Ugh. I hope that's only for new games. GOG used to be about providing the original games only modified so they'd run on the latest platforms, which nothing else added.
• Cities: Skylines • Oddworld: New n Tasty • The Long Dark • Defense Grid • Alien: Isolation • Metro 2033 • Tropico 5 • Inside • Darkest Dungeon • My Time at Portia • Night in the Woods • Stranded Deep • Solitairica • Torchlight II • Jurassic World Evolution
For your joy, today you can replay it for FREE on Epic !!!Oh man, it's funny as heck to see Solitairica in that list. I actually have it on Steam. It's solitaire meets RPG, but the Rogue-lite aspects are way too grindy. The amount of whatever needed to fully upgrade your deck versus the amount you get per run will have you crying. And there are six decks to fully upgrade, IIRC.
That's a game that never got my attention, I'll do that if I will remember that someone is interested.Now to wait for PowerGod to announce when it goes on giveaway...
As I understand it, it's all about the payment mechanism. Apple theoretically at least would allow an app that should you a part of apple's app store and allows you to buy things from apple. They're objecting to people installing things using differenent stores with different payment mechanisms, which stops apple getting their cut of the purchase price. At the very least thats what they really care about, the lawyers in this case will probably use some analogous public interest excuse that only if implemented properly would give all of our money to apple.It's part of their legal battle with Apple. They want to show that they allow app stores on their app store while Apple doesn't.
"The new store inside GOG Galaxy operates like any other store," the company told us. "It means we're selling games and earning a cut out of these sales."
It's not about DRM, Epic is neutral about that, it has both games super protected and it was many time also the first store to receive unprotected games (if you exclude the need of the client to download them once, the same of Steam).I don't know what Epic's stance on DRM free is, or to be honest if GoG is still beating that drum.
