    Same here. It rolled over from the previous game to Ultima 7 and by the time my mouse had gone over the button it had changed.

    Its all round a bad idea for a sale imo. I don't mind flash sales, but not limited to copies on an online site.
    Meh, I think it is a great idea for a sale, just not on the internet where people are going to find ways to abuse everything.

    Ah well, still fun watching the numbers tick down.

    I just saw this on the GOG homepage, something is definitely screwy:

    The Medallion of the Imperial Psychopath, a Napoleon: Total War AAR
    For the Emperor!, a Total War: Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai AAR

    Okay, now I DEFINITELY know there are scripts or bots involved. Just saw TA Kingdoms go from 60 to 0 in a second (and the deal itself lasted maybe 40 seconds total). TA Kingdoms is considered "meh", even by TA fanboys (like me :p), but it was under 2 bucks.

    I managed to grab Nexus, but due to some glitch game didn't appear in my library. It took more time for me to compose a message to GOG support, than for them to respond and resolve the issue. I'm impressed.

    Yeah, luck-based sales are not very smart. It's just leaving a lot of people very frustrated.

    I can't even get into the checkout page, even if I want to.
    It's a nice idea that's going cause a lot of frustration and anger on GOG.

    I think it's a great idea. GoG is going to get a lot of hits and a lot of attention from this, much of it positive. I had no problem getting Space Colony HD for $2.50. I think the sales are zooming by even faster than before - GOG may not have anticipated this kind of response. If I see Geneforge again, I'll probably try to get that. If I don't, I'm not going to be too upset. It's almost like a game.

    The freebies are going to be hit-and-miss, but they're free and no one is owed a freebie.

    If they plan to do this all night I can see them repeating some of the deals.

    Saw a free hotline miami, 15 copies left- clicked and was told too late haha. :(

    And I waited for the next deal- literally clicked the instant the freebie popped on screen and nothing.

    Oh dear. We broke it.

    Edit: At least, while Two Worlds II was going for free, I got some 'Sorry, we can't seem to cope' pages, and even an actul 500 server error page.

    Then a lot of people are hilarious. No one owes them cheap games.

    The thing that bothers me about this is that it puts us further down the "buying games as the ultimate game" hole, and feels very close to gambling. Press the button, get a pellet. It's encouraging and preying on poor impulse control.

    It'd actually be pretty funny if people are using bots to grabs the cheaper games. Means GoG could put on the crappest games in their catalogue and just watch as assholes accidentally buy it.
    However, I have a feeling that the counter tends to jump down rather than tick down because of how it updates itself. The free games will just be all about the fastest connection and reflexes though.

    By the same logic, nobody owes anyone freedom from having their poor impulse control preyed upon.

    The humble store sale is killing me. Does anyone know how much longer it will go? My wallet is not safe.
