I hope everyone noticed, that GOG is running Winter Sale right now, but that is more interestign is that Desura second day in row having frontpage sale with significant discount.
Yesterday it was Puxeljunk games (both, sold separate), today is two games from Wolfgame: Miniflake(i was going to get it, but noticed, that after almost 1.5 Years of development its just ALpha 11, its like one update in 3-4 months) and SilverQuest Son of Kentar Edition. I have feeling we will see more tomorrow.
P.S. Looks like Linden guys really pushing Desura hard. And thats is not bad to see.

The daily coupon and the free 3-pack on the first day were nice to start @ GoG again ;)

Don't think Desura's is a specific event actually. The sale on front page has been a thing
for some time now. Got my Steam Marines with one of those 'daily features' when they
had just launched it on Steam. Think that was in the week they properly started that all.

Yes, they had several deals like that on Desura before, but they was all just one game and as far as i recall, not in row. Maybe i wrong, but i dont think its accidental.
As for GOG - yeah, they sure generous. And for coupon...still not found anything i was wanting. Hope for Valdis Abyssal city.

Either way is good for our poor aching wallets trying to cope
with our addictions :P

There's so many good games (on GoG)..

Mind you, by the way, I'm told that Race the Sun (2.50 now)
comes with a Steam and Linux version when you register @ the
site (which you need to do for MP)

Gotta love GoG.. No more guessing; all specials are revealed and more bundles up ^^

Night of the Rabbit is tempting but the Deluxe is Steam-only and was on sale for like 10-12 USD last time :s

Valdis for 7.50.. Good thing Aarklash is 'over 10' to be out of budget I normally spend on a game :oops:

King of Dragon Pass is quite good though they sold it for half this a while back..

No, Valdis for 7.50 is not special deal, its just 50% off sale for all games. I just hope to see Valdis even cheaper.

Yea, value is quite relative. I must admit that I bought one game on 50%
recently, but generally it's bad value nowadays if it's not 75% off.
Would be nice to see the actually good gamess get some more exposure
even if it's in 50% off sales though, will help them compensate for the 75%
at increased amounts :P

Desura popped the Gamebook Adventure books on sale, they're decent imo
but with better and longer games out there it's hard to justify the inflated
Desura prices in Euros for me even at this discount % :*(

You can rotate the three to new ones as long as you haven't picked any ;)
The ol' clear cache and re-enter to site works 8-)

Linden Labs is daily now, was expecting it to be day 1 to be fair.
Pleasantly surprised they aren't becoming a Linden store front as such :P

Patterns is still intriguing but I dislike Minecraft so not sure.. Patterns looks
lightyears better though that's my major gripe w Minecraft..

Actually GOG forum have thread about all daily deals yet seen - https://secure.gog.com/forum/general/da ... sale/page1
None of them catches my interest, unfortunately.
Now, Desura look like run out of offers...is it Christmas already? (not it Russia)...Well, i seen a lot of nice games on their frontpage, but none that interest me.
