Even Prices May Die: Magrunner Free In GOG Sale

By Alice O'Connor on June 18th, 2014.

Hey friends, Abdul Alhazred here to tell you that the only thing madder me than me is our prices! So come on down to the Cyclopean Computer Crypt and begin your eternity of gaming.

“Well worth the price of admission,” our Jim said of first-person puzzler Magrunner: Dark Pulse. He had a few reservations, sure, a little dissatisfaction, yes, but overall enjoyed the charms of “Portal with magnets and Cthulhu.” If it was worth parting with your hard-earned money for, why, one would need to have their mind warped by exposure to impossible horrors to not get it for free.

As part of its big summer sale, GOG are offering Magrunner for free to lure people over to have a gander at all the shiny bargains it has lined up. The stars are only aligned for 24 hours, though, and at 2pm tomorrow the offer will escape through a crack in the world.

Ode To Joy: Peggle Free On Origin

By Alice O'Connor on June 17th, 2014.

Ping those pegs! Experience that fever!

Do we really like any of this stuff? We are doing it all ironically, yeah? I mean, guns and shooting and murder and spaceships and walking and wacky physics and animals and Simulators, it’s all a bit much, isn’t it? I’m only doing this because it’s rubbish, yeah?

Perhaps we should think about the affected ‘irony’ that curtain-twitchers insist ruins modern culture, but we can be certain we’re not lost as long as we have Peggle. PopCap’s game has a unicorn and rainbows and a choir and it is lovely and wonderful and brilliant, Alka-Seltzer for irony–ping ping fever and you’re back experiencing joy. If you don’t already own it, it’s briefly free on Origin.

Team Fortress’ 15th Anniversary Gift Thing

By Jim Rossignol on August 25th, 2011.


Oh, I guess this is just about expired, but there’s probably still time to get on Team Fortress 2 and receive your party bag for the 15 year birthday hurrah of Team Fortress. Yes, it is that long since the class-based mod originally appeared, spawning an entire sub-genre of FPS, and some of the most popular games of all time. If you log into TF2 before the 24 hours expires (I am not quite sure how long is left) you will get a party hat (obviously), a noise-maker, and a free cake (remodelled health pack). Mmm, virtual.
