SUMMER SALE ON GOG.COM (until June 20, 12:59 PM UTC)
Seems like GOG is changing their strategy this year. Instead of giving away multiple free games based on the amount you’ve spent, only one game is being offered after the first purchase. This is fair and reasonable since the game being offered is Rebel Galaxy.
I immediately liked Rebel Galaxy the first time I saw its trailer. It has a space-cowboy vibe that reminded me of Joss Whedon’s Firefly. Plus, having Blues Saraceno’s “Evil Ways” play in the trailer’s background was a great idea. I’m not yet sure if I’m going to like the game, but I’m looking forward to getting it anyway.
Now the only thing I have to figure out is which game to buy. Should I get a classic game that is not available on Steam?
There’s also the possibility that a Summer Sale for Steam and Humble Bundle may be right around the corner, so I have to keep a close eye on my budget. It will be easier to keep my wallet safe this year since I still have several games in my backlog—including Overwatch—and I’m not inclined to get new games at the moment.
Besides, Gwent is now in public beta and I’d like to check that out too.
Incidentally, GOG Connect is back. I got AI War: Fleet Command and UnEpic added to my library of DRM-Free games for free. Thank you, GOG! GOG is love.
I spent about $5 on the recent GOG Summer Sale, having bought Arcanum and Alpha Centauri.
Arcanum is an old-school steampunk RPG. I only played a few minutes, but I liked it. I have the feeling the game’s lore will enchant me. There are patches available that fixes some bugs and improves some features.
Alpha Centauri is exactly what I expected from a Sid Meier’s game: addicting and incredibly fun. I have only played a couple of hours so far, but I can tell I’m going to love this game.
