Big Deal on the Internet

We're two weeks away from Christmas and we're just in time to bask in the holiday gaming deals.

The big deal of the week falls to the Humble THQ Bundle, where you pay whatever you want and receive some excellent THQ titles such as Company of Heroes along with Darksiders. Even better, if you pay more than average you'll get bonus games like Saint Rows The Third.

Almost tying today's Humble Bundle deal would be Halo 4 on sale at Newegg for $35, which even beats Cyber Monday by $5. At $35, the game is now at it's lowest price ever. That's quite a feat considering it has rarely been on sale since the November 6th release date. If the Newegg deal sells out early, Amazon is letting the game go for $40 with a bonus of $10 instant video credit.

On the second page of our giant list, you'll also find lots of PC download titles that activates on Steam. Perfect if you want to beef up your Steam gaming library. For those games that activate on other DRMs, like Origin, we've also noted accordingly.

Lots of other hot deals including the recently released Darksiders 2 for the Wii U, straight from the THQ store. For today only, Assassin's Creed 3 on both the 360 and PS3 is on sale at Amazon for $33, and lastly there's two upcoming Europe-only PC download deals from GMG on Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed 3, taking 30% off their listed price.
