Unleash Your Inner Child During Classic Games Week!
Monday, November 07, 2011
We know it's a big week, with Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim looking to make your head hurt with their pretty graphics, but it's also time to sit back, relax and reeducate (or just educate) yourself on where all these big games game from. It's Classic Games Week! Half off deals from Atari, Interplay and more!
Apogee, also known as 3D Realms kept your CD drives busy for years with shareware and paid-for titles from the history Duke Nukem franchise. A company that extolls the '90s virtues of manliness like only they (and perhaps an Adam Sandler movie) can, we've got their back catelog 50 to 60% off this week during Classic Games Week! Don't let the history and development cycle of Duke Nukem Forever scare you, Apogee has one of the strongest, most fun, out-there back catalogs around!
You can find Apogee's Games here.
Does Atari need an introduction? The company founded by Nolan Bushnell and responsible for bringing the arcade home (and making the arcade cooler) since 1972! Their entire back catalog is 50% off this week, which means the deals you can get on classics like Total Annihilation, the '80s Classic arcade titles, Icewind Dale, the Master of Orion collection and more! If you missed these games the first time around, you need to give yourself an education. Or educate your kids.
You can find Atari's Collection here.
For a generation of gamers, the Interplay cursive meant quality. The original creators of serious titles like Fallout also tried their hans at crazier titles like Earthworm Jim and Tommy Tronic. Freespace, MDK and Castles all had millions of man hours sunk into them and now it's time for you to sink more into them. Founded in 1983, Interplay is best known for its successful titles in the Role-Playing Game genre with hits like Fallout 1 & 2, Planescape: Torment and the Baldur's Gate series.
Interplay's titles can all be found here.
The Classic Games week runs from Monday November 7 through Monday November 14. Have at it! No quarters required!
