Today sees the GoG.com summer sale kicking off with new deals added twice a day, various bundles at reduced pricing and the ability to unlock free games with purchases made.
Some of my included highlights of day one of the GoG.com sale include (but are not limited to):
I'm always quite OCD about my gaming collection and prefer to opt for a more tidy DRM with easy accessibility to my games which is why the introduction of GoG Galaxy has proved a massive hit as far as I am concerned for cataloguing all my classic GoG purchases in one handy place.
The Weekly Staff Picks over at GoG.com this week bring us savings of up to 85% on the Witcher franchise.
These deals will last for the next 5 days so make sure to head over to GoG.com to pick up these great titles from The Witcher franchise ahead of The Witcher 3's May 19th release.
With The Witcher 3 just around the corner (19th May) now may just be the perfect time to catch up on the first two installments.
Matt gave The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition a perfect 10/10 when he reviewed it back in 2012 and stated:
"With the Enhanced Edition, CD Projekt RED have rewritten the book on how to develop the perfect port.Click here to read more...
We love you CD Projekt. We really do. And it's not just about the Witcher series, which is utterly fantastic, but also that DRM-free slice of digital distribution awesomeness called GOG.com.
When both come together in a money-saving initiative of wondrous brilliance, it's hard not to swoon.
GOG have launched a new discount series, kicking off with a bunch of my personal favourite games, including Heroes of Might and Magic 2 and 3, and both Witcher titles. Seriously, The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition for just over £2? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!
You can nab them here for up to 80% off, and while you're there, be sure to vote on what you'd like to see discounted in tomorrow's deal.
If you missed Direct2Drive’s similar offer last month, then you’re in luck as it’s GoG.com’s turn. The deal puts this offer over £6.50 cheaper than the next best offer at TheHut, making it not only a budget buy but a hell of a saving to boot. The Witcher is definitely a hark back to when RPGs were of a less friendly nature to players in terms of interaction, but for those willing to put in the effort to learn the controls it’s a deep and entertaining fantasy adventure. As the title suggests, this version comes along with improved visuals and additional content to what was already quite a huge game, so just over £3 you’re getting more than your money’s worth. Thanks to Yorlasty @ HUKD for the heads-up!
The Witcher’s enhanced edition is widely considered to be vastly superior to the original. The rewritten script and extra missions improve the storyline beyond all recognition, with better graphics and loads of extra content rounding out a delectable and quirky RPG that doesn’t play by the rules. Oh, and you'll also get a bunch of neat downloadable extras including the OST and an ever-helpful map.
Steam's price is by far and away the cheapest method of netting this excellent little title.

The rewritten script and extra missions improve the storyline beyond all recognition, with better graphics and loads of extra content rounding out a delectable and quirky RPG that doesn't play by the rules. It also includes soundtrack CDs, the official game guide, a short story and a few more goodies in the specially-designed packaging. Not a bad price for a great game with tons of extras- though beware the occasional bug that will likely scurry out of the woodwork from time to time!
