GOG is always pulling me back in with these summer sales. My library with them is already substantial. These summer sales still always have me coming back for more. I'll probably pull the trigger on a PC copy of Witcher 3. And I'm eyeballing a few of the indie games they have on sale.

Thank you very much. I grabbed Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Father 20th Anniversary. If I get far enough with the sale experience to get a copy for myself, I'll be sure to pass that along to somebody else.

You couldn't have beaten me by much on that one.

Summer Sale has started.

 

Also, you can grab a free copy of System Shock 2 for the next 48 hours. I guess you gotta log into the GOG client to get it though. Hat tip to Tomasety for calling all of this to my attention over in the main PC thread.

This sale seems to have a bit more going on than GOG's usual and maddening insomnia shenanigans, with the points and badges and freebies. Not only that, but there are some significant discounts on some items, above and beyond the normal 66-75% cap. It seems like GOG is stepping up its sale game. I'm glad to see it.

 

If anybody needs System Shock 2 and is too lazy to install Galaxy or whatever, PM me. I already have it on GOG for some reason.

Are the classic versions of Baldur's Gate/IWD no longer available for sale on GoG? It looks like they've been completey replaced by the enhanced editions. Not that I'm considering moving them from my gamersgate backlog to my GoG backlog or anything. That would be stupid for a drm free game I've already downloaded.

The Enhanced ones include the classic ones as optional downloads.

 

Incidentally they had a promo to upgrade to Enhanced just before they got pulled from separate sale.

GoG has always had some pretty solid sales. I think a lot of people are disappointed by some of their previous sales because it's usually not the newer material that gets the big price reductions. If you are looking for DRM-free copies of recent releases, or bargain-basement prices on smaller indie games, these sales usually don't dip into the 75%+ off range. If you're looking for, you know, old games, than these sales are a much better bargain.

 

In the past I have regularly gotten older games, and bundles of older games, for 80% - 90% off. This makes sense, given the fact that the site is called "Good Old Games." I just picked up the X-Com bundle in this sale. Also, the Witcher 3 bundle. (only 50% off, but still a very good price)

I want to buy all those old CRPGs from that one bundle they had but just expensive overall. I will be buying it when it reaches the $10 price point.

On the store pages
 
About: Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition includes the classic Baldur's Gate: The Original Saga
 
About: Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition includes the classic Baldur's Gate 2 Complete.
 
About: Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition includes the classic Icewind Dale Complete.

I assume those are what you are looking for?

Do the enhanced editions include the same extras that the originals had?

 

I always avoided buying the BG games on GOG as I have the boxes sitting on a shelf near my desk.  But I have been tempted to buy them every time they go on sale.

No, I've been watching sales at all of the major sites, including GOG, long enough to know the difference between a decent sale and a crap sale. GOG has historically had crap sales--maximum sale prices at 66% and a select few items at 75% with no larger discounts. That and lame gimmicks like limited-quantity or -time sales have been a hallmark of GOG sale events pretty much since the site's inception. This one feels like a refreshing change of pace because they've started mirroring some of  the kinds of incentives that Valve used to feature on seasonal sales before they stopped giving a rat's ass about the sales and just said, "Here's a stupid clicker game or a pointless set of daily deals, knock yourself out."

No, he's referring strictly to the Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale games, which are the only ones that Beamdog has released "enhanced editions" of.

Yeah I've never liked those extremely limited "insomnia" style sales that GOG has done in the past along with their larger discount for buying an entire bundle pricing structure.

 

I also find it hilarious that "pausing downloads" had to be patched into Galaxy and was not a launch feature for a game downloading client.  I do like the ability to rollback games to a previous version and to do manual updates only (this has never worked great for me on Steam).

 

I've had trouble getting Galaxy to track my Witcher 3 playtime and achievements also, but I'm not sure if that is the fault of the client or some mod I am running.

What's weird for me is that Galaxy shows about 10 more hours than the game itself does when I check it. Maybe the game is not counting time when you have it launched but haven't actually loaded or started a game, and therefore provides a more intelligent and accurate estimate.

I own the entire Heroes Of Might & Magic Pack as well as the entire Interplay pack in case anybody out there needs help getting something from one of those.

Of the bundles unveiled thus far, these are the ones that I own in their entirety:

 

Star Trek

Rollercoaster Tycoon

Ancient City Builders

Hasbro Classics

Best Of Bulldog

X-Pack

Wing Commander Saga

Unreal Games

Interplay "Complete" Collection

Heroes Of Might & Magic

 

I'm sure some of these are cheaper in Russia for those hearty souls who aren't afraid to use a VPN to get around GOG's interesting interpretation of their "one world, one price" policy. For anybody who doesn't want to go that route though, I'm in a position to help with gifting games from those bundles.

 

Oh and in case it wasn't already apparent to any of you, the bundles this time around don't appear to have a time limit within the sale. That is, they run until the end of the sale once they are revealed. You can see all previous bundles by clicking "More Bundles" near the top of the page.

 

PM me if you need help.

Has anyone had any trouble downloading during this sale? I grabbed 7th Guest, and the download keeps failing in firefox with around 300kb left.

Never had issues downloading from them before. Don't feel like installing the client just to fix a broken download. Hhrrmm.

 

Edit: It downloaded okay tonight.  Not sure what the problem was yesterday.

No problems for me yet. I use the GOG Downloader though, not the client, I much prefer that over DLing through a browser.

There's a XP leaderboard up.  The leader has 1525270.  So, that would mean he or she spent over 1500 dollars.

I picked up a pair of indie games today. Undertale and Read Only Memories. Undertale was only a decent deal, not great. (around 25% off I think) Read Only Memories was marked down to 50% off. I've heard good things about both, so I'm looking forward to playing them.

He's Russian, so he only spent a tenth of that. (XP is given out based on US prices.)

ROM was just $1 in a recent Humble and yes it did come with a DRM free copy.

 

I had an extra Steam key for it (and maybe you can gift the DRM free portion too in Humble? I never tried) but too late now I guess. :-P

Wait - there's actually $1,500 worth of games actually worth buying on GOG (over Steam)?

Well, that would even be news to even me...

Well, GOG needs to get some more exclusives on their service, get more GOG keys into bundles, or come up w/ some better pricing schemes - b/c they aren't even on Steam's level in terms of any of that stuff.

I have also started paying attention and realized their games don't get updated as frequently as Steam's. I wish I hadn't started using them.

GOG galaxy continues to impress: Updated TW3 today from 1.21 to 1.22. Galaxy had to download 13 GB but the patch file size on the website is only 2.1 GB!
