Came here to tell everyone about Mount and Blade.  Didn't see the thing about The Witcher 2, but that's okay...already got that game on Steam.  As usual, Olivier beat me to the punch anyway.

Omg, I missed it. Well, better to be ready for the next one. I probably should register on Steam too :)

Btw, in case you didn't know, if you already bought The Witcher 2 from a different source, you are eligible to a free GOG copy anyway. Just use your product code to redeem it here. Might be worth it for some extras or a DRM-free backup.

You missed Mount & Blade, yeah, but I think it's not too late for The Witcher 2, the promo still runs for seven days (until Nov 25), so if you collect stamps each day starting from today, you should get a copy, too. (Including a copy of the movie "The Gamers: Director's Cut", but I'm not sure if that's worth it.)

No idea what's up with GOG.com, but they're having another sale already, and this time you can get the turn-based strategy classic Age of Wonders for free (limited amount of copies, currently 240k left).

No i didn't, last stamp i needed was on 25th and on that day it was gone, i hoped i could get a stamp last day but i was wrong it seems. I checked promo video, that game was really good, but i probably i wouldn't have time to play it.

Btw thanks for info about Age of Wonders, that one is really nice and i am glad i could get it. 60k left.

I still have a spare code for Witcher 2 as I already own the game, the code will expire on Dec 31 if it isn't used and I haven't found anyone who's still interested in it. If you think your computer can run it and there's a chance you might try it one day, you can have it.  :)

Oh well maybe, but i got Age of Wonders and i am really happy about it. I will try playing that one.

And about Witcher 2, actualy i could play it and i think it is a really good game. If you somehow could send it to me i would be really grateful.

I most of the time play Ad&d, now i am trying to continue FRUA Neverwinter Nights, lets hope i will have time for things i plan to do :D

Ok here is something from Christmas, there are English programs but lot more German. Programs are free but you will probably need to download and install them and then ask for activation code to be able to activate and fully use them. They work for a day but maybe there will be time at the end when they will all work again for a short time, half is passed but there is still some more. I didn't wanted to open separate thread, but if that is needed i will. Here is the link, wishing everyone Happy Hollidays! http://www.mostiwant.com/blog/xmas-calendar-2014-giveaways/?PageSpeed=noscript

Edit this one is still active https://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/lpa/christmas?c=xmas12

Here is something interesting, new version of Windows 10 but it is Beta, and it is free for download, as enterprise edition. I have heard this from FB friend who has installed it on his laptop and he saids that it is ok and that works good. I plan to install it too, though it will not be easy, but on the good side my old computer barely meets minimum requirements.

I would be very careful about installing that for a couple of reasons.  You have to know what you're getting into.

First off, there may not be driver support for every device out there.  Don't be surprised if your printer/video card/sound card/mouse/whatever doesn't work correctly anymore.  It takes time for the companies who supply the drivers to update them to the newest OS, and that usually doesn't start happening until close to release time.

Secondly, when the OS releases, you will have to uninstall and go back to your previous OS.  It's only "free" during the evaluation period so that you can help the company locate bugs so that they can hammer out the issues for the full release. 

In addition, the system might crash sometimes.  This is normal.  Again, this is what the evaluation period is for.

Finally,  you have to be good with technology to get some things to work sometimes.  This involves researching things, figuring out workarounds, or finding other ways to accomplish things if need be (like dual-booting into another OS).

Have fun, but don't expect it will be a permanent change.
