Not ISOs, it's their own type of Setup/ZIP file. You download that, run it, and the game installs. Very easy, second only to Steam in terms of simplicity.

I've read 7pm GMT, and since I'm on GMT time, it was one hour left.

So, there you have it, it's EA, starting with "Privateer", "Dungeon Keeper" and "Ultima Underworld".

GOG's site and selection of games (and their price!) is amazing, but dear god, their marketing sucks. I actually saw part of that webcast (a friend was watching, I forgot about the possibility that it could be Lucasarts myself), and I'm glad I finally got a look at the idiot that's in charge of marketing. Does anyone remember them announcing they were out of business, leaving everyone who bought something from them wondering if they lost their games forever, only to announce it was all a joke some time later? They say they pull these 'zany' stunts because the gaming industry takes itself too seriously, and they might be right about that, but this is just moronic.

I'm not even saying that because I'm angry it isn't Lucasarts (although that would have been nice). Like I said, I forgot about that possibility. Seeing the conclusion of this drawn-out weirdness just brought back the memories of all their previous tricks. Blegh.

"leaving everyone who bought something from them wondering if they lost their games forever"

Well, no. They specifically told everyone that they would be able to download their games again before taking down the site. So they didn't leave everyone wondering, only the people who did not bother to read the entire news post

Actually, that sound better than Steam, since Steam itself is DRM...
