Seriously, Capcom put Dragon's Dogma on here, why can't we get Capcom's catalog of great old games. Mega Man series, Ghost 'N Goblins series, Bionic Commando, 1942, 1943, Final Fight, SFII and SFII series.
From my understanding, we've had Capcom USA on GOG for years, now, but the only game they are allowed to publish is the awful PC port of Street Fighter Alpha 2.

I'm not sure whether Dragon's Dogma is published on GOG by Capcom USA, or if "proper" Capcom International (JPN) has finally become an official GOG publisher. If the game is published here by the former, chances are Capcom US can only sell these two titles, and the chances of seeing more Capcom games on GOG is very slim. If, on the other hand, we finally got Capcom International on board, we *could* potentially see more of their games in here, but you do have to mind a few things:

- Japanese developers and publishers, including Capcom, aren't too PC-friendly and, in fact, most of the games/series you mentioned don't even have PC versions, so the likelihood of them landing on GOG is practically none;
- GOG only sells PC games, unless they're ports made by other companies (in this case, DotEmu made the SNK Neo Geo ports), and none of the non-PC games you listed have official ports;
- even if a Capcom game is on Steam or on PC altogether, GOG is still a DRM-free store, and Japanese devs and publishers don't usually do DRM-free, even if they have a few games on PC;

*If* Dragon's Dogma is, in fact, published on GOG by Capcom International, and not just Capcom USA, I think the most likely games they'll sell in here are some Resident Evil titles, maybe Street Fighter IV (Street Fighter V is too "new" to be on GOG), with a bit of luck some of the Mega Man X games, the Lost Planet series, (maybe?) a few Devil May Cry games, (hopefully not) the 2008 Bionic Commando or, with a bit of luck, the first two Dead Risings. Mega Man Legacy collection could potentially qualify as old games, but it was released in 2015 and therefore it might be too "recent" for GOG. Plus, you have to remember Capcom's older games are mostly associated with consoles, and the vast majority of the GOG user base consists of PC gamers (sometimes even annoyingly so), and probably neither GOG nor Capcom are very interested in releasing "console" games in here, since most of the customers don't have "console nostalgia".

I know this is a PC store and DRM free, but Dragon's Dogma is already a huge triple-A title and made it here. The same Japanese companies are able to make ports and hawk them all over the place, GBA, DS, iPhone, Android Phones, tablets, etc. Doing a PC port of these old games would not be hard.

And I know you can;t get everything DRM free. It is why I know the stuff they need a license to make again (Duck Tales, Chip and Dale, Darkwing Duck, Little Nemo) won't ever be here. But Capcom's IP would be pretty great here.

Capcom keeps talking about wanting to revive and bring back their old franchises and expand more into the west. Steam and GoG are the way to go. The install base is huge (dwarfs the console market), you're already reaching dedicated gamers, system requirements are low and the platforms are dominant in the west.

The only thing they would hate is the sales and pricing structure. That may be the reason they don;t do it.
Yeah Super Ghouls 'N Ghosts is a real classic, I've never actually played the NES one but now you've mentioned it I might go away and see if I can find it. How brutal are we talking? lol like Battletoads brutal?

Glad there's love for that game.

Uploaded a new one today, it's another oldie but a goldie from the SNES days...

Donkey Kong Country

Well it is a different type of difficult than Battletoads. Part of the difficulty in Battletoads was the control. It was delayed, slow and clunky. Ghost 'N Goblins is more difficult than Battletoads IMO, but it is because the enemy placement and attacks are brutal. The Red Devils will follow you across the level. To be honest, the arcade version is superior and a lot of people hate the NES version, but I like both and find the NES port to be a good port. especially for those days.

Nice on DKC. Another game that for some reason gets crapped on these days. Its become the cool thing and hipster thing to do. But the game is still great IMO.

Yeah, it is also difficult, but improving skills and getting deeper, finding more is what made us come back to those games. I miss that game type.
Hey folks, would you mind sparing 1 minute to help me out

I'm doing my first ever live stream in a couple of days so I'm running a poll on Twitter for you to vote on which game I play.

I'd really appreciate some votes so it isn't decided by about 2 people :p and if you fancy retweeting it to get word out that's even better :D

Just need to click the link and pick an option :)

Thanks for your help!

I'm averse to facecams and commentary, but it's nice to see the first DKC getting some love anyway. It's no wonder you've never beat it, though, since you don't seem to roll off edges for the extra distance and into enemies for the extra speed. The later stages practically necessitate both.

Cheers for the tip, I'll try giving that a go for the next video. Some of the games I play I know vv well and feel like I can offer lots of tips and advice... this isn't one of them lol. I love the game but it's not one of my strongest games... saying that, I am much better at games now than I was when I played it as a kid so I'm pretty confident I'll be able to finish it for the channel.

Thanks to anyone that voted in the Twitter poll.. Super Mario World is smashing it at the mo, with 78% of the 40 votes so it looks like that's gonna be our first stream. I'll be starting from about 10pm UK time (to make sure my kids are asleep) and it'll be either Tuesday or Wednesday but I'll confirm on the day.

The 8pm video tonight that just went up is the next installment of Lands of Lore. This time our search for ingredients for the elixir takes us to the Urbish Mines, and I'm sure anyone that's played the game before will remember the guardian at the door... The Lahrkon

Excellent idea for the forum ScouseMouse. I'm gonna go give you a sub too.

PS: I like the Ringo song about Scouse the Mouse.

Cheers, hope you like the channel. I got a few more GOG classics from my childhood that I'm starting soon... Dungeon Keeper, Beneath a Steel Sky, Little Big Adventure, along with a longgg stream of SNES games.

I didn't even know Scouse the Mouse was a thing until someone told me a week or two after me setting up the channel
Sent you a GOG friend invite, ScouseMouse. :)

Cheers Adam, I found it and accepted. If it wasn't for you doing that (and telling me here) I'd have never known that feature even existed.... or known that I had 3 PMs from people on here lol.

==============================================================

Tonight we're at RAPTURE, Chapter 5 in Super Meat Boy and it's starting to get hard!

I don't make you sit through alllll the deaths but there is a full death count included as always, and it's a big one this time!

I noticed you like the hard games: Super Ghouls 'N Ghost, DKC, SMW (Which gets hard if you try and beat all the levels) and now Super Meat Boy (not sure how retro this game is though, but still cool).

Have you played any of the newer 2D games in the DKC or GNG series? I have not played Ultimate Ghouls 'N Ghosts as I don;t own a PSP, but DKC Tropical Freeze is great IMO.

I am glad Nintendo is doing 2D again. New SMB series, DKC series, Yoshi's Wholly World. Iif SEGA could get their act together...
Hey guys, tonight is gonna be my first ever live stream. It's gonna start around 10:30pm (UK time) but I'll send out a reminder 5 mins before I go live.

It's gonna be a chilled stream playing some Super Mario World and just lots of chat, so feel free to fire any questions at me.

This is the link for later.

I've never really thought of it like that, I certainly don't deliberately try to play hard games! and I'm far from a gaming expert... saying that I started recording Earthworm Jim last night as well which is imo another very hard game. When it comes to SMW, I'm a bit of an expert at that lol, it's another one of those SNES games that as a kid I just played dya in day out for so long.

I haven't played the more modern ones, no (I don't really do handhelds either btw). I did consider having a go at the NES GNG just cos of people saying how hard it is and I wanna see how I get on with it.

Yeah 3D is great but there's still definitely a place for 2D games too.
