I already have Descent 1-3. :( Dang it, I could have gotten them for cheap.

I know the feeling. I already had Freespace 2, which is among the games on sale. I want to catch a sale with the D&D games. :/

They had one recently, yet I had all the DnD games I wanted.

GOG.com is wonderful lollipops dipped in dark chocolate and wrapped in a layer of tangy Key Lime and sweet graham cracker. It literally lets you relive classic DOS and early Windows gaming at and at its finest. And it's worst too. It doesn't kid anybody.

Abandonia is equally awesome if not moreso. They've got a bunch of free old games, and for the ones that aren't free, they typically link directly to the relative GOG page or owner's page for purchase. Then if you want some old game ISOs, just get a free account and scoot on over to their ISO Cellar in the forums. I've currently stockpiled over 130 gigs worth of old games between both and otherwise given GOG.com my well deserved business. Squee.

And I thought Steam was the only awesome game market for PC peeps.

Some of the Ultima games on there are free at the moment...

I have a GOG account…have Neverwinter Nights 1 from it (Mate bought it for me in exchange for when I got him NWN2 on Steam when it was on sale).
I don't quite like it, it's just a personal thing. The site is amazing, but the way they present it put me off, I guess. Didn't like their downloader and such.

The downloader's pretty convenient, actually, but you don't have to use it.

Hah. I just realized now that your Skype name is in your sig.

I have in myy possession two copies of the Diamond edition of NWN in cd form, so I never bought it on GOG. I first created my account when I wanted a legit copy of Freespace 2 years after I lost 1 or 2 of the cds for it. For now, I only browse the site when an email they've sent about a sale actually piques my interest, and I share the news here. *shrugs*

I bought AC1 - Director's Cut for $10 on Monday (it was 50% off). I just managed to finish d/ling it and installing it.

IT'S SO AWESOME.

It runs so well on my machine--better than on my Xbox! I think I might just sell my AC1 for my Xbox 360. Also, I got my Logitech Wireless controller (which is constructed like an Xbox 360 controller) to work, and it functions just like in AC!

I also got a bunch of bonus stuff: Art book, complete soundtrack, official soundtrack, etc. I feel like I got the collector's edition for so much less than the normal. <3

I'm happy.

Grabbed it myself too, along with most of the summer sale. Not sure if it'll run on my machine or not, but at least I've got it.

Septerra Core yelled at me when I tried running it. Issues with fullscreen, somehow. >:C

I have no issues running AC1. ^_^ I'm quite happy. It looks like there are new investigations such as escort missions and rooftop chases. Those sound fun! :D

They're all pretty well priced on Steam, and it's been a really long time since I gave the series a chance.  I wasn't wild about the first one, but it might be time to try again.  There are four out now, right? 1, 2, revelations, and brotherhood?  I might pick them up on Steam.

Yeah. The order of the story is: AC1, AC2, ACB, ACR.

LOOK OUT. AC2 has nasty DRM.

What's it entail?  Mind you, I have no intention of pirating a game which is easily obtainable =]

EDIT

Okay, just read through the DRM on wikipedia.  That's stupid.
