GOG.com Drops Fallout Games

GOG.com announces that Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics are no longer for sale on their DRM-free marketplace, apologetically, but vaguely citing "circumstances beyond [their] control." Here's the explanation of how this impacts people who have already purchased one or more of the seminal RPGs:
All those who acquired Fallout, Fallout 2, or Fallout Tactics on GOG.com prior to the date of removal (that is before Tuesday, December 31st 2013, at 3:59PM GMT), will still be able to download the games' install files (as well as the bonus content) via the "My Games" section of their user accounts. Gift-codes for these three games acquired in our recent giveaway are no longer valid. However, if you own a gift-code for any or all of them that was purchased outside of the said giveaway, you'll still be able to redeem it in the foreseeable future.

Blame Bethesda and Steam for their tight pro-drm stance. Hopefully everyone that wanted these got them by now.
Think about what you are saying. Games like oblivion and morrowind had such minimal DRM it was a laugh (disk check that could easily be fooled with just a burned copy). Beth has been really good about DRM in general.
Now they have the most stupid DRM: regional locks. I live in Poland. I can't play Dishonored if I don't have a Polish IP address. I can't get DLCs for Fallout Nev Vegas and Dishonored when they out, I have to wait until they make DLCs for our version. If someone gifts me the DLCs, they are useless, because from Steam points of view, most of Bethesda games in Eastern Europe are different games the those that the rest of the world is playing. I can't just buy their new games - I have to buy them from a polish shop and redeem the code. I had to ask somebody to gift me the Rage DLC, because it's not available for sale in Poland and I can't purchase it on Steam.
