This Week's Best Video Game Deals - 16/09/2017

Great deals on Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, ThinkGeek stuff, Wolfenstein 2, and more.

Just like that, E3 has ended for another year. While perhaps not the most shocking or groundbreaking of Electronic Entertainment Expos in history, we at least got to see a relatively plentiful amount of new things in a variety of forms - from Wolfenstein 2 to Super Mario Odyssey. Now that all that excitement is more or less finished for another year, we've got a moment to take a look back on the last week's worth of the best games deals and offers around. Let's begin then, shall we?

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

Humble is upping the ante when it comes to its Monthly subscription service. Previously, a Humble Monthly subscription would get you a stack of Steam keys at the end of each month with a big headliner game up for grabs at the start of each month. Now, the same $12 / £10 service will get you that along with the Humble Trove - a new ever-growing vault of DRM-free games that Humble Monthly members can get. Here's what you can get in the Trove right now:

  • Dustforce DX
  • Volgarr The Viking
  • Starseed Pilgrim
  • Strike Suit Zero
  • Cat Girl Without Salad
  • Trine Enhanced Edition
  • Shelter
  • Copoka
  • Elaphant in the Room
  • Gunmetal Arcadia Zero
  • Spoolside
  • Keyboard Sports
  • Yojimbro
  • Kimmy
  • Oh, Deer!
  • Uurnog
  • Jawns
  • A2Be

Most likely, you will have heard of a few of those while the majority are indies and Humble Originals that you may not have given a chance without getting free access to, which is neat.

GOG's bringing its Summer Sale to a close with what can only be described as a big summer blowout.

Starting Friday 16th June, you can also grab a free copy of Fantasy General from just because they're nice folk. Head over to the site and grab a copy while you can.

Now that E3 is coming to a close, there's a limited amount of time less to take advantage of Ubisoft's own 'Crazy E3 Sale' (their name, not mine) which features some fairly notably discounts of up to 75% across the store. That includes things like The Division, which is down to £13.60, Ghost Recon Wildlands for £26.79, Watch Dogs 2 for £19.25, and more.

As we mentioned previously on Jelly Deals, right now you can cash in 100 Uplay points (the kind you earn by completing in game objectives in Ubisoft games) and get a 20% off voucher that can be used on anything in the Ubisoft Store. That includes the upcoming Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle game, making it the cheapest way to get that game, as well as Far Cry 5, Assassin's Creed Origins and more.

In order to get your voucher, you'll need to head over to this site and log in with your Uplay account, hit the big button to cash in 100 Uplay points and copy the voucher code you'll receive into the checkout of your Ubisoft store purchase, which will get you your discount.

One of the highlights of this year's E3, for me at least, was the official unveiling of Wolfenstein: The New Colossus. If the eight-minute-plus trailer wasn't enough to get you into this game, then perhaps the 60s-throwback Collector's Edition will. Featuring an Action Man-esque figure of BJ Blazkowicz among other trinkets, this thing is in limited stock and up for pre-orders already, for those interested. It'll cost you £89.99 in the UK and $99.99 in the US.

If you're in the UK, you can head over to GAME to get yourself a pre-order on this edition, where it'll cost you £89.99.

Over in the US, you can pick up a copy of the game on all three formats from GameStop US.

For some reason, ThinkGeek is currently celebrating the 30th anniversary of the movie Predator by putting a whole stack of mostly unrelated merchandise and gifts on sale with up to 60% off. Sure, why not. That does mean, however, that you can pick up things like a Nuka Cola mini fridge, Klingon Monopoly, a wearable Mega Man helmet and other collectibles with some nice discounts. This sale ends June 19th.

Over at the US Nintendo eShop, you can grab a bunch of downloadable titles for 3DS and Wii U with up to 50% off. That includes big titles like Super Smash Bros, classics like Super Mario Galaxy and indies like Boy Boy. This ends on June 20th.

You may have missed this one in all the E3 excitement but not only is Super Mario Odyssey confirmed for release on October 27th this year, but if you feel like pre-ordering the game directly through Nintendo's UK site, you'll get a wearable replica of Cappy the hat for your troubles, too. The boxed game and cap together will cost you £49.99.

If you'd rather forgo the marginally unsettling sentient hat altogether, you can pre-order the game on its own cheapest over at ShopTo right now, where it will cost you £42.85.

If you have somehow made it all the way until now, halfway into 2017, without owning Rocket League or you just fancy picking it up on Xbox One in addition to all those other formats you own it on, this one is for you. You can get a free copy of Rocket League on Xbox One right now when you pick up a 3-month Xbox Live Gold membership for £14.99.

If you're on the Sony side of the divide, you can save some cash on PlayStation Plus this week, too. ShopTo is currently offering a 12 month PlayStation Plus subscription for only £27.85. That's only for a limited time, however, you get in there quick.

If you can see yourself picking up a copy of Splatoon 2 when it launches in about a month's time, know that you can pre-order a copy at the cheapest price around over at SimplyGames, where entering the imaginative code SPLATOON5OFF during checkout will knock a fiver off the price, bringing the cost down to £39.85 for a limited time.

Now that we've gotten all that Xbox One X business out in the open, there is at least a small chance you've begun considering a purchase of a 4K television. If that's the case, you can check out Argos' site where you can grab this 58-inch LG 4K LED Smart TV with £73 off when you enter the code TVSAVE at checkout. That brings the price down to £566.10 which, while still not cheap, isn't a bad price for a 4K set of that size.

I'll be honest, while I know a minimal amount about this Harman Kardon SoundSticks III 2.1 PC speaker set, they have received a startling amount of positive reviews and praise from the realms of the internet. The set is currently down from £110 to £63 and available for Click and Collect from Currys stores, if you fancy it.
