By Jamie Wallace, Friday, 2 March 2018 13:33 GMT

Welcome to yet another week’s worth of the best gaming deals found on our journeys across the vast wastelands of the internet.

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

Humble’s latest bundle, the ‘Brawler’ bundle, gathers up a bunch of the very best of outlandishly weird, mostly anime-themed fighting games and brings them to you at a bargain price. Here’s what the whole bundle is like.

Green Man Gaming is launching its brand new ‘March Madness’ sale. Perhaps not the most original title for a sale in March, but hey, you can’t win ‘em all. The sale features new deals every 24 hours so it’s worth checking back repeatedly.

Head to Fanatical at the moment and you can take advantage of the site’s latest Nemesis Bundle. The sixth, in fact, which you can tell from the title – Nemesis Bundle 6. What a world. Anyway, the first tier gets you games like Kathy Rain and Super Mega Baseball and the more you pay, the more games you’ll be getting.

Back to Humble one more time now, as the site is offered up some limited time sale ranges on games from Activision and Sega. Those two ranges feature everything from Alien Isolation with 75% off to Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines for £3.74. There’s a lot to comb through, so it’s worth taking a look.

Bayonetta made her moderately insane return this past week with a double bill of a debut on the Nintendo Switch. The boxed copy of Bayonetta 2 comes with a download of the original game as well, and if you’d like to pick up a copy, it’s currently just shy of £40 at SimplyGames.

Bayonetta 2 (with Bayonetta) for Nintendo switch for £39.85 from SimplyGames

Let’s be kind and say that Metal Gear Survive, so far, has failed to set the world alight with the hope of the Metal Gear franchise surviving any more post-Kojima entries. That said, predictably enough, it’s discounted to £20 over at Base on consoles.

Metal Gear Survive on PS4 for £19.99 from Base
Metal Gear Survive on Xbox One for £19.99 from Base

Need amiibo? I know a guy. Just head to Argos and you can pick up a range of selected amiibo figures from as little as £2.99. The majority of the cheap ones will cost you £5 and include Shovel Knight, which should be enough to make you excited, really.

The SteelSeries Arctis 3 gaming headset is one of the better reviewed headsets out there these days and right now, Box will sell you one of these in a variety of colours, including the limited edition red, for £50.

Over at GAME, you can currently pick up a bit of a bundle on a PSVR. Right now, £300 will get you a PlayStation VR Starter Pack – headset, camera and PSVR Worlds – along with copies of Resident Evil 7 and Starblood Arena as well as a two-month NOW TV pass.

Nioh, Dark Souls’ Eastern-themed cousin, is discounted down to $30 right now, in its ‘Complete Edition’ form. This game opens with you escaping the Tower of London with a sword, so that should tell you what you need to know about whether to buy or not.

Nioh Complete Edition on PS4 for $29.99 from Amazon US

Need some extra storage space for you Nintendo Switch? How about far too much storage – like these SanDisk Ultra Micro SDXC cards from Amazon, which are down to $40 for a 128GB model or $63 for a 200GB model.

Elsewhere on Amazon, you can pick up Ubisoft’s latest murderfest, this time with a distinctly deserty vibe, Assassin’s Creed Origins on either PS4 or Xbox One for just under $30.

Assassin’s Creed Origins on PS4 for $29.99 from Amazon US
Assassin’s Creed Origins on Xbox One for $29.99 from Amazon US

Last but not least, Horizon Zero Dawn’s Complete Edition – a game which should probably be demoed in electronics stores for how good it can make HDR and 4K look – is discounted to $35 at the moment. If you’re a PS4 or PS4 Pro owner, you probably need this one.

Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition on PS4 for $34.99 from Amazon US
