More good news for retro gaming today with the announcement from Good Old Games that the classics Wing Commander and Wing Commander 2 from Origin are now available for purchase - as always, DRM free and at the awesome cost of USD$6.99.

I became obsessed with Wing Commander many moons ago after seeing a screenshot in an American magazine - Computer Shopper - of what was, for the time, phenomenally realistic VGA graphics in a space combat sim. I was so enamored with it I actually cut it out and stuck it on one of my school folders, where I looked longingly at it every day until I finally managed to get the game in Australia - about a year later. I still have the picture somewhere. Fond memories!

Check it out over on now - our game page has some more information.

Also, Dungeon Keeper 2 is now available.

DK2. Good memories.

Hm, 26MB. Bugger, that means no speech pack. Edit: Or Secret Missions 1&2, or Special Operations 1&2... which is where the storyline really comes in.

Wonder if it can be retrofitted in to it :D

GOG's been on a roll lately going through EA and Activision back catalogues from all the acquisitions they've made over the years. I couldn't resist the HoMM series on sale recently and all of the later Zork games are up now (Return to Zork, Nemesis & Grand Inquisitor)

Looks like the release of WC1+2 and Dungeon Keeper 2 are the first pair in a series of 8 EA classics.
Such an awesome way to kick off!

Speculation? I reckon it's very likely that System Shock and Bioforge will make an appearance.

I'm betting Syndicate

oh wow ... didn't realise they had Rise of the Triad! might have to pick that one up this weekend.

Syndicate was the bomb back in the day.

I also spy a Rocketeer sticker on your school folder.

I still got my DK2 cd lying around somewhere. That game was tits. Man, I'd love it if they made a third!

Syndicate! yeah that'd be excellent

They've added Populous, Ultima I+II+III, and Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar. Ultima IV is free too!

I will void all bodily fluids from my person if they ever release theme hospital.

Heh, I have almost the exact same story as I do in the OP about Populous. Saw a screenshot for it in Computer Shopper, waited about 2 years for it to come out in .au, then finally was able to get a copy of it for my birthday. I spent a LOT of hours in that game. I still dust it off occasionally for a bash.

Strange I wonder what the reasoning is there - I thought if anything it'd be the other way around with Ultima IV at $5.99 and Ultima I-III for free. Maybe IV isn't a great installment perhaps?

No complaints though!

Looks like they half-arsed fixing up Dungeon Keeper 2. Doesn't work properly with ATI cards and frequently crashes on Windows 7.

Dk2 was s***, better graphics but way less features than the first one which was godly.
