I read the title too fast and it almost read like GOG Sold to EA in my mind.

Nope it's just more GOG sales!


and the Crusader games seems to have stolen Star Wars Clone Wars Storm troopers models (or more like the other way around considering when they were released).

Speaking of wich, to start the series is best with second Dungeon Keeper and ignore the first one as is not worth it if you own the second?


Thank you Zloth.

I misread it as GOG buying EA - but then I'm an optimist.

Igor - you'll probably be good just starting with Dungeon Keeper 2. There's no real story so you might as well get the advanced version. It works pretty well now, too, with GOG's fix for the game. (Just be sure to turn down the sound when a Dark Mistress jumps onto a torture rack. You don't want the neighbors calling the cops. )

$2.39 for each game…. that is really good. I can't imagine playing Privateer all the way through but for that price I can just play it for one evening and get my money's worth! Heck, that's cheap enough to get Starflight 1 & 2 - it's only a couple of bucks more than the free version. Wing Commander 4 is a heck of a deal, too.

That will never happen, due to the trademark being in such an epic confusing disaster (see http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/pos…-system-shock/) sadly.

Yeah, I know it's just wishful thinking at this point. Besides, a GOG version of System Shock would be inferior to System Shock Portable anyways.

I'd love to see a digital download version of SS2 someday though.

Is the GoG fix necessary or is it something I can apply to an old CD version too?
