Oh boy, just what the world needed, another third party gaming client.  And they say the big deal is you don't need an account, but you already had to have one to buy anything on GOG.com anyway, so it's not like they're really saving you any hassle there.

I doubt they will have a booth presence at E3, so sending out a press release during that time would probably just get more lost in the shuffle of everything else at that time.

Yeah, don't need another client. So taking a wait and see on this one. Thing is nostalgia gets me to buy a lot of GOG games but I actually rarely play them.

So, assuming the client is not needed, that would mean the site itself the way it is now wouldn't go away. I'm a little confused as to the reason behind the client. I guess one could look at it as convenience.

If I hated DRM enough not to install Steam, it would make sense.  Now that they have new games, updating is nice.  After all, if I can get a new indie on Steam or GOG for the same price, I'll go steam to let it keep the game updated.  That's one less box for steam for people already leaning toward DRM free.

I don't know, I ran XFire and Steam for a few years and having 2 clients running never seem to get in the way. I like GoG enough that I'd probably run Galaxy provided it's footprint is small enough for run on my older PC too. I'm not at all surprised GoG's doing this; when classics started showing up on Steam I figured it wouldn't be long before something like this would be coming down the pipe.
