    This looks like quite an interesting and well developed game. $38 (27) is a hell of a deal too.

    Yes it's interesting.
    No, it's not well developed (netcode sucks).
    $38 for such an old game is really hell.

    why would i buy this when the Good Old Games version comes:
    > with no DRM
    > at a price of $9.99

    don't get me wrong, i love that they have done this, but where is the value?

    Really good, not the game, but the coming of Linux version of games.

    The GoG version is a WINDOWS version and you're buying it as such.

    Each time you do something along those lines you send a message to the studios and publishers that you actually WANT to buy WINDOWS titles.

    Seriously.

    I'm not going to twist people's arms to go and buy it (partly because I've a relationship with LGP (Indicated by the tag on my handle here...)) but in the same breath, I'd be disinclined to give the wrong message just because "it's cheaper".

    One of the things everyone has to realize is that as long as you keep equating what is a new title on Linux with "an old title", which might be the case on Windows, you're going to be waiting a LONG time for Linux specific titles unless they're indie stuff like Caster.

    Indie games is where it's at anyway, a lot of mainstream games are boring. Just the same old brown coloured shooters with a mediocre story line that cost ~30 for 10-15 hours of so called fun.
