GOG’s 2K sale features old school X-Com among others

Over at GOG, the reduced-price trips down memory lane continue, only this week there's a whole lot more X-Com. Specifically, this week's GOG sale range focuses on a lot of 2K's older franchises, particularly from the strategy genre. The entire original run of X-Com games can be found here for less than £2 / $2 each, which is nigh-impossible to not recommend. Then there is…

GOG’s new sale is kind of a Big Deal

Despite having hosted a range of discounts each and every week of the year so far, GOG clearly feels like it's never enough. As of yesterday, the site launched the Big Deal Sale, offering over 200 titles with discounts of up to 90%. Besides the on-the-nose title of the sale itself, there are a number of historically low prices on selected games involved here as…

Cheap Thief and Deus Ex: it’s Square Enix week at GOG

GOG is having itself a Square Enix sale this week, which means a whole lot more than just Hitman and Tomb Raider for once. In fact, if you were to ask me, some of the most interesting things in this sale are the games you may have completely forgotten existed - like Gex, the gecko with attitude, Pandemonium, in which a lady runs to the…

D&D Dark Sun, Ravenloft & Krynn Come To GOG

Dark Sun. Ravenloft. Krynn. All Dungeons & Dragons worlds, and all names I know so well from roleplaying games I never played. In my earliest years of PC gaming, I was limited to games I could beg, borrow or steal from classmates, but I pored through enough magazines to be aware of what was out there and what I didn't have. I can see the…

Own S.T.A.L.K.E.R.? Get It Free And DRM-Free From GOG

The one certainty with news items about S.T.A.L.K.E.R. [official site] is there's at least a 70 percent chance they've been planted by Jim. Thanks Jim! GOG.com continues to blow the horn in support of DRM-free everything with a new game reclaiming service, which you can check it out for yourself in this generously placed link. The idea is that if you bought a game legitimately but the game no longer…

Shhhh: Omerta First Up In GOG Giveaway

If rambunctious crowds have suddenly taken to the streets around your home, chances are it's because of the GoG.com summer sale. The site has kicked things up a gear by naming the next portion of its event ADRENALINE RUSH. I hate using the word 'event' but sales are about more than discounting products, which is why the Steam one seems like a weird competition that…

Rule Britannia: Every Ultima For The Price Of A Pint

That's right - Ultima 1-9, plus the two Underworld games, for the price of a pint. And not one of those fancy craft ales that you'd sup in a tweedy pop-up bar that charges sixteen quid for a thimble filled with 'paprika-spiced apple cinnamon wedges' that taste like rancid Doritos. GOG.com are currently offering the Ultima bundle for $7.14. That's the price of a pint…

Sudo Shock: System Shock 2 Now On Linux

Just a few years ago, people were begging for the System Shock 2 legal situation to be resolved. It wasn't a technical problem, but a legal death trap of rights that entangled its feet, keeping it just out of grasp as we all reached out to save it. And then it was suddenly in our hands, and we could all have the game on the…

Descent Is 19 Tomorrow, And On Steam Today

Yesterday, when I glanced at the new releases on Steam and saw "Descent" I thought, "Huh, someone's used that name again - well, it has been nineteen years since it came out." And then I dropped down dead of old age and horror because it's been nineteen years since Descent came out. I've only just recovered from this death, and looked again. No, it's actually…

Many Questions: System Shock 2 Comes To GOG

Today, Good Old Games announce that they will finally, and exclusively, be selling a digital download version of System Shock 2. It will be available tomorrow. I envy those who can now play for the first time, but there is no longer an excuse not to indulge in yet another playthrough of one of the finest and most frightening games ever made. I spoke to…

GOG Squeeze In One Last Sale Before End Of The World

With only two days left until the end of the world, you really would be wise to finally get around to playing those games you've been putting off. Thankfully GOG.com have recognised this need, and are having an End Of The World sale. For the next 24 hours. But by their clock, they appear to think it's Tokyo's 21st December the Mayan's meant. But surely…

Shake It, Baby: GOG.com Giving Duke 3D Away For Free

Do you want to play Duke Nukem 3D for free? Well, since it's increasingly difficult to get hold of it on floppy disc and copy it across, the most practical way to do this would be to just take it from GOG.com. Cos they're giving it away for free. Sure, it takes some of the thrill away, but at least you won't be destroying the…

GOG Are Up To Something, Teasing Things

I'm probably falling into a marketing trap. The GOG people are watching the Internet for a mention of GOG, and now I've just pinged RPS on their global map of suckers. I don't care. Fill me in on your spreadsheet, if you must. You have my attention. On Thursday, 18:00 GMT they'll be hosting a live press conference on their website to talk about "an…

So I Want To Be A Hero! Quest For Glory I to V On GOG

Twas only yesterday I was letting everyone down by wishing for more Space Quest instead of more Quest For Glory. But as if the mighty Horace felt the need to restore balance to the universe, GOG.com have just announced they've released all five of the classic Sierra adventure/RPGs for ten bucks. Sure, it's not a new one, but you try getting the original versions working.

Old Sneakers: Thief Deadly Shadows On GOG

It's been eight years since Thief: Deadly Shadows was released. And if that doesn't make you want to start slaughtering the young and drinking their blood in a desperate attempt to find some sort of means to stop the passing of time and your constant, constant ageing, then you must already have discovered the secrets of immortality. EIGHT YEARS. Eight years since Kieron and I…

Amanita Sorry To Botanicula Pre-Orders, Give Free Stuff

The decision by Amanita to put out the stunning Botanicula as part of a Humble Bundle on the day of release sounds, at first, like a lovely idea. A brand new game in a pay what you want bundle? Amazing! Except of course for those who pre-ordered it at full price. Personally, I think the $10 it would have cost anyone is a bargain for…

GOG Talks Preserving Value Of Games, Death Of DRM

In what may be a first for humanity since the (admittedly fictional) film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Good Old Games de-aged. Out with the "Old," in with the GOG, as no one's said until now. Or, if they have, people just looked at them funny and told them to go lie down. Anyway, seeing as change is afoot and GOG's trying very hard…
