Currently, we are clinging desperately onto the end of September and unwilling to face the inevitability that October is mere days away, bringing with it an avalanche of video game releases. Will there be enough time in a normal human day to play a decent amount of them? We'll have to wait and see. All I know is that Shadow of Wardor looks like it might be very special and Super Mario Odyssey will be a new staple.
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.

As stock of the console begins to drift in a bit more consistently, Nintendo’s UK store has launched a ‘Build Your Own Bundle’ system on its main site. After choosing which console you want, you can pick a game, a carrying case, an amiibo and a free bonus gift (as tempted as the Mario hat is, you should probably pick a stand, screen protector or that Pokken Pro Controller). All that will run you for £349.99.
If you head over to the official Ubisoft store today, you can grab one of (or all of) these little chibi figurines of some of the original Rainbow Six Siege crew. If there’s one thing to be said for Ubi, they know how to do their collectibles.

- Six Collection - IQ Figurine for £17.99 from Ubisoft Store
- Six Collection - Tachanka Figurine for £17.99 from Ubisoft Store

It may have taken an extra six months to see a UK release, but it hasn’t taken that long for the price to fall to slightly more agreeable ranges. The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ on Nintendo Switch, in its fancy boxed form with extra trinkets, is currently £27.95 over at TheGameCollection.
Look, I’ve said it before and I’ll only inevitably say it again - Yakuza 0 is a delight and I adored all the dozens of hours I managed to pour into it. If I could befriend any video game character today, it would definitely be Majima. Conveniently enough, Yakuza 0 is down to its lowest price yet at Argos, costing you £21.99 for the time being.
Hori is resurrecting its classic Fighting Commander controller to coincide with this week’s release of the Super Nintendo Classic Edition. This thing is officially licensed by Nintendo, features a full set of turbo switches and will cost you $25.
If you’re in the mood for an Xbox, you can grab a shiny new Xbox One S console with a packed-in copy of Forza Horizon 3 or Halo Wars 2, pick two extra games for free and get the whole lot for $249. While stock lasts and all that.
GameStop has a bizarre amount of pretty decent discounts on a handful of console games including Yakuka 0, Persona 5, Puyo Puyo Tetris and Wolfenstein. All of those are things you absolutely need to play, by the way.
- Yakuza 0 on PS4 for $39.99 from GameStop
- Persona 5 on PS4 for $39.99 from GameStop
- Puyo Puyo Tetris on Nintendo Switch for $29.99 & PS4 for $19.99 from GameStop

Quite why Nintendo is so persistent in making more 3DS consoles, I’m not sure. What I do know is that this Poké Ball styled New 2DS XL will have already won over many hearts just from the way it looks. It’s up for pre-order now and will cost you $159.99.
With that, 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.
