If you're stumped for something to play this weekend, you might find some inspiration in this enormous
weekend sale at GOG.com
, which has lined up 26 of EA's goodest oldest games and shot 60% off their asking prices with the discount gun. $62.14 will get you all the Ultimas, Wing Commanders, Populi (Populouses?) and Dungeon Keepers, plus loads more, or you can buy each game individually for $2.39, which should be about £1.49 in old money.
With Chris Roberts back in the limelight courtesy of Star Citizen, now might be a good time to revisit (or finally play) his Wing Commander titles, and see Mark Hamill in his
famous sci-fi role. (Professional bad guy, and former actor, Malcom McDowell also stars, as Space Marshal Sir Geoffrey Tolwyn.) Of course, it's
a good time to play Ultima Underworld, the dungeon crawling spin-off of the Ultima series - that is, if you can get used to the archaic controls. You'll have your own highlights from
this bountiful collection
, but if you're tempted you might want to get a wriggle on - the sale ends in two-and-a-half days.
