We all like cheap games, right? I usually look around on Steam for sales when the urge arises, but lately, Amazon has been serving up some rather nice discounts on game downloads.
Take Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a game that's been out for all of three weeks and has received accolades from the gaming press (and myself). The download version is on sale at Amazon for $39.99—10 bucks off the regular price.
Amazon is also shaving $10 off the price of Dead Island, which can be nabbed for $39.99. In spite of a mishap with the Steam release earlier this month, the game has a score of 81/100 on Metacritic—and of course, it features zombies on a tropical island, which is a selling point in itself.
There are gaming bargains to be found elsewhere, too. According to Joystiq, the original Portal is available free of charge on Steam right now. Also, pre-ordering Battlefield 3 on EA's Origin download service will get you a free copy of Dead Space 2, so long as you order before September 19. (Battlefield 3 is due out on October 25.)
