Best Deals of the Week - 9/2/16

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

It’s official, Madden is out. That means video games are back. Time to start keeping our eyes peeled for deals and offers on the latest and greatest as they get released. In the meantime, here’s some of the previous week’s best deals, as spotted by Jamie over at Jelly Deals.

As always, if you like the look of any of these deals, you’re welcome to check it out. If not, no problem. Simple as that. We always try to make sure these deals are all in stock and active at the time of posting, but the internet works in mysterious ways and things can change swiftly, so please keep that in mind mid-perusal.

Mad Max on PC (Steam) for $9.99 from Bundle Stars

Over at Bundle Stars, you can get 75% off of a PC (Steam) copy of Mad Max. The game not the movie. That brings the cost down to a total of $9.99. This offer is only around for a limited time though, and it’s due to end super soon, so if you’ve even remotely thought about trying out the (arguably underrated) Mad Max game, you’ll need to grab this one quick.

Mafia 2 on PC (Steam) for $6 from Amazon US

With the release of Mafia 3 just on the horizon, Amazon have cut the price on digital copies of Mafia 2 on PC. It’s now available for $6 and redeems on Steam. Given that it’s been a full six years since the release of the game, maybe you want to dip your toes into the Mafia style open-world action game before trying out the third in the series when it arrives in October. Alternatively, maybe you’ve never played a Mafia game before and this is a cheap way to get into the series. Maybe you just like buying Steam games for single-digit prices. Either way, you can head on over to Amazon and check out the offer yourself.

Star Fox Zero and Star Fox Guard for $31.64 from Amazon US

Fox McCloud returns in what will most likely be one of the last major releases on Nintendo’s Wii U platform (fingers crossed we’ll be seeing an NX release early next year), Star Fox Zero. When it was initially released, Star Fox Zero was packaged with the puzzle/tower defence side-game Star Fox Guard. Now, you can get this pair of games together for $31.64 thanks to a price cut over on Amazon right now. Personally, I still haven’t forgiven Nintendo for giving Slippy an uncle named Grippy. That’s just creepy, man.

Gears of War Ultimate Edition for $10 from Microsoft Store

If you’re an Xbox Live Gold member (and let’s face it, you should be), you have access to an extra discount on one of Microsoft’s flagship titles, Gears of War Ultimate Edition. While the game is currently listed for $20, Gold members will get a discount when they go to checkout and can buy the game for $10. That’s a great price for the remastered version of Gears and it might be enough to tide you over until the release of Gears of War 4 later this year.

Metro Redux on PC for $7.50 from Amazon US

As a part of Amazon’s current sale on a range of PC downloads, you can pick up Metro Redux for $7.50. For less than $4 per game for both Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light, it’s a good impulse buy if you feel like trying something new or whether you want to gift the Steam keys to a friend who has yet to experience the bleak Russian post-apocalypse that is the Metro games.

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition on PC for $7.50 from Amazon US

Finally, if you’ve never played Sleeping Dogs, then you’re probably missing out on a whole lot of fun you could be having. Just speaking from personal opinion, Sleeping Dogs was a superb blend of serious pulpy crime fiction and absolute ridiculousness that combined to form a super fun and replayable open-world action game. Plus you can dress up like Bruce Lee for some reason. The Definitive Edition of Sleeping Dogs is available on Amazon right now as a Steam download for $7.50.

Okay, that’s all for another week. As usual, please keep in mind that deals, prices and availability can change at any time, so sorry if that happens on any of the above. I’ll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the information super-highway for more deals. Feel free to follow us over at Twitter or Facebook. See you next week!
