I've heard that Fez is a decent game. Anyone play it? It is 9.99 on GOG.com, but I'll probably wait for even more of a deal.

Great site that has lots of cool old games. I've been getting as much amusement out of these old games as I do a more modern one at fractions of the cost!

Anyways I love Ceasar three the mix of sand box and objectives is fun/challenging


I also recently discovered gog (last week... thank you, brother thegreekdog). I purchased Colonization.

HoMM2 I played so much out of back in the day. I also had 3 and 4, but 2 I probably liked the most. But I think 4 did have the nice mechanic of having creatures roam the world without an adventurer, which was nice.

Might and Magic 6 and 7 (not Heroes) are my all-time favorite RPGs, above even Baldur's Gate (which is second).

Today (maybe only today) Amazon is having a digital download (Steam DRM) sale for Bioshock and Bioshock 2, and Bioshock Infinite.

The first 2 older titles you can get in a downloadable bundle for $5.00 :

Bioshock Infinite is discounted to $35.00 (from $60.00), but I probably will wait for a better deal on that after it has been out for longer.

This has been on the news for a couple of days, but thought I would post it on our Off Topics: Nintendo grabs money, control from fans promoting its games on Youtube

In what's sure to be one of its most unpopular moves in recent memory, Nintendo has decided to claim ownership over many popular YouTube videos featuring its games. Specifically, they've targeted “Let's Play” videos, where online personalities play games and offer running commentary.

These videos serve as a sort of mega-hybrid between a livestream, a game review, and a walkthrough. Nintendo has decided that because the videos lean so heavily on their products for the visual element that they fall under their copyright. As of now, the advertising revenue from these videos will go to Nintendo instead of the YouTube creator.

...

Nintendo is using Youtube's Content ID system to make this happen. The service searches Youtube for video or audio that matches a company's content, and then gives them control over that Youtube submission. “Identify user-uploaded videos comprised entirely OR partially of their content, and choose, in advance, what they want to happen when those videos are found,” the official page states. “Make money from them. Get stats on them. Or block them from YouTube altogether.”

...

The real question that nobody seems able to answer right now is why Nintendo is bothering to legally pursue fans who are spreading the word about their games. YouTube ad revenue is famously low, and the earnings from Nintendo videos are virtually nil by the standards of an international corporation.

Hmmm...I'm running Panzer General II on my XP system. Are you past XP? Perhaps that is the issue. Maybe try running in DosBox?

If not, there is a THRIVING online community for the game. Massive amounts of campaigns, scenarios, equipment compilations...all kinds of modifications. So I'll bet someone can help you out with it.
