GOG Celebrates 6th Birthday With Multi-Day Sale

GOG Celebrates 6th Birthday With Multi-Day Sale

GOG Bday

GOG has launched a special multi-day to help celebrate its 6th year in the games selling business.

Unless you're the one being celebrated, birthday's kind of suck. You have to spend money on presents and treat the person nicely; sometimes you even have to spend extended periods of time with them. All in all, they're just a hassle, made only worse by the fact that they repeat themselves every single god danged year.

Not all birthdays are bad, though. When a company, for instance, or a store celebrates the day it spat forth from the womb of entrepreneurial-ism, it's often the case that the minds behind it will use its anniversary as an excuse to hold sales with the hopes of drawing in more customers. Case in point, GOG is celebrating its sixth birthday today and, in turn, has announced a special mult-day promo event to help commemorate the years of its existence.

The sale, which is geared at "taking [customers] on a little trip down the memory lane," will run for six days. Each day of the sale will focus in on a year of GOG's history by offering hefty discounts (up to 80 percent) on titles that released and were popular during that time period. For the sales opening day, for instance, the digital retailer will be showcasing Unreal Tournament 4, as well as selection of other titles including Beyond Good and Evil and Jagged Alliance 2. The full list of games on sale today can be found on the sale's promo page. Take a peek and let us know if anything in particular strikes your fancy.

i really wish my bank was nicer about buying games from europe. I really want that beyond good and evil first. i want it first.

Heroes of Might and Magic 3 for $3? Sold! I lost the disc for that one a while back, so it'll be good to play it again. Rise of the Triad would be tempting, but I managed to get the disc version to work through dosbox, so no need.

Other than that, I can recommend Earth 2150, its not a conventional RTS, and it can be unintuitive (at least at first), but the gameplay is solid.

Do not be afraid to use cheats on Lost Souls, the campaign is cheap and the A.I. is given far too many cheats of its own. Beating it was impossible in my multiple attempts to do so with each team.
