Best PC Gaming Deals Of The Week

Well, we’ve made it to September. Games are officially being released now and, rather relentlessly, and they essentially won’t stop until the end of the year or until we’re all buried under their weight. On that note, let’s take a look at some of last week’s best gaming deals, shall we?

UK Deals

World of Warcraft expansions are no longer as exciting as they once were, as most people have made up their minds about the game and the additions (fairly) cater more to those who remain more than trying to draw new people in. We’ve got a review coming in due course, but you may want to know in the meantime 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.

You may have missed Mirror’s Edge Catalyst when it was released earlier in the year. If so, you can currently pick up a copy of the game (which is a boxed copy that redeems on Origin) for £22.99 right now from Amazon. If you like, you can also read Graham’s thoughts on the enjoyable-but-sometimes-frustrating parkour playbox.

Over at Bundle Stars, you can get 75% off of a 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 this one, you’ll need to grab it quick. After all, not all games have the honour to be somewhat hesitatingly called “pretty decent” by John Walker or one of the best 7/10 games ever by Alec Meer now, do they?

Groupon are offering a wired Xbox 360 controller for £16.99 while stocks last. That’s about £5 less than Amazon sells them for right now and the 360 controller falls very firmly into the tried-and-tested realm of gamepads for PC. It’s a bit of a workhorse: it may not be the prettiest, but it’ll get the work done. Limited stock on this one though, so it won’t be around forever.

US Deals

Mafia III is almost out (well, it’s about a month and a bit away) so some of you may have had your thoughts turn to the previous entry into the series. It’s less fondly remembered than the original, but if you feel an urge to play Mafia II for the first time, you can do so without breaking the bank. Amazon are selling the game for $6 right now. Fill your boots.

Mafia 2 on PC (Steam) for $6 from Amazon US

As part of a sale that Amazon is currently having on a range of PC downloads, you can pick up Metro Redux for $7.50. In case maths isn’t your strong suit, that’s less than $4 per game for the fixed-up versions of 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.

If you’ve never played Sleeping Dogs, then you’re probably missing out on a whole lot of fun. No, they’re not as polished and expensive to look at as the Grand Theft Auto games, but they’re focused, slick, and full of really nasty fight-finishing moves. The Definitive Edition of Sleeping Dogs is available on Amazon right now as a Steam download for $7.50.

Finally for this week, we have a deal that doesn’t restrict itself to one region. Right now, on Steam, you can pick up Cities Skylines with a whopping 75% off – bringing the price down to £5.74 (or $7.49 if you’re using New World money). That’s for the standard version. If you want the deluxe edition, which is packaged with a selection of in-game landmarks to place haphazardly around your city, that’ll run you £7.49 (or $9.99). If you’d like a run-down of what’s in store for you in Cities Skylines before you pull the trigger, you can read Alec’s review of the game here. This is the best deal from Steam’s Paradox Weekend sale, which also offers discounts on the Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis and Hearts of Iron series, plus recent scifi 4X Stellaris.

Cities Skylines Deluxe Edition for £7.49 / $9.99 from Steam

Right, 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.

    That’s not a controller for the 360 ;)

  2. Bishop149 says:

    I do wish they’d get round giving good discounts (or just reasonable pricing) on the City: Skylines expansions. Under current discount buying both expansions would cost more than the bloody base game.

  3. Unsheep says:

    GOG is having some great deals right now, up 80% off:
    * Fallen Enchantress
    * Sorcerer King
    * Galactic Civilizations III
    * Ashes of the Singularity

    Some personal favourites from the sale:
    * Syberia 1-2
    * Star Control 1-3
    * Atlantis 1-3
    * Hostile Waters
    * Corsairs Gold
    * Republique (all 5 episodes)

    Ah, yes. I remember the first time I fought Beaker from the Muppets in Metro 2033.

  5. clippa says:

    No mention of the steam shmup sale – link to

    I can recommend deathsmiles, mushihimesama, crimzon clover, eschatos, space moth dx, bullet heaven 2, gundemonium recollection and qp shooting dangerous.

    Not a shmup, a twin stick shooter/roguelite but get “enter the gungeon” as well as it’s fab.

    Downwell is like a buck fifty on Steam this weekend too.
