    Looks like it's Billionsoft, the Hong Kong-based company that launched Accolade label and released the new Bubsy game last year.

    Ah yes. Who themselves appeared to have swallowed up Tommo/Retroism's catalogue. You know I emailed them about that but never got a response.

    Well whatever the case is, at least this new owner seems more passionate about old games.

    Sorry, wasn't on forums lately, but you just go here https://support.gog.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?as=1649904300 and type your request. I directly said I didn't want the games because I'd never play them, got refunded almost immediately.

    edit
    New sale started.
    Why?
    Or more importantly - why they wouldn't keep the Christmas sale for longer?

    A sale again? Why not have a sale on at all times.

    I wonder if they are already noticing diminishing returns. Particularly on GoG, I assume most people would eventually simply have all or most of the games they wanted in their library. I sure do.

    GOG officials are cucks, they've recently deleted my GOGmix "Beamdog is the parasite of the industry" (which had around 500 votes at the time) because Beamdog demanded that. If such a small company can make them do that it really shows how insignificant they are. When you look at Sales of Incline thread and compare for example AoD sales (we know all sales thanks to Vault Dweller and we know Steam sales thanks to Steam Spy) the difference is just colossal.

    Looks to me like this is a "flash sale"-sale. Items that had a 75% discount yesterday no longer have it.

    This one might be worth paying attention to.

    Hmm... today with a new flash-sale I expected different prices, but many have still the same discounts as yesterday.

    Last time I bought a game was a year or so ago.
    The "new and improved" forum is slow as hell, there's now active moderation and censorship, and they did something with the general forum so that my Greasemonky settings don't work anymore.
    I still check on some of the sub forums, but that's all now.

    But to be fair, Good Old Games just couldn't last forever. After all, there's a finite amount of old games that are worth buying, while there is an infinite amount of new shit being released.

    I'm not sure I understand this sale. A couple days in I saw some new stuff added but after the last couple of days it seems to be the same 50ish or so games.

    Is there list available of games of which one could take screencaps using galaxy overlay?
    I did a little bit of testing (for example screencapping from Enter the Gungeon works, but Warwind isn't doable AFAIK).
    DosBox games cause no troubles in this regard.

    Since it's Sunday it will take some time until GOG employees will lock it or respond in it, so if you don't like Beamdog and how GOG behaves here's your chance to voice your opinion.

    Free for a while.

    The newest game is also -75%. Not sure if it's any good or not. I seem to remember people complaining about horrible optimization. Not sure if this was later fixed or not.

    EDIT: I love their description about TDR

    Show Spoiler

    About:
    Heads up!
    [​IMG] This game contains humour, strong language, and violence that some may find offensive. You may find it offensive in other ways, too. We do.
    Disclaimer!
    [​IMG] Stainless Games had no involvement in the development of Carmageddon: TDR 2000. So, you have been warned.
    Final Warning!
    [​IMG] So, hopefully that's clear now. Carry on! [​IMG] Yes, it's the game literally... SOME of you asked for! And so, in the spirit of "well, alright then, if you insist..." we present the third game in the Carmageddon series, in the knowledge that some of you Carma fans out there would like to have a complete Carmageddon collection in your GOG library. Nothing wrong with that. Anyway, here's what the blurb on the back of the DVD case had to say about Carmageddon: TDR 2000: The world's most controversial racing game returns with incredible graphics, fantastic game play and even more outrageous fun! Max Damage, imprisoned for life, plots his escape. However, there's the small matter of an army of police, hordes of gangsters and thousands of enraged inhabitants - all with homicide on their minds. To succeed, it will take a four wheeling genius with no morals, a killer instinct and a burning passion to escape. No such person existed... until now!
    • Drive 50 totally destructible vehicles.
    • Over 48 missions and races to complete.
    • 9 completely 3D single player environments to explore and destroy.
    • 7 multi-player game types in 9 custom maps.

    Is the recent Carmageddon game any good? I remember loving the second one.
