I'll give this one another try when I get some free time…which should be in about 6 months….
Yeah, all the old games were horribly, excruciatingly slow on the AI turns. I remember I used to go get snacks, read a book, etc, during my long campaign sessions of HoMM2 and 3. But they don't play that way on faster machines—I play HoMM3 on XP all the time and the AI turns fly by. Hopefully that will be the case with the GOG version of LOM.

The problem I had with LOM on XP is that the actual battles fly by so fast you can't follow your moves. The graphics are also pretty grim and primitive, even by the standards of the day.

Anyway—I fully sympathize with having a long playlist atm. This is definitely something that can live on the back burner.

The current issue of the German magazine called " c't " comes with Windchaser and with Zoo Empire - and lots of more technical stuff, of course.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)

GamersGate has The Guild 2 Platinum for 19.95$. It includes the guild 2 + Pirates of the European Seas expansion + The Guild 2 Venice standalone expansion… for the American thanksgiving weekend.

I can't say much about the game yet, I just grabbed it myself, didn't think it had all that much to do with rpgs since it just seemed to be a sim game. But you get to make your character, adjust his stats upon creation, get xp and level up… You can go out and get into fights or you can be a craftsman or a merchant. I suppose its not really a RPG in the sense that you don't really go questing around, but it does have many RPG elements.

Oh and the game is DRM free for those who hate drms .

This even applies to the retail box versions of all their games.

This is a great sale indeed, thanks for pointing it out Thrasher . I'm ordering The Witcher EE tonight.

Regarding Risen CE…. I assume the box, manual, etc. are in German?

Yes. It's a normal retail DVD box with another carton around it which includes the gimmicks. I doubt it's worth an import.

BTW, you get a printed strategy guide, and other goodies with the EE box version, except for the director' cut censored content.

Which can be had as a download as a patch to the EE version, from here for example:

The strange thing is that the original Witcher and the EE version are both on their site for the same price.

Hmmmmmm. Should we be suspicious?

Oops, too late. I'll let you know if EE is really EE.
