Shack PSA: Weekend PC digital deals [Updated]

This weekend brings savings on digitally-distributed PC games including Rift, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat and a huge indie bundle.

[Update: 17:19] Steam has launched a mega-bundle, and it's a doozy--13 top-notch indie games for only $38.65, with a potato hat for TF2 thrown in too. [Original Story] The weekend has rolled around, as it often does, and digital distributors are celebrating in the traditional way--with heaps of discounts on PC games. While Steam is offering far fewer deals than it typically does, other sites are picking up the slack. There are no real mega stand-out deals this week, just a healthy selection of respectable savings on titles both new and old. Here's our selection of this week's deals:


Super Meat Boy

      I love that they sell "collector's editions" over digital distribution platforms.

              At least some of the games have been patched to be potato related too. Super Meat Boy now has you playing as a potato.

            Hmmm... Amnesia is on sale by itself. I've been thinking about that one for a while, but I found the controls pretty cumbersome when faced with time based puzzles (running and jumping across floating crates trying to get to a gate before it closed while pursued by an invisible water monster).

            Can anyone comment on how the rest of the game is in this respect? I don't really play FPSes on the PC anymore...

              That's the only area you are that pressed for time. And If you die 3 times, the monster doesn't spawn

      D2D is also starting a 30 day sale thing, today's is Medal of Honor for 7.50$, which is a little tempting.
