GOG is good site.

Yeah... for a while I was kinda ticked off, when they bought all these old titles that were already free (abandonware), as I'm pretty much into retro games... but they kept the cost low and are doing a pretty good job to make the games run on win (instead a DOS box) and weeding out bugs... so I made my peace with them, 5 to 10 bucks is not too much to spend once in a while...  :)


despict the fact it was full 2D.

I don't mind that at all... some of these old titles have really great storylines, and incredible depth... without overheating a laptop, too LOL

@Paeng glad we didn't lose you to fallout, I'd be at fault and probably be banned from this site  :'(  Agree 2D games some of the best and I still have manuals and cloth maps etc. but :

@kid1293 Morrowind and Oblivion beautiful games.

@QueryEverything , you got it covered.  Sorry but I doubt there will be wifi, there wasn't when article was published.  Took a quick look but didn't find it.  The oldest saved article I have is 1998.  They use to publish game tips and hints and even walkthroughs.  If we get to take hubbies we get to take extra games.  :)  I'm glad you thought ahead and bringing decks of cards, I will sure miss my magic card games.

@RedKetchup , I agree how annoying in Heroes4 to have lone enemy hero come take your mines & troop buildings and original maps there is always a portal for them to come through but I like graphics better, caravans, and more than one hero in the army, even nothing but heroes in the army.  When I got Heroes3 I found a lot I liked about that version also but missed taking one hero over to the enemy to take their mines and troop buildings. LOL

Lots of great games.

LOL
I remember a flight simulator I had that problem with. The plane was leaving the map - ZAP!
No chance to fly around. I had it later with some 'slowmo' but by then it was boring.

if i remember right that was some parameters you could pass to it to set the slowing speed from faster to slower.... a number you put in the command line.....

Nah, not so easy to get rid of me...  :D

Anyway, it's a welcome break, to get settled in a bit better with all the new things...  :)
