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.
