I picked up some games from GOG's summer sale for a pretty steep discount:
Daikatana
both Serious Sams
and the first three Tomb Raiders
with the plan of getting them running on my WinME/V2 SLI retro PC. I think all should work except Tomb Raider 3 and maybe Tomb Raider 1. Ended up paying less than $6US for the six games.

Unfortunately not. You have to install the game on a modern PC, then copy the game folder to the retro PC. In some cases you have to delete a few files in the game folder, such as 3dfx dlls.

Just tested: they all work except TR1 because no MS-DOS mode in ME.

Sealed copy of C&C: Tiberian Sun. That back cover picture with NOD heavy tank and mammoth tanks always make me chuckle, why on earth they decided to use a screenshot from some early development build?

Been collecting PlayStation 1 games for a while now, but now that I almost have every game I want I've again started to eye up some big box PC games too. Luckily there aren't too many I'd like to eventially collect up, I don't have all that much space for these.

Thanks for letting me have a look inside the box. This allowed me to leave the seal on my copy intact and just put it to the rest of my id games. Next up: Ion Maiden...

Nobody wanted to buy this on eBay for $1.99, so I took pity on it and grabbed it. I've played this a bit many years ago, didn't realise it supports Roland MT-32 though, so it'll be good to test that out.

Took advantage of the GOG summer sale and picked up the Avernum and Geneforge series for ~80% off. Also picked up the first Avernum remake, Escape from the Pit since it was marked down equally. These look like my kind of RPGs, though I've never played any Spiderweb Software games, so I hope I like them.

Was at my mums house and found some old stuff :)

A 1999 GDI Soldier that came with the collectors edition Tiberian Sun. I believe there was 4 different figures. I dont know the numbers on each or which is more or less rare.
