GOG.com RPG weekend
Online game delivery service, GOG, is holding a “pricing experiment” that will see if lower prices will bring in more gamers.
Games like Alien Shooter, Commandos Ammo Pack, Empire Earth, and Rollercoaster Tycoon have been cut from $5.99 to $3.99.
More expensive games, such as Shadowgrounds, Sherlock Holmes, and Broken Sword 4: The Angel of Death have been reduced from $9.99 to $6.99.
If the sale goes well, GOG will be introducing some more games to the special list.
