    On Humble and subscription models in general - I wouldn't mind one if paying a certain amount monthly would give me the option to play any game on the store without additional payment.

    I think part of their problem comes from poor understanding of titles with following. I was really disappointed when they rejected Vigilantes. Rejecting Grimoire was another mistake. While these games are in niche, they have their following willing to buy them and some of us always prefer DRM-free option.

    They have showelware issue but too little new really interesting games. They got Phantom Doctrine which was potentially very interesting but turned out to not very good during launch. Having Grimoire and Vigilantes might had helped.

    For good old games they don't have, they could try getting Airborne Ranger (Microprose), Buck Roger 'Gold Box' games (SSI), and Strike Fleet (Lucasfilms games / EA). Each has something unique, Airborne Ranger wasn't Commando clone for sure, Buck Rogers games had space battles and Strike Fleet is still waiting for sequel which isn't too ambitious in scale and micro. I don't think any of those alone would be huge seller, but would generate some sales at least.

    Problem with Airborne Ranger is that PC version is way inferior compared to Amiga one and there are some legal constraints that stops GOG distributing emulated versions.

    PC version appears to be inferior to Amiga version indeed. I take PC version over nothing at all, but it might be that people who might be willing to purchase are limited to those who played it on C64 or PC for nostalgia. Those who played it on Amiga or ST probably won't bother.

    The Hellfire expansion is missing though, due to that being made and released by Sierra On-Line.

    I'm very surprised they released Diablo. I thought Blizzard would protect their IPs' digital distribution like the purest of virgins.

    Isn't Sierra in Activision's hands tho?
    It's more about expansion pack being made without consent from original creator by other studio and it's not canon offspring that's best forgotten.

    What we really need is Freeablo to be finished.
    It might look dead but I see recent commits on the github site.
    wheybags (a factorio dev) and others are chipping away at it.

    Never thought we'd see any of Blizzard's games land on GOG.
    We're bound to see the lot eventually: Warcraft 1+2+3, Starcraft Classic, Lost Vikings, etc.

    Holy shittu. Did not expect this to happen. It bodes well for the future if GOG and the likes of Blizzard can reach deals like this.

    Whoa nice.

    Seems likely this is a result of the recent changes at Blizzard, no? Activision suit: "Why aren't we making money from these old games, morons?"
