ItÂs Friday and that means for many people a little downtime is about to begin. Unless your boss is grilling you to come in and finish those TPS reports, but I digress.
We at Ten Ton Hammer love our games and we know that you do too, so join us for a brief deviation from our usual MMOG related coverage to explore the vast world of the Internet to help find you some of the cheapest digital gaming deals available this weekend. You have to have something to play in that downtime.
LetÂs start our trip over at the Humble Bundle this week where you can find a collection of some of Deep SilverÂs finest on the block. The new bundle offers Saints Row: The Third, Saints Row 2, Risen 2: Dark Waters, and Sacred 2 Gold. If you opt to pay more than $5.18 youÂll also get a few other gems such as Metro 2033, Dead Island, Saints Row The Third Â The Full Package, Sacred Citadel, and Risen. Pay $25 or more and you'll also get a copy of Dead Island: Riptide. Several of the games also include their respective soundtracks.
In the Humble Weekly sale youÂll find an offering from Introversion Software that includes Uplink, Darwinia, Multiwinia, Defcon, and source code for each. Pay $19.99 or more for the bundle and youÂll also get a copy of Prison Architect.
As always, you can set your own price for the Humble Bundle and decide how much goes to the developer or the benefitting charities by way of the handy sliders at checkout.
