It's a far better value to get the remake for $5 more on Steam imo... or hell, just wait for yet another daily deal on the remake and get it far cheaper than $10.

Huh, those graphics still look fine. The third one looked amazing IMO...definitely want to buy the third one, and maybe I'll get this...

I like GOG, but too many of their $9.99 price point games just aren't worth that price. I really like Serious Sam The First Encounter, but it should be at $5.99 and not $9.99.

love me some sweet GOG action! 9.99 isn't too shabby.

Best online trading website currently in my opinion.  Trust me I'm a CAG.

I agree, $10 for a decade old game is a little out of line for what I expect from GOG..

Why would anyone buy Serious Sam on GOG instead of Serious Sam HD? That's silly.

Hmm, I was able to pick up both Serious Sam HD 1&2 for $7.50 total during Steam's summer sale. Seeing this $10 price point for the old version kind of makes me lol.

Sure, but you don't own those. Plus this version looks surprisingly good to me from the screen shots.

No, he owns them. I've played them with him. I also got them during the sale. That was an awesome deal.

Serious Sam HD is such a misnomer because Serious Sam has ALWAYS been in HD resolutions. It's a freaking PC game, we've had "HD" for the past 15 years.

Yep, probably higher resolution than the Xbox version :lol:

You don't own anything if it has activation. Actually owning something means it's worth more.

Well, I guess for people with older PC's, or newer ones that can't run SS HD, this
release should do just fine.

No he doesn't. But if you buy a game off of Steam, you don't own it. You own only a license that can be taken away. Technically you don't even own your Steam account. Think about it. If Valve has the power to close your Steam account without warning, what do you own?

HOLY FLIRKING SNIT!!!
INSTANT BUY!!!

I completely forgot about Mountain King Software.

Classical vertical SHUMP action!

Question: was it ported to Windows, or does it come packaged with DOSBOX?

===========================================================

Perhaps they can do the same for Galactix and Demonstar? If they don't want to include
updated graphics, that's okay, but at least have it released on GOG!

Now, if they could make a new game, with the characteristics of each of those three
games, add co-op, and many gamers would be uber happy!

There was this poll GOG did that they had listed I think on their main page, and I think someone here linked to. Anyway they were asking to pick the three systems you'd like to buy games from based on a specific list.

They didn't have everything and I can't remember what I picked...I think it was SNES, Genesis, and Dreamcast that I picked. (They didn't list NES or Saturn I don't think...or maybe that's backwards.) Anyway obviously that implies they're looking in to that, which would be awesome! Especially after losing $100 on Nintendo's system that doesn't even have a way to transfer content to a new Wii (even aside from the activation).

So is Total Annihilation worth playing if you're not nostalgic for it? I know it was/is a big deal. Did it have a story? Was it hard?

It's on the GoG forums. Supposedly, it's the same version.

There's a story, but they really just amount to level briefings. It's still a really great RTS game and is completely fun to play. I'd say it's one of the easier of the genre to grasp. Some of the later levels could be considered hard, but by the time you'll reach them you should fully understand what you need to be doing.

There's tons of content here between the main game and the expansions - air, sea and land battles and everything in between. Then you've got skirmish mode and about a zillion custom maps. It's definitely worth the price even today.
