(Arcanum) Major Bummer Averted By GoG


Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share my experience with all you kindred spirits. After all the reading I've been doing on these forums, I got an itch to replay Arcanum. I dug out the box and opened the cd case only to find one disk! Oh, the horror! But I went to GoG and the game is on sale for $2.39! Needless to say, I bought that sucker toot sweet!

Hm. GoG advertisement?

"This is what most people do not understand about Colbert and Silverman. They only mock fictional celebrities, celebrities who destroy their selfhood to unify with the wants of the people, celebrities who are transfixed by the evil hungers of the public. Feed us a Gomorrah built up of luminous dreams, we beg. Here it is, they say, and it looks like your steaming brains."

Possibly, but why not? And he/she wouldn't be GOG staff. They don't do that. It's a great site and a great place to get DRM-free games. I buy lots of games through them and cruise their forums a lot as well. I plan on redeeming my DRM-free digital copy of Project Eternity through them when the game is released.

I doubt it, but even if it was I doubt that anyone would care. GoG is a mighty awesome service and well-liked 'round these parts.

I actually never played Arcanum (played BG, PT, Fallout) Can't pass up a game for under $3 tho. SOLD

 

Why are you still on the forum? Go! Dernholm needs you!

Unobtrusively informing you about my new ebook (which you should feel free to read and shower with praise).

Too bad GOG doesn't offer a manual reprinting service. There's something to be said about having a tangible old school game manual.

I feel an urge...to replay it. Don't have time...but I may anyway.

 

Is it modded with hi-res, patched etc if you get it from GOG?

 

I believe you need to patch it, since the patches are unofficial.

No, although the GoG version does support these things (there's guides on their forums to help with this).

Alright, thanks. :) I got it, and tried it...to be honest, I didn't even reflect upon the subpar graphics...I was too stuck trying to determine what kind of character I want to play. The first time I played as a diplomatic dude with a skill in firearms, so I want to try something different now...perhaps a stone-dumb brute.
