Shack PSA: Weekend PC Digital Deals and Discounts

"But beloved sage," the neighbourhood children will say as they crowd around you, their faces all sticky with honey and speckled with breadcrumbs, "why did you wait until the week-end to buy PC games? And what is a PC? And a game? Or laughter? And fun? Why did you weep when the Spider People descended from the skies in a rain of nuclear fire? And why do you wriggle so in our web?" Ah, the innocence of youth!


This weekend, you can pick up the original Dead Space for $6.80, just in time for the launch of its sequel next week. On the subject of launches, there's a third off the intriguing indie RTS Apox to celebrate its own launch, letting you enter a Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic world for only $10. If you want your strategy terrifyingly deep, though, there's 80% off Europa Universalis III. Or to be mystified, pick up Myst cheap.

Here's a selection of the discounts offered by digital distributors over the weekend:
