    So this is in beta, but it's easy as hell to get in on it.

    The beta perk is buy one game, get another from Interplay, free!

    GOG.com Teaser

    DRM free, download as many times as you like, prices start at $5.99 and the best thing?


    All work on XP & Vista.

    Selection is pretty small, but there are a lot of gems on there already, so get going! Gooooo!

    Well Fallout 2, Toca and Colin Mcrae are all pretty cool. The nice surprise there is MDK. That game gave me fits on the PS1, but I was a glutton for punishment and loved every second of it.

    PC as well, according to GOG, but I think it's generally considered the better of the two.

    I see they have Descent which is good, but I would be much more inclined to start buying from them when they get the catalog of old games from Lucas Arts from back when Lucas Arts did not suck.

    MDK2 is pretty fun, I played it on PC and ... I ... think I beat it? I honestly don't remember. I either beat it or got frustrated at some jumping puzzles and told it to piss off. One of the two.

    Giants was hella funny but buggy as all get out and not actually much fun to play. I doubt these have been patched and fixed beyond what was originally available, either, but who knows?

    I'll have to check this out when I get home from work.

    Six bucks is cheap as free, almost. And while it's BOGOF, you can bet your ass I'll bite :D

    All of those games are truly classics. Too bad I have all of them from way back.

    I may keep an eye on that. If they put up Carmageddon 1 +2 I may have to get that...

    Everyone will buy Descent at once.

    I would, but I have it already.

    I was playing Giants at an insane resolution and having a generally marvellous time last night. Sooooo good.
