Another week has passed us by and we continue to march onwards towards the time of year when it’s acceptable to wear red and green together and be considered ‘festive’. Still, there’s plenty of time before that comes to pass and we’ve got another week’s worth of deals and offers to peruse.

Over at GamesPlanet, there’s a sale on some of 2K Games’ finest franchises over the next few days. When I say ‘2K Games’ finest’, you should probably have immediately thought of the XCOM franchise and if you did, you’d be right. The whole range of XCOM games are discounted over there, with XCOM – Enemy Unknown: Complete Edition coming in at £4.99 while the more recent XCOM 2 is available for £17.99.

The infuriatingly titled Total War: Warhammer is on offer over at GAME in its boxed edition form. While the game remains at a steady £39.99 price on Steam at present, you can pick up either the standard or limited editions for £24.99. If you pick that limited edition version, you’ll get a fancy steelbook case, if you’re into that sort of thing.

EA’s been out there this week showing off new footage of Mass Effect Andromeda and whatever you felt about the new stuff they’ve shown, there’s nary a Shepard to be found in any of it. If you’d like to relive the Shepard Adventures of days past, you can pick up the entire Mass Effect trilogy for £12.99 over at GamesPlanet at the moment. Keep in mind, though, that this is an Origin code and not a Steam one, so do with that what you will.

It’s a brave new world out there and 21:9 monitors are getting more and more commonplace. If you think you’re just about ready to make the life-altering switch to an almost uncomfortably wide monitor, but not ready to drop upwards of £400 to get one, you may want to check out this Ebuyer offer on a 25-inch UltraWide LG monitor for £149.99. The monitor itself is an IPS panel with two HDMI ports and a 5ms response time, in case you were wondering.

Bundle Stars are currently offering something oh-so-enticingly called the ‘FPS Heroes Bundle” for £2.29. Before you roll your eyes and scroll away you should know that, among indie titles like Betrayer and Zeno Clash, you’ll be getting a copy of System Shock 2 with your less-than-three-quid purchase. That game is currently £6.99 on Steam and £7.79 on GOG and is worth every penny, so getting it (along with a bunch of others) for under £3 is a steal.

Games included:

  • Betrayer
  • System Shock 2
  • Fancy Skulls
  • Dead Effect
  • Zeno Clash
  • Xotic Complete Pack
  • Dino D-Day

The XCOM series’ forgotten second-cousin, The Bureau, is available as a Steam key from Amazon US right now for $4. Adam may not have liked it much, but it’s at the very least an interesting failure, and four bucks is cheap enough to give it a shot and see for yourself how you feel. At least you’ll get to stare at those dapper suits.

StarCraft II’s Kerrigan-centric middle chapter, Heart of the Swarm is down to $7.97 over at GameStop right now. That’s the price for the boxed version, which makes it significantly cheaper than getting the digital version at present, so if you’re running behind on your StarCraft, it might be time to catch up.

Amazon still seems to have a fair amount of stock left of the DOOM Collector’s Edition, which features a 12-inch tall Revenant Statue and Steelbook case. They’re selling this edition for under $40.35 on PC, which makes it far easier to justify buying yourself a little demon statue if you’re so inclined.
