GOG summer sale: whach ya gettin
« on: June 19, 2013, 11:30:20 AM »
Curious to learn what people are getting or looking at getting during GOG sale. Just about the whole library is on sale.

Here's what i'm looking at[it seems like i'm in an FP mood and playing games that end]
it ends July 6th so i have time to talk myself out of some of these.

DEUX EX 1 GOTY
THIEF 1&2 [they just released a new installer today with the latest new dark renderer]
IMPERIALISM 2
PAINKILLER BLACK
STRONGHOLD CRUSADER HD
FARCRY 1
CLIVE BARKER'S UNDYING

the only ones for sure right now are deus ex and thief 1&2, in fact i'm downloading a new texture pack for deus ex right now :) and haven't bought the game yet.

I may finally break down and get The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition (whatever that means)....it's $5.99 today.  I really enjoyed the first Witcher but this one seemed to get mixed reviews, but at that price I could skip lunch and break even for the day.

Ha...Tinkershuffle, we posted our notes at the same time.  Good luck with the game.

You too. :) I'm scared to install it though because of the total neglect of real life duties it will bring along for a couple of weeks..

I'm thinking of picking up the Freespace games and Independence War 2 along with IL2-Stormovik.

(I kind of feel like flying a bit. :) )

ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

Signal Ops
UnEpic

Even with all the games I have on my plates at the moment, I bought....

King of Dragon Pass
Planetscape Torment

I'm really tempted to get the wing commander, commando, and imperialism series. But I already have a ton of games in my back log......on second thought, who am I kidding I'm going to break down and get them anyway......
PanzersEast: Have to think to myself.... will I play the first one by the Winter Sale?  Probably not, then I should remove Dragonfall
PanzersEast: but that is thinking too logically.... and Steam Sales are about ignoring Logic

I think with 76 games I have all the ones i think i want from GOG right this minute.
Some have aged poorly but some are still great games for dirt cheap.
Maybe I will get a few more just because...

Gave up on GOG sadly. I bought Alpha Centauri at Christmas as it was just under 3 pounds (English pounds) problem was there was a hidden charge, they deny it was them and the bank are saying the same, think it was the currency translation, I ended up with it costing near double the price, still not a lot when you look at it but it is not what I read the original price as so am reluctant to buy anything else, shame as there a few on there that I would not mind getting, I have the originals but have to juggle DOS or some other magic to get them working, so getting the GOG versions would be great.

I am sad to hear that.  I have had very little trouble with GOG.

Anyone have comments about Signal Ops?  The artwork looks great!

I may purchase Caesar III for some nostalgic fun...or maybe B-17?  Or perhaps Comanche Vs Hokum?
Now, the problem is, how to divide five Afghans from three mules and have two Englishmen left over.

I'm probably going to pass. Sure, I could buy a pile of games...that I would never, ever get around to playing. Not much point to that, really.
