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.

jamyskis: "Eador: Genesis"

Did that just magically appear? I had no idea it was on the website...
That was released a whole back :D

Unless I am sleeping on the job, games don't magically poof in from another dimension...it would be AWESOME if they did... we could have, I don't know, System Shock 3 from an alternate Earth just show up or something :D

gandalf.nho: Thinking in get Eador: Genesis, how is the difficulty?
The game is said to be tough as nails. Russian nails, mind you.

Johnmourby: This weeks hint, could it be Dark Fall: Lost souls? It's hardly a classic but the Enigmatic T did sound like he was making a spooky, ghosty noise.
Nah, to me he sounded just like he always does. :-)

King of Dragon Pass is awesome. I heartily recommend it especially if you can get the triceratops-like creature to ride into battle! :D

Sargon: The only one I don't own is Zeus, which is because I really dislike the graphics and setting, but I presume that it plays as good as Caesar III and Pharaoh.

Licurg: Actually, Zeus is superior to either the Caesar or the Pharaoh games, I recommend getting it.

JudasIscariot: King of Dragon Pass is awesome. I heartily recommend it especially if you can get the triceratops-like creature to ride into battle! :D

Licurg: They're called Earth Shakers...
I was never lucky enough to get them :(.

JudasIscariot: I was never lucky enough to get them :(.

Licurg: Really? Because I get them all the time. Try exploring more. Also, I believe having a shrine to Maran Gor increases your odds to find some, but I'm not sure.
I never have time to explore...those horse nomads are always rudely knocking at my door >:-(
