Steam has a few titles on sale, including Eufloria for 50% off along with Strongbad: Season One, which is also included in a big sale on Telltale's official store. Make sure to check out the Steam "Specials" tab for additional promotions.

Impulse has a few sales, including Mount & Blade: Warband for $15.53 while Direct2Drive also has Mount & Blade: Warband on sale (and slightly cheaper) along with 50% off all Paradox Interactive software and 75% off Star Wolves 3. Also, various Shack users tell us that Ubisoft has a special promotion for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (PSN) pre-orders at its official online store.

As for the Shack Commanders, we're sticking to the games that have already cemented a spot in our gaming collections. What are you playing this weekend?

  • Alice O'Connor: I have no idea. I might play video games but it has been a while since I played computer games.

  • Brian Leahy: This weekend I'm traveling down to Comic-Con, so I'll be playing some Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and hopefully some other stuff on the floor. While traveling, I'll probably be playing more iPhone games and maybe some more Persona 3 Portable. The next (100) times you read this, it will just be StarCraft II so have fun with that.

  • Garnett Lee: I'll be wrapping up DeathSpank this weekend, returning to the Pacific Northwest for the first Alan Wake episode 'the Signal', and taking a break between them to test out the Medal of Honor beta on 360 now that's it's finally live.

  • Jeff Mattas: It's catch-up time. While I'm not running through the forest shooting at demonic lumberjacks (Alan Wake), I'll be adding to my star total (Super Mario Galaxy 2) and collecting poop (DeathSpank). And poker. Texas Hold 'em to be exact.

  • Xav de Matos: Returning to Bright Falls in Alan Wake's first DLC 'The Signal,' slashing through Dragon Age Origins on PC and loving it, throwing down in some hardcore Alien Swarm action and revisiting a personal all-time fave, Age of Empires III.
