That's true as well. Are all games supported yet? The patch notes for when they implemented it led me to believe that only a few games would use it, haven't really kept up with what the updates have done since then

Actually not sure. I tend to just download my games directly and backup saves to onedrive myself. I recalled Retrowire mentioning the cloud save thing a while back when I mentioned I don't use galaxy, Out of curiosity, I'll go through a few games on the client and see if I notice some exceptions.

It's important to know what the rules are first, so that, when you decide to break them, you can better judge the effect.

Looked at oniken, mdk, and neverwinter nights diamond. Only the last had cloud save support, so I'm guessing it is still pretty hit or miss for that feature. Shame that.

So all the BS that I hate about steam? awesome I'll probably start using gog. And word on Skyrim legacy coming to gog?

you hate feature? I mean I can understand hating achievements(don't think GOG has them, but still), but the ones I mentioned are good. at worst, you can just ignore them. you hate friend lists? the only ways I can see that happen are if you have no friends or the only ones you have are a******s.

I never bought a single game from GOG. Yet, I have 30 or so of them on my library. :p

Anyway, I don't use the client, since having the game's installation on my backup HDD is surprisingly useful. And I can install games on my wife's Laptop without having to log in any service there.
Harvest Moon on Steam? Really? http://store.steampowered.com/app/585900/Harvest_Moon_Light_of_Hope/
May not be a "real" HM, but it does look fun.

If you're old school, you can just download an .exe and install the game.

If you're up-to-date and sane, you can download the Galaxy Client and have it manage your games and updates for you.

don't think GOG has them

It does have achievements but only for some games. I know Witcher 3 had them but not sure which other games support them.

New Vegas? Make sure you have a high endurance. Otherwise you'll miss out on one of the features....

Must've been Summer last year. Everytime I get into a Bethesda game I'll probably need 300 hours. Came out with Fallout 3.

You either use the Galaxy Client or login and download it in parts via your browers/own download manager. The client isn't required to download or be running,but does the make the dl easier. They use to have a download manager, lighter, prior to the galaxy client. They might still have it.

You don't lose access to it ever, you could login 10 yrs later and download it from a different country on a different computer.

Online verification not required. Just run the setup and click the shortcut for the exe or find it in games folder (or launch through galaxy if that's what you like)
