Get Thief, Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Soul Reaver, and more Square Enix titles 50% off!

If you read the tagline, what more is there really to add? Our Ultimate Square Enix promo offers you the chance to get games from some of the most exciting series with a nice 50% off discount. Square Enix catalog features some of the most impressive gems in the GOG.com offer. Titles that evoke memories and emotions in thousands and thousands of gamers. The character cast of the Square Enix stable alone is impressive enough to make one's heart race. If GOG.com had a red carpet, celebrities such as Lara Croft, Garret the Master Thief, Agent 47, Kain and Raziel, and JC Denton would arrive to walk it on a limousine marked by Square Enix logo. Let's take a quick look at the featured games, shall we?

Lara Croft is the ever-shining star of the Tomb Raider series. Lately her character has undergone some major changes. Here, we give you a chance to spend some quality time with good--erm--classic Lara. Tomb Raider 1+2+3, Tomb Raider: Last Revelation + Chronicles, and Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness sum up all of the miss Croft's early career, for only $4.99 each!

Yet another hero who is a fan of property re-assignment concept, Garret the Thief is now preparing a big return. On GOG.com you can catch up wit all of his adventures, as long as you can keep up with him, as he silently moves through the shadows. Thief Gold, Thief 2: The Metal Age, and Thief 3: The Deadly Shadows let you experience the life of a thievery archmaster, for only $4.99 each!

Also preferring to keep a low-profile, Agent 47 is the main character of the Hitman series. The newest game featuring the bald assassin brought a lot of new ideas to the table, and not all of them met with gamers' appreciation. We give you first two classic Hitman games: Hitman: Codename 47 for only $2.99 and Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, for only $4.99!

That's only a small taste of the Square Enix title you can get 50% off this weekend. Head out to our Ultimate Square Enix promo page, to check out the whole offer!

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.

Also tell him that it's okay to come back. He overreacted, but I'd guess that most here aren't going to hold it against him. At some time or another, just about everyone overreacts, believes or does or says something foolish, acts like an asshole, etc. We're all human. Further, it's not as if most here actually approve of Licurg's comments to him. Rather, most just seem to prefer a more mature solution (ignore him; you're under no obligation to respond to or even read his posts even if they're addressed directly to you... the most effective slight can be simply refusing to give someone any attention whatsoever). There's no reason to think that he can't continue to enjoy and be a part of the forums here or that anyone wants him to leave or will treat him like a pariah (and if they do, screw 'em... they need to remember that they're human, too). Tell him to relax a bit, learn to let the bullshit slide right off without mucking up his day, and come back when he's ready.

It's weird why there wasn't lot of hype for Urban Chaos back then. The game is quality, with interesting concept and plot except for clunky control which is probably a norm for 3rd person title at the time. I guess since there were lot of quality action title late in 90's, Urban Chaos somewhat lost in the mix.

I do remember quite a lot of preview excitement in the German gaming mags. I guess its commercial failure (it did bomb, didn't it?) is what led to it being largely forgotten.

tinyE: If I may jump in for a sec. I've been a TR junkie from day one and played them all up to underworld dozens and dozens and dozens of times. Take the following link and bookmark it. Regardless of if you feel you do or do not need it right now, it is THE BEST TR site on the planet offering every possible patch, walkthrough, bonus, yadda yadda yadda known. It also gives a tidy review of the entire series. Like 011284 said, play them in order, but I would only recommend skipping AOD if you DID NOT adore the others. By this I mean that its got some nasty rough spots and some control issues that a TR freak like myself can overlook but not so much just a casual fan.

Here is that link! Happy hunting...or raiding. :P

Thanks. I bookmarked the link.
Hmm, I just read this nice review of Urban Chaos:

http://www.gamespot.com/urban-chaos/reviews/urban-chaos-review-2531741/

It seems to be another hidden gem, at least for me. I don't recall the game but it looks pretty fun. GOG keeps tempting me. They never seem to run out of ways to do this.

Speaking of being tempted, I am still tempted to pick up Soul Reaver 2 even though I own it for PS2.

Yup it's a good game. A lite version of GTA + True Crime: LA. Very good considering the technology at at that time. Oh, and plenty of random event too when you roaming around the city.

Thanks. I think I might pick those two up.

Ever play Gangsters? Feedback on that seems mixed but it looks interesting to me.

But beware of the control though, it's keyboard only with no mouse support at all. Also, your gamepad might make your character uncontrollable, especially the modern one like 360 and you can't disable it. Have to unplug it on each session.

Regarding Gangsters, i'm sorry i have no experience with the game. But seems like it's one of very few title that deserve the name "Gangsters" on it's cover. Many people still rank the game better than Omerta.
Urban Chaos is a lot of fun BUT it has A LOT of timed stuff in it which some people (myself) totally suck at. I bought it years and years ago and still still enjoy it but while some reviews liken it to a "Tomb Raider" offshoot, it has none of the pleasent meandering walks of TR. It's all get in, get the bad giys, get back to HQ!!!

and ummmm, I hated Gangters, and I don't mean just a little. I really hated it. I seem to be in the vast minority here but just in case you get it and don't like it you won't feel so alone. :)

Hmm, well I think I will save my money then for surer bets. I did pickup Startopia this sale. I think I will let that be enough after all. There are other games on my wish list I will wait for sales on instead. Thanks for the helpful info.

Kunovski: I'm seriously considering getting the Blood Omen series (I have the first one as an original CD so I'm all set :)

anyhow, what's the order I should play the games?

1) Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain
?) Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen 2
?) Legacy of Kain: Defiance
?) Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
?) Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2

can anyone help? :)
The correct order is:
1) Blood Omen
2) Soul Reaver
3) Soul Reaver 2
3.5) Blood Omen 2, if you really want to be complete, but as far as I remember it adds little to the story.
4) Defiance

4) Defiance
There is an official timeline in the extras with Soul Reaver 2, according to that the correct sequence is :

Blood Omen
Blood Omen 2 (400 years after the events of Blood Omen)
Soul Reaver (Millenia at least later)
Soul Reaver 2
Defiance

A Century after events of Blood Omen 2 Kain uses the corrupt Pillars of Nosgoth as the seat of his new empire with refusing to sacrifice / martyr himself and restoring the balance to Nosgoth and he raises his 6 Vampire Lietenants including Raziel.

A Millenium later Raziel evolves and surpasses his creator, for his transgression he is punished and cast into the Abyss

Centuries later Raziel is resurected by an Elder God

So starts the events of Soul Reaver which then immediately follows on with Soul Reaver 2 and finally you have it all tie in together with both characters in Deiance.

Yes but the events of Blood Omen 2 only happened after the events Soul Reaver 2 altered the timeline.

So technically it's BO 1->SR1->SR2->BO2->Defiance

Ivory&Gold: Ten pages? Someone needs to change his Posts per topic page setting!

BadDecissions: I hadn't realized I could change my posts per topic setting; that is indeed an improvement, and the only good thing to come out of this stupid thread.
You're blatantly wrong. I also got a few tips for Constructor to try on my next playthrough.
