Bargain Weekend #2 – Borderlands 2, Uncharted 2 & More

Too many games, far too many.

It’s the time of week where we take a look at a selection of some of the best deals out there. This week is positively overflowing with bargain opportunities to grow your collection whilst leaving your bank manager with enough of your money to blow on his latest easy money earner.

[accordions] [accordion title=”PS3 & Xbox 360″] Borderlands 2 – PS3 & Xbox 360

First up is Gearbox’s highly rated Role Play Shooter for only £19.99 from GAME. The title is available from both their website and in-store at that special price. Last week’s XCOM deal of the week was confirmed as a national deal but there were reports of it not being available in some stores, so it may be wise to call to check availability before making a special journey.

PlayStation All-Stars Sale – PSN

Earlier in the week Sony launched a bumper sale featuring characters from the forthcoming release of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. The sale is excellent but pretty expansive so head on over to the full article to see all the featured titles. Here’s a quick selection:

All Zombies Must Die – XBL

Twin-stick shooter All Zombies Must Die! is on the receiving end of a half price XBL Gold discount making it 400MSP. We reviewed the game earlier in the year, praising it for its local co-op play, although solo or online-only gamers mileage may vary.

Dirt Showdown – PS3

Last week, Dirt Showdown was available for the crazy price of £9.95. If that didn’t grab your attention then maybe £8.06 from Amazon will. Practically giving it away!

[/accordion] [accordion title=”PC, Mac & Linux”] Death Rally – PC

Last year Remedy, developers of Max Payne and Alan Wake brought back Death Rally their 1996 top down racer for iOS and Android and a few months ago it saw a PC release. The title is available from Steam for free, yes FREE for this weekend only. If you decide to buy it you can grab it for the special price £3.99, down from £7.99 for the duration of the free-play weekend.

Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition – PC

Dark Souls has  grown to legendary status amongst its fans, and now everyone else can see what all the fuss is about, for less in the Steam special offer. Prepare To Die Edition brings an all new chapter, new bosses and player vs player arena. You can become part of the Dark Souls folklore for only £20.99 for this weekend.

Humble Bundle and Indie Royale – PC, Mac & Linux

Who doesn’t like great value bundles? This week saw the launch of not one, but two great value bundles. You can check out the details in the full article here, or take a sneak peak behind the scenes of just one of the many titles below.

[/accordion] [accordion title=”Android & iOS”] FIFA 13 – iOS

The self-proclaimed most authentic football game on the App Store has been cut in price from £4.99 to £2.99, you can grab it for your iThingy here.

Humble Bundle for Android 4 – Android

So good we’ve featured it twice. We’re sure you all know by now that Humble Bundle is a pay what you want deal for a great selection of games and their soundtracks. Purchasers get the opportunity to select a customisable amount to go to charity and directly to the the games’ developers. Those who pay over the average will get a bonus title, Machinarium on this occasion too.

Keen bundle-watchers will know that Humble Bundle undergoes a mid-offer refresh, where even more great titles are included with a heavy bias towards people who’ve paid more than the average, so don’t be tight. The bundle can be picked up here.


[/accordion] [/accordions] Don’t forget, if you do see a great value deal whilst you’re out & about or browsing online that you think others may like, you can share it in our forums. Next week sees the launch of what will probably be the year’s top selling title in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, we’re hearing noises that Tesco are offering it for £24.99 when bought with 2100MSP or £25 PSN Credit, if you see any other deals – Share the love.

That’s it for this week’s selection of bargainilicious gaming, fill yer boots!

  1. Do all the sly cooper tie in together? Like carry on from each other, I’m tempted to get the trilogy but I already have one for free.

    Also ridge racer ultimate is it the whole full game does anyone know?

    • I’d say that the Sly games do tie in as much as any platformer sequels do, good games enjoyed em’
      Uncharted 1 & 2 on HDD not to be sneezed at, great introduction for any newcomers to the platform.
      Bit cheeky asking that price for Split Second in comparisson to the other price reductions considering it’s servers have ceased to serve!!

      • Alright thanks might get sky before the vita one comes out then.

        Yeh uncharted 2 is far superior, 1 is mediocre.

      • Good point about S/S
        Although, what a campaign! Anybody interested is probably best to Zavvi it for £9.95 so you can resell it after you’ve done.

  2. Uncharted 1 was listed at £6:.49 but was £9.99. Would have got it at £6.49.

  3. Uncharted 1 is £6.49 on PSN bought it myself yesterday

  4. Borderlands 2 for £20??
    Yes please :)

  5. Ridge Racer Ultimate has the gold and silver passes included which gives you access to download all the extra content for free.

  6. Borderlands 2 is also half-price (£14.99) on PC at Game

  7. Dark souls prepare to die edition is 14.99 on Zavvi.

  8. Really tempted by Dirt Showdown but I have far too many games I need to get their worth out of as it is. Unfortunately, I’ll probably end up skipping it altogether. Really like this feature though, very useful.

    • Yeah same here, bought a ton load of games on steam’s Halloween sale, somehow seems nice to have variety, explore lots of games’ features

  9. Great feature, massive thumbs up! :)

  10. FIFA on iOS is brilliant, btw.
