15. Re: GameTap Jun 3, 2008, 13:57 Deathbishop
Baldur's Gate (or Baldur's Gate 2 for that matter) were never removed from the service. There were a number of titles that were though (some EA stuff like Ultima for example). The bitching was due to them just taking it away without telling the subscribers (which they say will not happen again).

It's a nice service and for only 10 bucks, I don't see how people don't see it as a bargin. Yea, you don't 'technically' own the game because once you stop subscribing to Gametap, there go the games but again for the price to play upwards of almost 1000 title spanning multiple platforms, I think it's a good deal. They've made alot of older titles work with Windows XP and some are just classics.

Deus Ex
Baldur's Gate 1 and 2
Icewind Dale 1 and 2
Planetscape Torment
Beyond Good and Evil
Civilization IV
Alpha Centauri
Far Cry

It aint Steam, but I don't think that's what it's trying to be. It's a subscription service.
