We’re just about hitting October now, but before we dip into the big deal game releases that are coming over the next few weeks, we’ve still got time to take a look at some of the best deals that showed up during the very last week of September. So let’s go ahead and do that right here, right now.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor was arguably one of 2014’s most interesting and most enjoyable games. While there’s been no official word of a sequel in the works, considering how well this game was received, albeit somewhat unexpectedly at the time, you have to imagine we’ll be seeing this game turn into its own franchise at some point. In the meantime, if you don’t yet own a copy, you can grab a PC (Steam) copy of the Game of the Year Edition for $7.50 for a limited time right now.
The wonderfully David Lynch-influenced detective mystery adventure Virginia was released last week. If this narrative driven game piques your interest, you can currently save a little cash by buying it through Green Man Gaming for $7.07.
The current Humble Jumbo Bundle on offer contains a whole slew of fantastic PC games to sink your teeth into. If you’re one of the very few people left alive who doesn’t know how the Humble Bundle works, the short answer is this - you pay what you want, you’ll get more games if you pay more and a portion (of your choosing) of your payment will go to charity. This current Jumbo Bundle includes games such as Devil Daggers, RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, Prison Architect, Punch Club, Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders and more.
If Mankind Divided left you needing just a little bit more Adam Jensen in your life, the beautifully cel-shaded mobile puzzle spin-off from the Deus Ex franchise, Deus Ex GO, is available for cheaper than normal right now for iOS devices. Head over to the app store on your iPhone or iPad and you can pick up Mr. Jensen yourself for $1.99 for a limited time.
Alternatively, if Adam Jensen doesn’t do anything for you but Lara Croft is more your speed, you can pick up the Tomb Raider variant of the GO franchise on iOS and Android for the cheapest its ever been, since it’s down to 99¢ on both formats.
If you’re looking to pick up an Xbox One console for a damn good deal, but aren’t fussy about getting yourself an Xbox One S, you really need to see this. Microsoft itself is selling a bundle consisting of a Special Edition White Xbox One 500GB console with Quantum Break, Alan Wake, The Crew and an extra game of your choice from a selection - all for $229.99, which is an insanely good price for all that stuff. Here’s the full list of choices for that fourth game -
- Madden NFL 17
- BioShock: The Collection
- Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
- Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
- NHL 17
- Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2
- LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens
- Homefront: The Revolution
- Assetto Corsa
- Tom Clancy’s: The Division
- Forza Motorsports 6
- Halo 5: Guardians
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Halo: The Master Chief Collection
- Star Wars: Battlefront
Pick one of those games to get for free with this bundle and you’re set.
If the above bundle doesn’t cut it for you, GameStop US is currently offering up a black Xbox One 500GB console with Gears of War Ultimate Edition, Rise of the Tomb Raider and a game of your choice (as long as it’s under $60) for the same price of $229.99.
Right now, Square Enix is offering PC download copies of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for half price, making it $9.99 right now. Plenty of money saved there to spend on other Final Fantasy merch, then.
Whether you’re an avid Razer products advocate or just happen to like getting a decent gaming headset for cheaper than normal, today’s your day. Currently, you can head over to Amazon US and check out the Razer Kraken gaming headset in white, where it is available right now for $44.99, which makes it significantly cheaper than the Razer Kraken in any other colour. I guess white just wasn’t as popular?
Finally, we have one of last year’s biggest games. Call of Duty Black Ops 3 is fast approaching the date where it officially becomes the “previous” Call of Duty game. Until then, you can pick up a boxed PC copy of the game for only $22.27, making it cheaper to buy it this way than on Steam directly.
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!
