Hey you! Have a nice day!

If you like the Arkham City formula, Oranges is definitely worth it - it obviously got a lot of flack for not adding much to that formula, but if you wanted more Arkham City, that's what you get. The story is pretty good, there's some cool boss fights, the CSI investigation stuff is played up a little bit more, and it honestly got more flack in reviews than it deserved for 'just' being a straight sequel (gameplay wise) to Arkham city.Are Oranges and Knight worth it? I remember Knight's pc being pretty badly panned at launch, did they get fixed up post release?
If i'm reading it correctly, despite the obvious cost increases the pandemic would have brought, GOG still managed growth YOY from 2019, so I'd say that's an added bonus - not that I myself feel that 'growth' is the be all, end all of economic goals, but it's nice to see either way.https://www.cdprojekt.com/en/wp-content/uploads-en/2021/04/management-board-report-on-the-activities-of-the-cd-projekt-group-and-cdc-projekt-sa-in-2020.pdf
Looking at CDPR's financials on page 102, GOG generated 343,748,000 PLD (~$91 million) last year and earned a 20,655,000 PLD (~$5.4 million) profit. A huge chunk of that revenue was likely from Cyberpunk, but it's nice to see that they're at least profitable.
I've been eyeing Ghost Recon for so long despite owning physical copies, I just havent been able to justify the $3 to myself. Daikatana also has been calling to me, and I know better, but it's still there....Well, i ended up buying a ton of old games i already have on Steam and on Retail CD in Storage somewhere but they were super cheap on GOG so now i have the DRM Free, updated to work on new PCs GOG versions too. Yay me!
There's still a couple of newer releases i might pick up in the next two weeks but i wanted to grab all the retro games i had my eye on that were mostly less than £2 each and mainly about £1.10 for a lot of them. I know they're old in both looks and design but sometimes i like to fireup dosbox and play some old games for a few days. It's also good to play these games with patches as back in the day it was only when the patch was put on a magazine CD that i even knew there was one. lol.
