Default GOG Anniversay Sale - Buy 1 Get 1 Free!

Deal is on the Interplay catalogue. Lots of great classics to choose from.

I am thinking of picking up Giants: Citizen Kabuto and Earthworm Jim 1 & 2 (yes 1&2 = one game from the looks of it). I mean you can't beat 2 (3 in this case) great classics for $6 USD, am I right? I never finished Earthworm Jim on SNES back in '97, I think it's about time! :)

Damn... i see at least 6 games I wouldnt mind having as DLC. Does GOG work the same way as steam? can download as many times as necessary but require a login to play? something like that?

No GOG is not like Steam, it is DRM free. You DL the .exe and it's yours to abuse as you please. :)

From GOG:

Quote:
Don't let your DRMs turn into nightmares (clever, no?). You won't find any intrusive copy protection in our games; we hate draconian DRM schemes just as much as you do, so at GOG.com you don't just buy the game, you actually own it. Once you download a game, you can install it on any PC and re-download it whenever you want, as many times as you need, and you can play it without an internet connection.

That's a very cool site, I was actually VERY surprised to see Heroes of Might and Magic 3 being the best seller of the week followed by the 2 which was second. Those are probably my favorite games and I always thought there were too few players (I was right since 3D0 went bankrupt), but now I am trying to play the 5, but I might buy some the 2 since I dunno what I did with it.
