Wasteland 1 on GOG.com

GOG.com announces the release of a "slightly updated" edition of Wasteland 1, the classic post-apocalyptic RPG. Here's the blast from the past:

Back in 1988 Wasteland 1 - The Original Classic (or just Wasteland back then) took the fresh memory of living in constant fear during the Cold War, reached for the aesthetics of the Mad Max movies, added solid cRPG mechanics, and offered gamers an experience that would soon inspire a whole gaming sub-genre. Long before Mr. Ron Perlman announced to the world that "war never changes" in the iconic opening sequence to Fallout, the post-apocalyptic grim future was a vision already present and persistent in the minds of gamers. That was mostly because of Wasteland. The open-ended free-roam gameplay, paired with incredibly rich and suggestive setting made a lasting impression on everyone who dared to visit the nuclear desert. With challenging difficulty level and great variety of NPCs, quests, and locations, this fantastic title is still a blast to play!

As a Wasteland 2 backer, I chose to redeem my WL2 GOG. I think it's pretty damn awesome that they were able to do this and update the game to add the text and voice over, however, it's not without its problems. It runs full screen, and seems to stretched even though I have my GPU set to preserve aspect ratio of full screen games. Pressing ALT-Enter will switch to windowed mode, but it doesn't release control of the mouse. I've tried pressing ALT-TAB, but I the only way I can get it to release the mouse is to go full screen and back to windowed. In full screen the mouse is crazy sensitive, but not as bad windowed. I also don't like that it disables Aero in windowed mode. I haven't had any problems with it yet, but I haven't played it for very long.

I have played the original in DOSBox without problems, and it runs fine windowed without disabling Aero themes.
