various titles with decent discounts. On top of the existing discounts, you can take an extra 8% off most titles by entering the code LUNAR8 at checkout.

GamersGate is celebrating its 13th anniversary right now and is celebrating with a blowout sale, featuring a ton of digital downloads with various price cuts. This also means that GamersGate began life on the internet in 2005, mere months after Half Life 2 was released. I’ll just leave you with that thought.

This month, signing up for a Humble Monthly subscription will get you instant access to a copy of Dark Souls 3 as well as the Ashes of Ariandel DLC pack, along with a stack of other games once the month finishes out, all of which will cost you $12 / £10.

One of the better offers out there for an Xbox One X in the UK is over at Smyths, where for £430, you can pick up the console along with a copy of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

There’s a big range of discounts available on everything from DualShock 4 controllers to games to consoles themselves, all over at ShopTo’s current ‘Half Term Sale’, which also apparently means it’s half-term somewhere. Still.

Dark Souls Remastered arrives on Nintendo Switch in May but the current cheapest way to secure yourself a copy of this one is over at Base, where it’ll cost you just shy of £30.

Nintendo Switch consoles don’t tend to get discounted all too much but if you’re in the market for one, Tesco’s official eBay outlet will currently sell you one for £255. Alternatively, you can go for a refurbished version for £239.

There’s a double discount up for grabs over at the HP Store, where the already-discounted HP Spectre x360 laptop/tablet hybrid is available for £1399. Using code 8LAPTOP at checkout will take an extra chunk of cash off the price and bring the cost down to £1287.

The eye-catching Sea of Thieves edition Xbox One S controller is a bit of a pricey fella, with an RRP of £64.99. If you’re looking to pick up one of these pads, your best bet at the moment is to put a pre-order down at Argos, where it’s currently available for £55.

If Minecraft and gaudy green colour schemes are your jam, you’re going to want to jump on this Xbox One S 1TB Limited Minecraft console which comes with a free second Creeper themed controller for £249.99 at Argos this week.

Over the past few weeks, the price of this Philips 50-inch 4K TV has slipped further and further. Currently, it’s at its lowest ever price of £419, if you fancied it. This is one of the TVs with Philips’ weird Ambilight tech that projects mood lighting in the space behind the TV, too.

Building a PC at this point in time seems like financial suicide but at the very least, if you’ve gotten all that graphics card stuff out of the way already, you can save some cash on a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler, which is down to £22 at the moment.

For a limited time, if you go through TopCashback before spending £15 at a number of games retailers online, you can get yourself £15 back after your stuff gets sent out. Which works out nicely, given that the site is called TopCashback and all.

US Deals

If you’ve got $500 burning a hole in your pocket, bank account or both, you can throw it directly at an Xbox One X bundle from Walmart this week and get yourself a nice deal. Specifically, $499 will get you an Xbox One X with Destiny 2, Star Wars Battlefront 2 and GTA 5.

Avid readers of this little deals roundup section may remember the Amazon Echo / Destiny 2 partnership that gave birth to this limited edition Destiny 2 Ghost with Alexa functionality, which can interact with your Destiny 2 game as well. This thing began life at $90 but is currently available for $50.

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve recommended Nier Automata right now but consider this yet another one of those times. If Yoko Taro’s semi-distilled insanity in video game form sounds like your kind of thing, it’s currently $30 at GameStop.

If you’re not already completely done with the whole ‘Funko Pop’ movement by now, you may enjoy this pair of NES-styled horror icons. Both Jason from the Friday the 13th NES game and Freddy him his own NES entry are modelled after their video game versions, complete with a limited colour palette. You can get the duo for $12.

Those of you out there who happen to be fans of Howard Shore’s score for The Fellowship of the Ring as well as collecting vinyl – yes, that very specific cross-section of you – can start saving your pennies for this big, beautiful, five-LP vinyl box set of the entire score to the first Lord of the Rings film, up for pre-order now.
