Deals of the week 10/08/15

Hi all and welcome to our regular feature where we bring you the best of Steam Weeklong deals, Bundle Stars and Humble Bundle! So, without further ado, on to the deals!

Steam Weeklong Deals

It wouldn’t be a Monday without new Steam weeklong deals! There are 112 games available at a variety of discounts. My top pick this week is the solid RTS title Total War: Shogun 2 which is available at a 75% discount weighing in at £6.24 for the base game or £9.99 for the collection including the DLC! Other deals of note are 50% off interesting Visual Novel WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.01 (now £4.99), hilarious looking Mount Your Friends (40% off, now £2.39), Defy Gravity Extended (95% off, now just £0.09!) and if you feel like making games instead of playing them you can grab the GameGuru Starter Pack for 70% off (£6.89). A notable mention also goes out to the Painkiller Complete Pack (75% off, £14.99) because my friends you have not lived until you have loaded a tree trunk into a weapon and fired it at something.

Bundle Stars

Bundle Stars have 16 live Steam bundles this week and there are some awesome deals to be had. Particularly catching my attention are The Banzai Bundle which includes 100% Orange Juice (an unusual take on a board game – on your PC!) and the amusing Cubicle Quest which turns the annoyances of earning your daily bread into a retro style RPG. Also vying for my attention (and of course hard-earned cash!) is the Crazy Machines Bundle which allows you to make all sorts of mad science/engineering contraptions. This bundle contains all of the Crazy Machines games and their DLC for just £1.99.

Humble Bundle

Moving on to Humble Bundle, the main bundle has now ticked round and Jumbo Bundle 4 has been replaced by the Bandai Namco Bundle. Pay what you will to get (among others) PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX+  or pay more than the average to grab more goodness including Ridge Racer Unbounded and (the surprisingly fun) Ace Combat Assault Horizon. If you pay more than $10 you can also grab the highly acclaimed Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition (the Steam store page highly recommends a controller for this one!) and there are more games still to be added!

There is currently no weekly bundle, but you can still grab the Music Book Bundle and there is a new mobile bundle this week in the shape of the Android exclusive Games Workshop Bundle. This bundle features titles such as Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf, and Warhammer: The App on the base level, with other titles such as Talisman Prologue and Warhammer: Snotling Fling on offer if you pay more than the (at the moment $3.57) average. This bundle is also due to have more content added so stay tuned!
