As much as I bitch about the Classic Fallout games, I do want them remastered at some point so they could be fun to play, has less bugs than a Beth game, look better, fix their mechanics (having to pickpocket to trade with companions is garbage), and restore cut content. They very much need a remaster.

Better than steam imo. If you don’t mind missing out on big titles in favor of more indies and older PC games, on top of having better customer service and being drm free I highly recommend it.

GOG is my preferred service mainly due to it being DRM free on top of having older games being up to date with modern OSs.

To be fair, "better than Steam" isn’t exactly saying much. Not having to run a client in the background just to run a game is already a step above Steam.

I live in a place where the Internet goes out not super often, just often enough to be annoying. When that happens, Steam likes to get finicky and not boot in offline mode so I can’t play games that are already on my computer just because I don’t have an Internet connection. What.

True. I’d also say it has better curation and visibility for indies. Steam is loaded with asset flips and CS is hardly ever helpful.

Meanwhile, I disappointed myself earlier by seriously considering installing Origin in the name of the new Need for Speed. I’m not sure what’s worse, even considering that it might be worth having to use Origin, or that it might actually be worth having to use Origin.

I have a fun story about that.

A while back, my brother, who has had a Steam account longer than 99% of people (he got not long after HL2 came out), was getting rid of old email addresses and online accounts he didn’t use any more. What he didn’t realize at the time was he deleted the email address his Steam account was linked to. He thought he changed the email address to one he actually uses but it turns out he didn’t.

Yeah, that was a case where the problem existed between the chair and the computer, but you’d think someone would reply to his customer service ticket. Even if they weren’t going to give him his account back, you’d think they’d at least send a message saying "Sorry, we can’t restore your account" or something like that. But no word at all.

At one point some game he wanted to play either came out or went on sale (can’t remember which game) and he decided he’d set up a new account to just play it. But his payment was blocked because they thought it was identity theft or something since someone just opened an account and was using a card in someone else’s payment history.

Finally after months – upwards of a year, maybe even two years – they finally gave him his old account. What’s funny is they only responded after he filed another support ticket that was just an angry rant about how he’s been a customer since nearly the beginning and they’re ignoring him and how their customer service is a joke and how he hopes Steam as a platform fails and goes under, etc.

I actually got some free gomaes from that store, but the main reason I stuck with steam until I get gog galaxy 2.0 is due to the huge library I got with it and the lack of game developer software on gog. I actually signed up for it months ago and still not got it.
On the flipside, any news about it getting out of closed beta.

@J4m35

They tend to have more obscure stuff than what the other storefronts offer, plus they have no DRM whatsoever, so that’s also a plus.

You ever think about how the Guitar Hero and Rock Band games were HUGE in the mid to late 2000’s, and then they just… petered out?
