    Eneba is one of the shadier ones ;d You can use gg.deals for the same thing and they always list legit sites alongside shadier ones.

    Once GOG management's priority shifted from serving their loyal customers to profit-driven expansion at all costs, the decline was irreversibly set in motion. The people calling the shots no longer cared about the business, only the profit margins... and they clearly failed miserably at that.

    GOG could have grown steadily and attracted new users while maintaining the core relationship they had with existing customers. Instead they spread themselves too thin with feature-creeping Galaxy client development, a rapidly growing catalog, a poorly designed website with bad search/sorting options, selling movies (didn't last long), providing support for broken releases of newer games, reimbursing customers through the fair price package program as a result of adding regional pricing (discontinued 2-3 years ago), and so on.

    All this shit and they never bothered to upgrade their horribly outdated forums.

    Welp, I'm surprised. Maybe Rance games might come to GOG some day, as a bunch of Kagura games have been released to GOG, including the deconsering patches.

    Welp, gogtards, looks like it's the second class treatment for you again (third class, actually, considering how NightDive went ahead and made a build for the Epic Store)!

    To provide a bit of context: When the Enhanced Edition dropped on Steam, a gog staffer did a bit of damage control by telling everyone the gog build is currently being "finalised".
    [​IMG]

    Luckily, the gog.Kom Kleanup Krew is already on the job, silencing potential troublemakers...
    [​IMG]

    To summarize: Fuck NightDive (I was happy to see them fall flat on their stupid faces with their Blade Runner "Remaster" - which was little else than an attempt to undercut ScummVM/gog by quickly cobbling together their own version to put that up on on Steam - and I'll be happy to see them fall flat on their stupid faces again with their disgraceful, shitty remake of System Shock, which is shaping up to be a rock-solid 58-at-best-on-Metacritic), fuck the Bethstapo and fuck gog's retardo-tier staff!

    Here's a small list I have to keep track of all the stuff that I still wanna grab from GOG if/when it eventually arises:

    Stuff like Blood Omen, Blade Runner and many others were also in this list but they've actually released those. Any other recommendations that I might've forgotten are welcome.

    I don't even need to guess why GOG isn't getting theirs, it's the online shit and telemetry. All that might be a tough sell to GOG, unless they completely bend over. It's also a distinct possibility that the aforementioned "features" will get further development from Bethesda.

    As soon as someone unironically uses the term "toxic behavior" I tune them out.

    I love gog I bought great patched versions of pc games that were broken and unpatched on steam but the GOG versions are all up to date and fixed

    for example call of cthulhu dark corners and harvester both games on steam are unplayable but the GOG versions are perfect

    Planet M.U.L.E. is a great (free) M.U.L.E. remake with solo and multiplayer, and looks much better than this thing.

    Not always though, the opposite is the usual:

    As for the blatant hentai games, still no Alicesoft games, sadly.
