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.

I'm glad to see that you love precision in your countdowns.
Edit: sorry for the bad quality of the pic, it was taken with my tablet.

mistermumbles: So is Jagged Alliance worth getting even if I already own JA2 (though I've yet to play the latter)?
You do know that you can now play JA1 using JA2, right? Head over to the pit for more information.

DCT: Yeah because there going to 1.Do such a obvious clue and 2. "hype" up a crappy release such as that.

keeveek: I guess you're gonna be disappointed :P And Daikatana isn't that bad. I hate when people project some opinions from the 90s to the game's actual quality.

When Fallout Tactics was released, everybody said "OMG IT'S SO BAD", when Homm4 was released everyody was like "OMG WHAT A CRAP" , the same with M&M9 or Ultima 9, and neither of them is an actual crap game. At least not in my opinion, and in case of MM9 and U9 I played them only after patching, so it changes a lot.
Oh yes because when someone has a opinon that is shared by others but directly opposes yours obviously their following others opinions, I mean how could anyone who actually played that game or Ultima 9 and the like could possibly think it's crap. Oh please look if you like the game that is fine but that doesn't mean it's either that people are wrong for thinking so. I played it and it was awful the AI was braindead, the guns were not that great the level design was pretty bad.

Hmm, interesting....
I do have JA2, but have been waiting until I had the chance to play 1 first.
Is this like Baldur's gate, where you can play 1 using the engine & interface of 2?
If so, don't you need both games?
avatar
Rodzaju: If so, don't you need both games?
No idea actually, I'm gathering beta testers it seems :P
I don't think it's needed, but the installation instructions do seem a bit weird. I think it uses mostly JA2 assets, along with a pack of faces and voices for Deadly Games mercs. Take 15 minutes and verify it, then play an hour, then remember to tell us as well :P

I'll give it a go.
However, just like BG, I'm not sure it's right if you don't have the first game....
JA2 has some really weird game mechanics . Once you begin to play hours can be lost before your very eyes.
Well worth the asking price right now to pick up a back-up copy.

The original is very old, the game itself is a bit simpler, definitely less guns, AI could be better as the opponents are sometimes very easy to get disposed. But strt with Jagged Alliance 2, play a bit and then and instal mod 1.13.... I was overwhelmed with the changes (even after spending more than 400 hours with JA2).

F4LL0UT: Darn it, I wanted to make that comment. >:(

Anyway, decent promo. Already own most of the stuff I'm really interested in but I've been in the mood for some HoMM and HoMM-like games lately so I guess I'll use this opportunity to finally get Disciples.

G-Doc: Gameplay-wise, I found it much more demanding then HoMM titles. I heartily recommend it!

The tilde (~) means "approximately".

Cruel joke of the day: fr33kSh0w2012. That's it. That's the joke. Maybe there was a punchline about trolls, but I couldn't be bothered to recall. You're not supposed to laugh. Crying and/or facepalming are both acceptable.

Can you take the disrespect for lesbians elsewhere? Not cool and not funny.
