Slightly later than billed, here's our pick of today's best time-sensitive Steam sale bargains. Some of these deals can either be found cheaper elsewhere or tend to crop up regularly (such as the Men Of War offers), so enjoy our edited highlights.

Assassin's Creed II is the game that launched Ubisoft's series from pure potential to absolute dominance. It's still a cracking free-roaming kill-a-thon, and for £3.74, you'll even get the deluxe edition with some extra DLC. If you already own the standard edition, you can optionally upgrade for an extra 99p. Check out our Assassin's Creed II review for more details.

Indie Bundle V rocks my world and makes me uncomfortably aroused. For £6.99, you'll get the stonking Gemini Rue (who says adventure gaming is dead?), Greed Corp, The Tiny Bang Story, an Ys RPG and Audiosurf. Mmm.
