As much as I like GOG, Steam makes it really easy to re-download my library when I make room for other stuff or change computers. That's where I'll be playing.

Steam.  I use the Steam overlay with every game.

GOG only, if I can help it. I'm fed up with Steam when it comes to sharing games. Sure, you can share your library, but you can't play with others with the same game, at the same time. With GOG, I can "lend" the game to my brother, just like in the CD-no DRM times.

I´ll go with GOG. As I´m a strong supporter of DRM-free gaming this isn´t a surprise, is it? :D

Why do we need such a download portal in the first place?

Because Obsidian got no way to offer the installers as a download from their own side! (they don´t got that massive bandwidth)

Therefor Blizzard has a Bittorrent distribution in their launcher frontends (besides their surely bigger servers. But you can rent a cloudfront/aws/… distribution network for the expected spike in the next few weeks.)

I always been a big GoG fan but I might go with steam on this one. I haven't have many paid steam games in my collection. As much as I hate DRM, steam offers pre-load and quick update.

PoE won't have any DRM attached to it on Steam...

 

But I guess people will never learn that.

I love achievements, which is a plus for steam but I will still go with GoG because I simply like them better.

- How can I live my life if I can't even tell good from evil?

- Eh, they're both fine choices. Whatever floats your boat.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

my tier has 2 keys so i get 1 each and i dont need to worry about a thing


The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

Going with Steam for Auto-Update and Pre-load.  I will buy another copy soon from gog though.  DRM free is delicious.  Once gog gets their Galaxy app out of beta... then I will likely go gog every time when given the choice.

Steam. Because I was less than happy with my GoG version of Wasteland 2. Missed a patch, the next one wasn't compatible with my version any more, had to download the full client again instead of a few MB. Sucks if you're on a slow DSL connection.

 

I love GoG, but usually only buy older titles from them.

 

GoG support in this case sends the link to the missing patch by e-mail, if you ask them nicely.

GoG; because I don't like that Steam maintains ownership of your games. Any time they decide to pull the plug or think you've done something wrong on your account, you lose everything. With GoG you buy it and it's yours and they can't take it away.

 

The concerns regarding GoG and their patching mechanism will be resolved once they ship the Galaxy client.

Agreed. I don't see why we can't DL it separately and just keep in on a USB key or disc or the like if it's DRM free anyway. That's one of the reasons I backed it on KS.

Does the steam version force you to open the game through their launcher(steamworks)? Or is steam just used as a platform?

I think you need to launch through Steam (hence the "DRM" part)

Oh darn. I was hoping for the latter like wasteland 2. GOG it is then.

Steam, because GOG is taking too damn long to finish their launcher/patcher.
