What the hell happened!? I hope it's okay for me to talk about this on GOG's forums, but anyway. A private tracker by the name of Under Ground gamer has been taken offline.
There are a number of reasons why this bothers me so much. I suspect many of you hardcore retro gamers know of it but for those of you that don't Under Ground gamer was a torrent tracking site dedicated to the preservation of older games weather it be PC or console.
Torrent sites are often used for piracy this is true, but many of the games hosted on UG had their CD check DRM intact which admittedly was annoying, but the sited maintained that they were for preservation and not piracy.
UG had a massive selection of games many of which you couldn't find annoyware else. Before GOG got the rights to anvil of dawn these guys were the only ones I know of to have a working CD version of the game.
They did have some GOG games but you had to use a separate filter and it was frond upon to to torrent it. (as it should be lol)
It really disturbs me that this site was taken down for what seems to be copy right infringement. So many games on that site can't be found anywhere else. They really did preserve a great libry of games that no one may never again be able to play.
