The incredible Adventures of Van Helsing I and II 

 

Yes or No?

 

Haven't played any quality Diablo clone for ages, and right now it's on sale...  The setting for me is really appealing, but Path of Exile and Torchlight was kind of boring to me :( Haven't played and not planning to play Diablo III, because of the online only ridiculousness...

 

GOG also confirmed that Final Cut will be for free for all owners of all three games >link<, so getting it now for me is really really tempting...

Ok, purchased, we'll see how I will like the game O.o

 

At least now I have someone to blame, if I will not like it :p

 

It will take some time, before I download 10GB of data :(

Had I been here in time, I would have recommended Grim Dawn.

Great game, even if still unfinished.  Granted, the last time I played it was nearly a year ago.  I made the decision then that I didn't want to get burnt out on the game before it actually fully released, hence I won't touch it again until then.

^Yeah kind of my feeling too.  I've toyed with it, but don't want to invest heavily until it is done.

The other day I had to buy NWN2 from GoG because it no longer installs to Windows 8.1 from media. *sigh* This will be the fourth time I've bought the game; I mainly load it for the toolset and the ability to play custom modules.

I was always surprised that there was not a bigger outcry when IGN shut down the Neverwinter Vault and so many content packs and modules were lost, sure thanks to the good works of an independent curator many of the high profile works were saved but still it just shows how low curation is on the corporate scale. It's all about that next big sale, never about a catalogue of work and a history.


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.

No none whatsoever, which is why so much was lost apparently, truly a waste.

 

Edit: That said the new Vault is doing sterling work and implementing most of the old content, which is a Herculean task in and of itself.

System Shock: Enhanced Edition now comes with official support for resolutions up to 1024x768 (compared to the original 640x480), and a native 854x480 widescreen mode. Gameplay is streamlined with a toggleable mouselook mode, including more intuitive inventory and item management. Combined with assorted bug-fixes and remappable controls, System Shock is now truly enhanced. Still, some gaming experiences are truly worth preserving, so you can also return to the authentic 90's gameplay with System Shock: Classic - ready for modern systems, completely unaltered in all other aspects.

And it actually looks like a potentially worthwhile purchase even if you own the CD version/ System Shock Portable since it isn't just base game + SS2Tool as the System Shock 2 release was but has improvements like persistent settings and a windows executable.

 

Night Dive actually owns the System Shock IP now so there might even be sequels- potentially pretty cool if they can find the right devs. The SS2 re-release has sold well over 1.5 million copies (and more on GOG than Steam, despite the bundles it has been in being steam keys) so they've got a decent base to aim at even if a lot of those sales have been at a lower price point than even the $10 base.

Neat. I'll probably only get it for the manuals and technical references though.

I always wanted to own Falcon 4.0 only for a massive manual the game shipped with. :D

Mixed feelings here. I no longer have a flight stick (let's face it, in the past 15 years that's been nothing more than useless clutter on the desk) and I no longer have the spare time necessary to really enjoy Falcon like I did back in my school days. Although 4.0 probably stopped being the buggy piece of crap it was for  years after its release and my current rig should have absolutely no issues with Falcon 3.0, unlike my trusty old 386 had back in the day. :)

Looks like GOG is getting my money... again. ;)

 

edit:

 

Speaking of giving money to GOG, they also have a pre-order going on for a HD remake of Pathologic, featuring an all new English translation. That looks promising, to say the least. The original english version had the charm of a badly translated Chinese manual.
