This weekend's Good Old Games promotion, 25% off a handful of action titles, is right up my alley. The image above conveys which games are on sale and does my job for me, but I'm not about to go down without a solid fight.

To get the full 25% off, add any of the following games to your cart and apply promo code "ACTION" during checkout: Die by the Sword + Expansion, Earthworm Jim 1 & 2, Earthworm Jim 3D, MDK, MDK 2, Messiah, and Shattered Steel. You have until Monday, March 23 at 11:59 PM EDT to take part.

Now, I don't know how many of you have ever played Earthworm Jim 3D before, but I have, and the boss battles in it frustrated me to absurd levels of anger. Essentially, the game forces you to collect a bunch of marbles while an enemy character tries to gather more than you. While it sounds easy in theory, the controls are complete sh*t. It's quite honestly the opposite of fun.

While I highly recommend you guys don't buy that game, I have no problems with any of the other titles. Have at it!

[Thanks, John B]
