Weekly PC download charts: Sale frenzy, 'Scribblenauts Unlimited'

Fourth in the "Scribblenauts" series, "Unlimited" sees players spell out objects for hero Maxwell to use as he sets out to collect as many Starites as possible -- players can not only summon nearly any object they please, but they can also use adjectives to describe them, and splice them together in any number of chuckleworthy combinations.

Elsewhere, some of the year's most well-received games return to high chart positions as a result of sale discounts: "Borderlands 2," "Far Cry 3," "Dishonored," "Black Ops II" and "Battlefield 3" among them.

The "Bethesda New Year Collection," now pulled, finds itself at the peak of GamersGate's listing, after a mis-price let site visitors buy a ten-game pack that included "Skyrim," "Dishonored," and two "Fallout" games for less than $30.

Desura's most popular free game this week was "[REC] Shutter", in which an insomniac photographer finds himself drifting through a haunted asylum.
