Spring has sprung and Humble have got deals, hun. Their big spring sale has launched with discounts on thousands of games and, for the next day-and-a-bit, free copies of Dungeons 2 for all.

Steam Winter Sale highlights, hand picked for you and your loved ones by our artisan bakers

Steam’s Winter Sale used to be The Big One, a crazed festival of online commercialism of the likes you’d not see again for another year. Not so much these days, with the robotshop seeming to have sales every few weeks.

It makes life easier, if somewhat less interesting. Still though – it’s an awful lot of discounted games to scour, so we’ve rifled through and found some of the highlights. What a cracking bunch of super-cheap games you’ll find below!

Ubisoft’s Annual Uplay Spring Sale Now On

My calendar tells me we’re now over halfway through April. The Met Office tells me astronomical spring in the northern hemisphere started on March 20. Yet the weatherman told me yesterday that I can expect highs of a whopping nine degrees centigrade here in Glasgow this weekend. I’d swear it was still winter had the annual Uplay Spring Sale not kicked off this week, with big discounts on the likes of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Rainbow Six Siege and Far Cry 4, among others. Which others, you say? Find out after the drop.
