  • Someone over at GOG goofed on the day. It's Tuesday, not Friday. So we should have a release, not a sale. But, for some reason, we have no releases, and a sale. Not even a good sale, 20% off a random mish-mash of games that just received Mac support. I guess they only have Don't Starve to release today, and won't be releasing that until much later in the day. I think GOG needs a massive store wide sale so they can take a break from releases, and build up a backlog.

    The games with 20% off are:

    - Crusader: No Regret
    - Gemini Rue
    - Lords of the Realm: Royal Edition 1+2
    - Pinball Gold Pack
    - Primordia
    - Stronghold HD
    - The 7th Guest
    - Torchlight
    - Total Annihilation Commander Pack

  • Alright, a couple hours late but we have the new release. Which, again, is Don't Starve, for the launch price of $11.99. You know, GOG, if you don't have anything else lined up for release, you could just say "we have nothing lined up today", we'd understand.

  • Indie Gem Promo of the day is Stacking for $5.99.

    Edit: And another new game release with Dyad for $13.49.

  • Sorry for missing yesterday's update, but I really couldn't write up a post without editorializing about my thoughts on GOG's releases as of late... So let's get caught up with the 4X space game Space Empires 4 Deluxe for $9.99. Also check out Two Worlds 2 Epic Edition for the launch price of $9.99. I think it's better than Two Worlds, but that's really not a high bar to reach.

    Now that we're all caught up, let's talk about the weekend sale. It's 50% off a random mish-mash of games. Check out stuff like Fahrenheit, Dangerous Dave, Hotline Miami and more.

    And it's time for This Week in GOG, with a recap and hint. Your hint is that the game should have come out six months ago, or 37 years from now. Not sure what it's supposed to be, but the fine folks over at GOG are saying that their May releases this year are mindblowing, so...

    *sigh*

    If only my last gog purchase had not been such a disappointment... yeah, gog needs some mind blowing releases REALLY soon. :(

    There was a certain Sci-Fi strategy game remake which came out in October last year (that would be the six months) which was set in the future - probably not those entire 37 years though. I had my eyes on this one very much, but it was rather clear that it would only be on Steam.

    Well, let's not jinx and name it before gog crushes all hope. ;) (Was hoping for the new X-com, but the speaker [who has quite the cold!!] says "classic release". Fuck damn.)

  • I was somewhat surprised to find games like this still being sold online.

    It is one of those games what got royally screwed over by reviewers and back then reviewers word meant so much more. I still have my retail box of the game with disc.

    Funny you bring that up, that was part of the editorializing I decided to skip.
