GOG.com Announcements This Week

GOG.com sends a reminder that they are holding and online event on Thursday to discuss what the future holds for this digital delivery service as well as at developer CD Projekt RED. Here's word:

GOG.com, the digital distributor of DRM-free gaming goodness, would like to remind you about the CD Projekt & GOG.com Special Event that’s taking place on the Thursday, the 18th of October at 18:00 GMT, streamed live to the web from www.gog.com or www.facebook.com/gogcom.

GOG.com will have a lot of news about new games, classic games, and even big news about an exciting new direction that the digital distributor formerly known as 'Good Old Games' will be taking. The crazy minds behind GOG.com posted this video today to get you wondering what the annoucement is: http://youtu.be/yLZEqi9U-wY

After GOG.com finishes thier part of the presentation, developer CD Projekt RED will take the stage of the live stream to share news of their own about The Witcher 2, their in-development modding toolset called the REDKit, and even some tantalizing new details about the upcoming Cyberpunk® RPG that they’re working on.

Anyone looking to watch should go to www.gog.com or www.facebook.com/gogcom at 18:00 GMT (That’s 14:00 in New York , 11:00 in Los Angeles, and 20:00 in Warsaw) to check it out live.

Am I the only one who feels this site has lost a lot of its identity since they dropped the "Good Old" part of their name? DRM-free is all well and good, but I find I'm a lot less interested in the store now that's it's being flooded with brand new indies and 2-8 year old bargain bin titles. I can, and do, get all of that kind of stuff on Steam...

In order to get some of that precious market share from Good Ol' Steam they are going to have to offer competing products and services, and that will mean many of the same games being available on both platforms.

Anyone who is still looking for a classic windows or dos game that GOG doesn't have-- I'd strongly suggest looking at the eXoDOS compilation, it covers so many of the classics and has a really nice frontend as well for installing/launching any of the titles in a couple clicks.

If GOG happens to carry the game later on down the road you can still pick it up and use the save file you're working on with the GOG version.. truly a win-win =)

They have to go where the money is.. and unfortunately that is never going to be continued trips down nostalgia lane for an evermore-niche audience.
