Activision Classics getting added to GOG.com
« on: 28 Jan 2010, 11:12 »

Apparently this is happening over the next few weeks and the ones that were just added are 2 of my favorite PC games of all time.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

Arcanum

Now admittedly, Arcanum, even fully patched, is one of the buggiest things you will ever play but it's oh so good.

Gabriel Knight is voiced by Tim Curry.

I seriously wanna know what else is coming over cause fuck yeah!

was it Sierra who made Return To Krondor?

I liked that game back in the day.

Hopefully they'll add Hunter Hunted. It was a weird little two-player platform action game. Nobody loved it but me.

My favourite King's Quest game was VII, the one nobody else likes for some reason. 

I actually have the music from the town of Falderal saved on my ipod, it never fails to cheer me right up.

My father still has the original CD lying around. I should prbably try it, he's played it more than ten times or something.

And, well, whenever someone mentions Arcanum, somebody else cums over their keyboard, so I'll have to check that out as well.

I bought that pack. So damn good.

Vampire the Masquerade: Redemption just got added today. It's no Bloodlines, but it's still a pretty damn fun game.

Also changing the thread title because the this is technically the Month of Activision classics and not Sierra.

And for people who really enjoy dying.

Interstate '76 was one of my favorite games when I was younger. There was nothing like shooting your pistol through someone's window and hearing their horn blare for a few seconds as their car drifted to a stop.

Well, there you have it: King's Quest 4+5+6, this Thursday. But I don't know anything about it, myself.

I loved VII, though I never actually beat it.

Getting King's Quest as soon as possible.

ethics aside, all the old Sierra adventure games have been around on abandonware sites forever.  there is even a group of people who have remade the first two King's Quest games and the Hero's Quest games with new graphics.

you can find them here:

www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk

as well as a lot of recently-made homebrew adventure games that are substantially better than any King's Quest game (unless you like extremely arbitrary puzzles and complete lack of plot, in which case, yeah King's Quest are the best adventure games of all time).

Well, if it's abandonware, theres nothing really wrong with downloading it. However, I did download it like that with dosbox, and the sound was still off. So, I finally just got it on gog.com and it works great and is wonderful.

I'm strongly considering getting this:

I've heard many great things about this game over the years, but I've never played it. Now it's available for current versions of Windows.

Oh shit I remember that game. Yeah, it was interesting. Lots of creative ways to die. It was a lot like a weirder, quasi-Lovecraftian Prince of Persia.
