This Weekend's PC Game Deals is where the hottest gaming deals are amassed into an easy to follow format, in one place, from all over the internet. So kick back, relax and hold on to your wallets.
If you're someone who is itching to get their hands on a classic military shooter, or just can't say no to a good deal, look no further than what EA is currently offering on its 'On The House' promotion.
With just an Origin account as a requirement, you can grab 2004's Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault for free. A game from an era when World War II shooters were the trend, which surprisingly we finally seem to be returning to.
Video game bundles have quickly become a common sight in the PC gaming world, and the $12 Humble Monthly Bundle is always one to keep an eye on.
This bundle's early unlocks for the month are the basketball game NBA 2K17 and the award winning RPG by Obsidian Entertainment, Pillars of Eternity. Although the sports title and the RPG are not similar in any way shape or form, it's quite a bargain for the asking price.
Keep in mind that even more games will be included in the bundle once it comes to a close on August 4, and active subscribers can enjoy a 10% discount on all Humble Store purchases.
If the monthly bundle with its mystery selection of games isn't to your liking, the two other gaming bundles that Humble is currently offering might spark your interest.
First up is the Humble Capcom Rising Bundle, which is offering plenty of action oriented games on the cheap side. The bundle's $1 tier offers Strider, Umbrella Corps and the popular hack-and-slash title, DMC: Devil May Cry.
Paying more than the bundle's average amount ($7.51 at the time of writing) gives you Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, Resident Evil HD Remaster, Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster, Resident Evil 6, as well as a Deluxe Edition Upgrade Pack to the previously mentioned Umbrella Corps. Meanwhile, forking over $12 gets you Dead Rising 2, along with Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse Edition.
Next, we have the Humble Telltale Games Bundle, offering what looks to be most of the developer's lineup of games, with more to come later. The bundle is a great opportunity to stock up on Telltale games, as the developer recently announced plans for a number of sequels to its previous series.
The $1 tier nets you the highly praised first season of The Walking Dead, Poker Night at the Inventory, Telltale Texas Hold'em, Hector: Badge of Carnage, along with two seasons of Sam & Max, Puzzle Agent 1 and 2, as well as two episodes of Bone.
Bumping up to the second tier, which currently stands at $8.76, you receive a number of highly acclaimed Telltale series, including The Walking Dead - Season two, The Walking Dead: Michone, Game of Thrones, a 50% off coupon for The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, as well as the fan favorite Tales from the Borderlands.
Lastly, deciding to fork over $15 gives you copies of Batman - The Telltale Series , Minecraft: Story Mode, as well as the Minecraft: Story Mode - Adventure Pass. Be sure to check out the Batman - The Telltale Series review by Neowin's Usama Jawad if you're undecided on the game, and if you’re a fan of Minecraft: Story Mode series, take a look at his review of the second season's first episode as well.
As with all things available in the Humble Store, these bundles also give away a portion of their proceeds to charity, a great opportunity to get some fantastic games while helping out a good cause.
Before we dive into our list of hand picked deals for the weekend, there are some more freebies that are also on offer today. Some of them are part of free weekends while other games will be available to you forever after claiming.
The Humble Store is giving away Shadow Warrior: Special Edition, and the offer still has some hours left on it. Meanwhile, Steam is offering free weekend promotions for Doom, which recently received its massive 6.66 update making all multiplayer DLC free, as well as for Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine, and Blitzkrieg 3.
