New Humble Bundle packs Soma, Lisa, Opus Magnum, and more good games

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll hurl with the latest bargain Humble Bundle, which packs together eight games of wildly different tone but one unifying characteristic: they're all rated "Overwhelmingly Positive" in Steam's aggregated players reviews. Its experiences include getting spooked under the sea in Soma, building alchemical machines in Opus Magnum, shooting mutants in Nuclear Throne, helping people in Wuppo, and giving your very blood…

This year's Amazon Prime Day is almost at an end. At midnight tonight, Amazon's big day o' deals will be over for another year (or, you know, until Black Friday in November), so if you had a look at the deals yesterday and thought, 'Hmm... I could do with a new SSD or graphics card', then you've still got time to pick one up. I know Amazon is…

Get £400 off the Alienware 17 laptop today, plus loads of other Dell deals this week

Back when I wrote about other bits of tech, July was always the month where everyone was desperate to show you what goodies they intended to stuff down your stocking come the end of the year. Christmas in July, they called it, and it was downright depressing. Now, however, it seems to be morphing into more of a Black Friday in July kind of deal, as we…

Humble Store’s new sale is DRM-free (well, with optional Steam keys)

"Should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice, 'We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on, we're going to survive,'" the great patriot Benjamin Franklin famously declared. "They may take our lives,…

Steam’s summer sale opens with a mini-game gimmick

It's time to lash your wallet to the mast again, because these are choppy waters for anyone with a poor grip on their money. Steam's summer sale has started, bringing its usual boatload of discounts across the majority of games on the mega-storefront.

If wishes were horses, GOG’s latest sale would ride

In this hectic modern society, lists are the best way to keep track of desires and obligations: shopping lists, to-do lists, playlists, blacklists, whitelists, hitlists, shitlists... heck, this here is a listlist. It's wishlists that GOG are celebrating today, having launched a sale on 150-odd games and DLCs that they say are among the most-wishlisted items on the store. These include The Witcher 3, Planescape:…

Kane & Lynch 2 is well worth a go for 80p

Psst, hey, you, wanna see something unusual for 80p? Pick up Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days in Square Enix's Steam sale. Made by Hitman folks IO Interactive, K&L 2 may be typical for a 2010 cover shooter in a lot of ways but I still find it interesting for: 1) An aggressively ugly look riffing on uploaded camera phone videos that are over-compressed, blown-out,…

Humble Store launches its own winter sale

Now is the winter of our discount content, as yet another store has launched a big winter sale.

I'm worried.], it's the Humble Store's turn to discount a great many games. Humble's a bit of a cross…

Normally at this point I'd chase everyone around the…

Deadlight free on GOG as lucky dip sale starts

It's never been easier to buy things you don't want. Back in the day, random purchase enthusiasts would tour village fêtes to play lucky dips and tombolas. Hardcore 'luckers' (as they called themselves) would even visit Argos to order random item numbers. Now with subscription services delivering boxes of tat to your door monthly and loot crates offering random skins for video games, it's never…

Buy ’em up: Green Man Gaming summer sale launches

As summer rolls on, shorts get shorter, tops get scarcer, corner shop Curly Wurlys get goopier, and the video game sales, oh the video game sales keep on coming.

GOG’s big spring sale has started, is great

You'd think I should have learned that spring follows winter but no, spring is almost here and here I am surprised again.

Over 500 games are on sale from today through to Sunday, including some real crackers. GOG don't just do old games these…

Kentucky Route Zero, Fez on sale fundraising for ACLU

Kentucky Route Zero, the game so good we declared it our game of the year back when only two of its episodes were out, is currently half-price. That's always worth pointing out, that. Sales from this latest sale will go to the American Civil Liberties Union, joining similar fundraisers with other cracking games. Also joining in are the delightful Fez, frightful treasures from Kitty Horrorshow,…

Bit early: GOG launches Black Friday sale

Black Friday starts earlier every year, I swear. Commercialisation has ruined this heartwarming American family holiday. Black Friday, I'm sure you know, is named after the wide-brimmed black cockel hats the Founding Dads wore to conceal their identities as they shoved for cheap Big Bang Theory DVD box sets. We've already looked a lot of Black Friday hardware and game deals and now GOG have…
