Jelly Deals roundup: Prey, Injustice 2, Humble's Spring Sale and more

Plus, fancy Nintendo shirts.

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've got all of that Destiny 2 excitement out of the way, and somehow I have yet to see anyone make a "boots on the moon" joke. Nevertheless, it's time again to check out what the previous week had to offer in terms of deals and stuff. So let's get right to that, 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

While we're talking about Humble, the site has gone and added a bunch more titles to its already jam-packed Spring Sale offering. This includes titles from Sega, Activision and Capcom among others. Here are some highlights:

Spring Sale from Humble Store

GOG.com continues its ongoing quest to put every game in existence on sale at some point with another fresh set of offers in a Weekly Sale. This time around, you can find a whole bunch of adventure games among the lot including Resonance, Primordia, Gemini Rue and Shardlight. They're available from as little as £1.39 / $1.66 / €1.59, too.

Not content with appearing in the news this week because of its decision to host its own E3 conference, Devolver Digital is having itself a Publisher Weekend sale on Steam, with up to 90% off. That means Fork Parker and co. have you covered when it comes to games like Shadow Warrior, Hotline Miami, Enter the Gungeon and more. It also includes Luftrausers and, in my humble opinion, anything from Vlambeer is worth owning. Here are some highlights from what's on offer:

  • Enter the Gungeon for £5.49 / $7.49 / €7.49
  • The Talos Principle Gold Edition for £10.26 / $13.63 / €13.63
  • Hotline Miami 1 and 2 pack for £5.99 / $7.99 / €7.99
  • Shadow Warrior 1 and 2 pack for £23.15 / $27.42 / €25.35
  • Stories Untold for £5.24 / $7.49 / €7.49
  • Reigns Collector's Edition for £2.16 / $2.96 / €2.96
  • Downwell for 99p / $1.49 / €1.49
  • Gods Will Be Watching for £1.74 / $2.49 / €2.24
  • Luftrausers for £1.74 / $2.49 / €2.24

Somehow, the news of Uniqlo partnering with Nintendo for a T-shirt design competition completely slipped me by. That said, the range of winners has gone up on Uniqlo's website to buy now and I already suckered myself into picking up at least two of these. Each shirt is priced at £12.90 / $14.90, so head over and take a look. That Donkey Kong shirt is a personal favourite. That said, be aware that the stock appears to be selling quite quickly.

Mount and Blade is currently up on offer from GOG.com for the low, low price of absolutely nothing. If you like your multiplayer battles to be of the Medieval variety and you happen to like free things, head over to the site and grab a copy while the offer is on.

UK Deals

Let's start the UK deals section off with a bafflingly good value Xbox One S bundle from ShopTo. Head over there via the link below and you can get yourself an Xbox One S 500GB console with FIFA 17, Halo Wars 2, Gears of War 4 and a three-month Xbox Live Gold membership, all for £199.85. That's insanely cheap for the amount of stuff you get, so odds are good that stock is limited on this one.

Alternatively, you can grab an Xbox One S 500GB with FIFA 17, Halo 5, Gears of War 4, Injustice 2 and a 2 month NOW TV pass, all for £209.99 from GAME this weekend.

Now, I for one have spent the last few weeks playing through Prey and have been quite enjoying it, so it's a tiny bit distressing to see the game get discounted quite severely a matter of weeks after launch. That being said, if you waited to get a copy of the game, you can get the fancy version that comes with a steelbook and soundtrack from GAME for only £29.99.

Look, I know we're all jumping up and down about the newly announced Splatoon-inspired neon Joy-Con pair (seriously, the Pink and Green look ace on Joy-Con controllers) or the Arms-inspired luminous yellow ones, but let's take a moment to check out this set of the original Neon Red/Blue Joy-Con, which are currently about £15 off at Amazon UK, costing just shy of £60.

As far as throwback 3D platformers go, there are few as divisive as Yooka-Laylee. An echo of Rare's Nintendo 64 games of old, the game was certainly the topic of plenty of discussion when it released earlier this year. Currently, it's down to its lowest price yet: £19.49 on both Xbox One and PS4 at Base.

Injustice 2 came out yesterday, so that's a thing. If you like your fighting games to feature a whole bunch of comic-book heroes and villains and you also prefer the Batman types to the Spider-man types, you might want to pick up a copy. The cheapest price around right now is over at Base, where you can get the game along with its Darkseid DLC for £35.85.

The space-marine-themed real-time strategy sequel that is Halo Wars 2 has been discounted all over the place this week. Not the least of these is the version you can get from GAME, which comes with some extra DLC including additional leader Kinsano, all for £19.99 for a limited time.

There's not a whole lot I can write about external hard drives that would qualify as insightful or massively entertaining so, instead, I'll focus on pointing out that these Seagate Backup Plus external drives are discounted over at Amazon UK right now, with 1TB drives starting at £49.99. Ooh look, that one is red.

If you don't already own it, it's time to witness the Black and Chrome edition of Mad Max Fury Road. The Blu-ray set that contains both the full colour version as well as the stylised 'Black and Chrome' version is currently down to £10 over at Amazon UK and is absolutely worth that.

US Deals

The absolutely wonderful Titanfall 2 has seen no shortage of discounts since it launched at the end of last year. If you somehow don't already own a copy, you can grab the Deluxe Edition on Xbox One or PS4 over at GameStop for just $19.99 right now. That's an almost criminally low price for this one. Play it, you heathens!

Amazon US is currently taking $50 off the price of this LG 32-inch IPS monitor. That brings the price down to just under $200. If you're looking for a decent second screen, this might be worth checking out.
