Be sure to read this if you want the Fallout games.

And they add: "We're currently experiencing server issues due to the highest traffic ever noted on GOG.com. We did anticipate much interest in our 2013 DRM-Free Winter Sale, as well as our Fallout 1,2, & Tactics giveaway, but the number of visits exceeded our highest expectations by far. And we mean FAR. For today, we've prepared double the number of servers that were needed to support our highest day in traffic to date, but it turned out to be not nearly sufficient. We're working on quadrupling our server supply, now.

We're terribly sorry for all the inconvenience you might encounter today, while visiting GOG.com store. If you're new to the site, rest assure that this is far from our day-to-day standards. We're working around the clock until all the problems are fixed, and everyone can enjoy everything we have to offer. If you've encountered any problems, please give it some time. Most issues will be resolved automatically, soon, as the first batch of extra servers is coming on-line right now. If you're affected by something more serious, please be assured that our support team will assist you and fix whatever needs fixing.

Again, we apologize for the user experience, that is not up to our usual standards"

Just so you know going in that you might run into some temporary problems.

Gil.

Thanks, Gil. My advice is to get the games for free and download them next year. That's my plan, anyway. grin

I imagine it's self defense, L4L. lol

Have you seen their new 30 day money back guarantee?
GOG is honestly the best site ever!

GOG is the best. If I didn't already have two copies of Fallout 1 and 2, including the GOG versions, you can bet I'd be going for this offer.

For those of you who haven't played these games, go for it. I don't like turn-based combat as a rule, but I loved these games.

Thanks for the heads-up. I didn't have these classics, but was always tempted to get them.

I haven't been playing many games the last few months--got out of the habit when we had company for most of the summer. But I'm sure I'll start in again at some point. Can't keep a good gamer down. lol
