Good Old Games is hosting their usual weekend promo, but this one may be a bit more enticing to mainstream gamers. The sale includes six Ubisoft titles, including the all-time classic Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and the game that put Crytek on the map, Far Cry. With the entire set under $30, it almost seems worth it to just grab them all.
You can view the full list of sale games at their website, GoG.com. The only bad one in there is Driver: Parallel Lines. I’m not sure who thinks that’s a classic. My guess would be Ubisoft.
Beyond the sale, they’ve also added two new games to the GoG catalog this week. First up is Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive, a game I’d never heard of until now, but for an older title it looks beautiful. GoG describes it as Commandos meets the wild west–which sounds pretty great.
An even bigger deal is the release of Star Control 1+2. Considered to be one of the best games of all time, Star Control might look a little rough by today’s standards, but it’s still something everyone should try.
This could be the weekend I finally try out the original Far Cry. How about you?
