So what I just read is buy it on steam, again
Nope. You're being too specific.
It's up to the person to decide what version's for them.
For some people - yes, they're always going to go for Steam-version. Even if it's just for +1's.
For me - eh, maybe Steam; maybe not; maybe DRM-FREE. We'll see. Depends on different factors.
I'd rather have Riddick: Dark Athena on GOG than Steam b/c of annoying DRM reasons (i.e. Tages' Online Activation + limited activations is crap).
Tages DRM is NOT in the GOG versions.
I'd rather have Deadly Premonition on Steam b/c that version's still more updated on Steam than on GOG.
In some instances, I'll buy from a place like Humble Bundle to get a game both DRM-FREE + on Steam. You know, the "Best of Both Worlds" thing that I mention quite a bit.
Again - this is a game-by-game thing for me.

Thanks. I'm new to all of this. I guess isthereanydeal notifications aren't too reliable for GOG due to the nature of the sales? I've been trying to get both Shadowrun games and keep missing them.
Depends on lots of things.
Depends your feelings of DRM; thoughts of GOG extras (often they might have more extras than Steam-versions, if Steam doesn't offer the extras as DLC or something of that sort); if there's one version that's in better shape than the others; if you want to deal w/ GOG not having a client yet (to do auto-updates and others things - updating can be a pain w/ GOG versions i.e. see Outcast); another version might be updated more so somewhere else (i.e. Deadly Premonition has more updates on Steam; GOG version is still lagging behind); maybe you prefer Steam client stuff (Steam is nice for updating, backing up stuff, time-tracking, match-making online games, etc); and other madness. Weigh the options.
I'd say - take it on a case-by-case thing.
Do you like Steam? Then, expect deals to be better and/or more frequent on Steam-versions - especially on regular editions of games (that are without extras).
If game you looking for is being bundled (on places like HumbleBundle, BundleStars, IndieGala, etc), you'll likely find more Steam-versions out there than anything - so it's definitely possible those version will be likely a bit cheaper in the Cesspool (The CAG trade forums); and/or better off buying the game you want in a bundle cheap that might have other games coming with it (that you could sell/trade over in the Cesspool or just straight-up add what you're missing to your Steam account to play or +1).
About SrR + Dragonfall in particular - depends how you want to roll the dice here. Depends on if you want to chance maybe getting it for FREE on GOG during this sale; depends on if you really want a GOG version; really want it on Steam; want both DRM-FREE + Steam-keys; or whatever. Humble Store has something of interest there w/ those. Shadowrun Returns & Shadowrun Dragonfall there on Humble Store are offered with one purchase both the Steam-key version + a DRM-FREE download directly from them.
