It's May now, which means it's time for the set of games in the Humble Monthly range to switch to a brand new set. On one hand that means last month's games are now unavailable, on the other hand it means a brand new set of games are on offer. If you sign up to the Humble Monthly in the next few weeks for $12 / £10, you'll get instant access to space strategy sim Stellaris as well as a stack of other games by the end of the month.

Over at Bundle Stars, you can pick up a set of eight indie games in one big bundle at the cost of £3.69 / $3.99 / €4.39 for the lot. The range includes recently released point-and-click puzzler Manual Samuel among a few others.

It looks like it's time for another round of discounts on the Steam Link and Steam Controller in both the UK and the US. Over at GAME, you can pick up the Link for £15.99 and the Controller for £27.99 while US readers can head to Amazon US and pick up the Link for $20 and the Controller for $35. That's all for a limited time and while stock lasts and all that jazz.

Sega recently announced that Vanquish (AKA the game where you have rockets on your knees as a form of propulsion) is coming to Steam. It's been long enough, I'm ready to jump in again. If you're with me on that one, you can head over to Bundle Stars right now and you can get an extra 10% off when using the code VANQUISH10, which brings the price down to £13.49 / $17.99 / €17.99

Back to Humble once last time for a couple of the site's freshest offers. Firstly, for a very limited time, you can get a copy of top down dungeon crawler Dungeons 2 completely free. Like, seriously, just go add that to your account now.

After that, stick around and check out the massive Spring Sale that's going on currently. Humble has split the sale up into a few different sections, separated by publisher, but there's plenty of stragglers with big discounts as well. Here are just some of the highlights:

The second LEGO game to grace our list of deals this week, LEGO Dimensions is currently on sale over at Best Buy. You can pick the game up on Xbox One and PS4 for only $34.99 while the Wii U and PS3 versions will run you $29.99 for a limited time.

Whether you're all but done with Breath of the Wild by now or you're just feeling a little nostalgic, you can grab a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD on Wii U for only $15 this week at Amazon US. As if you need an excuse to own a copy of Wind Waker.

In one of the first big discounts on the system, you can pick up a PlayStation VR headset from NewEgg this week with $30 off. That brings the cost down to $369 with free shipping if you feel like giving it a go and trying out the wonderfully weird world of VR.

Platinum's frantic, colourful brawler entry into the Transformers gaming history books, Transformers Devastation, is available right now for just $9.99 as a Steam download. If you like Platinum's games, Transformers or fun, this should be a no brainer.

While you're over there at NewEgg, check out this rather randomly thrown together bundle of Xbox One games. For $40, you can get boxed copies of both Dishonored 2 and Fallout 4 on Xbox One. A good deal, for sure, even if it doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense.

Hyperkin has made a bit of a name for itself for putting out the Retron series of boxed emulators. The company's most recent venture is a NES-themed Retron 1 HD, capable of playing NES cartridges and displaying them at 720p via HDMI-out. The console is available in both NES colour schemes and a more subtle black edition for $39.99
