Good Old Games Becomes GOG.com

GOG.com announces they are dropping the Good Old Games designation for their digital distribution service to better reflect their plans to offer more recent titles on their DRM-free marketplace. Here's a bit on what this means:

Don’t worry, no matter how new we’re getting, GOG.com will always stick to our three core values: No DRM, Fair Pricing, and Love for our GOG-ers. Newer means simply newer games, whether they’re big, recognized names, indie games, day-one releases, or pre-orders. Pre-order for Legend of Grimrock for only $11.99 today, or pick up Trine and The Whispered World right now; Spacechem, Machinarium, and Darwinia are coming soon. We have more than 20 great indie and newer games signed on GOG.com that will be showing up in the next few months.. These games lead the way on our the transition from Good Old Games to simply GOG.com. It doesn’t matter what G, O, and G stand for, Gee Oh Gee dot com stands for high-quality, DRM-free gaming, each week with bigger and newer games.

Meh... Good for them and all that, but DRM-free isn't enough for me to buy from them instead of Steam. The good, old games that weren't available anywhere else were the reason I gave them my money, so unless they can seriously compete on pricing, I'm not interested in their new releases.

Like Legend of Grimrock -- if that was a GOG.com exclusive, I'd buy it, but it's going to be on Steam any day now. Hell, you can buy a Steam key straight from the developer for the same price!

So long as I can buy the executable without needing a separate program I'll consider GOG for anything. I'd almost definitely go with Steam first, but I wouldn't turn down a good deal or exclusive.
