    HOW DOES GOG CONNECT WORK?

    To connect your library with GOG.com, sign in to your active Steam account via this page. NOTE: Make sure your Steam Privacy Settings & Profile Status are set to public.


    You'll be able to permanently import all the games listed below to your GOG.com library – assuming you own them. The eligible games are limited-time offers made possible by participating developers and publishers, so stay tuned for more games to come.


    You can connect only one Steam account with your GOG.com library. This process is permanent – choose wisely!

    I have a nice collection like that on Humble but GOG's good too :p Thanks for the heads up.

    "YOUR ACCOUNTS ARE BEING CONNECTED

    Due to exceedingly high demand this may take up to several days, please check back later. Thank you for your patience."

    I was just reading the FAQ, it says due to the limitations on the API it might put you in a queue lol

    This is pretty cool! For instance, I guess I could buy a game on Steam, but also have a DRM-free copy for my second PC or something. Or buy through Steam and play offline on the laptop. I can think of a few nice usecases for this, nice!

    Oops something went wrong lol.

    That was CCPs post when the eve servers blew up for like a week. Actually i think it was "oops something happened"

    Been a number of years. :p

    Gotta love detaied error reports.

    Think the only game on there i got is mount and blade, and i used my steam key for a retail version also so i could have them at different versions for different mods.

    Then steam updated my game and broke my favorite mod when they removed never update this game.....i start up steam one day its updating junk i think ok then i look at the update list and nearly loose my mind.

    Well it is a nice option to have i guess, but yea most or all of those games on steam will run fine in offline mode.

    Arma 3, batman ak and gta 5 will not run in offline mode, even think bak says it is a one time thing once you copy the key into it but nope last time i tried to play offline with it would not run at all.

    So if gog gets any of those game i would be extatic.

    If its an offline thing, i guess I understand. Especially now when it's vacation time and ppl want to take their laptops to their summer house or camping or something where there is no internet :)

    Yea we got internet that goes down here too often, they were working on the lines or something in the area other week and had no net for 3 days.

    And all gogs games because they have zero drm will run offline just fine.

    Too damn many games have online only hooks in them, batman is a single player game and why the hell should it not run in offline? Because wb and others do not want you to actually own your game.

    GTA5 i could generally not be arsed about the multiplayer with the rampant cheating and hacks, and think i been online all of once. But if i want to play the single player offline that shold be an option if you ask me i should not have to connect to social club to play the single player game. But no connect no launch.

    And arma i have no clue what they were thinking if the laucher cannot reach their servers the entire game will not launch.

    No harm in having owned games in two places at the very least.

    I think the 5 days is how long the offer to get those games added is for, once that time is up, you can't add those specific games (Time limited offer)

    Haven't added any myself so could be something else too
