That post is a bandwidth killer. I think I am going to edit it and just make it links. :shock:

That's what they all say.

You could just break them up over several posts so it spills over onto different pages. It would not be so noticeable then.

I confess, I read Rath's and Hedegaard's posts before the last image loaded, and for a second I saw the same thing... That was the power of subconscious suggestion... :lol:

That'd require me remembering to post them later. I am just going to resize them all even smaller.

Now resized so that post isn't such a bandwidth killer.

Hey guys,

I know this is the acquisitions thread and in a way this is also an acquisition:

GOG is offering up to 66% discount the next 3 days on many classic Sierra titles.
I paid 30USD and got them all (except the Swat ones which aren't really Sierra anyway)

See the offer here:
http://www.gog.com/promo/activision_wee ... a992b2786a

and a picture to follow this post to make it more interesting :)

I say it's fair enough to include when you acquire Sierra games from GOG!

Lucky to find a sealed version of: Lost in Time for about 15USD from a private seller.

Although not a true Sierra (made by Coktel Vision) but published by Sierra.
At least its an adventure game (unlike the original Half Life)

So thought it might just qualify to be posted here.
Really great condition!

I include the Sierra Family games with the Sierra games. Ken Williams did, too, including their games before being acquired by Sierra, especially since many of them were republished by Sierra after the fact. I would even go as far as to include earlier games that were not republished. Earlier in this thread you should find my copy of LiT. I even posted the cover for Dynamix's Caveman Ugh-Lympics.

Got this sweet Roland SC-55 that is practically complete in box. I'm guessing it's maybe missing some registration cards. It even has the original Roland composite cables with 1/2" adapters, Roland MIDI cable, and remote.
