Do you like simulation games? Do you like building things? Things such as buildings, cities and even life-forms? Yes, I am talking to you, you megalomaniac. If you fit this bill, go buy GOG.com’s weekend sale!
What does this strange bundle contain that it impresses people wanting to play God or mayor (or gangster controlling the city)? Well, for starters it has the wonderful, adaptable and deep Creatures series, that I as a biotech student have been yearning to play for quite some time now. All three games have a list price of $9.99. However, with the 50% discount applied, they come out to $4.99!
Then we have the managerial simulator Constructor which pretty much explains itself. Taking the role of a real-estate developer, you soon will find yourself caught in the midst of resource and human-resource management! Darn those workers getting in way of your tycoonery! This one is listed for $5.99 so it comes to a sweet $2.99 for this one!
Lastly we have the almost-successor to Constructor called Mob Rule. Remember the Roaring Twenties? Of course you don’t you weren’t even born then (and probably, neither was your dad). This comedic look into the gangster rule of the 1920s is as engaging as the original game, and with the same list price, you wouldn’t mind playing them both for the price of one, would you?

This is the 3D arena shooter with bad-looking orbs with legs that go about shooting things randomly. Being the spiritual successor to the massively popular BaboViolent 2 (which is free, my friends) this game promises oodles of fun while delivering its money’s worth and that was when it was priced at $9.99.

If non-evil succubae were game devs, they would be part of CD Projekt, or GOG.com. There is something to be said about the site and how well it mashes up great games, no DRM and insanely awesome sales. They are leeches they suck away all the precious money I’ve collected over days and months and seduce me into buying their great games in one of the best designed websites around. Especially when they have periodic sales for no other reason than to just have sales floating about. The Spring Sale is one of them, and it has already bitten my PayPal balance!
There’s Beyond Good & Evil a game I’ve played over at least three times without getting bored, Evil Genius which I bought automatically when I saw its price, and Fallout which is pretty much the best SF RPG till date.
Apart from that, Divine Divinity, Disciples 2 (Gold Edition), Gothic II (Gold Edition), Heroes of Might & Magic 3 Complete, and Myst: Masterpiece Edition (which I bought too seeing that I had never played the game ever).
This sale will last for just a day more so go on ahead!
So go, shoo, and play those great games and tell us which ones you liked!
There is something to be said about this labor of love. Christopher Park founded Arcen Games and went on to make AI War: Fleet Command which is one of the most unique space-strategy games out there. It is a space-based 4X (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) strategy game which is mostly RTS (Real Time Strategy) with elements of a TBS (Turn Based Strategy). As a grand game that takes away the pressure of micromanagement from the players and focuses on the underlying strategy instead. So instead of working with each and every one of the 90,000 units that this game is reported to support at a single time, you will work like the admiral you are flanking, debilitating and using guerilla tactics against your enemy.
This entire week, the game will be up for sale on Steam for $9.99!
AI War: Fleet Command was a hit. So Arcen Games decided to push ahead with an expansion! AI Wars: The Zenith Remnant added a huge number of features to an already awesome game with Core ships, ancient alien artifacts and moody Dyson Spheres. Being a game full of consequences and no competitive multiplayer (you fight the AI and only the AI, hence the name) this massive expansion pack is also on sale on Steam for $4.99 this week!
If you are still not convinced, check this trailer from Gametrailers for AI War: Fleet Command!

For those who do not know anything about these games, I’d recommend Deus Ex, considering the fact that it is one of the greatest games of all time. Play it, soak in the story, and traverse a world full of gritty references, conspiracies and unmatched gameplay. I’d go as for to comment on the fact that many of today’s choice-based and storyline-focused FPSs have taken an idea from Deus Ex in one form or another. For its time, this game was unimaginably complex and full of rich characters and interactions. Its sequel, Deus Ex: Invisible War tried to continue the setting of the Deus Ex, but did not exceed its predecessor’s success. However, Invisible War has far more branching points than the previous game and has a non-linear gameplay that is still rich and fulfilling to play.
The tactical shooter Hitman: Codename 47 spawned a huge fan following and a movie to boot. Though the movie was nothing special, the series is. Playing as a contract killer, gamers are to murder a variety of people with realistic weapons and settings. With enough reality in it to make anyone know a little bit of the enigmatic world of assassins akin to those in the James Bond universe, the Hitman series is a great gift for those who like spy thrillers and conspiracies of secret organizations that send trained assassins to change the course of world history. Hitman: Silent Assassin and Hitman: Blood Money take the gameplay forward as you guide Codename 47 around the world in a variety of missions.
