Asus GeForce GTX 970 4GB PCI-Express 3.0 graphics card with two free games for £259.99

In the market for a new graphics card? This deal from Dabs is certainly worth a look, as it beats the next best price by around £20. Considering the power you get, there's fantastic value for money at this price, but it's made even better by the fact you get two free games. The first is Grand Theft Auto V, which is great because the PC version really is the definitive release, but the second free game is none other than Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which releases tomorrow. That's around about a £40 saving overall compared to the cheapest deals for both titles, which makes a good deal an ever better bargain. Thanks to fluffykitty79 @ HUKD!

Get Metal Gear Solid V on current-gen consoles for just £35.73

It isn't the cheapest price we've seen, but thanks to VGB's voucher code you can save around £3 over the next best offer elsewhere. We're still waiting on our review code to arrive (*sigh*) but if Jon's preview session impressions are anything to go by - or the many reviews already online - The Phantom Pain might well be the perfect finish to the Metal Gear Solid saga. Cheers to Buzz for the heads-up!

Destiny is currently FREE for PS4! Find out more here

This has almost certainly been done to emulate a similar move done over the weekend by a certain MMORPG, but here' what we know. The Destiny trial previously locked players to a level cap of 7, but that cap has now been lifted. What this means is that everything in the base game is now free to experience, meaning players can take on the Vault of Glass raid and take part in the Crucible PvP without paying a single penny.

Just to clarify - this does not include The Dark Below and House of Wolves expansions, but at least it means you can decide if you want to give Destiny another go, or if pre-ordering a copy of The Taken King is a good idea. We have no idea if this is the same for the Xbox One version, but if you have any joy be sure to let us know! Thanks to Blade3377 @ HUKD!

Animal Crossing: New Leaf falls to its lowest price yet

We know many of you have waiting for this one to hit that magic £20 mark, so now is the time to expand that 3DS games library. It beats the next best offer elsewhere by almost a fiver, which is a significant saving. Perfectly suited to Ninty's handheld thanks to its drop-in, drop-out style of gameplay, the freedom to allow the player to build up the town as they wish to makes it the best and most charming entry in the series... even if it does enslave you to a greedy raccoon, drown you in debt and force you into a life of  menial labour. Thanks to neneromanovagirl @ HUKD!

Pre-order Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U for just £34.85

Here's the cheapest price around for the upcoming Wii U exclusive, which beats the next best offer elsewhere by almost £4. Considering how well its predecessor held its price, this offer of £35 is pretty good going. We've made no secret of our high hopes and expectations for Xenoblade Chronicles X, with its expansive world to explore, monsters to defeat with enjoyable combat mechanics, and added multiplayer functionality. We'll ultimately find out in December if it has been worth the wait. Thanks to Gamer_U @ HUKD!

Dreamfall Chapters is an masterclass in adventure gaming at £17.99

Here's another Humble Store sale highlight, this time for the season pass of the long-awaited Dreamfall Chapters. Three episodes (or Books) have been released so far for the sequel to The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, and it's a must for adventure genre fans. Amazingly atmospheric, filled with thought-provoking choices, and tied together with a brilliantly written narrative - I honestly cannot recommend this enough.

Be sure to check out our reviews for Dreamfall Chapters - Book One: Reborn / Dreamfall Chapters - Book Two: Rebels / Dreamfall Chapters - Book Three: Realms for more details.

Sir, You Are Being Hunted is jolly good value at £1.29

The Humble Store are rounding off their current sale today which has many titles reduced in price, but this one deserves a special mention for a number of reasons. Firstly, it's just £1.29 a copy, which is a superb price for this procedurally-generated first-person survival title where you are hunted by tweed-wearing robots. Secondly, the devs at Big Robot have just added in Multiplayer support, and while the feature is still in its beta phases it does mean you and some friends can try and survive the robo-pocalypse together. Which is just lovely, really. Thanks to jaystan @ HUKD!

Batman: Arkham Knight on PC hits its lowest price yet

With an interim patch hitting the PC version in the near future, now might be the time to take advantage of the low prices, with this listing being the cheapest the PC version has been. It's a shame really, because the performance issues experienced by many PC gamers ruined what was a brilliant end to Rocksteady's Arkham series. For under £8, it's certainly worth keeping in the Steam backlog until the fixes are deployed. Cheers to Buzz for the find!

Grab a free copy of Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones: Humble Deluxe Edition

Fancy spending the Bank Holiday Weekend doing some highly frustrating stealth platforming action? Because you absolutely can without spending a single penny. Humble Bundle are currently giving away a special edition of Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones, which includes a DRM-free version of the game along with a Steam key, some wallpapers, and The Special Edition Soundtrack. We felt Stealth Inc 2 was a good if flawed title overall, but let's face facts here - it's currently free, meaning you've got nothing to lose by giving it a try. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!

The Wonderful 101 on Wii U falls to its lowest price yet

Beating the next best offer by a few pounds, this is the cheapest deal we've seen for The Wonderful 101. The layered gameplay mechanics take some getting used to, but if you can get to grips with it all then you'll find Platinum Games' unique approach provides a colourful and inventive brawler.

Get an Xbox One Wireless Controller for just £32.86

If you're in the market for a second controller (or a new primary one because of rage-fueled "wear and tear") this offer is the best one around. Best of all it features the 3.5mm jack allowing you to plug in headsets to the controller - meaning no more wires dragging across the floor if you want to do some late night gaming - and the new Impulse Triggers that feature vibration during gameplay.

Pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops III on PC for just £22.79

There's still three months to go until the latest COD title arrives, but if you're looking to secure a PC copy ahead of its release this deal is the best around by some margin. So far Black Ops III has been making some rather positive noises, with the multiplayer looking like good fun, the inclusion of 4-player co-op in the main campaign, and the promise of larger maps to accommodate for the increased player count. You can learn more about the changes in our article from earlier this year. Thanks to KarnageCentral @ HUKD!

Get Dying Light on Xbox One for just £20.99

While this isn't the lowest price we've seen for the Xbox One version, this listing is currently the cheapest around by over £3. Best of all, if you're still not sure you can now download a co-op enabled demo direct from Xbox Live (as well as the PSN) to help make your mind up. In our review we called Techland's latest "a diamond in the rough that really empowers you to revel in the design aspects of its zombie-infested sandbox," so to grab it for just over £20 isn't too shabby. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

Well, that was quick. Then again, we're not too surprised considering how good its predecessor was. Having started a Kickstarter campaign for Divinity: Original Sin 2 yesterday, its developers Larian Studios were surprised to find that gamers are willing to throw money at a developer that keeps to their word and makes fantastic games. The campaign has raised over $600,000 so far - beating their target by $100,000 - and there's 34 days left to go.

Will you finally give Knack a chance at £8.95?

Here's yet another example of The Game Collection undercutting their own listing and making it £1 cheaper on eBay. Here's the big question, though - is that £1 reduction enough to feed your curiosity and find out if Knack really was that bad? Matt certainly didn't think so back in 2013, but many have jumped out in defense of the game since then. For £9 you could find out for yourself, or hope that Sony eventually decide to put it on PlayStation Plus, but who knows how long it'll be until that happens. Thanks to Buzz for the find!

Get Killzone: Shadow Fall for £8.95

In a weird move, The Game Collection have decided to undercut the listing on their own website and make it cheaper over on eBay. Still, cheaper is cheaper, and that's fine with us. As for the game, it ended up being more of a tech demo than a definitive FPS experience, but the multiplayer is still a good romp and for just a pound it's definitely worth adding to your PS4 library. Cheers to Buzz for the find!

While we've seen bundles at a similar price in the past that come with a game and / or a small memory card, this deal is currently the cheapest around by about £20. So, if you're looking to experience the extensive 3DS game catalogue on the cheap, or want to buy a device that the kids won't be able to break the hinges on, this is is definitely worth considering. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!
