Best Deals of the Week - 8/12/16

Jelly Deals presents the internet's best gaming and tech bargains as we head into the weekend.

Hey folks, and welcome to another week of deals, as found by yours truly over at Jelly Deals. If you happen to buy something from this list, there’s a chance USGamer will see a tiny financial kick-back from each sale, so you’ll end up helping us stay employed too. If you hate everything on this list, that’s okay too.

As always, we do our best to make sure these deals are all active and in stock at the time of posting, but internet deals will be internet deals, and they can disappear without warning when they want to. That means that depending on when you click these links, there’s a chance some of these deals will be gone or prices may have changed. Let’s check out what was on offer this week.

Mega Man Coasters for $14.99 (half price) at ThinkGeek

Okay, let’s get through the most important deal first. This set of Mega Man coasters is currently 50% off, bringing the price down to $14.99. Frankly, I’m not sure who was buying it when it was a full $30, but fifteen bucks is a lot more agreeable. These coasters are replicas of the pixel-art boss portraits from Mega Man 2 and come in a little Energy Tank tin too. It might just be me, but there’s something about them that ticks a real old-school nerd check box in my head.

Slain: Back From Hell on PC (Steam) for $7.22 at Green Man Gaming

Indie PC hack and slasher Slain may have had what we will gently refer to as a ‘troubled launch’ back in March, but the developers responded to the harsh criticism by taking a second look at the game themselves. After a few months of fixes, improvements and changes, Slain: Back From Hell was released to Steam, a new and improved version of the game that received a much more favourable reception. Green Man Gaming have slashed the price of this one down to $7.22 currently.

Spelunky on PC for $2.99 from GOG

If, somehow, you don’t already own a copy of Spelunky for PC, you should fix that right now. Fortunately, while a copy of the game on Steam itself may currently have a price tag of $14.99, are offering the game up for just $2.99.That’s a DRM-free copy of the game too, as you would expect from GOG. Since Spelunky is easily worth the full price, this one is just a bit of a steal.

EVGA GeForce 1060 Graphics Card for $240 using code VCOGOLD16 at checkout from NewEgg

If you didn’t already blow your budget buying multiple sets of those Mega Man coasters, you may want to check out this GeForce 1060, that’ll cost you $240 overall. This mini-profile card is currently being offered up on NewEgg for $249.99, but you can get a discount on that if you check out with a VISA and use the code VCOGOLD16 on checkout. Not a bad price for such a newly released card.

MSI Radeon R9 390 8GB Graphics Card for $240 using code and rebate from NewEgg

Alternatively, a Radeon card might be more your speed. NewEgg are also offering up this MSI Radeon R9 390 8GB graphics card for $275, though by jumping through a few hoops, this card will only cost you $240. Firstly, as above, checkout using a VISA and enter the code VCOGOLD16 at checkout, this will knock $15 off the price right away. After that, you can grab a $20 rebate from purchasing the card and get your remaining cash back.

Gravity Rush Remastered on PS4 for $21.01 from Amazon US

Back to consoles now with this deal on Gravity Rush Remastered. You may have missed the original release of Gravity Rush, given that it was a Vita exclusive. The remastered PS4 version takes everything good about the original release and gives it a nice HD once-over. Amazon are currently selling this one at just $21.01, so it's a bit of a bargain.

New-Style Xbox One Controller using code EMCEMFE28 for $45 at NewEgg

The new-style Xbox One controller features some all-around improvements, including better grip where your palms hold the pad and the addition of bluetooth connectivity. Whether you’re picking one up as second-player Xbox controller or as a new pad for your PC, the cheapest way to get one of these right now is to head over to NewEgg and enter the code EMCEMFE28 during checkout. That’ll bring the price down to a total of $45.

Well, that’s all she wrote for another week of deals, folks. Please keep in mind that all deals, stock levels and prices can change at any time, so apologies if that happens on something you like. As always, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more low prices, deals and offers over at Jelly Deals, or you can follow us over at Twitter or Facebook. See you next week!
