By Jamie Wallace, Friday, 27 April 2018 11:59 GMT

Another week, another batch of the internet’s best gaming deals to check out. Let’s take a look at what your money can get you right now.

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

Did you know that Alien day was this week? Me neither. Nevertheless, Humble is celebrating the occasion with a sale on a whole batch of games based on the Alien franchise. Most notably, of course, is Alien Isolation, which is a truly excellent game in my opinion. But hey, Colonial Marines is also there, if you like.

Humble’s latest bundle is a PlayStation-centric one, and as such, all of these codes will require you to have a US or Canadian PSN account on your system with which to redeem them. Once they’re redeemed and downloaded, though, you can play them on your UK account.

The bundle itself though offers up a batch of titles from both Capcom and Sega. Specifically these ones:

Pay what you want
Dead Rising (PS4)
Dustforce (Vita)
Crazy Taxi (PS3)
Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz (Vita)

Pay more than the average
Resident Evil HD Remaster (PS4)
Mega Man Legacy Collection (PS4)
Resident Evil Code Veronica X (PS4)
Sonic Generations (PS3)
Binary Domain (PS3)
Alien Isolation (PS4)

Pay $15 (£10.74) or more
Dead Rising 2 (PS4)
Valkyria Chronicles Remastered (PS4)

Pay what you want for the Humble Capcom x Sega PlayStation Bundle

Green Man Gaming’s Spring Sale is live now, featuring a whole batch of PC discounts on all sorts of titles, both indie and triple A. Using the code GMG22 on most of these titles will get you an extra 22% off your purchase of choice, too.

A new month means a new set of Humble Monthly offerings. This time around, dropping $12 / £10 to sign up for a subscription will get you copies of Kerbal Space Program, Dead Rising 4 and Ruiner, along with a bunch of other games when the month finishes.

UK Deals

Feeling left out with all of this God of War chatter and associated mania? You can pick up a PS4 Pro console along with a copy of the game for no extra cost right now, at Amazon. That bundle will get you a glacier white version of the console and run you £349.99.

While you’re there buying a shiny new PS4, you can also pick up 15 months of PlayStation Plus for the price of 12 right now, either directly through the PS4 console itself of this handy Amazon link right below.

For £330, TheGameCollection will sell you a Nintendo Switch Neon console along with copies of Doom, Skyrim and Rocket League. That is, to say the least, a very decent starting pack of games to go along with your brand new Switch.

Nintendo Switch with Doom, Skyrim and Rocket League for £329.95 from TheGameCollection

One of the rarer sightings of graphics cards not only being in stock but also not vastly above their own RRPs, this Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 is available to order for £509.99 while stock lasts.

If you do happen to go down the ‘building a new PC route’ like I am currently trying to talk myself out of doing, this super powerful EVGA 1000W power supply is down to £88.64 right now, rather than its usual £123.

EVGA 1000W 80+ Gold, semi-modular PSU for £88.64 from Amazon UK

Picking up a brand new Xbox One wireless controller (the new kind that are all Bluetooth enabled) right now will also get you copies of Remedy’s latest pair of games, Quantum Break and a download of Alan Wake. All of that will cost you £41.

If you’ve been looking to pick up an Xbox One X console lately, you can grab a couple of very decent deals this week and get a game along with your new console for your troubles. Firstly, ShopTo is offering up an Xbox One X with Gears of War Ultimate Edition for just shy of £400.

If that’s not your kind of thing, you can pick up an Xbox One X with a digital download of Far Cry 5 for £420, instead.

Those on the lookout for a decent gaming laptop at a price that won’t necessarily render you unable to pay rent for the foreseeable few months can take a look at this ASUS 15.6-inch gaming laptop. It’s loaded with an i5-7300HQ CPU, 8GB and a GTX GeForce 1060, all for £799.99. You’ll also get a batch of Intel’s own gaming downloads emailed to you after you buy, which is a nice bonus.

I’ve lost count of how many times Nier Automata has made its way into one of these deals roundups through one means or another. Either way, if you’ve yet to pick up a copy, it’s down to £18.85 on PS4 over at ShopTo and that’s a pretty good price.

Nier Automata on PS4 for £18.85 from ShopTo

Full disclosure: I’ve not actually seen Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation at this point in time, so I can’t vouch as to the quality of the movie itself. What I can vouch for is the fact that the movie is currently available to buy on Blu-ray for only £3, which seems like a criminally cheap price for any Blu-ray. Plus, Ghost Protocol was alright, right?

US Deals

In what might be the cheapest way to currently get a PSVR headset (V2), using the code EMCPTRU35 at checkout over at NewEgg will allow you to pick up this PlayStation VR headset bundle that includes a PS camera and a copy of Doom VFR, all for $187.49 for a limited time.

Over at GameStop currently, you’ll find a big range of board games, card games and trading card games, all with up to 20% off. Among the range, you’ll be able to find various editions of Monopoly, Clue and even the Dark Souls board game for a little less than usual. Worth noting there is also a Dragon Ball Z Edition of Monopoly which is mondo cool, to say the least.

20% off Board and Card games from GameStop

Far Cry 5’s particular brand of USA-centric murdering and animal befriending can be yours for a little bit less than usual over at Amazon US this week, where a console copy of the game will run you $50 rather than the usual $60.

Far Cry 5 on PS4 for $49.99 from Amazon US
Far Cry 5 on Xbox One for $49.99 from Amazon US

Boy, has God of War’s launch been a bit of a runaway success. If you, like myself, are currently carving your own path through that game, several axe-throws at a time, you may also be interested to know that the official Art of God of War collection is up on Amazon US for $24 right now.

The Art of God of War for $23.99 from Amazon US

Arguably one of the best things about Nier Automata (and there were many great things about it) was the soundtrack. That has proved popular enough of a sentiment that you can now get yourself a digital download of the piano arrangements of that very soundtrack, all for $23 at Amazon.

Nier: Automata Piano Collections for $22.99 from Amazon US
