GOG kicked off its annual spring Insomnia sale today, offering deep discounts and some free games to boot. Games will be offered one at a time, but with a limited number of copies. Once that item runs out, the next goes up for sale. Planned games include Papers, Please, Divinity: Dragon Commander Imperial Edition, and Leisure Suit Larry: Love for Sail.

GOG.com has the ongoing sales. As one example, Alan Wake was recently offered for 80% off, and copies at that price ticked down at a rate of about 1-per-second. More heavily desired games are bound to go faster, and you never know what's on-tap next. GOG aims to make you lose sleep by sitting up watching the sales to make sure you don't miss one, a plan so fiendish that they must be some kind of retailer supervillains.

      "Spring" Sale? Oh right, it's May. I forgot it's now the middle of spring because it snowed a few days ago.

      I'll admit that's a neat gimmick, but who has the time to sit there watching the games go by one by one? Not me. I have other things I'd rather do.

      If I want one of these games I'll pick them up on a regular sale that doesn't require you to sit there glued to the screen.

        Yeah, this is the worst kind of bullshit an online distributor can pull. I just don't understand the psychology behind it. The only thing it's does is piss me off and make me buy games elsewhere.

          is that what's pissing you off or is it something else about you that sucks?
