At least they're trying something a little different this time. It's not Path of Exile where you get a major new mutator, but an inherent RRoG passive could have a significant impact on some character builds.

Please speak English! Not everyone understands what does abbreviations stands for.

Since one Blue commenter posted about him gotten his user account leaked by Epic Games because of a breach and their support were pretty non existent to plain ignoring him to i would think twice getting an account there.

Who would want to buy a game from a publisher who destroyed the Star Control franchise and removing the classics from GOG?

i remember the early mod when the only map was the house. i didnt bother with source though. it was full of aimbots and spiky models back then. not sure im going to bother now.

I always thought that map war ripped from a random Tom Clancy Rainbow Six game.

There was a map a few betas in where you could drive around in jeeps. It was helluva fun! Or driving that tank in one of the first maps, dunno about the name but it was fun as well!

So GOG is CDPR's baby? I never knew that. Gotta give credit where credit is due, those Poles are pretty smart people.

Dude? How did you miss that?

However, GOG is complete chicken shit. Its revenue is (unfortunately) completely laughable compared to a behemoth like Steam. It is no serious competition at all by any definition of the word. GOG are barely a drop in the ocean in the digital distribution world.

I saw up to you on Blues until now, what a ridiculous post. They may not have the biggest catalog but their are plenty of gems on there. But what would you know.

Dude, I'm not exactly looking to win any popularity contests on here or maybe I'd behave a little differently from time to time .

Anyway, as you can see from the "unfortunately" in parentheses in my post I'd like for GOG to do better as well. I just stated the simple truth and fact which is that GOG is chicken shit compared to most other big digital distribution players (especially Steam, ofc) in terms of REVENUE (not catalog! ... I know they have almost 2600 games on there) as I stated.

CD Projekt Red is a publicly traded corp on the Warsaw stock exchange so they are very transparent. They offer up some really good documentation on their business. You can find a very comprehensive report of their business activities on their website. Or an older one (covering 2017) but even more comprehensive one here.

GOG has had a total revenue of about PLN64 million in the first half of 2018 or according to the Q3 release they now stand at PLN92 million for the first nine months of 2018. That's just under $17 million revenue for H1/2018 and about $24 million revenue for the nine months period.

In 2017 they made annual revenue on GOG of PLN169 million. That was $44 million. They are going to need a really good Q4 this year if they want to hit last year's measly numbers.

So, sorry, but those figures are a complete joke in terms of revenue. Steam's revenue was estimated to be about $4.3bn in the year 2017. GOG made about $44 million. We are talking a factor of ONE HUNDRED.

Also note in the docs how CDPR attributes the vast majority of GOG's revenues to Witcher and Gwent. This means that they are barely making anything from the 3rd party catalog or the "old games".
They have 2600+ games on GOG. It's easy to imagine when most of the money is coming from Witcher and Gwent that at $44 million annual revenue they just aren't moving any significant amount of copies of 3rd party games.

And let's not even get started on profits or anything. For the first nine months they posted a loss. A very moderate loss but a loss nonetheless of about $250K.

Sad but true but them's the facts straight from the horse's mouth. It ain't my fault for once!

Ok! I understand. I thought you meant the library was shit which it isn't although they are missing a lot of older games and new as well. But when even Steam has getting more diluted with AAA-games it ain't helping GOG either.

I don't know the recipe for GOG. Maybe stop selling DRM-free games. It's obvious they are loosing a lot of revenue by going that route they've chosen.

Their are plenty of unique games on GOG. And by the way they usually work better there too than on Steam. And they are DRM-free plus offer many things that came with the game like manuals, artwork, soundtracks etc..

Really you should reconsider.

I think you misunderstand. I have dozens of games on GOG and am playing a game on there fairly regularly, I just don't leave the client running all the time. I leave the Steam one running, since that's where most of my games are, and also my brother and nephew hang out there.

Ok i understand.

Well it depends on what the priorities are and the size of the library of games. Although GOG Galaxy is pretty good nowadays. I just wished GOG had those classics only present on Steam.

It's always great to have competition but I do not want multiple platforms installed on my PC.

From a convenience standpoint, I agree. On the other hand, I just leave GoG and Origin off until I want to play a game unique to those services.

Epic has a lot to learn from a security perspective before I'll ever associate a payment method with them again. Back in July, about 9 million epic accounts showed up on the darkweb (mine included). I use Dashlane and have a securely generated unique password for every single service I use. No passwords are reused.

My account was compromised and I was billed $400 in v bucks (what the fuck is a vbuck?). I opened a ticket with them immediately and explained that I don't even know what a fortnite is and they ignored the ticket. Also removed stored payment credentials.

I pleaded with them on twitter, and still they ignored my ticket. I disputed the transaction with Paypal, but because Epic had a sellers agreement, it was a legitimate transaction from their end and suggested I bring it up with Epic. My ticket finally got a response that said my user/pass combo showed up on a third party site and that I should secure my account. Dude. The only way this shit got leaked was through you. It was a unique user/pass to your service!

I had to post a thread on reddit before the community managers reached out and resolved my case/issued refunds. 3 weeks later. And they said the same thing. My user/pass was compromised. I told them that it was a unique combination for their service and linked them to the various sites reporting that they had a user database leak, and they said "okay well we're not sure how it is out there but our systems weren't compromised."

They still haven't owned up to it. Never putting payment information on an Epic Games account again.

What a shitty way of handling it's customers. Thank you for posting this. Although Fortnite is a shitty kids game.

Why are AAA single-player games viable again?

They were never not viable.

How dare you contradict the mass media idea that was kicked around for five seconds and put forward as fact! Laugh

Single Player games are very much viable. What are you smoking?

I can't say I really care anymore since Starbreeze is a shadow of what it used to be. On the other hand if MachineGames was being shut down I'd be disappointed.

Hopefully Double Fine Productions and OtherSide Entertainment can find new publishers and funding for their games if this restructuring doesn't work out for Starbreeze.

Well the last good game was Brothers: Tale of the two sons a really great game albeit a bit short. Payday is just a microtransactionridden game.

They did make two great Riddick games. Otherwise their portfolio is rather thin on great games.

UGh, predatory attorneys looking to make a killing with a class action lawsuit. They don't give a shit about the game, they just saw headlines and a quick way to make a buck. They get bank and everyone in the class gets a few cents credit. Whoo.


As far as Fallout 76, it's not anymore or less buggy than 3 and 4 were, people are just pissed that the game is not Fallout 5. Still playing it with my girlfriend, still having fun.

Agreed! Fallout 3 is so unstable it's a joke. Crashes when it feels like it. How can this be any worse, it's nothing!

While I probably would have no object to a C&C Red Alert 2 remaster, I don't care so much about the other ones. Tiberian Sun was my first official RTS game I believe that I owned, but Red Alert 2 officially made me a fan. I put countless hours into that game until Warcraft 3 eventually hit and became my newest obsession.

Dude C&C Red Alert 2 and C&C: Tiberian Sun are the sequels to Red Alert, and Tiberian Dawn. If you haven't played the originals you've never experienced C&C

Seriously, Red Alert 2 was cool, but Tiberian Sun was much inferior to Tiberian Dawn.

Some people are extremely sensitive to motion sickness, which is a major problem if the FOV cannot be user configured.

FoV sickness is not the same as motion sickness though. I can play games like Prey (the original with its pretty wild upside/down "4D" gameplay), I can play every single other FPS just fine, I can ride rollercoasters and I can fly gliders but gimme a game with a low FoV and I feel like puking within a few minutes.

It's like the narrow FoV passes straight through the eyes right into the brain and triggers something within. It is immediately physically painful to play like an oncoming migraine and then the sickness sets in very quickly.

It has nothing to do with motion sickness though. The last time I puked (with no alcohol involved that is... I puked quite a few times in my teens and twens from drinking too much ofc ) was at age 14 so 32 years ago.
I have naturally been on many turbulent flights, boat trips, rollercoasters etc. since then but never got sick.
Well, I have also never puked from poor FoV (yet) but it was pretty close a few times.

So, yeah, fuck no PoV slider. Another excellent reason to ignore this piece of shit.


I couldn't put it any better.

You and Cutter are the only ones i have respect for on Blues. The others seems to be braindead morons who buy every crap the big publishers put up in their face.
