The good news is that these removals should only be temporary, as Konami plans to bring them back in the future.

Star Wars day is nearly here - that's May the 4th (be with you), 2021. In the mix this year is an avalanche of temporary price cuts for Star Wars games on multiple platforms.

GOG Galaxy 2.0 app to allow buying games from other stores

GOG Galaxy 2.0 app to allow buying games from other stores

Apps and games stores are hot topics these days, with two of the biggest in the mobile world scrutinized for their alleged monopolies and unfair business practices. Although not as much in the spotlight, the PC gaming world also has its own Apple App Store in the form of Valve's Steam. Unsurprisingly, there is also a sort of anti-Steam in GOG's Galaxy 2.0 store which is now testing the ability to buy games from other platform's stores, starting with, to no one's shock, the Epic Games Store.

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.
