Not a spectacular deal, but I just bought Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition for $5.99.  Planning to run it on my newish laptop.  According to the entire world, the GOG version runs better than the Steam and Xbox versions.  I'm excited since it is one of my favorite games of all time

 

Some info on GOG version:

  • GOG version has the multi-core fix already attached to it, supposedly.
  • Large Address Awareness patch is already attached to it
    (to stop crashes & so you can utilize over 4GB of regular RAM).
  • Plus, since it's on GOG, there's no G4WL junk tied to it either since they don't allow DRM
    (everywhere else on PC, you'd have to mod it out b/c G4WL can cause lots of problems).

 

Check PC Gaming Wiki on FO3 for more info:

Shadow Tactics is 5.99. Lowest I've ever seen it, but I miss a lot of deals.

According to ITAD, it looks like it has been free at $0.00 before on GOG:

EDIT:

It's also been Free on Epic Store before too:

If somehow you don't own it by now...

 

Witcher 1: Enhanced Edition is on FREE Giveaway on GOG.com

I had the original release on CD-ROM or DVD or whatever years ago, but I've had the Enhanced Edition on my wishlist for a while and just keep neglecting to buy it whenever it hits $1.49.

Procrastination pays off today, and now I have the entire trilogy on GOG via one giveaway or another. They gave away 2 years ago; they had the 'link your PSN if you own Witcher 3 and we'll give you a PC copy of whatever version you own' promo for GOG Galaxy; and now this.

Whee!

Did you ever activate your CD-ROM/DVD key-code onto GOG?

 

That's originally how I got Witcher 1 onto GOG. And when it came to free upgrade time for EE, I did it via GOG.

Didn't. The original retail copy didn't make the move from CA to WI with me.

So free EE giveaway = I'm in, you crazy bastards.

Check your e-mail for promo codes on the Homeworld series. Mine shows this:

That might be worth considering if you feel like contributing to Randy Pitchford's legal defense fund.

Thanks. I had the code. Paid around 9 for the whole deal. It said that I save around 110 bucks.

I’m certain that if I’d ever heard of that game, I’d be excited. Or indifferent. Or somewhere in between.

Nostalgia was a big one for me on this game, but it doesn't really hold up. Pulled out my OG Xbox and only played for about an hour before moving on. Maybe it's (slightly) better on PC, but the alt-world aesthetic is the only real positive as it's gameplay is nothing engaging.

It's by IO Interactive.

 

Besides Hitman series and Kane & Lynch, this was one of their other games and IP's.

 

Fun game. Cult classic status. Glad to see IO's listed as the publisher and developer here, as EA published it to retail back in the day.

 

It's a fun third-person shooter/action game w/ an alt-history setting and premise.

I think it certainly helps, if this was played way back in the day.

 

I'd like to see a remaster, reboot, or sequel here. I thought this game was underrated, back in the day.

MysterD has the third highest post count in this thread. He is eclipsed only by myself and (inexplicably) talkinrock.
 
I gotta admit, that kinda surprised me. He does post a good deal during the gimmick sales (insomnia and such) so I guess he just piled up most his posts then.

 
How does talkinrock being up there surprise you? He used to be virtually every other post here when he was active.


Oh god, he's still in third place.

Do I not post enough in this thread or something these days ? ;)

 

Am I way behind the rest of the posters in here?

 

I normally do most of my posting in the Steam+ thread, but post here and there in this thread when they have big sales and/or I see something get added to GOG's DRM-Free party.

 

I'm also surprised some threads like GOG and Fanatical threads haven't been, more or less, folded into the very popular Steam+ Thread.

Not you, you egotistical toastbox, talkinrock still has more posts in this thread than anyone except you and The End.

Don't worry, you win for the 'highest number of rhetorical questions' award.
