This week's best deals

Mass Effect 3, Trine 2, and 25% off at GMG

The tastiest specials on this week's menu include Mass Effect 3 Digital Deluxe for $20 (opens in new tab) during Amazon's big Labor Day sale (opens in new tab) , 75% off the Trine Complete Collection (opens in new tab) on Steam, and a new Green Man Gaming voucher code (opens in new tab) for deals on whatever you want deals on.


Trine and Crysis

Everything Trine is on sale at Steam, including the new Trine 2: Goblin Menace DLC (opens in new tab) . There's also Crysis, but when isn't it on sale?


Labor Day sale

Amazon's big Labor Day sale (opens in new tab) ends Sunday, so you don't have much longer to get, say, Mass Effect 3 Digital Deluxe Edition for $20 (opens in new tab) .

Green Man Gaming

► 25% off everything

There are a couple of new voucher codes at GMG (opens in new tab) . Ending Monday, use GMG25-1BW0K-K1A3G to get 25% off any PC game download or SDOGS-E1V8A-9R1HX for 30% off Sleeping Dogs specifically.

You can't stack them for 55% off Sleeping Dogs, but you could buy Stacking for 25% off. Actually, you can't. It isn't in GMG's catalog. It is 50% off at Amazon (opens in new tab) , but that doesn't stop my joke from being ruined.


Point-and-Click Mix

Point your browser to GOG's adventure-themed weekend deals (opens in new tab) and click on games like Machinarium, Resonance, and Botanicula. Wow. Did I go too far that time?

Get Games

Total War

Nothing huge to report from Get Games. Sleeping Dogs is back up to 25% off, and the perennially on sale Total War series is on sale.


► Saints Row and Might & Magic

GameStop's silly long list of deals (opens in new tab) is largely populated by Saints Row The Third's expansive DLC library and Might & Magic (opens in new tab) .


► A bin of bargains

Why can't I hold all these deals (opens in new tab) ? At least GamersGate has gone from 10 pages of scattershot discounts to just two, but there's still a lot to cover. Here's the short version: it has same Trine bundle deal as Steam (opens in new tab) , 75% off Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY (opens in new tab) , and tons of kings, crusades, and iron hearts.


► Bulletstorm and Stronghold 3

GameFly is pretty light on sales this weekend, so I'll just use this space to think about the idea of a real bullet storm. It would be terrible. All those bullets plummeting from angry thunder-shots above. Clearly, we can never allow the gods to acquire firearms.

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? I'll continue thieving in Guild Wars 2 on the Tarnished Coast server, though I am disappointed that the Thief class steals abilities instead of what I really want: money. I want to be the richest low-level scoundrel on the server, dammit.
