Hello, Hammerites! And welcome back for another edition of our Weekly Gaming Deals Roundup, where we take a minor detour from out usual MMOG coverage to do all of the legwork to bring you a collection of the cheapest digital download gaming deals from around the Internet in one neat little place. If you’re looking to pad out your gaming collection for as little cost as possible, keep on reading.

Amazon

We begin our trip at Amazon this week, where the largest selection of discounted games can be found in their month-long Mayhem sale. This weekend, Amazon has several more PC titles available on their rather massive discount list such as the Crysis Maximum Edition Pack containing both Crysis and Crisis 2 ($11,99), Crysis 3 ($29.99), Deadlight ($3.75),the L.A. Noir Collection ($14.99), Star Trek The Video Game ($24.99), Indigo Prophecy ($4.99), Max Payne 3 ($19.99), Battlefield 3 ($15.02), Darksiders ($15.10), Dead Island Game of the Year Edition ($4.99), Deus Ex: Human Revolution ($8.92), the X-Com Collection (14.99), Metro 2033 ($5.99), Fable ($2.49) or the Fable Collection Bundle (9.99), and Lord of the Rings: War in the North ($5.00). There’s even a World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Collector’s Edition on sale for $34.99 (Note: This is a physical copy but worth a mention for our WoW readers).

Tack those games to the list of nearly 300 others along with several bundle deals and you have what is aptly named the Mayhem sale. It’s a list way too long to post so check it out for here. The Mayhem sale runs through May 31st.

Alan-Wake
Alan Wake becomes the latest Humble Bundle deal to benefit charities.

Humble Bundle

Get good games in the name of charity. It’s a win-win. This week Remedy Entertainment, developer of Alan Wake, announced a new Humble Bundle deal for charity that will grant gamers a copy of Alan Wake: Collector’s Edition, Alan Wake: American Nightmare, and the Alan Wake Soundtrack for giving your chosen donation price to benefit the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play charities.

It’s a good way to help out a charity and get a pair of fun games in the process. The games come DRM-free or you can pay $1 more to get a Steam key. If you haven’t tried the episodic style horror of Alan Wake, I do recommend it. Unfortunately, due to Remedy’s commitment to the development of their new Quantum Break title for the third X-Box, which ironically is known as the Xbox One, the sequel to Alan Wake has been shelved for now. And don’t try to figure out that console naming logic, you’ll only hurt yourself.

GamersGate

Returning to GamersGate this week, we find a fresh new list of juicy weekend deals ripe for the picking. You’ll find a number of fun games such as Torchlight ($3.74), Torchlight II for $9.98 and if you’re a generous friend there’s a 4-Pack for $29.93, several of the Crusader Kings collection priced from $.50 to $2.50 and the more recent Crusader Kings II for $9.99, and Dungeon Gate ($7.46) for you fantasy junkies.

Sword-of-the-Stars-2-Hiver
Sword of the Stars 2 and other space-based games take a price cut at GamersGate.

For you space aficionados there’s something else entirely. A bit of old school mixed with new with such games as the Sword of the Stars Collection ($19.99), Sword of the Stars II Enhanced Edition ($19.99), Endless Space Admiral Edition ($15.00) and Emperor Edition ($17.48), Master of Orion for $1.00 or the full collection for $5.00, X3: Gold Edition ($16.74), Starpoint Gemini ($4.99), and many more titles of both the space-themed variety and more.

In total there are around 80 games and expansions available for discount.

GoG

Over to GoG.com (a great place to get the classics) we find what is dubbed the FPS Flashbomb sale, which includes 50% off the usual price of many shooter titles such as Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Assault ($2.99), several of the Unreal Tournament series ($4.99 each), Serious Sam: First Encounter and Serious Sam: The Second Encounter ($2.99 each), and you can even get ready for the new Riddick movie this September with Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena for $7.49.
