Welcome to another week’s worth of deals and offers, as spotted by me over at Jelly Deals. If you’re not planning on being utterly distracted by No Man’s Sky this weekend, you may want to cast your eyes over some of these deals and see if anything strikes your fancy.
The other trade-based space exploration game that released this year, Stellaris, is a wonderfully tactical strategy game. Just read Adam’s review. It’s also mostly held onto its £35 price point since launch. However, over at Zavvi, you can pick up a boxed version of the game for £24.99 at the moment, which is currently the cheapest way to get a copy. The code in the box will redeem through Steam anyway.
The HD remastered version of one of (arguably) the most influential video games of the last fifteen years is available to buy on PC for £5.99, currently. Whether you’re a newcomer to the Resi series or you’re a veteran who feels the need to dig back in and play through this one more time, Resident Evil 4 HD at under half price is hard not to recommend.
Indie PC hack and slasher Slain may have had what we will gently refer to as a ‘troubled launch’ back in March, but the developers responded to the harsh criticism by taking a second look at the game themselves. After a few months of fixes, improvements and changes, Slain: Back From Hell was released to Steam, a new and improved version of the game that received a much more favourable reception. Green Man Gaming have slashed the price of this one down to £5.57 currently. Was the ‘fixed’ version of the game worth the wait?
If, somehow, you don’t already own a copy of Spelunky for PC, you should fix that right now. Fortunately, while a copy of the game on Steam itself may currently have a price tag of £10.99 / $14.99, GOG.com are offering the game up for just £2.29 / $2.99.That’s a DRM-free copy of the game too, as you would expect from GOG. Since Spelunky is easily worth the full price, this one is just a bit of a steal.
This mini-profile GeForce 1060 6GB from EVGA is currently being offered up on NewEgg for $249.99, but you can get a discount on that if you check out with a VISA and use the code VCOGOLD16 on checkout. This means you will end up paying a total cost of $240.
Alternatively, a Radeon card might be more your speed. NewEgg are also offering up this MSI Radeon R9 390 8GB graphics card for $275, though by jumping through a few hoops, this card will only cost you $240. Firstly, as above, checkout using a VISA and enter the code VCOGOLD16 at checkout, and this will knock $15 off the price right away. After that, you can grab a $20 rebate from purchasing the card and get your remaining cash back.
Unless you’re planning on picking up one of the freakishly expensive Xbox Elite Controllers, the new-style Xbox One controller (featuring Bluetooth) is your best bet for a standardised PC controller. The cheapest way to get one of these right now is to head over to NewEgg and enter the code EMCEMFE28 during checkout. That’ll bring the price down to a total of $45.
There seem to have been a lot of deals or price cuts going on for UltraWide monitors lately. They may or may not have become the latest “thing” in PC building. On that note, though, right now you can pick up this 34 inch LG 21:9 UltraWide IPS monitor for $335 when you use the code BCD16794508 at checkout. The same model is currently on Amazon for $400, so you’re saving a fair chunk of cash this way.
Because some people will need (or want) as much storage space as is physically possible, even if the number itself is a little ridiculous, you can purchase this 8TB external hard drive over at eBay right now, with $100 off. That makes this drive cost a total of $190, which isn’t bad considering the amount of storage in this little box.
Please keep in mind that all deals, stock levels and prices can change at any time, so apologies if that happens on something you like. As always, I’ll be over at Jelly Deals, keeping my eyes peeled for more deals, but you can keep up to date with us by following us on Twitter or Facebook. See you next week!
