Jelly Deals roundup: Destiny 2, L.A. Noire, Okami HD, and more

Plus, 10% off Humble Monthly.

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.

Another week down, another week of potential Christmas shopping disappears. The deals themselves don't seem to be showing much sign of slowing down, however. With that in mind, let's take another look at the very best deals of the past week.

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's got quite an offer going on right now. Not only is the site still offering what is arguably its best Humble Monthly yet (Dawn of War 3, Quantum Break and The Long Dark in the Monthly for £10 / $12) but if you head there today, you'll be able to get yourself a free copy of Company of Heroes 2. To tie those deals together, by getting your free copy of Company of Heroes 2, you'll also get 10% off your first Humble Monthly. Nice.

In Okami HD, you can be a wolf. Not only that, but you're a wolf that also happens to be a goddess. Specifically, the goddess of the universe, which is nice. You can pick up a PC copy of the newly released Okami HD for £12.79 over at Green Man Gaming.

Another of this week's new releases, the Gold Edition of one of my favourites of the year, Resident Evil 7, is up for grabs in digital PC form for £33.99 for a limited time. That version includes the base game and every last bit of DLC possible.

The console's regular price of £449.99 will currently get you an Xbox One X with Forza 7, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Doom, Dishonored 2 and Fallout 4.
