    Strange. A Hat In Time was for 50% off earlier today, now it's only 10% off.

    Is this normal for GOG?

    The star system sounds a lot more enticing before you realize that most of what GOG (or any games store) has in their catalogue is shovelware and hipster indie games.

    Hacknet is actually pretty interesting, maybe give it a try?

    Everything else is indeed garbage though. RIP.

    I know that buying Morrowind was a Sin, but why it only lets me download german installers of all things?

    That problem is not exclusive for this game. If you try to download installers via Galaxy then, even though you selected "Preferable language: English" it still pick other languages.
    In GOG Downloader you start the app, go to your library and choose Downloaders links for different languages and that's it. Some cashuals might cry that "it's harder than RMB on the title and clicking Install, bawwwww" but fuck them, it worked while Galaxy have problem with it. Because everyone have massive amounts of free space (but they did not asked them if they want to waste it on games) and fast internet without data cap, that's only something in third world countries with monopoly internet provider or whatever.

    And Beth stopped giving their old games more than 50% discount even though I paid half the current price on the sale (16 potatoes vs 32 right now).

    Yep.
    That's what I did eventually.

    Never had this happen for me before.

    Make sure your Steam profile is set to public when you refresh. You can put it back to private once you've received the games.

    In my case it needed two or three days to actually refresh.

    ELEX currently 33% off. Tempting, but not yet cheap enough when it still has 'bronze' status on Winedb.

    Why would anyone delete a game from Steam? Even when drunk?

    To sort the wheat from the chaff? I have some painful memories in my steam library, which I wouldn't mind getting rid of. Shame you can't gift old games with less than a certain amount of play time.

    Well, you do have favorites option, and IIRC option to hide titles you don't care about.
    I can understand the painful memories part, I have several myself, but I still would never permanently delete a title.

    I had no idea you could delete games from your steam account. VERY tempted to delete some garbage bundle fodder, but I will probably just continue hoarding it. Also, GOG connect finally updated and added my games so everybody can rest easy now.
