2 Legit 2 Quit: Gamersgate

9 08 2011

After talking about Good Old Games in my last post, it’s time to talk about another purveyor of fine games. This time for games not so old. Of course, there are a whole lot of those – with Valve’s Steam leading the bunch – but for the Filipino digital customer, quite a few of those can be inconvenient. Well, here’s one that’s perfect – no-frills and no-DRM – well, most of the time. It’s Gamersgate!

So what makes Gamersgate different different from the rest of the pack?

Well, first of all, is the easy-to-access storefront. No third-party apps, no complicated crap. Just log on and register like Good Old Games – then you can start buying stuff.

The second thing about it is the wide selection. Literally, this UK-based company has the best of both worlds, with some pretty obscure titles thrown in there.

Third is the fact they copy the Steam strategy: tons and tons of sales. It’s a sure best that your wanted game will get a price drop of up to 75%. For the Filipino gamer – who is more cheapskate than human – that’s a huge selling point. You can get games for less than a pound sterling – which racks up to less than a hundred pesos. Plus payment can be via Paypal, which is a major plus.

Minimal to no DRM is the next thing that should get your attention. When you buy a game, it only comes with the DRM that comes with the game – no additional crap. If the game is DRM-less, after the initial download, you can keep it to your heart’s content.

Right now, Gamersgate is doing their summer sale – yeah, typhoon season in the Philippines is when it’s summer everywhere else – which is the best time as any to get on it. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
