Best PC gaming deals of the week

Posted on May 12, 2017

It?s time once again to sit back and take a look at the past week?s worth of the best gaming deals from all around the wild, wild web. This week is a particularly good week if you?re a fan of mostly obscure and some probably bad classic PC games that will cost you less than the price of a coffee. Let?s get cracking, 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.

While you?re over there at Humble, you should check out this month?s Humble Monthly offering. With a subscription for $12 / £10, Humble will send you a stack of Steam keys (last month?s set included Undertale, Inside, GoNNER among others). Right now, you can get instant access to spacey strategy sim Stellaris while you wait for the rest of your games. You can cancel at any time too, which is nice.

Sega recently announced that Vanquish (AKA the game where you have rockets on your knees as a form of propulsion) is coming to Steam. It?s been long enough, I?m ready to jump in again. If you?re with me on that one, you can head over to Bundle Stars right now and you can get an extra 10% off when using the code VANQUISH10, which brings the price down to £13.49 / $17.99 / ?17.99

Platinum?s frantic, colourful brawler entry into the Transformers gaming history books, Transformers Devastation, is available right now for just $9.99 as a Steam download. It?s manic, full of primary colours and a bit of a button mash-a-thon. So all in all, pretty damn fun.
