Re: Question for people who use GOG (Good Old Games)...

Yes, MB/s. Not Mb/s. That's how Galaxy and Downloader displayed it. My internet speed plan is with Shaw and is 150Mbps (it was the fastest for my area, but I think they have 300Mbps now). A speed test tells me I actually get around 175Mbps, though (22 MB/s) and 16Mps for uploading. It is odd that d...

Re: Question for people who use GOG (Good Old Games)...

Are you saying MBs (megabytes per second) or Mbps (megabits per second)? Usually download speeds are shown in Mbps, which is a lot different than MBs. Maia and I have the highest speed tier at Telus and the speed test I just took says we currently max out at 60.77 Mbps (aka 7.6 MBs). Regardless... o...

Re: Question for people who use GOG (Good Old Games)...

So I thought, "S**** this", downloaded and installed Galaxy, and went ahead. The Galaxy install and games installs went off without a hitch, so I think I prefer Galaxy to the Downloader. It's much slower, sure, but at least it works. *shrugs* I wonder why it's not working for you. It works well for...

Re: Question for people who use GOG (Good Old Games)...

Rath, when you downloaded and installed the GOG Downloader, what did you do then? In my experience, the process to download games using the Downloader is the following: 1. Go to your game library on the GOG website. 2. Choose a game you want to download and click on it. 3. Click on the downwards-fac...

Re: Question for people who use GOG (Good Old Games)...

Ah, OK. Thanks for your advice! :) Hmm, just wondering now ... does GOG have any games that are not at least a decade old? ;) I'd have thought that was GOG's entire reason for existing - to provide old games for old gamers, for the sake of nostalgia. (And also, for those old gamers, to introduce ne...

Re: What are you playing now?

I'm trying to finish Batman Arkham Knight. BAK initially received a lot of bad reviews for technical problems on the PC, but that was fixed a long time ago. In fact, everyone got the DLC (all of it) for free as an apology, although I imagine this would've pissed off the people who bought the DLC. Fo...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story (Potential Spoilers).

No, what we're seeing is idiots. :lol: On the Twitter-Verse, back when The Last Jedi was getting so much hate (since I actually enjoyed it) - I was actively hunting down #TheLastJedi hashtags and purposely engaging people who bitched about it - especially if they said the prequels (Episodes I, II a...

Re: Question for people who use GOG (Good Old Games)...

He's literally saying use the Downloader to download the games. But keep GoG Galaxy running also, since that will keep the games up to date, rather than you (if you wanted) going to GoG and occasionally seeing if the game or the installers have been updated. Exactly. I'd say just use GOG Galaxy if ...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story (Potential Spoilers).

Okay, I know I'm months late here, but I'd really like to give my two cents. I loved The Last Jedi. It's not perfect by any means, but I really enjoyed it. Sure, a vocal minority disliked the movie, but it was the same thing with The Empire Strikes Back. At the time of its release, both critics and ...

There's a Black Friday sale on both Steam and GOG right now. The sale (on both sites) ends on Nov 27.

So, I guess the downloader is the best way to go, then? After all, I doubt this game will ever be updated. ;)
I'd say use the Downloader to actually download the games and then use Galaxy to keep them updated. And yes, sometimes Galaxy will update itself as well (just like Steam).

Re: Question for people who use GOG (Good Old Games)...

Coming back to the thread topic (Steam and GOG) - This article from Lifehacker summarises the good, the bad, and the ugly about them both. :) It's from early 2016, though... any idea if it's still accurate? Everyone's experience differs. I've never had a problem with Steam's customer support (and I...

Re: Question for people who use GOG (Good Old Games)...

The likes of Facebook are not a good place for any kind of discussion. The limitations of the size of post, linking options, formatting etc. are not conducive to such conversations. [...] Many social media sites allow for little more than drive-by quips, which seems to bring out the worst in people...

Re: Question for people who use GOG (Good Old Games)...

Word. I'd love to see social networks die and people return to the comfy cozy homes that are internet forums. Or at least some kind of exodus. That'd be amazing. I can't stand social networks. It used to just be a place to keep in touch with people you knew or your family (that's what I got it for)...
