Now that the full lineup of Nvidia RTX graphics cards and GTX 16-series cards are here, PC manufacturers are starting to offload their remaining desktops with older GPUs. One of Acer's 'Nitro 50' PCs with a Core i5-8400 and a 6GB GTX 1060 is just $630 right now—$70 off the original price, and much cheaper than building the same PC yourself.

Ubisoft is trying to wipe out key reselling with 'silent key activation'

While Battlefront 2 has been on Steam for a long time, this is kind of a surprise—there are some key differences between each game, particularly in the choice of maps, but I doubt many people expected this 14 year-old shooter to pop up in 2019. User AnthonyBF2 has created a guide for getting online with the game, if that's your sort of thing. It's got a launch discount on both Steam and GOG, too.

Memoirs of Magic is a free fantasy RPG made in the Doom engine

Created in GZDoom, Memoirs of Magic is both a testament to the power of the Doom engine, and the skill of the many developers who have contorted it into all manner of unlikely things. As you might expect, Memoirs is at heart a first-person shooter where you pepper critters with bullets, magic missiles, and whack them with a variety of unusual melee weapons. But it's also a big ol' fantasy RPG, featuring seven strange character classes, reams of lore to absorb/skip through, and a diverse world, complete with NPCs, quests, boss fights and even Final Fantasy-style summon monsters to inflict on enemies.
