GOG, Origin, and GameFly Sales

Nothing beats welcoming the summer days with free and discounted games.

Ahead of the Steam Summer Sale, GOG launched its own "2013 #NoDRM Summer Sale" with discounts on over five hundred games - all DRM-free. To ramp it up an notch and build hype, they made Torchlight free for 48 hours (through June 19th). Also, each day they'll put up new deals on their homepage that will be available for a 24-hour period. The sale runs from now through Friday, July 5th.

Another pre-Steam sale is the Origin Anniversary Sale with discounts up to 70% on select games sold with everyone's favorite DRM (lol). DRM preferences aside, you can find solid discounts, like the Battlefield 3 PC download for only $5 and Crysis 3 on PC for only $20. Unlike GOG's sale, the Origin Anniversary Sale isn't strictly limited to PC games, so Dead Space 3, Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel, and Need for Speed: Most Wanted on Xbox 360 and PS3 are going for only $28 apiece. Furthermore, PS3 and Xbox 360 games ship free with a minimum $25 total sale. The Origin sale is good through Wednesday, June 19th.

On Monday, GameFly launched another round of sales that stack with coupon on select PC download games from Sega. They probably should've just named this sale "Total War games and four others" - out of eleven discounted games, seven are from the Total War series. GameFly gave them all a hefty 75% off instant discount, but on top of that, there's a checkout coupon code that will ultimately mark the games down 80% off their MSRP.
