Best PC gaming deals of the week

nier automata

Welcome back to another Friday, on which I’m here once more to round up the very best deals and stuff from the previous week. If I can manage it. Twin Peaks ended this week as well and if I’m honest, I’m not sure I’ll ever quite recover from this season. Who can I talk to about that?

Anyways, we’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in most everywhere all at once. Let’s get started.

End of Summer Sale from Humble Store

Tracer Nendoroid back in stock, if that’s your thing

tracer 2

The Venn diagram between people who love Nendoroids and people who love Overwatch is looking more and more like one big circle every day. As such, there are now three Nendoroid figures themed after Overwatch characters – Mercy, Mei and Tracer – the former two of which are well and truly sold out by now. Tracer, on the other hand, has just come back into stock over at Play-Asia. It won’t be in stock for all that long, though.

msi geforce 1050

It might not be the most powerful graphics card in the world, but a GeForce 1050 2GB card for £90 still isn’t anything to scoff at. You can get computer cases that cost more than that.

Now you can own a tiny remote controlled R2-D2 robot slave

Sphero R2-D2

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to have a miniature R2-D2 rolling around your home rather than the real, living pets and/or family you may have, wonder no more! Sphero, the folks who put out that wildly popular smart phone controlled BB-8 miniature a couple of years ago are back with a pair of new robot buddies. The pair consists of a mini R2-D2, which will set you back £180 and BB-9E, whoever that’s supposed to be. [It’s BB-8’s evil dark side twin. –Ed]

Sphero R2-D2 for £179.99 from Firebox

Over at Best Buy right now, you can grab an absolute bargain on a DualShock 4 controller and Wireless Receiver bundle, as the site is clearing out stock of the set for $27.99. DualShock 4 controllers alone regularly go for $40-$50, so being able to grab one along with the receiver to let you play PC games with it is an absolute steal.

Right now, you can get this LG 29-inch IPS FreeSync 21:9 gaming monitor from Best Buy at half price, which makes it $199.99 for a limited time.

    I personally haven’t had any problems with it, but I don’t think Nier has been patched since release, and apparently is very buggy. So buyer beware.

    That being said holy fuck it’s a hell of a game so buyer beware NOT getting it.

    • Jeremy says:

      Someone has created a mod package called FAR that is essential to playing Nier on the PC. It corrects all of the many resolution problems that people tend to have with it. You can get it here.

    • Chaoslord AJ says:

      I “only” had the resolution problems.
      Otherwise its one of the best releases of the year and a great JRPG.
      The bad reception caused by technical issues really doesn’t do it credit.

      Wait, they…didn’t patch it?

      Even if the technical issues are exaggerated, that’s just inexcusable.

        MajorLag says:

        I agree. If you’re going to release on the PC, do it right. If your first release has problems, fix them. I personally never even tried a Dark Souls game after the first one because of how shoddy the port was. You don’t get credit for fan patches either, I’m not giving you money for their work making your product not suck. The fact that a fan patch exists and improves on your work so significantly is evidence of how little effort you put in to your port. Why should I encourage that?

        • wcq says:

          The problem with that logic being, you only gave them money for the bad port (the first game) and therefore discouraged making good ports (the rest of the games).

          Not ragging on you or anything, just playing devil’s advocate.

    • genosse says:

      Definitely get the fan patch, it fixed all technical problems for me.

      That aside, I did not enjoy Nier very much.

      It did not pull any emotional strings (Persona, which I played before Nier did it WAY better. PS4 only I know) and when the story falls flat, the very basic gameplay cannot save it. Don’t buy this for the gameplay.

      I only played through one time and watched the other endings on YouTube. It did not seem that I missed much. My only bad purchase this year.

      Anyway, opinions. I am certainly in the minority, so I hope you have fun! :)

    • JohnH says:

      Nier was patched several times after launch. But none of them fixed the baseline flaws in their game engine/logic. But like it has been mentioned already, use FAR and all your problems should go away.

  2. Keios says:

    There’s also a sale on over on the Humble Store, including a free copy of The Walking Dead Season 1 for the next day and a bit.

  3. Warlokk says:

    Nier is that same price directly through Steam too, no need to go through Amazon.

    For those who haven’t played it but have always kinda wanted to: I wholly recommend grabbing Rise of the Tomb Raider for a measly $12 if you’re on the fence. The story is fucking clown shoes, but it’s stunningly beautiful, runs very well, has a good amount of flexibility in the difficulty, lots of little goodies to find and some cool tombs to explore, er, raid, as it were.

    Best Buy PS4 controller deal is already gone. Shucks.

  6. mac4 says:

    Just to point out again the current Rise o/t Tomb Raider offer at Humble is for the DLC-less original.

    (And, hi, folks. Been lurking here since this spring or so. Great site for getting some idea of whether titles may be for you or not.)

    Free Walking Dead Season One at Humble End of Summer Sale is a game that I love to play and jump free there. My articles : link to computerrepairbusinessplan.com
