    And things smash very satisfyingly, and its stuffed full of visual humour.

    Saw that the Stronghold collection is on sale at Gamersgate - The DRM is marked as "Other DRM" and a single review mentions that all the games are DRM free. Does anyone know if there's DRM involved, and if so, what type?

    I only got one key when I bought it, and while I haven't had time to download it yet, I'd assume it's a one-time key activation for a single one of the games, or maybe the collection as a whole.

    Gonna +1 that. Also, particularly good if you're a fan of time trials and leaderboards. It helps, but isn't necessary to enjoy the arcadiness of it.

    Also, Mirror's Edge as the Steam daily and Just Cause 2 as a weekend deal on Steam - you should buy both.
    Powered by Steam. And biscuits. I'm also a twit and dabble in creative writing.

    I kind of feel sorry for GOG when they add a game series to their shop.
    Do they release the whole series and include games which may be *ahem* subpar (Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness and Ultima IX) or do they only release the truly Good games and so leave gaps in their library? Either way someone is going to be complaining.

    Kinda don't understand why. It's a purchase. It's your choice whether you buy it. Why should they leave out games others might want just because you don't want them? It's a bit ridiculous to assume they wouldn't release all of them.

    I'd assume they intend to sell any old shit now they're just "GoG" and have dropped the "Good Old Games" concept.

    The moment Angel of Darkness appeared there they needed to be renamed to SoD anyway - why anyone would want to play that shite is beyond me...

    I have no problem with it, especially as user reviews should give all the info needed. It's just I have heard those, such as the guy above, who do take issue with it and was putting forward the counter-argument that completing a series is possibly better.

    But my point is that they really shouldn't have an issue with it. No one's making them buy or play it, and there's nothing they can do to make them not exist, often alongside the "good releases" in the list. Personally, I like Ultima IX. I get that people take issue with it because it's not an RPG, and it's not totally canonical. I get that. But it's still a decent game, now that all the bugs are patched out. Nothing groundbreaking, but good, nonetheless.

    And there's really no reason they should be offended by the fact that it's there.

    EDIT: Personally, I don't like Fallout 3. It turned a classic RPG into something that it just shouldn't be. I don't get offended when I see people selling Fallout 3.

    Yes but the internet.

    Couldn't think of where else to put this (and I can't create threads as I just registered on the forums)
    Well anyway, here are some Closed Beta keys for RaiderZ (I can't for the life of me remember even signing up for it or even hearing about the game before)
    CBTW31_NDAjMjAjMTIzYmEjOTQ
    CBTW31_OTIjZTlmMTUjMjAjMzQ

    On a bit of searching I did find TB had made a video on this (although I don't remember seeing that before either):

    Dishonored is 40€ at GMG, with the code DERHE-RRDER-RINGE.
    Does anyone knows a lower price than this for Mainland Europe? I checked many places, and smuggling is not worth it.
    Steam(shots), Imgur, Bak'laag, why do you forsake me?

    If you have someone to play with, buy it. The co-op is very fun.

    Greenmangaming supposed to be having The Journey Down Chapter 1 at 75% off for 24 hours starting in about 40 minutes. 10 for the first chapter may have been a little steep (judging by Wot John Thinks) but 2.50 may be a little more reasonable

    I got it in an Indie Royale bundle. For adventure game players, it's fantastic. Plenty of good humor and an interesting art style. However, for people that don't play adventure games, 3 hours of fixing an airplane in adventure game format with good humor might not be interesting enough.

    EDIT: Oh, and SpaceChem, Tiny and Big, Legend of Grimrock, Torchlight, the Geneforge Saga, and Darwinia are 50% off on GOG.com, this weekend only.

    Free Starvoid keys at fileplay.net/keys/. I'd hurry if you're interested, the link's been making its rounds.

    EDIT: It's the full game.

    For anyone considering making an account to nab a beta key, just a heads up they are all gone now.

    Raiderz keys:

    CBTW31_MiMyMCM1ZDAyMiM1Mg
    CBTW31_NjkjNWU0YmEjMjAjNDg

    I tried it out for an hour - not really my cup of tea but the action combat isn't bad for an MMO I guess.
