It’s a good weekend for games, since Titanfall 2, Dragonball Xenoverse 2 and Skyrim: Special Edition are all officially out now. Don’t even get me started on this week’s release of Farming Simulator 17, but we’ll get around to that a little bit further down the page. There’s a smorgasbord of deals to go through today.
We’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. Let’s get started, shall we.
UK & US Deals
Steam is having itself a Versus Evil publisher sale this weekend, with discounts on The Banner Saga, The Banner Saga 2 and a bunch of other games they’ve released. Let’s be honest, it’s mostly about The Banner Saga series and you can pick up the original game for £4.49 / $5.99 and its sequel for £11.24 / $14.99 for the next couple days.
Ah, life on the farm. Ploughing the fields, tending the crops and threatening strangers with shotguns. For most of us, this kind of lifestyle will only ever be a pipedream but Farming Simulator 17 will, at the very least, give us an insight into how the farming community goes about their days. It’s on offer for £23.99 / $26.24 at GamersGate at the moment.
While the title of Bundle Stars’ Dollar Dash promotion is a little one-sided to folk on the other side of the Atlantic, it works worldwide. With it, you can put down $1 (or £1 with a slightly questionable exchange rate) and choose a Steam game from a selection. Spend a little more and you’ll get a bunch more games in bundles of your choosing, up to seven games for £4.89 / $5. Disclosure: Yep, that’s Sir, You Are Being Hunted in the sale’s header image, and Sir is made by the company founded by Jim Rossignol, co-founder of this website.
Life would be a whole lot simpler if we could all just be as care-free as BUD, the little red robot from Ubisoft’s Grow Home and Grow Up games. If you fancy some colourful escapism, you can grab Grow Up for £3.99 / $4.88 at GamesPlanet right now.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is a game that is far more fun to play than it really has any right to be. Taking elements from Assassin’s Creed, the Arkham games and more than a few other titles and blending them all together into a Lord of the Rings themed video game smoothie worked out well for the devs, however. Right now, at Bundle Stars, you can pick up the base game along with all eighteen (!) DLC add-ons for £5.59 / $6.99 all together.
This weekend, GAME is offering up some Halloween themed PC downloads at discounted prices. Their range includes stuff like Dead Space for £3, Left 4 Dead 2 for £3.75, Zombi for £5, Resident Evil 6 for £5 and, for no apparent reason, Stardew Valley for £8.24. Not sure why Stardew managed to find its way here, but hey, it’s still a saving on a fairly unique game.
To put it nicely EA’s latest Sim City left a fair amount to be desired when it was released a few years ago. Not everyone was a fan of the always-online nature of the game or the somewhat restrictive nature of city sizes. If you have a soft spot for city-builder games, though, the game is available for only £5 as a download from Amazon right now.
Dark Souls 3 got a new hat this week in the form of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC and with the franchise seemingly headed toward no more future titles, it’s a good time to look back and dive back into the very first in the series. At GameStop US currently, you can pick up a download copy of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die edition for $4.99, which is good value for the amount of rage it’ll give you. You normally have to pay a premium for that.
Fallout 4 has been out for almost a year now, so it’s on you if you haven’t yet picked up a copy and lost dozens of hours of your life in the process of playing through it. If, somehow, you haven’t, you can grab a copy of the game for $19.99 at Amazon and lose a weekend in the process. Don’t even get me started on all the extra DLC you can get.
With that, 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.
