Best PC gaming deals of the week


The internet is currently aflame with hundreds of takes of varying heat levels based on Nintendo’s cardboard gaming venture, but that doesn’t concern us – unless, of course, some hardware company is working on something that involves stuffing your keyboard into a papercraft robot. This doesn’t mean there aren’t gadgets and games aplenty to salivate over in our little corner of the internet, though.

As always, we’ve gathered a batch of the best PC gaming deals of the week (UK, US and other places too) so far. This week: free Carmageddon, cheap Civ 6, gaming laptops, speedy SSDs and our 2017 GOTY.

UK & US Deals

Snap it up while you can, and you can still pick up the remaining games in the series with a 75% discount on each.

    Okay, not to be all ‘NEGAtron’ about this latest act of generosity from GOG but I recently bought the latest in the series and was immediately reminded of how much of a chore the driving has always been in these games. At least at the start every car handles like a shopping trolley laden down with steel weights. For a game that thrives on anarchic happenstances it always seemed a bit of a disconnect that it’s principal gameplay mechanism was such hard work.

    Still, I didn’t have TDR 2000 so I’m happy to receive it, hapless hoarder that I am.

    • Someoldguy says:

      I loved the absurdity of the first and got used to how the cars handled, but didn’t like the changes they made for the second. Still, I’m not going to argue with the bargain price of free.

  2. ZippyLemon says:

    Total War Attila for €10. Don’t mind if I do.

  3. GrumpyCatFace says:

    They Are Selling. Cardboard.

    We are at peak gaming. It’s gonna be a rough year.

    • Crafter says:

      >They Are Selling. Cardboard.

      And it sounds potentially awesome. Honestly curious to see how it turns out.

    • April March says:

      Not a Magic: The Gathering fan, I take it.

      • Servicemaster says:

        It’s like hyper-poker except the return on investment is even worse than gambling.

        MTG is a plague.

    Error Sorry, the promo code MYSTD18A you’ve entered is invalid.

  5. Servicemaster says:

    I really loathe Civ 6 but goddamn if I didn’t put 70 hours into it within 2 weeks. I uninstalled it 3 damn times! The UI is infuriating and the game does a fuck-terrible job of telling you its exclusive rules for placing districts or buildings or apostles or what-have-you.

    But MAN it feels good to win a Culture victory on Emperor difficulty after all the other civs denounced your pitiful empire. I’m about ready to uninstall it again, however, because I went for a Religious victory with Gandhi on the 2nd hardest difficulty when I found out 180 turns later that the most powerful religion gets Inquisitors and I sure as shit didn’t get no Inquisitors. But also some of my cities won’t let me buy Missionaries with faith anymore?? WHY, WHY CIV WHY ARE YOU SO AESTHETICALLY PLEASING YET ARBITRARILY DEBILITATING??!!?!

    • Rainshine says:

      To buy missionaries, you have to have a dominant religion as I recall — if the enemy has been proselytizing you, it’s possible the city has no majority religion. If they’ve converted it, any missionaries you buy there will be of their religion. As for inquisitors, to get them you need to buy an apostle (which can only be purchased in a city with a majority religion, a holy site and temple), and then take the Launch Inquisition action, which uses up the apostle. Then you can buy inquisitors at any city that matches the previously mentioned requirements for apostles. Why they never tell you this…
