Laike’s PC Download Deals 5/17/2013

dark-souls-amazon-saleThis week’s Deal of the Week goes to Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition for $7.49 USD on Amazon.com. This game is part of the Amazon MAYhem sale and is the cheapest price so far for the game.

Dark Souls is hailed to be one of the best games released and famous for being hellishly difficult. The PC edition is plagued with problems relating to the terrible hack port job, locking the game at 720 resolution and 30fps. Thankfully, modders have come to the rescue! DSfix provides a variety of changes to improve the game, including allowing the game to render at 1080 and adding different ambient occlusion algorithms. Be sure to check out our review of Dark Souls if you need convincing.


Amazon is currently running a MAYhem Sale with over a thousand items on sale. We’ve chosen some of the best deals below.

  • Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition @ 75% off  [Windows – Steam/GFWL]
  • Crusader Kings Pack @ 88% Off [Windows – Steam/Amazon]
    • Considered to be one of Paradox Interactive’s best grand strategy games, the pack contains Crusader Kings 1, 2, and all the DLC for Crusader Kings II. This is well worth the price.
  • The Walking Dead @ 60% off [Windows – Steam]
    • Great game, but it is cheaper at Greenman Gaming. Check out the GMG section of this post for more information.
  • The Firaxis Complete Pack @ 83% off [Windows – Steam]
    • This is the frugal strategy nerd’s dream pack. The pack contains XCOM Enemy Unknown, Civilization IV Complete, and Civilization V: Gold Edition for a very good price. Be sure to read our review of XCOM Enemy Unknown.
  • The Battlefield Fan Pack @ 71% off [Windows – Origin]
    • The bundle contains the complete Battlefield 2 collection, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam, and Battlefield 3. Unfortunately, Battlefield 3 Premium is a separate $14.99 purchase. It’s a fantastic bundle, be sure to check out the multitude of Battlefield 2 mods like Project Reality after scooping this bundle up.
  • Microsoft 5-Game Arcade/Indie Pack @ 86% off [Windows – Steam]
    • Although you could argue all day about indie developers being published by Microsoft, its hard to deny that there are some excellent indie titles in this bundle. The pack contains Deadlight, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, Iron Brigade, Mark of the Ninja, and Toy Soldiers. Mark of the Ninja and Deadlight are worth the purchase price alone.
  • Deep Silver Power Pack Volume 2 @ 82% off [Windows – Steam]
    • Deep Silver Power Pack Volume 1 is also on sale, but the second pack contains much better titles. The second pack contains Dead Island Game of the Year Edition, Saints Row 2, Saints Row 3: The Full Package, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, all excellent games I would happily recommend.
  • Desert to the Sea Bundle @ 89% off [Windows – Steam]
    • A bundle that seems to go on sale a lot, but a fantastic bundle none the less. The bundle contains Bioshock, Bioshock 2, and Spec Ops The Line, three fantastically written single player games that deserve a play.
  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent @ 85% off [Windows – Steam]
    • Short of scooping Amnesia: The Dark Descent as part of a bundle, this is the cheapest price. Widely considered to be one of the scariest games ever made, every horror fan should give this game a play.
  • Fable Bundle @ 87% off [Windows – Steam]
    • Contains Fable III and all of its DLC and Fable The Lost Chapters
  • Victoria II: A Heart of Darkness @ 30% off [Windows – Steam]
  • Sega Fun Pack @ 88% off [Windows – Steam]
