Weekend PC Download Deals for May 8: First DOOM Eternal discounts

It's time to rip and tear, because the recently-released DOOM Eternal is getting its biggest discount to date on Steam.

9

You have your mission. You must rip and tear until it is done. And if you're late to the ripping and the tearing, then perhaps a discount will give you incentive to get started. Yes, DOOM Eternal is getting its first significant discount, going down by 25 percent this weekend. So if you want it, you can pick it up on Steam and The Humble Store right now.

Speaking of The Humble Store, the Humble Store Spring Sale has begun and that means dozens of games across a vast number of publishers are seeing big price drops. That includes games like DOOM Eternal, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Control, Red Dead Redemption II, and others. Also, Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation is going absolutely free for everyone, but you only have until tomorrow to claim it, so act fast!

Lastly, if you missed the news earlier, that's a heck of an Eidos Anthology bundle that Square Enix is offering on Steam, so be sure to pick that up if you haven't already. All revenue goes to charity.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I will plug this here: The Squeenx Eidos bundle is 95% off with all revenue going to food banks . That's $40 for the whole shebang, and less if you have some of the products (but still get the 95% off).

      This is the "Why don't you have this bundle yet" list:
      - Life is Strange S1 (e1-5 but no Before the Storm)
      - Just Cause 1 through 3 + all DLC
      - All the Deus Ex Games (yes, unfortunately the Fall too)
      - Sleeping Dogs
      - All the Tomb Raider games save Shadow (the latest)
      - Hitman + Lara Croft GO
      - The Turing test
      - Anachronix

      And a bunch more but we don't talk about Daikatana

        OK, so... I'm one of those poor souls who hasn't signed up for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate before. Back when everyone was doing that maneuver where they signed up and locked in a great price for three years I had just had some expensive real life shit happen so I kinda ignored it all.

        I have an active Xbox Live Gold subscription paid up through the end of August. I think. I know I did one of those "pay $59.99 and be set for a year" things.

        I once was signed up for Xbox Game Pass (before it was Ultimate and included PC) but I don't remember if I did a trial or if I paid for a month or two but either way I canceled it.

        I just signed on for this deal and it let me do the $1 thing. Nowhere did it say anything about six months anything. That I saw or noticed anyway.

        The account.microsoft.com/services page says I'm now signed up for $14.99/month every month, next charge is September 1.

        They charged me exactly a buck.

        Anyone know if I'm going to get charged $14.99 in a month, or $1.00 in a month or...? Yeah this is confusing.

        But in the meantime it cost me a dollar and I'm installing MW5.
