    Funny thing I remember watching trailers for this game before release and getting pretty hyped about it but I never bothered to get it.

    Interesting.

    Also for Castlevania/Contra/Metal Gear, I guess this is the first time we see old console games released on GOG? And even Metal Gear is MSX version.

    Well actually this is a re-release of a 2002 collection: https://castlevania.fandom.com/wiki/Konami_Collector's_Series:_Castlevania_&_Contra

    [​IMG]

    So another low effort re-release.

    (Why they just didn't released last year's much better collections, that's a mystery. Maybe it's one of those cases that Western branch and Japanese HQ don't really cooperate with each other.)

    Real question is how much effort went into this PC version of MGS1 or is that ancient one where pressing ESC immediately closed the game to desktop.

    Honestly ridiculous given the state of some of these given that especially for 2, there is a fan patch which fixes a majority of issues. At most, there's always the possibility that Konami didn't want anything outside of their team put into their product but it's still really fucking basic on GOG's part to see them fix the modern OS compatibility issues of it but not something like fixing controller trigger inputs. I guess the one silver lining of all of this is that Silent Hill 2-4 might actually hit GOG one of these days now (and by in large minus 4's 15 FPS cutscenes and some of the graphical stuff, those ports generally fare much better than any of these old ones).

    Didn't buy 1 but given the version of 2 I just tried out has that in it, probably.

    For the original Metal Gear they have a patched rom you can play through Open MSX. $5.99 for an old game that users have made available for free? Reminds of Nintendo.

    Judging by the shock and awe across the internet, I think people forget those games had PC ports already and this is just a digital release of them. Wonder how many tweaks GOG made on their own, or if the fan patches are still required.

    Pretty much every PC game ever made "users have made available for free" bro.

    Hopefully they will add from Konami next Silent Hill 2-3-4. I don't think 1st one was on PC.
    I remember back in the day playing SH2 and 3 on PC.

    I wonder if we'll ever get a port of Metal Gear Solid 3 for the PC, the best of the series. If they include a gameplay tweak to quickly change between camos without having to go through menus, it would heaven... But I doubt it will ever happen.

    In my experience GOG usually do bundle deals with publishers and then trickle the games out here and other over a handful of weeks, so I would not be surprised at all if those show up in a couple weeks.

    I think TIE Fighter Collector's CD-ROM (not to be confused with Collector's Edition or Collector Series) is generally considered the best. IIRC it does have KBM support but it's not the best way to play the game. I think it's the version that GOG sells.
