Come one, come all, for yet another batch of this week’s best gaming deals from around the weirdest and wildest parts 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

It’s time for another sale over at the Humble Store! This time, it’s the ever-so-timely Spring Sale that is the reason for thousands of discounts. This one is due to end on May 24th, so you have a little bit of time to peruse at your leisure. You’ll find everything from No Man’s Sky to Dark Souls 3 amongst the range.

On top of all the sale madness, for a very limited time, you can pick up a copy of The Flame In The Flood absolutely free.

This month’s Humble Monthly offering is arguably one of the bigger ones. Destiny 2 is up for grabs, along with a stack of other games once the month finishes. All of that will cost you £10 / $12 if you feel like signing up. You’re free to cancel after this one month too, if you just wanted a really cheap copy of Destiny 2 and some extra games on top.

Just writing about this collection of Capcom’s run of 2D Disney games from the 90s has immediately lodged the Ducktales theme song in my head, where it will likely remain for at least a month. With that in mind, the Disney Afternoon Collection is currently discounted to $8 on Xbox One and is absolutely worth that price for the Ducktales game alone.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s Xbox One version is seeing a slight discount over at Amazon right now, where you can pick up a copy of the game for $44.99.

While the actual remake of Final Fantasy 7 remains an uncomfortably unknown quantity, there is certainly no shortage of ways with which you can play the original version. Over on the iOS App Store, you can pick up the version for Apple devices for $10.99 this week.

Now that, ever so gradually, graphics cards are not only returning to stock but also returning to somewhat sensible prices, it’s nice to see that you can get a $30 rebate on this MSI GeForce 1080 card from NewEgg as well as a $20 Steam voucher for your troubles.
