Yay, always wanted this. I already have Baldur's Gate on DVD, and so this is one I've wanted a long time.
Rather amusingly for the guys on this forum, GOG say on their header that it's the second-most requested game on GOG - the first being System Shock II. I would be SO happy if they got that!

They should have the PC versions of Mortal Kombat 1-3 for $5.99. I would buy that.
Bad habit. I've fixed post #509 to remove all evidence of my insanity.
Bah. Planescape's nice and all, but I already own it. SO WHERE ICEWIND DALE, GOG? I WANT IT AND THE EXPANSION, OR I'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO FORGIVE FOR CRAZY CLOSE STUNT!
Nah, just kidding Gog. I could never hate you for long.
I gots my Icewind Dale 1 & 2 collection sitting pretty in the box with the soundtrack CD, and the map poster, and oh... it just feels so good.
I might even play the games past their opening screens some day!
If you don't, then send it to me. At least I'll appreciate what I've got.
hmmm... weird, I just got the email today.
You're not the only one who got that email late.
In fact, I posted a message to GOG regarding it.
You should do the same.
yeah, what an insult. to the barricades.
I wasn't worried about it, Getting it day one isn't a priority for me even if it wasn't Torment.
I'll always be able to buy it down the road, since they'll never unexpectedly shut down the site. That would never happen.
The latest release on GOG is the complete Icewind Dale. I've never played it, although I've heard good things about it. Can anyone say how it compares to other high-quality RPGs such as Baldur's Gate?
Icewind Dale, in my mind, was always the superior dungeon crawl between it and Baldur's Gate. It reminds me of rogue-like games except with lots of pretty colors.
Damn, I kinda knew it was coming out today and forgot to put cash on my card for it.
I guess the question now is, what's next? BG2? NWN? ToEE?
\/ YEAHHHH! ICEWIND DALE!
...figures it comes out right after I buy Blood, Arcanum, and Psychonauts. Way to go GOG. Now I've got too much to play.
And is it just me, or is Blood the hardest FPS that's ever been made? Usually I throw the switch to the highest difficulty setting and roll on. With Blood, I've got it set to the second lowest, and it's still handing my ass to me. Evil, evil game. Fun though.
Edit: Hey, I'm talking about Blood in the 666th post. That is fucking bad as shit.

yeah blood is epix hard, I usually give up after a couple of hours of the constant, oppressive macabre atmosphere (that isn't much helped by the grainy splattercore graphics). I'll have to give it another run through - I only have the shareware, I should really grab the full deal
Blood is difficult but fair. You will die a lot, particularly because of the sheer number of hitscan enemies (cultists nearly always have a Thompson or shotgun) but you never feel overwhelmed and there aren't half as many irritating enemies like Shadow Warrior. Shadow Warrior basically deluges you in highly visible ninjas all carrying machine guns that can take off 25hp in a few seconds from a mile away, and that's before they break out the rocket launchers.
sounds hellish. is that even worth playing or do you have to cheese the whole game?
I'd totally send it to you Renz, but it looks kinda nice sitting next to my Neverwinter Gold box. Wouldn't want to separate them!
