  • GOG Galaxy Leaves Beta with Massive Update

    For a quick reminder, GOG Galaxy is an optional client allows consumers to easily download their DRM-free games, create backups of those games, allow consumers to roll back to previous game updates, and it supports cross-platform play. And now, let's look at the 1.2 update for GOG Galaxy.
