Good Old Games has something new up its sleeve
GOG.com has some shiny new plans to take on Valve's Steam and EA's Origin, starting with some shiny new games.
Along with the classic games its known for, Good Old Games will begin to offer new titles through it's DRM-free distribution service for 2012 and 2013.
GOG.com plans to have over 400 games by the end of 2012, and hopes to sign exclusive releases:
It's all to reach their goal of becoming the second-largest independent digital games distributor on the web.
I agree Steam is, and always will be better then anything EA can ever come up with, and please don't get me wrong, I really like Steam, it's just been Fucking up a lot on me as of late, But I also would not mind for Steam to have some far completion beyond Origin, that does not treat the consumer like a POS, and a Pirate before they even buy the product.
That's because your holding it wrong. Steam is still way better than Origin, but I am for this, as GOG is a great site and as long as they keep the old stuff I will be happy to buy new games from them as well.
with all the FUCK ups I've been having with Steam as of late, having to keep resetting my account data, and reinstalling Steam itself, This sounds like a good thing.
Well now, I guess I'll just have to look into this more.
It'll be a nice alternative when a company decides to be a dumbass and not put their games on Steam. *hinthint*
The only thing I bought on GOG is the original Rayman. I'm going to buy the next two Rayman games.
I am a Fan of Steam but THIS I FULLY SUPPORT!
I LOVE ME SOME SWEET ASS GOG ACTION!!!!
ORIGIN can GO F**K ITSELF!
The guys behind GOG understand that DRM restricts everyone except pirates. Their whole business revolves around trusting the consumer and giving them actual ownership of the product they buy. That's why I give them money. :3
Hmmm this is interesting....
