Cheap Gamer Deals

1 Aug

For a little time now, I’ve wanted to share my love for sales and cheap games with the internet at large. This is how I’m going to do that. Today – 8/1/13 – there are a ton of great games on sale for cheap prices. Thanks to Humble Bundle and Steam, I’ll be tell you what and how to get your hands on it.

The Best

The best deal available (and ending on Sunday) is  the Quakecon Pack available through Steam. Offering a whopping 45 games, this bundle looks pricey for the cheap gamer at $89.99. In actuality, the normal price for these games would be $343.99. You get the 45 games at 75% and it includes all the Elder Scrolls games and their DLC. If you bought just the Elder Scrolls Games (and their DLC) at full price, you would pay more than the price of this entire pack.

This pack offers:

  • Dishonored (and all DLC)
  • Doom 3 (and all DLC)
  • Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition
  • Fallout: New Vegas (and all DLC)
  • RAGE (and all DLC)
  • The Elder Scrolls II: Morrowind Game of the Year Edition
  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition
  • The Elder Scrols V: Skyrim (and all DLC)
  • Return to Castle Wolfenstein
  • Wolfenstein 3D
  • Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth
  • Commander Keen
  • Doom II
  • Master Levels for Doom II
  • Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders
  • HeXen II
  • HeXen: Beyond Heretic
  • HeXen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel
  • Quake II (and all Mission Packs)
  • Quake III Arena and Quake III: Team Arena
  • Rogue Warrior
  • Speak or Destiny

All these games are being offered on Steam at either a 25% or 75% discount sold by themselves if you (like me) already own many of these titles.

Next Best

The next best deal is the Humble Deep Silver Bundle from the lovely folks over at Humble Bundle. As of this writing, the average price for this pack of games from Deep Silver is a mere $4.95. For those who don’t know about the amazing Humble Bundle, they offer a variety of goods and you pay however much you want for those games. If you pay above the average price, you get additional games (and they’ll add more later). This time, if you give them $25 or more, you get the offered games, the bonus above average games and a game normally $40. This deal will be available until 8/12.

The bundle includes:

  • Saints Row: The Third (and the soundtrack)
  • Saints Row 2
  • Risen 2: Dark Waters (and the soundtrack)
  • Sacred 2 Gold (and the soundtrack)

Paying above average adds:

  • Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition
  • All Saints Row: The Third DLC

Paying $25 or more adds:

  • Dead Island: Riptide (and the soundtrack)

Donating to Humble Bundle also allows you to donate to the charity Childs Play and/or The Red Cross.

Runner Up

The runner up for great deals is the Humble Weekly Sale. While the Average purchase price is only $3.36 as of this writing, the games being offered aren’t the best. Still, it’s a very low price for six games. This deal will be available until 8/8.

In bundle includes:

  • King’s Bounty: The Legend
  • King’s Bounty: Armored Princess
  • Men of War
  • Men of War: Red Tide

Paying above average adds:
