The concert is what makes up the gigs I think. I downloaded the non 4k version (its huge). I wont bother watching it though I'm not THAT big of a fan of this series.

Nah, the concert is separate from the rest of the goodie packs in the "Goodies Collection", and each different encode of it is separate as well.

Its this:

2 books, a concert and Gwent cards for the Gwent game and of course the Witcher game which everyone owns. 

The cards are: Sunset Wanderers, Yennefer of Vengerberg, Ciri, Vesemir Mentor

Ah, okay. I guess I must have missed it, because I didn't see anything about it on your link.

Here's what's in the Goodies Collection. See what I mean? Gigabytes of ZIP files with no clues as to their contents.

That’s impressive.  It’s so sad to me. I have wild hunt on switch and from a trade but hadn’t the time yet to get to it. I have the gog release too but it’s basic 3 so it lacks the fluff so cross play shouldn’t work so well.  I hear nothing but good things.  Time…

I got the first two games for free, I think the third game was only $10 or so?

I played the first game for a few hours and enjoyed it, but the combat is a little weird. It's basically just "click the mouse when we tell you to".

Click when we tell you to?  That sounds strange.  I really should see myself making time for this as the plot thickens.

It's kind of like PSO, where the icon changes or whatever to let you know when to click again. Keep those combo chains going or whatever.

It's really not great, but it's not bad enough to make me want to stop playing or anything like that.

...at least not yet.

 

And joining Fight Clubs in the bars for money is kind of funny.

Actually I felt that way for all three games (mainly the first two). I beat all of them and the second one I just didn't care for all around. The third one the production quality is through the roof but for some reason I still didn't care for that world, the characters etc. It didn't help that the majority of quests are: take a job, use Witcher sense, kill monster, get paid, repeat. Maybe throw a decision in there now and then. I guess you could really get into the crafting and stuff like that but I don't know, it's not great and it's not bad….its just good enough to keep playing to finish it and (for me) not go back again.

I haven't played 2 or 3, so I don't know how they compare. Even the first game, I only played it maybe three nights.

More free stuff on GOG: Ultima Underworld 1+2, Syndicate Plus, and Syndicate Wars

 

https://www.gog.com/promo/rerelease_ultima_underworld_and_syndicate

What what?  That's nuts, they recently were forced by the trolls at EA to remove those games.  Before they went down I picked off Syndicate Plus in case I wanted to play it down the line as it's good. (Had Ultima already.)

I wouldn't be surprised if it was someone's way of giving EA the middle finger. Works for me in that case!

GoG just dropped a half dozen new (old) Star Trek game releases over there with good hard cut discounts on each for the launch.  Depending on taste there's probably a bit for everyone.  Two of the (the?) best FPS games for the franchise with Elite Forces 1 and 2, bridge commanding, third academy release, 2 armada and an away team game.

Sweet I'll have to grab the Elite Force games... they used to be unobtainum.

No kidding, I've had luck.  A year ago found #1 at a half price books for like $5 which had me laughing how expensive that one is and promptly found updated hacks to get it to work in windows10 so it's fun.  #2 seems to rate a bit less but still liked a lot, it has been there and I just ignored it for $10 and has been for a long time.  With GoG though, and me not wanting to just flip the junk, I'm all in on that buy.

 

I'd just love to know more about the others, very unfamiliar with them.

Really? My uncle straight up gave me a copy of Elite Force and a copy of Bridge Commander (and the ST TNG Technical Manual) in 2005.

 

Anyway, Crysis and Warhead are $4.99 each on GOG right now.

Really... the CDRoms were like $80 at some point.

That's I think their usual ongoing list of freebies they slowly expand with time, what's more interesting are the random days they give one up for 24-48 hours that don't hit that one.  They've been generous for years with stuff, far before Epic decided to pop in and try and bait people.
