Now FREE on GOG: Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire and Worlds of Ultima: Martian Dreams!
So is http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/ultima_4/
Why not just link the whole slew of free games?
Also: Awesome thanks for the heads up Spoony!
Ahh good, another chance to beg Spoony to play Savage Empire, my personal favorite Ultima game!
Seriously, it’s really, really good. On par with Ultima 7 and UU.
I was never old enough to try these games not even getting my first pc till 1999, thank you GOG for helping me play these awesome games I missed. And thanks for the heads up spoony.
Nice! Just downloaded it now. I have played all the main storyline Ultima games, but never had the chance to play the Worlds of Ultima games
That’s cool but… what are they? I mean I’m not expecting a full-on review, but I haven’t heard of Ultima at all until Spoony started reviewing them one by one. So I really have no idea what I’m getting into or what it’s about.
Wow! Thanks Spoony! I might not have noticed otherwise. A bit odd that you’d be the one to remind me, but I’ll take what communication I can get from Spoon the almight-y!
Ultima 4 is also available for free.
Oh yes, I have been waiting for this. Getting the games free is better than I hoped for.
Wow, all this time I considered The savage empire one of my favorite games of all time and, I never realised that it was named, Ultima Worlds: The Savage Empire.
Ty for educating me.
Thank you for the notice. ^_^ I’ll play those after Ulitima 4, which I got for free from gog.com too. Lucky me.
Well now you have no excuse not to review these games Spoony. Get on it!
Awesome. How about Ultima Underworld/Underworld 2 getting some love? I know Spoony hated it, but it was a proto-Daggerfall, which was cool.
He did Ultima Underworld 1 & 2
I meant GOG, for free. I know Spoony did them.
FINE, I’ll pay $6 for both of them.
kool i’ll get them just now. thanks spoony
sweet, now ill have a better idea of what youre talking about
Spoony,now you will have to review those after 9.hey at least you will get a good break from U9.
PS:what about your review of Minority Report:Everybody Runs ? I’m still waiting for that
Miniority report, i was hoping for an overview review covering the rest of the Atmosphere Series…. i know he used all his material on first game… but surely (i mean these are the games that no one will talk about… except the 1st) so maybe if he condensed them all into 1 big video it could work. maybe get Dr insano to find the Cursed Games & then he decided to use SCIENCE to anaylise all of the games to harness there power (thus would be consise even comparitive)… while being pestered by The Gate Cleaner,Insano Jr, Spoony & Oreo,…. maybe any other cameos who willing… maybe Son of Insano is the 1 who finds the games he seems cheerful enought to be curious “rickdedee!” I see potential.
Just grabbed them. Now I have to work my way up to them. I’m on Ultima 2 right now.
That sounds like I’d have fun.
… Nuh. Nuh Idyunwanna.
Is it a “sign” that gog keeps giving more and more Ultima games for free?
sooo…that means were gunna get some reviews in the future…right?….right?
GOG is amazing
Where are the updates? I don’t mean to sound impatient; I’m one of the more understanding fans, but you have a bunch of E3 stuff ready to upload (you even said so a few days ago). There is basically no editing required… (Ultima 9 I can understand though).
Am I the only one who saw the word Ultima in the title and went “FUCK YES UPDAT-….awwwww darn it”
I’d say that should be a yes seeing how title clearly says, ” Worlds of Ultima games now on Gog.com” and below that is a single line of text with no video. I say should because apparently 2 people like you just skim through everything they read and assume the best.
Don’t make me love and tolerate you mister grumpy pants, I’m a fierce bear hugger.
Sorry, I didn’t mean for that to come across that dickish.
You were threatened to be loved and tolerated to death… Go for it! Sounds better then most marriages out there!
That’s just how the human mind works. Certain words or phrases will jump out before we actually read the whole thing or consciously try to read. It’s just how we’ve evolved. So don’t be a dick! Or else the bees will sting you to death.
NOT THE BEES! NOT THE BEES!! Oh God they’re in my eyes!!!!
Just ask anyone.
Bees… my god.
nope, felt the same.
I saw the word Ultima in the title and went “YES!” and then I saw free games and went “FUCK YES!”
I already knew about the free games, so yeah I was disappointed =(. Look on the bright side, now Spoony has no excuse not to play the games and possibly review them in the future =3 who knows =3
But will it teach me what a Paladin is?
I was wondering the same. After the Ultima 9 review, I’ve really wanted to know what a Paladin is. I hope part 2 will tell us.
We actually had this guy in our D&D group who tried introducing himself as “A Paladin” (He hadn’t thought up a name for his character yet) and it came out as “I’m, er…I’m a paddelin’.” To which we immedietly responded with “Well then where’s your BOAT!?”
Two weeks later I glanced at his sheet, and it said “Name: James A’padalin.”
I’m not entierely sure…
I thought that was the Genie’s pet name for Aladdin…
I logged into my account and it already had ultima 4 on it so im gunna play it thanks spoony :)
Be sure to download the Ultima 4 upgrade. It’s free and it improves the graphics dramatically!
go here, http://ultima.wikia.com/wiki/Ultima_IV_Upgrade_Patch and download the upgrade, then install it and have fun!
I got an email one weekend from GOG about how the Ultima and Wing Commander series were on sale for like two dollars per game or something, and I immediately thought, ‘hey, it’s the Spoony Sale!’
Well… You did say you were going to play them sometime, didn’t you Spoony? =P
Just a few heads up. These games don’t seem to be cracked. meaning you need the reading materials, which are referenced and questioned in the game, downloaded and probably printed out these are provided on GOG for free. Also, the game bombed when running on flat windows 7 for me. I changed it to run in Windows XP compatibility mode and it worked. Also, for newer gamers this will be a frustrating game as it is a typing commands based game, you will be in conversations and not know what the character will understand if you ask a question.
Dude, Ultima VI itself is free…
Where? In GOG you can buy the IV, V, VI bundle, but i dont see a standalone version of VI thats free anywhere.
Comes with a free game bundle that’s given to new accounts.
You get IV, not VI.
are you sure its VI? when i started i got ultima IV
…This is good news. I’ve wanted to play these ever since I got hooked on Ultima 7 last year.
Thank you for pointing this out! As an added bonus, I can finally re-install Deus Ex!
Oops. Double post.
…and to think people ask why I like GOG.
Thanks for the info!

My videos will not be on TGWTG for a while. I’ve been suspended for 4 weeks for misconduct. I agree with the decision.
What the hell is up with that? And what kind of misconduct can you perform on TGWTG exactly? Did he feel up Nostalgia Critic?
Maybe he sat on Linkara’s hat. So, will spoony review the two free games?
Not to be bitchy or anything like that, but does that mean we won’t be seeing Ultima IX Part II in that time slot?
Also, how the fuck do you suspend one of the most (if not *the* most) popular reviewer on the website(aside from NC obviously)? What did you do? Rape beary and then made Angry Joe calm down?
It just means his vids won’t be on tgwtg, there’s nothing stopping him from posting on his own site relax. It’s probably because of his twitter outrage pissing everyone off.
I don’t really read Twitter, what was it about?
Thanks for the info. I got Fallout 1 a little while ago from gog for free too, i’m starting to like them ;)
Probably his tweets annoying people. He’s incredibely caught up in his own misery, ‘Assemblage 23 – Sorry’ comes to mind. I really enjoy Spoony’s videos but dear god those tweets, he seems to think he’s the only person who has ever been depressed and in need of pharmaceuticals. And expecting to get better without going to therapy.
I totally agree with you fella. C’mon Spoony snap out of it!!! We all had our bad moments in our life… Mate, all these people (me first) are here because you are someone (you’re funny as hell, brilliant, your reviews are great and well made).
These games are cool and all, but like The Spoony One said, they use the U6 engine. *shudder* I only really played 3 and 6 as a kid and I’m really not sure how I managed the latter.
So spoony how come you didnt talk about these games?
So is Ultima 4, by the way.
I’ve always wanted to play these games ever since you mentioned them so thanks for the annoucment :) There’s only ooone tiny propblem. I can’t get the savage empire to start. It gives me the dosbox screen and a blinking line but I can’t do anything. Am I just a moron who doesn’t know how to start a game or has anyone else had these propblems. Or am I the only one? Please help me!
You need to run them as Administrator because of how these games work. Otherwise you will just get, as you said, a blinking line.
Thank you for posting this, I grabbed them up post-haste. I am getting rather addicted to that site.
I hope after he’s done with ascension he’ll review these too.
Thanks for posting this link, I downloaded them both. Gog is making me excited to play games again.
They also have Ultima IV for free as well.
Ultima 4 is also free on there and collections 1-3 and 4-6 as well as 7 and 8 each for 6 bucks. I highly recommend it guys. Oh and spoony thanks for Making me aware of these games, I have been beating my head on the keyboard with ultima for 3 hours. You shoulda mentioned how you just get gang raped in the dungeons.
