GOG.com is having a sale for the duration of Gamescom - 40% a number of titles and the Witcher 2 for $29.99.

I've got my eye on Master of Orion 1+2 and Jagged Alliance 2.

"The original game for $4.99, or the "Game of the Year" edition for $7.49. Each of the game's four DLC packs are discounted to $2.49, with the four-pack bundle costing $7.49"

I was all excited until I realized there's no Mac version and I don't have the minimum graphics equipment.
PS: Stupid link cutoff. The article is about Borderlands.

Dammit! I'm trying to save money and then Steam goes and has Mirror's Edge on sale for $5. EVERY DAY I'M PARKOURIN'

Oh and I have Civ 5 but haven't played in a bit with all the other games I have. I'd be up for a game if there's a way to play over time and send moves back and forth since I don't usually have 4 to 8 hours free at a stretch to play a whole game.

Yeah, but so far as I can tell, it just lets you play it until the 20th... You can't get a permanent copy of it.

It's permanent if you download it (adding it to your account) before the 20th. It's essentially the same as the promotion they did last year when the Mac Steam was released.

GoG has all the Tex Murphy games 50% off this week. I was HUGE fan of these back in the day. Old school cheesy-acting FMV-driven pixel-hunting adventure games with early 3d graphics. GOOD TIMES.

There are people who played Riven? Do they have a support group?
PS: Good Old Games is nearing 6 million downloads. The person who downloads the 6 millionth game will receive every single game on the website for free.

Meanwhile, for 48 hours AFTER the download #6,000,000, everybody gets a Broken Sword game free! Broken Sword being one of the best of the old-school point-and-click adventure series.

Whoa.

Alpha Protocol is 2 fucking dollars on Steam right now.

So, this game has its share of problems but this is a really ambitious espionage action RPG from the people who made Fallout: New Vegas. Absolutely FANTASTIC characters, good player customization options and one of the best cause and effect conversation/morality systems I've seen in a game.

If you don't like the game? Fuck you, it was 2 dollars. I played the HELL out of this game and really enjoyed it.

Sean, you beat me to the punch on Alpha Protocol. I'm going to be picking that one up for sure. In addtion, GOG.com has ALL of the D&D games on sale this weekend. The best part? The more you buy, the cheaper they get!

Seriously, all you people freaking out about the new Deus Ex should be slobbering all over Alpha Protocol. Until human revolution came out it was the closest to a solid Deus Ex experience you could get on a current gen game.

If my memory holds, that game flopped hard due to incredible bugginess, correct? Has that been fixed?

I know they released a single update for it on PC but I'm firmly in the "As someone who has worked in video game QA for over 10 years this game isn't any buggier than any other game you've played recently" camp.
