So you’ve probably noticed our upcoming 24 Hour Gaming Marathon to Benefit the Child’s Play Charity, but maybe you don’t have enough games to actually play for a whole 24 hours. Luckily for you, the deal machine is back with what I think is one of the best set of deals to ever grace the pages of Horrible Night. Take a look, there’s at least a month of gaming in here (though don’t play a whole month please, you need to maintain your daily activities).

THQ Hit Collection (PC) – Steam for $49.99
This may be one of the best deals I ever posted, so take advantage. Includes the complete Dawn of War 2 series (worth $49.99 alone) Homefront, Metro 2033, the entire Red Faction series (even Armageddon) and many more. This is the go to pack for new PC gamers and most of these games I can play with you so email me after you get it and we’ll set up a date (only above the clothes stuff though).
Duke Nukem Forever (Xbox 360, PS3) – Amazon for $18.99
If you own a PC and sign on to Steam before 4:00 PM EST today, Duke Nukem Forever is only $9.99 but those of you with consoles still have to deal with a price that while slashed by over 50 percent, still seems too expensive. Sorry Duke, but there’s a new macho man in town and his name starts with an adjective and ends with Sam.
Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection (PS3) – Best Buy for $24.99
I’ve heard nothing but good things about these games and considering Shadow of the Colossus was basically a supporting actor in that Adam Sandler movie where he played a crazy guy, it would seem this collection is held to a very high standard. Here’s hoping that Ico’s role in the latest Eddie Murphy joint is just as successful.
8 Bit Night – Indievania for $4.99
This is a retro lover’s dream in terms of visuals, but the gameplay mechanics look to offer a different twist on platformers (literally, you have the ability to twist the x-axis in the game). I’ll probably suck at it, but it looks like a solid title for people up to the challenge.
Dungeon Defenders (PC) – Steam for $13.49
While the RPG/Tower Defense hybrid may only be discounted 10%, the preorder bonuses include a portal gun for one of the classes and Team Fortress 2 characters as tiny combat assistances. That alone makes it worth your attention and like some of the games in the THQ pack, we can co-op!
Supreme Commander (PC) – Steam for $7.49
I loved the sequel to this game because I constantly fantasize about leading an army of robots across the globe, in a helpful way of course. The expansion Forged Alliance is also available for $ 7.49 and a combo pack including both games is available for $9.99. You don’t just want to be the pretty good commander do you?

Monster Slayers – Free on Kongregate
A simple game in a style similar to Patapon, your goal is to lead a small army on a journey through the countryside to, well slay monsters. It stole an afternoon of two from me, so be cautious.
