Armies of longing RPG fans have pegged their hopes for a digital distribution version of Planescape: Torment on retro-game specialist GOG.com. It has delivered. The game can be purchased there for mere USD 9.99 in all its DRM-free glory.
To be honest, I thought GOG.com owed their customers at least a free game after their botched PR stunt on the occasion of the site’s leaving beta and launching. Not that it bothered me personally that much, but judging by the reactions from fellow gamers and GOG-ers it shouldn’t have gotten away so lightly. Now everybody seems ready to forgive and forget as if securing the rights for Planescape: Torment was some act of immense altruism and not a self-interested for-profit enterprise.
Yeah, I get misanthropic like that sometimes.
But Planescape: Torment on GOG.com: great news, right?
