Wiki Post Updated 13 Apr 2015 - 14:35 by indef

This is a wiki post, and can be edited by anyone to keep it up to date.
About GOG:
If you haven't bought from GOG before, all of their games are no-hassle DRM free andalmost all of them come with bonus content (soundtracks, wallpapers, concept art, etc). These are also old games that typically would not work on new operating systems like Vista and Win7. GOG tweaks all their games to work perfectly with any PC! There are very few exceptions to this (i.e. Gorky 17).

How to do group buys on GOG - "Pick X, Pay Y" bundles:
There are two ways to do group buys on GOG, a "harder, less restricted" way and an "easier, more restricted, always works" way. The "harder, less restricted, YMMV" method requires intervention from GOG support, which is why I say it's "harder". Basically, in order to do a group buy regularly, each person in the group buy must own all of the games each subsequent person wants.

For instance, if you have a host (X), a secondary buyer who will be redeeming the code second (Y), and a third buyer who will be redeeming the code third (Z), then X will need to own the games that both Y and Z want, and Y will need to own the games that Z wants.

The reason you'll be contacting support is to separate the gift code into N amount of codes (all of the stories I've heard have been about splitting the code into 2 codes), each with certain games, which you specify, contained in them. It's worked for splitting codes into 2, so I'm assuming that they can do multiple codes (3, 4, ...) as well.

It is better to do this with people that you can trust, because it relies on trust to distribute the code(s) correctly. GOG group buys rely heavily on code distribution, so if one person screws up, the whole group buy can end up being a disaster in the end.

Harder, less restriction, YMMV
1) Get together a group of people who are interested in any combination of different games from the bundle.
2) Anyone can host. Host buys the bundle with all of the games that everyone wants in it as a gift and sends it to his own email address.
3) The host does not redeem the code, and contacts support asking them to split the code into N amount of codes, each with the selection of games from the bundle that each person in the group buy wants.
4) The group waits out the support request, and assuming support is able to fulfill the group's request, the host then distributes the keys according to which has which participants games in them.

Easier, less restriction, always works
1) Get together a group of people who are interested in a combination of games such that each participant owns all of the games that each subsequent participant is interested in. For the host, this means everyone's games, and for the last person this means he/she doesn't need to own anything.
2) Decide who will host according to the rules outlined above, and the host will buy the bundle as a gift, and sends the gift to his/her own email address.
3) The host will grab the code and redeem it for the games that he/she wants.
4) The host and each person thereafter will distribute the code to the next person in line to redeem the code until the last person redeems the code. Make sure that the order is clear and concise, because the success of the group buy depends on this. Also, keep in mind that all GOG codes have a 10 minute delay for redemption after each time the code is redeemed.
(Thanks to Severose for this!)

I have been quite interested in Rayman Forever, since I'm a huge platformer fan. However, I do wonder, is it worth it? Does the game hold up well after all these years?

I don't know, but I have fond memories of playing Rayman on the PSX when I was a kid (Rayman Forever is a really good port of that one; the original). I think classic platformers like Rayman hold up better than most genres because they aren't so graphically intense. Rayman still looks pretty damn good though!

I was looking at reviews on that one and the general consensus is that it doesn't even deserve to be considered into the Might and Magic series. Complaints of weak story, terrible linearity, etc etc. For $3 I can't imagine you can go all that wrong, but I can't say much about it.

I would say yes. I'm passing on the sale myself because I have the Rayman games on GOG already. Not interested in the others.

I would only consider Crusaders of Might and Magic if you like the video game equivalents of B movies. You might be able to reap some ever so slight fun from it despite, or maybe because of, how bad it is.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

You are certainly a busy CAG (I'm sure everyone appreciates the effort). Consider GOG deals taken off your hands then. ;)

This place is the best. Try Tiny and Big if you like platformer/puzzle games. HOLY SHIT it is fun.

I also had to snag Myst, I hope Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy wins for tomorrow.

Looks like it's blowing away Alone in the Dark at the moment (10642 versus 5903 votes), so it's pretty safe to say that Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy will be $2.39 at midnight. The game has always interested me; $2.39 looks like a steal.

Bought Myst for my grandma. The game always hurt my brain when I was a kid; I'm sure she would fare much better at it than me! :roll:

I'm probably in the minority, but I actually liked Indigo Prophecy a lot more than Heavy Rain.. I don't think you'll regret your purchase, but I wonder what the controls are like, and if it has gamepad support? I don't think I'd want to play it with a keyboard/mouse lol.

Haven't played either of them and I have no idea about controller support, but for $2.39 I really don't mind either way.

Does anybody know if $5.99 is a good price for 7th Guest? I've always wanted to play it and don't see it on Steam so I guess it won't be in the Steam summer sale. Is there anywhere I can find it cheaper (and compatible with Win7) or is this the best I'll find?

I was thinking about getting Myst: Masterpiece Edition as well since I lost my copy of the original Myst a long time ago but figured I'd wait until the Steam summer sale to see if they have a nice sale on the Cyan Pack since I'd like to get Riven and Uru as well. If not, then I'm in no rush to get it and figure it will be on sale again sometime.

Unfortunately the sale is over on both of these titles. Each new sale starts and ends at 9AM ET.

$5.99 is GOG's standard price for older games. They do have rotating sales so it's possible it may go on another GOG sale at some point however it may be some time before that happens. They don't have regular storewide sales like Steam so you would have to wait for a weekend deal and there's no telling when that would be. Could be next weekend (unlikely since it was just on sale) or next year.

Also the most they will discount generally will be 50% off. Don't expect 75% off since GOG doesn't go that low.

Ah ok, thanks for the info, I haven't used GOG very much so any info I can pick up is great. Actually I'm still somewhat of a Steam noob too (despite having nearly 60 games :-o) but I think I've gotten pretty well acquainted with the "cag strategy" for it over the past few months from visiting and posting on the Steam thread. I've only bought 1 or 2 games from GOG thus far but I do like their selection of older games and the fact that they're compatible with Win7. :)

IMO, Fahrenheit is a must-buy, especially at this price point (never been cheaper, at least in the uncensored version). This is one of Quantic Dream's pre-Heavy Rain releases, so I can't imagine it being anything less than stellar. I just have to go through that annoying hassle of calling my bank so I can spend money at Gog. That's the biggest headache when dealing with these foreign sites.

The first half of the game is great, without a doubt. The game starts to go off the rails towards the end though, so be prepared for some disappointment.

Definitely worth the $2.39 though.

I've read that in other places (one of the top reviews on Gog, for example), but I'd kick myself for not picking it up at this price.

Everyone seems to have the right idea of Indigo Prophecy - The first half is worthwhile, but be prepped for when the story goes aggressively and completely downhill. The gameplay is still intriguing, but it does wear thin once the quality of the story plummets.

I find the current voting scenario to be quite humorous - People seem to want Postal 2 more than Serious Sam. (Admittedly, I'm sure most own a version of Serious Sam 2 at this point.) I have played Postal 2, and I feel that a sub-$3 pricetag seems appropriate for the sampling of the game's idiocy.

Picked up Indigo Prophecy. I remember playing the demo when it first came out and being interested but never got around to buying the game for whatever reason. I have good memories of the AITD series but I have a feeling they haven't aged very gracefully. Hope some the Might and Magic and Lands of Lore games are part of this promo eventually.
