We've collectively made it so September, so what better time to take a look at some good gaming deals.
Video games are back, as signalled by the releases of both Deus Ex Mankind Divided and Madden. Now is when we’ll begin to look toward the run of games that are due to make their way onto shelves before the end of the year. And hey, maybe we’ll even hear about a new Nintendo console at some point too. That’d be nice. In the meantime, we’ve gathered up a list of the best gaming deals from the past week and we’ve brought them here for you to check out.
As always, if you like the look of any of these deals, you’re welcome to check it out. If not, no worries. Simple as that. We always try to make sure these deals are all in stock and active at the time of posting, but the internet works in mysterious ways and things can change swiftly, so please keep that in mind mid-perusal.
Right, let’s get on with it. As usual, we’ll start with US Deals and move onto UK Deals later down the page.
With the release of Mafia 3 just on the horizon, Amazon has cut the price on digital copies of Mafia 2 on PC. It’s now available for $6 and redeems on Steam. Given that it’s been a full six years since the release of the game, maybe you want to dip your toes into the Mafia style open-world action game before trying out the third in the series when it arrives in October. Alternatively, maybe you’ve never played a Mafia game before and this is a cheap way to get into the series. Maybe you just like buying Steam games for single-digit prices. Either way, you can head on over to Amazon and check out the offer yourself.
Fox McCloud returns in what will most likely be one of the last major releases on Nintendo’s Wii U platform (fingers crossed we’ll be seeing an NX release early next year), Star Fox Zero. When it was initially released, Star Fox Zero was packaged with the puzzle/tower defence side-game Star Fox Guard. Now, you can get this pair of games together for $31.64 thanks to a price cut over on Amazon right now. Personally, I still haven’t forgiven Nintendo for giving Slippy an uncle named Grippy. That’s just creepy, man.
If you’re an Xbox Live Gold member (and let’s face it, you should be), you have access to an extra discount on one of Microsoft’s flagship titles, Gears of War Ultimate Edition. While the game is currently listed for $20, Gold members will get a discount when they go to checkout and can buy the game for $10. That’s a great price for the remastered version of Gears and it might be enough to tide you over until the release of Gears of War 4 later this year.
As a part of Amazon’s current sale on a range of PC downloads, you can pick up Metro Redux for $7.50. For less than $4 per game for both Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light, it’s a good impulse buy if you feel like trying something new or whether you want to gift the Steam keys to a friend who has yet to experience the bleak Russian post-apocalypse that is the Metro games.
Finally, if you’ve never played Sleeping Dogs, then you’re probably missing out on a whole lot of fun you could be having. Just speaking from personal opinion, Sleeping Dogs was a superb blend of serious pulpy crime fiction and absolute ridiculousness that combined to form a super fun and replayable open-world action game. Plus you can dress up like Bruce Lee for some reason. The Definitive Edition of Sleeping Dogs is available on Amazon right now as a Steam download for $7.50.
If you’re not already several hours deep into the latest World of Warcraft expansion, Legion, by now then you’re either one of those people who will never play WoW in their life, or you’re just running super late. In the admittedly unlikely event of it being the latter, you may want to know that the cheapest place you can currently pick up a copy of Legion is over at Very, where they’re selling it for £24.99.
In the latest installment of “What did Konami announce this week?”, we have Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience, which is a new version of MGSV which combines both the shorter Ground Zeroes game with the full Phantom Pain game. That makes it the most complete version of Metal Gear Solid V you could get. It’s available for Xbox One and PS4, due out in October and currently up for pre-order cheapest at SimplyGames, who have it on site for £26.85 right now.
Although it’s been out for a while and is a relatively short experience, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a must-own for anyone who enjoyed Wolfenstein: The New Order. GAME are currently offering up Xbox One and PS4 copies of The Old Blood for £7.99, so you’ll effectively be getting around four-to-five hours of gameplay for just about £8. I’ll let you come to your own conclusions there.
If you missed Mirror’s Edge Catalyst when it was released near the beginning of this year, and haven’t caved while it’s gone through a series of price reductions in the months since, your new lowest price is here. You can currently pick up a PC copy of the game (which is a boxed copy that redeems on Origin) for £22.99 or a PS4 copy for £24.99. No similar discount on the Xbox One at the time of writing, but we have faith that it’ll come.
Over at Bundle Stars, you can get 75% off of a PC (Steam) copy of Mad Max. The game, not the movie. That brings the cost down to a total of £6.24 (or $9.99 if you’re visiting from the states). This offer is only around for a limited time, though, and it’s due to end super soon, so if you’ve even remotely thought about trying out the (arguably underrated) Mad Max game, you’ll need to grab this one quick.
If you’re primarily a PC gamer and have yet to pick up a controller (or fancy just having a spare), Groupon is offering a wired Xbox 360 controller for £16.99 while stocks last. That’s about £5 less than Amazon are currently selling them for currently and you’ll be getting a controller that became the gold standard for PC gaming and held that position for almost a decade. Limited stock on this one, though, so it won’t be around forever.
That’s all for this week. As usual, please keep in mind that deals, prices, and availability can change at any time, so sorry if that happens on any of the above. I’ll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the information super-highway for more deals, but feel free to drop us a like on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
