Razer’s Cortex game sale tracking software has gone live after a two week early access period. In celebration of the announcement, eight games are being discounted on GOG.com for a month. The titles can be accessed from the Razer Cortex software, that users will have to download and register for a Razer account.
The eight games on sale are The Witcher 2, Hotline Miami, Reus, Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, Guana Sisters: Rise of the Owlverlord, Guacamelee, and Escape Goat. While none of these are particularly triple A type games (aside from the Witcher 2), they represent a wider appeal to gamers in general.
Now that Razer Cortex is available, we have been able to try it out and discover if it will operate like Steam. One thing to note is that the software will automatically detect the games that have been installed on a computer and add them to the library, although how it does this is a mystery. It may attempt to detect Steam games, but doesn’t add all of them. Perhaps there are still a few minor adjustments to be made.
The Deals tabs is the most interesting, providing a very complete listing of every game available on supported websites. It’s a bit overwhelming, although it really does list EVERY deal available; even for games that nobody has ever heard of. There is a catch to all this, as some of the listed deals are only available to US customers; a small drawback of listing games from Amazon.com as well.
Razer Cortex is still in its early days, and the Deals function is listed as being a beta version. Hopefully it will improve over time. The Cortex can be downloaded here.
