Weekend DealShockers: Need for Speed, Assassins Creed, Another Humble Indie Bundle and More

This weekend, as usual, there are a lot of games at low, low prices.  Whether you need a break from Battlefield 3’s beta or just want to try something new, there are a ton of great deals out there.  Hit the jump to see the awesome amount of sales taking place this weekend.

To begin with, there is a new Humble Indie Bundle, this one is called the Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle featuring Frozen Synapse (obviously) and bonus game Trauma.  In addition, if you beat the average, which as of typing stands at $4.67 cents a purchase, you get five extra games, Trine, Shadowgrounds: Survivor, Shadowgrounds, Splot and Jack Claw.  Splot is still in development, but will be delivered when it is completed, and Jack Claw is a cancelled game, but you get to play the prototype.  So, another awesome deal, and even if you weren’t planning on picking anything up these weekend, $5 can’t hurt, and you get to choose where your money goes.  Donate it to Child’s Play charity?  Throw it at the developers?  Give it to the Electronic Frontiers Foundation?  Tip it to the people who set these bundles up?  It is up to you.

If you already own all those great Indie Games, and want something AAA on the cheap, Direct2Drive is having a pretty awesome sale.  Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, which admittedly does seem to go on sale every week, is only $7.50 today, and worth every cent if you like your cars arcade-like and fast.  EAs most recent Medal of Honor is on sale for $4.95 if you cant wait for the full version of Battlefield 3.  The fantastic RPG from BioWare, Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition is on sale for $7.50.  If you love Battlefield: Bad Company 2 a lot and want to expand that game on the cheap, the expansion Battlefield:Bad Company 2 Vietnam is on sale for $3.75.  If shooters aren’t your deal, and you prefer to run a soccer team, then you’re in luck, as FIFA Manager 11 is also on sale for $9.95.

Over at Newegg.com, you can prep yourself for the newest Assassins Creed by playing through the original two games.  The Assassins Creed 1 & 2 Ultimate Collection is on sale for PC for $10.  While it doesn’t have Brotherhood, Assassins Creed 2 should be required playing before jumping in to Revelations this November.

Steam’s Weekend Deal is Blood Bowl Legendary Edition.  The game, normally $40, is on sale for $8.00 this weekend.  If strategy or sports is your thing, then you may want to consider snaggin this game.

Finally, while it is not really a deal, remember that the Battlefield 3 Beta is ongoing and completely open for all three platforms; PS3, 360 and PC.  It is in the PS3’s and Xbox360’s respective Marketplaces, and the PC download can be found here.

Personally, I will be on the Battlefield 3 Beta until they stop it.  It’s running up and down, but today the servers and game were smooth.
