What's in my GOG.com Game Library - 87 Old & New Classics!

Here is a peek at my GOG.com digital game library!


I'm surprised at how many comments on the video from people who didn't know about GOG.com!! If my video will help spread the awesomeness of that site, my job here is done.

YES! An excellent PSA.

Descent 2 and Forsaken are games I bust out every couple of years and have a blast replaying.

Forsaken? I consider myself a pretty big PC game (and AMIGA ) expert, but are you talking about the Akklaim multiplayer game?

Yah, I played it years ago on the N64. A buddy of mine and I played the multiplayer to death. Underrated game.

What happened to Anachronox- Daikatana.

Ion Storm was in the process of imploding over what happened with the debacle that was Daikatana and unfortunately the very small frugal spending team working on Anarchronox was pretty much thrown out on the street without notice, they took the code base that they had, compiled it and shipped it as is. The game didn't come with a manual, was almost impossible to find in store and had no support whatsoever- nor was it complete when it shipped.

A couple of the devs, one in particular, spent their spare time finishing/fixing the game over the course of a couple of years. The game was fairly unplayable with how it was shipped, had no press support *at all*, had no publisher support and looked downright archaic when it launched- Quake 3 was dated by that point.

One of my all time favorite games, I didn't have to look any of this up, I was absolutely livid that somehow the Anachronox boys were lumped in with the Daikatana team when they were much, much closer to the Deus EX team.

This is surprising to read. I remember the Anachronox box being huge and rather unique (European version) and the game being fairly polished all things considered. Every RPG at that point had bugs galore, after all. I reviewed it at the time and completed it too - fun game!
