[vc_column width=”1/1″ el_position=”first last”] [vc_column_text width=”1/1″ el_position=”first last”]

With most American retailers going a little bananas offering super discounts in the run-up to Black Friday, online e-tailers have also got in on the action and online game stores like Green Man Gaming, Steam and the guys over at the Humble Bundle are running specials right now that will update throughout the weekend. And you know that that means: even us South Africans stand to pick up a few things for cheap thanks to the gloriousness that is the internet.

So, to kick things off here are a bunch of early specials to get you in the mood for some online game shopping this weekend:

Steam has started its Spring/Autumn Sale with a bunch of specials that include the brilliant Watch Dogs for just $4.99 (R50), Skyrim for only $7.49 (R75) and the trippy but clever Antechamber for $4.99 (R50). Scroll down to the very bottom of the page to see a neat little easter egg Valve’s programmers put in that shows off the global nature of the online game distribution business.

GMG The guys over at Green Man Gaming have announced via their emailer that they will also be having specials over the weekend. Before the weekend arrives, though, they’re offering a generous 25% discount on all titles, even already-discounted ones, that you can make use of today.

HumbleIf you love Indie games (and who doesn’t?), there is a lot to like in the Humble Bundle Store’s Thanksgiving specials line-up. You can get the amazing Crusader Kings II Collection for $19.99 (R200) that includes the base game and all of its DLC, the charming and bizarrely-addictive game development simulator Game Dev Tycoon for just $6.99 (R70), and Worms: Reloaded that comes with Worms 2 Armageddon for Android. Fans of slow-paced exploratory games like Dear Esther will appreciate the highly-rated narrative-driven Gone Home that’s 50% off at $9.99. And if you’ve been curious about Peter Molyneux’s latest game, Godus, it can be had for a 25% discount ($14.99).
