Weekend PC download deals: Tomb Raider and Dawn of War

After the daily sales that THQ has been running and the irresistible discount on Duke Nukem Forever… yeah, anyway, it’s almost a relief that the weekend has come again — but then you look at Steam and realize your wallet still isn’t safe.

On Steam this weekend, there’s big discounts on some of the more recent Tomb Raider games developed by Crystal Dynamics, celebrating the franchise’s 15th anniversary. You’ve got Tomb Raider: Legend, Tomb Raider: Anniversary, and Tomb Raider: Underworld all reduced by 66%. I have to be honest, it’s a long time since I’ve considered playing a Tomb Raider game but Crystal Dynamics’ efforts have been fairly well praised so this offer could be tempting.  

THQ is rounding off its week-long sale with a big 50% discount on the Dawn of War franchise, including all DLC and expansions. To top things off, Dawn of War II is free this weekend so if you’re on the fence about whether or not to buy the game, play it and make your mind up. If you’re in the UK and you’re wanting to save some cash on either downloads or physical copies of game, you need to keep an eye out on Simon Julian’s blog where he keeps track of where you can save some hard earned cash on some great games.
