The folks at Good Old Games
have added Spellforce Platinum
and Capitalism 2
($9.99 each) to their online library. Spellforce Platinum
contains the original game plus two expansion packs for all the RPG/RTS goodness you need without having to plunk down $50 for Dawn of War II
while Capitalism 2
allows you to start your own business and pray that you're not impacted by a ginormous economic recession caused by the greed of a few.
I finally tried out GOG last week and the process of buy and downloading a game couldn't have been simpler. Highly recommended if you're looking for some old games on the cheap. It's also worth noting that they've got a special announcement coming tomorrow. I'm not sure what it is but check back tomorrow for the full scoop (crossing fingers for classic Lucasarts games).
Spellforce Platinum - $9.99
Spellforce Platinum consists of the main game and both expansions - The Breath of Winter and Shadow of the Phoenix. The game is set in a fantasy world ruined by a failed magical ritual. Your task is to create your hero - an avatar who will lead your armies - and embark on a journey to save the world. The game is a mixture of RPG and RTS, but sometimes you will be allowed a break from commanding your troops and enjoy a bit of relaxing hack-n-slash action. All this packed into beautiful visuals for your gaming pleasure.
Capitalism 2 - $9.99
Capitalism 2 offers quite a few improvements over its predecessor. The first thing you'll notice is the updated 3D-like graphics. Although playing a business game may seem daunting, Capitalism 2's steady learning curve and intuitive user interface make this task feel like more fun than REAL business management. You warm up and learn the ropes in the Entrepreneur Campaign, then spread your wings and test your mettle in the Capitalist Campaign, with specific scenarios to exploit and goals to attain. And last but not least, you can show your friends who's boss in the game's multiplayer mode.
