Planescape Torment on GOG.com

GOG.com now offers online sales of Planescape Torment, Black Isle's 20th century Advanced Dungeons & Dragons-based RPG which is widely considered one of the finest games of its kind. The game has been updated to work under Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit) and like all of the good old games on GOG.com, it is free of digital rights management.

Actually, I just bought this. It also comes with the manual, the soundtrack, the script rewritten into an entire 300 page novel, and all the character portraits plus initial sketches from the entire game. And it all came in at 11MB/sec.

I'm impressed.

I still have a copy of this, and the guide. I think it's one of the greatest games ever made, on any platform. Truly amazing.

The first time I heard about it was when GreenMarine (remember him?) posted about it on his blog just after it was released. He described it as a game that was like D&D on acid so I went out the following week and bought a copy.

Just make sure you put lots of points into Wisdom and Intelligence, otherwise you'll miss many of the conversation options.

Charisma is helpful too. Though, what's great about PST is how they integrated skill checks into most of the dialogue/interactions as well so most skills are useful.

It's absolutely not required at all. The game is simply amazing.

It helps a bit, but it's nowhere as near as important as when playing Icewind Dale or Baldur's Gate.

God, I remember attempting to play BG2 for the first time, having not known a thing about DnD. Holy shit - on the one hand it was extremely fun, and on the other I had no idea WTF was going on, or what this whole THAC0 thing was.

That's how good BG2 was: It drug me, kicking and screaming, into DnD...

It helps a bit, but it's nowhere as near as important as when playing Icewind Dale or Baldur's Gate. The focus is more on the story and character interactions rather than the combat (which is sporadic and relatively easy).

Just make sure you put lots of points into Wisdom and Intelligence, otherwise you'll miss many of the conversation options.

WOTC sucks for not doing more to make games out of its IPs.

Might consider using this guide, with links. It has MUCH more than the how to Install on XP, before this GoG release.

Anything else is probably on Sorcerer's Palace.
 
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

Just to clarify, Ultima 7 didn't make use of any 3D processor. The 3D look was achieved with isometric tiles.

Man, that is tempting. Just too many games to play right now, maybe I can get back to it later.

The finest RPG there is. Everything else I've played after this game has been a disappointment. (with possible exception of BG2)

With high-res widescreen mods applied I actually think these old 2D classics look pretty damn good. I have been replaying Arcanum recently and at 1280x800 it looks rather spiffy and atmospheric, much more so than an early 3D game like Ultima VIII if you ask me.

As for Planescape it's actually the only old D&D game of this nature I do not own anymore, so I bought it immediately. Cool stuff.
