List of winners

---

It is with much excitement that I come to you with today’s announcement!

I’m sure that all of you are familiar with GOG.com, the game distribution service owned and operated by CD Projekt. As some of you may have seen yesterday, GOG.com just added Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion to their catalog, further expanding upon their existing Bethesda titles. If you prefer your games DRM free or if you have simply never played through (and modded) the earlier Fallout and Elder Scrolls games, this is a great opportunity to scoop those up.

GOG.com, being the good guys that they are, reached out to us last week seeking to collaborate and do something special for fans of these two series'. What's more special than free stuff? Therefore, we will be giving away GOG.com keys for each of the aforementioned titles! 60 keys total, 20 keys per game, 8 ways to enter.

There are a few actions you can complete to enter, and each action counts as a unique entry (though you can only complete each action once). Click the following link for specifics on the timeframe and the 8 entry options.

Nexus Mods and GOG.com Giveaway Details

We are thrilled to be teaming up with GOG.com on this, and this giveaway certainly won’t be the last time you see Nexus Mods and GOG.com collaborate. They have been an absolute pleasure to work with and genuinely seem to care about understanding the modding culture on a deeper level.

Best of luck to all who enter, and happy modding!

    No hard copy?
     
    Download speeds in the Unlimited ISP packages only give us 10 GB for our high speed downloads.  After I used the 10 GB I had another download that was 21.91 GB.  I started it after the first 10 GB was used and the download took 97 hours, that's 4 1/2 days to download.
     
    Seeings as how all the previous versions of FALLOUT Games were PC games, with no link to anyone else's computer, not even in a LAN set up to play against each other in teams on local computers, and did not require any online account.
     
    I would not mind having the complete Fallout series without the link to an outside server like STEAM.
     
    Since there is NO HARD COPY, NO THANKS!

      Make your own hard copy. Download once. Burn to Blu-Ray. Done. Use those installers the next time you want to play, and they'll work even if GoG vanished from the planet.

      You are complaining about something purely based on your own experience. In the UK most broadband is truly unlimited so we have no usage caps. It's also rather fast. Digital is the way of the future, your internet just hasn't caught up yet.

      I'm surprised that there are still countries with limits on their broadbands. I live in a shitty european country with a shitty internet connection, but I have no limit whatsoever. In any case, if you want hard copies your best bet are retail stores or sites like Amazon. GOG and Steam, like most modern on-line retailers, only offer digital downloads of games.

      Ironically it's because the internet infrastructure in "shitty" EU countries is actually much newer than ours so it's likely all been built with high speed in mind from the start. Ours wasn't. 130 years ago when they strung cheap copper wire up everywhere for terrible voice quality phone calls, nobody even knew what a computer was

      So we still have plenty of pockets where the infrastructure is 50+ years old and simply can't handle the speeds modern internet use requires.

      Because of a very wise old professor I know I removed the content of this post to save some electricity.

      Yup, and it's not just the EU... I live in one of those "pockets" in Canada, and it really sucks. Old copper phone lines that can't handle DSL, so over-the-air internet off of cell towers is the only option and bandwidth is horribly expensive... $10/GB. So a big 20GB game like Dragon Age Origins that can be purchased on GOG for pittance will cost $200 to download. Don't want to play it quite THAT badly, so it'll sit in my library until I can download it from somewhere else.

      GOG is great in this sort of situation though, as you can download a game once, put it safely away on DVD, and then never have to download it ever again. As far as I'm aware, it's the only digital marketplace that's even remotely friendly to people like us.

      And the electricity debt adds another few sparks to the cost because the computer has to be on 24/7 to download the digital content. MASS EFFECT: Andromeda is 59.9 GB.

      It will take 10 days to download if the Wireless Tower doesn't get so bogged down with customers when our download speeds are a maximum of 90.0 Kilobytes per second is the same as 720.0 Kilobits per second. That speed is a little better then the phone line modem I had that used to get; which in my case was 56.6 KiloBytes per second is the same as 452.8 Kilobits per second.

      Unless the service is providing a constant steady flow speed at least 1.5 Mb per second the famous CRC software can make the downloading of Data increase as much as 10 fold on occasions. I downloaded a 2.6 GB patch. For the first 0.6 GB it was fine, but the server does a CRC after 0.5 GB or 0.6 GB to test the contents clean or now. Because the line was down 40.0 KiloBytes (320.0 Kilobits) it lost the CRC test stream and restarted the download 10 times from the beginning.

      Sorry man. I live in the Caribbean and we only have those sorts of prices and limits on mobile data. Our cable internet network (glass or copper) is much faster and cheaper than that.

      @Sexyowl Thanks to you I remembered; If all I wanted was a bunch of old CD/DVD games to add to a collection, or because I miss sharing my love with my favorite game, whose disk I wore out putting it in and pulling out of the tray so many times, because it had to be in the machine's CD/DVD player all the time, I would just go to the Salvation Army, St. Vincent De Paul, or Habitat for Humanity where they sell Reusable stuff all the time.

      All three of those stores and some shop owners with a mind to sell their antiquated stuff are within walking distance. I could find tons of CD/DVD games for 10 cents that GOG is providing.

      Hey! I just realized I don't have to swim or boat to get anywhere. At least not until Global warming floods the flatlands near the plateau's where everyone will boat to if the water returns to the area that hasn't been here for MILLIONs of Years. Am Not laughing.

      Yes, and no. BD-media wont last for an eternity. So in 25 years when you want to play your "hard copy" of a game, and GoG isn't around, your media might not be that helpful.
      Continuesly updating your stored game media, would be the way to go, but honestly, that is probably easier said then done. My choice would be local harddrive copy, along with a cloud-based storage solution. The harddrive may fail, and the cloud based storage may fial, but both, at the same time, is unlikely.

    Seems they have forgotten the users in the transition to the NEW site. No updates for over a month is ridiculous.

      Nexus is doing a complete overhaul of the site's UI, to make it look less... slapped together, and to better complement the new mod manager.

      Oh, sorry not mad. Annoyed maybe. I think going dark and then saying everyone is committed to something else isn't the best way to transition. I just quit playing FO4 which is the only thing I needed NEXUS for and went back to playing ESO at Zenimax. They bury you with information to keep you interested.
