Shack PSA: Weekend PC digital deals

It's payday. Come buy some cheap video games.

10
Ring in the last weekend of the month the way any dedicated PC gamer does--by buying so many cheap games in digital distributor sales that you're overwhelmed by choice, paralysed with indecision, until you simply walk away. In the back of your mind, the ever-growing virtual pile of unplayed games still nags at you. Bargains this weekend that will haunt you for years to come include 75% off the last few Command & Conquer games, The Witcher for $7.98 and the brilliant recent King's Bounty games starting at only $2.49. While you can get a third off Dead Space 2, it turns out to be not too exciting as many retailers are offering the exact some price anyway. There's more, of course. Here's our selection of this week's deals: Steam GamersGate You can get up to 20% off Assassin's Creed Brotherhood through a quiz we've set up with GamersGate, simply by answering trivia questions. Direct2Drive 15% off all MMOs, including pre-orders, if you use the coupon code hotpockets at the checkout. Good Old Games

      Since it's out, you get the Fusion DLC for free if you own both HD remakes of Serious Sam. Just sayin'.

      Didn't know of GamersGate, but I have been waiting for The Witcher to drop again after missing the holiday Steam sale... so I discovered them tonight thanks to Shack. 7.98 is just too good to get into this series finally.

      Don't buy CnC4, especially not for finding out the story.

      Worst "game" in the CnC series.

        I've got to agree. I purchased it for $5 in the Christmas Steam sales, mostly just to find out how the story "ends", and I was sorely disappointed, even on that one point.

        Armored Princess w/Crossworlds, although Legend is still pretty good. All three are worth having.

      No offense to any of these games, but seems like kind of a weak weekend on quality sales.

      how was Red Alert 3? $5 seems like a good deal but I've got over 50 games in my backlog.

        $5 is a good deal for it.

        It's a good game. Gets really heavy on the micro later on.

        It's pretty damn good. Most definitely worth five bucks.

      settlers 7 for 15 dollars is a great deal, 10 dollars cheaper than it was in the steam holiday sale

      Agreed with Vogerl! Please do not buy Command and Conquer 4. Try playing on Red Alert 3. :D
