Star Wars Bundle: Steam vs. GOG

7 posts in this topic

I would like to buy the either the Star Wars Collection from Steam or the Star Wars Saber Bundle from GOG.

 

My main concern is compatibility with the older games. Is the GOG more compatible than the Steam or vice versa? Is there an advantage going with one over the other? I have Windows 8.1 and MSI GTX 970, if that matters.

 

Any information is appreciated.  :wub:

I would think compatibility would depend more on the actual games than the platform you purchase them from.

I assume GoG updated the games before releasing them. I just finished a review for Jedi Academy  bought on Steam and if you don't mod it it's a little rough on the edges. It still works but option wise is a mess. No good screen resolutions and the video settings are so much fucked up that i had to change the brightness directly from my monitor.
I remember having some compatibility problems with Kotor 1&2 as well, a few random crashes but i don't remember the causes right now.

Take my words with a pinch of salt but i trust more GoG for games in general, more so for old ones, than Steam.

From my experience, GoG.com handle old games much better than Steam.

And they actually continue to offer support for them, although new updates might be a tad slow to come out.

 

Not to mention its always cheaper on GoG, and they use that fair pricing stuff.

I would always get older games off of GOG. GOG makes sure that the games work, Steam just throws them on the store often with a lot of problems. Sometimes changing some setting can get games working on Steam, sometimes not.

Not to mention its always cheaper on GoG

Last I checked GOG's Star Wars sale was about 50% off and Steams was 75%, at least that's how it was two days ago.

Ah yes, on theese discounted bundles, sure, Steam is cheaper, purely due to the entire pack being discounted at 77%, and GoG only at 76% for the saber bundle.

But beyond this, GoG is always cheaper.

 

Becides.... No DRM, fair price and actual support for the games, beats Steam discounts any day.

Seeing as how I spent 30 minutes trying to get Soul Reaver to work on Steam, and still ended up not working, I'd go with GoG.

 

Also, at least it looks like issues and fixes with these games are listed on PCGamingWiki... unlike Soul Reaver. -_-
