Living in a rurual area where I can only get dial-up I also need boxed games or games on disc. All the Carol Reed games are on disc as are the Nancy Drew games. I got Lost Chronicles Zerzura on disc from Viva Media, also Anna. I do get games on disc from Amazon and Half.com.
So they are around but who knows for how much longer.

I'm finding it harder and harder to get the discs at Amazon now too. When I'm looking for a game, I go on there everyday because when they do get it, they seem to only get a few and then they're gone forever. You have to pounce on them when you see them.

I said I would not do downloads but have actually downloaded 3 games now from Steam. I wanted the games so....

And since I followed a link above a couple of days ago, every time I come into this thread my malwarebytes goes off!

I think that's Pilaus' avatar. lol It links back to the Agon site, and doesn't show as an image for me. My Malwarebytes kicks off too on this thread, but only on the pages where Pilaus has posted.

THat's interesting, on my browser all I get is a little image holder icon on Pilaus's avatar. I guess my browser blocks it.

I just had to tell you what Bigfish did for me today. I had written to them, giving them a copy of my games receipt for three of the Agon games - games which I knew they sold. They came back and gave me free downloads for all the games! Is that service or what?!

The only game I didn't have a receipt for was Pirates of Madagascar. I'll have to figure out something for that. But now with those three downloads, I can go to the download folder and make a copy for future use. Isn't that tremendous?!

Melia, I'm not surprised about what Big Fish did for you; that's the kind of response and treatment I have always had from their Customer Support. Thanks for letting us know. thumbsup

Another reason why I just don't understand why people complain about BigFish. They stand in a class by themselves. Were you a BF customer before that?

Yes. I've bought many games from them and have an account with them.

Melia, the 3 AGON games that Big Fish sells are:
Agon: The London Scene
Agon: From Lapland to Madagascar
Agon: The Lost Sword of Toledo

I bought my AGON games from them, and I'm pretty sure that the second game includes both the Lapland episode and the Madagascar one. I remember playing it. So if that's the Pirates of Madagascar game you're talking about, your new Big Fish games should include it.

And here's a thread from a couple of years ago at GameBoomers about both episodes being included in the one Big Fish game:
AGON: From Lapland to Madagascar

oops

Was it my avatar...? I think the URL was no longer alive, sorry! I changed it, hopefully there will be no error messages now.

As for The Pirates of Madagascar, it is part of the title AGON - From Lapland to Madagascar on Big Fish. This is a special edition for BFG only. Otherwise the 3 eposides are part of The Mysterious Codex.

Yes, games can be burned to disc, and yes, boxed games requiring online activation can become unusable if online activation is no longer possible, but these are not the issues.

At one time is was the consumer who drove the engine, not the seller. It was the consumer who told the seller what they wanted and how they wanted. But today, it's the seller who drives the engine and the engine is called profits.

Because profits are todays buzz word in the business world, consumers are being told how they're going to buy something, what form its going to take, and tough if they don't like it. And the consumer sits back and takes it, something that would never have occurred years ago.

I am one of those in the minority who want certain things sold in a certain form, because I find it more convenient. And because of this I've been forced to buy necessary things in a form totally inconvenient to my needs. This trend is ever increasing, and the consumer is buying into it.

As long as profits drive the engine, consumers are going to be forced to buy more and more things that are not convenient to their needs. And unless consumers stand up and say enough, unless consumers stop telling themselves they can't do anything about all this, they are going to be at the mercy of the seller. The one who now drives a train the consumer once owned.

Pilaus - my Malwarebyted didn't pop up this time so...

I couldn't see your avatar before, just an empty box with an X in it.

I'm one hundred percent with you on that Homer.

It is a great scheme though place a file on your server and sell it over and over again to the gullible while they are told what they bought is not theirs and never had been.

What happened to the sheeple? Just say thank you for your favors master we shall comply without questioning. While accepting the same with e-books. Oh well I have plenty of other things to do.

Sure
