Weekend Sales Friday April 8th
Well, it seems like the digital distributors decided that today is going to be shooter day, because just about all of them are trying to get you to buy some FPS game with a daily deal, or weekend sale. The Electronic Arts Store is selling 18 shooters, and DLC packs for half off. This is definitely something to check out if you haven't grabbed all of DLC for Mass Effect, or your favorite Battlefield. Of note is the Bad Company 2 Digital Deluxe Edition. This includes the game and the Vietnam DLC at a higher price than buying them separately, but it does unlock many features. Something to consider for n00bz just jumping into the game. And if you never bothered buying the Pinnacle Station DLC for the first Mass Effect game, you might be tempted by it, now that it's just three dollars.Meanwhile, OnLive.com is selling the Unreal III Titan Pack for $4.99 today only.
