Decisions, decision...
If you don't have time, it's not worth it. I wasted my money buying 6 or 7 games and I've yet to play any (too much Mass Effect and Dragon Quest on the 360 and DS respectively).

Ahh... Blake Stone. Good memories. I think it was the first game to have health stations, food machines and friendly scientists/NPCs. Always felt Half-Life borrowed that from Blake.

In my case it's night classes sucking up my leisure time, but it's still very tempting to expand my game collection even though it could be months or even years before I have time play them. These days my DS is my primary gaming system since I can play it anywhere. It's the "sit down for hours at a time" games that I don't have the time for like I used to.

Well, I finally bit the bullet and completed my first Good Old Games transaction. Wow was it easy! Select your purchases, type in your credit card number, and download. I can see why some of you guys are so addicted to it.

My first two games: Duke Nukem Atomic Edition and Duke Nukem Manhattan Project. Hey, gotta support the 3DR crew, right?

Cool, sounds great. I haven't bought anything from them yet but I definitely will once I run out of games to play.

I see they support PayPal too, which will make it even easier for me.

LOL! So they were the first to feature those gameplay elements? Blakestone and ROTT have a special place in my heart, even more than the original Wolf3D. And that's saying a lot. I remember trembling with fear every time I heard a machine-gun toting nazi in W3D and those scientists in Blakestone were no different. I can still remember all the level layouts.

Good times from the golden days.

As I like to say, good gameplay never becomes obsolete. That's why games made 20+ years ago are just as much fun today as they were when they were first released.

Biggest selling point for me is the non-DRM thing. I don't care if the games are old, as long as they're games I like.. having DRM free versions is awesome.

Their business model is selling "Old" games and "Old" is something relative. Far Cry is technically an "Old" game since it was released five years ago. There are newer games on GoG btw. I assume "Old" in GoG's context means something closer to "old enough to not be available in retail stores" than anything else.

Which is a good thing because i prefer GoG's service so far to anything else, Steam included. They seem to actually care about the games being there and the people who support them.

I've already picked it up on Steam so probably wont get it on GoG, but Beyond Good and Evil is a damned good game that is worth checking out if you haven't already. Nice to see it getting around a bit more.

No invisible walls, true. Instead, it had a helicopter that would suddenly appear and insta-kill you. Personally, I would have preferred invisible walls. My primary complaint with the game was its atrocious checkpoint save system. A checkpoint save system in a game with free form levels. I still have no idea what the developers were thinking.

Yes, I know you can manually save with cheats, but everything I've read tells me that's a good way to break your game.

The AI and checkpoint system both were bullshit. Not to mention when it takes 10 headshots with a assualt rifle to kill a dude.

Far Cry is a wonderful game, and it's not as frustrating as people make it out to be. I like it better than many other and more popular shooters.
Great addition to GoG.

Exaggerating much? Yes, the enemies took a lot of damage when shot in the chest, but head shots were pretty much one hit kills.
But the AI's superhuman hearing was my only gripe with it.

But yes, the checkpoint system was horrible. And this was the first time I felt CryTek were full of it. They promised after the game was released they would patch in a quicksave/quickload feature. But never did.

And when asked about it... had nothing to say.

Re: Good Old Games
Question, have they fixed the dual core bug for POPSOT? Also I remember Beyond Good n Evil having a nasty bug which drags your framerate if you set water settings to maximum.

Ubisoft needs to bring in the rest of the POP games and the Gamer's Edition of King Kong.

For the dual core issue with Sands of Time GOG will be using their gogwrappper (gogwrap.exe) since with that they can force affinity settings to a certain core..

They did the same with Kingpin Life of Crime where the affinity core is set too 3.. You can always change it in the registry however if you want it set to something else..

Quote:
Just look for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\GOG.com\ all games should have their registry settings there

Look for the string values AFFINITY & AFFINITYCORE

AFFINITY turns affinity on and off
and AFFINITYCORE choses the core the affinity is set too
And in reguards to the Watter Setting issue with Beyond Good & Evil that's something Ubisoft has to fix.. Wich I sincerely doubt they did sadly

Can't blame them, the team that handled the PC version isn't in Ubisoft anymore. Even if they did fix it Nvidia and ATi will somehow find a way to break em.

Yeah, we'll need some good Windows emulators later on, something better than Virtual PC and VMWare (those two aren't bad but there is TONS of room for improvement when it comes to running games).

Anyway, trouble with sites like these is it's too easy spending money! Just got a few Revolution games.
