If your life lacks a variety of classic, PC-based pinball then Good Old Games is where you should be pointing your Internet browser. GOG.com has added a collection of games in one set dubbed the Pinball Gold Pack for $9.99.

If the five included games--Pinball Dreams, Pinball Dreams 2, Pinball Fantasies, Pinball Mania, and Pinball Illusions--aren't immediately recognizable, you may be able to take some solace in the fact that they were developed by Digital Illusions (also known as DICE) of Battlefield and Mirror's Edge fame.

Those scallywags at GOG.com are also offering big savings on Tim Schafer's cult hit Psychonauts. From now through Thursday at 10am ET, the mind-bending adventure is available for 75% off. We're tired of telling you this is a game you should own, so do yourself a favor and throw down the $2.49 for it. We recommend using your mind's eye to search for the change. Or check between your couch cushions.

    To not own Psychonauts is to fail at life.

      I bought it in a Steam sale about 2 years ago and still haven't touched it.

        Its pretty cool. Very charming, if not slightly childish. It get really wacky in certain parts which gives it points. The gameplay, however, isn't really anything special.

          Is it better experienced with a gamepad? I did play the demo years ago, thought it was fun enough. I just play Minecraft now. :[

            I played with mouse and keyboard. The control was fine, I thought.

              Same here. I can see how it might be a little better with a gamepad but it was pretty good with kb+mouse

      What if you own it but you haven't actually played it?

      Played it. Got really bored with it. I can see where it'd be appealing to a certain age group.

        It's a strange game. At first glance it seems like a childish platformer, but it's actually a fairly dark adult world.

        I'm playing it right now, and whilst it hasn't grabbed me, I haven't given up on it. It's an amusing diversion but not the life changing game I was promised.

      That GoG.com deal was too sweet to pass up. I might never touch it again but it's nice to have on PC as well as Xbox now, and all without DRM!
