I think I put in something like 100 hours into Fallout 3 and still don't have all the achievements or finished all the expansions. So, if this game is in any way similar I won't be getting much done on my computer for a while.

So I bought and downloaded Beyond Good & Evil from GOG yesterday, but didn't try to play it until about 20 minutes ago. I don't know what's going on, but it seems like the game is having some serious compatibility issues with Windows 7. The textures were all fucked up, eyeballs were outside of people's heads, the plants would twitch and shit. I messed with the compatibility settings some and got it mostly working, but the combat screen is still a mess and glitches constantly. Any advice here? I've still got Stalker in my shopping cart but I don't wanna waste my money if I can't get some of these older xp games working on my computer.

That was a classic issue with vista, and apparently happens in w7 too.

Developers usually put out patches (there should be some for Beyond. Amazing game btw).

But sometimes the game just gets dropped and simply cant be played on newer systems.

There's a thread on that game on ign: BG&E PC problems with solutions. - IGN Boards

See if it's of any help

New operating systems are fun! STALKER seems to work fine. There usually a work around for every game with issues, just google 'game x' with 'windows 7' if you're ever unsure.

Seems I left out the TaleTale pack that contains every damn thing they've made for 34.99, buy it twice.

EDIT:I highlighted the...highlights, should make it easier.

The TellTale guys should be worshipped for what they did...

Does anyone know what happened to the Penny Arcade game? It was dumb but enbjoyable and quite addictive. Also, are there any other pc games with a simlar combat systrem (in the style of Final Fantsy or Kingdom Hearts. But not gay)

Just forced myself to close steam, I bought:

Rome: Total War Gold
Telltale Everything Pack
Painkiller: Black Edition
Lucasarts Adventure Bundle
Chains

The rest I either already had, talked myself out of or didn't care about.

I now have 150 games on steam, I need a clone.
