This week’s SPECTACULAR GOG SALE is a loud and noisy one, full of guns and explosions and cheesy one-liners. Which is my attempt at saying “it’s a shooter sale” without being dry and boring.
From now until Tuesday morning, GOG is offering 21 shooters at 60% off. I’m not sure I’d call a few of the games shooters (System Shock 2 is a survival-horror RPG with shooting, and Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is more of a stealth/melee combat game) but most of them fit the bill. I mean, you’ve got the Unreal and Unreal Tournament series, Painkiller Black Edition, the first two Far Cry games, some tactical shooting with Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon, and so on and so forth.
There’s a bunch of good stuff in there, but the big one is probably System Shock 2 for $3.99. I mean, we even did a podcast special on it with two of its developers, Jon Chey and Dorian Hart. We don’t do that sort of thing for many games, you know.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
