News Comments > Free GOG.com Copies of Some Steam Games

sometime in the last 3 years valve became the unofficial owner of gog. they were really successful in keeping it lowdown. gog should just be considered drm-free steam now. because most people have steam already, the software (steam) tracks (and takes action) with your gog libraries. its bad. i hope posting this lets some more independent, more free individuals verify it publicly.

this game was one of the biggest disappointments to me. i didnt realize avalanche handed the franchise to their B-team while working on Madmax, but thats what it seemed. i got a few dozen hours of mediocre distraction from this game at best. id not give them any more money if they said this was JC4.

I can't believe the guy has the balls to fling names like that in the first place, given that his reputation for train-wrecked projects is now legendary (even post-id/ion).

This is the most unsurprising KS flop in its history yet. They may as well have tried to kickstart Duke Nukem Forever 2.

I was watching a playthrough of this, and an hour into the 'game' the entire thing turns into a live action tv show, which is actually worse than the regular, non-interactive cg. Terrible.

To me, Legacy of Kain starts and dies with Blood Omen. It's a great, dark, Zelda clone. I don't speak of the other games... old-ass CGI intro

Exactly this. Once Silicon Knights lost the franchise, and the entire thing mutated into someone else's vision, it was dead to me too.

Can't it be both? Seriously. We like politics in some games, and some games we play to avoid them. The only reason this touched a nerve is the recent self-segregation of gamers over human sexuality, and that it was poorly and amateurishly implemented (super-personal information about extremely minor character is just looking for a convenient spot to drop a social statement).

There, I fixed it. Just move on already, all of you.

I do not understand and will never understand the need to push this kind of bullshit in games. Can't we just have games to play without all the mellow drama bullshit?

It's bad enough people have to deal with this crap in real life, the devs got busted for it and good. Serves them right for trying to play up to this crap.
Have fun living in your bubble where you can cower and hide from the realities and issues of the day.

Science fiction and fantasy literature have always been about real life issues. It's by putting the story in a setting where the trivialities and rules of the universe can be skipped to focus on telling the story, which have always - in the best sci-fi and fantasy - been about the times and people and the world and all issues therein.

Apparently it's you that's living in a bubble, most common people prefer to not deal or hear about this lame bullshit. It does not have a place in gaming where people are trying to most likely place their political views and cramming them down everyone's throats.

Is it free? No? Cause I'm still waiting for the rest of my $60 adventure, and I got something that felt about $0.99 worth. Nice world. Where was the game again?

Bought into this on release and was so disappointed. Super entertaining if you just ignore everything, turn off the map, and roam. AAA game then. Otherwise it's just shit and distractions (from the fact you paid for it).

Yes, play this game if you have not, and are looking for some fantasy adventure. This game has a really unique combination of fun character builds, Shadow-of-the-Colossus-like interaction (grappling, crawling around on large enemies), amazing spell effects and great exploration. I had a lot of fun with this game on its original release, and a second time on the Dark Arisen rerelease. It's a good game.

There are so many they left out. They probably could have done a '50 people who have sued the video game industry' video.

Why even fucking chance it? Seriously? It's like saying "I have to put this scorpion on my dick, but I put rubber bands on it's claws and I don't *think* it can get them off."

Seriously. Why ever install Win10? Why?

No, see this right here is pure, unmitigated BULLSHIT. (You know what's bulllllshit?...been watching too much AVGN ) It should be against the fucking law to skip out on paying employees (period), especially during the holidays. That's just low...so goddamn low. That's lower than dirt. You're in mud and clay territory. These people worked the hours, now pay up! (WHERE'S MY MONEY?!?) And if not, there better be a big fucking bonus when you slimey bastards DO finally pay! You can't even begin to possibly tell me they didn't see this coming like a month or two or six in advance?! BULL-SHIT!
ARGH! God, that shit pisses me off!

Well, I still use Winamp daily as my sole MP3 player. I have zero interest in streaming content (unless it's one of the few webradio spots left), and I have a thing called directory-structure that functions as my library.

Someone turned me on to something called AIMP when I brought up this headline today. Haven't checked it out yet, but sounds promising.

Not sure I trust a WinAMP revival. All companies want to do now a days is turn the software into spyware and distribute it for "free".

Hate MGS. This dude has been talking about his departure since MGS2!!! Astounding. Hope he's got fucktons of cash from that venture to do whatever he wants afterward. This whole situation seemed really painful (from what we could tell outside of the company).

No fair, Taylor Swift said she would be exclusive with only me. Now shes biting into the Apple. Huzzy.

Wasnt she the pop star that caused apple to make some significant change in some product? Or am I misremembering? If it's the same one that would be a hilarious flip-flop.

They were mocking that trend even, saying the next step might be a button to teleport to the objective.

Nah, the new trend is Twitch (or Let's Plays!); passive gaming.

How fucking meta is that shit?

Can we do something different? I have been waiting for SS3 for a long time, but not SHODAN. Let a fucking victory from one of the past games stand!

The game kind of went from tons of fun playing Meccs, to OK/frustrating as the Sea Reaper, and then by the time you got to play the Giant, you were just kind of restless

My experience exactly. Never actually finished the game, but fond memories and liked it at the time. Always meant to go back. Certainly made me hate bump mapping tech in one swift go.

This teams followup game was pretty shitty, (Armed and Dangerous) but had the same British humor and python-esque presentations and characters as Giants.
