Best PC gaming deals of the week

Gamescom is over for another year and we’ve got another batch of the week’s best gaming deals from around the web to check out. That must mean it’s Friday, right? This week gave us a whole bunch of downloadable discounts as well as one of the best prices around for a GeForce 1080 Ti, so read on, dear reader and we’ll check them all out.

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

Rick and Morty Clue exists because of course it does

rickclue

Not even a month after I mentioned Rick and Morty Monopoly being a thing, here we are again, staring at the latest that the marriage of pop culture and consumerism has birthed – Rick and Morty Clue. That’s Cluedo for everyone reading this outside of America, by the way. Either way, this is most definitely also a thing and it can be yours for 40 bucks via ThinkGeek.

    A £700 graphics card is a good deal?? That’s almost as much as my last PC cost two years ago.

    1080 TI deal is no longer available as far as I can see, price is £765.35.

    Wait, what? You can see what’s gonna be in a monthly before it releases? Or am I reading this wrong?

    • Phinor says:

      They show 1 or 2 games from the upcoming bundle the moment current bundle is released. So we knew about Killing Floor 2 the moment August bundle was released. And we will know about October’s first (and possibly second) game next Friday when September bundle releases.

  4. Catterbatter says:

    GOG also just added Quake 4 and Doom 3 to their store.

    • Darth Gangrel says:

      But it’s the BFG Edition. This might have changed or was never true at all, but I initially heard it didn’t play well with mods for the original version and I don’t like playing unmodded Doom 3 when the modded version is so much better.

      • Sakkura says:

        Works well with the VR mod, at least; in fact I think that requires the BFG edition.

        • Darth Gangrel says:

          I have Doom 3 on disc and have good memories from it, but going back I can’t stand more than a few hours before the “glorified key search” fatigue sets in. The Perfected Mod somewhat lessens that. I actually can’t imagine playing the game without that mod.

          Can’t activate the disc-version on Steam by writing the serial code (or whatever it’s called) from the package, so if I want to play the expansion someday I’ll need to buy either Doom 3 again or the BFG edition (to my surprise it’s still available on Steam, unlike Skyrim: Legendary Edition being gone in favor of the *more expensive* remastered version)

    None of the singleplayer Humble Store offers listed are still valid, though you can sort all games by discount to get something similar: link to humblebundle.com

  6. jamesgecko says:

    Don’t buy the 8Bitdo Zero FC30 controller for iOS or Switch. The post is flat out incorrect.

    It’s not compatible with the Switch. 8Bitdo released Switch-compatible firmware updates for the FC30 and FC30 Pro, but not the Zero FC30. The Zero has never received a firmware update.

    It’s also not an iOS MFi controller. Very few iOS games are actually compatible with it. It uses the old 3rd party iCade trick from before Apple made an official controller protocol. This was common back in 2011, but nobody supports iCade controllers anymore. (If you’re curious, the controller connects to the phone as a bluetooth keyboard and sends keystrokes on each button press and release.)
