OOOH Thankyou thankyou thankyou! I’ll be spending a bit of dosh tonight I think :D Wing commander games check, syndicate check, theme hospital? Check check!! Goddamn there’s some epic games in there for next to nothing :)

 

Sweet, just got Wing Commander 3 & 4, Magic Carpet and Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri

 

Unfortunately, GoG’s idea of Vista/7 compatability is to release the inferior DOS version of Dungeon Keeper and say “run it in DOSBox”. No thanks.

Good man! I think I’ll get alpha centauri just to say i’ve got it! Then play it… then play it some more *loses sleep for 4 days*

 

nacimota,

That’s not so bad though. Technically it does support Vista/7 (via an emulator), plus it also means it’ll work on OS X and Linux, which in my opinion is far more beneficial in the long run.

 

ElectroTyrian,

The DOS version is lower resolution and does not support the later expansion packs, among other things. The Win95 version is preferable by far, if you can actually get the damn thing to work.
