Purchasing games without any DRM protection and having the ability to play them wherever and whenever you want is a great feature of GOG (opens in new tab). Things get even better when there's a sale on and the platform is currently rolling out the Summer 2017 PC game sale. What makes this promotion that little bit sweeter is the free copy of Rebel Galaxy that's handed out to everyone on their first purchase during the sale.
So just how many games are we talking about here? More than 1500 in total. Titles include:
- Civilization IV (opens in new tab) (75% off)

Civ IV is definitely enticing me.
Ooh, I should check if KoToR II is cheap, I never played that one.
I loved the SWAT series of games (as well as the classic Rainbow Six games), think I will pick these up as they should play on Surface Pro 3 just fine if I ever get the urge. Loved the beanbag shotgun in SWAT.
Just picked up the Fallout series and Oblivion on GOG so I can play them on my SP4. Not sure I am ready for a summer sale yet. Got 12 games through GOG connect though so that was nice. :)
