Direct2Drive has been very active on the deal scene lately, giving Steam plenty of competition.  Their weekend deal with promo code “sizzle” offers 25% upcoming high-profile games like Brink, The Witcher 2, Battlefield 3, Rage and more.  Check out the list here.  Not a bad time to pick up Brink, which releases next week.

Also, if you’ve been holding out on Dead Space 2 or Dead Space 1, for that matter — check out these good deals at the EA store.  Digital downloads of both copies for $24 and $12, respectively.   I played through Dead Space 2 at launch on the PS3, and found it more enjoyable than the first one, so I’d definitely recommend it at that price.


I have been involved in both computers and video games since a very young age, cutting my teeth (literally) on an Apple IIe and an Intellivision. I've been writing about both for fun, off and on throughout the years, which eventually led me here -- still playing games and casually writing about them off an on. Follow @dab784

  1. Thinking about my recent digital purchases, I realized I haven’t bought anything from Steam lately. Amazon and Direct2Drive has had better and more relevant deals for me. I don’t think I’ve bought anything from Steam since the past holiday sales, which were actually a bit lackluster.

  2. I did just pick up SimCity 4 Deluxe for $5 on Steam, which was a great price for the well-reviewed latest installment in a franchise I haven’t played in a very long time. Should be worth a trip down memory lane. But I agree about the Steam holiday sale. I wonder what they’ll roll out for the summer sale, usually in July?

  3. Btw…interesting that Deus Ex: Human Revolution isn’t anywhere on that D2D sale.
