Ehm, what lesson? That GoG needed to make a maintanence break in order to move from Beta-phase? Oh well...have fun :)
:) No, of course that you can never trust anyone in this world than yourself. Even not the guys who look nice like clowns and give you treats. Especially not them. And thats a lesson everybody should learn.
On the other hand. I think its understandable. GOG threatened people that they will never ever be able to download their games. GOG never actually promised that download would be possible again. If by chance they hadn't done so before, it would have been too late. Now it turns out, it was only for three days and a joke. Okay, but the feeling remains.
I archived my 6 games anyway. Maybe I can also archive them in some web based data storage service for higher security.
