This is great news!

... But I probably don't need to buy it a third (or fourth?) time. :P
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

Likewise, it's a good deal, but I already have copies of the game (bought from Steam, no less), and don't know anyone who doesn't already too.

I also noticed Overload appeared to be on sale too.

I've been examining the GOG version of D3 lately, I never actually noticed until recently that it's actually a modified executable and hog data with a few tweaks. It seems unlikely GOG themselves threw it together, I assume someone at the Interplay or Outrage side did that back in 2008 or whatever it was - which makes me wonder why they never bothered to make some simple improvements to compatibility and future proof the game a little bit.

I have multiple copies as well, but holidays are coming and Steam allows you to gift purchases.
There are times you strive for greatness, to reach lofty goals and accomplish
noble deeds. Then there’s the rest of the times you just want to blow s--- up.
