I thought this deserved to be mentioned in a post of its own. gog.com are currently doing a huge sale which, according to their website, touches more than 700 games and discounts up to 90%.
Their games library is certainly impressive, and they have a few games currently on sale that deserve a special mention (some of them are not even available on Steam):
- Neverwinter Nights Diamond
- Neverwinter Nights 2 Complete
- Rayman 3
- Baldur’s Gate II Complete
- Planescape: Torment
- The Longest Journey
- Icewind Dale Complete
- Icewind Dale 2 Complete
Make sure to check out the sale because you are likely to find something cool on discount right now. Plus, if you check in for 7 days on their website while the sale is on, you will get a free copy of The Witcher 2 and The Gamers: Director’s Cut.
[Update] Note that this is not a collection of videos on how to reach all of these locations. There are already plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it, so I didn’t really feel like I was adding anything interesting.
I decided to start a new series of image posts on Guild Wars 2. I normally don’t play MMORPGs as I prefer jRPGs much more, but Guild Wars 2 is an exception: perhaps it’s because it doesn’t have a monthly fee, which makes it more appealing to players like me, or perhaps it’s his focus on collaboration, I am not sure, but there is something in this game that is making it much more enjoyable than World of Warcraft has been for me during my (very short) test run.
In this game, there is something called Vistas, which are basically difficult-to-reach locations in the map, usually accessible after a more or less long jumping puzzle. They are basically platforming sections in a MMORPG. If you manage to reach one of them (signalled by a flag with a specific symbol on it), you can trigger a short cinematic sequence in which the camera shows all the surrounding areas (similar to what happens in Assassin’s Creed, just to give you an example).
Some of them are very, very nice to look at, so I’ve decided to capture the screenshots for all the vistas in the game (based on the last moment of the cinematic sequence, which is usually the most picturesque), grouped by area. Let’s start off this series with the vistas found in the Brisban Wildlands.
