Weekend Game Deals - Double the humble

Audio player loading…

Last week I told you to check out the latest Humble Indie Bundle (opens in new tab) . Go back -- it now includes Braid, Super Meat Boy, and Lone Survivor if you pay above the average price. Wow.

Since EA is trying to be Nordstrom (opens in new tab) , we'll just skip over Origin and head to Steam, where Paradox games are 50% off (opens in new tab) all weekend. On Amazon, the Crysis Maximum Edition is only $8.99 (opens in new tab) , and GameFly has some big "Summer Roadtrip" deals (opens in new tab) . Click on over to the other side for all of this week's intellectual property cheapening...


It's Paradox Interactive Weekend (opens in new tab) on Steam, which means 50% off all Paradox games and DLC. It seems like there's rarely a week without a Paradox sale somewhere -- Magicka, Europa Universalis, and Mount & Blade are constantly discounted. No complaints here.


[US Only] Rift is still 72% off (opens in new tab) , which seemed nice until I saw that it's 59 cents cheaper at its base price on the official site (opens in new tab) . That's dumb, so it's off the list. Amazon does, however, have the Crysis Maximum Edition for $8.99 (opens in new tab) and the usual big list of medium and small discounts.


[US & Canada, some available in Mexico] With new games on sale every 48 hours for GameFly's "Summer Roadtrip," (opens in new tab) I can't say how long any of these will last. This is what's on sale at the time of writing, and there's some good stuff:


New this week: GameStop is offering every Assassin's Creed game for $52, 50% off Syndicate, and 33% off Battlefield 3. Last week's Warhammer 40K: Space Marine and 2K Ultimate Bundles are back, too.


GOG's 50% off weekend deal (opens in new tab) covers Anuman games, including the Syberia, Still Life, Moto Racer, and Atlantis series.


Unless you'd like five cents off Hitman: Codename 47, not much has changed at GMG.
