The internet might currently be ablaze with discussion on Nintendo’s latest game-thing but we’re here once more to talk about things that really matter in the here and now – namely, how good Day of the Tentacle is and which Amiga games were the best ones. All joking aside, we’re about halfway through January now and fast approaching the first of another year’s worth of major video game releases. Thankfully, we’ve got some gaming deals to talk about, as always, for you to pick up in the meantime.
UK & US Deals
Humble Bundle is back yet again to ask you to part with your money, however much you feel like parting with. This time, it’s a bit special though – this one comprises solely of games with ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ feedback on Steam. As I hinted at in the opening paragraph, Day of the Tentacle Remastered is amongst the games you’ll get with a purchase which makes it worthwhile if nothing else does. More games to be added in the coming week, too, so keep an eye on this one.

As promised, GOG has continued its plan to have weekly sales on a varying range of PC titles. In the second week of discounts, the site is offering you the chance to pick up games from the Worms, Escapists, Men of War and Tex Murphy series, amongst a few others. So if you’re a fan of war, prisons, turn-based destruction or FMV games, head on over and take a look.
No matter how you feel about the game itself, Undertale is currently on offer for £3.49 / $4.99 on Steam for the next few hours. That right there is just a fact. It’s been next to impossible to ignore the tidal wave of excitement that the internet built up around this game shortly after its release but if you’ve been curious without ever picking up a copy, now might be the time to see it for yourself.
For £6.24 / $7.99 / €7.49 right now, you can head over to EA’s Origin service and pick up the Command & Conquer Ultimate Collection. That means you’ll be getting more or less every Command & Conquer game available and far more games than you’ll actually play any time soon. Most importantly, you’ll be getting the Red Alert series in all it’s absolutely insane FMV wonderfulness. Plus, Tim Curry is in that one game. I mean, come on
The game that came along and ate Sim City’s lunch, Cities: Skylines is discounted down to £5.74 / $7.49 / €6.99 right now over at Bundle Stars. This one won a lot of hearts simply by delivering on many of the hopes that EA’s Sim City from a few years back failed to fulfill, so if you’ve had a hankering to fall down the city-builder genre hole once more, this might be your answer.
Any game that got away with calling it self ‘Total Annihilation’ is probably worth checking out, right? Better still when that game happens to be a real-time strategy classic from the 90s and a game that helped define an entire genre. A Steam version of the aforementioned Total Annihilation can be yours right now (as long as you live in the US, that is) for just $1.25 for a limited time.
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.
