Nah, it was as expected, Q1 '18. Since the game is not out I don't care much about having a key right now. I'll go with GoG most probably. Apart from the drm free stuff, for some reason GoG's versions are more compressed making the files smaller and faster to download. Installing might take some more time but downloading faster is the plus imo.

GOG, obviously. Since Galaxy became a thing, and games autoupdate I see not reason to purchase new games via steam anymore.

 

April is too far away to get excited about it beyond a “thumbs up”. In the same manner, I really don’t need a key for another two months, so no, it doesn’t bother me in the slightest.

I already have Pillars 1 on GOG, so I'm going to add Pillars 2 there as well.

 

Since the keys will only become relevant on April 3, when the download becomes available, I don't care about them yet at all. Until the downloads start (I don't think they do pre-loads), the keys are "useless".

Same - game keys are only become useful to me when they can be redeemed for a functional game, at any point in time before that I don't care whether I have it or not.

In the past I wanted to support Steam with their approach to Steam-Boxes with Linux (in hope this would boost gaming on Linux a bit) - and GOG didn't have Linux support for quite a while (now they have). Since I'm a loyal simpleton I'll stick with Steam unless they make me really angry. So far I'm pretty satisfied with Steam though.

I appreciate GOGs commitment to make things work. Since steam introduced refunds, it is much less of a worry, but warm feeling toward GOG didn’t evaporate just yet. After all, it is thanks to GOG’s Icewind Dale2 copy that I was finally able to play it - other copies had some unsolved problem with direct draw, which made it unplayable for me for many years.

 

I don’t have much against steam, but I tend to favour GOG when given a choice.

GoG.

 

Steam would clash with my strict “no Steam” policy.

GOG is easier for me since I travel a lot but I have games on every client/web store and will continue to do so as long as it benefits me. I never understood being loyal to a company as the consumer but I've read millennials have less brand loyalty than older generations so maybe I'm just cliche

Huh.

 

Odd they're releasing keys two months in advance, but I suppose doing it now might reduce administrative headaches on launch day.

Also, people were already asking for them, so they got that off their backs too. :p

 

My account says I will get a 'digital download' so I don't know if that means a key of my choice? Not sure, or if just directly download from Obsidian in April. Does anyone have this? Thanks.

You have a choice of generating steam or gog key. You should be able to grab yours already via backer portal/My Products.
