Weekend PC download deals: Winter savings bonanza

Steam isn't the only retailer with a giant holiday sale. Deals are also available on Amazon, Humble, Green Man Gaming, and many other online retailers throughout the holiday.


You'd almost expect for other online retailers to lay down while Steam is unleashing its juggernaut of a Winter Sale. You'd be wrong.

Steam may have its mammoth sale happening right now, but Amazon, GameStop, Green Man Gaming, and the Humble Store are not going to sit idly by and allow Valve to take the lion's share of sales without a fight. Find everything from just about every winter sale 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?
