Featured post

As the sun’s rage has been interrupted all too briefly by torrential downpour here in the UK, video games remain a constant. For better or worse. Possibly worse, all things considered. Either way, however, there’s another batch of the best PC gaming deals of the week to take a look at, so let’s go ahead and check those out right now.

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.


It’s time once more to offer up the chance for you folks to get your hands on some free games. This time around, GamesPlanet has got together with Jelly Deals to offer up a selection of 10 PC titles that you can enter to win. Entry closes at 23:59:59 on Monday, 13th August, so get your entries in while you can.

This time around, you can spend £10 / $12 and get instant access to Sniper Elite 4, Tales of Berseria and Staxel. Then, once the month finishes up, you’ll get a stack of other games, too.

If you’re into giant hardcover compendium-type books that take deep dives into the history and making of classic games – and you have a penchant for JRPGs – you might want to pick up the Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive Volume 1 while it’s discounted to just under $28 this week.
