Yes because the single player campaign is the most over-rated I've played in ten years. Boring and cliched is the only thing that came to mind while I was playing through it.
That i heard a lot. Hmm, i guess i just wait for all three games to be released and available as a typical GotY edition, all inclusive.

How does this game manage to have a serious "e-sport" community if it has no LAN capability?

Oh, right. People are stupid and will buy goddamn anything. *headsmack*
I dont buy Starcraft for e-sport. I would buy it for the singleplayer campaign. Would i be stupid too?

What, vodka doesn't qualify as WMD? Polish overproof vodka sure seems dangerous to me.
Vodka from Poland is quite delicious, you can drink a lot without being dead-sick the other morning.

I would settle with GOG.com, if they would send me a bottle of Zubrówka. Or at least some credit notes for an online shop. Come on ...

honestly, what was everybody so up-in-arms about? they stole your money? no? they stole your girlfriend? no? they pulled what amounted to a prank? yeah? really? that's what got everybody's panties in a bunch? wow. I mean, even in the surreal sheltered reality that is my life I can't imagine being pissed about that.
Go, read the old discussions. There are plenty of reasons why people are pissed about this PR stunt. No need to repeat them all especially for you ...

And yes, i too am waiting for my promised pony!!!!

Holy hell, the leaked emails from ACS are going to create a shitstorm of epic proportions on the copyright front.
No. They won't. This is just a desperate lawyer looking for a quick buck by harassing thousands of internet subscribers. He will go away, others will come. This has nothing to do with "Copyright", this is just a unimportant side story.

But i do smile ...

XP is a dead operating system.
It's not "dead". It's just a nine year old OS, which is still used all over the world. Just look at the Steam Survey results.

No, the world doesn't need GOG.
But it does need more DRM-free services

A user interface so awful that they have to sell a gamepad with it.
They should include this with every game purchase of the PC version. A friend of mine participated in the beta and his horrifying cries in the dark night ... oh, those soul-crushing cries!

I think they are lying about that part, just like they lied about closing GOG...
Don't you get it? These are no technical difficulties, this is an ongoing marketing campaign! Isn't it funny?

Don't feel sorry for them, they get paid anyway. In this case i feel sorry for nobody. Two arrogant pricks and the freedom of expression, the internet gives us. Nothing more to it than this, go on, nothing more to see ...

Let me rephrase: It's difficult to find a legal, unused copy of those games while rewarding either the developer and/or publisher involved in its creation.
In the case System Shock and other old games it is no longer possible to "reward" the original dev or publisher, because they no longer exist. You just buy some files and reward yourself. Which is ok btw., didnt mean you no harm or offense. And yes, GOG.com is a very convenient and easy to use service. I am just angry at them for this stunt.

But i'm no longer emotionally attached to gaming, because for the devs and publishers this is only business, where its ok to harass your customers and offend them. So, it's business to me too. I buy a game, because i think the deal is worth it. I buy the game for myself, i dont buy it to "reward" some dev, who is already paid for his work in advance.

Planescape: Torment and System Shock would be much more exciting.
It's not hard to get a copy of them either. Even legally. There is no need to crawl up in GOG.coms ass

Well that other business we call the cable, satellite and telephone industry. It's also the most hated group of industries in existence with around a 20% approval rating.

Which is interesting, because we get screwed the same way and need to 'patiently wait'.
True, but sadly enough nearly ALL OF THEM screw us, so mostly there is no point in switching. Also, Telecommunications is kind of a must in our society and civilization. But gaming is only a nice luxury. So ...

If I pulled a stunt like this to 'get' customers, I'd have lost business so fast, my head would still have been spinning 10 years later.
Unless you have enough customers, who couldnt care less about the way you treat them

But besides the gaming industry, i cant think of an another branch of trade with such high percentages of complacent and patient customers.

Even if it was a joke, albeit a bad one, why the fuck would you flip out like that? People here are reacting as if they tried to kill their children...
You dont get it, do you? Even if it is explained to you a hundred times?

But let's stop here. You dont see it, therefore further words and explanations are useless. Do not waste more time and energy. Because this is NOT about some murdered children, but only about a bad, very bad and ill-concieved PR stunt.

Yes ... seriously! You dont have to agree, you dont even have to "get it". Just drop that arrogance and respect the fact, that some people are angry at GOG for that PR stunt.

Dunno whats is up with you guys. Need your weekly hysteria and senseless bashing?
Are you one of those people, who cannot be offended? Who stay calm all the time, never a loud word, being zen and such? Are you a monk?

There are people, customers who feel offended by this campaign. You are not. Thats okay. But denying them their feelings (you are not allowed to feel offended. If so, you must be stupid as i am smart) is disrespectful and arrogant. LIke that pr stunt.

As long as they keep selling DRM free games, I doubt that any existing customers will be that pissed off to quit doing business with them. I bet they'll offer a few free games or some coupons to existing customers and most will forget about it.
There is a saying in marketing: "Loosing a customer costs you nothing and takes only seconds. Winning back that customer costs you lots of money and can take years!"

A marketing campaign, that costs you customers, has to make A LOT OF NEW CUSTOMERS to be successful. A lot! Because when you make just enough new customers to compensate for the loss of old ones, why the heck did you do this campaign after all?

And if GOG.com proves to be successful, you think there will be no competition? Other DRM free download services, who treat their customers with respect?
