Descent is a hidden gem? It was about as big as Doom back in the day.
It was a great game, particularly for multiplayer over the university network. I'm pretty sure it got way more MP action than even Doom at that time.
My only issue with the singleplayer was that somehow shooting pew-pew lasers was never as much fun as things like shotguns and chainguns in doom/duke3d.
My vote for next hidden gem: Hostile Waters.
(or BG&E simply because i've been waiting for a discout for ages ;-) )
well i've just tried the demo and it wasn't that good :p
i have a 24" lcd and i couldn't force it in window mode , it didn't detect the sound settings and it was way to speedy (even on a single core)
i pressed space 1 time and i was out of missles 2 secs later the lowest drone shot me to smithereens in no time.
so i take it GOG arranged all of this already
then i'll be shopping this week again ^^
did you use dosbox? It should have the sound drivers, and allow you to limit the speed and run windowed.
Graphics are never gonna look great on a 24" lcd though... unless you use a mod/port.
