Best PC gaming deals of the week

Another week has gone by and with it came the news of Destiny 2, a Witcher TV show and a whole stack of new gaming deals to check out. Conveniently enough, I’m here to take a closer look at that last thing and it’s about the only thing that’s keeping me from playing more Prey. Without further hesitation, let’s go ahead and check out what’s…

I decided to attempt some form of Let's Play/Blather All Over/Preview thing, and well, I'm new to this. Very, very new. The end result is a mixture of description and discovery that hopefully gets the…
