Oh, boy, the Steam Summer Sale has started. Alright, look, I know that time is precious and every moment spent reading this roundup of the best deals of the week is time not spent perusing Steam, so I’ll just cut to the chase and get to the offers.
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.
As you probably already know by now, Steam’s annual Summer Sale is now on. In fact, by the time you read this you may have already drained all the money from your bank account picking up a vast assortment of PC games that you’ll never quite have enough time to actually play through. That said, a Steam sale is always an exciting time, so be sure to check out our big post recommendations.
Also, in case you missed it previously, PayPal is offering £5 off when you spend £20 or more during the Steam sale and checkout using its service. You can find out more about that on the link below (you’ll need to go there first to activate the offer).
Conveniently timed to start alongside the Steam Summer Sale, you can grab yourself a Steam Link or Steam Controller at reduced prices for a limited time. The Steam Link is reduced down to its lowest ever price – £11.99 in the UK and $15 in the US, while the Steam Controller is down to £27.99 / $34.99, matching its previous historical low price.
Valve is also selling both of these accessories at their respective discounted prices directly through Steam but keep in mind that you’ll pay extra for postage going directly through Steam and both GAME and Amazon US offer free shipping.
At the Humble Store right now, you can pick up a Steam copy of ultra-violent wave-based murder sim Killing Floor for absolutely nothing. That’s it, it’s free for a limited time, no catch here, just grab a copy while you can.
Of course, GOG is back once again for another instalment of its Weekly Sale, which has been going on since January. This week, the range includes a whole bunch of games at dirt cheap prices including the Smugglers series, Nosferatu: Wrath of Malachi, Incoming and more.
If you’re a Twitch Prime subscriber, you can get yourself a free Golden Loot Box for Overwatch this week. Those boxes, by the way, guarantee at least one legendary item and if you happen to be an Amazon Prime subscriber, you’ll already have a Twitch Prime account waiting to be activated. Head on over to the link below for more info on how to redeem your free Golden Loot Box. For what it’s worth, I got that Hanzo wolf skin and that was pretty neat.
For the next two weeks, Humble is offering up ten different bits of software geared towards creativity and security, all for a max price of $12 / £10. Here’s what you can get for your money.

Currys PC World (that combined name still sounds weird to me) is currently having itself a bit of a sale on various bits of tech. Notably, this ASUS Transformer 3 Pro 2-in-1 tablet/laptop thingy is reduced by a whopping £400, bringing the price down to £599 for a limited time. Sure it’s still not exactly cheap but it’s a big price drop.
Amazon US is getting involved with some of the PC game discounts this week, with a neat little selection of digital games with nice discounts. Namely, you can pick up God Eater 2 for $17, Bayonetta and Little Nightmares for $15 and Valkyria Chronicles for $5, which ain’t bad at all.
Bayonetta on PC (Steam) for $14.99 from Amazon US
Little Nightmares on PC (Steam) for $14.99 from Amazon US
God Eater 2: Rage Burst on PC (Steam) for $17 from Amazon US
Valkyria Chronicles on PC (Steam) for $5 from Amazon US
Strangely, this week GameStop US is also putting a whole bunch of PC games on sale with discounts of up to 80%. It’s almost as if there was some sort of competing sale on PC games somewhere. You can check out the whole range on the link below.
Okay, 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.
