Just thought I should quickly let everyone know that there’s a big sale on Sierra titles over at GOG.com this weekend. Titles worth mentioning include the entire Kings Quest series; my favorite series of all time, Quest for Glory; one of the best cRPGs that I never played, Arcanum; the entire Krondor series; and Vampire: The Masquerade. Check it out!
I promise that I will
never probably never again alliterate so much in a future article headline. The excitement of today’s new release on GOG.com simply has me giddy. As you may (but probably don’t) remember, I got my hopes up for a re-release of Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny back in August when Good Old Games announced that they had secured a partnership with EA Games. I have since checked the site religiously on Tuesdays and Thursdays for news of the games release. This morning, at 5:30 AM my eyes happily landed on an announcement that not only has GOG.com released LOL2, they have packaged it with the original title, Throne of Chaos, and priced the package at the killer deal of $5.99. As is always the case with GOG, the title is free from DRM and remains permanently in one’s account after the purchase is made.
While I will be (re)purchasing the title as soon as my next paycheck rolls around, the true irony–and I use the word in a colloquial sense rather than a literary one–is that the game has arrived just days after Skyrim, which has and will continue to absorb every minute of time that I have to spare for the coming months. In fact, if I can pry my self from the world of Nirn for an hour or so, I will be typing up a review of the latest Elder Scrolls title for all of you to enjoy. For those of you looking for a fantasy RPG fix who aren’t able to purchase Skyrim or simply do not have any interest in the title, head over to GOG.com right now and pick up one of Westwood Studios’ greatest.
While I was disappointed to see that old-school PC game digital marketplace, GOG.com, had not yet released a title this morning, my disappointment quickly turned to excitement with their announcement that a slew of classic EA titles will be released starting this Thursday. GOG always does a great job of building anticipation for the release of games that are sometimes decades old, and I simply can’t wait to see what they have in store for us. I’ve got my fingers crossed for Lands of Lore, or Red Alert 2, ooh, or Generals, or pretty much anything by Westwood, or Black and White, or . . .
