Good Old Games

Recommended Posts

Stellaris is now on GOG.

 

Here's hoping this is only the beginning and we'll see the complete Paradox catalog there. It's at least a step towards regaining goodwill after the whole Gamersgate debacle.

 

I'm tempted to buy it again.

 

(and something something about voting for a giveaway)

 

Wanna bet Shadow Warrior 2 ends up being the game we'll get? It's the only one I already have and I usually get lucky with these things. :p

It's a bit of a surprise Vic2 isn't there already since it was the last of their 'classic' games not tied to steam.

 

There are meant to be a fair few 'big' releases (Bioshocks, Onlivion etc) coming in this sale, but a lot of them have been rumoured for ages so may or may not actually turn up

I must have missed it, what Paradox done during GG?

I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future.

More importantly, who actually cares? Because 213374U's post is worded like majority does. ... Like, who of y'all remembers the time where GOG purposefully cut paying customer's access to their games for a publicity stunt? Edited by Fenixp

Are people really still mad about GoG going offline for one day, 8 years ago, and disguising it as a joke, during a board update?

My point exactly, internet forgets fast, regardless of whether it was a bunch of dumb tweets or behavior that actually purposefully harmed paying customer.

Well I for sure I am not that concerned about that, althrough I understand that cutting off access to your games is at least weird marketing move.

See, that's exactly what I wrote about GG, in a more complicated manner. Because no, nobody cares anymore. About either of the two.

 

Incidentally, it was like 3 days and GOG started the whole thing by announcing they're going under, which was pretty ****ty handling of the situation by any standards.

Speak for yourself man, I was interested in GG. :)

My bad. The article is dated 22 Sep 10, which was a Wednesday, and the article continues with:

 

The Good Old Games website will relaunch at 8 a.m. Eastern time Thursday...

So I thought is was only 1 day but I now see that it went down the Sunday before.

Um. I was actually referring to Paradox's abandonment of and eventual divestment from their own DRM-free storefront, Gamersgate, and going Steam-exclusive (forcing Gamersgate CK2 buyers to adopt Steam if they wanted to keep their games supported). This was after running their mouth on how great DRM-free was and how evil/crappy Steam was, which didn't earn them much sympathy among their fans, back then. 

 

I guess if you missed this, the confusion is understandable. Still, I wouldn't be so quick to jump to conclusions that "nobody cares" simply because I'm unaware of something.

All right, that's crappy and worthy of attention, I do apologize. I'm not entirely sure how is it in any way relevant to GG, then again, GG was apparently about absolutely everything, yet 99% of it was completely irrelevant and ignorable BS, thus the reaction.

Yes. It's not relevant to GG at all, and you're not the first to be confused by the unfortunate coincidence. It just happened to be a completely different mess with a very similar keyword happening at roughly the same time.

 

I didn't care much about "GG" either, but was rather pissed about Paradox and Gamersgate. And I didn't even own CK2 on Gamersgate, just some other PDX titles... and Alpha Protocol.

 

In any case, it seems they are at the very least reconsidering their stance on DRM, as Galaxy probably allows them to do their constant patching routine just as well as Steam.

Everyone knows Direct 2 Drive is the best storefront anyway. That's where I bought Neverwinter Nights 2 and Thief: Deadly Shadows.

I was one of those people who had to move CK2 to Steam and was not at all happy about it. I was even less happy when Steam started breaking my mods until I figured out I could launch the game without Steam which lead to another problem because I couldn't play anything that needed Steam because it would then automatically patch CK2 even though it was set not to. Eventually it worked as intended but those were dark times and didn't build any good will towards Paradox or Steam.

To reiterate:

 

GamerSgate (GG)= storefront established in 2007(?) mostly for selling Paradox games and originally owned by Johan A, Fred Wester etc

 

Gamergate (also GG)= term coined by Adam Baldwin referring to the clash between people wanting ethics in games journalism/ return all culture to the stone age vs brave progressive free thinkers/ hypocritical corporate culture warriors

 

I'm pretty sure GG the store tried to get people to use a different term at various times as they- unsurprisingly- ended up being targeted by people who couldn't tell the difference.

 

Potentially the worst ethical part of the Paradox CK2 GG fiasco apart from Paradox persistently lying to customers was that they sold Gamersgate before going steam exclusive, potentially shafting whoever bought it. It's also the primary reason I still loathe Steam and don't trust them so far as I could throw GabeN; as Paradox was going to do their own client- parts of which ended up in the GG CK2 version- but were told if they did they'd be kicked from steam as EA was.
