While Interplay now is but a twisted husk of the prominent publisher it was, it still has an impressive catalogue of revered games to its name. Good Old Games, the virtuous virtual vendor of vintage video games, is offering a splendid opportunity to explore these on the cheap, with a 50% discount on all Interplay titles in a 'Staycation' promotion.

A grand 32 titles are available for a mere $2.99 apiece in the sale, includingthe Descent, Earthworm Jim, Fallout, FreeSpace, and MDK series. You'll also find Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Shogo: Mobile Armor Division, Kingpin: Life of Crime, Redneck Rampage, and oh so many more. What a lovely spread of video games.

The Interplay sale will end at 11:59pm EDT on July 4, so you've got plenty of time to get your pennies together. This is only the first Staycation sale for GOG this summer, so keep your eyes on the ground for shiny coins as you walk.

        Messiah was actually pretty fun back when it came out. Unique as well.

        Sacrifice is probably one of my favourite SP games. It's relentlessly hard, but the battles and spells are just so epic. Spell Effects look gorgeous even today.

      I've been excited that these games have been available for a while and simply haven't gotten around to picking them up. Procrastination FTW!

      I've been eyeing Kingpin for awhile. Did Shackers enjoy this game in its heyday? I won't pass it up for 3 bucks, but I'd love to hear impressions.

        it really, really doesn't hold up as well as other quake II engine titles around the same era.

          Have to agree however for $2.99 it's not much of a risk.

        you know I actually still have my original disk and I only played it for about 10mins back then.
        All I remember was lots of usage of teh F work and how brown the levels were

        I had a lot of fun with it when it came out. The excessive profanity can get kinda annoying at times, but I really dug the RPG elements in the game.

      New Descent and Giants: Citizen Kabuto games would make me so happy.

        Agreed, also, I want a new Freespace game.

        Shogo has long deserved a new game. Now, even if it's just a remake.

        How has Giants held up over the years? Enough to keep up someone's interest that hasn't played it before?

      I bought Fallout 2 and Shogo because of this sale. Games I wouldn't have bought otherwise, particularly because I already own Shogo on disc. I just wanted a copy that I didn't need a disc for, and also because it looks so good next to Blood and Blood II.

      Couldn't resist, 4 of my favorite games purchased:
      - Earthworm Jim 1/2
      - Fallout 1 & 2
      - Giants: Citizen Kabuto

      Now if we can convince GoG to put Thief 1 on their site...

      Heh, I found my old boxes for Freespace and Freespace 2 the other day... ended up binning the box for FS1 though, was a bit mangled and water damaged. I miss the enormous boxes sometimes... but only sometimes.

      For games this old, I'd pay $2.99 for the whole bundle, but certainly not EACH..

        June 20, 2011 3:52 PM

        I meant to say, $2.99 for *A* bundle.. like say a bundle of 5 games..

          No worries, there are plenty of people who aren't so stingy who will be able to enjoy these games for the first time or relive old cherished memories.

        Freespace 2 is worth several times that much. That's not nostalgia talking, it really is that good.

        • reply
          June 21, 2011 12:19 PM

          Especially when you combine it with the Source Code Project updates that are still going - Freespace 2 doesn't just look good, it looks as good as any modern-day game.

      M.A.X. is a classic..great music, great gameplay, they really should develop a sequel to that and not Max 2

      Giants Citizen Kabuto. Not without its flaws, but such a memorable game. I was playing it around the same time as Alice and had almost as much fun with it. $2.99 is a steal.

      Did anyone play the Descent Doom3 mod, Into Cerberon? I downloaded it and it seemed fun, but it's mp only.

      I have the FreeSpace boxes under my bed, but I'll buy these anyway. They should work fine with the open source launcher doodad right?

      • reply
        June 21, 2011 12:20 PM

        Yes, that's correct - shouldn't be any problem applying the Source Code Project open source updates. Don't forget to get the Media VPs too for the updated high-def models, special effects and such.
