Yep, it’s that time of the week again. Time to mute anyone using the phrase “TGIF” on Twitter. Oh, and also time to check out another batch of the week’s best gaming deals. This week involved a lot of PC download deals with a smattering of gaming mice on the side. If any of that sounds like your kind of thing, do read on.
As is the norm by now, 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.
UK & US Deals
Hey look, another Humble Bundle. This time, the bundle has a bit of a Star Wars flavour with just a pinch of greatness. By now, you’ll know the drill with Humble Bundles – the more you pay, the more you get, plus it can all go to charity if you like. They’re great. Even better, this bundle sees the Steam debut of Shadows of the Empire which was originally released as a Nintendo 64 launch title in the UK. I’m sure it definitely holds up twenty years after I initially played it and won’t at all be better left behind the rose-coloured glasses of nostalgia. Oh hey, you’ll get a t-shirt if you pay enough, neat!

While you’re over there at Humble, you should know that if you sign up to the site’s monthly subscription thingy this month, you’ll be getting a copy of Total War Warhammer along with a stack of other games for £10 / $12. The folks from Humble say you can quit any time you like, too. So that’s a thing.
This weekend, the LEGO Batman movie hits cinemas. Also this weekend, you can get yourself a copy of LEGO Batman 3 along with a massive seven DLC add-on packs, all for £6.69 / $9.99 over at Bundle Stars. Wow, how about that for timing, it’s almost like it was planned!
For those who don’t quite get enough underground railway in their day-to-day lives, the Metro series of gritty first-person-shooters may just have what you need. Over at Bundle Stars, you can pick up the Metro Redux Bundle, featuring both games, for £4.99 / $7.99 at the moment. These games use bullets as currency, too, which will be a valuable thing to learn for the future at the rate things are going.
At some point in our lives, all we’re going to want is to be held by a giant robot friend. Thankfully, Titanfall 2 is here to let each and every one of us experience that kind of joy. It’s currently down to just shy of £25 for one of those awkward code-in-a-box copies but the game itself is absolutely worth playing, in this writer’s opinion.
I’m a believer that if you’re going to use a controller to play a game on your PC, it’s hard to go wrong with the Xbox One Elite Controller. For all its bells and whistles, I personally find it to be one of the best feeling controllers out there. That being said, it’s absurdly expensive by default, so if you fancy saving some pennies, you could go for a refurbished version (that still has a 12 month warranty) from Home and Garden’s eBay outlet. One of those will run you £72.49.
As part of Microsoft’s ‘Play Anywhere’ campaign, the majority of first-party Xbox One games, when bought digitally, will come with a PC copy as well. A Windows 10 PC copy, sure, but a PC copy nonetheless. Such is the case for Forza Horizon 3, the digital version of which is currently reduced over at Amazon US, down to $39.99.
Logitech is no slouch when it comes to PC gaming peripherals and other related techy bits, so it’s always nice to see some of its stuff get reduced to slightly more affordable prices. NewEgg is currently offering the Logitech G602 gaming mouse (which somehow has eleven buttons without looking like a monstrosity) for $39.99, making it half price.
If you’re not quite taken by the Logitech G602 above, maybe you’d like to try the Razer Diamondback Chroma gaming mouse, which is reduced down to $41.99 at the moment at Amazon US. This one has Razer’s Chroma tech in it so it’s all shiny and stuff.
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.
