Gog.com Relaunches to Sell More New PC Games
The “GoG” in Gog.com once stood for “Good Old Games.” But now, since the online game retailer’s been relaunched, the “old” part isn’t such an important part of the equation. In fact, the site’s just GOG—that’s because the retailer is selling new games, too.
According to an announcement on their site, GOG.com will have a bunch of new, DRM-free games ready for purchase now or very soon: Legend of Grimrock, Trine, the Whispered World, Spacechem, Machinarium, and Darwinia.
“These games lead the way on our transition from Good Old Games to simply GOG.com,” says the announcment. “It doesn’t matter what G, O, and G stand for, Gee Oh Gee dot com stands for high-quality, DRM-free gaming, each week with bigger and newer games.”
In addition, the site will have a new layout, as well as a revamped GOG.com downloader, “which integrates support for downloading game patches, goodies, and notifications to keep GOG users up to date on changes to games they have purchased, replies ot forum threads, or PMs.”
Pretty cool stuff. GOG is definitely one of the more solid repositories of classic games out there, and it’s always nice when consumers have another alternative place to buy games, keeping things competitive. Welcome to today, GOG.
