If it's like the Witcher 2 when you buy it from GoG you'll get a steam key as well. 

 

You mean the reverse.

No. I mean what I said. When I bought it on GoG they gave me a steam key as a backup.

Huh, really? I remember that you get a key if you buy on Steam to activate on GOG, through the so-called GOG Backup system. Know this because this is exactly what I did, to give a friend the game. I never received a Steam key when I bought it on GOG.

Well thinking about it a little more when I bought it there was a sale. So I don't know if that's something that always happens or not.

Why do companies try to exploit every single god damn thing there is to exploit. God, I am 23 years old, but back in my days developers used to add new features in patches, and not market said features as free DLCs because they love their customers.

Are you referring to this? I was on my way here to post this bit of news, coincidentally..

While yes it is a marketing gimmick you can be damn sure I'll be buying a game from a company that is giving all the dlc away for free over one who is going to charge $15-20 for a 1 hour mission that they literally cut out of their game.

 

I think it's good. If you look at The Witcher 2 Cd Projekt Red supported that game amazingly well. It's a company that deserves support more so than most other developers and publishers out there.

 

On the other hand I'm considering buying Dragon Age: Inquisition but I worry about parts being cut out of the game and sold to me later for substantial fees. And the game probably wont be supported for very long after it's released.

16 free dlc.     two out of 4 i know about is alternative outfit and different bread :rolleyes: other is the armor and one new mission

 

new mission is cool.   the rest are not worth anything and hardly add any value to the game

 

 

i love the witcher series, but this marketing is a bit over the top.   they are hardly an extra, like a mission. they are the stuff they wanted in a game and most like did not have time to finish, so they left it as downloadable content later.

 

 

new mission sure, but new beard??

I guess some people are disappointed they're not getting charged for cosmetics. The nerve on those CPR people! :laugh:

I guess it is better than with the 2nd, when they used shady law firms in Germany to sue people for suspected piracy. They didn't care about proving guilt, but about settling for some quick $.

 

This stupid PR move doesn't surprise me at all, knowing how they and GOG operate.

Has the gave been finalized (gone gold) yet?  DLC looks like stuff that is done already and can just be in the game without calling it DLC the day after the game is released in February.
