GOG.com releases Deep Silver and Nordic titles from DRM shackles
It's often regarded as one of the worst PC ports of all time, but things are finally looking up for 2009's Saints Row 2.
As part of their 'unchained' initiative, the good folks over at GOG.com have worked their freaky magic on what was one of the most hastily ported console games in recent memory, reportedly getting it to work 'flawlessly' on modern PCs. Not bad for a game which used to require a fan-made patch just to run properly.
The series has taken a decidedly wackier turn since then, with Saints Row IV being brilliantly preposterous from start to finish. Still, it's always nice to look back and see how things used to be.
Also released from their DRM cages are Metro: Last Light Redux, Saints Row: The Third, and Darksiders 1 & 2, all available now from GOG.com.
