Default Not an Ad, just wanted to rant about the website GOG.com - 03-09-2010, 12:53 AM

Just upgraded my mini 9 to a 64gb ssd, 2gb of ram and Windows 7. This little guy rocks. Jet black, and I feel a little more cool popping it out at Starbucks ...until I booted up Fallout...Anyway I wanted to game...so I poked around and I didn't want to go through no cd cracking games or boot legging games off the net. So I found this site gog.com This isn't an Ad...just some guy wanted to put a little info out there. I downloaded Fallout, Call to Power 2, Decent Freespace, and for FREE Steel Sky. Great prices all of the games I downloaded were $5.99. All games are VISTA and XP TESTED AND WORK!

They have a good selection of old school rpgs (my old favorites )

If anyone has any other sites like this put them out there...get support for these sites, they deserve it!

Wrong forum. This should really be in the windows gaming section.

Yeah, I thought about that too and I might post it there, but it's kind of mini 9 specific considering thats what I'm running. I wouldn't want to post in a general game forum and have a game not work for someone using a 10 or 12. Atleast this way I can say for sure it works on a mini 9.

But a good point none the less

I moved it anyway - if it works on a 9, it should work on any other Mini.

Come on...there are a lot of definitions for the word "rant". Here is the copy of Websters...note the red section and yes, I was pretty excited when I posted it...but I agree, it could also be used to, as they put it, scold vehemently

Main Entry: 1rant
Pronunciation: \ˈrant\
Function: verb
Etymology: obsolete Dutch ranten, randen
Date: 1601
intransitive verb 1 : to talk in a noisy, excited, or declamatory manner
2 : to scold vehementlytransitive verb : to utter in a bombastic declamatory fashion
— rant·er noun
— rant·ing·ly \ˈran-tiŋ-lē\ adverb

I've bought Sacrifice, Freespace 2 and Giants from GOG and I'm always tempted to buy a few more.
