GOG.com Update

GOG.com has word that their re-launch is hitting some speed bumps, saying: "Sorry everyone for the delay in the launch of the new website. Our servers, even thou [sic] we've augmented their number, just didn't manage to support the huge interest from your side. We're adding more servers as we speak and everything should start improving. Enjoy the new website, all the features and the newelly [sic] released Baldur's Gate."

Clearly the downtime was worth it, based on the results.

I'll believe their "We're getting swamped with purchases/downloads" when I see numbers.

I find it far more likely that they fucked up their new site launch and are just hiding behind "See, our ad campaign was so fucking awesome that we just sold 8 TRILLION GAMES!" self-delusional smokescreen.

That said, I will buy Baldur's Gate from them.

Yup. While I've been quite pissed off. I haven't said I wont shop there still.

I let them know this morning how I felt in a feedback submission. Venting directly to them made me feel a bit better.
