Weekend Gaming Deals Roundup 8/16/2013
Welcome back for another edition of Weekend Gaming Deals Roundup, where we do the legwork to find you the best digital gaming deals available for cheap just in time for the weekend.
LetÂs hit the ground running this week with whatÂs probably the best deal around this weekend Â the Humble Origin Bundle. EAÂs Humble Bundle isnÂt very humble when it comes to a robust selection of games. Setting your own price this week you can get your hands on MirrorÂs Edge, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2: Maxim Edition, Dead Space, Dead Space 3, and Medal of Honor. If you opt to pay more than the average $4.80 price you can also get copies of Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3 Starter Pack.
Flipping the page to the weekly bundle deal youÂll find several games selected by YouTube personality PewDieDie. This includes Botanicula, McPixel, Thomas Was Alone, The Showdown Effect, and if you pay more than $2.54, Amnesia: The Dark Decent.
As always is the case with the Humble Bundle, you can select how much goes to the developer and the two charities via the handy little sliders.
If youÂre lacking in your Total War strategy game collection, you may want to pay a visit over to Green Man this weekend where youÂll find the Total War collection available for up to 75% off. Other discounted titles include Crysis 3 ($19.99), Need for Speed Most Wanted ($9.99), LA Noire ($5.99), and the Grand Theft Auto Complete Bundle ($12.49).
