This week was packed full of gaming deals, especially if you’re quite fond of PC downloads for dirt cheap. Let’s take a look.
UK & US Deals
This week, Humble is going above and beyond the call of duty.

This time around, 100% of proceeds are donated to charity – specifically to aid causes opposing the US immigration ban.
Here’s the full list of games that you’ll get for your donation, there’s also a set of audiobooks, ebooks and even a digital graphic novel thrown in for good measure.

In what is one of the best value bundles seen on iOS at the moment, Square Enix is currently offering all three games in its GO trilogy (Hitman GO, Lara Croft GO and Deus Ex GO) for one extra low price – £1.99 / $1.99. Sure, that exchange rate doesn’t quite work out but what in this crazy world does, eh?
Back in one of the golden era of video games, SEGA put a lot of effort into creating new and interesting franchises. One such franchise was the ultra stylish and super funky Jet Set Radio. The more recent Steam release of this roller-skating, graffiti tagging, street dancing classic is now £1.39 / $1.99 for a limited time.
Over at GAME this weekend, you’ll be able to grab yourself a few PC RPG titles with some extra discounts.

Argos has a bit of a stellar deal right now if you’ve ever considered getting one of Microsoft’s luxury Xbox One Elite controllers. If you head over to the Argos site today, you can grab the Elite controller for £99.99 along with your choice of a free Xbox One game to go with it – from a choice of Gears 4, Halo 5, Forza Horizon 3 or Dead Rising 4.
Not the cheapest the game has ever been available for but one of the lower price we’ve seen this year, the console version of Overwatch is currently reduced down to £32.99 at Amazon UK. If you’ve been looking for an Xbox One or PS4 copy, this is the best price the game has been in months.
Although this is officially labelled a ‘Blu-ray starter pack’, presumably for those just picking up a Blu-ray player or modern gaming console, it’s also just a really good chance to get five whole horror movies on Blu-ray for a ridiculously cheap price. £12.99 will get you this set including Crimson Peak, The Witch, The Visit, Unfriended and Maggie.
If you fancy yourself a die-hard Destiny fan and don’t already own a PS4 console, you may just raise an eyebrow at this deal from Zavvi. For £209.99, you can get yourself this extra fancy Destiny Limited Edition PS4 500GB console along with a copy of Destiny: The Taken King. It’s super fancy and a collector’s item, even if it’s not a newer slim model.
Dark Souls 3 happened to be popular enough to make numerous game of the year lists at the end of 2016, so it should be no surprise to see the imminent release of the Game of the Year Edition, which collects the original Dark Souls 3 game as well as its two massive DLC packs. It’s available for £35 on Xbox One or PS4, as well as £32 for PC.
Sports games, especially those of the Ice Hockey variety, tend to hold their value pretty well in the UK, which is why it’s especially nice to see NHL 17 drop to its lowest price so far on Xbox One and PS4 today, now available for £29.99.
For those of you out there who own a Nintendo Wii U but somehow still don’t own Bayonetta 2 – you can fix that right now by grabbing a copy of the game while it’s down to £12.99 currently at Argos.
GAME is currently offering up a bit of an insanely good offer if you’re in the market for an Xbox One console. For £249.99, you’ll get yourself a 500GB Xbox One S console along with copies of Battlefield 1, Forza Horizon 3 and this week’s new release For Honor. That’s a whole lot of gaming for your money.

One of Mario’s latest (and most 2D) adventures is last year’s Paper Mario: Color Splash. If you missed this vibrant, quirky entry into the Mario franchise, you can pick up a copy on Wii U for $39.99 right now, one of the lowest prices it’s ever been at.
If you missed out on one of the best (and most entertaining) competitive multiplayer shooters of the past ten years, you can grab yourself a copy of Splatoon on Wii U for a mere $35 at the moment. The price is drifting up and down at present, so your mileage may vary but this is one hell of a good price.
