Games Changed!!!! GOG Connect Winter 2018 (Descent Divine Divinity Dustforce DX Europa Universalis: Rome Gold Order of Battle: World War II Panzer Corps Tharsis Two World Epic Edition)


#1

It would appear to be a good time to pick up some more freebies on GOG Connect:

You will get the games for free added to your GOG account if you own them on Steam; and if your Steam and GOG accounts are connected.

Sadly, I don’t own I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream on Steam. That’s because through the years I’ve bought it for at least 3 times, because the game is old, and the first edition I had just kept freezing on certain moments and didn’t let me progress while playing for certain characters. Still, the story was so bizarre and gloom and the writing was so brilliant that I wanted to continue. The second copy was a heavy pirated version, and the 3rd was just fine, but it’s on a disc, and now I only have a laptop with no dvd-rom.

So when I saw it on a sale on Steam, I thought “why would I need a 4th I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream”? And here, right in front of me, lies the perfect answer. I would need it to grab the fifth one.


#3

Dang, don’t own any of them on my Steam. -sigh- well, maybe next time. Still amazing GOG does this.

Wow, good addition!

I don’t have it but I want it, though such is life. I want too many things and had to draw a line somewhere.


#7

Yes…just yes. @delenn13 has great taste!


#8

Out with the old, in with the new! Five fresh game titles have been added as of today, 12/20/2018.

Fair warning, GOG Connect freebies are usually only active whilst a sales event is “live”. If you have these games on Steam and want to add them to your GOG account, don’t procrastinate, get them while you can.

Waiting for Terraria to appear on Connect. If that ever happens, it’ll be awesome. Still don’t have any of these, but always surprises what games they put on Connect. You look at places like Origin that mostly gave away terrible, old games. lol


#10

hmm that’s so weird, i get that strange thing where it already registers i own Syberia, but not Hard West so i can’t claim it, dang it GoG make the refresh button work :confounded:


#11

It might be a timing thing, how long have you had Hard West?


EDIT:
No probably not a timing thing… I have had Convoy forever, and GOG says that I don’t… lol, so I can’t claim it…

Convoy date: June 2018

GOG Connect Fail


#12

I encourage everyone to connect their Steam games to their GOG account.

I did it for the shadowrun series I bought on chrono.gg. Now I have it on two platforms for when Epic bankrupts Steam. :wink:

Seriously though, do it to support the DRM-free experience.


#13

i think you have to make sure you played it at least once, but i could be wrong


#14

I have played it though, so who knows… :man_shrugging:


#15

Try to refresh the Connect Cache with the button on the page, if that fails, clear cache of the current browser and if that fails, try a new browser like Vivaldi (any new browser). I’ve had this problem before, usually it was resolved by a refresh (which takes a few hours to actually refresh).


#16

Yeah, this is the first failure I have encountered too… Only other time was I bought a game on Steam during a sale, and it didn’t register during the GOG Connect time frame.


EDIT:
Just showed up, who knows what made any difference. I didn’t even refresh, just went back to the page again…


#17

naa @Rhyagelle is spot on, it’s a simple update issue with GoG, and all one can do is wait until it updates “proper” and registers
only thing that makes it strange is when X games are read as owned but some in the same batch aren’t. Guessing it would be something about the way they go about inputting the titles, like maybe some gets inputted later/slower a few minutes after a prior update point, rather than waiting until all are entered and then do the update
(example i did refresh but still had to wait for it register mine -and ofc not the first time, browser or not)
