Posted by | News, PC | No Comments

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – time for lots of sales on digital video games! DRM-free store GOG launched their annual Winter Sale this week, currently featuring over 1900 games on sale. The GOG Winter Sale ends January 3, 2019.

You can earn bonus free games by spending money during the sale. If you’re quick you can grab a free game right now without spending a dime, simply by stopping by the store. Full Throttle Remastered is available for free – but only for the next 24 hours. Full Throttle is a classic 90s era LucasArts adventure game, recently remastered by Double Fine Productions.

If you spend any amount of money during the sale you can earn 1996 strategy game Fantasy General for free. Spending at least $15 grants Everspace, a much more recent spaceship sim from 2016.

If you need help browsing the huge selection, GOG offers several curated lists, including by genre and publication recommendations. The Best of 2018 is a good place to start for excellent indie games, including Battletech (30% off), Dead Cells (20% off), Frostpunk (33% off) and Into the Breach (33% off).

The GOG Winter Sale also features Daily Deals. Every 24 hours new games will rotate into these deals, bringing much steeper discounts, usually 70-85% off. Chances are you won’t find a better discount any time soon.

Finally, several new games have been added to GOG Connect. GOG Connect lets you import you Steam games into your GOG library so you can play them DRM-free, completely outside of Steam. The newly added games include Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, Age of Wonders 3, and the Shadowrun trilogy.

The GOG Winter Sale ends January 3, 2019.

Arena Shooter Sky Noon Swings Out of Early Access

Posted by | News, PC, Video | No Comments

Sky Noon is a first-person shooter that eschews typical shooter violence in favor of knocking players off of the floating cloud arena in this alternate Western world. After several months in Early Access it’s moving to an official 1.0 launch on December 18.

In Sky Noon, players don’t have health bars. In order for players to eliminate each other, they need to blast them off of the arena, not unlike Super Smash Bros. The gunslingers are equipped with air-powered weaponry and gadgets , including steam-powered jet boots, lassos, and grappling hooks to help maneuver around the floating arena. It’s an interesting way to turn a first-person shooter into a more non-violent format while still using guns.

The new 1.0 update adds a new Ice Spires duel map, new unlockable weapons, and an all new free-for-all game mode. The new game mode is called Money Bags. Players are tasked with collecting and stealing coins by quickly traversing around the map and eliminating the competition.

Sky Noon is developed by New Zealand-based indie developer Lunar Rooster and is currently available via Steam Early Access. Online multiplayer supports up to 6 players. The official 1.0 launch will update on December 18.
