I just wanted to let the Darkfall community know about some very good deals on some old games.

http://www.gog.com/en/promo/ubisoft_games

I see at least 4 games on there that I will be buying on this sale. In particular, the Might and Magic 6-pack looks like a great value. I like old RPGs.

For those who don't know, GOG.com is a site where you can buy old games digitally at low prices. I like it because there is no DRM. You can download an installer which you can use at any time. Your computer doesn't even need an internet connection to install the games. Very convenient. Some of the games aren't even that old, like the King's Bounty series.

They also seem to be running the best pre-order package for Witcher 2. Good site :D

settlers 2 is a very cool game to play in a lan, either 1v1 or 2v2. it s real time strategy which is more about building up a strong economy and expanding fast than fighting with soldiers which however is also part of game.

This game is all about pre- planning rather than micro your units in a fight.
The effects of bad resource management will show 1 hour later when you run out of fish for the mines for example, reducing efficiency.
Getting up new fish huts etc takes time, which is why you had to pre-plan everything right in the first place.

HOMM takes forever to play through and they are very similar in game-play. It's not much better to get six than one or two of them.

The Might and Magic 6-pack is not for the "Heroes" games. They are old RPG games, and the "Heroes" series is a spinoff of them.

In Might and Magic games you have a party of characters and you slog through areas or dungeons one block at a time in first-person view. Like most RPGs you have a main quest with tons of side quests, many of which involve puzzles. Combat is turn-based and you have a random loot system. Might and Magic 6 has a primitive 3D engine. I enjoyed Might and Magic 7 long ago, and I can't wait to try 1-6.

HOMM 1-3 are available individually.

I know, just didn't read it correctly. There's only 5 HMM.

I never really got into HoMM 5. Three is best in the series.

Agreed, though Tribes Of The East really isn't a bad effort that vastly improves 5.

I only bought Hammer of Fate, maybe I'll give ToTE a try then. Thanks.

Yeah HoF was 'almost' there, but the TOTE has better AI I feel and was a lot of fun.

The new goblin town is probably my favorite as well. I think you can get ToTE for pretty cheap on Steam.

Gog is a pretty fantastic site, good sale to take advantage of if you never played the M&M or HOMM series. I have to agree with 3 being the best, but 1 and 2 offered a lot of good times. If you never played it or noticed the similarities King's Bounty was the original Homm, fantastic gameplay there too.

I was really happy to get dirt cheap copies of master of magic and space quest to replace my long lost disks. I hope they are able to pick up a few more of the old Sierra On-Line games; Quest for Glory and the EGA version of Police Quest would be awesome.

All I bought was the Might and Magic pack, and HOMM 1. It was the only Heroes game I never played. I would have bought more, but I have too many games I have yet to play right now.

They really need to get a hassle-free version of Final Fantasy 7 & 8 on there which works ok with Vista / Win 7.
