[Free] Dungeon Keeper at GOG

14 February 2014 - 10:04 AM

GOG.com is having a bit of a sale this weekend, with Dungeons & Dragons games at 80% off and various multiplayer games up to 90% off.

 

It's also giving away Dungeon Keeper for free, but you have to act before the weekend ends! So that gives everyone just a bit over 40 hours to pick up the classic title. There's a bit of a demand for the keys, so when you click on the "Get It Now" button, you may see a prompt saying you'll receive the key via email in a bit (less than a minute for me).


OCC Needs Reviewers

05 January 2014 - 11:23 AM

OCC is hiring once more, and this time it is for Reviewers!

 

The position is pretty self-explanatory as to what exactly you'll be doing. We do have some requirements for you, however, and they are as follows:

  • Must be in the United States
  • Must possess either an Intel Haswell or AMD FX Vishera system
  • At least a 23", 1920x1080 monitor. Three is nice, but not required

If you fit the bill for those, feel free to send an email to Bosco with your application. He'll take it from there over what you'll be doing. There is a time requirement for being a reviewer, as some products can be pretty in-depth.

 

Best of luck to all who apply!


OCC Needs News Editors

13 December 2013 - 06:46 PM

Alright folks, OCC is hiring once again. This time it's for News Editors, which involves (you guessed it) writing news that'll appear on the main page.

 

So, what does being a News Editor entail? Well, pretty much what I just said. You find interesting and relevant news items, summarize them in your own words, and then post them. We'd like to have a good amount on computer hardware, but pretty much any technology-related item is game.

 

We're looking for individuals who can post between three and five articles a day, so if that sounds like something you can do, feel free to apply. Grammar and proper spelling is a must, however, and there is a trial period where we see if you can meet our standards. If you can and successfully pass, then you'll be on your own.

 

 

Anyone interested in applying can send an email to myself at [email protected] or a PM. Then we'll take it from there and see what happens.


[Sale] GOG.com DRM-Free Winter Sale

12 December 2013 - 09:45 PM

GOG.com's DRM-free Winter Sale has arrived, with new deals each day starting today!

 

There's a Recommended Deal every day, as well as a Community Deal, where each offer a bundle of games in one convenient place. Plenty of individual games (more than 600!) are on sale too, plus you can pick one of three special offers each day.

 

 

All GOG.com purchases are backed by a new 30-day money back guarantee, so if you buy something you don't like, you can get your money back and use it towards something else. Nice to see another company doing this, and the 30-day guarantee is damned impressive imo.

 

Plus, you can still get Fallout 1, 2, and Tactics for the low, low cost of zero dollars for a while longer still. The servers at GOG were kind of having issues coping with the demand of that and the Winter Sale, so they had to bring new ones on to help out.


Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

21 November 2013 - 03:57 PM

Didn't see a topic on this, so figured I'd make one.
 
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is a sandbox action-RPG game developed by Monolith Productions (F.E.A.R., Condemned). It's taking its cues from the Batman: Arkham series, which isn't a bad place to gain inspiration from imo.
 
The game is set in between the events of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, so it's in that 60-year gap. Players take on the role of Talion, a Ranger who's half man/half Wraith. Not exactly sure how that fits into the lore, but it does mean Talion has some sweet abilities like being able to see into the Wraith world and even turn enemies into allies (most likely a temporary thing).
 
The new issue of Game Informer has a ton more info on Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, but you can check out some of the first screens below. Shadow of Mordor is set to arrive sometime next year for the PC and the Sony and MS current/next-gen systems.
