I bought it on Steam first but often if the price is right and I see a game on GOG even if I have it on Steam or Origin, I get it on GOG.  I love the lack of DRM.

Now that you mention it, I am quite concerned about Origin. That is the client that can actually go down and under. And then what ? They will take Commander Shepard from me ?

It was annoying when EA decided to make their newer games Origin exclusives.

I'm trying to think of any other games I would ever want to buy on their service. Now that I've given up on Bioware and EA has digested Visceral (no more Dead Space), I think I don't need them any more.

While I didn't agree with the direction he helped take ME3, I always did think he was kinda sexy.  I hope he CAN keep BioWare around.  I would be devastated if they closed up shop.

I don't think it will be necessarily EA's fault. A lot of good people left Bioware after fan outrage... but yeah, its' all in Casey Hudson's hands now.

I get the impression some were very demoralized by the fan outrage. Up til the ME3 ending controversy BioWare had mainly been getting praise with DA2's lukewarm reception being their worst criticism to date at the time.

*necros the living shit out of this thread*

Y'know, I really do hope that the Epic Game Store fails...well...epically. Sure, Bloodlines 2 isn't exclusive to it, but if it gets a sequel, it could be, and other games are ending up exclusive on it. Now I have to either buy Borderlands 3 on that dog turd launcher that doesn't even have a shopping cart or wait an extra six months. Obviously, I'm going the superior-human-being route and waiting the six months to stick it to these scumbags who have utterly teabagged the consumer, but this still sucks.

I can only hope there is sufficient solidarity to ruin the EGS. If enough weasel gamers can't resist the temptation to play games earlier on a dumpster fire of a launcher, then EGS will win. D':

I hope the exact opposite, that the Epic store prevails and finally forces Valve to clean up Steam from all the asset flip games and other rubbish.

I wonder if it's possible to have a decent approval pace, while keeping the rubbish out. I try to think to myself what's the issue, because approval can be very slow, or even arbitrary, whenever some form of curation is applied.

As much as I like GOG, I know of some devs that got really bad experiences with them when it comes to being rejected.
