Weekend Deal Roundup

We've reached the end of yet another week, and once again this weekend's sale lineup doesn't disappoint.

  • Steam: Focus Home Interactive Weekend and Sanctum Free Weekend

    The Focus event looks to have some decent titles, but nothing that really screams "buy me now" as far as I can tell: Blood Bowl, Game of Thrones, Cities XL, Sherlock Holmes, etc. Likewise, Sanctum looks interesting (and it's only $2.49), but I feel like it'd find a place near the end of my game queue.

  • GameFly: Select Racing Games 50-75% Off

    This sale offers titles from some pretty popular franchises, including Dirt 3, Driver SF, and some Need For Speed games. I'd highly recommend picking up Dirt 3 and Driver SF at the very least. I'm not a huge fan of the newer NFS games (basically everything after NFS Carbon, not including Shift 2), but these prices are low enough to be tempting if you haven't played them. Blur has always looked interesting, but the online community looks like it's pretty small. Then again, it's only 5 bucks.

  • GamersGate: EA Week

    GamersGate's EA Week continues with different franchises being featured daily. Today the Mass Effect series is available for 60-75% off. 12 bucks for ME3 is a pretty solid deal.

More deals after the jump.

  • GetGames: Sci-Fi Games and Company of Heroes sales

    GetGames has 30 sci-fi games for sale this weekend, including Aliens vs Predator, Anno 2070, Deus Ex Human Revolution, Warhammer 40K Space Marine, and Metro 2033. Deus Ex HR is in my backlog right now, and Metro 2033 is a steal for $5. As far as the other sale goes, Company of Heroes is supposed to be a great RTS.

  • GamersGate: GTA Classics

    This bundle includes GTA 1, 2, and 3 in addition to Vice City and San Andreas, all for 5 bucks. The sheer amount of gameplay available here for 5 dollars is pretty incredible.

  • GOG: Ubisoft Catalog Sale

    GOG has 36 Ubisoft games on sale with everything available for 8 bucks or less, including franchises like Far Cry, Prince of Persia, Rayman, Heroes of Might and Magic, and Tom Clancy.

  • Green Man Gaming: Cashback on XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    We're in the home stretch here. GMG introduced a new promo that offers $5 cash back or $10 store credit with the purchase of the new XCOM game. Should this be expanded in the future, GMG will be a pretty amazing place to buy games. Frequent 20-30% off coupons plus cash back? Yes please.

  • Newegg: RAGE for $6 shipped and $15 Gift Card with purchase of Dishonored

    Newegg has RAGE For 6 bucks and Dishonored plus a bonus gift card for $60. While the RAGE deal is questionable, a $15 gift card bundled with a brand new game is pretty amazing if you frequent Newegg as much as I do.
