I read they need to hit 10k total, last I checked it was 11k. So who knows if that number was correct.

well Serious Sams still the same brain dead hold down the fire button fun it used to be but having to use GOG Galaxy now is a pain, I dont mind the launcher going on C as thats not I'm used to launchers going there but when I tell it to put the game on anlother drive with other games got through GOG & it ignores it & puts it on the c drive anyway thats a little annoying

That's definitely annoying :grumpy: I do appreciate that GOG Galaxy 2.0 shows me all my games across all these other services I have to use now.
