GoG Battle of the games sale

This is pretty cool. Every day they have a vote between 2 games. Winner will be 60% off and the Runner-up will be 40% off. And then 2 more games get put up. This'll go for 17 days. I just missed out on Fahrenheit being $2.39 graaaarrr.

Currently its a battle between Gothic and Arx Fatalis.

Not to mention Soul Reaver 2 for $5.99


I went with Gothic because I already own Arx Fatalis. Their last sale was an easy one, Serious Sam. I was never a big Postal fan, the series never appealed to me and felt too immature for its own good.

The Last Express beat Broken Sword for the 60% discount. No surprise as its the superior game. $2.39, fucking get it fi you never played it before.

New games up, UFO Afterlight vs Jagged Alliance 2. Pretty sure JA will win this one.

Nobody would have voted for broken sword anyways really, they gave it out for free a few months ago.

Current game battle, the excellent Realms of Arkania 3, vs Septerra Core. I'm going to guess Core wil win this one out since most normal people have played the arkania games. Core wasnt too bad.

3 hours till the current voting ends.

Lords of the Realm: Royal Edition

Stronghold Crusader



It looks like stronghold is going to win it. I'll admit I'm a little disappointed. But its an excellent game. The first stronghold was good but had some issues with time based missions. I could not fucking finish some of them. Horribly unbalanced at times. Crusaders removed all the time mission crap. So happy. Excellent game. Lords of the Realm though is a totally different style of game. Love that they include the first, second, and expansion in this. I somehow managed to miss this series since at that time I was focused on my psx/saturn. Looks awesome. Going to grab both of them.

WOOHOO! $7.58 for 3 games and an expansion pack. Thats like 2+months or gaming for me if I whore through them. Most likely 4 to be fair. I love this store.

New one up-

The Whispered World

Trine


Chances are World will win because most people already got Trine.
