    There's a blanket 25% off every individual item in the QuakeCon Pack 2011, but you might want to hold off on buying anything with simply a quarter off. There are two Bethesda daily deals still to be revealed, which will doubtless offer bigger discounts than a mere 25%. Thursday saw big Doom and Quake series savings and Friday's discounting The Elder Scrolls, so you're safe to buy those, but for everything else you might want to wait until Sunday so you don't miss any savings. Until Saturday, 10am PST:
