    Do people just hate the EEs and Beamdog? Is there anything actually wrong with the non-EE Planescape Torment on GOG?

    I don't hate them per se, it's just that I don't condone their practice of not giving people a choice to either just get the original version or with the EE. Not to mention that they actually listed themselves as THE developers of the game, instead of the original developers.

    Also, I don't see much value in their 'enhancement'. The EEs are basically the games + essential mods with extra steps, why would I pay them 10 bucks for that when I could do it myself and it's already pretty simple?

    If you bought originals on gog before, then they are still in your library. If no - either embrace the EEs or go to good old downloads onion mirror*

    Like I said, I only began buying stuff on GOG long after the EEs is released. The only ones I managed to grab before the EEs are PS:T and NWN1.

    Fuck that

    Nice, I've heard mixed things but for $20 I'll support that.

    As for the IE games, I bought them all before Beamdog's versions came around so it matters little to me, but it's not like Bioware or Obsidian saw money from that shit anyway. All you're ever paying GOG for with an old game is the "legal" right to have the game and the ease of downloading it from their servers, plus maybe some compatibility work. In other words it's not like they took money out of Avellone's pocket and gave it to Oster. If you just don't want to give Oster 10 cents though, then whatevs.

    I just found something though? If I go more->serial keys I get http://www.gog.com/redeem/XXXXXXXXX?pp=XXXXXXXX I assume that I can pass it over?

    Ok guyz if one is willing to check if it works its time for another deterministic raffle. I might have originals to be redeemed on gog:
    - iwd
    - pst
    - bg1
    - bg2

    to enter you must paste a ss showing some cringy romance mod from any of those. Ping Delterius if you need help with that.
    Winner will be chosen by quick algo: <cheat code for 5 black dragons in hmm2> modulo <number of people wanting given game>

    That really bugged me since I frequently filter by studio.
    Btw, for a Linux version are EE okay? I'm not really into modding original Windows version via Wine.

    Picked up Combat Mission BtB, Stalker COP, and Mount and Blade Warband at the last minute before the sale ended. Sale overall was meh, but can't beat getting almost 60 bucks worth of games for 15. Gotta help those poor Polish kids buy some more potatoes.

    I bought the Pool of Radiance series. I like that the combat is a turn-based isometric game, even though exploration is blobber-like.
