Don We Now Our Shiny Stat-Boosting Armor
What makes an RPG? Like many gaming genres, it depends on who you ask, but personally, we think a focus on adventure, stats, grinding EXP, and leveling up has something to do with it. RPGs have been known to show all kinds of plot, characterization, themes, and aesthetics, but the core mechanics–and the feeling of freedom when you start wandering around the world–are what hold it all together. Also, the loot. Can’t forget the loot. As you might have guessed, we like a good RPG from time to time. If you do, too, now is the time to head over to GOG.com, because The Grand RPG Sale is setting off on an equally grand adventure. You won’t want to miss these discounts. No, really, you can pick up Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura for $1.99 CDN. It’s magical.
