GOG Galaxy 2.0 Epic Games Store integration stirs up some controversy

GOG Galaxy 2.0 Epic Games Store integration stirs up some controversy

Good Old Games is no longer Good Old Games. Whether that's a good or bad thing is something its users are still coming to terms with. GOG, which now just stands for GOG, has opened its doors wide not just to newer titles but to other PC games distribution platforms that don't really mesh well with its philosophy. The latter has mostly come via integration with its Galaxy 2.0 launcher to have one place to see all your games. The latest to join that rather small group is Epic Games and, unsurprisingly, not everyone is gushing over the announcement.

GWENT finally launches the Witcher card game on Android

The hype and gushing over Netflix's interpretation of The Witcher game seems to have faded a bit but its never too late to ride on that new wave of interest for the franchise. Except when it is actually months too late considering how GWENT, the Witcher card game, is seemingly falling on hard times at least on consoles. That game still runs on PCs and iOS with Android remaining a promise. That is until now as CD Projekt is finally letting Android phone owners toss a card to their favorite Witcher.

GOG Stay At Home collection has free PC games to while the time away

Staying indoors has forced some people, sometimes almost comically, to think of ways to keep themselves from going crazy. There's always Netflix and Disney+, of course, but some of those experiences get old easily after watching them once. There are more interactive forms of entertainment, the ones we call "games", and Good Old Games is dusting off its shelf of free games and presenting them as a more engaging way to keep sane and, at the same time, mentally active to some extent.

GOG’s more lenient refund policy accepts games that were already played

GOG’s more lenient refund policy accepts games that were already played

GOG may no longer really mean "Good Old Games" since it has started also selling Good New Games but it hasn't exactly departed from the spirit that made it a name in the PC gaming space. When most publishers and distributors espoused mostly draconic DRM strategies, GOG offered the freedom that was once prevalent in the good old gaming days. Now it's taking one more step towards that identity with a new refund policy that lets you return games as long as they fall within a certain time period, even if you've already downloaded them.

Telltale’s entire game catalog is about to disappear from GOG

Last year, Telltale games closed its doors for good. It was a sad end to a studio that had persisted in the games industry for 14 years, building a name for itself with episodic adventure games based on big-name licenses. Now, nearly eight months after the company went defunct, GOG has announced that it will soon be removing all remaining Telltale games from its catalog.

GOG Galaxy 2.0 wants to change the way we play PC games

GOG Galaxy 2.0 wants to change the way we play PC games

Today, GOG made an ambitious announcement: it wants to fix the problem of fractured game libraries and friends lists with a new service called GOG Galaxy 2.0. On PC, there are multiple storefronts and (often) accompanying clients that launch the games we've purchased - be it Steam, Origin, GOG, UPlay, and now the Epic Games Store, the games we buy on PC are often split between multiple libraries, and that can make it difficult to keep track of them all.

Perhaps it isn't surprising, then, to hear that the original Battlefront is coming to GOG today, which as always means that it'll be available DRM-free.
