To celebrate their 1 year anniversary, GoG is having a buy one get one free sale on select games.

http://www.gog.com/en/page/1year_promo

I like GoG so I think I'm going to buy something... but I'm not sure what.

Stonekeep always looked interesting to me, but I don't know what else to get it with it.

Anyone have any recommendations from that list?

Giants: Citizen Kabuto was a really fun game. Really wish that game had succeeded because the multiplayer was so freaking fun. I think the team behind that also did the Armed and Dangerous game which has a very similar style of humor.

Excellent! I've wanted to buy Fallout 2 for a while but kind of wanted a digital version of Fallout 1 as well (but I already own it on CD). Now I sort of have an excuse... I'll get Fallout 1 for free :)

This deal is still going.

I just noticed that you can buy two games and get two more free.

I think I'm going to grab Stone Keep, Lionheart, Sacrifice and Giants. Total is $11.98. :)

That's a hell of a deal for some great games with good support and no DRM.

EDIT: Sweet, I didn't know GoG accepted paypal. I have like $60 in my account that I've been trying to use. :D

I played the game way back when it came out. I think it either came with a graphics card or I had a demo. I didn't really get into it at the time but for $3... why not? :p

Yeah, I think it came with the Geforce 4400 or something... been a long time so I have no idea... might have been the GF 2 series even lol... long time ago.

It was either the Geforce 2 or Geforce 3. I can't remember. :p

I know it was one of the most high-tech games available when it was released due to all the bump mapping.

Must have been the 2 then, because I definitely remember getting a second version after I got the Geforce card and it looked better than the original release I was playing on my Voodoo 3300 lol.

Thinking about getting Freespace 2 and Kabuto...

So how does this work? You have to buy the game first after that you'll get another one free?

Giants that was enhanced for Geforce 3 is awesome. There's patch somewhere that adds all assets and is playable with current cards. There's a thread somewhere about it here. Not sure if links still works after few years.

If I remember right I did lol... was so long ago and it ran Giants like garbage basically. Then I got the Geforce 2 and I was like "WHOAZ WTFZ!!!!!" and my mind was BLOWN AWAY lol. I loved the freaking multiplayer in it... it was a mixture of third person shooter, strategy, and just running around eating people and upgrading as the Giant itself... was freaking fun and I wish somebody would remake it lol.

The only game on that site I don't own and need is Arx Fatalis... I guess I should get Overseer at some point as well, but I'm not in a hurry as I remember it being the lamer of the Tex Murphy games.

The rest... meh. Maybe there are some hidden gems I don't own that are not those two, but I don't know about them as of now.

This site has some of the updates but most of the important links are broken...

Anyone know where else to get all the necessary patches and updates for this game?
