One more week's worth of the best gaming deals, prices and just generally awesome stuff. Come and see what we found.
Wow, October is flying by fast, isn’t it? Whether you’re slugging your way through Mafia 3 right now or roadie-running all the way through Gears of War 4, we’re right in the part of the year where you remember that you probably have less time than you thought you did to play video games. Nonetheless, we’ve got another week’s worth of the best gaming and tech deals for you to reconsider your own personal time management for. Let’s take a look.
First, we’ve got some deals that should work in the UK as well as the US (and probably many other places), then we’ll check out the US’s best before finishing off with some UK offers.
UK & US Deals
There’s a whole bunch of horror (or just plain twisted) games up for grabs over at Bundle Stars at the moment. Up to fifteen of them, in fact, depending on how much you feel like paying. The bare minimum of £1.49 will get you six games (including Kholat and Lucius 2), while £4.89 adds eight more (including Albino Lullaby) and the final tier of £6.39 unlocks a copy of The Park on top of all of the others.
Speaking of Bundle Stars, for the rest of today, you can grab a copy of Chivalry: Complete Edition (the original Chivalry: Medieval Warfare along with the Deadliest Warrior DLC) for £4.04 / $4.92. If multiplayer medieval chop ‘em ups are your thing, you probably don't’ want to miss out on this one, as it ends tonight.
Any game that uses the tagline of “Lose your mind. Eat your crew. Die.” is probably worthy of your attention. Sunless Sea is a bit of an indie gem, but a divisive one. If Lovecraftian top-down survival games with a focus on narrative are your thing, though? You need this one. It’s currently on sale for £4.75 / $6.45 on Steam, where you can also pick up with the brand new downloadable content, Zubmariner, included as well for £12.74 / $17.44.
If you’re an Android user, be it on a phone, tablet or otherwise droided-up device, you should probably pick up a copy of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath while it’s reduced down to a ridiculously cheap 10p / 12¢. Like, really, it’s 10p. For the entire game. A game that was once an original Xbox launch title, on your phone for 10p / 12¢. Just go for it.
For a limited time, you can pick up any of the Arkham series of Batman games on PC for extra cheap, over at GamesPlanet. Arkham Asylum and Arkham City will set you back £3.99 / $4.88 each, for the Game of the Year Editions of both, while Arkham Knight comes in at £9.99 / $12.24 for the standard version.
- Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY Edition on PC (Steam) for £3.99 / $4.88 from GamesPlanet
- Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition on PC (Steam) for £3.99 / $4.88 from GamesPlanet
- Batman: Arkham Knight on PC (Steam) for £9.99 / $12.24 from GamesPlanet
Meanwhile, over on iOS, Square Enix is offering two out of the three “GO” games currently available as a bundle together for a new lowest price. For 79p / 99¢, you can get both Lara Croft GO and Hitman GO to use on your iPhone, iPad or assorted other device beginning with a lowercase I. Given that this bundle means that each game is costing under 40p / 50¢ each, it’s hard not to see it as a good deal.
This week saw the release of what is presumably the final version of Metal Gear Solid V - the ‘Definitive Experience’ edition that collects Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain in one neat package. GamesPlanet is currently offering up a bit of an extra discount for the PC version of this package, selling the Steam version for £21.24 / $25.83. If you haven’t tried this game yet or just need an excuse to play through again on a new format, this isn’t a bad time to jump in.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution, one of the increasing number of backward compatible titles available on Xbox One, was originally released on Xbox 360 and can be purchased digitally right now for £2.99 / $3.74 via the Xbox Live marketplace. It’s probably the cheapest way to get yourself up to date before (or after) playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
Remember that Bluetooth SNES controller I posted on a previous Jelly Deals roundup article? Well, the creators of that tiny piece of nostalgia are back with an even more out-of-left-field creation. This time, a Bluetooth Nintendo 64 controller replica is headed our way, due for release within the next few weeks and for use with PC, mobile, and most other Bluetooth enabled things. It’s a little bit more expensive than the previous NES and SNES replica Bluetooth controllers have been, but given how niche the appeal for this thing must be, it’s a miracle it even exists. Plus, look at it!
Ubisoft’s latest opportunity to stamp the Tom Clancy name on something with guns in it, The Division, is currently on sale at Amazon US, where the PC version has hit an all-time low price of $14.99. So if you like your shooters always-online and your Christmases miserable, you may just want to pick this one up while it’s so cheap.
EA’s ongoing series of virtual dollhouses and/or murder plotting simulators, The Sims, is onto its fourth entry after over a decade of removing ladders from swimming pools. The aforementioned Sims 4 is available on Amazon US right now for $29.99 in both digital and boxed versions. The digital version is an EA Origin code, though, so consider that a heads up.
If you’re a new PS4 owner or you’ve been living in caves for the past ten years or so, you may not have had the pleasure of playing any of the Uncharted series yet. Luckily, shortly before Sony released Nathan Drake’s final rodeo earlier this year, they also released a trilogy collection of his earlier adventures. Over at Amazon, the first three games will run you $20, for a limited time.
It’s the end of the world as we know it. GAME is currently offering the ‘Darksiders Franchise Pack’, which consists of Steam copies of Darksiders, Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition and a bonus soundtrack, for £9, making it the cheapest way to get your hands on these games at the moment.
If you absolutely, positively need to have every single bit of Destiny you absolutely can, well then you’re going to want to pick up the ominously titled “Destiny: The Collection” on either Xbox One or PS4. The current cheapest way to pick up a copy of this choc-full-of-stuff version of the game is over at SimplyGames, where both versions are reduced to £29.85 for a limited time.
In this week’s edition of “ooh, that’s a cheap PS4”. we have this bundle courtesy of Tesco Direct. For £259, you’ll be getting a PS4 500GB Slim console with an extra DualShock 4 controller (the fancy new kind) as well as copies of Mafia 3 and FIFA 17. That’s a saving of about £100 off what you’d normally pay for all that, and it ain’t half bad. Just add everything to your basket and the total price will automatically discount at checkout.
The new “in thing” in the world of PC gaming is having a ludicrously wide 21:9 monitor. If you’d like to be one of the cool kids, it just got a little easier, since Currys is currently selling two of LG’s finest Ultrawide monitors at reduced prices. You can get a 25-inch model for £145 or a 29-inch version for £240, which are some of the cheapest prices 21:9 monitors have ever been in the UK.
Alright, we’re done for another week. Keep in mind that deals, prices, and availability can change at the drop of a hat, so apologies if you miss out on something you wanted. I’ll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the world wide web for more deals. Feel free to visit, or follow us on Twitter and give us a like on Facebook.
