Low Budget Gamer: Unbelievably Ubi at GOG


To celebrate a weekend of gaming, GOG.com has tossed up their Unbelievably Ubi  sale. Celebrating a rather popular publisher, GOG is offering 60% off on select Ubisoft classics until Tuesday, May 6th, at 3:59am GMT.

GOG is no stranger to a good sale, and their offer this weekend is tantalizing. If you missed out on classic Ubisoft titles, or wanted to pick up an old favorite like Beyond Good and Evil for a steal, you better head right on over and start buying to your heart’s content. Boasting over 40 titles at 60% off, GOG has offered quite a variety to satisfy any PC player.

Some of the notable titles include:

  • Rayman Forever – $5.99 $2.39

The full list can be found here, so what are you waiting for? I feel like my wallet’s about to get fairly slim with so many classics to be found on GOG. If this is your first time shopping on GOG.com, don’t worry, Beltravi’ll hold your hand. GOG is a simple PC gaming site that is chock full of classics. While they don’t have a great deal of new release content, they do have a nice library full of games that have been adapted for PC and Mac.

One of the things I like about GOG- and this is going to be real ’90’s of me, so brace yourself- is there’s no restriction on what you do with the game. You receive the game as a simple .exe file, and once you have it, it’s yours. You can send it to as many computers as you want, you can burn it onto a CD – they’re DRM-free for this purpose – to sit on your shelf gathering dust with the other relics, you can even re-download it as many times as you need to. You’ll have to make an account, but the plus is that any game you purchase is saved within your purchase history.

Naturally they ask that you don’t share the game with others, but once you download the game, it’s all yours to do with whatever you please. No launcher is needed to play them, the games are able to independently launch on their own. (For games that are a bit larger, you know, in the gigabyte field, they do offer a Downloader app that can help smooth the download and stop you from accidentally closing your browser while it’s downloading.)

What games are appealing to your nostalgia?
