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!
You think Steam is the only game in town when it comes to cutthroat gaming prices? Ha, I scoff to the max at your lack of sales knowledge. Retro game ticklers Good Old Games are having another one of their winter sales this year, and to mark off the occasion, they’re tossing a few free games towards consumers, DRM-free baby.
The games on offer? Fallout 1 and 2, as well as Fallout Tactics are available, gratis. You’ve got a day left to grab those games, and I recommend doing so because even if you are keen on buying them some time later, GOG won’t have the rights to them by the end of this year.
Besides the free Fallout games, there’s also the rest of the GOG catalogue that are currently getting price slashed. That’s over 600 games, and includes classics such as System Shock 2 for $5, Zoe’s indie favourite Papers Please for a satanic $6.66, cult hit Faster Than Light for $5 and RPG classic Planescape Torment for $5 as well.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
GOG will also have daily deals in place, where several games will get marked down by 75%, with the community also voting on one of two daily game bundles that will see an 80% price cut. In addition to all that, each registered user will get to choose one of three mystery boxes once per day based on various genres, that will also be deeply discounted or if you’re lucky, free.
The sale ends December 29. And it’s been damn good so far.
