Outcast returns with an enhanced release on Steam and GOG.com

Earlier this year, Fresh3D tried and failed to fund a high-definition remake of the 1999 action-adventure title Outcast on Kickstarter. Fans showed their support, but there simply weren't enough of them. The company is back w...

Brutal turn-based survival game NEO Scavenger out now

I kept seeing NEO Scavenger pop up Twitter yesterday, and now I know why: it's just come out of early access and is now available on Steam and GOG.com for $14.99 (Windows/Mac/Linux). This is a turn-based survival game, and an...

I never played Strife, but the remaster looks cool

Night Dive Studios brings old games to Steam, from The 7th Guest to System Shock 2 to Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon. I've heard of most of them, having either been around when they were new or discovering them in the years sinc...

GOG.com is giving away Mount & Blade and The Witcher 2 photo
GOG.com is giving away Mount & Blade and The Witcher 2
by Jordan Devore

GOG.com is now running its Big Fall Sale and beyond discounts on the classics and indie games, there are a few freebies to claim. For Mount & Blade, a medieval sandbox title with tons of mods, head to the site's front page in the next 48 hours and scroll down to the giveaway banner. Done.

The process for scoring a free copy of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (and some film called The Gamers: Director's Cut) is slightly more involved. You'll have to return to GOG.com daily to collect seven stamps (i.e., click on a box on the front page). Painless, but easy to forget.

I'll be pleasantly surprised if the just-added Star Wars: X-Wing or TIE Fighter go on sale.

[Thanks, jayjayjojo]

Star Wars: X-Wing, TIE Fighter, and other LucasArts classics are joining GOG.com

Digital distributor GOG.com will expand its library with games from a mysterious publisher tomorrow -- perhaps you've seen the countdown? Users recently dug up familiar-looking fonts suggesting it's none other than LucasArts ...

I'm happy a game like Shelter 2 can exist

Badgers were cute in Shelter, but I prefer the lynxes of Shelter 2 -- still adorable and higher up on the food chain. This is a survival game in which you begin as a pregnant lynx, a first for the medium, I'm sure. You'll ma...

Hah, remember Gex? It's back on GOG.com

Couple of things about Gex. First and foremost, the PC version of the original is now available on GOG.com. It's priced at $5.99 and should be quite the nostalgia trip for some of you. That's the main reason I'm writing this ...

GOG.com is giving away Aliens vs. Predator 2000
by Jordan Devore

For 48 hours, GOG.com is giving out free copies of Aliens versus Predator Classic 2000 to people who register their email address for the GOG Galaxy beta test. Easy enough.

But what is Galaxy, exactly? It's an upcoming DRM-free online gaming platform, as previously described here. Think of Steam as imagined by the GOG.com folks, essentially.

For the beta, "You'll be helping us to analyze and improve the performance of the multiplayer component of GOG Galaxy," hence the free game with multiplayer. Note that keys will be sent in batches so there will almost certainly be some waiting required on your part.

AVP 2000 looks dated but it's possible to get past that after a while. The last time I played -- three or four years back, I think -- it held up fairly well. Still fun after all these years.

You've got 4 days to buy 35 games from GOG.com before they're gone

One of the assumptions of buying games digitally is that you assume they'll always be available. That's sadly not the case, but GOG.com is offering discounts on 35 games that it will be removing from its catalog on Septe...

A Fistful of Gun is a chaotic, top-down, Western shooter

I appreciate how a publisher like Devolver Digital can put out games as different as Hotline Miami 2 and Hatoful Boyfriend within a few months, as well as this neat top-down shooter A Fistful of Gun. The game looks like ...

Gods Will Be Watching dials back the torture for a launch trailer

Launching a videogame is usually cause for celebration. However, this Gods Will Be Watching launch trailer is bleak enough that you won't want to celebrate anything, not even the game's impending July 24 release. At lea...

This Gods Will Be Watching trailer made me wince

I'll go out on a limb here and suggest that we're not going to feel good about ourselves after playing Deconstructeam's point-and-click thriller Gods Will Be Watching. The game is out July 24 for Windows, Mac, and Linux on S...
