There’s been a subtle hint of therapy around PCGamesN towers this week. Red Candle Games’ Steam chart topper Devotion and its phantoms spooked us up real good a couple of weeks back. So, it’s been ruddy satisfying kicking demon butts in this week’s top entry Devil May Cry 5 with swords, guns, and, in one instance, a motorcycle. Our resident hard(ware) man Jacob said in his Devil May Cry 5 review that “Capcom’s brawler is deeply old-school and made for fans first, but its new character will entertain newcomers and keep them coming back for more”. How’s that for exercising your demons? If demon hunting isn’t your scene, though, then you can still exorcise your money from your bank account with plenty of deals this week.
Admittedly, it’s hard keeping on top of what’s going on with new releases, deals, and expansions. Because of that, we round off our weeks by hopping into Steam’s top sellers and games by concurrent players chart to see what the biggest and best titles are each week. While it does allow us to catch significant new trends in PC gaming, the main reason we do it is to spot some juicy bargains to spend our pennies on during the weekend.
Things aren’t quite as plentiful where deals are concerned this week, but we do have some lovely new releases to make up for it. On top of that, we even have a new addition to the concurrent player list with Devil May Cry 5. So, without further adieu, here’s what’s doing the business on Steam this week.
STEAM TOP SELLERS
Here are the Steam top sellers, week ending March 8:

Devil May Cry 5 is so nice that it appears twice in the Steam Top Sellers this week, with the Deluxe Edition coming in at second place.

We also have the Rainbow Six Siege Year 4 Pass and last week’s number two entry Dawn of Man, which is 15% off.

No doubt a hint to what will be topping the charts next week, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is sitting in eighth on the merit of its pre-orders alone. Rounding us off is Railway Empire – no doubt aided by a massive 70% discount and by the fact that it’s one of our best train games on PC.

Capcom has capped off a wonderful week with Devil May Cry 5’s launch that has seen the hack-and-slash game come in at seventh on the concurrent charts. Apart from that, however, the top half of the table is entirely unchanged with DOTA 2 still riding off the wave of DOTA Auto Chess’s five million strong player base.
