After what seems like an interminable amount of agony and suffering (also known as a work/school week), it is time to grasp at the safe refuge that the weekend offers. To celebrate such a momentous journey and the survival of those of us who made it, and a fond memorial to those who didn’t, let’s grab some games on sale.

This weekend, Steam is going to be throwing their biggest Free Weekend event to date. It begins today at 10 AM PST and offers free access to 10 of the more popular titles on Steam. This not only gives a great opportunity to try out some games risk-free, but also a chance to pick up other enjoyable titles on major sales.

This week we have another batch of games for sale. Last time we plumbed the depths of Amazon for some great deals, we found Assassin's Creed IV for $15, Civ V for $10, and other affordable titles. To spread the love of great savings, we decided to see what deals Newegg has this week – now that they've revamped their game software efforts – and we got lucky. It seems both 2K and Ubisoft have some major title discounts right now. 2K’s ends on 10/17 and Ubisoft’s ends 10/14.

We listed a few of the best deals below, but be sure to check them all out.

Fascinating race, the Weeping Angels. The only psychopaths in the universe to kill you nicely. No mess, no fuss, they just zap you into the past and let you live to death. The rest of your life used up and blown away in the blink of an eye. You die in the past, and in the present they consume the energy of all the days you might have had, all your stolen moments. They're creatures of the abstract. They live off potential energy.

Reddit user samasaurus6 has managed to design an amazing Minecraft script using 1.8 command features. The weeping angels from Dr. Who can now hunt people without requiring anything beyond the basic Minecraft install. Unfortunately, these don’t kill you nicely… they just kill you. Dead. This mod allows users to create a great horror map, especially if some of the suggestions in the Reddit thread are added to the kit. Placing these fearsome foes with some identical, inactive statues will definitely increase the creep factor.

There is a very good reason to not consume certain substances, especially not right before going to sleep. Human Resources from Uber Entertainment reminds me of those reasons. I've always had a thing for end of world scenarios – the bigger they are, the more violent they are, the better. Human Resources is a game that brings the best of the worst imaginable to gaming, just like HR brings the best of the worst to the workplace.
