The Moneysaver: With A Bullitt

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Tuesday I was turning onto the Delta Highway up here and some shitbag in a Dodge Charger wouldn't let me merge. I drive a Mustang. All I could think about was this scene.

Before we get started, Direct2Drive hit us yesterday with a coupon code just for Kotaku readers: KOTAKUDEAL. Use it to get $10 off any purchase of $49.95 or more. Know what's $49.95? Civilization V, which just released on Tuesday. So there you go: Civ V is $10 off, courtesy of Direct2Drive.

You can also use it to cash in on D2D's Summer Ends sales event, which offers two games at special discounts each day of the weekend. And we've got the roster of them right here.


Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 is $7.50 and Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 Uprising is $4.95 for the next hour. Then Star Wolves 3 is $10.25 and The Stronghold Collection is $14.95 for all of Saturday. On Sunday, get Crysis Maximum Edition for $19.95 and Sid Meier's Railroads for $5.95. All of these prices are at least half off.

There are also more Direct2Drive deals in our weekly ranking of the top 25 PC digital distribution discounts below.
