Seasonal Bargains: GOG Autumn Sale Now On

Fog is rolling across Edinburgh, this morning I slipped on a wet leaf and almost impaled myself on a fence, smoke curls out of chimneys in the evening, tomorrow Britain LARPs V for Vendetta, and video games are on sale. Ah, autumn! GOG have leapt on that seasonal feeling by launching their ‘Big Fall Sale‘ this afternoon.

Along with loads of discounts, daily deals, bundles, and all that, the virtuous virtual vendors of vintage (and virgin!) video games are offering bonus games free if you buy more. Spend £3.29 on anything and you’ll get System Shock 2 free, for starters.

Huah! Total War Sale-O-Trial Weekend Bonanza

I’d have felt bad for Total War if developers The Creative Assembly had chosen to celebrate the series’ fifteenth birthday with only five seconds of Total Warhammer. Poor, lonely, unloved Total War. But wait! Those pranksters threw a dummy party, saving the real festivities for this weekend.

A Total War weekend on Steam brings 75% off the price tag of most games in the series, Steam releases for the original Medieval and Shogun games, and trial weekends offering the full versions of seven Total Wars. Chin up, Twary: they still love you.

Buy! Buy! Buy! Buy! Buy! Buy! GOG Summer Sale Now On

Are we playing Mountain again? I'm basically this mysterious night.

New video games, we know, invalidate old video games. GOG were chancing their luck when they launched selling only old games (even proudly advertising that with the name Good Old Games!) but thankfully saw the light. Who’d play a game from 1994 when you can play the Early Access spiritual successor to the reboot of that game’s sequel? A mug, that’s who.

With E3 and its flood of announcements now only two weeks away, current games will soon become old and old games will become decrepit. Wisely, GOG have chosen now to launch their big summer sale and shift a bunch of soon-to-be obsolete games.

Crusader Kings II And More In Humble Paradox Bundle

Fine PC publisher Paradox have joined up with those Humble Bundleers to offer a pay-what-you-want bundle of- hey, haven’t we done this before? So we have! I think this latest Humble Paradox Bundle is better than the first, though.

As ever, you get a selection of games from a list including Crusader Kings II, Magicka, Knights of Pen & Paper, and Europa Universalis IV depending on how much you cough up.

The Humble Store Spring Sale Is Upon Us

That creaking sound you hear is your wallet tightening at the seams at the thought of another digital PC games sale. You should be used to it by now though, as there always seems to be a sale on somewhere. At the moment it’s The Humble Store’s turn. Its Spring Sale began only a couple of days ago and will run for two weeks, until Thursday May 21st.

You know the drill. Hefty deals, all changing daily, with some games up to 90% off. Which is basically free really, so it’d be rude not to.

Bundle Me Up: GOG Sale Starts With RPGs & Adventures

If you’re one for ye olde RPGs, I imagine you’re neck-deep in Pillars of Eternity at the moment. But maybe you don’t have £35 spare, or you don’t consider dozens of hours of RPG good value for money (or who knows what else?). In either case, hey, look: GOG have a bundle of olde RPGs on sale for £14.80, including Planescape: Torment, Neverwinter Nights 1 & 2, both Baldur’s Gate games, the Icewind Dales, Temple of Elemental Evil. I calculate that to be one squillion hours of retro role-playing.

It’s part of a week-long bundleorama at GOG, with new games discounted each day. Today’s initial lot also include LucasArts games, a wad of Divinity, and a whole rack of Broken Swords.

Hack The Planet: Steam Cyberpunk Sale

On it.

Allow me to establish my cyberpunk credentials: I live in a dystopian megacity block, have blue hair, own two pairs of mirror shades, romanticise being a wreck, and work on the ‘net. Trust me when I say Steam’s cyberpunk sale is pretty great (though not wholly cyberpunk).

30-odd games brimming with hacking, cybernetic implants, megacities, conspiracies, dystopias, neon lighting, and The Man are going cheap. You’ll find, for example, classics like System Shock 2 and Deus Ex for pocket change, and good prices on newer cyber ‘em ups like Gemini Rue, Jazzpunk, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and Transistor.

The Spend Times: Steam’s Holiday Sale Is Live

It’s Chriiiiiiistmas, as Noddy Holder screams every morning to the terrified residents of Toyland, no matter what the season. Beneath a mechanical tophat festooned with mirrors and baubles, he gambols and grimaces, throwing colourfully decorated parcels containing tiny tartan trousers and other glam trinkets.

Steam is a lot like young Noddy, spreading goodwill whatever the season with its regular sales. But now is your chance to grab gifts for one and all (yourself included), because the Holiday Sale has just begun. Highlights below.
