TR Member Perks!

GOG.com, one of the most famous digital retailers for PC games, is running one of its weekend sales with games up to 75% off. What makes it different this time, is that the 30 games on sale have been handpicked by TotalBiscuit. Love him or hate him, the Cynical Brit is one of the most popular videogame critics out there and he choose 30 of his favourites titles to put up on sale for the weekend ( even if one would have expected 60 from Mr. Bain  ).

Here’s him explaining his choices:

Let’s look at the list of the games on sale (the links point to TechRaptor’s reviews of those games):

  • Dustforce (75% Off)
  • Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition (69% Off)
  • Nexus: The Jupiter Incident (75% Off)
  • Unmechanical (75% Off)
  • King’s Bounty Franchise (75% Off)
  • Perimeter (69% Off)
  • Giana Sisters + DLC (76% Off)
  • Luftrausers (74% Off)
  • S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat (69% Off)
  • Risk of Rain (75% Off)
  • Mount and Blade: Warband (69% Off)
  • Act of War: Gold (50% Off)
  • Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena (66%)
  • Master of Magic (65% Off)
  • Psychonauts (75% Off)
  • Wasteland 2 (50%)

  • Don’t Starve + DLC (65% Off)
  • Pillars of Eternity (33% Off on both editions)

It’s not the first time that TotalBiscuit collaborates with GOG. He made streams on their channel before and, as he rightfully discloses in the description of every GOG-related video, GOG.com is the sponsor of his Starcraft 2 team: Axiom eSports.

The sale will end on Tuesday July 21 at 4:59 AM GMT.


Quick Take

Personal tastes aside, it’s hard to complain about TotalBiscuit’s picks. In a way or another, the games he choose are a wonderful specimen of their genre.

As a personal addendum, I wholeheartedly reccommend you pick up The Longest Journey (which is not Dreamfall 1 -frowns at TB-), Psychonauts, Duke Nukem 3D, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat and Mount and Blade: Warband. The other games are wonderful too ( I heard 4X enthusiasts call Age of Wonders 3 one of the best instances of turn based strategy ), but the ones I mentioned are the ones I would reccommend to anyone is only tangentially interested in that kind of genre ( based on my personal tastes of course ).

What you think of this sale? Do you trust TotalBiscuit’s picks? What would have you picked instead? Let us know in the comments.

  • NorBdelta

    OOoooo, I am still recovering from the steam sale…

  • Carla

    I liked his picks. Had quite a few of them already in my library and now added some more ^^
    Was very surprised, that he knew Zeus which is a great (if old) city builder, that I would recommend to anyone who likes this kind of stuff.

    “…even if one would have expected 60 from Mr. Bain.”

    HAH!

  • mbits

    Man. Just not many more titles on GOG that I don’t already have (I have about 800 titles on gog)

  • Alex

    I kinda got pissed at GoG for the Hatred thing… sticking to Steam.

  • hurin

    Try reading the comment section. A lot of salt from TB haters.

  • NovaSethyr (´・ω・`)

    Man I wanted to see at least a little of the salt that was on the comments. Hilarious stuff, man. Stil glad to have a list of the stuff on sale.

  • drachnon

    I like the list. Quite diverse in genres, creators/publishers and generally really good games. Of course it’s also a list of games I mostly owned already over several platforms 😀

  • Dr. Evil’s Brother’s Evil Twin

    I honestly think that the only reason they didn’t stock it was so they wouldn’t have to deal with the controversy. They said themselves that they did like the game when they tried it out.

  • Dr. Evil’s Brother’s Evil Twin

    Such a small minority though.

  • Luigi Savinelli

    I think it’s probably because they are holding a strict “No VM18 Games” policy. Steam used to enforce it too and I think Hatred is the first time they broke this policy of theirs

    The man’s got taste.
