So it seems the sale is ending in ~40h and they have brought all the deals back. Is his standard practice?

 

Funny thing, no Star Wars games have been on sale either on GOG or Steam. I wonder what's up with that.

The Star Wars Franchise was on a big sale a month or two ago.

Of course. When they added the JK games, right? I completely forgot about that. Still, kinda iffy that there is absolutely no discount on any SW games (well, except Pinball) on Steam either.

Huh. They added Starfleet Command Gold at some point. Not on sale though. This is good news for me because it probably means SFC2/Orion Pirates will be added soon as well. :w00t:

Now that's what I call a return to form, i'd been waiting for the return of some good old games, hopefully Dark Omen and the Dawn of War series will follow.


Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

I'm dreading the day DoW makes it to GoG; I'll have to buy it again ~for the fourth time.

 

Anytime something pops up for sale DRM free, that duplicates an entry in my limited Steam library, I buy it, and one more Steam game gets discarded. Eventually, I will just have Fallout:New Vegas via Steam, and when I can find that DRM free (not that I expect it), I can uninstall Steam.

last time they had a sale i got Nox. its not a bad game but it releashed together with diablo 2 at the time so it passed un-noticed. still it has it's share of flaws and some of them grave.

the forced transition between chapters (each chapter is in a different location and you dont get to choose when to move, so often you may fail quests because the game has thrown you to the next chapter before you could turn them in)

the "one way" level design that does not let you go back to town for resuply, usually followed by the chapter transition (a merchant has a really nice item you want but cant afford it. you go in the dungeon to loot some stuff and sell them, but you cant come back out until you run through it all and at the end you move to the next location so you cant get the item)

the complete imbalance of the classes with the warrior getting the shortest possible straw (due in no small part to the 2 problems above) since he needs constant gear upgrading and repair and has no way to make the money needed (while the wizard can go around naked for all you care and spend no money at all for anything AND have an easier time in combat)


The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

I have the original NOX CDs, and the GoG version. The only problem I have with the game, is that no one cares about anything in their house or establishment. The PC can enter any location and smash everything to bits and soak the floor... No one notices. sad.png

Otherwise it's a great game that pulls off a great trick with MMX, for the realtime line-of-sight fog of war.

 

Westwood released several patches and special addons for Nox. I'm not sure if the GoG version has or supports any of them though.

 Great games, very brutal and unforgiving. Especially the first one where you really learn the importance of saving ammunition

2033 Redux. Will get the second one if I like the first one, hopefully get around to playing it this weekend.

Yes, I heard about the importance of saving ammunition - fits the story and my way of playing games :)
