Building a backlog
Go ahead, make your jokes. You know full well that no matter how deep your backlog is, you’re going to be checking out the Holiday sales on games of all kinds this month. Actually, what am I saying, you probably already did. Well, if you did, then let us add a little more fuel to the fire with news of GOG’s Winter Sale.
The online PC (and Mac) gaming storefront has had a massive roll of discounts up for a day or two now, but it’s still very much notable. That’s mainly due to the shocking amount of deals that are available.
