Jagged Alliance 2, Sacred Gold, Flatout and more Strategy First Games 60% off.

How do you call a promo that features about 20 awesome games? As any other given week, we've put all the sale parameters in our Artificially Creative Marketing Enhancer 5000 so it would generate a nice promo name for us, but to our surprise the only output it gave us was: ~20 Awsome Games (yes, with a typo). We tried rebooting it, updating the drivers, adding some additional cooling to the creative chip, and even threatening the damn AI with early retirement in the junk pile behind the GOG.com bunker. All in vain. ~20 Awsome Games is all we could get out of it. Strange glitch. But, what the hell, we decided to go with it. So, let's see what set of games made such an impression on our Marketing Enhancer, shall we?

If you are a strategy fan with a significant turn-based combat inclination, Jagged Alliance 2 is a title you just can't miss. Leading a squadron of mercenaries and micro-managing all the details of their missions is both fun and challenging. The Enigmatic T considers this title to be one of the best games of all times. Find out why!

More of a fantasy fan? Here's a treat for you. Sacred Gold is a brilliant hack-and-slash title with an open world, varied player classes, legions of nasties to slay, and a pretty original and interesting story-line, told from the perspective of different characters. The game comes complete with all the updates and the Underground expansion pack.

Or maybe you need to satisfy your lust for adrenaline? Check Flatout, an amazingly diverse racing game sporting a realistic physics engine, powerful cars, and many different play modes. This is the game you want to play when you just need to feel that racing rush!

But that's only the tip of the iceberg, as the uninspired but accurate name suggests you can get almost 20 games with a nice 60% off discount this weekend. Head out to the promo page, and check out the fantastic selection of Strategy First games yourself.

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.

TurnipSlayerr: Sorry about this.

JMich: No worries, more or less what we assumed. Any chance of us learning who the new owners are? Or anything we can do to help (bear cavalry for example)?
Bear cavalry are always helpful, they'll be a big upgrade from the sheep cavalry I brought to the office.

Please send them to GOG headquarters and we'll direct them towards any troublesome partners.

In other news, does anyone want decommissioned cavalry mutton?

Keep it, the bears will have to be fed something. Or will you be feeding them the troublesome partners as an example to the others?

I'm pretty sure that's what they're for. Although, as an American, I believe I'm required to feed them only the arms.

There go my only friends. Damn you, TET ;(

aluinie: sacred is a good action rpg with a lot of play area worth buying alone.
Couldn't agree more. It is also one of the few games I've devoted enough time to finishing which says a lot in my books.
No way, is Daikatana actually going to be released on GOG? Despite all the bad things i've heard about it, I almost want to grab it to see if it's really that bad, assuming this isn't just another troll hint of course.

G-Doc: Or... maybe that's the reaction we wanted from you! :-O
Please stop these cruel mind games, Dr. Evil! I can see that finger near the corner of your mouth!

JMich: And now that we have a blue post here, can we get a comment on Cryostasis?

G-Doc: I know nothing. I just press random buttons and words come out. Then I take them and post them in random places.
Could be a turing test not really a GOG employee at all just clever little ruse. I'd say there are people falling for it :)

TurnipSlayerr: The rights for the game have changed hands meaning we're unable to keep selling it.

We're working on getting it back though and will try to return it to sale as soon as possible.

Sorry about this.
Are you working on getting XIII back too? Considering how often it was in the top ten sellers/top of the shooters page I I'm surprised such a popular game would go at all.

XIII is based on a comic series (3rd party licence). It will be hard, if possible at all, to bring it back.

So, you're ... arming the bears? And disarming the troublemakers?
avatar
Miaghstir: So, you're ... arming the bears?
Well, there is something about a "Right to Bear Arms", or is it "Right to Arm Bears"? Not really sure about that...

Mostly arming the bears. There's no right to troublemaker arms, just a right to bear ones.
