Best PC gaming deals of the week

As we charge headlong into the ‘Spring’ portion of the year’s offerings and the wait for Mass Effect Andromeda’s release draws to a gradual close (god, I hope that game is good), we’ve got yet another batch of gaming deals to take a look at. There’s a huge dose of PC download deals from the folks at GOG and Humble among others today, so let’s get stuck in.

As usual, 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.

GOG.com’s Spring Sale – Up to 90% off

We’ve talked about it before, but Humble has a monthly subscription service thing going on that’ll get you a stack of Steam keys each month. Usually, there will be one big-deal title in the bunch along with a set of rather interesting indies. Last month, the big-deal game was Total War Warhammer, the month before that it was XCOM 2 – this month, it’s The Witness. You can get The Witness along with the aforementioned stack of other games for £10 / $12 by signing up now. For the record, the folks at Humble say you can cancel anytime, too.

Clustertruck is a downright insane, delirious mess of a game. It’s a platformer that puts you in the boots of the kind of mad person who would stand on top of a moving truck and then up the ante by jumping to other moving trucks. It’s a platformer with a unique style and some nausea inducing levels. Oh, and it’s down to £4.39 / $5.99 today.

There’s only a matter of hours left in this sale but while you’re there, Humble is hosting a sale on Devolver Digital titles right now. Everything from Titan Souls to Hotline Miami to The Talos Principle is featured, with some heavy discounts for the rest of today only. Worth a look, if you’re quick enough.

Timed conveniently enough to coincide perfectly with the game’s brand new Pathfinder update, No Man’s Sky is discounted today, down to £23.99 for a Steam key. There’s not much to say about this game that the internet hasn’t already said in many different forms so hey, consider this a heads up.

US Deals

Since VR is now actually a real life thing that you can buy and hold in your hands and not just an abstract idea from a William Gibson novel, you may have heard that the Oculus Rift has recently had a price cut. The new price is about $100 less than it was before and means you can pick up an Oculus Rift headset along with the Touch controllers for just shy of $600 right now. That’s nice.

Oculus Rift for $499.99 from Best Buy
Oculus Touch for $99.99 from Best Buy
Oculus Rift and Touch bundle for $599.98 from Best Buy

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.

    Distant Worlds Universe is on sale on Steam:
    link to store.steampowered.com

    £14.84 is bargainous! :)

      Wowowow! Thank you for that headsup! I’ve wanted that for ages, but couldn’t justify paying £45 for it.

    • Kaeoschassis says:

      Yes, I came here to post exactly this, good job.

      Of course, I bought it exactly one week ago at full price. Of course.

      Ah well, it’s worth it as few games will ever be.

  2. Gothnak says:

    Paradox have a large wargame sale on Steam, and a completely different non overlapping EU and CK one on the Humble store.

  3. Ricc says:

    Clive Barker’s Undying is a total gem. Had a lot of fun playing it recently for the first time.

    • identiti_crisis says:

      I recall I was very fond of playing Undying when it first came out. It was a nice blend of scary and actiony bits, and I even found the story interesting. Not that I remember any specifics!

      • Darth Gangrel says:

        Undying is one of my favorites, because of the atmosphere coupled with the guns/spells gameplay. Had some nice really nice music/audio design too.

  4. Themadcow says:

    Eh, £23.99 for No Man’s Sky? Just £10 more expensive than the PSN sale version then (or £14 more if you get the PS4 disc version). No thanks.

    Might finally get Starbound though.

    I know that I should pickup SUPERHOT and that I’d greatly enjoy it. However, I just can’t justify paying $12.49 for a game that only lasts 1-1.5 hours.

    Also, I think there is a typo as GOG has SUPERHOT priced at $12.49 and not $10.74.

    • Bull0 says:

      The campaign really only serves as a memey intro to the challenge levels, which are the real meat of the game. I find it a tad disingenuous to say the game “only lasts 1-1.5 hours”.

      I still don’t think the game is worth it simply because it doesn’t have much variety and depth. Way more interesting experiences to be had for the money.

      • walrus1 says:

        Personally, I count the main campaign as the most important part of the game. Yes, challenges and redux levels are nice but they are always secondary to the main campaign. Honestly, in most cases going back to try and get achievements or beat challenge levels usually is quite dull.

        • Bull0 says:

          I could tell that was your reasoning but it’s completely arbitrary. You can’t measure every game by the same yardstick, and in the case of Superhot it’s the campaign that’s the extra, in all seriousness. Just because they’re an afterthought in most games doesn’t mean it’s the case here, which is…why I said that.

    Ys series on Steam went on sale today. I snapped up the ones I didn’t have.
