    Saw it this morning on Ultima Aiera and will be picking up all of the rest I don't have. One less reasons to keep a USB floppy drive around.

    Every person reading this should at least get Ultima VII and the expansions and play it. It's $2.99.

    And if you have the Stygian Abyss expansion, you should pick up VI. Actually you should play IV through VII.

    Hmm, tempted to purchase. I don't want to cut into my UO time though meow.
    Actually since it is a half off sale I'll probably get a few and save them for rainy uo days.

    This is tempting but unfortunately i have too many games taking up space and my time. I even have games i purchased but never downloaded yet. Looks like a good play though.

    $2.99....hmmm.... I'd say that equates to washing the dishes for one night. No woman would argue with that. And she'll feel good about it!

    If you get 7 and 8, be sure to try Exult and Pentagram. (Don't feel like fishing up the links right now. Pretend I gave them and google them.)

    I wish all UO players today would at least try to play the original game that led to our world.... the shock and awe would be refreshing!
    Tel the wife to come try it with you... and offer to help her load the dishwasher a few days this week. A few smooches wouldnt hurt too. Give her the line... "honey wana beat me in a game??"

    I have re-purchased a lot of my favorite games through GOG.

    It's worth it not having to deal with floppies, and not having to deal with copy protection. When GOG first started and it came out that they were going to release games without copy protection, I didn't think any companies would sign on, but there have been a lot of companies who did.

    Wing Commander 3 and 4 come with the Brady Games guides btw.

    My gf at the time loved Ultima VII.

    For UO fans, VII offers a lot:

    There are things I'd like to see in UO in U7.

    And given that for $2.99 you get Ultima 7 and it's expansion, and Ultima 7 part 2 and it's expansion, it's hard to beat. Part 2 is especially good for those who want to know more about Ophidians.
