Where should I buy it?

#1 Posted by Lukeweizer (2584 posts) -

I've been thinking about picking this up for a while and have decided to take the dive.

I noticed on Direct 2 Drive, it's actually $5.99 compared to Steam's $9.99. I know they patched the 150 day limit aspect of the game, is that included in the auto updates from Steam? Does D2D do auto updates? Can I add my D2D purchase to Steam?

Thanks for the guidance.

Any official updates are done by Steam. So if its official Steam will do it.

go to Good Old Games and buy it. It includes a bunch of other stuff with it, as well as it automatically working on newer machines (you might have to mod for higher resolution)

Yep, got mine from GoG and it's awesome.

Good Old Games, then go and find the patch that runs it in modern resolutions

Do you need to run dosbox seperately with the steam version? I really don't know how to handle dosbox, mounting drives and all that nonsense scares me.

I really hate not being able to edit on the mobile site. Does GoG version include the 150 day limit fix patch? Or would I have to find that myself? The giant bomb page for the game also says it's available for Mac. The steam version mentions nothing of the Mac version. Is it even available for digital distribution?
