GOG 2021

GOG is currently offering the Age of Wonders: Planetfall games at a 75% price reduction:
Age of Wonders: Planetfall - Standard Edition for $12.49 U.S.
Age of Wonders: Planetfall - Deluxe Edition for $14.99 U.S.
Age of Wonders: Planetfall - Premium Edition for $22.49 U.S.

Just a heads up, looks like the spring sale has started over at GOG.com.

If anyone has held off purchasing XCOM 2, now is the time to buy. GOG is offering the base game for $4.79 US. That’s 92% off its usual price of $59.99.

About time they announced something about xcom 3 too!

Just picked up 1942: Pacific Air War, 1943: European Air War, and F-14 Fleet Defender for under $10. It’s the 90’s again!

You don’t own these ALREADY?

I’m just playing Sword of the Stars for the first time. I feel much shame.

Of course. I have the original CDs in my closet (and probably the floppies from the OG releases tucked in the boxes) and the Steam versions. But apparently the setup on the GOG is much better for audio, etc. than the Steam releases, and it’s worth $10 to me not to have to figure out how to optimize DOSbox to fix perf issues and screaming audio emulation. :)

I meant you hadn’t bought them on GOG already?! Lame man. Lame.

I got super excited but I was mistaking this with Rowan’s European front flight sim which I have been reading about for 20 years. Still curious about those, though; do these have a good campaign mode, or were they MP oriented?

Those are really low prices… but nothing really sparked my interest and I’m not going to play 20 years old video games. I still have a few newer games sitting in my library waiting to be played :-(

Just got an email from GOG, they’re giving away copies of XIII - you can see the offer on the front page.

It’s probably quite rough now, given it was rough when it first came out. I bounced off it hard, but somehow ended up getting back into it. I had many happy hours with that game. I really hope you do too.

You may prefer to start on 2D-esque map types, as full 3D can be very hard to navigate as a novice.

Steel Rats is free of charge at GOG.com for a short period of time.

The Fate series of dungeon crawlers by WildTangent, starting with Fate in 2005, have made their way on to GOG. A complete bundle of all four games is available and is currently 65% off too.

Okay, is anyone else having trouble with Galaxy? I’m missing a DLL file, so I tried redownloading it, but now it won’t connect to the servers.

It doesn’t impact a whole lot, but it is annoying.

Last update has issues, apparently. Galaxy frequently crashes on startup now, and that never happened before.

Siege of Avalon arrives on GOG.

Did anyone here play those games when they originally came out? I know I didn’t, and I’m curious to know what people think of them…

I played the first one a bit. It seemed a solid, story-driven little isometric CRPG of the kind I like, but it didn’t grab me enough to play it all the way through. However, I was deep in the throes of WoW addiction at the time, so really not a lot of other games were grabbing me.

Time for a blast from the past, a 1997 blast to be precise. Infogrames’ point & click adventure game Voodoo Kid is now available on GOG.
