Thursday PC game sales include free game

Getting something for nothing is always a good thing and we have that in today's PC game sales deals.

Amazon.com offers free casual game every day for next 10 days

Would you like to download a PC game for the price of absolutely nothing at all? Then you might want to check out Amazon.com for the next 10 days. The online retailed announced today via its Twitter page that starting today it will cut the price of one casual game every day for 24 hours down to, well, zero. Zlilch. Nada.

The first game up for this treatment is Chicken Invaders 2, a title that looks like what would happen if Galaga got hit with a bunch of cartoony birds. We will keep track of the freebie games as they are revealed.

Tuesday PC game sales include free game offers [Update]

Today we are not waiting around for Steam to offer up its mid-week madness sale. That's because there's a ton of PC game sales and free PC game offers to report on already. We will update this post with Steam's mid-day sale later today:

Portal 2 pre-orders specials now available on Steam; system requirements announced

Portal 2, the highly anticipated puzzle shooter from Valve, is now available for pre-order via Steam. The game has two special deals for pre-order buyers. First gamers get 10 percent off the game's regular $49.99 price. The other pre-order bonus is a free downloadable copy of the original 2007 Portal game. Since the game is coming out for both PC and Mac it qualifies for SteamPlay, meaning people who purchase the PC version get the Mac version for free and vise versa.

There are also pre-order specials for getting Portal 2 at GameStop (special skins for the game's robots in the co-op campaign) and at Amazon.com (a $5 credit toward most Amazon.com purchases)

The Steam pre-order page for Portal 2 also contains the system requirements for both the PC and Mac versions of the game. You can check them out for yourself after the jump:

Dead Space 2 among new one day PC game deals

If you have had a bad case of the Mondays with your boss telling you to work on Saturday and having someone else steal your stapler, cheer up. There are a few one day sales deals you can check out right now:

Dungeon Siege III gets pre-order bonuses and May 31 US release date

Square Enix has now confirmed that the US release date for Dungeon Siege III will be on May 31, a few days after the next game in the fantasy action-RPG series shows up on European shores on May 27. More importantly, a number of retailers have announced their own pre-order incentives for putting your money down early to get the game from developer Obsidian Entertainment.

Perhaps the coolest pre-order incentive is if you get the game via the Steam download service. Those folks will get free single player versions of both previous Dungeon Siege games (developed by Gas Powered Games) for free. Pre-orders at GameStop get two exclusive in-game items (Burning Band of Scorch and Talisman of the Grand Mage) while Amazon.com pre-orders get the Bite of the Arakun in game item and Best Buy pre-orders get the Sacred Heart of the Legion in-game item. Wal-Mart pre-orders will get a mini-strategy guide for the game along with a Dungeon Siege mini-comic produced by Dark Horse Comics.

Oddboxx bundle gets $24.99 price tag

Earlier this week Oddworld Inhabitants announced that the long awaited Oddboxx bundle of all four Oddworld games for the PC would be released sometime this holiday season. Today the developer revealed that the Oddboxx bundle of games ( Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus and the all new PC ports of Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath) will be priced at $24.99.

The bundle will be made available via download on several download sites including Steam, Direct2Drive, Impulse and Amazon.com. However the Steam versions will also add new Steam achievements to the Munch's Oddysee and Stranger's Wrath PC ports.
