Technically, yeah, you probably could blaze through in short shrift. But it's far more fun to take you time and fully explore each area.

I finished the game in 12 hours or so in a stealth playthrough.

I didn't explore every nook and cranny, but I don't think that's necessary to enjoy the game.

I wouldn't say that's blazing through it, so I agree with Zloth.

Oooh, big EA sale at GoG this weekend. A perfect chance to pick up Dungeon Keeper 1 and 2, the Ultimas, the good versions of SimCity, and all sorts of other stuff.

If there are any Castlevania fans here who don't have Lords of Shadow 2 yet, you can get it for 65% off right now at Gamefly (Steam key). Use the coupon code AUG20OFF during checkout to get an addtional 20% off the sale price. The DLC is also on sale and so is LoS 1.

Thanks JD, next game up after Risen - BTW, the developers are offering ring tones from the NES original. I used the NES Shadowgate theme song as background music for a walk down my front porch area for Halloween for many years.

But the current game music sounds awesome -

Bastards hooked me. $16 for XCOM Enemy Unknown, Enemy Within, and two DLC packs. To the backlog it goes, but that's a ton of gaming for small loot.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

I just finished X-Com EW this weekend.

It's a fun game although it does get somewhat repetitive by the end I think.

Here's a bit of a surprise, GoG is about to stop selling a batch of games. There's one last chance to buy them before September. It's not just odd rubbish games, either. Amnesia, Gothic 2 and 3, Spellforce, and a few other big names are on the list.

I think you can get most of them on other platforms, but let's hope this isn't the start of a DRM-rush.

That's disconcerting. Doesn't bode well for Gog.

Apparently it's because they're sticking to their guns about the fair pricing policy.

So a game that costs $8 does not cost 8 and €8.

Brings up the interesting question - do you want to only be able to get it on Steam, or to have the "$8 = 8 = 8" pricing.

If it's on steam I buy it on steam anyways but I never like to see less choices.

I'm not too bothered honestly.

I apparently spent way too much on games I never finish whether on GoG or Steam.

My backlog is massive (yet still much smaller than others' I have seen) and I'm unlikely to finish it all.

So I don't care.
I know others do though.

I pay in dollars, so I don't care.

Is the issue that European suppliers (e.g. Germans) are getting less money from US buyers?

There's a truly excellent bundle being offered at Bundle Stars right now. It's called the Night Dive Bundle, and it includes..

System Shock 2
Wizardry 6, 7, and 8.
Bad Mojo
Harvester
The 7th Guest
The 11th Hour
I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream.
Shadow Man

$3.50 - Something just doesn't seem right about that.

GOG has just started some kind of "Birthday Promo" - Birthday of GOG, of course !
Selected games are 80 % off.

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)
