    I'm just going to buy expansions for my existing games for now.
    Plenty of stuff on Steam that I'm interested in that's too "niche" for GOG anyway.

    And here I thought the main page changes were related to the 10 year sale and would be temporary. Nevertheless, the redesign can be salvaged it if they:

    1) bring back the "news" section to the top;
    2) provide a link to the weekly sales page and other seasonal sales instead of those squares. Curiously enough the links still exist if you check the related news posts.
    3) cut down on the javascript. The front page is non-functional if you have it disabled by default.

    It isn't all bad, still stand by the revamped review system although it is baffling how they lost a couple of them in the process and removed line breaks from the existing ones.

    The fact that weekly sales are buried is inscrutable. As it is, I cba to check out any sale except for things on my wishlist. I won't even bother with any sale except the big ones when nearly everything is on sale now. Looking through the sales as they are presented now wastes too much time and is too annoying.

    New site design is "awesome" - I posted a review of Legend of Grimrock and it vanished along with the "write a review" button. GOG support told me that it is a common problem and they are working on it.

    I guess that 10th anniversary must have took them by surprise and they did not manage to test the new site on time, or even show it to someone with any sense of aesthetics.

    Except you have to scroll down and click through pages and pages of stuff. Instead of having a handy list ready like it was before. You can access the handy list, but you have to scroll all the way down to the news posts and find the article for the sale, click that and click the link in the article. That's what I mean by needlessly obtuse. It's not hard, just not elegant and has too many pointless clicks.

    When you check out the "Now on sale" section, you will see a total of 21 games discounted. There currently are 33 games discounted.

    All your screenshot proves is what a complete and utter failure the redesign is.

    Clicking on the Sales tab is one click, and it is under the top Store tab. They can't shove everything in one page, so obviously some of them has to be put under a different tab.

    The other day I noticed that GOG's new code monkeys accidentally reversed the "helpful" review ratings for a day or so. In other words, if 10 out of 50 GOGers actually found a review helpful, the system reversed the numbers and showed that 40 out of 50 thought the review was helpful.

    The result was that typical shitty 1/5 reviews by people bitching about their Mac not running a game or others crying about pricing were viewed as "most helpful" for a bit there.

    Man the new GOG web design is retarded

    I'm bored and want to throw some money at games I'll never play but their page is actively preventing me from doing that

    Thanks, I guess?

    IIRC it was removed due to music licensing issues, has the "offending" music been removed from the game, or did they just renew the license or something? Do we know at all?

    According to Remedy the music is the same, and Microsoft paid for it:

    Reading about how bad the new GOG redesign isn't quite the same as actually experiencing it for yourself. Yikes. The splash page advertisement before allowing me to go to the actual site is the cherry on top of the shit cake. And just as I was beginning to migrate from Steam to GOG too. I'll have to rethink my plans again since the site is an embarrassing mess.

    No it isn't, unless the offer expired less than 16 minutes ago. :?

    In the process of looking the game up, I found that typing something in the search bar and pressing Enter no longer brings up a separate page of results. Oh GOG, is there anything about your website you've yet to ruin at this point?
