If you are a PC gaming fan, then you will be keen to check out a new service called Good Old Games that makes DRM-free PC classics available for legal download for the cost of a couple of pints.
If, like us, you're itching to play Bethesda's mighty Fallout 3 this autumn, then the good news is that GOG currently offers Interplay's original Fallout and Fallout 2 for download along with Freespace, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Descent, and a load of other Interplay goodness.
Soldiers: Heroes of World War 2, Operation Flashpoint, and Colin McRae Rally 2005 are soon to be added. Prices range from $5.99 for games like Fallout 2 to $9.99 for more recent games.
