Isn't the bigger news that GOG has kicked off their "2012 DRM-FREE HOLIDAY SALE"?

Free is better than DRM-Free.

I already own this, but it allowed me to get a gift copy free!

I do like the idea of the new 75% off bundles. The Bullpup one has nothing for me, but I hope one of the other days has a good bundle.

They're okay. Never really cared for GOG's major sales because it's usually just the standard 50% off discount unless you buy the larger packs (some of which are a mixed bag). If people are looking for specific games you're usually just better off picking them out during the year when stuff occasionally hit 60-75% off solo.

Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition is now FREE for the next 48 hours on GOG

I'm glad someone posted this - I was stunned when I came across it. Personally, I'm quite happy that Atomic Edition is now part of my GOG library.

It is interesting that many GOG games are now heading over to Steam - For example, the Tomb Raider series as well as most of the Legacy of Kain titles. Now, Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior have been added to that list. Even so, I prefer the completely DRM-Free versions that GOG provides. Therefore, these Steam additions don't affect my GOG-based purchasing habits.

By the way, I'm extremely tempted by Pid for $4.99 - I'm a fan of GRiN's Bionic Commando: Rearmed, and I want to support Might & Delight. (The team is comprised of former GRiN staff.)

For the CAG's that have tried it, how fun is Pid?

I'm sure this will change soon now that they've started losing their exclusive rights to a lot
of their popular titles and Steam is adding them to their catalog.

Did Steam start the "most everything 50% off, but everyday something specific goes 75% off, meaning that if you buy early instead of waiting until the last day of the sale you're screwed" sale strategy or it it a coincidence that everyone does that now?

No, Gog's sales have been structured this way for a long time. Typical weekend sales involve a 50/75 dichotomy depending on whether you pick up the whole enchilada. Those crazy Poles just spoiled us recently with a number of "everything's the same % off no matter how many you buy" sales, but those have been the exception rather than the rule there.

If you have a Decent/Awesome system buy it. Running that game on full settings AND including the expansion packs, IS A MIND BLOWING STEAL AT $10. Its still well worth the $70 i spent on it at launch (Retail). Have fun :)

Yeah, WTF are you referring too?? The only game within 10 post of yours being mentioned is Duke Nukem 3D!?!

Lol, sorry about that everyone. i Quoted someone who apparently deleted their post while i was replying. i was referring to Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 for $10. The person was on the fence about buying it.

I believe Amazon had Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 Platinum for $5 a few weeks ago. I bought it then; it's pretty fun -- I've just been playing in Sandbox mode though so that I can build whatever I want.

50% off FTL ($4.99) and ARMA 2 ($14.99), 75% Witcher 2 (7.49) today.

FTL is tempting...

FTL is almost certainly future Humble Bundle fodder.

Because if you wait it out, you can get every indie game ever made very cheap by buying bundles! Who can resist that?!

It's a matter of wanting a game... but not really wanting it immediately. Stuff I have on deck to play: Borderlands 2, Saints Row 3, Dawn of War, CoH series, Metro 2033, Witcher 2, Serious Sam 3, Warlock, and probably half a dozen or more other games from past bundles I haven't gotten to yet.

So, yeah, bundle fodder.

There's a difference between $10/$5 want it and want it cheap in a bundle. If I really want it and want to play it now, I'll buy it now. I did that when Hotline Miami hit $7.50. If it doesn't hit that want-now-threshold, well most of us have a sizable backlog and a pretty good and varied collection of games I really should/want to play soon.

I dream in yellow comic sans.

They do for Grimrock, that'll be in a indie bundle (probably a Humble Bundle) for sure. Not sure about Retro City Rampage.

Grimrock is in the Humble Store, it's just a matter of time before it gets humble bundled. Hell, it might even be in Humble Bundle 7, which should go live soon.

Most decent indie games get bundled sooner or later.

Main reason is that it's already cross-platform, unlike Grimrock or RCR.

Heck, they already use the Humble Store to sell the game from their website.

As for my reasons why I'm not buying it now, it's pretty much the same as everyone else's:
I have a backlog that's literally hundreds of games long. I long ago reached the stage where
I won't buy any games that are not 75% or more off, and even then I really have to want the
game. Otherwise, I wait till it's in a bundle or a year or two down the road (everything gets
cheaper eventually).

And, of course, this *is* Cheap Ass Gamer after all.

I'm not saying nothin' about being cheap. I was just wondering if the FTL folks had said something that implied it. But it seems to be just assumptions. Most indies use the Humble storefront these days.

Welcome to Cheap Ass Gamer. For every bit of money we save, no matter how small, that's more that can be used to buy another game to throw onto our increasingly endless backlog.

No, I get the idea of getting games cheap; I don't get the idea of stockpiling a bunch of other stuff that will probably languish for eternity because of $3 savings. Or I totally used to get that and now I'm at a point where I have too many of those deals, not enough time to play them, and I can afford to buy games that come out if I want them. :D

Anyway, today's deals -

75% off "indie" RPGs:

Inquisitor $3.74
Legend of Grimrock $3.74
Geneforge 1-5 $3.74
Torchlight $3.74
The Real Texas $3.74

Curious about Inquisitor myself.

Inquisitor looks great. I'll have to snag that one on my lunch. Already have Geneforge and Grimrock and Torchlight. The Real Texas looks like one of those things that other people would like a lot but I wouldn't.
