I recently played through Virginia and just before I fall back into a weekend-long David Lynch obsession (yet again), I can do two things. First, I can tell you that if you’re into narrative adventure games, you should probably play Virginia (check out Paul’s review if you’re unsure). Second, I can bring a whole bunch of the best gaming deals to you here and let you see if any of them strike your fancy.
Over at Green Man Gaming, you can get yourself a copy of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition for £27.15 (or $29.09 in the States), by heading over to Green Man Gaming, signing in and then entering the code VIP3 at checkout. That’ll get you Geralt in all his cat-eyed, silver fox glory.
This weekend, you can pick up a copy of the not-quite-Theme-Hospital pharmaceutical company simulator, Big Pharma on Steam for its lowest price yet – £6.45 ($8.49 in the US and presumably a regional equivalent elsewhere). This is a weekend-specific deal, however, so if you feel like playing House for a while, it’s never been cheaper.
While we’re talking about Steam, Rockstar Games is holding a weekend sale of their own, offering up to 70% off some of their biggest games. Having said that, when is a Rockstar game not a big deal? While Grand Theft Auto V can be grabbed for slightly cheaper elsewhere (see further down this page), you can pick up copies of the below games at a nice discount.
Grand Theft Auto IV for £6.99 / $6.99
L.A. Noire Complete Edition for £7.40 / $8.99
Max Payne 3 for £5.24 / $6.99
Max Payne 1 and 2 Bundle for £2.99 / $4.49
Bully: Scholarship Edition for £3.49 / $5.24
Check out the whole range right here.
While Grand Theft Auto V is on offer from Steam itself, if you head over to GamesPlanet instead, you can pick up the game for even cheaper. It’s up for £25.99 for a copy of the game or £28.99 for the game and a Great White Shark Card. Keep in mind that by getting this version of the game, you’ll be getting the game through the Rockstar Social Club, though, and not a Steam key. So that might be a dealbreaker for some.
If you like your slashy action games to be a little on the grimdark side of things, Darksiders may be your thing. For the next few days, you can pick up the Darksiders Collection, which gathers together the original Darksiders, Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition and a soundtrack, all for £8.99 at the moment at GamesPlanet.
If, like me, you’ve spent more hours than you can count playing old LucasArts adventure games, you may be interested to hear that GamersGate is currently offering some massive discounts on the Steam versions some of the absolute best ones. Sadly, there’s no Grim Fandango on offer, but you can pick up all of the above on PC for under £2 each. While I’ve got your attention, I’m selling these fine leather jackets…
Here’s the list of what you can get your hands on:
Yes, yes, more Rockstar. Grand Theft Auto V is on offer over at Steam this weekend for a big discount. But if you happen to miss out on that deal, or just really enjoy having boxed PC games for some reason, Target are offering up their stock of GTA V for $29.99 for a limited time.
That’s it, 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. I’ll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the world wide web for more deals. Feel free to visit, or follow us on Twitter and give us a like on Facebook.
