Blimey, Darksiders I And II Are Rather Cheap Just Now

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?!

GOG’s Sleepy Sheep Insomnia Sale Now Underway

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.”

Steam’s Winter Sale Will Start Next Week

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.

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.
