All the GOG versions ran just fine on Windows 7, although I think that was mostly just because the first two ran in DOSbox.
The first two had windows executables for them as well. And they work fine in 7 and 8.

Calling these guys hackers, or even referring to them as skilled in any way, is a bit of a stretch.
Pretty much. They're nothing but script kiddies using automated tools, which is about the same a 5 year old being able to push the big shiny button on their playskool "it makes noise" go-go car.

As of a few minutes ago you could still buy a Steam key from Gamefly for 9.99-20% code GFDJAN20. I got mine and activated on Steam no problem.
Nicely done, just grabbed a copy myself.

Annual Pass - if they offered this at a rate of $5 a month, they might actually clog the drain of lost subscriptions.
Hell that's what I'm paying for my STO gold sub, there was a one day special on oh 6 months ago or something. I'd pay the same for WOW, not sure if I'm interested in playing the new expansion though I do get the itch every now and then. Especially since a few of my friends who live in the asshole of nowhere US and Canada, and overseas have started playing again.

Yeah they put it right on toothpaste that you should not swallow it. Fluoride is indeed dangerous and lethal if you get too much in your system. It's a bio-accumulative toxin.

And so is iodized salt. But without iodine(an essential trace element) you get sicker than a dog. And too much of it, you get sicker than a dog.

Looks like Klingon Academy with all the features in it. And to be honest, I loved KA.

PC Gaming certainly died at retail. 2002-2004 working at Gamestop I watched PC games go from multiple walls, to a single wall, to a single shelf, and finally to a small shelf shared with console games from previous generations. Some stores didn't carry them at all. I haven't stepped into a Gamestop in nearly a decade so I don't know what they currently have but it doesn't matter since Steam thankfully took over that business.
I do remember that, but one of the big things was that companies didn't see any short-term profit in it. Plus right around that time I was switching to digital downloads myself--probably the biggest thing that got me was a copy of HL2 with my ATI card. The last time I went to a game retailer to buy a physical copy of a game would have been the midnight release of the burning crusade.

And really, the stores at least in Canada priced themselves out of the market. Since I was able to order games from the US minus $10-30 depending. Hell, I remember seeing a copy of Independence War 2 for $89 up here and it was $49 in the US, that was in 2001ish.

The death of PC gaming knows no bounds.
I've been hearing about the death of PC gaming back when I started working in a retail store in '94. Every year or so, PC gaming is dying...dying...dying but it never seems to happen. Rather it keeps getting better, and stronger.

I want you Steam fans telling me why the games various community flourished in good ol' days but not now? Then it came lots of new mods, maps, games modes etc, just because game developers allowed it. Now it's really not much of that.
Look at last sentence, then previous sentence. You've answered your own question.

Hey, can everyone tell me now to freeload more, due to people wanting to put ads and make money off of thing I want to watch but not pay for.
Until advertisers stop being: Obnoxious, ensure their ads aren't malware laced, and stop autoplaying every time I open a page, and stop trying to track me all over the internet. They can shove them up their backside.

They're their own worst enemy, and have no one to blame but themselves for people blocking ads.

Ah...you're talking about the NYT article I see. Well I'm sure not going to be that someone, but I'm sure the author of the story can find all his desires in a snuggle-bunnie outfit.

And the few that start political unrests get political re-education in camps as soon as they raise their heads. China is very much in control of everything, that's a lesson they learned from the Tianamen Revolt. React as soon as possible and as ruthless as possible to prevent another Tianamen incident.
Not really. You need to go spend some time at one of their universities to see exactly how much control they have. Hell the last time they tried to wipe out a fishing village, they had to back down after the international media got wind of it. And that was after trying to starve the 10k or so people out by cutting off all supplies in or out.

They have control, just not as much control as you might think. Not even among the peasant class(aka dirt farmers).

China has leadership that restricts its population's choices and uses media control to help it remain in power.

But China isn't stupid. People who say things like that learn hard lessons.
China is stupid. Here's the key reason why: 70% of their current generation has no family prospects, no future life prospects due to the "one child" policy. That means a large swath of their population is going to see one of two things, either a war with them as cannon fodder--or massive civil unrest because they have no future prospects.

Has anything china done worse than rounding up all the native americans that were left after we slaughtered them all for jesus because this was the new promised land and stuffed them onto reservations?
Yes, you just need to go browse their history. Key things include the mass slaughter of tibetan citizens and the cultural revolution come to the top of my head. You're only looking for 10 to 30 million depending on the figures, and that was in the last 70-80 years.

Thanks for pointing that out. I picked up two copies. One for my niece and one for me. For me it was like buy one get one free since my niece had just asked me about it the other day.
Yep, I grabbed one for myself and my sister. She's already soaked in 6 hours, and hasn't made it to the coronation yet. My best run so far ended up with my princess being poisoned and dying.

Exactly. Evil Steam, right? And this Prime Evil GOG! Giving away the Fallout games, that I bought for about $90 a piece (import back in the day). This is outrageous! GOG is what is wrong with pc games these days! People won't buy pc games anymore, and it's GOG to be blamed for it.

Hah. I remember paying $74 here in Canada for Fallout, and that was back when I just started working in IT.
