Weekend PC Download Deals for Apr. 28: Star Wars Day starts early

Star Wars Day isn't for another six days, but Steam and GOG.com have started their celebrations early.


Readers who have checked their calendar may have noticed that next Friday would not, in fact, be May the 4th. Instead, it would be Cinco de Mayo. Sure, it's possible to have a Star Wars Day promotion start up next Thursday and run it through the weekend, but that's not what Steam and GOG.com have in mind this year. Instead, the Star Wars Day promotions have started up a week early, partly to celebrate the release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. Get discounts on classic Star Wars titles, including the old-school X-Wing and TIE Fighter games and the Knights of the Old Republic series.

Golden Week is also underway. Steam (along with Green Man Gaming) is packed with Golden Week promotions. Valve's storefront is also celebrating a few new releases with a few discounts. Live A Live and The Last Case of Benedict Fox both arrived this week and both are discounted for their launch period. Cassette Beasts may not get a big launch discount on Steam, but it is 20 percent off over at Gamesplanet, so check that out there.

Lastly, the Xbox Game Studios promotion is still active over on Steam and it has upped the ante slightly. Grounded is still on sale and it's also in the middle of a free weekend for anyone who wants to try it out. Make some space for a few other Steam free weekends, including ones for Deceive Inc., NARAKA: Bladepoint, and TerraTech.

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?
