“There were really a lot of hints,” said Good Old Games, the digital download site which unceremoniously ’closed’ at the weekend. “You were expecting it, and we now confirm it: we are back with a brand new website.” So there you go. It launches at 1PM UK time tomorrow. Whoop-de-do.
In a bizarre press conference this evening, Good Old Games’ management appeared dressed as monks. Surprise, surprise: a pack of Baldur’s Gate and its expansion, including several additional goodies, is to be included in the service too, as rumoured yesterday. It’ll cost $9.99. It was officially announced as “the big surprise” at the end of the press conference, despite having been clearly present in the demonstration of the games library right at the start.
