Freespace 2 Is Currently Being Given Away Free on GOG for 48 Hours!!
www.gog.com has it on the front page being given away for the next 48 hours.

I know you guys already have it, but it's still worth mentioning.

If I understand it correctly, anyone who gets it within these 48 hours can keep it forever

Posted a Knossos attract thread to hopefully get some conversions. Bump it, post memes, whatever you got.

Snagged it!  I finally have a legit digital backup to my original CDs. 
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

My original CDs of european release lies carefully sealed and secured from high temperatures, humidity or any other risk of CD degrading. It will happen one day, so it's good to have reliable backup when that day finally come.

It reminds me that my current installation has about 15 years o__O, only cloned one or two times when I moved to new HD.

I regret every cent of it, even though it was like 5 bugs. If I handed the money directly to DaveB I wouldn't mind, but I doubt he or anybody else from :v-old: benefitted.

People benefit by the fact it's easily available and has an active community.  How are newbies supposed to get it otherwise?

 
Re: Freespace 2 Is Currently Being Given Away Free on GOG for 48 Hours!!
Well that only helps if newbies know they don't have to pay and can have an enhanced version of it~

Let me say it another way.  For many years the only way to get FS was for exorbitant amounts on eBay, or via Home of the Underdogs, or via sketchier methods.  Having it for just $5 on GOG is ideal.  And this free giveaway is even sweeter.

But there's no way we can just hoard a million licenses, or? :(

Correct.  If they don't get it for free now, they will need to pay for it.
