    Errr…..certainly a good deal, and I’ve been meaning to pick up Sacred for a while, but are any of the others that good? Can’t say they were really on my radar as anything more than names. But, as always, thanks for pointing out a great RPG deal, even if not technically indie!

    Yeah, I serve multiple masters. 🙂 But since a lot of the folks here are fans of old-school RPGs, I thought I should point it out. Stonekeep is considered a lesser classic, the others are a bit more obscure.

    Aelfric, I can offer a second vote for Sacred. Tons of very well done Diablo-style gameplay in a really massive world.

    Jay, I was wondering if you’ve found playing the older games stable on newer systems? I recently fired up System Shock 2 and had a devil of a time getting it stable on a dual core Vista system until I found a little app that forced it to run on only one processor. Does something as old as Stonekeep really run well?

  • Rampant Coyote said,

    I confess I haven’t played a *lot* of Stonekeep on my machine… and there’s no guarantee of how stable it was to begin with 😉 But I have had zero problems with it under GOG.COM’s configuration.

    I’ve had a little bit more trouble getting Septerra Core and Gothic 1 running correctly. The forums at gog.com were helpful there – but once I got them running, they’ve run just fine. Again – I’ve not had time to play them *a lot* – but a couple of hours of “getting a feel for ’em” resulted in no issues.

    Beyond that — I had problems installing Vampire the Masquerade: Redemption from my original install discs, but I doubt you’d have that problem from gog.com. DOSBox is my friend for the much older games, but there are a couple of old Windows 95 games that I’ve had a bear of a time with. Like Magic: The Gathering.

    Thanks for the tip, I just scored Septera and Stonekeep for a little over $5! I will throw in a good word for Sacred, it is among the best action RPG’s I have played to date.

    I am glad to hear Stonekeep is working well for you, I owned stonekeep once before, but gave it to a friend because his computer was the only one we could get it to work on. Fingers crossed I’ll get to play it on my own computer this time. 🙂
