Best PC Gaming Deals Of The Week

Quite a week it’s been so far. At the very least, we all still have video games. Whether you’re stuck in nostalgia, binging on Commodore 64 games or you’re planning on jumping into Mafia 3 this weekend, video games don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon and we’ve got another week’s worth of deals for some good old fashioned escapism.

I’m not afraid to say that, in my opinion, Day of the Tentacle is still one of the greatest point-and-click adventure games ever made. My preference was always to LucasArts games over the Sierra ones. It’s exciting then that I can tell you that for the rest of today, you can buy the remastered version of Day of the Tentacle for £5.49 / $7.49. You can also read John’s review of the game, if you like.

Namco Bandai is a company known for a variety of things, including several thousand Naruto, Dragon Ball Z and One Piece games. My personal favourite title they’ve lent their name to? Professional Farmer 2015. This weekend, Namco Bandai is hosting a Steam sale on some of their finest wares. These include, but are not limited to, the below.

Dark Souls 3 for £25.99 / $38.99
Project Cars for £11.69 / $14.99
PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX+ for £1.99 / $2.49
Dragon Ball Xenoverse for £9.99 / $12.49

You can check out the whole range right here.

The ever-present Warhammer series dips its toes into a new genre with Vermintide, a game that takes elements of Left 4 Dead and swaps out zombies for hordes of giant undead rat monster things. You can read Alec’s thoughts on the game right here, while it’s currently in a flash deal over at GamesPlanet, where it can be picked up for £13.79 / $17.53.

Humble Bundles are no longer always things to be excited about, but if you’re a fan of strategy games, the latest is worth checking out. In celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Company of Heroes franchise, you can currently pay whatever you want and get some form of Company of Heroes game. Pay more than $10 (which is around £7.86) to get absolutely every piece of CoH content possible. Pay more than $30 and they’ll throw in a T-shirt, for some reason.

Oxenfree is a game with a wonderfully unique art style, some memorable characters and a whole serving of 80s nostalgia, wrapped up in an indie horror game. Pip described it as an “unexpected delight” too, so that’s a bit nice. It’s down to £3.74 / $4.99 on Steam for a limited time.

On the note of PC horror games, there’s SOMA. SOMA has less nostalgia and a lot more creature horror, which results in a lot more abject terror than mild unsettlement. It takes elements from Amnesia, the developer’s previous game, and inserts a semi-philosophical sci-fi story. It’s a game about creeping dread, mostly, and it’s fantastic. It’s on offer for £9.19 / $11.99 on Steam right now.

In the world of video games, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a bit of an old dog now. It’s been around long enough to have a pension, a mortgage, but not long enough to have paid off its student loans. It’s an online multiplayer sword and spear type game where players are given the ability to run around in fields and kill each other. If that sounds up your alley, head over to GamersGate now, while it’s priced at £3.80 / $5.

If, however, you like your online multiplayer medieval battle games with a little more village-ravishing disease, maybe you’ll prefer The Black Death. This one is currently edging its way out of Early Access right now, but can be bought for £10.29 / $12.99 from Green Man Gaming.

Out There is a text-y FTL: you’re being pursued by a malevolent force; you must visit planets and systems and deal with whatever you encounter there; you need to make careful decisions at each stage or you’ll be stranded adrift in space forever or blown up very quickly. And it has that neat learning-alien-languages mechanic that No Man’s Sky took wholesale. The polished-up-for-PC Omega Edition is down to just about half price at Green Man Gaming right now.

Alright, 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.

    None of this matters when DUNGEON KEEPER IS FREE!

    • unacom says:

      That freedom comes at a price.
      It´s on Origin.

      • Silvermarch says:

        So? That’s not price.

        • Vedharta says:

          Except for that constant 15% CPU load its churning away and ‘Windows can not close yet, Origin is busy’ nonsense.

          • goon buggy says:

            Oi, I resent that origin slagging off thing.
            Yeah, it only gets used when I feel like some CnC. Or what ever game theyre giving away this month.
            But compared to steam, Its a stream lined, wel apart from letting people list the games as a list.

  2. lglethal says:

    Bah I cant take anything you say seriously Jamie, when you describe Skaven as “undead rat monster things”. They are mutated rat monster things, no undeadiness involved! Bah I say, Bah!

  3. LTK says:

    Dark Souls 3’s season pass is also on sale on gamesplanet:–2978-3

    There’s no regional restriction as far as I can tell, and it’s been a bit cheaper in the past, but considering the first DLC comes out this month it’s a pretty good price.

    • Kingseeker Camargo says:

      Thanks for this! I’ve been waiting for a deal like that \[T]/

      On an unrelated note: I clicked “log in to reply”, logged in and appeared automagically back here! We have an edit button and now THIS? Way to go RPS entering the 21st century!

      Also everyone go get into #ReturnToLodran

  4. Lacessit says:

    Got gifted Oxenfree earlier this week, and I can vouch for the fact that it’s a delight. It wasn’t unexpected though, as Pip had warned me.

  5. Blastaz says:

    If anyone is wondering what no mans sky is like buy out there, they “borrowed” half their mechanics from it…

  6. Jay Load says:

    Bloody hell, SOMA IS fantastic! I’ve been playing it since yesterday. It’s scary as hell and stunningly gorgeous. The writing and acting are great too.

    Yet another masterpiece from Frictional.

  7. aerozol says:

    4 pounds for Shadow of Mordor + all DLC on Bundlestars, cheap enough for me to bite!
    Heard good things about the game too.

  8. eLBlaise says:

    Dear RPS game titles above screen shots please. Things get confusing if you don’t already know what game the screen shot belongs to.
