Weekend Game Deals

Chris Antista at

Come on in, bargain hunters! We’ve dug up the cheapest possible ways to waste the weekend. Dungeon Defenders, Battlefield 3, Arkham City, The Darkness II, and a ton of Ubisoft games have been temporarily encheapend.


As expected, Steam has slashed the prices of a couple of games this weekend, including Dungeon Defenders, which is free to play and cheap to own until Monday:



It looks as if EA's Origin service has finally taken a page from Steam's flexible price plans and drastically reduced the cost of several kickass titles. Even better, they've got a deal going on where you can get Arkham City for $10 just by purchasing Mass Effect 3!



Amazon’s having a Buy 1, Get 1 Free sale on $5 DRM-free Ubisoft downloads. Titles include Far Cry, Splinter Cell, Assassin’s Creed, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Call of Juarez, Rainbow Six Vegas and more.

Also worthy of Amazon note, it looks as if the superstore has matched certain deals on Origin. Many post-2009 EA games purchased on Amazon, such as Battlefield 3, can be activated via Origin. Check the FAQ for more.



Impulse has many of the same weekend deals listed elsewhere, and even more on top of that! This week's "King of Savings!" not only has The Darkness II at the lowest price anywhere, Impulse's offering the 2K Ultimate Bundle pack, which includes BioShock, Civilization III, IV, V, Mafia II, Duke Nukem Forever, Borderlands, the entire X-Com series and more for $69.99!
