Can't see the games' year now with the new layout

 

I can see the release date in the information on the right hand side of the screen under the Buy box.

I didn't know so many games were released on January 1. >:|

Didn't mention I'm on mobile xD

The info is after the reviews. Weird layout.

I almost asked you that before posting.  I have never viewed GOG as a mobile page and most mobile site layouts bug me.  I change my browser on my phone and tablet to display desktop and then change to mobile if desktop isn't working.

 

I wonder if the desktop layout is in columns so the right hand column ends up at the end of the left hand column (where the reviews are) on mobile.  Or something.  I'm too lazy busy to view the source and analyze.

Most of Daedalic's games are now much cheaper for me - about 66% of their US MSRP. Nordic Games' products are still the same price. Oddly, Deponia 2 is $20 while Deponia 3 is $11.

 

Heh, maybe I can help folks out with sales now.

Silver for me too. Sad to see some games leaving GOG but no more Jack Keane 2 clogging up sales at least.

Spent quite a while looking through reviews and added these ones that I didn't have already.  Came out to $20ish which seems like very good value:

  • Desperados: Wanted Dead Or Alive
  • Full Spectrum Warrior: Ten Hammers
  • Guild 2 Renaissance, The
  • Guild Gold Edition, The
  • Painkiller Black Edition
  • Penumbra Collection, The
  • Silver
  • Spellforce 2: Demons Of The Past
  • Summoner

You know what's funny?

 

A lot of these games were published by JoWood and were part of a "they might be gone forever!" sale back in 2011. Then Nordic Games bought the catalog and kept the games up.

 

Now this happens.

I like these choices. I am not as fond of Guild 2 but felt #1 was much better though buggy as heck. I like less micromanaging is all.

For the most part, I like that list. You've pretty much picked the cream of the crop from the farewell sale. Though I'd probably swap Spellforce Platinum for Demons Of The Past and make two additions to this list (Freedom Force vs. the 3rd Reich and Red Faction).

 

That's not to say that you need to buy those games if you're not interested. But your list and those two games that I added should be a starting point for people looking for help sifting through the pile of games.

I'll wait for Full spectrum warrior complete on Steam (if I ever decided about buying this game). Now I'm looking at Guild 1, can't see it on Steam.

Yep, I agree.  I have Spellforce Platinum on GOG and the Freedom Force pack on Steam - I can definitely recommend Freedom Force; had lots of fun playing it.   Pondered Red Faction 1&2 for the longest time and finally decided that even at reduced prices I have plenty of shooters in the backlog.  I find the older strategy and RPG games age gracefully but when it comes to shooters... not so much. :P

Some Activision games at 60% off and some Europeans complaining about the new website, they want their old and safe colors and layout back. Maybe they'll ask for a chat room next.

I want Dark Reign and Spycraft but not at a mere 60% off. Try again, GOG.

 

You know, I might want a chat room too. But I'd probably just look at it a couple of times and put it away like I do with most of my GOG collection. I think the new site layout is fine, although with the exception of the lack of a "dark" theme, it does look a bit like they're trying to emulate Steam.

I don't like that it doesn't say Owned for the games I own anymore. They are shaded a tiny bit, almost to the point where I can barely tell it's shaded.

I think they should color the box green or something like that.

IRC oh that's cute. They should sync up with Friendster accounts, but that might be too new fangled for them.

Silver is the only GOG exclusive on the farewell sale list...in case anyone was curious. What can't be found on Steam can be obtained through gamersgate or amazon PCDD.

Guess I'll bite on Silver.

Wonder what our resident Codextards think of it.
