Jelly Deals roundup: Humble's Best of 2016 sale, The Last Guardian, Abzu, and more

Yet another chance to get Sleeping Dogs for cheap.

A note from the editor: Jelly Deals is a deals site launched by our parent company, Gamer Network, with a mission to find the best bargains out there. Look out for the Jelly Deals roundup of reduced-price games and kit every Saturday on Eurogamer.

We're a week or so removed from that big Nintendo announcement and, like clockwork, the new Nintendo boxes are beginning to sell out. Fortunately, we've got another week's worth of deals on a whole range of things to check out, including a whole host of PC download deals thanks to places like Humble Bundle. Time to dig in and see what's been on offer this week.

Of course, if you already nabbed a Nintendo Switch pre-order and want to keep track of the cheapest ways to get the games and accessories for launch, we've got you covered at Jelly Deals. Feel free to visit, say hi.

Like always, we've got a whole new batch of stuff to check out this week, so let's get to it. As is the norm, 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.

UK & US Deals

We're only a few weeks into 2017, but the folks over at Humble Bundle have really gone into overdrive with the amount of ridiculously good bundles and discounts they're offering. Humble has even gone to the extent of gathering up all the best games that featured in bundles through 2016 and made a brand new bundle just for them. The 'Best of 2016' bundle lets you get your hands on up to seven of the best games from previous bundles.

Humble didn't stop there, though, oh no. If you happen to subscribe to the site's 'Humble Monthly' service, you already know that this month's big-deal game that you'll get for your money is a copy of XCOM 2. If you don't already subscribe, this means that you can get your hands on XCOM 2 for only £10 / $12 by signing up this month.

Three weeks into the year, and we're onto the third of GOG's weekly sales, shockingly enough. This week is mostly focused on space exploration sims and strategy titles. Ashes of the Singularity, Galactic Civilizations, Offworld Trading Company and Sins of a Solar Empire are all featured, amongst others with up to 75% off for the next few days.

Not to be outdone, Bundle Stars is bringing back its Dollar Dash sale for a third time. If you weren't around for the previous sales, the Dollar Dash range means you can take your pick of a bunch of Steam keys for just $1 - or £1, if you're in the UK, because exchange rates are a cruel thing. If you want more than one game, you'll get a discount when picking up four or eight, which is also neat.

Games you can take your pick from include Lucius II, Skullgirls, Stealth Inc 2, Postal 2, Skulls of the Shogun, Super 3D Noah's Ark and more.

Insomniac Games' 2D underwater action-adventure thingy was released last year and reportedly based on Irish folklore. It's pretty, to say the least, but flew under the radar of a whole lot of people upon its release last summer. If you feel like giving it a try and just happen to be an Xbox One owner, you can pick it up extra cheap. Xbox Live Gold members can grab this one for £6 / $7.50 for a limited time.

Hey look, Humble is back with another discounted game that made this week's list. I told you they were taking no prisoners this year. This deal is on the infamously colourful and distinctively anime-influenced Tales of Symphonia. The PC version of this (a Steam key) can be bought right now for £3.74 / $4.99 for the next week or so.

As of today, Sony has added a few extra games to its PSN January Sale. Most notably, Jonathan Blow's epic puzzler The Witness is down to £11.99 right now, from its regular pricing of £29.99. This one made several Game of the Year lists last year and is worth checking out if only for the landscapes, especially at that price. It's currently £11.99 but may be on offer today in other territories, so your mileage (and currency) may vary.

While we're on the subject of recent PlayStation Store sales, some of the other recent updates to the PSN January Sale are worth talking about too. Some of the below prices are with the additional PS Plus discount applied, and in British pounds sterling, so your local currency and experience may be slightly different. That being said, here are some highlights:

Over at Amazon UK, you can grab yourself a Uplay code for Ubisoft's stunning action adventure Child of Light on PC for only £2.99. Inspired by classic RPGs, the game utilises an active-time battle system that Final Fantasy fans will be familiar with. On top of that, the game features a stunning art style and a soundtrack to match. Plus, it'll cost you less than lunch.

I can't speak for the actual quality of this 49-inch 4K Sharp TV, so take this with a grain of salt, to say the least. That being said, it's a decently sized 4K smart TV for £349.99, which in this world of PS4 Pros and upcoming Xbox Scorpios might be worth a look.

Last month, The Last Guardian took a sheer drop in price from its regular £45 price point down to £25, and proceeded to sell a whole bunch in the days just prior to Christmas Day. If you missed out on that deal, ShopTo is currently discounting the game back down to £24.85, so consider this your second shot at grabbing a copy and seeing the mighty catweagle for yourself.

Solid state drives (SSDs to the cool kids) are the more advanced cousins of regular hard drives, delivering much faster speeds at what are normally premium prices. So being able to grab a 480GB SSD SATA III drive for just over £95 isn't something to shake a stick at. It's currently up and available to order from Amazon UK.

If you like your Drakes to be a little less 'Hotline Bling' and a little more 'Tomb Raider with a guy', you may want to check out the final entry into the Uncharted franchise, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, which is currently discounted over at Amazon US, down to $34.99 for a limited time.

Fallout is one of the gaming franchises that has managed to permeate popular culture simply due to the sheer amount of merchandise produced for it. If you haven't grown tired of the mass of Fallout-branded gear out there, you may want to pick up this official Fallout tin lunch box while it's discounted at GameStop US. It's $7.97 right now, although if you want to pick up a pair, it'll only cost you $11.95 for the two.

There are few games out there that are quite as bizarre and distinctive as the games in the Zero Escape franchise. The mostly-handheld series combines equal parts of visual novel with puzzle solving and Japanese soap-opera to create something of a cult classic among a lot of gaming communities. The PS Vita version of the latest title in the series, Zero Time Dilemma, is on offer at the moment for $25.21, although this price has been shifting between $24 and $27 for the past few days, so your mileage may vary.
