The Summer Sale remains absent, but Valve has confirmed (opens in new tab) that there will be a sale which will take place during the summer. Just later. For now, how about 50% off Wargame: European Escalation (opens in new tab) and a bunch of CoD DLC?


[US Only] Oh, hi Amazon (opens in new tab) . Didn't see you there. What's that? You've got a big sale going on? 50% off Spec Ops: The Line (opens in new tab) , you say? Neat. And you've got 33% off Max Payne 3 (opens in new tab) , 75% off Binary Domain (opens in new tab) , 75% Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai (opens in new tab) , and big discounts on bundles like the Square Enix Ultimate Collection (opens in new tab) ? Shh, I don't know where I was going with this either Amazon, so let's just relax and enjoy your deals:


GOG's weekend promo theme is Strategy First Global (opens in new tab) . As usual, all of the games are either $2.99 or $4.99. This week's selection is big, and includes FlatOut (opens in new tab) , Jagged Alliance 2 (opens in new tab) , Disciples 2 Gold (opens in new tab) , Apache vs. Havoc (opens in new tab) , and more.


Usually I list out the best from these sites, but A. some of the sales are currently cheaper elsewhere (e.g. Max Payne 3 is 30% off at GamersGate (opens in new tab) , but 33% off on Amazon (opens in new tab) ) and B. I'm really, really busy today. It's mostly that second thing, so let us know in the comments if I missed anything big this week.
