Great deals on Witcher coloring books, Link amiibo, arcade sticks, and more

Another week has gone by and we're creeping ever closer to the end of the year and all the brand new releases that will bring with it. Later this month, the SNES Classic is said to be going up for pre-order, too, so be sure to keep checking back with us for the exact moment that thing goes live. In the meantime, we've got another batch of the week's best deals to take a look at here, so let's get right to that.

As usual, we've got deals that'll work in the UK, deals that'll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. Let's get started.

UK & US Deals

Time for another Humble Bundle! Well, technically the Humble GameMaker Bundle has already appeared before - several months ago. This bundle proved so popular that Humble has deemed it worthy of resurrecting for another go around. So if you're an aspiring (or hobbyist) game developer, you can grab almost $1700 worth of software for $15 / £12 here.
