Those looking to pick up a couple of games on the cheap should head on over to Origin, GOG.com, and Humble Bundle, as the selection is incredible, as are the deals. At Origin in particular, Battlefield 3 is being sold for a mere $5 for the standard, and $20 for Premium. In addition, all other Battlefield games are on sale, along with a good bulk of Origin’s catalogue – minus the newest releases. I picked up Need for Speed: Most Wanted for $15, but passed on the DLC that costs more than the base game. Sheesh, EA.
Over at GOG.com, a huge chunk of the catalogue has been marked at 50% off, but the best deals reside with the Alan Wake series ($5 for the base game and expansion) and the Dungeon & Dragons series – $21 for Planescape: Torment, Baldur’s Gate 1 + 2, Icewind Dale 1+2, Neverwinter Nights 1 + 2, Temple of Elemental Evil, Demon Stone and Dragonshard. Other notable deals include The Witcher 2 at $10, Faster Than Light at $5, and…
…Torchlight for $0. Go and get it.
If those sales somehow can’t appease you, the just-launched Humble Bundle “with Android” 6 has launched. Games here include Aquaria, Fractal, Organ Trail: Director’s Cut, Stealth Bastard Deluxe, and Pulse (Android only) for whatever price you want to pay. Pay more than the average ($4.57 as of the time of writing), you’ll also score Frozen Synapse and Broken Sword: Director’s Cut.
Note that Origin’s sales end tomorrow, while GOG’s runs until July 5th. However, Torchlight will remain free only for the next two days. The site will be worth checking back to each day as well, since there will be featured daily deals marked at 85% off.
Come on Steam, where are you with your summer sale?
Update: Indie Royale has also launched a new bundle this afternoon, featuring Really Big Sky, Eufloria, Runespell: Overture, Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII for $4.36+ (as of the time of writing).
