Like many others, I have been more or less stuck in a Zelda: Breath of the Wild themed black hole for the past week. Shrine after shrine after shrine has been completed in one of many long gaming sessions. It’s fantastic. Well, except for the motion-controlled Shrines, less of those please. Regardless, there’s another week’s worth of gaming deals from out there on the internet this week, so let’s take a look at the best of the best.
As you may have spotted during the week, GOG.com is having itself one giant Spring Sale right now. A massive amount of games are featured, with up to 90% off some genuinely fantastic titles. If the likes of SOMA for £8.09 / $9.99, Spelunky for £1.79 / $2.24, Hotline Miami 2 for £2.99 / $3.69 don’t do it for you, then just head over to the site itself and check out the full range. There’s almost definitely something here for everyone and if not, there’s a lovely bear to look at on the home page. If you don’t care for bears, here are some highlights.

The folks over at Humble have a nice thing going on - a monthly subscription service that’ll send you a pack of game keys each month for the one set price of £10 / $12 a month. Over the past two months, these bundles have included XCOM 2 and Total War Warhammer, so it’s clear that Humble isn’t messing around.
This month, the key game on offer is Jonathan Blow’s pretty puzzler The Witness. You’ll get that instantly when you sign up for the month, along with a stack of other games by the end of the month. The Humble people say that you can cancel a subscription at any point too, which is nice.
Sony is doing its own version of the big blowout sale at the moment, this time exclusively for PlayStation Plus members. If you happen to be one of those people, you can grab a bunch of PS4 games with some pretty superb price reductions. I’ll take this opportunity to point out that Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is only £4.49 and you should own that. Prices here are in British pounds but your local currency should roughly match up where applicable.
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for £14.99
- Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for £13.99 Fallout 4 for £13.99
- XCOM 2 for £22.49
- Bully for £5.99
- Mad Max for £12.99
- Sleepings Dogs Definitive Edition for £4.49
- Hitman Complete First Season for £21.99
- Borderlands Handsome Collection for £8.99
- Aragami for £6.39
- ABZU for £5.59

- Batman: A Telltale Series for £9.99
Not to be left out of the discounted download games party, there are a couple of noteworthy offers going on over at Xbox Live, that is, as long as you’re an Xbox Live Gold member. If you are, you can grab a copy of Mega Man Legacy Collection for £4.80 / $6, Rise of the Tomb Raider for £25 / $20 (nope, no idea what’s going with that price difference) or a copy of The Witcher 3 Game of the Year Edition for £17.40 / $25 for a limited time. There’s even the oft-forgotten reboot of Strider for £3 / $3.75, if you fancy it.
- Mega Man Legacy Collection on Xbox One for £4.80 / $6 from Xbox Live
- The Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition on Xbox One for £17.40 / $25 from Xbox Live
- Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox One for £25 / $20 from Xbox Live
- Strider on Xbox One for £3 / $3.75 from Xbox Live
Clustertruck, if you weren’t convinced by the name alone, is a frenetic, chaotic, madness-inducing platformer in which you, as a player, are stood atop a moving truck and have to navigate your way across many other moving trucks. Sometimes there are other objects, often it gets super weird. In short, it’s insane and fantastic and it’s only £4.39 / $5.99 for a limited time if any of that sounds good to you.
The best example of a boy and his giant robot friend since The Iron Giant, Titanfall 2 is down to only $24 as an Xbox One download from Amazon US right now. That’s an insanely low price for this one and it really, really deserves to be played. Get it bought.
Resident Evil 7 kicked the year off nicely in terms of games that were pleasantly surprising and generally pretty great. If you happened to wait just over a month before forking out full price for this one, you’re in luck - the game is down to $39.99 on Xbox One and PS4 over at Amazon US.
If, for whatever reason, Amazon US changes its price or goes out of stock, the game is also available for $40 at GameStop US.
So VR is a thing now. There’s multiple headsets on the market and freely available to buy and immerse yourself in. The Oculus Rift, as you may have heard, recently saw its price cut by $100 and its Touch controllers were similarly discounted. You can grab either of these from Best Buy at the moment for their new, reduced prices.
- Oculus Rift for $499.99 from Best Buy
- Oculus Touch for $99.99 from Best Buy
- Oculus Rift and Touch bundle for $599.98 from Best Buy
Yeah, okay, this one isn’t a ‘deal’ per se but just look at this thing. This is a 4-foot tall, 2-foot wide Snorlax bean bag chair that’s basically just one big hug. Sure, it’s a bit expensive but can you really put a price on the joy you’ll get from curling up and taking a nap next to a giant Snorlax? Yes, in fact, you can - that price is $150.
With that, we’re done for another week. Keep in mind that deals, prices and availability can change at the drop of a hat, so apologies if you miss out on something you wanted. I’ll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the world wide web for more deals. Feel free to visit, or follow us on Twitter and give us a like on Facebook.
