The Steam and Good Old Games sales have been ridiculous, as usual. There have been fantastic games at insanely low prices for weeks now, and on the final day we get the biggest hurrah.
So how’s that gaming backlog of yours looking? Did you finally clear some space? Yeah, it’s nice to be able to look at a cleared selection of games when all of a sudden another gaming sale hits you IN YO FA-ACE! Good Old Games is here to spring that surprise on you, but you’re going to have to stay awake to do so.
Good Old Games has a strong focus on DRM-free gaming, as well as fantastic classic games (as the name would imply). However, as they are moving into offering launch day releases, they are also accepting more currencies - and even giving away presents.
Ah, Christmas, the season of generosity and gifting. If, like me, you have been enjoying the Steam sale, you have seen some awesome deals in the flash sales or via community voting. However, Valve decided to go above and beyond, and seemed to have stretched their capacity.
Oh the weather outside is delightful, but living in South Africa is so insightful and since we’ve got no place to go, let my gaming rig glow!
Good Old Games, the awesome website that lets you play fantastic new and old games on current operating systems, has officially launched their return policy. Considering that they are also fully DRM-free with their distribution, this is pretty awesome and gives me hope for the future of digital distribution.
Tis the season, to be jolly, tralalalalala! Wait dammit, that’s the wrong song. While I go right my brain with more blunt-force trauma, get your credit card out and check out these horror-themed specials on GoG and Steam.
I'm a bad hipster - sure, I've got Mac products, but I don't have skinny jeans or any ironic eye wear. Maybe I should start wearing my Gunnars to boost my street cred, but I'm not sure my brain can take it. Oh well, at least I've still got love for the indies - here's all the indie news of the week!
What’s the difference between THQ and my love life? None, because they’re both dead. Now that the former video game publisher is bereft of life and it’s various franchises divided and scattered to the four corners of the earth, it’s time for a little hindsight. Particularly from former THQ boss Jason Rubin, who laments the fact that THQ never made a move into digital markets.
There are plenty of great digital distribution sites on the net right now, such as Steam and Gamers Gate, but one of my personal favourites will always be Good Ol’ Games, or GOG as they’re more widely known as.
GOG has always been that site to visit when you’re in the mood for some classic games, titles which will take you on a nostalgic road trip. They recently relaunched their site today, with more titles than ever before, as well as quite a few more mainstream games for players seeking something more contemporary.
Good Old Games, everybody's favourite digital distribution service for retro goodness, recently passed the six million downloads mark. And having reached such a significant milestone, GOG has decided to extend their gratitude to everybody, by allowing for a free download of the classic puzzle and adventure game, Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templar's.
CD Projecktâ€™s The Witcher was a pretty damned good single-player RPG (and it had boobs!). The sequel, due soon, is being shipped without any forms of overtly draconian DRM (if purchased from GoG.com) â€“ and being a single player game itâ€™s especially prone to being pirated. You might not want to add this one to your list of torrents when it releases next year though, because CD Projeckt will be actively hunting down pirates â€“ who could face fines and legal action.
