Best PC gaming deals of the week

best-pc-deals-header-4

Well, that was E3. Another year down, and it feels like a good one. Let’s cap the week off with another roundup of the week’s best gaming deals to check out – and now, excitingly, I can talk about the Yakuza series, so that’s nice. Everything becomes a PC game eventually.

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

GOG Summer Sale

The GOG Summer Sale comes to an end this Sunday and to mark its closure GOG have sent us 350 game keys to give away. To be in with a chance of winning, follow the link below and enter.

Elsewhere on GOG’s site, they’re celebrating the unveiling of Cyberpunk 2077 with a celebration of the genre itself. A whole bunch of cyberpunk-tinged games are up for grabs with big discounts.

Build your own 2K bundle

Over at Humble, you can build yourself your very own 2K bundle out of a variety of – you guessed it – 2K games, from Bioshock to Spec Ops The Line. Add three or more games to a bundle and you’ll start to get bigger savings, too.

yakuza grown ups

I cannot tell you how excited I am that the Yakuza series is making its way to PC, but you’ll probably be able to tell anyway. The first release, Yakuza Zero, releases this August and you can pre-order yourself a copy of the game for £11.99 / $15.99 from Fanatical as we speak. This will be a Steam key that you can activate right away, by the way. Normally we’d be cagey about pre-order deals, but at least the game’s existence on console means we already knows what it contains – though you’re still gambling on the quality of the port.

This month, signing up for a Humble Monthly account will get you instant access to three titles – Hearts of Iron 4, Blackwake and Portal Knights, alongside a stack of additional games at the end of the month.

UK Deals

razerscohol

While Razer Blade laptops are quite far from being cheap, the company has recently added a range of refurbished models to its site, meaning you can get yourself a Razer Blade or Blade Stealth and save a few hundred pounds on each. The Stealth, for example, starts at £720 for the 512GB model.

    I honestly distrust and actively despise our new fascination with AI in our homes. I think I’ve just watched The Terminator too many times. I wouldn’t be caught dead with an Alexa echo bollocks in my house.

    • GernauMorat says:

      For me it’s the idea of paying for the ‘privilege’ of having a corporate spying device in your home that is incredible.

      • ZenArcade says:

        Yeah, that is seriously confusing. I hate to come across like a curmudgeonly anti-tech Luddite but this is one trend I’m really struggling to comprehend. It seems… bad.

        • BeardyHat says:

          With you on this. I’m an IT guy and generally in favor and excited about new tech, but there’s no way in hell you could get me to put another (sans my cellphone) listening device in my house.

          I’ll stick with my “dumb” LAN and wifi.

    • Pharaoh Nanjulian says:

      It is entirely mind-boggling. I cannot think of a situation where I would ever think it was a good idea, still less actually go and purchase one. We are already becoming infantilised by technology and it surely can’t be long before WALL-E actually comes to pass. I know people who use GPS to navigate around their home towns…

    • jman420 says:

      I agree 100% here. Its completely mystifying to me. Its bad enough we know our phones are listening even when turned off…but for people to willingly put something like that in their homes…its crazy to me. Someone gave me a google home thing for xmas because I’m the “tech guy’ in the family…that was the only present that got exchanged lol.

  2. Harlander says:

    I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised to find that I’ve played every game in GOG’s cyberpunk sale already.

  3. Darth Gangrel says:

    “What am I doing with my life?” I try not to think about that, lol. Well, I sure ain’t spending time searching for game deals or even playing games, but there are lots of other ways to waste time (like writing this comment).

  4. Uninteresting Curse File Implement says:

    These two Yakuza titles are not the ones I want, sadly, but at least with this news, we can now have all these out-of-context Yakuza screenshots here, and it’s swell.

  5. montfalcon says:

    It’s also worth mentioning that spending money in GOG’s sale will net you two free game keys.
    Spend over £3.59 (or euro equivalent) for a free copy of perennial favourite Sunless Sea, and over £14.19 nabs you a free copy of explore-o-puzzler Rime, which RPS gave glowing praise to quite recently. Both of these amounts are cheaper than buying copies of the games themselves.
    See the promotion on the front page of GOG.com. This extra bonus finally pushed me over the edge into buying Divine Divinity: Original Sin and Firewatch, both of which were already heavily reduced. I also bought Creatures 1 & 2 because I was feeling hungover and nostalgic.

  6. tafoya77n says:

    You can also sign up for a month of XBox Game Pass for $1 for a few more days. If you want to try a bunch of games like State of Decay, Sea of Theives, Gears of War etc but don’t want to commit to buying them it’s a great option.
