Want to save some cash on a Vita memory card?

Look, I'm not Deal North, but I can point out a helpful sale every now and then, too. Sony's proprietary memory obsession is quite a racket, so anytime we can usher you toward cheaper than usual storage cards, well, we're hap...

This Summer Games Done Quick Humble Bundle is great

Even though most of us are distracted by the Steam Summer sale, you'd be missing out if you passed up on this special Summer Games Done Quick Humble Bundle. Taking its name from the week-long event that's happening right now,...

Keep your eyes on GOG.com to get some free games

GOG.com's summer sale format is something that almost single handily justifies tabbed web browsers. Whilst its range of flash deals have been worth keeping an eye on, this 24-hour Adrenaline Rush promotion will be offering free games over the next 19 hours.

If you're reading this now, you've already missed getting Omerta: City of Gangsters for free but there's still plenty of big discounts happening.

There's Hotline Miami, Carmageddon II, and Lily Looking Through for just $1.99 whilst more recent titles like Kentucky Route Zero and Broken Sword 5 are half price at $12.49. As always, just keep refreshing and checking back every 30 minutes to check what's new.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse is free on GOG.com today photo
Magrunner: Dark Pulse is free on GOG.com today
by Jordan Devore

Have a GOG.com account? You should, if for no other reason than to hit up promotions like this. For 24 hours, the digital distributor is offering first-person puzzler Magrunner: Dark Pulse for free. It's a decent enough game that you might as well add it to your library.

This deal is part of the site's summer sale special, which is also running some tempting bundles today -- the Bullfrog lineup for $9.79, the original Thief trilogy for $5.97, and the Wing Commander series for $9.52, to name a few. GOG.com is doing the hourly flash sale thing, too, so check back in. (Or don't! The Steam sale will be here before we know it -- pace yourself.)

Download Sniper Elite V2 for free on Steam
by Jordan Devore

Rebellion is letting Steam users download its World War II shooter Sniper Elite V2 for free and yes, you get to keep it "forever." The 24-hour promotion is good until tomorrow at 10:00am Pacific.

Sniper Elite V2 is that game in which you can shoot people and watch an x-ray replay of bones shattering, hearts popping, and eyes exploding. In fact, I just learned via YouTube tutorial how to land a nut shot on Hitler -- because that's a thing you're allowed to do.

This is a game I'd likely never buy, but download for free? Sure.
