How rebellious: GOG weekend deal offers Rebellion games for cheap

GOG logo

This week, GOG’s weekend sale is focusing on Rebellion titles with 60% off 13 different titles of massively mixed quality. Let’s list them, while I quietly snark about most of them!

Empire Earth: Gold Edition is a rather unique little RTS. Empire Earth 2: Gold Edition is a slightly worse RTS. Empire Earth 3 is a much worse RTS. Evil Genius is basically James Bond’s Dungeon Keeper, and although a little tedious, is well worth a play if it sounds appealing. Lords of the Realm: Royal Edition comprises Lords of the Realm, Lords of the Realm 2, and the Siege Pack expansion for the latter, and I never much liked it but everyone else did so bear that in mind if you fancy a mix of turn-based strategy with real-time combat. Lords of the Realm 3 is a straight RTS that is not very good. Lords of Magic: Special Edition was a pretty decent Heroes of Might & Magic-style game. Pinball Gold Pack is a lot of pinball games that I didn’t play.

What else? Ground Control + Expansion was an utterly superb tactical RTS with no base-building. Ground Control 2 is also utterly superb. Sniper Elite: Berlin 1945 is a decent sniper title. Moonbase Commander is one of my favourite games ever, combining Worms-style aiming and shooting with a turn-based strategy/base-building feel. Finally, Judge Dredd: Dredd versus Death is hahahaha no just don’t.

The titles range in price from $2.39 USD to a whopping $3.99 USD, so if any of these sound appealing, there are more expensive ways to spend your weekend.

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.
