    I liked "Dagon" from Stuart Gordon, though kitschy, it was pretty good. I prefered it a lot to the "Call of Cthulu" black&white shit posing as Godard (it sure isn't), that's fake "intelligence" (ha ha) all over the line. If you want to see black and white lovecraftian stuff, just watch "Through a glass darkly" by Bergman, he he he.

    OK, for ayone who cares: in spite of requiring only an 800 Mhz processor, the game requires SSE. Fuck.

    What did you think of the game?

    I thought it was great myself. Insanely atmospheric and genuinely terrifying at times.

    What's this doing in GD? Have the Kalinites discovered a way to funnel our reality into their quarantine space?

    It's pretty good. Only my version crashes every time you run into the hanging people early on now. I'll need to get the Steam version on sale at some point if I want to replay it.

    No. Not sure. I'll move it and thanks for bumping it.

    It's not. It is marketed as a survival simulation, though, so that's why I moved the thread here. It's either here or General Gaming.

    It's a survival horror. Put it where resident evil or silent hill would go.

    Or retardo it.

    Don't. Get the GOG version or search and apply fixes on your own.

    As far as I know the Steam version is still buggy and incompatible with certain patches (like the sucklead's patch, which can be used to fix the annoying issue with the rocks falling too fast).

    If you need the whole list of issues that the GOG version doesn't have:
    • Movement speed tied to the screen resolution -- as far as I can tell from my last playthrough, the movement speed will no longer slow down to a crawl if you're using any resolution above 800x600;
    • Blue light bug -- the cannon targets weren't visible unless you were using Windows XP;
    • Triangle raindops on AMD cards;
    • Incorrect skybox rendering.
    The only downside of the GOG version is the missing bloom effect, which was subtle but effective in the original version. But it's a small price to pay compared to not being able to beat the game at all.

    It's funny how Steam puts zero effort into older games and yet I bet their versions outsell the GOG ones 5 to 1, if not more.
