Here are some game picks to brighten up your weekend, whether you have only a few hours to play, or you’re in a mood for binging two days in a row (no judging, we’ve been there!).

Let us introduce you to a certain English gentleman and true detective, who you’ve certainly heard of! Let's embark on a mysterious journey with Sherlock Holmes and his trusted friend Dr. Watson in a critically-acclaimed adventure game series by Frogwares. Investigate grisly crimes, uncover the truth, discover hidden sides of London and experience a unique environment of world-famous novels with Sherlock Holmes: Secret of the Silver Earring (-50%), Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper (- 50%), Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened - Remastered (-50%) and Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis - Remastered (-50%).

If you want a breezy escape and new experiences without leaving your home, discover a selection of games by Good Shepherd. What awaits you is a threatening world of covert operations and secret agents in a Cold War setting in Phantom Doctrine (-60%). You could also explore a folkloric Depression era of United States in a gorgeous narrative-adventure game Where The Water Tastes Like Wine (-60%). Oh, and don’t miss out on the indie cult classic Pathologic Classic HD (-90%)! It brings a unique and unforgettable experience that will affect your emotional and psychological state.

Sometimes in life you get such weekends when all your grand plans are falling apart like a house of cards. You don't have to worry, just kick back and relax a bit, as one of these card-based games is something that will definitely make you feel better! Try a great RPG/strategy game set in the Witcher world – Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales (-50%) or Slay the Spire (-50%), that combines rougelikes and card games together, or check out beautifully hand-drawn and recently released SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech (-20%).

BreOl72: Funny - I own "Pathologic Classic HD", but the sale doesn't acknowledge that.
That's because Pathologic and Pathologic Classic are two different titles in GOG library.

Edit: ok, I've just realized my explanation makes no sense, because Pathologic is the game you get automatically when buying Pathologic Classic HD (and not the other way round).

Not a bad week but I'm hoping for a classic next week. I think the last classic was an Activision one so maybe they'll still trickle in, I'm still hoping for CoD Warchest.

tomimt: You know, speaking of Sherlock Holmes, how about trying to wrestle those two Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes games here EA published back in the '90s. Both of them are pretty solid adventure games on their own right.
This. Does anybody know who are the current rightsholders of the games?

Ixamyakxim: Nice sale - a lot of my wishlist is up there. And a lot of stuff I really enjoyed has a pretty sweet discount. Might have to splurge a bit once I figure out what I'm most likely to fire up but I'm really enjoying what I'm playing now.

I had almost burned out on my few times weekly nighttime gaming sessions when I realized why. I LOVE turnbased games but I had been playing a ton of them lately.

So I started up Dying Light - total change of pace from what I've been into lately - and I'm loving it. Nice story where you sort of play a "double agent" - you can see the survivors wanting you to be what you appear to be so badly, accepting you as you take on more difficult tasks.

The parkor is a lot of fun and fluid (climbing down is a bit tough at times, but going over and vertical is awesome) and upgrading weapons with the durability mechanic sort of makes you "attached" to certain ones. Like I have a nasty high teir upgraded wrench crafted to do bleeding damage that I only use in certain tough situations because once they break, they're done. I always have the thing with me ready to go, but I only break her out in a rough spot ;)
I kept looking for (and failing to find) Dying Light in this or another current sale, but I guess you're just digressing a bit about what you're enjoying; glad you're having a good time. :)

On that subject, I don't have much experience with zombie games, but I did notice that multiple people said to avoid Dead Island and play Dying Light instead. Not that Dead Island is on Gog anyway.
Oh Sir The Insult Simulator is easily worth $5, let alone just $1. It's absolutely hysterical but good in short bursts. It plays much like Cards Against Humanity, but where you just keep piling on words with more and more ludicrous extensions.
Some really nice discounts there. Thanks for this sale!

I guess it depends on what kind of an agreement Mythos Software, the developer of the games, had with EA.

LOL just saw this - yup just digressing a bit and mulling over why I might not buy some of the games in this sale juuuust yet. I held off - maybe when the Fall Sale comes around I'll be ready for something new.

I agree with the people that said stick with Dying Light. I played Dead Island when it was given away free YEARS ago with the XBox 360 free games per month thing. I don't know why, but I never quite enjoyed it. It felt sort of clumsy. Getting through hoards of zombies was hard, swinging your big weapons was hard - it never really hooked me. I think I remember some survior mechanics that were neat (where you'd rescue people for a bonus or to have them do stuff) but I could be wrong on that.

Unless you absolutely HATE first person and are an ardent 3rd person fan, I can't see any reason to go back to Dead Island - Dying Light is just (zombie) hoards of fun and the all around superior game.

If you're really jonesing for 3rd person zombie survival action I was a huge fan of State of Decay. I was super excited when it seemed it might show up here, but it never did :(
