Time for another look at this week's best deals - and just a few days until the Shenmue remasters hit! I'm unashamed to admit that I'm looking forward to playing through both Shenmue games more than I am most of this year's big releases. Okay, maybe I'm a little ashamed to say that, but that's just me. This week's batch of gaming deals ranges from graphics cards to MicroSD cards, with plenty of things that aren't cards also.
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
For the next few hours, you can get yourself a copy of big brother paranoia simulator Orwell absolutely free from Humble. That's it, no catch as far as I can see, just a free game. The key will redeem on Steam, by the way, in case you were wondering. Fill your boots.
The Summer Sale over at Voidu continues this week, with some brand new games added to the range, all of which can get an extra discount when you enter SUMMER18 as a voucher during checkout. Here's some of what's on offer.
- Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC for £11.50 / $14.99 using code SUMMER18 from Voidu
- Phantom Doctrine for £19.92 using code SUMMER18 from Voidu
- Yakuza 0 for £10.45 using code SUMMER18 from Voidu
- Two-Point Hospital for £15.68 using code SUMMER18 from Voidu
- Shenmue 1 & 2 for £15.68 using code SUMMER18 from Voidu
There's a big set of VR games up for grabs at the Humble Store this week with discounts of up to 75% per cent on the lot. Amongst the range you'll find discounts on Superhot VR, Batman Arkham VR, Fallout 4 VR, Skyrim VR and Star Trek Bridge Crew - one of the only VR games to not have VR in the title.
Now that we're into August, it's time for another fresh set of games up for grabs with a Humble Monthly membership. This time around, you can spend £10 / $12 and get instant access to Sniper Elite 4, Tales of Berseria and Staxel. Then, once the month finishes up, you'll get a stack of other games, too.
As announced during last week's Nintendo Direct, you can now get a pre-order down on the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Limited Edition. It'll cost you £89.99 but the set features a copy of the game, one of the new official GameCube controllers and the Switch GameCube adapter needed to use it.
Graphics cards continue to get actual discounts and price cuts this week, with this Palit model GeForce GTX 1060 6GB card down to £229.97 over at Ebuyer this week. While not the most powerful card around, especially with the announcement of NVIDIA's newest range coming next week, the 1060 will still serve you well.
Another in the ever-growing line of Special Edition Xbox One controllers, the Sport White Edition is out now, and you can get yourself one over at Microsoft's own store. It features a unique design and a "white and mint" colour scheme, and will work on both Xbox One and PC via Bluetooth or USB.
One of the best surprises in recent video game history was that a strategy game starring Mario and his friends made by Ubisoft ended up being a little bit spectacular. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle went on to get a full season pass's worth of content and, if you haven't had a chance to pick it up yet, you can get the Gold Edition (featuring the game and the aforementioned Season Pass) for £31.99 this week.
All you diehard Persona fans out there can breathe a sigh of relief in the knowledge that the previously Japan-only Persona 3 Dancing In Moonlight and Persona 5 Dancing in Starlight are seeing a release later this year. You can pick up the bundle of both games - dubbed the Endless Night Collection - for £74.85 at Base, which is £15 less than the RRP.
Bloodborne, one of my favourite games of the last five years, is also part of the new range of 'PlayStation Hits' - a discounted collection of the biggest-selling PS4 games to date. It's getting an extra discount right now at Base, bringing the price down to £12.85, which is honestly a bit of steal.
If you've been putting off buying an Oculus Rift for whatever reason, you can now get yourself a bundle featuring the Oculus Rift itself as well as the Touch Controllers and a copy of Marvel Powers United VR, all for £399 at Overclockers. You can also finance that purchase, too, if you fancy.
Make Sushi, eat sushi and become a sushi samurai with Sushi Striker, which has seen a discount this week in its boxed Switch form, which is now down to $31.55 at the time of writing.
The latest in the long-running series of Nintendo handhelds with increasingly infuriating naming conventions, the New Nintendo 2DS XL, has gotten a little discount this week, so if you've been sitting on a purchase, you can grab one right now for $140.
GameFly of all places is having itself a 'blowout sale' on a range of what the company is calling 'pre-played' games. Essentially, these are ex-rentals that are given a new case before being shipped to you and there are some big discounts in the range.
Whether you're a Switch owner or you just happen to live in the modern age and will inevitably have to save or transfer data from one device to another, you'll already know the value of MicroSD cards. You can get a range of them right now with big discounts over at Amazon.
- Sandisk Ultra 128GB for $33.99 from Amazon US
- Sandisk Ultra 200GB for $54.99 from Amazon US
- Sandisk Ultra 400GB for $177 from Amazon US
This little guy is a third-party multiport adapter for the Switch, meaning you can play Switch games on your TV without going through the official dock. It's infinitely more portable, features an ethernet port and two USB ports and is available for $36.99 right now.
Over at Best Buy, you can save some cash on a range of Nintendo's finest. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Tennis Aces and Zelda: Breath of the Wild are all down to $45 this week.
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Switch for $44.99 from Best Buy
- Super Mario Odyssey on Switch for $44.99 from Best Buy
- Mario Tennis Aces on Switch for $44.99 from Best Buy
- Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Switch for $44.99 from Best Buy
God of War, arguably one of the year's best games, is down to $45 this week at Amazon, so if you've been sleeping on a purchase of the adventures of Sad Dad and Boy, now's your chance.
Then there's Metal Gear Survive. It might not be one of the best games in recent years, it might even only barely register as a Metal Gear game, but it might just pique your curiosity now that you can buy a PS4 copy for $11. If so, you can grab one at Amazon.
Here's a thing - there's an officially licensed Elder Scrolls cookbook. I had no idea about this one until today and while it's not actually released until March 2019, you can put down a pre-order right this very minute for $35 and guarantee yourself just under 200 pages of recipes from Skyrim, Morrowind and beyond. If that's your thing.
Nendoroids are kind of like the better-made, more articulate cousins of Funko Pops. They also have distinct features, which is a nice change from Funkos. They do, however, tend to be a lot pricier. Right now, however, you can get yourself a little Genji for $37.49.
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.
