Weekend PC download deals: a fall reprieve

There aren't a whole lot of deals of note this week, aside from the always-reliable Steam. Consider it a break amidst the continuing onslaught of fall new releases.


October is in full swing and that means there isn't much more time to fill your back catalog before you're drowned out by the new fall releases. Most retailers are trying to cram in a few deals, while a few others look to be biding their time for the Christmas holiday. Steam is offering up the Focus Home Interactive catalog, while Newegg offers up great 2K games, GamersGate celebrates Square Enix and Deep Silver, and GOG has some pretty amazing recent releases that are DRM-free, as always. Aside from that, it's a quiet week for big deals. Check out our full list of deals below.

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?

      What is the deal with Rise of the Triad? On steam it still shows 14.99 but "in my library". I can't see it or play it though.

        I think Rise of the Triad was actually LAST weekend.

      To whom it may concern, the bullet style used in the post formatting doesn't work very well, i think. it seems to blend together too much and ends up look like a plain text list with strange boxes along the side.

      also having a link to the chatty comments at the bottom of the article was always convenient i think. maybe the current one could move down there? follow the user's scroll down? something like that?

      i do appreciate these game deal posts though, keep em comin'!
