I am absolutely unashamed to say that I spent a good portion of this week playing relatively new rogue-lite platform action thingy Dead Cells. If you haven't checked that game out by now, and you enjoyed Rogue Legacy, I'd suggest you check it out. If that's not your thing, perhaps you'll find something new and awesome to play in this roundup of the week's best gaming deals. Let's check those out, shall we?
This week, we've got deals that'll work in the US as well as deals that'll work in the UK. Then, to be even crazier, there are some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places.
UK & US Deals

Not the least of which, you'll notice, is Frog Fractions 2 if you fancy it. Westerado: Double Barreled and Volgarr The Viking are also definitely worth a look.

This week's brand new release of Rising Storm 2: Vietnam sees the Red Orchestra series move into new territory. The game features 64-player online matches and for the week of launch, the Digital Deluxe is currently seeing a 10% discount, bringing the price down to £20.69 / $26.99 / €25.19 for the next few days. Time to get the Creedance Clearwater Revival out.
One more into the Humble breach, my friends. This time, to take a look at the just-updated range of Sonic The Hedghog titles that are all up to 75% off for a limited time. This includes the superb original Sonic games for chump change as well as some of the more questionable titles in the franchise. Also, for no apparent reason, the original two ToeJam & Earl games are thrown in for 99p / $1.24 / €1.12 each, although I'm certainly not going to complain about another excuse to visit Funkotron.
Some of what's on offer:
- Sonic the Hedgehog for 99p / $1.24 / €1.12
- Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for 99p / $1.24 / €1.12
- Sonic 3 and Knuckles for 99p / $1.24 / €1.12
- Sonic Generations for £3.74 / $4.99 / €4.99

If you're planning on building a new gaming PC or just happen to have a big ol' stack of cash hanging around, you could throw it directly at a brand new graphics card, if you like. At NewEgg's eBay outlet, you can pick up the monstrously powerful GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB graphics card with $65 off at the moment. That still means it'll run you a mean $634.99 but hey, at least the delivery is free.
If you have a particular fondness for robots, creepy moon men or pseudo-philosophical games that take the internet by storm, it sounds like you'll take a liking to Nier: Automata. Conveniently, it's reduced down in price at Amazon US right now, too, so it'll only cost you $39.99 on PS4 for a limited time.
Somehow, it's been over a year since Street Fighter 5 officially launched and while the game was, to put it nicely, "barebones" back then, it's seen a good chunk of patches, balances and downloadable content since then. However you feel about it, if you've waited on picking up a copy, it's currently reduced to $19.99 at Amazon US as a downloadable PS4 title.
Can't quite wait until later this year for Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite to show up? You may just want to head over to Amazon US right now, where you can grab yourself a downloadable PS4 copy of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for only $14.99. As a nice bonus, you'll get a fighting game featuring Wolverine and other X-Men, something that it looks like Infinite will be lacking.
A week on from Dishonored 2 being reduced to £10, Tesco has come out swinging with an even better offer - £9 for Dishonored 2 on Xbox One or PS4. Sure, it's only marginally cheaper but this one is in stock and hopefully it will last longer than last week's Amazon UK stock did.
Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers is about a week old now and it has certainly come under fire for being, let's call it pricey. It's probably no surprise, then, that some retailers have already taken to discounting the game mere days after its launch. It's currently cheapest over at Tesco, where you can grab a boxed copy of the game for £28 currently.
Bulletstorm was re-released earlier this year and dropped in price pretty swiftly afterwards. The Full Clip Edition is currently down to £23.99 on Xbox One and PS4 over at Argos and if you're lucky, you might even get that Duke Nukem bonus content in the box. Wouldn't that be nice.
- Bulletstorm Full Clip Edition on Xbox One for £23.99 from Argos
- Bulletstorm Full Clip Edition on PS4 for £23.99 from Argos
Pour one out for IO Interactive and celebrate one of last year's absolute best games by grabbing the entire Hitman first season in a fancy steelbook case for £20 on either Xbox One or PS4 over at Tesco right now. Boy, I hope they get to keep making this series.
- Hitman Complete First Season Steelbook on PS4 for £20 from Tesco Direct
- Hitman Complete First Season Steelbook on Xbox One for £20 from Tesco Direct
Look, there are only so many ways I can express that Yakuza Zero is one of my favourite games of the year so far and in my opinion you really, really should play it. There are very few games out there that allow you choose whether you're going to take down a family of gang members or spend the entire night at a Karaoke bar, after all. It's down to £24.99 at Argos right now which is, frankly, a steal.
The Disney Infinity series, may it rest in peace, gave us all an excuse to have a lot of tiny stylized Disney character figures on our desks. If nothing else. Star Wars characters, Marvel characters and more are all represented and if you missed out on getting yourself a tiny Boba Fett back in the day, you can head to Toys R Us' website, where a whole range of them are discounted to £2.99 or £2.49 while stock lasts.
Arguably the best deal on a PlayStation 4 Pro console right now is over at Tesco Direct. Using the £20 off code (which expires June 6th, FYI), you can get yourself a PS4 Pro 1TB console along with a copy of Horizon Zero Dawn for £329.99. Not a bad deal at all, considering Horizon is built to take advantage of the PS4 Pro specifically.
Over on the Xbox side of the fence - and I'm going to refrain from making a 'grass is greener' pun - there are a couple of superb value bundles that'll get you an Xbox One console and a stack of games for cheap. Specifically, at GAME, you can grab an Xbox One S with FIFA 17, Gears of War 4, Halo 5, Injustice 2 and a 2 month NOW TV Movies pass, all for £209.99.
- Xbox One S 500GB with FIFA 17, Gears of War 4, Halo 5, Injustice 2 and 2 months NOW TV Movies pass for £209.99 from GAME
If that doesn't strike your fancy, you can grab an Xbox One S console with Forza Horizon 3, Gears 4, Overwatch, an extra wireless controller and a £20 Argos voucher, all for £219.99 instead.
- Xbox One S 500GB Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, Overwatch, extra wireless controller and £20 Argos voucher for £219.99 from Argos
It's not every day that a decent PC monitor gets a £50 discount, so it's worth noting that over at Ebuyer, you can pick up this 27-inch Asus IPS frameless 1080p monitor for £149.98, which coincidentally is the lowest price it's been available for so far.
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.
