Lebron 11 Akron vs Miami for Sale: These are so comfortable and perfect for trail running. Plus, I got a great deal. This was definitely a win/win for me.
air jordan 4 oreo for sale: Very narrow shoe at the widest point of my foot. These don't fit like my other pumas, which I've always worn and never had a problem. They are Awesome looking shoes so it was disappointing that they don't fit.
Kobe 8 Game Royal for Sale: PERFECT Size is fit, outlook cool. Hope there are more chance to trade with the sender. All good thanks ^^
Nike 599424-010 KD VI: I do love the shoes. They are soft and fit well. They only problem was I read a review that they ran big so I ordered a half size to small. When I got them they were to tight so I had to return them and get my size 8. They are true to size.
nike shox mens: I've been wearing Vibram's now as an activity shoe for a year now and finally made the decision to switch over to toe shoes as a daily wear so I needed something more understated. The Maiori is certainly that, with a muted black upper and very subtle overlay design, also in black. The only thing that isn't black is the Vibrams emblem on the underside arch of the foot tread. The hightop appearance lets them pass as regular shoes to the casual observer, which was my main reason for choosing them. The fit on the Maiori is a bit different than other Vibram shoes I own; namely that they are very snug around the toes and the ball of the foot. If you have wide feet then these will probably be a challenge to get a good fit in. The last 3 toes in particular are a VERY tight fit. If you normally wear socks with your Vibrams you'll almost certainly want to go up a size for this model. I normally wear a FiveFingers KSO M40, in the Maiori I had to go up to a M41. They are still only barely wide enough for my feet, but I think that if I went up to a M42 they would be too long. The back-ankle strap could have used more velcro on it; with my feet there is maybe 1/2 of overlap between the hook and the loop sides of the strap. These shoes are mostly made out of a neoprene type material, which means they don't breathe the same way other Vibrams do. This is good if you are using them for daily wear and step in a puddle; your feet won't be wet. But if you are wearing them for hours on end you'll develop that issue anyway from perspiration that can't escape. The neoprene also keeps your feet a lot warmer than a regular toe shoe. It's worth noting that my Maiori shoes had toes 4-5 joined together in the sole molding. This does stablise these two smallest toes, but it also removes that range of motion that you have with other toe shoes.

As much as I'd like such a feature, it's just not always possible. GOG did give a warning about Original War and A.R.M.A. (Even creating a promo for A.R.M.A. called Last Chance) one month before their removal and there were still people that had no idea that those games were going to be removed. Sometimes, there is just nothing that can be done about these things.

Customer transparency is important. It's depressing when good games get removed from GOG or other digital marketplaces, but it would be awesome if GOG could provide a date and time within a red message box in the description or something to forewarn us gamers. :-)

Certainly a must have feature for the site. Your handling of the Fallout removal is the way these things must be done.

As a side note, Fallout is available once more on steam, but not on gog. I think that speaks volumes about Bethesda's policies, and it does not sound nice at all.

ViciousAlek: Of course it's going to be for legal reasons, normally due to the original company losing the rights to something contained within the game. This should be obvious.

I'd be more concerned with the (thankfully rare) instances where games have been removed from *download*, not just for sale. But regarding this topic, if they can legally do so it'd be nice it they did.

I understand that you sometimes might not have time to make an announcement, or that there might sometimes be legal or ethical issues involved, or business reasons for not advertising it when you lose a game.

That being said, when you can give some kind of warning, it would be nice. And the game's forum--where people basically don't go unless they already own the game, which in fact isn't visible by default unless they own the game--is not the appropriate place for it.

If it's not possible or GOG just doesn't want to do front page announcements whenever a game gets taken down, is there NO alternatives we could use like pushing a notification/email to those of us who have that game on our wishlists so that we can buy it before it gets pulled down? I really think this would be a great thing to do to both aid "GOG game collectors" and allow fans of that game to not miss out on the game!

Now Guilty Gear X2 Reload was just removed and I only found out about it because, you guessed, someone on the general forums brought it up. It was mentioned on the game's page that it was removed by a GOG staffer but, once again, there is no reason whatsoever for it to not be mentioned on the front page. Again, I have no problem with last-minute, no-warning-in-advance removals, since shit like that happens all the time, out of the blue, gobsmacking you in the face. But please let the rest of us know in an easy-to-see front page announcement to avoid confusion for the rest of us when suddenly a game we thought was here no longer is.

I cannot pretend to understand the complexities of licenses and legal jargon GOG has to navigate through to deliver what is, in my opinion, the best digital game marketplace on the web.

But if, legalities not with holding, GOG.com can give advance warning, please do so. I tend to wait for sales because budgeting, but for disappearing games I could make an exception.

With Re-Volt and Wallace and Gromit removed without any prior notification, you guys at GOG.com really need to give us better warning in advance. The way you did so with Fallout needs to be recreated more often if possible with maybe better deals on games you plan to remove. In general though, I agree with a lot of those here, you need to give us better warning because, as I'm an avid collector of GOG.com games, being given better noice before a game is gone, possibly for good, gives me more incentive to buy it and snag it before it goes.

Just recently the Wallace & Gromit game and Re-Volt were removed and I didn't find out about it until I stumbled on the forums. Re-Volt is supposedly going to come back once some negotiations are taken care of but W&G is gone for good, and without so much as a peep from a GOG staff member, much less a front-page advisory. That is ridiculous. If you're forced to remove something at the last second and aren't allowed to warn anyone, fine. But not even announcing that it was removed to begin with? There is NO excuse for that whatsoever.

While it's great that GOG maintains access to download any game already purchased (Don't EVER even think of changing this!), it would be a nice idea to give people warning that a game is going to be removed. I expect there will be a surge of sales as everyone tries to buy it before it's gone. It's a win for everyone.

If it's the result of a legal notice (which i would actually find strange for properly licensed games), i can understand this not being possible. But if the game was simply licensed for sale for a limited time i see no reason why not to put up a "Get it while you can!" notice when the license was about a month from expiring.

@Dwarden: Here's an updated list. http://www.gogwiki.com/wiki/List_of_games_removed_from_GOG

I can also confirm that, once bought, the games and bonus content are still on your shelf and can be downloaded and installed at any time. The only thing you can't do (as stated below) is check out the game's original page, as it is no longer there.

It is my understanding that some games are licensed by GoG, for a finite amount of time. It stands to reason then, that they should be able to let us know when said games will be removed. That said, some games on that list (above) have actually returned to GoG (Original War, Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising, Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis (renamed ArmA: Cold War Assault), Perimeter, and Soldiers: Heroes of World War II).

If there is a game that has been removed that you are interested in, definitely let them know on the general forum! I ve seen threads of such games that the devs have responded to and gotten back, so it's always worth a shot. Cheers!

Games are removed due to legal issues forcing their removal. They cannot put themselves in such a legal predicament.

there has been, I would snatch it if I already hadn't....

What I'm referring to is how it's unknown who owns

Once bought removed games are still available in your account. XIII is no longer available but I can still download it. Like Steam, once bought you can always download it again

I'm not sure they could actually do this. I think if they were served with a takedown notice or were otherwise advised to take down a specific game immediately, they a) wouldn't have time to notify users before removing it and b) it might not be legal, considering they're essentially saying "it's no longer legal for us to host this, grab it before we have to remove it" which is dodgy as.

@ DyneAmite That's a great idea - then maybe people wouldn't have to miss out on owning it before it gets taken off. I have a feeling it may be a contractual obligation that prevents them from doing that though.

Maybe add some sort of 'Going Soon' box on the frontpage so people can nab a soon-to-be-retiree if they want. It'd certainly bring in a last burst of moolah for a game that's potentially had months worth of coding put into it.
