The legal process behind getting those expansions is, I agree, painstakingly long and I can assure all of you that GOG.com team is as tired and disappointed with this situation as you are. However, in that case, I don’t believe anyone ‘fucked up’. The process of adding games to our catalog is long and even if EA has clarified things with their lawyers, it doesn’t mean we can release them. Remember that games (especially old games and especially on GOG.com) are not potatoes: dig it, wash it, sell it. Making them run on modern OSes, bundling them with goodies, testing the sh*t out of them, etc. takes time. Currently we’re negotiating the deal, and I can tell you that your support and interest in this particular issue has definitely helped (thanks!). You’re free to make any assumptions you want, but GOG.com has proven again and again that we never “dump and forget” our releases, even though spending countless hours on research, business negotiations, testing, updating and patching significantly narrows our profit margins. Remember Space Rangers 2 Reboot--which was free? It’s pretty easy to persuade publishers to sell something extra. It’s really hard to convince them to give it away for free--but we’re doing it because this is the way we treat our game(r)s.
In light of that, perhaps a policy of not releasing games until their expansions could be included would make things easier for everyone involved?
