I played Eador: Masters of the Broken World - my Steam library says I made it 71 minutes before ditching it and uninstalling. If I remember right, I hated the combat.

Sounds about right to me.

I believe I had a technical issue that stopped me from even getting that far, without any urge to bother troubleshooting it very far.

That was the first game, Genesis, which is the one for free, and probably a bad game to be given away free unless they fixed that particular issue.  The second game was basically a remake of that without the hardware problems.

Hmm...I think you're right there, Eador: Really Long Name is in my Steam pile with 0 played on it, so I must've played the original on gog at some point.

The GOG Summer Sale is on. Free copy of Rebel Galaxy with your first purchase.

And GOG Connect actually imported two games from Steam into GOG for me, that's a first.

Oh, hello:

Price: € 8.89

Travelers looking for the authentic Diablo experience can play the game as it was in 1996, with period-appropriate 20 FPS SVGA graphics, and the ability to matchmake through the classic version of Blizzard’s Battle.net® online-gaming service.
For those wanting something a bit more modern, Blizzard and GOG.COM have collaborated on an updated version of the game tuned for today’s gaming PCs, which includes out-of-the-box Windows 10 compatibility, a host of bug fixes and high-resolution support.

Looks like more Blizzard games are coming to the platform ("Blizzard Entertainment and GOG.COM have teamed up to rerelease select classic Blizzard games, beginning with Diablo®").

Gog is currently strugling a little bit.
More info will come 21th March when CD Projekt finances will be published and board will show their plans.

They killed off the anti-regional pricing - Diablo is $15 for us Aussies. I was disappointed as I'd gravitated towards GOG over Steam.

I wonder if it was hurting them badly.

Since there were regions with over 30% difference in price which they paid out of their own pocket, I'd wager that it hurt them quite bad if they were too successful in those regions.

They said that returns from their own pocket were in range 12% to 37%.

Picked up Diablo if for no other reason than to support them eventually doing Diablo II. It's functional and a decent time-waster. There's some QOL issues I'd forgotten about like how hard it is to spot loot on the ground a lot of the time. Also most loot doesn't change your character's appearance. I'm getting $10 worth of entertainment out of it though.

It's at A$13.79 which seems below current currency conversion, what's the problem here?

It was originally showing as $15. It dropped within 12 hours.

Australia constantly gets hit with regional gouging - anything is going to set my radar off, justified or not.

Warcraft 1 and 2 are out now, also.  Kind of cool since as far as I know, Warcraft 1 hasn't been for sale on a digital platform before and I don't think was re-released ever, so if you didn't get the original game 25 years ago then it was kind of hard to find a legit copy.

edit: Oh, God, they didn't update Warcraft 1 at all... the controls are hilariously bad.  There is no right click to move, no building queue, if a unit gets attacked off screen there is no callout and they don't defend themselves, they just die. Maximum group size is four units, and you can't drag select or assign them to control groups, you have to shift click every time you want to select more than one unit.  Building units takes forever, movement speed is super slow, and vision range is about three tiles.  This is painful to play but kind of amazing at the same time.

Yeah, went through that trash all of one time, back in the 90s. You'd have to pay me a lot to try it again, especially with no remaster.

Which begs the question - why would they even bother re-releasing something that's clearly garbage, with no QoL improvements or anything. Say what you will about Final Fantasy 7, but that's how you do a remaster.

You mean announce a game, announce that it's going to be 3 games, then still fail to deliver checks notes 4 years later?

I think people from Blizzard had said at various times that part of why they were never too eager to re-release the first couple WC games is because they simply don't hold up.

Even if they made a bunch of QoL improvements, the game still probably wouldn't really be worth playing as anything other than a historical reference. Make too many changes and then you don't even get that out of it.

And then they will add in a bunch of the crap that has dragged down the last 2 or 3.  I fully expect it to be "Final Fantasy 7!  With all the stuff from Final Fantasy 15 that you loved so much!!"

I am one of the shameless around here who loved FF7.  Finished it twice, could totally see myself going back and doing it again.  I have no expectations for an eventual remake.

Agreed, as a fellow FF7 fan. A remake using the old school combat/gameplay but with modern graphics and voiceovers would excite me. A game that plays like 15 (or 13) with the 7 story does not.

I basically want exactly what you suggest.  A comprehensive upgrade of the engine and graphics, but leave everything else alone.  Don't even really want the voiceovers, or would at least want to turn them off.

I'd leave Japanese voiceovers on, but I accept that most people would want English ones.

I do not understand a lick of Japanese, but would almost prefer that with English subtitles.  Unless the English voices are perfect, which is rare enough.
