Good Old Games has just let out a flood of announcements that changes the face of the video game distribution service, both literally and figuratively. Starting today, GOG will be selling games in four new currencies that players can choose, plus a rather enticing offer when US dollar and local prices don't match.

There is no clean takeaway — the robots aren’t friendly, and humans are being edged out of the picture.

Some games graphics, especially cutscenes, have started to look so real that sometimes it feels as if you're actually watching a live action film. Sometimes it makes you wonder why these aren't turned into movies themselves. Fret not, true believer, as Activision is said to be wondering about that too, and might actually do something about it as well.
