Make yourself at Rome: Caesar I and II now on GOG

The boys and girls at Good Aul Games have added the ancient ancient city-builder games Caesar and Caesar II to their roster of classics, along with their Chinese counterpart Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom which is less ancient (released in 2002) but still ancient (set 3000 years ago). For years, the only way to buy ’em was to track down a second-hand CD copy. GOG already had a bunch of Sierra’s city-building series on their ethereal shelves, including the later Caesars, so getting these old lads rounds out the collection. GOG are having a wee sale to celebrate. Read the rest of this entry »

Stunt Island, a vital piece of PC gaming history, is back

SWAT 4 isn’t the only golden geriatric to fetch up on GOG lately, you know. Stunt Island joined the ranks of olden wunderkinds on the Steam alternative late last year, but we were too knee-deep in festive fractiousness to cover it at the time. I don’t want to just ignore the charming and ambitious flight sim-meets-movie-making game, so let’s do this now.

Bit early: GOG launches Black Friday sale

Black Friday starts earlier every year, I swear. Commercialisation has ruined this heartwarming American family holiday. Black Friday, I’m sure you know, is named after the wide-brimmed black cockel hats the Founding Dads wore to conceal their identities as they shoved for cheap Big Bang Theory DVD box sets. We’ve already looked a lot of Black Friday hardware and game deals and now GOG have kicked off their own sale too. It doesn’t have many monster savings but you will find discounts on games including Shadow Warrior 2, Bloodlines, Kerbal Space Program, and Inside. Read the rest of this entry »

Witcher 2 & Starbound Among Latest GOG Connect Offer

The Witcher 2, Frozen Synapse, and Starbound are among the latest games that GOG will let you redeem free on their DRM-free store if you own ’em on Steam. The virtuous virtual vendors of vintage (and virgin) video games call this process GOG Connect. The offer comes and goes — though the games are for keepsies — and the lineup shifts, so do have a gander if you fancy some handy DRM-free backups. Read the rest of this entry »

Little Big Adventure 2 Free In GOG Autumn Sale

With Halloween sales so very far behind us, it’s time for the next seasonal gaming bargainorama: autumn! GOG today launched their Monstrous Fall Sale, bringing ten days of cheap video games. They’re kicking off with a freebie too: until Saturday morning, you can nab Little Big Adventure 2 for free for keepsies.

I would very much like digital stores to hold Guy Fawkes Night sales, celebrating how cool explosions are. You know: Just Cause 3, Red Faction Guerilla, and any game with a nice ploofy single-shot grenade launcher. Read the rest of this entry »

Get Spooky With Steam And GOG Halloween Sales

Want some treats this year for Halloween? You don’t have to run around carrying a plastic orange pumpkin bucket (or a pillowcase, if your parents didn’t want to spring for that kind of thing.) You need only look to the Steam Halloween Sale for delicious candies in the form of video games, of which there are a lot. Read the rest of this entry »
