Goodbye GOG.com

Recommended Posts

Is there an expiration date on the vouchers one got with the TW2 pre-order? Thinking of buying Septerra Core. Also, opinions on the game?

Loved it back in the day. It's basically a JRPG made by a western team, the magic system is pretty cool, the combat will get tedious, the world is cool, the story not bad(by JRPG standards).

Watched Your intro link. Watched some gameplay videos.

 

Might have to use one of those vouchers.

despite not ever finishing it, i do in fact recommend a gander, its a really cool game, just not terribly fun after a few dungeons and the repetition sets in.

Killing is kind of like playin' a basketball game. I am there. and the other player is there. and it's just the two of us. and I put the other player's body in my van. and I am the winner. - Nice Pete.

You can read/watch the ending online...

 

Protip for future Septerra players: use healing items to kill undead and save tons of time.

Ah goodie they have Slipstream 5000. Heh, first CD-ROM game I had, and I didn't even have a CD-ROM drive. So the jewel case sat there, taunting me.

And don't use Black Hole on them.

Wonder what else is coming. Syndicate ? Anyway, will probably get both of those.

What would be really awesome is Wing Commander 4 DVD - it was only ever released as part of the Creative DVD bundle although there are ways to patch your CD copy to use downloaded DVD FMV. Prophecy DVD would be nice too of course.

Hmm, tempted to get myself Dungeon Keeper, but which one is better the 1st one or the sequel?

The first, by far.

I would agree... But I would also say get them both. They are the same basic game, but have subtle, and not so subtle differences. My favorite is the first one; and I'm kind of surprised [and impressed] that they sell it with the original ending.

The second one feels much more clunky and somewhat disorganized.

 

That, though, may be, because I never got the CD version working as it always crashed at the main menu, so I haven't really gotten fully into it yet.

I'm hoping for Populous : The Begining; Preferably with some of the user patch options; though I doubt it.

 

There was Hi-res, and bump-mapping added in one patch; and internet play... but at the cost of LAN play. :(

This is true and also odd, because the second one has so much less buttons, creatures, rooms, etc. You can see design philosophies behind everything, everything has a purpose, and yet it somehow seems less cohesive.

Wing Commander III

 

Heh, I remember finally getting the Kilrathi saga from a library of all places.

Glorious day! All D&D titles are up to 60% off. They're using a variable pricing structure, it starts at 20% off, then every game you add to your cart, get an additional 5% off.

It would have only saved me $5 to take 4 games off, so I got them all.

I was this close to buying both BGs, both Icewind Dales, and Planescape on monday. Dodged that bullet.

So, anyone wants to gamble on 6 millionth download to get everything in their catalogue? :D

I'll queue up everything I haven't already downloaded tonight.

 

The consolation prize is something I already own, though. :(

Hm, might as well get them, even if I'll never play them.
