Is the game a lot better than its open beta from several years ago? I thought it was decent back then.

Yep, it actually got a lot better when they started the away missions. They're like old ST episodes.
Cool! One day, I will try it again. Maybe after I retire whenever that is if I "live long and prosper".

Apparently Payday 1 is free on Steam on Oct 16th for 24 hours.
Free to buy or play? http://store.steampowered.com/app/24240/ doesn't show it free for me.

Showing as 'Install' for me, and once I clicked through it now claims it's registered to my account. I think it's free to buy.
Oh, I see it too now. Thanks -- "Success!

PAYDAY™ The Heist is now registered to your account on Steam."

Ooh, perfect timing for my long weekend! I think I will try: Trine 2 and XCOM: EU. I already tried Payday 2 in its previous/last free weekend. Any others that I should try as free samplers?

10/16/2014 4:37 PM PDT: Dang, not many games to play due to my ancient machine and software. I am only interested in Don't Starve and Trine 2 then.

One thing I did find amusing is how fast the Marine runs. I think he could outpace the Quake guy.

You say that like its a bad thing...

Also really? This is the first game you played with acceleration?? That's kind of weird, by this time the Voodoo 3 was ruling supreme and Nvidia's TNT cards were quickly catching up, also Unreal was pretty much king of graphics and most games supported Glide or OpenGL. DirectX kind of sucked back then....

My first 3D card was a Voodoo2 back in.....1997, not sure when, probably late. I know the very first game I played it with was Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight. Back then you were hot **** if you had a Voodoo card. Gaming elite.

I remember going to Software etc. and just bragging about it to all the other store regulars, who were all hardcore PC gamers. Boy, those were the days.

Dark Forces II was the first game I played with 3D acceleration too, after months and months of playing it in software mode. I was blown away by how good it looked and how fast it ran.
For me, it was Quake 1 on my Diamond Monster 3D (3Dfx).

29. Aliens TC for DOOM... Oct 15, 2014, 19:28 Ant

I would definitely like a client to organize all my GoG games in a nice STEAM-like way.

I feel like getting back into Aliens TC for Doom 2. What a killer mod that was.
Uh, I am pretty sure it was for DOOM 1 only.

6. I actually played more! Oct 5, 2014, 16:55 Ant
 
I played more before the free weekend ended with another single player level. I still got dizzy. No capture the flag (CTF) multiplayer and frak death match (DM). The super long credits feature was cool to look. It even shared the original game! OK, no more ROTT. It is not bad, but better than the original one.

Played the shareware plenty, but it was dated before release.
Same here. I didn't get the full game. How did you like that one compared to this new one? It looks like I won't be playing more of this new one today since I only have an hour left and got things to do.

I just installed this yesterday out of boredom, in part because the copy of Wolfenstein I bought for the 360 won't get here till Monday (bought it after people here raved, bought it for the 360 because it was $30 whereas the PC was $60.)

Like Ant, I did the first level. And, for the first 5 minutes, I was disoriented because it's ridiculously fast.
But I wasn't hugely into it. For some reason it has a plot. And for some reason you can only hold one super weapon. Pick up a rocket launcher? Awesome. Pick up a double barrel shotgun? You're dropping the rocket launcher for it!

Plus the combat felt really weird. I don't know what it was. Maybe it was guys felt narrow, maybe it was weapons fire in the same spot every time, but it felt weird. And, for some reason, you can use iron sights, which zoom a bit but don't increase aim and take like 3 or 4 seconds to actually look down.

I'll play a bit more, but I wasn't in love. It seems like something that, after maybe 40 minutes, you've seen enough of. It was only the first level, but on Hard my health never fell below 55%.
Did you ever play its original ROTT?

I played the first level in single player. I liked it. It was better than the DOS version I played in college.

Great, now let's get Golden Axe, Magic Sword and Gain Ground modernized and released.

Then you can add T-Mek(!) and the vector graphic Star Wars and everything old will be new again!

We already have most of the top pinball tables available ... we just need those cabinet games.

RASTAN!!!!!
Yeah! I love its theme song! Golden Axe 1's too. So many good old games.

loved the original, i think it was possibly the first game that i played on a home console after first playing it in the arcade.

gauntlet first, then golden axe are probably my fav cabinet games of the 80's
They did remake Golden Axe for PS3 or something, but it sucked? I played its arcade and IBM PC DOS ports a lot!

Was trying to ignore all the positive Wasteland 2 talk, since I really don't need any more games... Failed...

Fortunately I don't have a joystick, so it should be easier to resist Elite: Dangerous, at least for a bit longer...
Neither do I with old and free games. I barely have time to surf the web and read Blue's News daily.
