I got the MM 1-6 pack mainly for World of Xeen since I already own MM6. Played WoX for several hours tonight but there are a couple of things that are keeping me from fully enjoying it. The first thing is the map. You can't scroll it or make annotations which can make it tough to get out of a dungeon if you don't remember where you came in. Lands of Lore came out around the same time and the mapping was way better. The other issue is the way items are handled. I hate having to make a trip back to town and visit the blacksmith just to find out how much damage a basic item does. From what I understand, you can't even get the Identfiy skill for your characters like you can in the later games.

There are a LOT of indie games discounted to 75% off today.. but not many older games lol. Some of the indie deals would be decent.. if they didn't require you to buy the bundle (Evoland, Driftmoon, FTL). Good deal if you can find someone with all of the games in the bundle to gift games individually to you, but I'll wait for an indie bundle.

Stupid, I want good old games from them, not mediocre new games that look old.

Man, I'd grab Incredipede and Evoland for $2.50 apiece in a heartbeat, if they weren't tied to bundles...

 

Is there an appropriate thread to see if anyone's wiling to help me out with that and/or trade some of my Steam stuff for GOG gifts?

The funny thing about the bundles.... I've got System Shock 2 and Omikron in my cart waiting to go. I'm just holding out to see if they get added to a bundle before the end of the sale! C'mon! I want to give you my money!!!

Well, now I have the 3 giants: Ultima collection (última 7 is the best pc game ever IMHO, already have it), D&D (I have the anthology or whatever name is, from gamestop, without NWN) and Might and Magic (from which I never played any have it).

What I can see is that the #9 is never good xD

Today's sale isn't too bad. I jumped the gun before I looked. There are some old games on sale, king if dragon pass is great if anyone doesn't have it yet and you don't need to buy a bundle to get the 75% off.

They did this same thing on the holiday sale last year: throwing all the "special deals" on a certain day (it was December 20,"end of days sale" if my memory is ok). All you see today is the entire sale as it is. I don't think they'll throw anything new later

I don't know, I don't really play games on my phone, but the price is right IMO

    Meh, i'll wait to get it for a cheaper price.

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 21 June 2013 - 01:47 PM

Thoughts on Kings of Dragon Pass? obviously judging by the ratings the game is quite good but how does it plays? Defender's Quest is a nice deal for $3.74 if you're into TD games but taking in consideration that i has card drops on Steam i guess i'll wait to hit 75% there. The Kain and Raziel Saga is an absolute must buy for that price, it sells almost for the same price than the Steam version and includes Blood Omen 2.

Hoooolleeeee crap! Talk about options. Today's bundles include everything that was available earlier in the week, and piles on a whole heap of other discounted games.

 

I've gotta get...

 

Fez

Retro City Rampage

Legacy of Kain pack

Builders Boon Bundle

 

There are still some games after those that I'm interested in. The space-sim bundle has Alpha Centauri, which I had been planning on eventually getting anyway. Are Master of Orion and Galactic Civilizations worth having? Also, what is the value for the Ultima bundle? It looks like a great deal but are those games worth it? Ditto for Heroes of Might and Magic. My brother loves that series but I've never gotten into it.

The Ultima bundle is worth it for Ultima VII Complete alone especially if you've never played it. I already own Ultima VII Parts 1 & 2, Ultima VIII and Ultima IX from their original releases but I'm thinking about grabbing this bundle anyway since I don't have a 3.5" floppy drive in my current PC. :D

Theres a rediculous amount of games that usually go on sale during all their sales, not even touched this time.  It really does seem like indie fest over there

Wow, that's quite a list of games on sale today. Presents a rather daunting challenge to post all of that. I'm up to the challenge though. But might take me a while to get it together.

 

I think juanjava is probably right. What we're seeing here is the complete allotment of deals for the summer sale. I doubt we'll see anything for the rest of the sale that isn't on the list today. So once I've completed the list, it should be pretty easy to do the rest of the sale because It'll just be a matter of copying & pasting from today's list of sales.

Don't waste your life on it - most folks are just going to click through to GOG anyway.

Also they still have occasional random deals that pop up.  I think last time they had a few dailies that werent part of the big full set of deals and they've basically said in their forum the same will happen this time.

 

Also some prices are different on a per-day basis vs. the whole deal lot.  Like the alan wake series was 90% off on its sale day, but today its only 80%

NOTICE: If you own some of the games in a bundle, you can complete it with the missing games with the bundle discount applied. All you need to do to get only those you are missing, is to click "buy now" button on a bundle, and then manually remove the games you own from your cart at the check out. Sorry for the inconvenience!



If you have at least 1 game from the pack, you can buy the individual games for the bundle-discount price.

 

 

Either I'm reading this wrong, or you're saying that if I only own 1 game from a bundle of 5, I can buy any of the other games in the bundle individually at the bundle's discount.

 

If that's what you're saying, it doesn't seem to be working.

An excellent point by you. I was gonna just buy everything in the sale today, but I think I'll wait for each item to go on sale on their regular day. Might end up saving a little bit extra.

Yes, by using the method in my post. I could have been clearer. Sorry.

 

Doesn't work. I own a couple of Bullfrog games, so I decided to test it out with that pack. Added all the other games to the cart, then started removing a few games. The games that were left in the cart jumped from the 75% discount price to the 50% discount as soon as I removed a game.

 

Unless there's some trick to it that I'm not doing.

 

EDIT: Just re-read the post you quoted fro GOG. It says you can remove the games that you already own and still get the discount on the remaining games. It doesn't say you can remove games that you don't want.

The way I read it is if you want to COMPLETE the bundle at 75% off then you can.  Not that you can pick and choose games at 75% off. 

 

So if you own 1 game, you can buy the remaining 4 in the bundle for 75% off.  Not like 1 or 2 of them.

The same thing is happening to me, I own Syndicate & Theme Hospital, I can add the whole thing to my cart, but when I start removing games I don't own all the other prices double. The intention is clearly like in the past to complete a bundle without rebuying.

 

That said, I think the Bullfrog bundle is one of the most attractive offers: Syndicate/Populous/Theme Hospital/Dungeon Keeper/Magic Carpet.

Yeah, that's how I read it. It does work for completing a bundle, but it doesn't work if you try selecting games from the bundle where you don't own all of the games in the bundle.
