Another week has passed us by and we continue to march onwards towards the time of year when itâ€™s acceptable to wear red and green together and be considered â€˜festiveâ€™. Still, thereâ€™s plenty of time before that comes to pass and weâ€™ve got another weekâ€™s worth of deals and offers to peruse.
Over at GamesPlanet, thereâ€™s a sale on some of 2K Gamesâ€™ finest franchises over the next few days. When I say â€˜2K Gamesâ€™ finestâ€™, you should probably have immediately thought of the XCOM franchise and if you did, youâ€™d be right. The whole range of XCOM games are discounted over there, with XCOM – Enemy Unknown: Complete Edition coming in at Â£4.99 while the more recent XCOM 2 is available for Â£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 Â£39.99 price on Steam at present, you can pick up either the standard or limited editions for Â£24.99. If you pick that limited edition version, youâ€™ll get a fancy steelbook case, if youâ€™re into that sort of thing.

EAâ€™s been out there this week showing off new footage of Mass Effect Andromeda and whatever you felt about the new stuff theyâ€™ve shown, thereâ€™s nary a Shepard to be found in any of it. If youâ€™d like to relive the Shepard Adventures of days past, you can pick up the entire Mass Effect trilogy for Â£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.

Itâ€™s a brave new world out there and 21:9 monitors are getting more and more commonplace. If you think youâ€™re just about ready to make the life-altering switch to an almost uncomfortably wide monitor, but not ready to drop upwards of Â£400 to get one, you may want to check out this Ebuyer offer on a 25-inch UltraWide LG monitor for Â£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 â€˜FPS Heroes Bundleâ€ for Â£2.29. Before you roll your eyes and scroll away you should know that, among indie titles like Betrayer and Zeno Clash, youâ€™ll be getting a copy of System Shock 2 with your less-than-three-quid purchase. That game is currently Â£6.99 on Steam and Â£7.79 on GOG and is worth every penny, so getting it (along with a bunch of others) for under Â£3 is a steal.
- System Shock 2
- Fancy Skulls
- Dead Effect
- Zeno Clash
- Xotic Complete Pack
- Dino D-Day

The XCOM seriesâ€™ 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 youâ€™ll get to stare at those dapper suits.

StarCraft IIâ€™s Kerrigan-centric middle chapter, Heart of the Swarm is down to $7.97 over at GameStop right now. Thatâ€™s the price for the boxed version, which makes it significantly cheaper than getting the digital version at present, so if youâ€™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 Collectorâ€™s Edition, which features a 12-inch tall Revenant Statue and Steelbook case. Theyâ€™re selling this edition for under $40.35 on PC, which makes it far easier to justify buying yourself a little demon statue if youâ€™re so inclined.
