A code to activate the Windows PC version of Batman Arkham City GOTY on Steam is on sale for $7.50 on Amazon.com until May 30, 2013.
The GOTY edition of Batman Arkham City includes new gameplay, maps, playable characters and skins (including 1970s Batman).
It's worth noting that the PC version of Batman Arkham City is the only version that runs in full HD (assuming your PC is up to the task). The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions natively runs in 720p and upscales to 1080p.
Sale Price: $7.50
I still can't decide if I like Batman Arkham City better than its predecessor Batman Arkham Asylum. The larger locations in Arkham City are fun to explore, but the tighter locations in Arkham Asylum are a lot more tense.

A code to activate the Windows PC version of Resident Evil: Revelations on Steam is on sale for $37.49 on Green Man Gaming, if you enter the following code at checkout: GMG25-55FJ7-ADQ3P
Please note that voucher is valid until 3PM UTC on May 24, 2013.
Steam are currently selling that game for the full list price, making that deal the best on the web.
Sale Price: $37.49 (25% off)
Although Resident Evil: Revelations is better than Resident Evil 6, the PC version of Revelations isn't worth the list of $49.99... considering that game is a port of a 2 year old Nintendo 3DS title, that can be found for under $20. At least with that deal you won't be completely ripped off.

I had recently purchased this game, and at first I was disappointed by the poor level scaling and weak weapons, but once you reach a certain mission the game evens out. I suggest that you build up your experience points by killing the same enemies early in the game to compensate for that flaw in the game.
