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

Sale-o

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.

It's the usual digital distribution sale dealio: squillions of discounts, bundles, and all that. New deals will appear everey 12 hours. Head over to GOG to join in the bargain-o-rama.

The opening lineup includes SpaceChem for £0.69, Pathologic for £1.29, Mount & Blade: Warband for £3.19, Botanicula for £1.29, Telltale's Game of Thrones series down 40% to £13.79, the Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale Enhanced Editions all for £15.87, a pair of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.S. for £6.58, and a load of LucasArts adventure games including Sam & Max for £10.83.

It has freebies/bonuses too. Folks who spend at least $1 over the course of the sale will get SimCity 2000 thrown in too, at least $20 gets you S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky (the least-good S.T.A.L.K.E.R., sure, but still!), and $50 will get you the X-COM-y Xenonauts on top of whatever you bought. That's certainly a simpler way to handle bonuses than the daft challenges and stickers and goodness knows what else Steam does nowadays.

The GOG summer sale will end on June 21st. What catches your eye in the starting lineup, dear reader?
