Good Old Games Update

Well, I got my Beta Key to the new retro gaming website Good Old Games about two weeks ago, but I hadn't done anything with it other than register and look at the catalog of games. I didn't think the Beta access meant much other than the ability to buy these old games that have been brought up into XP/Vista compatibility a little bit earlier than everybody else... until the crafty bastards sent me a "buy one get one free" offer that expires at the end of the weekend. Don't get me wrong, I was always planning on getting Fallout 1 and 2 for $5.99 a piece... as well as Jagged Alliance 2: Unfinished Business... and maybe trying a couple of others that I either missed or had forgotten about, such as Giants: Citizen Kabuto or Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising... however, I was in no particular hurry, since I have plenty of games on my "to play" list right now... but a free game.

Suffice it to say that Fallout and Jagged Alliance 2: Unfinished Business have been purchased, and I'll let you know how it all works out once I take them for a spin.
