Weekend PC download deals: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on Steam and more

Christmas is almost here, so prepare for the dawn of the holiday sales.

Green Man Gaming, Direct2Drive, GamersGate, Origin and the Humble Store are among the retailers that are starting their holiday sales. Meanwhile, Steam doesn't kick off their sale until next week, but they have a handful of good deals, led by Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Get a look at all of the weekend's 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?
