Weekend PC Download Deals for Oct. 9: Free Sonic 2 on Steam

Gotta go fast to pick up Sonic the Hedgehog 2 from Steam! It's free to own right now!


If you've been following the deals posts for the past few weeks, you may have noticed that Nintendo recently had a SEGA 60th Anniversary sale on Switch. Now it's the PC owner's turn to take advantage of that, because Steam is holding its own sale to honor the publisher's 60th year. And if that's not enough, a classic game can be yours for absolutely free. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is one of the greatest 2D platformers of all time and now it's yours to own, assuming you claim it off of Valve's storefront before October 19. And while you're there, check out the other great games under the Sega publishing umbrella, including Persona 4 Golden, Two Point Hospital, the Total War games, the Yakuza games, and more.

Meanwhile, if you're into The Sims 4, it's a good time to pick up some expansions, so be sure to check out what's available on Origin and Green Man Gaming. Rockstar's best are available on the Humble Store, GamersGate, and Green Man Gaming. Ubisoft's best are on sale through the Ubisoft Store and Fanatical. Finally, there are a couple of new releases getting some discounts, including Star Wars Squadrons on Green Man Gaming, Mike Bithell's The Solitaire Conspiracy on the Epic Games Store and Steam, and Falcon Age on Steam.

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?
