Darn, and you have to have them on GoG! So not everything is golden there.
Too bad, I wanned to keep in mind the extras. Reading backstory novellas for games sounded cool. Well, there's still replacementdocs.

This "theory" doesn't have solid ground because GOG have never given away any DLCs, Packs etc for free. Only "vanilla" and/or complete titles. ;)

I seems we have a really different view on what's DLCs and (Expansion) Packs. :smile2:
Demos and extras are not something I would EVER notice, and they are always free hence no point in listing them as "Free games on GOG". xD

Well, if you don't consider DLC stuff that are LITERALY CALLED DLC, then right, we differ.


The point of listing demos is, that GoG has some. They don't simply deal in full games. Sure, those are not the main goal of anyone, but until the concept exist, separate from the main games, as half the AAA titles are demos which'll either get fixed (geta full release) or not... A shame on the gaming industry for not releasing demos for the leading games.

BranjoHello, guys. :hello:

I am sorry, but I agree with what twillight said before.

Incidentally, there are Deluxe Editions, Collector Editions, etc. which offer Extras such as Art Books, Hint Books, Maps, Wallpapers, OST, etc. that enrich the content, or rather, the universe in which the game is inserted.

I, at least, value such Extras. In fact, several Japanese (Bishoujo) games that I own (in one of the previous posts) have those desirable Extras.

Hello,Branjo... :byesad:

Too bad that Origin has withdrawn that promotion of the games for free “On the House”... :no:

There _is_ one circumvent, actually. From time to time GOG opens so called "GOG Connect" that takes into consideration about two dozen known indy titles from Steam. If you own any of them on Steam, GOG duplicates it on GOG account.

Nice info. :OK: Thanks, Grandmaster Spectre-man! :kosta:

Full Throttle (remastered)
 
The game is there for almost 2 more days (43 more hours).


EDIT: Also, if you spend ANY money at all (literaly, it only wants 1 USA cent), you get Fantasy General as bonus. I like this attitude.
