Shack PSA: Weekend Savings on The Witcher, Mount & Blade, Indie Titles, EA Software and More

12
The weekend is upon us and, as you know, that means a time of tremendous digital download savings.

The deals we've been able to round-up include a slew of sales on select EA software on the publishing giant's official store and 75% off Mount & Blade on Steam.

GamersGate has also discounted a number of indie developed titles, including knocking Plain Sight down to $2, And Yet It Moves for $4 and Machinarium for $6.49.

    While these digital deals all of the time are great, I don't want to have to download all of the different clients (especially if all I want is one game for that client). Somebody needs to come up with a solution for this.

        Seriously, who buys PC games retail any more?

        Been years and years since I bought a game in a box.

          Not to mention, they are hard to find in brick and mortar stores. The only place that I know of that typically has most PC retail games is Best Buy. Gamestop no longer carries them, which is super lame.

            the "pc gaming" section at my local gamestop consists of WoW and the expansions. there's literally a sign that says "PC GAMING" with 3 boxes under it. might as well be a sign with a middle finger.

              You should try flipping it over. The middle finger is probably on the back.

            You can also buy retail on the internet.

            It varies by Gamestop - some carry them some don't.

            An excellent place to get PC Games is Target. They even get the Blizzard special editions and they have these schizophrenic clearance sales. They occasionally slash a $50 game to $4.98 for no apparent reason.

              I love Target and there cheapass clearance games, perfect place to pick up some games that Steam might not have. I picked up both RE5 ans Section 8 for pc, 2 copies each for a total of $20!

          occasionally if the collector's edition is fancy enough. or if there's a good deal.

      Your best option is to stick with Steam. It's not 100% coverage, but close enough. Although there are times when that bites you like my beloved pinball game where the publisher, Strategy First, won't pass along the updates to Steam. It's also frustrating when you do go with Steam and publishers like Ubisoft insist on still using their own DRM in addition to Steam's.

      Sad thing is everybody is going to have diffrent clients because it cuts out the middle man and gives the publishers more $$$. Right now Steam is the main one you have to running when you play anything....well Games for Windows too....but that tends to be more off a like/hate relationship. Impulse just has the game DRM part but won't require the storefront part. D2D and gamersgate don't really have anything just a download manager. EA does the same but that one usually gets stuck in start up. I tend to buy from all of them. Steam is the only thing i have stuck in start up (since i play off of that the most) but i tend to have impulse running to.

      I feel your pain but if there is money to be had you will probaly see more coming out, Hell Interplay said they were going to have one. If they are done right and have a very low footprint it's not that much of an issue......
