GOG has a sweet deal for this weekend involving games and movies. Titled the Devolver Game & Watch Bundle, 10 movies and 5 games are included. Games include Shadow Warrior (2013) Serious Sam (First and Second Encounter) and Hotline MIami. Motivational Growth, Pixel Poetry, and Super Game Jam are included on the movie side. Each item in the bundle can be purchased seperately, which are already discounted by 50 percent for this bundle. However buying all 15 items brings this $138.85 value to just $13.75. That's almost cheaper than a trip to Taco Bell. You can check out this awesome deal here.
