Here at Ten Ton Hammer we love our games and we know that our faithful readers do too! So join us as we deviate from our usual MMOG coverage for a tour around the web to find out what digital download PC game deals you can get for cheap this weekend.
Mass Effect 1 & 2 are just a couple of the games on sale this weekend.
We begin our adventure with Steam, which has quite a few games up for discount this weekend that include Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition ($4.99), Borderlands 2 ($13.59), Mass Effect 2 Digital Deluxe Edition ($7.49), Mass Effect ($4.99), Hitman Absolution ($12.49), Guns of Icarus Online ($9.99), and several other titles such as Hydrophobia: Prophecy, Anomaly 2, the Postal series, and even more.
In addition to the deals, you can also play Counter Strike: Global Offensive for free this week with the option to buy the game for 50% off ($7.49).
Jumping over to GameStop theres quite a few things on sale that may interest a lot of players. The recently released Star Trek is already on sale for $24.99, which may not be too surprising given the issues that the game experienced at launch and the near universal panning it received in reviews, but there it is.
Along with a panned Star Trek game youll also find games such as Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City ($14.99), Might & Magic Heroes VI: Gold Edition ($14.99), Dead Rising 2 ($9.99), Dead Rising 2: Off the Record ($14.99), Street Fighter X Tekken ($24.99), and Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition ($19.99).

The Duke is back in his not-so-illustrious sequel.
Over at Gameflys digital distribution site formerly known as Direct2Drive, we find yet more gaming goodness for cheap. If youre a fan of the A Game of Thrones series (who isnt?) there are two games up for sale this weekend with A Game of Thrones ($14.99) and A Game of Thrones: Genesis ($12.49).

Bouncing over to GamersGate there are a few other fun titles available this weekend. If youve wanted to give Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning a try, you can pick it up this weekend along with all of its DLC for just $7.49, just dont expect a sequel any time soon. With Metro: Last Light's release this week you may want to get caught up on the previous game, Metro 2033, which is also available for $5.08. Other titles on sale include a slew of Jagged Alliance games ranging from $2.50 to $12.49 for a classic bundle pack, the Men of War Bundle Pack for $17.50, and a number of others.
Our next stop takes us to Green Man Gaming, where you can get your hands on Chivalry: Medieval Warfare for $8.49, multiple games in the Worms series as well as the full collection for $42.49.

Our last stop takes us to Good Old Games (GoG), who is hosting a sale on Ubisoft games this weekend.
