GOG Diamonds of D&D

Aside from 10% off FTL: Faster Than Light (opens in new tab) , GOG has its usual themed sale. This weekend, it's all D&D deals...wait, what's this?! *Spit take.* Something new for GOG: the discounts scale (opens in new tab) with the number of games you buy. At one game, you'll get 30% off, buy two and get 33% off each, and so on up to all nine games for 65% off each. *Cleans up spit.*

Links to the individual games are below, but if you want the scaling deal, you have to go to the hub (opens in new tab) .

Amazon The Over-The-Top TopWare Bundle

Regular Amazon is way less fun than Labor Day Amazon -- it's pretty much back to the same 'ol, with games like Modern Warfare 2 and Civilization V on sale again. There is a new bundle sale, at least: the Over-The-Top TopWare Bundle includes 13 games. You probably don't want all 13.

GamersGate ► A horde of romance

It's the same deal as last week: a giant, colorful patchwork of box art and red discount stickers. Only a few deals stick out at me. 50% off BioShock (opens in new tab) ? Sure. 20% off To The Moon (opens in new tab) (Friday only)? Not bad. Miss Chic Romantic for only $7.48 (opens in new tab) ? Sounds goo- hey, wait a minute.

GameFly ► L.A. Noire

L.A. Noire is the highlight of GameFly's sparse list this weekend.

Let us know in the comments if you find any more great deals, and if you feel like sharing: what are you playing this weekend? It's all FTL: Faster Than Light for me. Well, not all , but lots of it.
