GOG's summer sale started today. Lots of flash deals, daily deals, and other deals. Thinking about picking up some fun older stuff, or lots of cool new stuff...

Looks like they are getting in just before the Steam sale. :)

What are you thinking about picking up?

I was thinking about Ether One, thought it looked interesting. I've been meaning to pick up Beyond Good & Evil for PC, and heard that the GoG file is better supported than the Steam version (I have no idea if that's true or not).

Beyond Good & Evil is a great game (in case you never played it before).

I have, and I agree! I mostly just wanted access to play it on PC, rather than hook up my Xbox 360 or Wii.

The Roller Coaster Tycoon deal is great. I have 1 & 2 on CD but to get them digitally... it's tempting.

So many great deals here. The D&D masterset is great too, if you don't already have it(which I do).

Considering the Thief pack...but worried the graphics will hold me back on that style of FPS/stealth game. Especially after I have the new one. Some games graphics don't matter, some games they do...

Eh... I got it too, I'm a sucker for a good deal lol. Plus, I like the idea of expanding my digital collection outside of Steam.

It is hard to go back and play some 3D games with dated graphics. Much easier to revisit 2D games this way. The Thief games are solid, though, if you can look beyond graphics.

Picked up Ether One, and Omikron: Nomad Soul (talk about awesomely dated 3D graphics), and Magrunner is free right now! Always wanted to try that Portal-esque game out. I didn't realize that Omikron was from David Cage, of Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit fame. Anxious to dig into that.

I agree some games are hard to go back to now. Some are timeless, but many from the PS era haven't aged well.

Minor correction, but it was Might and Magic II (not III) that I played on Sega. And it was one of the I'm looking forwarding to trying some of these others. I installed an emulator on my phone and was playing 2 again and it was still quite playable for me. 2D graphics are much easier to handle than bad 3D graphics.
