This week is a fun one. Not only because I get to briefly mention Tex Murphy again in an article (though, admittedly, that is a fairly big factor) but because the deals have been plentiful. Onto Tex Murphy business though – you can get Tex Murphy cheap right now and you should, if you have a weak spot for film noir, adventure games or general silliness.
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.

The Humble Store is currently offering up to 75% off a bunch of Ubisoft titles, featuring everything from Ghost Recon Wildlands with 55% off, to For Honor with 67% off, but no one will mind if all you want to pick up is Steep while it’s half price
This month, signing up for a Humble Monthly subscription will get you instant access to a copy of Dark Souls 3 as well as the Ashes of Ariandel DLC pack, along with a stack of other games once the month finishes out, all of which will cost you $12 / £10.
Microsoft is offering up a bundle on a Surface Pro at the moment. Right now, you can pick up an i5, 128GB model Surface Pro with a bundled in Type Cover and get the whole lot for £749, a saving of over £300.
This 31.5-inch AOC monitor is a bit of a beast, features FreeSync, a max resolution of 2560×1440 and is reduced by £90 this week. That brings the price down to £179.99 while the stock remains there.
Alternatively, you could go for this Acer gaming monitor. It’s a smaller 24.5-inch model but it features a 240Hz refresh rate, a 1ms response time and a very pointy design. This one is down £170 to £379.97 this week.
This set of Sennheiser HD 4.40 Bluetooth wireless headphones is down £40 to £89.99 this week, over at Argos, in case you suddenly develop a need to shut yourself off from the world and listen to the Hamilton soundtrack again. We’ve all been there.
Amazon US has got a sale going on featuring a variety of EA published PC titles. You can pick up some of the company’s most recent releases dirt cheap, but if you only buy one thing, you absolutely should get that $5 copy of Titanfall 2.

If you want to get your VR on in a big way, you can save some cash by getting this bundle of an HTC Vive with the Vive Racket Set and Tracker from the Microsoft Store, where the whole lot will cost you $598 for the time being.
Last but certainly not least, you may have seen by now that there’s a Tomb Raider Barbie doll on the way. If you’d like to own it, you can get a pre-order in right now from the official Mattel website. That tiny pick-axe is adorable.
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.
