Good Old Games Week is live on GOG with a sale

By - | Views: 16,033

Good Old Games, what GOG were originally known as, is a bit more than just a name it's a commitment to keeping classics alive and easy to purchase so GOG are celebrating with a sale.

Of course, plenty of the games in their classics collection don't have Native Linux versions because a lot of them are incredibly old. That's fine though really, considering how good the likes of DOSBox, ScummVM and Wine are — most will likely just work out of the box with one of those ready.

It's not just a sale though as GOG has put up some more titles like Re-Volt, Deadly Dozen Reloaded and various titles from Throwback Entertainment.

Along with this, GOG has made a special dedicated page just for Good Old Games.

During the event, GOG said to expect more, so we might see other classics appear.

The aptly named Good Old Games Week runs from April 29 - May 9.

RV-GL is a modern open-source rewrite for ReVolt with Linux support. Recommended!

You're going to cost me money! I was going to pass on Re-Volt because its windows only, now I might have to pick it up!

Last time I checked, a week ran for seven days. As such, I would be hesitant to call it aptly named ;)

Are we really being that pedantic about things?

If you don't count week-ends, that's seven days.

Maybe they're in Faerun. A tenday is a week in the Forgotten Realms.

I appreciated the heads up about the sale. I spent a fair bit of time going through their catalog today, a lot of stuff on sale. I love buying games from GoG, I just wish more publishers would sell that way. (Truth be told, there's not much that I want that I don't already have right now anyway)

I ended up buying Cloudpunk, not on sale and more than it costs on Steam. Worth it to have standalone, offline installers for Lutris though. It sounds like a relaxing game that I'm going to enjoy.

Obviously some are, others aren't ;)
Of course I can only speak for myself, but I feel one has to draw a line somewhere... I'm fairly certain had they called it "Good Old Games Fortnight", there would have been an outrage about deception and exploitation, despite the fact that their idea of a "week" is actually closer to fourteen days.

And just in case it wasn't entirely obvious (this being the Internet, after all), I'm ranting with tongue in cheek. I know; I'll never learn. Have been bitten by myself more than once.
