Section updated: Don't forget about your gamer friends that may not know GOG.com yet! Sadly, for the sake of unburdening what servers we have, we had to turn off the option for gifting free games. But you can always just let them know they can sign up with GOG.com and claim a free gift of Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics. On top of that, when they register to our service, they'll receive all the 12 free games we add to all the newly-created accounts. That way your friends will start their adventure with GOG.com with a collection of 15 great games total already on their virtual shelves! Be kind, share the good news! :-)

We'd also like to remind you, that all purchases on GOG.com are now covered with our new 30-day Worldwide Money Back Guarantee, so your holiday gaming shopping spree is safer than it ever was before.

CarrionCrow: Well, if one day could be turned into a super-duper midpoint sale inside a large overall sale, maybe it's possible to see a two or three day insomnia sub-sale?
Do you mean something like "a new set of special offers every half an hour" or somesuch?

Austrobogulator: I understand why they do this (get in before the Steam sale...) but it still makes the sale significantly less interesting...

nijuu: I think its more the case of been a long time member, got most of the games you want... there is less interest in a given sale.... at least im starting to get there myself...
That makes two of us, though I think I am already there.

In fact, the thread is now more interesting to me than the sale.

During the insomnia sale, set amounts of items were placed at extremely low price. Once a title's number of items were depleted, then it'd go onto the next insanely low priced deal. Some games had a window of about 90 seconds before the set amount was sold and they moved onto the next. It ran for 5 days, 24 hours a day. If you wanted something badly enough, you had to stay up for it. You miss it, you're out of luck.

The downside was some titles were very slow movers... so u would be looking at hours in some cases (we all know the ones..) :/

When I'm 82, have Alzheimer's and can't remember my own name I'll still remember some of those. But setting a timer on slow movers could eliminate that entirely. All the speed, none of the lull.

I remember that. I also remember that it was a little hard to predict the time it would take some items (let alone the whule lot) to sell out. So it might be hard to keep it within a certain time limit without cutting it short when time runs out regatdless of whether everything planned for the event is sold out or not.
Besides, you spelled it "insomnia", not "Insomnia" so I was in doubt whether you were referring to the promo or its titular feature.
Got to wonder how long that insomnia deal would have lasted without the incredibly slow movers

Overall, it seems average from the reviews. Some good elements, some bad. For two dollars, it's probably worth a shot.
Ok, so I had Surgeon Simulator on my wishlist as a low priority for the future and while it was on sale I didn't think I'd play it for a while so I figured I'd wait for a future sale instead...

Then I decided to watch the promo video on the GOG homepage for it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KW5IHNH5NU0#t=806

Totally cracked me up, looks pretty funny... couldn't resist it after that. Dunno who that guy is but he did a pretty funny promo there GOG, which ultimately convinced me to buy the game. ;oP Anyhow, if anyone panned the game, watch the video if you haven't, the sense of humour in it is what did it for me. :)

For me it was other way around. I've never considered buying this game and the video confirmed my expectations - the game is not for me.

I have, however, a lot of fun watching him playing Theme Hospital. There are not so many rooms that benefit a lot from making them large. The perfect example is a staff room and yet he made it as small as possible :D And not only he hired just one doctor to operate three different rooms but he also managed to hire the lamest doctor ever :D I swear, similar mistakes happen to me all the time when I start playing any managerial game that I don't know yet. My first game is usually a test to see what's what...
Five minutes to go....fingers crossed for more items to cross off the wishlist.

I own both potential bundles for tomorrow :)
Any opinions of Aquanox? (spell) I'm going to snag those Descent games because while I never liked the series it's been a LONG time since I played them and that was on a shit PC with no game pad so screw it, but I was curious about the Aqua games. I love Freespace but I'm not really good at controlling whole squadrons.
