In case you've missed the previous sales, Atari.com is selling the D&D Complete set (Baldur's Gate 1+2 w/expansions and Icewind Dale series) for $5 and the Neverwinter Nights Complete set for $7.50 as downloads through Saturday night.

OK so I bought these as downloads the other weekend through Impulse; anyone know how to patch the games? If I click the update button on the game launcher it just fails.

They are more likely than not completely patched already.

I might bite on this deal, I know its been done a few times, GOG and gamersgate come to the front of my mind.. but I've avoided it due to a huge backlog but something tells me I should just grab it anyways.

Anybody know what kind of DRM (if any) these DD games from Atari come with? I have some of these games on GOG, but it'd be nice to complete the collection, hoping they have no DRM or something very limited.

bought them as well last week from impulse. the game was crashing/not even running from launcher. i googled around and the thing that worked for me was going to where the game installed and made a desktop shortcut from the MAIN executable and it worked. mine patched. i'm pretty sure you can just download teh patch seperately and it should patch.

I found a link in the Bioware Social Network forums that led to servers that still host the patches:

FYI, this will probably be available for steam soon. Atari has it's stupid limited download service, so I would advise against buying from their service.

i am waiting for the enhanced edition for bg1 and 2 that comes out over the summer. that is a lot of gaming for $5 tho, torment is my all time favorite game

edit. picked up neverwinter for $7.50. never played it the series, but i loved the rest of these games in the genre, they should sell the early fallout series games as well.

The early Fallout games are not Bioware/Black Isle titles.

But they are readily available everywhere... Steam, GOG.com, etc. Fallout 1 and 2 were on sale on Steam last week, and GOG sales them frequently for $2.99 each.

Thanks for the tip about the Enhanced editions of BG! Looks like they'll get an iPad release, too. Now that is intriguing.

ugh. i am trying to download neverwinter nights, it keeps trying to put the download on my little c drive(has 2 gigs of space). I have a pretty empty 1 TB drive but don't get the option of choosing to do the installation there, it just immediately tries to install on the little drive(it is a 10 gig installation). then the little drive fills up, it stops, clogs up my system, I try to delete it and start over. I tried emailing their customer service, hope they have some suggestions.

How well have these games aged. Most older games are just so ugly they are hard to play through

Highly recommend both these deals.

Although I have to say NWN and NWN2 have aged the best.
