Shoot, all the digital download deals are starting to add up. Decided to get the Longest Journey and Arcanum. Still contemplating Syberia and Psychonauts though.

Bought Arcanum, since it's $3, and I played the Fallout games two or three years ago and they were still super fun, so if Arcanum is anywhere near as good, I should get some play out of it. Now to find the time to do so!

You can get patches/mods for Arcanum here:

Haven't tried any out, but there does seem to be a well functioning high-resolution patch.

Went for Arcanum, Syberia, and the Longest Journey. Arcanum I can't seem to get the unofficial patch to work, guessing it has a different exe or something.

Just bought Duke Nukem. Upset that I spent 6 on Arcanum. :(

Are you following the manual's instructions? If so, check the next-to-last post in this thread.

Wow thats dumb, haha. Thanks for that link! Now we seem to have a problem with dying... Apparently you can set a server to have you respawn after 10 seconds or something? Anyone know what to do once you die in multiplayer? :P Thanks! That seems to be our last obstacle to overcome before actually being able to enjoy the game.

So wait, has anyone had fun playing Arcanum online (not via LAN?) Or is Arcanum really meant to be a single player game?

Guys.. the extras are worth the price of admission by themselves! For example, with Torment. you get a PDF book (almost 500 pages!) , artwork, and character cards AND the soundtrack! This is BEYOND a good deal!

It's been a long time since I owned it, but I don't remember anything about the multiplayer. Everyone just played it as a normal single player RPG...

How does the GOG version of Jagged Alliance 2 run on modern computers (Win 7 64-bit specifically)?

I have it on Steam, and it works fine on my Win 7-64 laptop. I would take that as a sign that the GOG version runs fine, too. :) But you can always check the GOG forums for specific issues, they used to be quite good. (It seems that the recent market stunt made a lot of the decent community leave, sadly, and there's currently a dickhead surplus, but there should still be some old threads.)

The Longest Journey is a must buy. Best PC adventure game.

It works just fine. Just make sure to run as administrator or you won't be able to save.

I grabbed up Arcanum. I may get Duke, Psychonauts, and Syberia before the sale is over.

Good to see the sale fails to load in the last hour. New and improved website, huh?

Thanks for checking, though.

Maybe they'll extend the sale again. The site went down during the last sale(or maybe the one before that) so they extended it by a day.
