I certainly didn't expect to come away with so many games - most of them not being games I've already owned in some form! - and I know I probably wouldn't have spent as much if not for the very nature of the sale egging on my desire to have something extra after what would often be several hours of waiting (I'd say at least half of my purchases were made within the first few hours of me watching the sale).
I may not be able to spend much on their inevitable holiday sale, and I probably won't be inclined to bite on anything without a discount greater than 60%, but between this and a half dozen games through their charity promo, I'm tickled.
Yeah, it seems the more modern indie games aren't as popular as the classics at GOG.
Between the innumerable indie game bundles and GOG's own mega-sale bundles that put these games at roughly the same prices or even cheap, it could be that people are too reluctant to bite for fear of getting burned, even over a mere dollar or two. Given RCR's good reception though, I'm still amazed that it took so long to clear out last night.
Called in to deliver pizza in a few, looks like Hotline will hold the fort down during the busy period for me
I had to go out and about for a bit, and either my phone or the 4G service was being all kinds of wonky, so I was afraid I'd miss out on something good - but things sorted out and I nabbed Wing Commander 4 before that depleted. Oh happy day.
I only ever nabbed actual retail copies of the Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale series, along with ToEE. GOG's been a blessing for the child in me that never got his shot at several old games. Though the majority of the games I've bothered to install and play, I already played long ago. Ha.
I should've known a quick trip to Kroger wasn't gonna burn nearly enough time for this to pass. Off to bed I go... I did have a big ol' drank so maybe I'll wake up relatively soon having to piss my brains out. At least I got something tonight.
I will say this, they've been pretty good about putting up games that won't move while I've been at work. There I was stressing about working from 2-10, and everything that came up was either selling at a crawl or something I already had (but not both, it just so happens).
Time to Not Starve on some pizza while I wait for 63 more copies of this game to budge.
(Side note: If you have a Brixx in your area, it seems like many of them do 2-for-1 pizzas after 10 PM, and that's something any Cheap Ass can get behind.)
I'm guessing they'll probably do it again for the winter sale.
Ugh, just reading that gives me heart palpitations. If they adopted a format where they instead put an item or a few items on sale for the span of an hour or two, that'd be more to my liking. But of course.
