It’s the end of another week which, among countless other things, means I’m back to take you on a tour of the very best deals from around the world of games and tech and other types of weird but fun things. This week, that involves an alarmingly above average amount of games that are entirely set in space. Escapism at its very best, there. 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.
UK & US Deals
Buy Tacoma and get Event free
The latest game from The Fullbright Company, creators of the infamous Gone Home, is Tacoma. A narrative-driven sci-fi gem of a game that fleshes out its characters a bit more than the company’s previous title. At the moment, buying a copy of Tacoma from GOG will get you a free bonus copy of similarly sci-fi themed title Event. Not a bad bundle if you fancy it.
Bundle Stars Summer Sale
Bundle Stars has begun its Summer Sale, which means there’s a brand new slew of discounts on digital PC games. You can enter the code SUMMER10 at checkout to get an extra 10% off your purchase, too, which is a bit nice. Here are some of the highlights.
Shadow of Mordor Game of the Year Edition for £3.19 / $3.99 / €3.99
Alien Isolation Collection for £8.39 / $11.99 / €11.03
XCOM 2 Deluxe Edition for £17.75 / $27.74 / €24.04

GOG Weekly Sale range
GOG’s back with another weekly sale range. This time, the offers include the Delta Force franchise, Red Faction 1 & 2, Painkiller, Legend of Kay: Anniversary, both Full Spectrum Warrior games and, lest we forget everyone’s favourite, deBlob.
Sci-Fi Week from Humble
For some reason, it’s Sci-Fi week over at the Humble Store right now, so why not celebrate by picking up a spacey-type game like No Man’s Sky, Elite Dangerous, Rebel Galaxy, or even try your luck with EVE Online. Everything is up to 75% off while the sale is on.
Official Dark Souls ring replicas
I suppose it was only a matter of time before things from the Dark Souls franchise found their way into our world, I just didn’t expect it to necessarily be a set of rings first. If you’ve found yourself dying to own a real-life version of Havel’s Ring, among others, you’re now in luck. As long as you’ve got a bunch of money burning a hole in your account, it can be yours, thanks to First4Figures’ official Dark Souls jewellery collection.
Humble Micro Jumbo bundle
In what must be one of the site’s most confusingly named bundles to date, Humble is currently offering the Micro Jumbo Bundle. This one puts together a bunch of smaller indie titles and offers them up dirt cheap. Honestly, this bundle is worth grabbing for Pony Island and Devil Daggers if nothing else, though. Hours of fun there for a handful of coins.
Pay what you want:
Oh, Sir! The Insult Simulator
Space Pilgrim Episodes 1-4
Pay more than the average:
Who’s Your Daddy?
Town of Salem
Oh, Sir! The Hollywood Roast
Save £150 / $250 on an MSI gaming laptop
Those on the search for a quality gaming laptop may just want to check out this offer from GearBest. Using code MSI1252 at checkout, you can save over £150 / $250 on the cost of a 15.6-inch MSI gaming laptop that boasts a 1050Ti graphics card, 8GB RAM and an i7 processor. It also comes with free international shipping and a one year international warranty, too, in case you were concerned.
Final Fantasy Weekend from Humble Store
Last but not least for the worldwide deals, Humble is offering up a healthy dose of Final Fantasy games on PC with up to 50% off this weekend. The Final Fantasy Weekend sale ends, rather predictably, at the end of this weekend, so get in there and buy a fourth copy of Final Fantasy 7 while you can.
£10 off Sennheiser HD471G over-ear headphones
Entering the conveniently rhyming promo code ‘SENN10’ during checkout at Zavvi will get you an extra £10 off the price of these Sennheiser HD471G closed over-ear headphones. That means you’ll be paying just shy of £40, which is a bit of a steal for Sennheisers.
Philips Noise-Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones half price
If you’d prefer to go wireless entirely, Argos is offering up a set of Philips’ extra luxurious Bluetooth headphones with Noise-Cancelling technology for half price this week. Head to the site and you can pick up a pair for £39.99 for a limited time.
Amazon Fire HD 6-inch tablet
As Amazon moves away from producing the smaller variations of its Fire HD tablet computers, Tesco Direct is stepping in to offer up the remaining stock at a cut price. Head over to Tesco’s eBay outlet and you can grab a brand new Fire HD 6-inch version for £37.50 while stock lasts. You’ll get a year warranty with that, too.
£79 off Sennheiser 7.1 gaming headset
We’ve already been over the whole ‘Sennheiser make quite good audio equipment’ stuff with that last deal, so what you need to know about this PC gaming headset is that it’s currently discounted by £79, it’s 7.1 surround capable and it’s very nice to look at as well.
5 For £30 Blu-rays from Zavvi
Movies are nice. If you’re the type to like your general cinematic intake to be of the high-definition variety and you’ve got yourself some form of Blu-ray player to faciliate that, check out Zavvi’s current range of Blu-rays on offer in a ‘5 for £30’ bundle set. There’s over 300 titles to pick from but just trust me and get Kubo and the Two Strings at least once in your set.
Prey for $25
The spooky, largely narrative-driven and alarmingly difficult game that is Bethesda’s Prey saw a release mere months ago but that doesn’t stop it from being available to buy right now for only $24.99. If you’ve been even remotely curious on this one, there has quite literally never been a better time to give it a try.
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.
