Sorry about the lack of updates, dear readers. I have some excuses but no one wants to hear them, so instead have a link to an article explaining why GOG.com is so good.
One thing the author doesn’t give enough emphasis is how fantastic it is to legally purchase games with no compatibility problems and no DRM. 20 year old DOS games will run just fine on newer systems with GOG’s executables. The smaller library is the only thing keeping GOG.com from overtaking Steam entirely in terms of quality. Desura is another good alternative, and Gather Your Party will probably do an article covering them next. Hopefully game distributors in the future will learn the proper lesson from Microsoft’s Xbone failure and reduce or eliminate the amount of DRM in their products.
