    12/16 - GAME OVER! THANKS FOR PLAYING AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS! :D

    12/14 - I will be giving away THREE games a day for the next three days special thanks to katalin_2003 for an infusion of cash! :D
    12/14 - WILL BE GIVING AWAY TWO GAMES A DAY FOR FIVE DAYS


    -----------------------------------

    DAY 5 - FINAL DAY!

    Thanks to GoG.com for their 50% off holiday sale, I will be offering <s>one</s> two winners a day for <s>ten</s> five days a chance to pick one $4.99 game or two $2.99 games. For those of you not familiar with GoG.com, they offer classic game titles that are repackaged to work with Windows 7, and are completely DRM free. GoG.com is run by the same folks that developed The Witcher and The Witcher 2.

    PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE SIGNING UP FOR THE CONTEST!
    Anyone in violation will have their entry removed and get a lump of coal in their stocking. If I'm in the mood I will offer a possible courtesy note to re-read the contest rules. I may just ignore you altogether, because Santa is busy this time of year!

    Rules are as follows (YES YOU ***MUST*** READ AND ABIDE BY THESE):

    (1) Choose your games from GoG.com and enter using the Google Docs form here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?hl=en_US&formkey=dFFhYzdvN2hRUEZCTUQwTUVySVZtckE6MQ
    Entries can be viewed here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...FFhYzdvN2hRUEZCTUQwTUVySVZtckE&hl=en_US#gid=0

    Note that games in GoG's regular game catalog show up as $5.99 or $9.99 but everything is half-off (so if you're bad at math $5.99 games are $2.99, $9.99 games are $4.99). Also, if you cannot use or view Google Docs for whatever reason, PM me and I will add you.

    (2) Every person can add up to five GoG.com games priced at $2.99 or $4.99. You only need to enter once as drawings will be made every day and you will win one $4.99 or two $2.99 games if drawn. Please make entries in order of preference as I will award based on the first entry.

    If you have a $2.99 entry listed first I will choose the next $2.99 entry to go along with it. If there is no other $2.99 entry, you will win only that single $2.99 entry. Remaining entries will be eligible for succeeding drawings. No prize amount will exceed $6 each day.

    (3) You can enter at any time until the contest ends, but you can only enter once.

    (4) You must be an NBR member with a join date of November 2011 or earlier with 10 or more quality posts. I do this in order to reward existing NBR members and to prevent spam entries. NO EXCEPTIONS!

    (5) These games require that you have or sign up for a GoG.com account and are of legal age or have legal consent to download and own such games.

    (6) Winners will be drawn once a day based on when I feel like it, lol (usually late evening). The list will be randomized each day and <s>a winner</s> two winners pulled from that list.

    You can win up to five games total during the <s>ten</s> five days, and if you are fortunate to win all five of your games, be happy, you can't enter again.

    (7) First drawing will be held 12/12/11. Last one 12/21/11.

    (8) Last but not least, have fun, and post your favorite classic game, PC, console, arcade, or otherwise (2005 or earlier) along with a screenshot or other image related to that game. Oh yeah, you have to put "Ho Ho Ho!" in your post too. :p

    Land Ho! (Ho Ho!) - Megaman

    You know what my favorite game was? Megaman Legends! It was an action RPG set on a large island with a VERY large underground labyrinth, and the whole thing ends up being interconnected, although you don't realize this at first (and may not realize it even after beating the game!) It was neat that the game didn't spoon feed this fact to you... it left a lot of the exploration up to you.

    There were a ton of items to collect which you could combine to upgrade your arm-cannon, and the difficulty was pretty high. It was great. I'm not sure exactly what made it so magical, but it certainly was. Maybe it was the fact that you could introduce yourself as Hippopotamus instead of Megaman at one point early in the game, and if you did, it would stick.

    Anyway, Ho Ho Ho! - and Merry Christmas, and TY for spreading some Christmas cheer!

    I hope this is politically correct - HO HO HO !
    GOG.com is up again!
    Duke Nukem was one of my favorite time wasters at work-

    I also spent way to much time playing a hockey game Air.exe (similar to pong)

    Happy holidays to all.

    Oh wow. GOG really added some gems since the last time I checked. Your links aren't working for me (shotty government internet), but I'm definitely considering picking up FreeSpace, Darkstar One and NWN.
