GOG is back online after mass confusion and hysteria
Sep 23rd 2010, 2:30 pm EST

GOG.com (Good Old Games) has quickly become many classic gamers favourite place on the net to buy old games. The company has taken great pains to ensure that all of the classic games sold through their service are compatible with todays operating systems. The best part about it all is that every game sold on GOG is DRM-Free.

On September 19th, GOG temporarily closed down shop so they could revamp their site. However, after temporarily closing down, this message posted on GOG’s main page, “We have recently had to give serious thought to whether we could really keep GOG.com the way it is”, led everyone to believe that the company was gone for good. Customer’s weren’t happy to say the least and some felt like they were ripped off due to the lack of proper notice. This lead to a PR nightmare for GOG, having to backtrack on their previous comment to reiterate the fact that they had only “temporarily” shut down the site. After posting a sincere apology on their main page, things seemed to slowly calm down.

Earlier this morning at 8:00am EST, GOG came back online (after a slight delay). The new GOG layout is faster, more streamlined and sexier. Content is easier to find and there is a heavy emphasis on community. You can check out the new features & services introduced in the new GOG refresh here.
