The people behind deal sites like Catch of the Day and Scoopon have decided to branch into digital content — music, ebooks, and most of all games. They’ve just launched their beta of their new site Didgio, which is where they’ll be advertising their deals on just those sort of delicious digital things.

To celebrate the launch, they’ve given us a bunch of codes for some great games like Dishonored, Rogue Legacy and Surgeon Simulator to give away to you! For literally free. Nothing.

If you’re into PC gaming then there’s no escaping the gravitational pull of Star Citizen, the upcoming magnum opus of Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts. Part single-player adventure, part persistent MMO, part rig-melting-beauty, Star Citizen is looking really good (click here to learn more about that).

But how do you get in? Well, you could just buy your way in at the official site of course. But thanks to one very generous games.on.net reader — who has asked to remain anonymous — we’ve got six ships and starting packages to give away to six other lucky games.on.net readers.

Suffering from Poor Headset-itis? Constantly being surprised in every game of Battlefield 3 because your headset accidentally started picking up Classic FM instead of telling you there was a tank rumbling towards you? Well, suffer no longer, because Creative and games.on.net have teamed up to give away 19 Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3D RAGE headsets — one every day, for the next 19 days.

Thanks to BenQ, we’re giving away three — count ‘em, three — brand-new BenQ RL2450H RTS gaming monitors to our adorable gaming audience. These monitors were custom-made in accordance with the direction from some of South Korea’s top StarCraft II players, resulting in an experience powered by a dynamic contrast booster to adjust levels on the fly and keep you at maximum alertness.

Hey, you there! Do you like shooting aliens? In the bowels of spaceships and the dark corridors of abandoned buildings? Of course you do. What about also being those aliens in multiplayer and shredding the faces of your friends? You can do that also, in Aliens: Colonial Marines, which is heading our way on February 12. To celebrate, SEGA have given us 10 Collectors Editions of the game on PC to give away, and even thrown in a bunch of shirts for our lucky winners as well.

Thanks to the excellent folks at Gigabyte, we’ve got ourselves a bunch of fantastic hardware to give away — and we want to give it away to you. We’ve got three prize packs up for grabs, each of which contains a brand-spanking-new Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7970 Windforce Series as well as an Aivia Osmium Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (check out our review right here).

Computer running a bit slowish? Need to give yourself an extra hour to boot up in the mornings, or always lagging behind your mates when it comes to grabbing the gunner seat in the chopper when the map loads? Never fear, Corsair and games.on.net are here with a competition to help you perk up those ailing load times.

We’ve two 240GB Corsair Neutron SSD’s to give away — which you may remember from our recent hardware review as being “a couple of very potent” drives with “blistering sequential performance”. The first prize winner will receive the Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB, while the runner-up will receive the regular Corsair Neutron 240GB.

Bohemia Interactive and games.on.net have teamed up to give away ten copies — PC copies, naturally — of Carrier Command: Gaea Mission to ten lucky games.on.net readers. Gaea Mission is a remake of the original 1988 game of the same name, which you may remember if you used to own an Atari, Amiga or maybe even a Commodore 64. Now, 24 years on Bohemia have remade the strategy classic for modern sensibilities, and they want you to have it.
