Best PC gaming deals of the week

Now that we’ve all had enough time to slowly and wearily make it through the awful thing that is the week after a long weekend, we’re back up and running as we once were, with another batch of the best PC gaming deals of the week. There are even some free things in this one, too! But seriously, good job on making it through the week, everyone. Hopefully, the chocolate-induced coma wasn’t too bad.

Right, onto the deals. 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.

Giveaway time!

We’ve got another giveaway going on over at Jelly Deals. We partnered up once more with GOG.com to offer you guys the chance of winning one of five keys for the brand new Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series game on PC. Entry closes at midnight tonight (Friday 21st April), though, so if you fancy being in with a chance of winning, you may want to head to the link below and do just that while you can.

You may have already spotted this one during the week, but Blizzard’s only gone and made the original StarCraft and its expansion Brood War free for PC and Mac right now. Sure, it’s to get you all excited for the upcoming StarCraft Remastered but free is free! Fill yer boots.

Simulators! The only style of game that can be equally exciting when you launch into space as when you successfully navigate a forklift around a warehouse in a productive yet orderly manner. The folks over at Humble are celebrating the genre this week with a sale on Simulation games including Kerbal Space Program, Project CARS, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Big Pharma and more. The sale is ending soon though, so get your skates on with this one.

SSDs are notoriously expensive and while prices have started to fall more recently, it’s always nice to see one with a heavy discount. Enter NewEgg’s eBay outlet, where you can currently pick up this Samsung EVO 850 SSD in a 500GB format for $133.99, a price cut down from its original $200 price tag, for a limited time. Not a bad deal if you can get it.

    So what game is the picture of the marina at the top of the article from?

    Sadly no deal on the Samsung here..

    I’ve just realised that Jelly Deals is a pun on words. Jellies Eels. Geddit? I feel slow.

  4. madve2 says:

    Also worth mentioning that if you own any of the Saints Row games on Steam you can now add them to your GOG Library using GOG Connect. I connected SR III and got The Full Package even though I only had the base game on Steam. I’m a monster.

  5. skeletortoise says:

    I guess you weren’t joking when you said the simulation deal was ending soon.

    Edit: Ah, for some reason I thought it was a bundle so I didn’t notice it in the store.

  6. Wellzy4eva says:

    Saints Row 2 is also free on Steam right now.

  7. Cartras says:

    Still waiting for a remake of Covert Action. Was one of my first games ever. I also bought it on a steam sale a while ago so I can re-visit it whenever the urge strikes.
