Yesterday GOG kicked off the Star Wars Day celebrations with a Star Wars games sale, which also brought back the classic Star Wars: Battlefront from 2004. That sale is still going until May 9. Today, we get two other sales, one for classic Epic Games titles from the 1990s (mostly), which, believe it or not, are not Epic Games Store exclusives. In fact, some of these games are only available from GOG, but some are also available on Steam. The other sale is for THQ Nordic titles, some of which are classics, and some are recent releases. So check out our selection and if you want pick something up for that digital backlog.

First up is the birthday boy Jazz Jackrabbit Collection ($3.51 – 33% off) completing its 25th anniversary. You play as a murderous green bunny on a mission to save the princess Eva Earlong from Devan Shell and the Shellian Terrorists through platformer levels. It’s as 90s as it gets, with the most absurd plot and protagonist imaginable. If that’s right up your alley, you might also want to pick up the Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Collection ($3.51 – 33% off) and have the full collection.

Unreal was one of the most influential first-person shooters from the 90s, along with DOOMQuake, and Half-Life, and it was the first game using the monumental and influential Unreal Engine, though it bears little resemblance to the engine as it is today. So you can grab Unreal Gold for only $1.33 (70% off) for that sweet collector’s value at least.

If you want to collect the rest of the classic Unreal games, you might also want Unreal 2: The Awakening Special Edition ($1.96 – 70% off), which is the 2003 sequel to the original Unreal, though it might not be bigger and better as you’d expect.

Two other Unreal games available are Unreal Tournament GOTY ($1.33 – 70% off) and Unreal Tournament 2004 Editor’s Choice Edition ($1.96 – 70% off), which, as the title implies, are more multiplayer focused with arena tournaments, but they also include single-player campaigns.

Finally, you might also to pick the Epic Pinball: The Complete Collection ($1.82 – 33% off) for that classic arcade experience on your modern PC. It includes 12 pinball table with lots of challenges and that cool 90s aesthetic.

The Epic Games sale will run until May 6, 10 pm UTC, so be sure to grab the games while you can if you’re interested.

Then you might want to check out the THQ Nordic sale, which has all kinds of action and action RPG games, plus a dab of strategy if you’re so inclined.

ELEX ($9.54 – 60% off) is a unique science-fantasy RPG from legendary German studio Piranha Bytes, the developers of Gothic and Risen series. While it didn’t do so well at launch, it’s definitely worth checking out now that the game has been patched extensively, and it’s sure to be a thrilling and challenging action RPG experience for fans of Gothic, but also in the vein of The Elder Scrolls and Fallout.

Darksiders Warmastered Edition ($2.29 – 75% off) is the first in the demonic hack-and-slash action series where you’ll have more than plenty of creatures to slash and mutilate in every possible way you can imagine. The Warmastered Edition is a recent remaster that enhanced the game considerably with support for every possible graphical option you can expect from today’s modern games.

Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition ($3.66 – 75% off) is the sequel to the original where you’ll also have fun tearing your way through hordes of demons and fiends of all kinds. The Deathinitive Edition, beyond the brilliant dad pun, also includes graphical enhancements for modern PCs and systems, same as the Warmastered Edition.

Darksiders III ($24.91 – 50% off) is the latest chapter in the franchise, this one where you’ll play as FURY, the first female protagonist in the series, and hell hath no fury like FURY. While it wasn’t as well received the first two titles, it’s still a solid hack-and-slash game worth trying. If you need more of a full package you can also get the Darksiders III Deluxe Edition ($33.57 – 50% off).

SpellForce Platinum ($0.89 – 80% off) was the first in this fantasy RPG-RTS hybrid where you embark in epic fantasy adventures in a world full of magic and battles. For $0.89 this is definitely worth the price.

SpellForce 2 – Anniversary Edition ($1.31 – 80% off) is the sequel to the original SpellForce, and you can expect more of the same, but bigger and better in every way, if you’re a fan of the series and the genre.

SpellForce 3 ($9.54 – 60% off) is the latest chapter of the SpellForce franchise, and it is touted as the perfect blend between RTS and RPG. It will also depend on how fond you are of the series.
