I play all my games on YouTube.

What are you going to watch now that Telltale is no more?

I've got to hear more from the devs behind the series before in giving any praise on that

A little clickbaity since it states in the article that nothing has been finalized about working with the original devs but I guess that's the plan.

Thinking about buying the third tier anniversary bundle. But I already own Shadow Tactics on GOG. Supposedly you get a gift code for any game that you already own. Would anybody be interested in buying that gift code for $5?

As pointed out Witcher 3 live concert is free right now.

 

Also Jill of the Jungle Trilogy is free and available here

 

I actually ended up beating Jill of the Jungle (the 1st one) in about 35 minutes or so. Here is a mini review:

 

Spoiler

 

Overall I'd recommend it to old school 2D platforming fans, though the platforming has issues. It plays so quickly you'll likely be able to finish the trilogy in less time than a game of Super Mario Bros 3. I approve the game!

I don't know how, but Jill of the Jungle Goes Underground was worse than the first. There was a lot more obnoxious sound effects especially for jumping where it sounds likes Hulk landing after a jump.The game also became a lot more puzzle and maze like which led to easily 2 of the worst levels. They were garbage levels because of the unreliable weapon and jumping in one and the monotony in the other. Why couldn't they just stick to more basic platforming and killing some enemies to reach the level with a few jumping puzzles and switch puzzles. This one took about 45 minutes or so and was nowhere near as fun as the first. It's easily a 5.5 even cause of the very annoying jumping. It's so similar to the first but just worse. It just boggles my mind.

 

I'm likely playing the last cause after these 3 any 2D platformer will feel pretty good. So yeah that was my Jill of Jungle Goes Underground review. Same as the first but worse and with more out of place sound effects.

I have a question about gog and downloading their games. Can I download a game to my android phone and then transfer the data to my pc? For example, I noticed that each game in my library has 2 versions, the gog installer version and drm free version. Is the drm free version that you click download on in firefox on android going to download the entire game? I know this seems like an odd question but I have unlimited 4g on my phone and am currently limited to around 70KB/s on my pc.

update: It appears that the gog installer version of a game is just a few megabytes and I can't seem to run it on an android device to get the full download. so does the drm free version of a game download completely as a set of files that i can transfer to pc and install there?

If your data plan includes mobile hotspot (or if your phone is rooted), consider using that to connect your PC to your phone's 4G connection and download directly to your PC.

 

 

As for me, I've not kept up closely with GOG and all the changes in the last 2-3 years. When they split up their bundled installers (e.g. King's Quest 1+2+3) in early 2015, I downloaded those before the changes. Since then I haven't really cared about downloading GOG games or goodies (IIRC on a few occasions certain bonus materials have been removed from download pages). In the last 2 years I've spent a grand total of $5.63 on GOG, but in that same time period I've added 100+ games for free from GOG Connect or their other giveaways.

 

It appears I have about 170 games that aren't backed up. Many of the older installers had one or more patches, so I don't really care about the separated installers if I were to update backups. IIRC GOG started sneaking Galaxy files into installers, then threw a bone to annoyed customers and added "classic" installers if you dug through a menu on the download page and changed a setting. Now it seems they show both the Galaxy and offline installers together.

 

Anyway, someone on the GOG forums wrote a script called gogrepo that will download a user's GOG library and look for changes. I might give that a try but I'd need to get a dedicated drive for GOG games. At this point I don't think I care enough to do that. If GOG ever shit the bed then I'd obviously want to have backups, but for the near future it's not a pressing concern. I've never bothered using Galaxy but I'd be fine with it for installing and playing games instead of using the offline installers.

 

rambling thoughts on the state of GOG:

What are the general thoughts on GOG these days?

Some users are getting a free game from their wishlist added to their accounts.

Checked my e-mail...

Apparently they're just giving away Telltale games, so if you didn't have any on your wishlist you very likely won't receive anything.

Looks like not liking Telltale games has finally bitten me in the ass.
