GOG

GOG is currently having a sale if you guys are looking for any older stuff. I find that usually GOG games are far better optimized for modern systems than the same game on Steam is.

While looking at the sale items, I stumbled across Morrowind (not on sale). Then I pressed a button.

Now I've done it...  :o

Yes, GOG is a great site especially for older games. I've bought a few there in the past.

I was actually pretty hesitant after I built my current PC back in 2014 to use the online sites and download games. I'd signed up with Steam for something years before but never used it until after I built this one. Actually, the only thing I'd bought online was the original Mount & Blade and only because you couldn't get it in a store at that point. Everything else I always bought a game package in a store.

Now I buy from Steam, GOG, Humble Bundle, etc. Can't remember the last game I bought in a store for PC. Getting tough to find any at this point.

As a side note, a great site to make sure you're getting the best deal possible for a game is: https://isthereanydeal.com/ Can even sign up for an account there and make a 'Waitlist' of games that you set a price figure for a notification if they go under a certain price.

Speaking of; I know you are chomping at the bit for M&B II as I am. Can't wait!

Heck, can you imagine private MP servers of this game? I'd live there. :)

OMG yes! Bannerlord and SC are the two games I'm really waiting for. Both announced and being worked on since 2012. And both also don't have an official release date yet (Squadron 42, the single player part is scheduled to come out next year barring no delays, but the MMO portion will take longer to finish). lol  They are all going to be absolute masterpieces, though.

I read the once a week Bannerlord dev updates on Steam and think "This looks awesome, but I want to know when it's going to be ready!"

Once those are released I will have no need for any other games!  ;D

I split off our posts on Blood & Gold and made a thread out of it.

The titles I was really happy to see on here was the Heroes of Might & Magic series (always loved that one) and a completely remastered Homeworld. HW came out about the time I started playing mmo's so I didn't get to dig in as deeply as I'd liked and  had always planned on going back to it. Hell, I think I may even have one of the expansions unopened in a box in my store room.

I saw "The Guild" 1 & 2 in there ..another great game from my past :)

So thanks again for the heads up on this site ..some good stuff here.

Yeah, and the best part is as Scrog said GOG makes the games so they run on modern PC's. Even if they're available on Steam or other places they don't always work on Win 10.
