Best PC gaming deals of the week

It’s Friday once again, so I’m back to bother you all with a roundup of the very best PC gaming deals of the week as well as a few extra fun bits thrown in because they’re also pretty good. Most importantly of all, though – on the subject of weekends, does the week start on Sunday or Monday? Is this a question that humanity will ever definitively find an answer to or does it entirely come down to preference?

Feel free to argue about that in the comments, but in the meantime, 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.

catalyst mirror

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst didn’t exactly win over a lot of non believers out there when it released, but at the very least it was a game with a lot of ideas and some serious style. If you never got around to checking it out, you can grab it for £3.99 as a PC download today.

UK Deals

LG OLED 4K HDR TV

Hey look it’s old faithful, the LG OLED 4K, back once more with another discount that brings it down to £1500. This is not the first time this set has seen this discount, but it is still one of the most-recommended 4K sets out there, so any time it dips in price is worth mentioning.

Ghostbusters HQ

I may not be afraid of no ghosts but I am afraid of spending a whole heap of cash on a LEGO set, no matter how great they are. Enter this Ghostbusters LEGO Firehouse HQ set, which currently has 20% off at John Lewis. That’s a great discount, even if the set will still cost you a cool £228.

ghost speaker alexa amazon echo dot

This Destiny 2 Ghost speaker that works with Amazon’s Alexa-enabled devices seemingly keeps getting cheaper and cheaper. At the time of writing, the remaining stock of this one had fallen to just below £16.

US Deals

Massdrop Vast

If you’ve been eyeing up a curved monitor for your PC setup but you like your screens to be abnormally large at the same time, look no further than Massdrop’s current offer on a Vast 35-inch curved gaming monitor, available for $549.99, its lowest price yet. For that, you’ll get a screen with a 3440×1440 resolution, 2ms response time, and a 100Hz refresh rate.

TV shows

Fine, it’s not specifically a PC gaming deal but there is a truly absurd amount of discounted DVD and Blu-ray box sets available from Amazon this week and let’s face it, any excuse I have to mention Twin Peaks and its beautifully made third season box set is an excuse I will use.

Selected TV box sets from $8 from Amazon US

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. I’ll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the world wide web for more deals. Feel free to visit, or follow us on Twitter and give us a like on Facebook.

    I used to be a “week starts on Sunday” person, perhaps just because calendars I saw did it that way. Also it made sense to bookend the week with 1 day either end.

    But I’ve since seen the error of my ways. Certainly for M-F 9-5:30 folk Monday is definitely the start of the week, right ? I’m sure many Christian folk would argue that Sunday was the last day of creation, but I’m Atheist, so that doesn’t sway me.

    • tekknik says:

      Sunday would the the first day of creation, since light was created (hence its name) and Saturday would be the last day and also the day of rest/worship (though many Christians choose to worship on Sunday for some reason)

        In most Christian sects:
        Old testament Sabbath = Saturday
        New testament Sabbath = Sunday

      I’m pretty sure having Sunday as the start of the week is a US only thing. Certainly growing up in the UK Monday was always the start of the week.
      It makes more sense to me that the division between one week and another should come between two days where you’re doing different things (ie holiday on Sunday, and work on Monday), rather than between two holiday days. For people that don’t have work/school/etc. mon-fri I guess it makes less sense.

    TO add a slightly weird one…Sea of Thieves is included in the “xbox game pass”, which you get a free 14 day trial of. So you get the full game, for 14 days. Which seems like a deal to me.
