F.E.A.R. Platinum comes to GOG

Postby Tchernobog » Sun Feb 15, 2015 08:56 am

Nothing all that remarkable here, but I just noticed that F.E.A.R. was added to GOG's ever expanding catalogue:
http://www.gog.com/game/fear_platinum

F.E.A.R. Platinum, an award winning FPS horror, is available now for Windows, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 50% launch discount!

F.E.A.R. Platinum, is simultaneously described as one of the best designed first person shooters ever, and one of the eeriest horror games around. That's quite the combo. The FPS elements in F.E.A.R. Platinum remain exemplary even to this day, with A.I. that's willing to mercilessly out-flank and outmaneuver you, making each and every encounter an intense fight of who can turn the tables on whom. But combat is just half of this story, the second half is atmosphere - thick enough that you can slice it with a knife. This is a game of anticipation and fear of the unknown. It's downtime between combat encounters that will really get your heart pounding. As you wander the disconcertingly empty office halls and basements… something peculiar follows.

The Platinum package includes the base game, as well as the Extraction Point and Perseus Mandate expansions.

Become a highly-trained hunter of the supernatural in F.E.A.R. Platinum, available now, DRM-free, on GOG.com. The 50% launch discount will last for one week, until Thursday, February 19, at 1:59 PM GMT.

The demo still does not WINE for me. :(

Well, I can run some games not made for MS-DOS but usually I just gravitate towards games made from that era because they usually require next to no good hardware. Also because my computer will literally explode if I run a game made in the last few years or so.

This is true. I have a lot of old games. Still its nice to be able to play a new game that's actually groundbreaking. I'd hate to have to wait 5-10 years to be able to play it.

I think it is habit. My childhood was pretty much DOS so I grew attached to Keen/Hocus Pocus/Blood/etc. Especially shareware CDs, exploring and installing what seemed cool.

Soon I will have to get a better rig however. Or better parts as even new Doom mods that use GZDoom are giving me problems.

Same here, which is why my Radeon HD 6870 is going to waste. :oops:

I...forgot my PC's specs. Or even what kind it is! It is some random Compaq model I got from a relative. Moot to me as long as it can run Blood via DosBox with a servicable framerate. Now I could easily refresh my memory by looking but sadly, I'm lazy.

So recent advances have made it so I can run F.E.A.R. flawlessly at the maximum settings in WINE:

It is all so distressingly modern...

One of these days I'm going to try to understand the basic premise behind FEAR's backstory.

A little ghost girl has possessed a company of elite soldiers that tries to kill the player, but she kills them off if they impede player's progress.

Hmm, Maybe just relying on the demo was a bad idea?

Surely it is Paxton Fettel that is controlling the military clones? But then I am not through all of the game yet.

Alma is just a vision thus far.

Good god this is a short game. The whole affair could be described in a few paragraphs.

And to answer your question N0t_mINe, Alma is just being a good mommy.
