Best Gaming and Tech Deals of the Week 10/7/16

Jelly Deals presents this week's best bargains. Cheap PS4 Slims, Resident Evil sale and more!

This week, I spent a crazy amount of time taking in the sun, sea, and sand of Forza Horizon 3's impossibly pretty Australia, before taking a harsh left-turn into a grimy, fictionalised version of 1960s New Orleans in Mafia 3. While I’m still reeling from the dissonance whiplash of that, nothing will stop the deals from coming, and thus, we’re back yet again to gather up a few of the best prices, deals, and offers from the past week. Let’s get to it, then.

Oxenfree on PC for $4.99 from Steam

Oxenfree is a 2D horror game that evokes the nostalgic feel old old eighties teen horror flicks. On top of that, it has a beautiful art style and some excellent writing. Essentially, Oxenfree did the ‘Stranger Things’ style before ‘Stranger Things’ was a...thing. All of this is wonderful, since the game is on sale on Steam right now for $4.99.

Pay what you want for the Company of Heroes games from Humble Bundle

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Company of Heroes franchise, SEGA and Humble got together to make the imaginatively titled Humble Company of Heroes Bundle. That means for the next week or so, you can pay whatever you want for the World War II strategy games. Pay more than $10 to get absolutely every piece of CoH content possible. Pay more than $30 and they’ll throw in a T-shirt, just for kicks.

SOMA on PC for $11.99 from Steam

The dark and atmospheric SOMA is on sale for $11.99 on Steam. This game borrows heavily from games like Amnesia and Outlast and wraps an intricate sci-fi storyline around the “oh my god what is that thing, run” style gameplay. It’ll only take a few hours to play through the storyline, but may take longer to get it out of your head.

Shadow Warrior 2 on PC for $34.99 from Green Man Gaming

Next week sees the release of the blissfully insane Shadow Warrior 2. While it’s still available as a pre-order, the cheapest way to get yourself a copy on PC is over at Green Man Gaming right now, where it’s currently available for $34.99. If that’s not enough for you, you should know that Stan Bush (of the animated Transformers: The Movie fame) wrote and recorded a new song just for this game. Now how much would you pay?

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare on PC for $5 from GamersGate

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare has been around for a few years now and if you’re aware of the game, you probably know whether or not it’s your kind of thing. If the idea of an online multiplayer knight ‘em up sounds like something you’d like to sink your teeth into and you haven’t already picked up a copy, it’s cheaper than ever now, down to $5 at GamersGate currently.

Out There: Omega Edition on PC for $4.78 from Green Man Gaming

Out There is an indie game about strategy, survival and space exploration. It’s part FTL and part No Man’s Sky but with its own distinct style, some enjoyable writing and a crushing sense of impending doom. Experience the joy that is Out There: Omega Edition on PC for $4.78 through Green Man Gaming, which is just under half price.

Civilization 6 for $41.99 with Prime Membership from Amazon US

If you’re like me, you’re waiting with bated breath for the release of Civilization 6 while simultaneously lamenting the fact that you will inevitably lose countless hours to it when you should really be doing something more productive. Nonetheless, if you happen to be an Amazon Prime member, you can pre-order yourself a copy and take advantage of Prime’s discount on pre-ordered games to only pay $41.99. Unfortunately, you’ll still have to wait a couple weeks.

Resident Evil Sale from PlayStation Store

Over on the PlayStation side of things, Sony is offering up a sale on some digital downloads of Resident Evil games. Here are some highlights.

PS4

  • Resident Evil Zero - -$11.99
  • Resident Evil 5 - $17.49
  • Resident Evil 6 - $14.99
  • Umbrella Corps Deluxe - $19.99
  • Umbrella Corps - $14.99

PS3

  • Resident Evil Chronicles Collection - $5.93
  • Resident Evil Code Veronica X - $3.99
  • Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City - $3.99

PS3 and Vita

  • Resident Evil 2 - $2.39
  • Resident Evil 3 - $2.39

Notably missing here is the latest re-release of Resident Evil 4, so you’ll still have to pick that one up for full price until further notice. If however, for some unknown reason, you have a burning desire to play Operation Raccoon City again, they have you covered.

PlayStation 4 slim 500GB console with Uncharted 4, Overwatch and Star Wars Battlefront for $309.99 from eBay

In one of the better PS4 slim bundle offers seen so far, at eBay right now you can drop $309.99 and get yourself a 500GB PS4 Slim console along with Uncharted 4, Overwatch and a download voucher for a full copy of Star Wars Battlefront.

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!
