Another month is coming to a close, as spring is in full swing. Well, it is in most parts of the country, anyway. Several regions are enduring a round of April showers, which means going outdoors many not be the best idea. So it's a good thing that there are some sweet deals on PC games to be found this weekend, for anyone that's going to be stuck inside.
Steam is offering free weekends for a pair of fine games: Company of Heroes 2 and Rising Storm, which just received GOTY content earlier this week. Amazon is having a huge Activision sale that includes games I haven't seen discounted in years, like Prototype, the Transformers Cybertron games, and Singularity. GamersGate is in the middle of a huge Spring Sale, with flash sales rotating in every few hours. And GameFly Digital is offering some dynamite bundles, led by the huge Borderlands Collection that gives you GOTY editions of both Borderlands games and the XCOM Collection that gives you Enemy Unknown, Enemy Within, and The Bureau all in one neat package for $19.99 (after coupon).
