I see some games are going to be removed from their catalogue, but I don't think it is because of their fair price policy. Publishers/devs are paid the price, it's gog who gives out the difference. If something it helps them since people are getting more from their purchase, virtually buying the game at a lower price while the publisher gets the whole price.

Fuck regional prices. Anybody who doesn't think GOG is based is a valvedrone or just a full on retard.

Desperados, Red Faction, Gothic 2, Panzer Elite (if it's the one I'm thinking of), Painkiller.
I'd also recommend Penumbra and Amnesia if you're into horror games.

Gothic 2 Gold Edition is worth the 2$.

So whats the deal with the gothic series? I hear different things about which games are good and which ones are bad.

I always hear that 2 is good but that it needs a patch? Which patch?
Are 1 and 3 worth anything or is 2 the only good one?

play it fully patched man, its got some issues, but its so great I forgive them

Good. Gog sold community content as part of their product and bought the licenses for freeware or abandonware games.

Jack Keane if you're into great modern classic point and click adventure games like Deponia.

Guild 2: Renaissance with mods is pretty solid. I like the Sims shit, and it still feels like there is plenty to do and manage. I think as it is right now after two expansions and plenty of modding to fix the broken shit, it's a good buy.

Combat , performance and the game being too huge.

The first two things can be saved with the patch

Heads up for people planning on getting Gothic 2: It's a direct continuation of the first game. I'd recommend playing Gothic first. It's not 100% necessary but I think it's still important. It's not as good as 2 but it's still absolutely amazing.

It's not Gothic 2.

Anycase, getting Gothic 1-3 from GoG seem like good idea, considering issues steam versions have, especially Gothic 2.

Marketing stunt

During a period of days from September 19 to 22, 2010, the GOG website was disabled leaving behind messages on the web site and their Twitter accounts that the site had been closed.[15] A spokesperson for Good Old Games reiterated that the site is not being shut down, and confirmed news would be forthcoming about changes to the service.[16] A clarification posted on the site on September 20, 2010, said they had to shut down the site temporarily "due to business and technical reasons", with industry journalists believing the shutdown may be related to the nature of DRM-free strategy, based on Twitter messages from the company.[17]

On September 22, 2010, GOG revealed that this shutdown was a marketing hoax as part of the site coming out of beta.[18][19]

Most of them are DRM free available on Gamersgate and other sites. But there you get no fair pricing.

At least Gothic 1 is owned by Piranha Bytes and won't be removed.

Almost all the games that will be removed are owned by Nordic Games.

There were other games that caused things to back up, both in that initial sale and the later timed one, but I think the original Night of 100 Keanes was still the funniest. I don't think anything will quite replace it.

When Looking Glass went under some insurance company ended up with the IP rights to SS2. They demanded a kings ransom for said IP rights. Which is why SS2 hasn't been available until recently.

>>
>>260197954
Publisher goes bankrupt. Creditors seize all assets and auction off the rights. A bank gets them for $800 or something. Then they change hands a dozen times. The rights somehow ended up with an insurance company. No one at the company even new they had them till GOG tracked them down and sent them an offer.

/v/ gave them positive. Jack's score before the Keanening was 2/5. Now the average is 5/5 thanks to reviews like >>260198634. It worked - the next time it came on sale it sold rapidly because the clueless people thought the joking reviews were genuine.

And then /v/ was the marketers.

Someone who just wants a game would prefer to just get a direct game that they could play anywhere with no frills or need for a client.

Yeah the free shit isn't that great but it's a nice bonus, definitely wouldn't sway me to buy a game I'm not interested in though.

And fair pricing is excellent. They do need to get newer games for sure, I agree.

Do you mean the games or the service itself? Steam has caused me more problems than GOG and there was a long period of time where any old game I bought from Steam had zero attempt at making it work on modern systems. Thief for example, according to people I know who tried to buy it there.

People have differing opinions in this thread so mileage may vary. I personally liked it.

If you grab it, only grab Guild 2: Renaissance. It's a stand alone expansion that has all the stuff from the base game + Pirates and new features as well, as well as being the version mods and fixes are made for.

Haven't played it, what's there is what I've both played and can recommend. That is, don't play Red Faction 2 if you've already played Red Faction 1.

if you DO play Chaser, find a save file that lets you skip the underwater level

GOG stood is ground with is world pricing policy. They wanted to remove it to attract publisher. We, sustomer, said "Fuck off, GOG, don't sell out like that". They didn't sell out and said "Ok, fine, let's keep the fair price policy".

Results of that, Publisher want to GTFO. We wanted it. There's good side, there's bad side. That's it.

Haven't you noticed them trying to kill Red Faction over the years?

I remain unflustered. If you want to pirate RF Guerrilla, use an offline account and run it in compatibility mode for XP SP3 or the sound won't work. Also it's buggy as fuck, vehicle models and enemies like to flicker and disappear. Still worth playing.

Data is just ones and zeros. The significance is the intellectual property and licensing.

There is literally no difference between the actual game that Gamestop sells you, and a burnt copy of it. The only difference is licensing.

GOG is licensed to sell these games without DRM, and members of the scene are not.

Why would they bother removing the DRM when it's already been done? It's just putting in unnecessary work to achieve something that's already been done. The important part isn't the data, it's the licensing.

Honestly, I don't think Steam has anything (besides lots more of games) that matters.
I don't want a complicated gamer facebook and I don't need automated updates. I don't need achievements. I want it barebones. Just let me buy and download games.

http://yachtclubgames.com/2014/08/sales-one-month/

This was the first month. Only 15,685 were given out from Kickstarter.

Nobody uses GoG really because it doesn't offer anything that other services don't, and it offers less. They offer what, artwork and music that everyone can already get elsewhere for free? I can launch like more than half of my games outside of Steam anyways.
>>
>>260190436
Are you aware that they're using DOSBOX to make a lot of those games run on modern computers?
Are you aware DOSBOX is a free software and that the devs a donation page?
>>
>>260215078

DOSBox is also a GOG affiliate.

>http://www.gog.com/en/frontpage/?pp=b3f0c7f6bb763af1be91d9e74eabfeb199dc1f1f

So if you choose to buy GOG games do it through that link and they get support out of it.

Guy who played most of that shit. Here's my rec:
> God Tier
Gothic 2 Gold Edition (my favorite game of all time)
The Penumbra Collection
Painkiller Black Edition
> Great Tier
Amnesia the Dark Descent
Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive (a Commandos clone, really good with gorgeous iso graphics)
Freedom Force vs. the 3rd Reich (real time with pause tactical game where you control superheroes. The original Freedom Force is God tier)
AquaNox (it's like Freelancer except underwater)
> Good Tier
Red Faction (a decent sci-fi shooter on Mars, you can blow up walls and shit and it has vehicles)
Dark Fall: The Journal (Myst-style game, pretty decent atmosphere)
Dark Fall 2: Lights Out
AquaNox 2
The Guild Gold Edition
Spellforce Platinum (RTS/RPG hybrid, I loved it as a kid)


Meh tier
AquaNox 2
Neighbours From Hell (adventure/puzzle games about pranking a grumpy dude. Is cool to chain pranks and see him boil with rage)
Desperados 2: Cooper's Revenge
Gothic 3 (with the community patch it's a decent game)
Spellforce 2: Shadow Wars


> Shit Tier
Alien Nations (Settlers clone with a shit-ton of micromanagement. The graphics are ugly as fuck, get the Cultures/Northland games instead)
Red Faction 2 (doesn't hold a candle to RF1, can still blow shit up)
Guild 2 (was buggy as fuck when I played it)
Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods Enhanced Edition

Didn't play the other stuff.
>>
>>260216696
>What, you mean competing with Netlix and Amazon Instant?
They aren't competition, they just got BTFO by DRM-free.
>>
>>260219183
Forgot to add descriptions to
Painkiller Black Edition (Serious Sam game but in hell, the bosses are giant and the weapons are cool as fuck)
The Guild Gold Edition (hard to describe, it's an economic/politic/city builder thing, it's quite clunky of a game. I'd reccomend patrician 3 instead)

Also in good tier it should've been Aquanox 1, not 2.
>>
>>260219380
>BTFO by DRM-free
Have you seen GOG's catalog? It's fucking nothing.
>>
>>260219623

You're out of your mind if you think they'll ever get anything worthwhile

>>260219842

Did they ever get that new downloader/installer finished. Did they ever finish the old downloader, for that matter?

I think publushers are probably veering away because their distribution model is busted and dumb, which is causing them to lose sales.

Nordic pulls out because THQ bullshit.

They might come back later.

THQ is long dead. Nordic is making a killing on every other platform, and has made their contracts work on those services. GOG are surely losing sales because of their shitty distribution.

>Nordic GM Klemens Kruezer said in an interview. "The challenging fact is nobody has ever heard about Nordic Games before [the THQ auction]. There were so many articles with the headlines ‘Who the f*** is Nordic Games?’ We said, okay they were right."

Gothic 2
Spellforce Shadow Wars + Dragon Storm
Desperados
The Guild
The Guild 2: Renaissance

Did you play the first one?
If not, do it. It's genuinely good.
Desperados 2 is a disappointing sequel. The plot is worse, it has shitty 3d graphics with camera problems
Really, I'd rather avoid it if I were you. If you want more Desperados, just play Robin Hood Legend of Sherwood and the first 3 Commandos games.
