Christmas time, mistletoe and wine, and here’s me bringing you cheap PC gaming times. I’m not great at serenading you all with Christmas carols, but what I can deliver is the PC gaming section for VGU’s Holiday Gift Guide. This means some of the latest and most popular titles on the PC at a far fairer price than you would find in your local high street store, and you didn’t even have to get me anything in return. It’s the spirit of the season, clearly.
Nothing quite says roasting chestnuts on an open fire quite like a wrestling title, enjoy the highest quality of… wrestling entertainment I guess. Not much else to it, take on your favourite wrestling champions and even make a grotesque monstrosity that you will eventually call your own custom wrestling hero. A relatively new title for the price of a relatively old title.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
Your eyes are not deceiving you and this is not a Christmas miracle. You really can pick up the Summer smash sequel to Mirror’s Edge for less than £10, it didn’t quite nail it as well as its predecessor, but if you’re looking for more of that sweet free-flowing, free running that the original title delivered, but on a larger scale then this is a deal you simply can’t miss. You can now buy this hit for the price of a takeaway, except this will last you longer than an hour and won’t make you feel bloated for the rest of the evening.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
What’s that? The new Call of Duty title for a fraction of the retail price? Of course it is, happy holidays. What better way to spend this joyous season than being locked away in a room, away from your family so you and your mates can kill each other as much as you please in an online warzone.
Why watch the Queen’s speech when you can shout at children over the internet and inform them that you had sexual relations with their mother due to their poor skill at an online video game.
If one Call of Duty title isn’t enough then here’s another deal to get the Legacy edition of Call of Duty (The one that includes the remaster to Call of Duty 4) that you really want for only for double the price… still cheap though.
Regular Edition: £15.09 (G2A)
Legacy Edition: £26.99 (CDKeys)
Yep, more online shooters. Get rid of the shooty, bang-bang realism of Call of Duty and replace it with an arena shooter filled with whimsical cartoon characters, some of which have a far too “dedicated” fan base. The game itself is masses of fun, each character has their own skill set, quirks, strong and weak points. You also have more than 30 of them to choose from, meaning you can spend the entire holiday season trying to find the character that works best for you, once that is done then enjoy the carnage and play until High noon (a joke you will get, if you purchase the deal).
Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition
This game won’t just keep you occupied for the holiday season, it may keep you entertained right until the next holiday season. I’m not even joking, this game has so much content that you won’t even need to sleep this Christmas, you will just be doing your job as a Witcher. Killing monsters, saving the world and making little Witchers with witches and prostitutes. Sounds far more interesting than your life of retail and office work. As well as the incredibly long base game, you also have access to more than 10 free pieces of DLC and the two massive expansion packs. Hearts of Stone and the even longer Blood and Wine will add another 30 hours to your game time.
