If you've gotten excited at the thought of the many six degrees of freedom games that are coming out over the next year or so, your eye might have run over the original Descent games. And that's a good thing, because they're excellent titles that hold up exceptionally well today even without HD texture packs and fan patches.

But if you've looked for the game lately, you might have noticed it's no longer available on Good Old Games. And it's supposed to be pulled from Steam shortly too -- because Interplay, which has the rights to sell the originals, allegedly hasn't paid royalties for 8 years.
