Best PC gaming deals of the week

deadly prem

Coming to you from the show floor of EGX Rezzed 2018, it’s your friendly neighbourhood roundup of the best PC gaming deals of the week. This time around, there is a veritable bounty of digital PC offerings alongside some rather nice PC hardware.

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.

UK & US Deals

Steel Series 3

shovel knight

Shovel Knight, I am happy to say, is one of my favourite games of the past few years and the fact that the original game has only bulked up with its transformation into the ‘Treasure Trove’, which features several other stories alongside the base game, can only be a good thing. This edition is currently on sale for £16 / $20 at Humble.

hbuymble strat

Strategy Bundle time! Humble is offering a batch of strategic video games – a lot of which feature the word ‘endless’ in the title – for a cost of whatever you’d like to pay. This one will be live for around two weeks from now.

gaming comics

Did you know there were comics based on Assassin’s Creed, The Evil Within, Dishonored, Dark Souls and Tekken? I certainly didn’t, but they can all be yours with the current Humble Gaming Comics bundle up for grabs.

    I have to say I think Humble Monthly is becoming quite unexciting. It might just be me, but I haven’t much passion for this month’s or last month’s crop of headline offerings. Sadly I didn’t really enjoy KSP, DR4 is apparently meh-to-bad, and Ruiner looks somewhat polarising in terms of audience enjoyment.

    • Beefenstein says:

      Apologies, I recall Ruiner having much more mixed steam reviews but now it’s very solidly reviewed. My bad.

      • Baines says:

        Ruiner’s review situation is kind of interesting. I also remember it receiving mixed reviews. In particular I remember some fairly critical YouTube reviews.

        But if you look at Steam’s history graph, it appears the game has always been Very Positive. Even the first month shows positive outweighing negative at greater than 5:1, while the overall is nearly 10:1.

    • fabrulana says:

      Skipped next month’s Humble Bundle as well. Also tried KSP and it wasn’t for me. Can’t be inspired by the other two…

    • jezcentral says:

      I’m finding the Monthly Bundle a really good way to get games that I perhaps wouldn’t have bought, for a pittance that I just don’t miss. It helps that you get other games as well, not just the headliners. For every dreary Elder Scrolls Online I get, there’ll be a sexy Sexy Brutale.

    • mitrovarr says:

      I dunno. KSP is generally regarded as being a very good game, even if it wasn’t something you enjoyed personally. I’m also looking forward to Ruiner.

      DR4, however, does feel like it only is present in the bundle to prop up the advertised value. On its merits as a game I think it might actually make the bundle worse.

    • mmandthetat says:

      KSP and Ruiner are still a good value for 12, regardless of individual preference. Seems like people are buying into anti-IGN hype since the buyout, but the deal hasn’t really changed. Just another example of gamers taking every possible opportunity to complain.

      That said, I was disappointed with last month’s bundle at first, but I ended up having a blast with Laser League (wish more people played it). If you can’t find at least one game to love in any given bundle, if not several, that’s on you. Not them.

      • Beefenstein says:

        Thing is I bought Lethal League for a decent price around TWO YEARS AGO. And there’s nothing in the bundle which hasn’t already been, isn’t right now or at least won’t soon be heavily discounted. Getting some slapped together ‘curated games’ where you might be surprised does not equal value.

  2. c-Row says:

    The Sea Of Thieves artbook is over 200 pages thick, which means it has more content than the game itself.

  3. dangermouse76 says:

    /r/buildapcsalesuk over on reddit can come up with some good UK deals. You have to be careful with some of the Amazon deal’s as they are not really deals, but it easy to check with other sites.

    Deadly Premonition on sale?
    Hurrr-AAYYY!
