    I tried Coteries of New York. It's cringeworthy and can't turn off text animation.

    Edit: also no branching or C&C.

    I was briefly tempted despite the lack of gameplay, but reviews make it sound like you don't even make any real decisions, you just watch everything play out. Super lame.

    Understandable, seeing the state of WoD nowadays. The setting is deader than dead, and it will never recover. For good and bad, they're not using NWoD books for ideas for future games.
    A Beast: the Primordial would trigger all SJWs due feeling identified with the psychos you're forced to play as. Said game was made by a confirmed sexual predator as well.

    Partisans 1941 was removed from the store.
    Nobody knows why, the only lead is this thing:

    Guess that devs refused to remove DRM from their game moment before release. Those StarForce loving bastards are weird...

    Freebie Europa Universalis 2. Claim from the front page as usual.

    I was instantly reminded of my favorite track from way back when I had no idea what it all was and EU2 was actually the first one I played.

    Exact same experience and favourite track, oh gentleman of refined taste.
    Maybe I should give it a whirl again. I loved the historical events.

    Others seem cheap if one wants a full collection.

    Would it kill gog to get some decent releases from these publishers? How many times can they do weekly deals for the same games over and over again? CK3 is out now, and CK2 is probably finito for DLCs. Pack that sumbitch up with a gog GOTY/Legacy edition and give us the goods. Damn.

    Nope, gotta milk that CK2-cow for every damn drop. There are (tens of?) thousands of CK2-players who don't own all the DLCs for CK2. Why make it easy for them when you can make it hard for them?

    Thanks a lot for the recommendation!

    I bought the game on GOG and just finished it.
    It was a really great, unique and funny experience.

    By the way, this (non) game is actually based on a very short freeware version created during a game jam:

    Yeah, you'd expected something like Vampire the Masquerade or System Shock 2 to be on sale for Halloween, but I'm happy with them grabs.

    Well, 6 months later we can now answer this.

    [​IMG]

    This is in K PLN, 1 EUR = 0.22 PLN so really profit of €1.2M in 6 months, and not even the "good" month of December. Of course, COVID19 may have helped a bit, but Q1 was already at €0.4M.

    No need to save on your games on hard drive.

    Figured it wouldn't change much at all given the stuff sold on GOG is generally higher quality than your average Steam title. I haven't had to use the refund policy yet after 100+ purchases.
