You know how you’re always saying that you’ll get around to playing The Witcher games, but when they’re on sale and you’ve got a chance. Well, look, they’re all on sale at GOG, and you’ve got that spare afternoon coming up!
My calendar tells me we’re now over halfway through April. The Met Office tells me astronomical spring in the northern hemisphere started on March 20. Yet the weatherman told me yesterday that I can expect highs of a whopping nine degrees centigrade here in Glasgow this weekend. I’d swear it was still winter had the annual Uplay Spring Sale not kicked off this week, with big discounts on the likes of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Rainbow Six Siege and Far Cry 4, among others. Which others, you say? Find out after the drop.
Opinion is divided over the Darksiders games. There are those who wrongly don’t like them, while far better looking people recognise what a tip-top third-person action-adventure biff-me-do they truly are. And right now they’re 90% off on Steam. I’m not usually one to make a post because a single game is having a sale, but bloody hell, £4.50 for both of them?!
Distribution platform GOG have been running their Insomnia Sales for quite a while now – where limited numbers of games are discounted round the clock until allocations run out. New games with new deals then pop up, and so restarts the cycle where you get loads of bargains and a distinctly lighter wallet.
The Sleepy Sheep Insomnia Sale is now underway, bringing with it an abundance of deals and “a number of games never before seen on GOG.com as well as the best-ever deal on our crowning jewel – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.”
Make it stop make it stopppppppppp. Between general Christmas expenditure, cinema tickets (some places are showing It’s A Wonderful Life, you know) and Steam having a sale three times a day, news that their big Winter discount bonanza is right around the corner is a little gruelling. Good news if you want cheap games, of course.

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.
