Who in their right mind PMs people on GOG? Friends list on GOG, what. Crazy talk I tell you.
"What" ain't no country I've ever heard of. They speak English in What?

I thought Spoder was talking about the Star Trek games....like he couldn't communicate with Spock or something....

And they changed the wood bookshelf graphic, heresy!

 

With them pushing Galaxy, I guess the old downloader is no longer an option? Nevermind, found the "GOG downloader links" button.

So...instead of listening to the feedback from people who would like the bookshelf view in the Galaxy client, they change the webshelf to the shitty Galaxy version.  Problem solved!

I buy from GOG just for the nostalgia factor. I loved the shelf and MY order, I loved to look at those digital boxes. Now I can't see any point buying from them anymore. Hope they fix it, until then, bye GOG!

 

BTW, I don't care about the "galaxy" client, I'd rather get my shelf back.

Their whole schtick and clientele is people clinging to the 20th century for dear life. That fako digital shelf completely inappropriate for the media it represents was the cheese that the digital download bitter pills were shoved in to hide them from people kicking and screaming refusing to join the 21st century.

 

Getting rid of that phoney comfort for that crowd can't end well.

DAMMIT GOG!!! I want to feel like I'm in MysterD's basement...they really need to add a slight sheen to the boxes on the bookshelf to show that the boxes are still in the shrink...

They totally need to allow you to use your own "pic holding the box" for each game!

I'm greedy - give me both my wood-shelf and the "Galaxy" client.

We don't play games on CAG; we backlog 'em. ;)

No wonder we have no time to play games!

All we do is keep buying games; run games idly for cards; keep backlogging games; & talk about games on CAG Forums + gaming forums like it.

Not sure if it was mentioned already but you can start pre-loading The Witcher 3 (26 GB) via your browser, GOG downloader, or Galaxy.

 

EDIT - Decided to try out Galaxy. Can't seem to find a way to pause downloads or set bandwidth limits. I feel that they should have at least launched with all the features available in the GOG downloader.

The client is a complete disaster and the fact that they threw it out in such a sorry condition just speaks volumes about GOG right now.

GOG is going to be giving away 8,000 keys for Rise of the Triad 2013 tomorrow morning. You'll need a reddit account. 

 

They previously had a giveaway for this game so you may already own it on GOG.

 

This is for a stress test so the window is fairly tight and not great timing for us in the US.

 

To give you time to grab your key, we'll announce the giveaway on reddit.com/r/patientgamers from the official /u/GOGcom account, at 11:00 AM GMT / 1:00 PM CET / 4:00 AM PT / 7:00 AM ET. You'll have three hours to send us a PM and receive a reply. Just as we finish the giveaway (at 2:00 PM GMT / 4:00 PM CET / 7:00 AM PT / 10:00 AM ET) you will have precisely 20 minutes to redeem it - yup, we want all of you to redeem your codes at the same time and really give our infrastructure a workout.

I don't really care about any of the non-features the Galaxy client has, only wanted it as a way to keep all my GoG games in one place. I do wish they had a way to pause downloads, but whatever.

Fucking <continent I'm not allowed to mention without getting reported to mods redacted>!

 

I guess I own it from the last time they gave it away. Hey, I can't be expected to keep track of what free shit I own on GOG. I pay even less attention to what I own there than what I own on Steam even though I own 40x as many games on Steam.

I buy games on GOG I honestly intend on playing and out of like 211 games I own on there I've played like 6 of them so the same can be said for me too I guess I mean all those +3s and +5s from bundles are immediately more interesting even if most of them are hot shit than $6 game from 20 years ago that is already on Steam and probably been in like a bundle for like $1 I can play while offline even though Steam has offline mode.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
