Really? It's either a big oversight from GOG or are they really just trying to squeeze every single last dime out of it? Oh well, would've bought it but there goes one sale.

Also, to clarify, I already bought the game twice, 1x vanilla on one Steam account, 1x with Ashes of Malmouth on another Steam account. I wanted it hopefully on my GOG account, so this is not just a matter of being a "cheapskate". Why bother listing a Definitive Edition (with a small discount compared to buying everything individually) if you're going to ignore it?

Not sure how GOG works it's Definitive Editions, but you do realise you can buy the individual parts on sale still? There's nothing different about getting the DE over buying individually.

The way it works with the Steam DE is that if you own the base game, then the other parts will be cheaper via the DE even when there's a sale. Do you own the base game on GOG? That might be why you're not seeing the sort of reductions you're expecting.

The 'difference' is Definitive Edition comes with a 15$ discount by itself WITHOUT sale (As an incentive for getting everything). When the game is on sale on Steam, the discount from the sale is additive with that innate discount of being 'in a bundle'. If you're going to just buy the main game, then yeah that wouldn't be a problem. But if you might as well be getting everything, you're losing out on that 'Edition discount' you otherwise would get. If we're going to praise GOG for it's "pro-consumer antics", then we should be consistent, because if the Definitive Edition is intended to not be on sale at the same time to maximize profits and is ignored when it clearly exists and is a thing, is not a very "pro-consumer" move.


EDIT: Yes on Steam, it's going to be cheaper via the DE +PLUS (Plus, this being the key part here) the sale discount from whatever deal going's on at the same time. The way it works in GOG now by them deciding not to put the DE on sale is you have to choose, the deal from the DE OR the deal from the sale, when it clearly is and should be both.

Weird, but that's GOG for you.
