Welcome back to Games for the Masses, where we help you pay less to play more!  This week we’re going all the way back to the dark days of 2012.  The earth was under siege from an inscrutable, alien force.  Who were they?  What did they want?  We may never know.  But we do know who we have to thank for our salvation: X-COM.  If you haven’t done your part to help save the world, now you can do your part on the cheap.

Other big deals of the week?

  • Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit–I haven’t played it, but critics seem to like it, and it’s only $5.
  • GoG has the entire Wing Commander series half off!
  • Also on GoG, you’ll find Baldur’s Gate II–one of the classic RPGs. A must play if you like modern titles like the Dragon Age or Mass Effect series.
  • All three Bioshock games are on sale for less than fifteen bucks!
  • If you’re looking for something a bit less serious, Borderlands 1 and 2 come packaged together–double the fun!
  • One of the highlights of the entire generation, the conclusion to the Mass Effect trilogy is up for less than seven dollars!
  • Gamers looking for a more cereberal experience might give the beautiful Memoria a shot.

Those are the best deals we could find this week.  If you think we missed a good one, let us know in the comments!
