    Now i'm checking out Chaser

    Honestly, I don't know if I'll play any of these games long term. You know... all the way through.
    Aquanox 2 is by Jo Wood and I've read a lot of bad experiences with games by them.

    I ended up buying Aquanox 1
    It may not be spetacular, but for $1.50 hopefully its entertaining.
    I'm going to try running it on my Chromebook

    Jowood didn't make games, they were a publisher. They published both the Gothic series and Spellforce series, which are excellent games. However, they also ruined the Gothic series by getting a completely unknown developer to make an expansion for Gothic 3 which was beyond horrible. I sometimes got the impression they were lucky to sit on the rights to some very good series, but didn't understand the games and made bad decisions as a result.

    Oh, that right...
    One game I bought at Target for $10.00 was somehow related to Jo Wood and it didn't run in Windows at all.
    I did some research to see if there was a patch or anything and the developers didn't exist anymore and Jo Wood never fixed the problem. After more research I found that this was a common problem.
    So I've tried to stay away from anything Jo Wood published.
    I only have a small number of games on their list and bought them on GOG.
    So that's good.
    I have Arx Fatalis, Gothic II & 3, Painkiller and Torchlight
