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.

Humble Choice games for August

We are starting things off with the latest Humble Choice Bundle which received its monthly refresh earlier this week. Subscribers can now grab eight more games as part of the August selection to expand their Steam libraries.

For $11.99 you receive Disco Elysium - The Final Cut, Arcade Paradise, Chivalry 2, Hot Brass, Road 96, SuchArt: Genius Artist Simulator, Tin Can, and Trek to Yomi.

This Choice bundle will refresh to bring the next wave of games on September 5, giving you a month to decide on the current selection.

Humble Jackbox Jukebox Bundle

Humble also introduced a brand-new Jackbox bundle filled with titles from the popular party game series. Starting with $1 for Fibbage and $5 for Quiplash, each of the five tiers adds on more and more entries. The bundle contains the original Party Pack as well as 3, 5, 7, and 9 instalments when going for the $20 top tier.

Aside from that, a new racing bundle for simulator fans appeared this week as well. This carries everything in a single package costing $13. Assetto Corsa Ultimate Edition, Automobilista 2, Assetto Corsa Competizione, NASCAR Heat 5 Ultimate Edition, rFactor 2, Automobilista, and DRIFT21 are what's included, and many of these sims support VR headsets too.

Loop Hero and Bloons key art

Epic Games Store's weekly freebie refreshed right on schedule this week, and it brought along copies of Loop Hero and Bloons TD 6 to claim.

Loop Hero brings an unending RPG experience that takes place after the world's end, sending a lone hero to rebuild what's lost. Meanwhile, Bloons TD 6 is a popular tower-defense game that continues to receive updates with fresh content. There's three player co-op attached to it as well.

The two games are yours to claim and keep via the Epic Games Store until August 10. On the same date, Europa Universalis IV and Orwell: Keeping an Eye on You will become the next freebies.
