If anyone has a Stalker serial number from their CD version, GoG will accept that as proof of purchase, and add Stalker to their account.
(This is honored for a very limited selection of other games as well.)

What about if I extract the CD-key from my Steam version of Stalker? :p

Most likely uses a different database.

Steam keys have actually worked in some cases, but they aren't supposed to.

Really like the gog Twitch feed from KOTOR2 (with TSLRCM) each weekend. I may of course be slightly biased.

Haven't bought anything there for ages though.

An interesting Diablo clone from Eidos released today: Revenant. The plot and setting are the standard poorly made cliches, the world however is bright, colourful and extremely vibrant and if one sticks with the combat it is revealed to be a thing of beauty, with a host of finishers for each type of monster, grappling and throws and a number of very powerful spells to take advantage of.

 

The protagonist Locke is a unique individual who is fully voice acted, at first far too dramatically, but this soon settles down into a far more even cadence. Well as even as it can be considering his nature.

 

A quick demonstration from the animators website of his work on the game:

 

 

Edit: Oh and it must be added that the cinematics are absoultely stunning. Alltogether it is a flawed gem, with far too much grinding and clearly rushed development, what if is the question that looms large here.

Apologies for the double post.

 

Forgotten Realms fans may wish to visit GOG in the near future however, I predict a golden reward if one searches thoroughly.

You mean this, right?

 

As much as I loved the gold box games when I was a young'un, I am afraid to revisit them.  I'm scared that the 2015 version of Keyrock, bereft of hair and rotund of belly, made cynical by exposure to the real world, would destroy the romantic images I have of these games.  I'll keep my rose tinted glasses on and leave the memories in the past.

Fan-$#^%-tastic news!

(Though... I already have all of them in that kit on CD.)

I wonder.... The original release accidentally (I assume) included the C source code for the Tigre engine, used to make Blood & Magic.
(But that was in the Blood & Magic demo folder on the disc... That won't be among the games.)

That's the one Keyrock and Majestic. Also if I may be so bold, the All Seeing Eye mod for EotB is a very nice automapping tool which some may think the game needs, I wouldn't take advantage of too many of its features however, just in case one spoils oneself.

For myself... I've got all the maps burned into the brain; even stuff that wasn't in the clue book. original.gif

*It'd be nice if this sparked a wave of popular retro-clones... Give some competition to Jeff Vogel for once.

I'm wondering whether EotB 1 will have the ending implemented.

 

@Gfted1: I really don't think these would be up your alley old man.

This ending?

I was wondering the same thing; and trying to post it on the GoG forums.

The third pack is a bit weird. Menzobarranzan and Dungeon Hack? Does make me wonder if they were going to have Stone Prophet at least included as well.

You know... Each of those Gold Box games originally sold for about $50.

Spoiler

That means that even Hillsfar cost quite a bit more than Skyrim did when it released.  :devil:
