Shack PSA: 50% Off Fallout 3 PC and Other Sales

By Chris Faylor, Jul 02, 2009 8:17am PDT As Independence Day is drawing near, online retailers have already kicked off their weekend sales, with the highlight thus far being Steam's half-off sale on Fallout 3.

Usually $50, a digital download of Bethesda's acclaimed post-apocalyptic PC RPG can temporarily be yours for $25. However, this doesn't include any of the $10 downloadable expansions, so the more frugal of you may want to wait until October, when the game and its five downloadable add-ons will be sold together in a $50 Game of the Year bundle.

Other standout deals include the X-Com Complete Pack for $7.50 at GamersGate and Call of Duty: World at War PC for $35 at Direct2Drive. Impulse also has several noteworthy sales going on, including a $30 Sins of the Solar Empire/Expansion Bundle and free copies of Red Faction 1 and 2 with a pre-order of RF: Guerrilla.

Oh, and don't forget that with Street Fighter IV PC coming out next week, both Steam and Impulse are offering 10% off pre-orders, making the fighting game $36.

  • Anyone have any opinions on Gamer's Gate? I read through their FAQ and the grammar scares me a bit. I'd love to pick up that X-COM pack, but I'm a little uncertain about it.

    They seem to indicate that both 1) You can download the installers and burn them to disc to take to another computer but 2) The second computer must have an internet connection.

    So, I sort of think that if they ever went away, my purchases would be lost. Is this the case? I haven't heard of them before, so I don't trust them to perpetuity like I might an Impulse or Steam...
