Heroes of Might and Magic 3, Zeus, Pharaoh, Age of Wonders, and other strategies 50% off!

We know that you like to be in charge. We know that you like that feeling of power and the constant pressure of one life-and-death decision after another. Whether you are in the battlefield, commanding your troops, in a warlord's tent deciding the life and death of your subjects, or in a city hall, placing miniature buildings on a map--you flourish. Leadership is your element. Knowing that, we prepared a Superb Strategy Promo to cater to your tastes. Or rather: to nourish that ever-present hunger for power that you have. Let's take a look at two of the games on this weekend's offer, shall we?

Many people consider Heroes of Might and Magic 3 to be the best instalment in the greatest fantasy turn-based strategy series. The conquest of Erathia is still taking place on thousands of computers worldwide, as the game remains universally popular among strategy gamers. Billions of hours worth of collective playtime were, and still are, being put in this title, both in single-player campaigns and multi-player struggles. We offer you the Complete Edition of the game, containing the Armageddon's Blade and The Shadow of Death expansions, for only $4.99.

If you enjoy the turn-based mechanics of the HoMM series, but you would like to immerse yourself even deeper in a complex and extensive gameworld, don't miss Eador: Genesis. When we originally released this Russian masterpiece, we said that the single-player campaign can take up to 200 hours to beat. Our colleague from the support team, who knows the game by heart came asking later how did we come up with such a number. We told him, that 200 hours is the expected playtime stated by the developer. "Must have been a speedrun"--our friend commented, and we believe him (GOG.com support is known to be trustworthy, afterall). So brace yourselves--for only $2.99 you'll get more than 200 hours of playtime.

But that's only scratching the surface of our weekend promo! There are many more games to challenge your leadership skills on the Superb Strategy promo page, so go ahead and check them out now! The offer lasts until Tuesday, March 12, at 4:59AM GMT.

As usual, below you'll find a new episode of This Week on GOG, a short video guide to recent events, promos, and other happenings on the site. By the way, if you haven't already, you might want to follow the GOG.com channel on Youtube, so you won't miss our shows, specials, and exclusive trailers.
Just a quick word of warning. Zeus has speed issues with the Gods animations.

It makes it more difficult and a bit broken in places. It ruins the game for me.

Although if you don't have speed issues please post so we know it's not everybody. 'Cause it looks like it happens to most people.

Edit: oh great the link wont work because the forum is automatically adding a space before the "s".

teshra: Also, this is the first I've ever heard of Heroes Chronicles: All Chapters. Is this just a stand-alone game that they didn't stick a number behind for whatever reason? Or is it some kind of expansion/dlc set? I read the game page and it looks stand-alone and it appears to play just like the other Heroes games, so why didn't they add the proper chronological number for it?
They are standalone campaigns for Heroes 3. No skirmish or map editor, just a set of (easier) campaigns. Still very good if you love Heroes of Might and Magic.

Is it known why gog doesn't have Emperor despite having all the other city builders by Impressions? I have the CD version but I think it has evil securom DRM because it takes ages to start up. Also, having to have the CD in the drive is really annoying.

Can't help but want to say that I want Emperor here too. D:
Nice promo! Got most of them already, but managed to finally pick up Eador: Genesis, thanks GOG :)
Should I go with HoMM3 or KoDP and Eador? Only have enough money to spend on HoMM3 or KoDP and Eador..
so if I have eleventh hour?
I have trouble with myst and stuff..

Edit: sounds evil but if I would (like ever) ever play seventh guest.

Grabbed Stronghold HD at the last minute. Looks like an RTS made for me! I would have grabbed the sequel too if it was up for sale.

I hate my impulse buying habits lol
