Steam and Good Ol’ Games Summer Sale 2021

It’s that time of year again, the two biggest online platforms are having their annual massive Summer sales. The main differentiator as always is the Good Ol Games is DRM free, so this mean you can download and installer and if GoG disappears tomorrow you have all your games fully playable… so make sure to keep them backed up! That is why when I am looking for a digital game I always check Good Ol Games first and if it is not available I will purchase it on Steam. Full disclosure if Steam is having a sale so it is significantly less expensive on Steam i will purchase it there and then on GoG as well when it goes on sale. The conundrum of digital gaming, lol! The way Steam shows you items on sale is via a curated catalog, no list which I would prefer. GoG just gives you a list you scroll through, which is I think is easier and better. Alright, with that out of the way, lets take a peak at what’s on offer.

All I can say is what a time to be alive. I would have never thought that in 2021 I would have the opportunity to open new or reproduced, factory fresh games for my favorite 16 bit and 8 bit consoles. I hope the community continues to show support so that companies will continue to be motivated to produce the games that still bring us joy today. I did not have a Genesis growing up…

What is up RGL family! This much is very thin but there is a NES release so worth its own article even if I cannot find anything else.

Welcome to the August 2021 retro games update, happy to announce some new physical releases for our favorite counsels.
