    Fallout was also $10, but I guess the point of them being easily accessible now is to be picked up while on sale.

    Not that I'll pay any of these fuckers $10 when they haven't shown any signs of actually deserving it, but I'll grab it on sale and pay only that amount as an appreciation for giving me access to DRM-free version of these games.

    Rune: Classic is currently on a heavy special. Would recommend multiplayer, and apparently it can be played in coop with mods.

    To try to shed some light on this: An unnamed vampire-themed game is about to arrive on GOG, and to celebrate its release they're doing a themed presentation (read: not a sale) on vampire-based games.

    Since it's unlikely they'll go through all of this for a retro vampire title (of which I can think of a few, most notably Veil of Darkness) I'm guessing it's something more modern, possibly even a new entry in the VtM series.

    In preparation of the sale I wanted to clean up and neat down my library so I shot an email to the GOG support to remove a few games that I either got for free and will never play or various duplicates (I don't need vanilla TW3 or W2 if I have the GOTY editions for example).

    This is what they replied:

    What the actual fuck? What kind of mickey mouse digital store are they running if they can't remove items from my library without "workarounds"?

    I use the Hide function for all the games I also own on Steam and it works pretty well. The games really are hidden, if you do a search in your library they don't show up.

    GOG switched me back over to Euros even though I had it set to US Dollars - seems they reset the settings every time there's a big sale.

    At least they didn't use the opportunity to sneak in a price hike.

    Nothing interesting on sale for me this time round - but that's par for the course now.

    200% agree with you. I also requested the deletion of some games a few months ago and got the same answer: "there is no clean way". That said, they can and will remove games from your account if you insist, whine, cry about it. They've done it for me once and also for some other people. But they always try to dissuade you from it, and want you to "hide" them instead. I don't get it. What kind of fucked up software are they using, that this is such a pain in the ass to do??

    It's honestly fucked up. They upgraded their online store, they made a game client, they made a cloud storage... they build in all kinds of faggotry - but not an option to delete games from your account. "Almost impossible". I mean WTF?!

    @ Infinitron: "Hiding" the game might work for some, but not for everyone. Sometimes you just want some games gone completely... that pile of shame, garbage games, or whatever reason it may be.
