Steam value-bundles THQ games

Get 12 titles for 65 quid.

Steam has clumped THQ and Relic games together into great money-saving packs.

For USD 99.99 (GBP 65), one can enjoy a dozen fruits from the THQ tree, resulting in a saving of around USD 147 (GBP 95).

This Collector Pack bulges with Company of Heroes and expansion Opposing Fronts; Titan Quest plus add-on Immortal Throne; Dawn of War Gold Edition and expansions Dark Crusade and Soulstorm; and S.T.A.L.K.E.R..

Juiced 2, Frontlines: Fuel of War, and the Full Spectrum Warrior games are also in there. But every value pack needs padding.

You can by Frontlines, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Full Spectrum Warrior plus add-on Ten Hammers as part of an Action Pack, too. This costs USD 59.99 (GBP 39).

Alternatively, for strategy fans, there's a Relic Super Pack, stuffed with both Company of Heroes games, Dawn of War Gold Edition, and Dawn of War: Dark Crusade. This costs USD 49.99 (GBP 32).

Incidentally, Steam is halving the asking price for Titan Quest: Gold Edition to USD 9.99 (GBP 6) until Monday. Inside are the original game and expansion Immortal Throne, both of which we recommend, especially at that price.

Still, none of those bargains come close to the Valve Complete Pack, which stuffs 22 games - including Left 4 Dead - by the developer into one USD 99.99 (GBP 66) box. That's a whopping saving of GBP 157.
