    Who cares about finishing the SSI 5 star general catalogue or bringing in more Raven games when you can have that, right. They probably aren't even trying anymore.

    Gog is one of those modern miracles, where as soon as you criticize them for doing something, they immediately dog-pile it, and do that thing to an order of magnitude greater than your initial criticism.

    It's almost like someone at Gog reads the thread here and skims the pages, looking for ideas on how to "improve" their business model.

    Wonder if recent Activion aquirements means easier/harder time with keeping/getting new/old releases here?
    Or maybe M$ buy GOG to drop old trash and help them keep afloat and getting new stuff from other IP owners?

    Bring back Heretic 2 so we can close this saga finally!

    NWN2 and IWD2 are on sale guys. Most of you probably have them, but I didn't, so now my collection of classic cRPGs is (mostly) complete.

    I have both in the box.
    Getting NWN2 golden edition or whatever (which wasn't an easy task when discs were slowly dying on PC, they made only few copies for our market despite RPGs being quite popular genre here), then you get through the dreadful installation process (disc switching combined with loud, jet engine noises of my old DVD drive and patching process with unstable servers on ADSL at full? speed) caused me to pick it up with slight relief.

    only heard about Hammer of the Gods due to... certain mechanic? Something something pillaging something...

    ODT is from Psygnosis.
    Does that mean... Drakan? Don't play with my heart, please...

    That's cool. I was just thinking about ODT the other day. I remember playing the demo of it ages ago. The controls were kinda wonky since it was a console port, but otherwise it was p. nice. If ODT is from Psygnosis then I hope we will see some other titles from them. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Overboard/Shipwreckers.

    Switchblade is a megadrive port. (1989)

    ODT looks to be win95 (alright! Win95 is usually a pain in the ass so hope this version works well) (1998)

    Head over Heels is pc version (2019)

    Soccer Kid is DOS (1993)

    Jim Power (Game purchase includes DOS, SNES, NES and Megadrive versions.) (1993) well... 4 versions seems rare.

    Hammer of the Gods (dos/windows) (1994)
    no wonder some say heroes+civ (NWC is the publisher) or is it?

    Moby 1
    Moby 2

    I know I recently in the last few months saw a soccer kid video or two as part of a review. I don't know why the emulation ports but windows & 95/98 is fine since i hate tinkering too much to get them to work. Of that group, Hammer of the Gods and ODT has my interest.

    Actually, Steam is rejecting a lot of adult content, so GOG is the sole bastion of hope for coomers. Praise Potatoland!
