Good old Games (www.gog.com)

Nicked from WoO's forum. Cheers Tinus! :D

A website very much like Steam, made by the guys that made The Witcher. Their take on things is an interesting one: Classic games of yesterday (only the good ones, they tell the shit ones to go masturbate), drm-free, optimised for XP and Vista, 6 to 10 dollars including VAT, infinite redownloads.

It's currently in closed beta until the 24th, but after that things are kicking off for real.


List of current games wrote:1nsane
Colin McRae Rally 2005
Conquest of the New World
Descent + Descent 2
Descent 3 + Expansion
Die by the Sword + Expansion
Earthworm Jim 3D
Evolva
F/A-18E Super Hornet
Fallout
Fallout 2
Fallout Tactics
Freespace + Expansion
Freespace 2
Giants: Citizen Kabuto
Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising
Invictus: In the Shadow of Olympus
Jagged Alliance 2: Unfinished Business
Kingpin: Life of Crime
Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader
M.A.X. + M.A.X. 2
MDK
MDK 2
Messiah
Operation Flashpoint GOTY
Original War
Perimeter
Redneck Rampage Collection
Sacrifice
Shattered Steel
Shogo: Mobile Armor Division
Soldiers: Heroes of World War II
Stonekeep
Toca Race Driver 3


New games to be added every week. I got into the beta and I will report back as soon as I've borrowed my dads credit card (Paypal support is still in the works) and downloaded a couple of titles.

I'm very exited about this, been wanting to replay Sacrifice, Giants, Freespace, MDK2 for a long time, and I still need to play Perimiter and the Fallout titles.

Yeah I posted about this a while back. The open beta started today and people who signed up on the site will be receiving codes during the week to gain access. They will also be offering a 'buy one get ont free' deal for everyone who buys a game from the service.
Check out my new gaming blog Player State. Updated every Wednesday.

DRM-free you say? Free redownloads you say? Fallout that works you say?

I'll be using that I say.

Saw this in PC Gamer mag last month, great idea and some great games on offer. Will definitely be getting Shogo, Kingpin, Giants and Messiah.

Speaking of Shogo, why the hell haven't Monolith given us a sequel dammit (me wants new Blood game too!).

EDIT: Also, Planescape Torment please for GOG! Never got to play that either!
