GOG 10 Years!

GOG's 10th Anniversary Giveaway

This thing dropped into my mailbox a few days ago, and of course I went to check it out! 10 years of GOG?! What can I say? I'm a fan. I'm hyped for the celebrations. I wanted to cast my vote.

GOG's 10th Anniversary Error

But I guess a lot of other people did too because I only reached this far! Disappointed, I moved onto other projects, forgot about the event and just remembered it today.

GOG's 10th Anniversary Vote Selection

At the nick of time! :D If you happen to be reading this blog within the next ten minutes or so: there's still time!!! Head over to the voting booth here, or if you're late maybe to read up on their history, watch a quick hype video and admire the graphics? They've always been good at those. Looking forward to seeing which one wins, real soon.

GOG 10 Years Voting Complete! Shadow Warrior 2 Won!

Like, right now. :) And I won!

Well we all won. Even if we voted on another game, cause there's rebates on all of them now, and Shadow Warrior's awesome right?

Also here's a few background images.

Cheers, for all these past years GOG (for the record I always pronounce that gee oh gee - gog just sounds wrong), and looking forward to this new decade that follows!

UPD: Also don't miss the video!

GOG Summer Sale Goes On!

They're at it again so here's a post again! Good discounts, and some...

Free Stuff Unlocked!

...free stuff if you buy stuff! One game's free by default.

You can find the background here, and the page here. Well fare!

GOG USERPAGES

GOG USERPAGES

This is pretty revolutionary isn't it? And what a coincidence: A week after NG launched their major userpage overhaul GOG introduces userpages!

You can set visibility for each part to Everyone, Friends, or Only You - parts which are so far a list of Friends, Games, and your Wishlist.

There aren't any superfluous fields there to fill out - just a little profile blurb if you like, and your avatar if you don't already have one (I didn't, as until now there was no reason to). It seems you can only see profiles if you log in, but feel free to friend me if you like - I'm not a public figure there.

One cool detail apart from finally being able to share games and wishlists with others - if you do such things, are the customizable backgrounds. The selection looks like this so far; with a nifty search box for titles:

GOG's New Background Image Selection

...but that's just a little peek! The full selection is pretty big.

In case you didn't open that image (or as a warning before you do) there's 380 choices. Quite something compared to NG's 5-6 background colors.

I'm not sure if loaded alternatives remain active, but toggling through different backgrounds trying to make a choice actually bogged down my browser so much I had to shut down the page - and open it again.

Hope they get that fixed. Also hope they add in some DOOM in their selection - because those legendary titles I was instantly hyped about being able to decorate my profile with were not there!!!!

Even though they do have the games.

This is pretty cool though. If you didn't have a reason to sign up for GOG earlier maybe this is reason enough? If you're into logging your game times and such this will let you do that too - via the GOG Galaxy client, and then boast to the world how much time you spend by the computer.

I don't think I'll be using that, but I do like the pages! Cool stuff GOG.

GOG Two Step

GOG Two Step

Was going to post this a long time ago... when it was new. But in case you didn't know it yet, here's another site that upgraded their user system security in the simplest/best possible way. You can never be too safe.

Hope it keeps spreading! Two Factor's awesome.
