Weekend PC Game Deals is where the hottest gaming deals from all over the internet are gathered into one place, every week, for your consumption. So kick back, relax, and hold on to your wallets.
Starting things off with the freebies of the week, Epic Games had a couple of surprises in store when its latest giveaway added on extra games than what was announced. In addition to the promised Stick It To The Man promo, the store also made Football Manager 2020 and Watch Dogs 2 free to claim.
The hacking-focused open-world title Watch Dogs 2 has been given away by Ubisoft before, but this is a great opportunity if you didn’t catch it the last time. Football Manager 2020 is aimed at simulator fans looking to run their own football club, offering teams from all over the world to manage. Lastly, Stick it To The Man is a humorous narrative puzzle game where you take the role of Ray, someone who has gained mind reading and world-altering powers after an accident.
Following this trio's run, Epic is planning to give away the upcoming RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition the day it releases on September 24.
Elsewhere, Steam is also having a freebie promotion, with DONTNOD Entertainment's Life is Strange 2 first episode going free to claim.
There are also a couple of Humble Bundles happening right now, so let's get started with its new You Can Pet the Dog bundle. As evident by the name, all eight games in this bundle have dogs you can pet.
For $1 you get Scribblenauts Unlimited, Bulb Boy, Dog Sled Saga, and Beyond Eyes. Bumping that up to the second tier, currently at less than $5, gets you Shenmue I & II, Death's Gambit, and Where the Water Tastes Like Wine. Lastly, the $12 tier comes in with a copy of Blair Witch.
Also in the spotlight this weekend is Humble's Better Futures Bundle, and through this you get Torchlight, Agent A: A puzzle in disguise, and Throne of Lies for $1. Following that, the pay the average second tier (around $4 currently) will add on Torchlight II, Road Redemption, and This War of Mine to the collection. The final tier comes in with two more items, them being Knights of Pen and Paper 1 + 2 Collection and Mythic Ocean.
Bundles aren't over just yet, as the Fanatical Store this week kicked off its newest Bundle Fest promotion. There are quite a few collections available to check out, but we've picked out a few highlights.

Putting down $1 gets you one game, $2.99 gets you five, and $4.99 gets you ten items from the selection.
You may also want to have a look at the Killer Bundle 13, which has a couple of games that overlap with one of the Humble Bundles mentioned above.
