GOG has recently added two fighting games to its storefront with Mortal Kombat 4 and The friends of Ringo Ishikawa now being available for purchase on that platform.
Starting with the more popular of the two and Mortal Kombat 4 gives us that odd early 3D look of 1997. Despite its looks this game is remembered fondly by many and offers them an opportunity to play it once again, and newcomers to get their first taste.
Mortal Kombat 4 is now available on GOG for $5.99 (~R98).
Next up is The friends of Ringo Ishikawa a game that, while styled like an older title, is actually from 2018 and is the more obscure of the pair here.
“Basically, the game is an existential open world beat’em up with some school sim elements. It has a little of everything: a town to explore, day-night cycle, npc on their schedule, battle grinding, school grinding, mini-games (ping-pong, billiard, video-poker, video-game console with one game…) and so on,” the official description of the game on GOG reads.
Having not played the game at the time of writing the addition of it to new platforms is a great way to get us to dive in, especially considering the features of GOG such as its DRM free support and the new refund policy which allows titles to be refunded up to a month after purchase. Features like this make GOG able to compete against giants like Steam and the Epic Game Store, which offer things like regional pricing and lots of free games respectively.
Back to The friends of Ringo Ishikawa is now available on GOG for $14.99 (~R246), but is currently discounted by 50%. This seems to be a launch promotion so get the game sooner rather than later if you’d like to save some money. Well, “save” is a relative term here but you know what we mean.
