Most PC fans out there are patiently (or impatiently) awaiting the start of the Steam Summer Sale. Although there are still a few weeks for that, those dying to spend some money might want to look toward GOG in the meantime. They have just begun the 2013 #noDRM Summer Sale. The hashtag #noDRM saw its birth on Twitter during the whole Xbox One affair and may have even contributed to Sony's stance on leaving used game control and internet requirements out of the picture. Either way, GOG only sells DRM-free video games so they deserve some credit for for their efforts. Steam, the biggest competitor, certainly doesn't do the same. What does this sale offer? Most of the games GOG sells are at least fifty percent off. That means there are over 500 games available at a discounted price right now and they will be until July 5th. Considering most games on GOG cost $5 or $10 normally, you're likely to get some good deals from their library. To celebrate the latest sale, Torchlight has also been marked as freely available for the first 48 hours of the sale. Unlike a Steam download the same game, GOG's includes the official soundtrack as well. In order to download the game you do need a GOG account.
Another month brings another indie bundle knocking at our door. Indie Gala has gone and titled their latest bundle the Indie Gala Colossus, but with pretty good reason. As it turns out, the bundle will grant all purchasers eleven games and two soundtracks. Strangely, the higher tier that adds more games will not actually give users access to them until the second week of the sale. Here are the lower tier games: 7.62MM (Windows) Darwinia (Windows/Mac/Linux, Steam) Subversion City (Windows) Talisman Prologue (Windows, Desura) Voxel Destruction (Windows) Paying more the current minimum ($5.55) unlocks the rest: Defcon (Windows/Mac/Linux, Steam) Demigod (Windows: Steam) Hearts of Iron III (Windows: Steam) Multiwinia (Windows/Mac, Steam) Uplink (Windows/Mac/Linux, Steam) One additional game is also included and hasn't been revealed yet, as well as two mystery albums. As usual, the longer you wait, the more expensive the bundle can become. On the other hand, it may be worth waiting to see what the extras are in case they are exciting to you. Whatever the case, the Colossus bundle is set to run for 15 days.
