Classic games The Lion King (1994) and Disney's Aladdin (1993) have been delisted from Steam without so much as a word.
Thankfully GOG.com have given a short warning of just over 24 hours in this forum post announcement :
Another Disney game, The Jungle Book, has been delisted from Steam but still available from GOG.com - who knows if more Disney games will be delisted in the future?
Canonical, the developer of the popular Linux distribution Ubuntu, recently announced their upcoming removal of support for 32-bit applications. Many Linux application developers were extremely displeased with this development as it would mean a large percentage of older Linux games would no longer be supported on the most popular Linux distribution.
Valve has been at the forefront of development for gaming on Linux, and 32-bit support has been critical to their initiative. Pierre-Loup Griffais, a major programmer on Valve’s Linux team, had previously implied on Twitter that Steam would be “switching our focus to a different distribution” in response to Canonical dropping 32-bit support from Ubuntu.
After backlash from Valve and from Linux gamers, Canonical backtracked on their stance. They announced on their blog that “We will change our plan and build selected 32-bit i386 packages for Ubuntu 19.10 and 20.04 LTS. We will put in place a community process to determine which 32-bit packages are needed to support legacy software, and can add to that list post-release if we miss something that is needed.”
In the aftermath, Griffais posted on the “Steam for Linux” discussion forum, stating:
He also states:
At the very least, Steam will be compatible with Ubuntu for the time being. Thankfully Canonical was willing to listen and accommodate to community backlash.
Are you a Ubuntu gamer? If so, do you plan on sticking with Ubuntu?
The closed beta for GOG Galaxy 2.0 has finally begun. With it comes the much-touted integration functionality, allowing users to launch games without having to go through separate launchers. The current list of launchers available to integrate are Xbox Live, Battle.net, the Epic Games Store, Origin, Playstation Network, Steam, and Uplay. However, the only "official" integration is with Xbox Live. The addition of more Official Integrations should be coming sooner than later, with Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney expressing interest in integration earlier this month, also confirming that Epic Games was currently in talks with GOG regarding launcher integration.
Integrating accounts is a painless process. Opening Galaxy 2.0's settings menu will immediately bring you to the integrations tab.
The features available to each of the launcher integrations varies. GOG separates the feature list between Games (Library, Installing & Launching, Achievements, and Game Time), and Friends (Friends List, Chat, and Friend recommendations).
One of the most popular launchers on PC, Steam, has a majority of these features active.
Curiously, while Xbox Live is considered to be an "Official Integration", there are still restrictions in place similar to the "Community Integrations".
Did you get in to the Galaxy 2.0 beta? What are your thoughts on the account integration system?
For those interested, you can sign up for the closed beta at the GOG Galaxy website.
Here are screenshots of the new interface:
Here are screenshots of the other integrations:
Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, has surprised us all by confirming that talks are ongoing with GOG.com to integrate Epic Games Store with GOG and their service, GOG Galaxy 2.0. This is surprising considering that Epic Games Store strategy has been one of exclusivity - although we note that this pertains mostly to Steam rather than Microsoft or other online distribution platforms.
See the tweet here:
We await news on what happens next - will Epic Games Store games get any rich integrations with GOG Galaxy 2.0?
In this article in German from gamestar.de, CD Projekt head Piotr Karwoski was quoted saying:
PC Gamer has also come forward to state that GOG Galaxy 2.0 is officially partnered with Microsoft:
The battle for the ultimate PC games platform continues. Check out our (admittedly flawed) platform features overview wiki page for a comparison of Steam, GOG.com, Microsoft Store, Epic Games Store and others.
