If you're among those lucky enough to have this week off, well, I'm insanely jealous. That means you've got time to sit around and play games, which I rarely do. But I can live vicariously through you, and give you three amazing deals on new and classic PC titles alike. Take a look:
1. Valve's Steam service is offering one of my all-time favorites, BioShock, for just $4.99. I've mentioned it for that price a few times before, but if you haven't pulled the trigger, here's another chance. BioShock mixes action, role-playing, sci-fi, and horror to great effect.
2. Also on Steam: The Eidos Collector's Pack for $49.99. This amazing 20-game bundle includes the exceptional Batman: Arkham Asylum, which by itself normally sells for $49.99. Other titles include Battlestations Pacific, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, a couple Tomb Raider games, and Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition. The total value is a whopping $262, and the deal's good until Jan. 3.
3. I love me some zombie-whompin', and right now GameStop has Left 4 Dead 2 for $29.99 shipped (plus sales tax in most states). Regular price: $49.99. Check out GameSpot's review; the game scored a 9.0, making it one of the top-rated titles of 2009.
There you go! While I'm toiling away looking for deals, y'all can go and have some good, cheap fun.
In the meantime, if you've found any killer game deals (for PCs or consoles), feel free to share 'em in the comments.
