The weekend has arrived, or as we like to call it "the calm before the Windows 8-Surface-Windows Phone 8 storm begins." If you are relaxing in front of your PC desktop monitor or your gaming laptop, you may be wondering if there are any good PC downloadable game deals this weekend. The short answer? "You betcha."
The long answer? How about a "whatever you want to pay deal" at GoG.com for a ton of great games from Interplay? For the next 13 days you can pay whatever you want and get eight Interplay titles (Conquest of the New World, M.A.X. + M.A.X. 2, Jagged Alliance 2: Unfinished Business, Shattered Steel, Screamer, Evolva, Kingdom: The Far Reaches and VR Soccer `96).
If you pay more than the current average amount, GoG.com will give you an additional 12 games from Interplay. Finally, if you pay $34.99 or above you get a total of 32 games from Interplay, which in a bundle costs 82 percent off compared to their normal separate prices.
Steam also has a nice deal on the popular first person shooter PayDay: The Heist this weekend, priced at 75 percent off. Even better is that you can play the full game for free from now until 4 pm Eastern time on Sunday. GameStop has a bunch of space-themed games for sale, including Lost Planet 1 and 2 for $9.99 each. Finally, GamersGate has a lot of games on sale, including titles in the Assassin's Creed series priced as low as $4.99.
