    Nah it is just a site to buy a downloadable copy of the game I have used them a few times plus you don;t have to input any credit card info to get this, you only have to make a free account.

    They belong to CDProject, who own the studio that made the Witcher games.
    They usually offer old games, patched to run on modern PC.
    All games are DRM free and usually come with a lot of bonus content.

    The DS version was so much win. I'm tempted to actually try this, but I try to limit my gaming on handhelds now.

    This is Good Old Games, I believe, and they're supposed to be pretty reliable.

    That's a nice deal, though the game's title is quite a mouthful.

    GOG is an incredible site. They have tons of older games and often have great deals on them. Better yet, they're all DRM free and are guaranteed to work on the OSes listed on the games' page. I really can't stress enough that you want to own games on GOG rather than any other service.

    Also, as mentioned before, they're owned by the same guys who make The Witcher series. They've even said that the revenue stream from GOG lets them do things like make the 2.0 update to The Witcher 2, which is a massive update everyone gets for free.

    Good old games (GOG) is 100% legit, they make deals directly with the publishers. They got a (a bit limited) deal with EA a few months ago for some great old Bullfrog and Origin games. I bought many games from them as they are a great (and in many cases the only legal) source for old PC games, DRM free and made compatible with modern Windows systems. The DOS games use DOSBox i.e., with custom configs. Not all games there are totally bug free, but that can't be helped as they normally don't get access to the games' source.
    They also have a nice forum community.
    As mentioned above they have some free games, the newest one they added was Ultima IV. And you don't need to input any credit card or PayPal information for the free games as mentioned above. And I think they don't store the payment information, but I'm not sure about that as I only used PayPal there so far.
    Oh and they don't email you stuff if you don't want to, although the standard settings are that they send mails for their weekend and other promotions.

    Sweeet, replaced my patched one with this, and grabbed Dragonsphere as well. Thx for the news!

    This is the first and best of the series. Not the remake it deserved but still a cult title.
