GOG.com, that good old games retailer that deals exclusively in DRM-free games is hosting a massive games sale this week, and it’s absolutely certain that at least one game you want, no need, is at a cut price right now.
That’s because the theme for the sale is “GOG’s Most Wanted,” and each and every game that’s discounted is taken from the most popular items on GOG users’ wishlists. It might not be Christmas, Halloween, Easter or even Spring, but you don’t need a special calendar occasion to enjoy a sale now do you?
Prices on the Most Wanted Sale can go up to 85% including The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which is a great lead-in to the store’s most popular wishlist item, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and its various expansions.
Coming in a close second at the time of this writing is Divinity: Original Sin 2, arguably the apotheosis of CRPGs in its modern form, with Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition, Homeworld: Remastered and Grim Dawn following closely behind.
The sale also includes heavily-discounted classics Freespace 2 and Deus Ex, critical darlings like Owlboy and Superhot and modern classics like Shadowrun: Dragonfall, Legend of Grimrock II and Thimbleweed Park.
GOG.com’s Most Wanted Sale is live now, and runs until April 23, 2018. Keep in mind GOG.com does not adjust pricing for your region. Therefore, prices may be better or worse than they are for your region on Steam.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now free to play and now has a battle royale game. A game mode that grabs the core concept of battle royale while giving it that CS:GO spin.
“This has been coming for years,” opined Jason Schreier. “Activision and Bungie have had a rocky relationship since before Destiny 1 even shipped. It's also incredible news for those of us who love Destiny and want to see it thrive.”
Epic Games was able to strike a deal with Ubisoft to launch The Division 2 on their new online store instead of the biggest one available today - Steam.
With Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice not having an online component, players can actually pause the game, which sounds weird coming from developers From Software.
Metro Exodus will feature an in-game photo mode, allowing players to take photos of the bleak yet stunning post-apocalyptic Russia.
Just Cause 4 feels like you're living in and advancing the plot of a B–movie, and that's amazing. Wherever Rico goes, there's bound to be action, excitement, and more importantly, explosions.
I updated my Guild Wars 2 client and tripped into the rabbit hole once again, going through the Path of Fire expansion one more time and loving it.
All-in-all this was a good year for Warframe, with a string of major patches that brought in much needed fresh air. While some of the more hardcore players may cite the changes as “the devs coddling the noobs,” I believe that this is just part of the natural progression for a game that’s trying to acclimate to a growing playerbase with varying skill levels.
I was able to play Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at a PlayStation event and the posture system plus the various gadgets found in the character’s prosthetic arm got me excited for From Software’s next title.
Playing Prey on hard feels right. The tension is constant but the amount of resources available is enough for me to see this through. The story is intriguing but feels like it could fall flat anytime now, but that's okay. I’m loving my stay in Talos 1, and I’ll probably be here longer than expected.
