We are well into the Memorial Day weekend but some PC gaming web sites continue to offer up some major savings.

Steam - Valve's PC gaming web site continues its week long sale of Ubisoft titles with one day price cuts on the first two games in the Assassin's Creed series. From now until 1 pm Eastern time on Sunday, Assassin's Creed 1 is on sale for just $6.80 while Assassin's Creed 2 is on sale for just $10.20. In addition the just released third game in the series, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, is on sale from now until Monday for $33.49, a 33 percent price cut. Also, today's daily Steam deal cuts the price of the indie adventure game Samorost2 down to just $2.

You can make money back from the games you buy and complete though by selling them on to someone else, or make someone happy by gifting them to a friend or family member for their birthday.

In my opinion, OnLive doesn't support PC gaming but rather, hinders it. It doesn't encourage for newer hardware development claiming that you can get the full gaming experience by streaming. If this service did take of, imagine the lack of hardware sales for PC gaming specific hardware. Beside the point, you don't really own the games but rather, you rent them. Once OnLive goes under (and most likely will), you can say goodbye to your games and your money.

Some people might say it's a better deal than buying a game for full price, beating it then never playing it again. Some games simply have no replay value, and a lot of people are only interested in playing them once anyway.
