Very lame, I'd call it bad publicity, but I suppose it got people talking about the site.
It didn't bother me much - It's quite fitting with the easygoing, nature of the writing on the site and their other promotions with jokes etc.
A bit more extreme, but not entirely out of character for them.
I'm just happy that the service isn't gone, really - I've been a very happy customer of theirs since their closed beta began and they've consistently impressed me with both their attitude and service.
Now if they'd just start adding more GOOD old games to their lineup and less bargain-bin shite we'd really be getting somewhere. Here's to hoping.
A stunt ... for publicity ... that wasn't even funny or clever ... ?!
They are still dressed as monks and referring to themselves as if they were a church.
To be fair, I hadn't heard of it, now I have!
for being re-launched, their site is still showing closure messages.
doesnt have to be funny or clever it still worked
New site goes live tomorrow, 1PM GMT. I've updated to reflect this fact.
Cant really blame them in this climate, there are companies doing alot worse.
I never heard about GOG until it 'Shut down'.
Ill be sure to have a look tomorrow and keep a small companies like this on it's feet.
Um. Sorry, but GOG you were proper dicks this time. Surely there's better ways to get your PR?
Pheh, seems to be another of the places following the 'any PR is good PR' mantra.
While they have got some publicity, i hope they realise it may still cost them.
Personally, i'm much less likely to trust them now they've demonstrated they're willing to pull such stunts
Yay! Glad they're back - and still without DRM
A stunt like that gets you more customers than they loose. I'm now a lost customer but the comments show that 2 new customers came right along as I left.
Clearly brilliant publicity. I'd never heard of gog before it was 'closed down' and was gutted that I hasn't known cause I wanted to check it out. Now it's back i'll probably be bying something of there later.
so much hate against them....
me, personally, i can appreciate the attempt. just to pull a leg to gather some attention. and its not even "harmful". not like they took ur money and run away with it.
good for them. good stunt and good to have it back.
my thoughts exactly
I say, good for them !
I can appreciate it, and it's great that they're not going anywhere, but I just don't like that style of marketing. It's obviously worked though, plenty of folks out there won't have heard anything of them until the past couple of days.
Didnt you ever learn that there is no such thing as Bad PR... lol seriously look at how many people talked about it and I bet a lot of those people probably never even went to the site but will now that its relaunched, hell I did, I never went to the site until now so ya...
