Hide Your Wallets! Steam and GOG Game Sales Are Now Live
Gareth Andrews / 5 years ago
Every year we make the same promises; “This year I will do more exercise”, “This year I will eat more healthily”, “This year I will go jogging”. If you enjoy buying and playing your games on your PC though, it’s a little different. Every year you say “I will play all my games which I haven’t completed”, and then the sales start!
Already well into its sales GOG.com offers video games without DRM (digital rights management), letting you download and play your games without any programs running in the background. With games like The Witcher 3 selling for $68.79 (around £44.38) while also offering $14.80 (£9.55) off any future purchases thanks to their regional price difference promise, people are quickly buying up copies of everything from the original Neverwinter Nights Series (D&D on PC, if you enjoy fantasy games check them out) and Spelunky (Indiana Jones like adventures with random level creation) deals are coming fast.
Add to that the Steam sale, an infamous event among its users, with flash sales changing every 12 hours and 24 hour deals knocking off large costs from games like Metro Redux (The bundle containing Metro 2033 and Last Light is only £6.79) and the Naruto Ninja Storm Revolution (£13.59), the will to save your money will change to grabbing the best deals!.
The questions are now changing. No longer do we ask “should I buy this?”. Instead, we ask “can people stop crashing their website I want to buy something!”
Enjoy the games and share any good deals and sales in the comments below!
