Blizzard is putting out some classic games on GOG, starting with the original Diablo today (for $10). GOG says Warcraft and Warcraft II will follow soon. Warcraft III is getting a remaster later this year, so obviously that won’t be on there, but you know what’s an interesting omission? Diablo II. 👀
Jazz Jackrabbit and Jazz Jackrabbit 2, a pair of games near and dear to my arm, are now available for purchase on GOG.com, optimized to play on these newfangled modern computers. The hare pair are joined by Epic Pinball: The Complete Collection, another game that helped me while away the mid-’90s.
The first Mafia game is now available on GOG after years of being off stores like Steam. The uniquely period-appropriate open-world crime-a-thon is unfortunately missing its licensed music, but is otherwise intact and DRM-free. It’s a classic in most of, if not all, its glory. Worth checking out if you haven’t already.
