I believe GOG sooner or later brings more Bethesda games to their "shop".

ZeniMax would rather create their own platform instead of offering their games DRM free...

It"s only a matter of time till they bring back the "paid" mods for their franchises, I dont think GOG could accommodate that.

I have Steam, Origin, GOG Galaxy, and Uplay. And I hate them all. I'd rather have everything with Steam (easily because its the first service and the biggest by market share), its so cumbersome to have 4 clients running and updating all the time.

Idk, GoG could finally give into DRM one day. Never say never.

 

All it takes is one slip and they'd never go back to being "DRM free".


Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

Oh that's right, I did pick up the GOG version on one of those sales. Good reminder. Definitely need to make the move to SSD, as I'm due for an HD crash one of these days.

Didn't take long - on the exact day I planned to back up data, Windows got corrupted and wouldn't boot nor restore. Have an SSD now, much faster but does an odd freeze after some time of idleness. Also, reinstalled Bloodlines, and got that working, finally, this time a slightly different fix from a slightly different problem than before. Fun. Now onto trying to save data, if possible.

You could alter the power options of your SSD drive (device manager).

If your unlucky, you might have to reinstall Windows. Had a similar issue with an old installation and new drives and mainboard, but I couldn't fix it with new drivers or different settings.

For some reason I don't seem to get notifications anymore when someone posts a comment under any of my workshop submissions. Anyone know what could cause this? It's annoying having to constantly cycle through all of my crap just to see if someone commented on something.

No luck. Seem to be stuck with the issue as well. Not a big problem, as of yet though. Thanks for the reply.

About Bloodlines: I bought one of those jewel-case(no big box) versions of Bloodlines back in 2007 and to my surprise, it did not need a patch. I installed and played it and it worked right out of the box, from start to finish.

 

Edit: this is the one I'm talking about.

That image is so slow to load. Feels like 56 kbps up in here. Cool though - did you recently play it or do you mean back in 2007? The steam version has no game breaking bugs for me that people say is the reason you must install the fan patch. Just the thing needs to be defibrillated back to life to get it going, plus resolution and texture tweaks or it's just a blurry mess.

I played it back in 2007. No game breaking bugs at all.

 

I recently installed the Steam version WITH the fan patch and I must say, it pays off. The visuals become a whole lot more bearable.

For an old game, it does look anazing still in 4k, along with Red Faction: Guerilla (normal version).

GoG, always. Prefer to have a game DRM free.
Besides, most new games on GoG are cheaper thanks to their regional pricing.

Yeah. I've always preferred those photo realistic textures of that era, along with the GTAs and such, especially for urban environments. It's simpler but more effective and immersive and it just plain looks better.

The Source Engine is underrated and produced some of the best animations in games til this day. I wish devs still used it.
