Oh, this one gets worse w/ its business practices and non-sense.

Players found something out, from playing the Beta recently.

Good news - Fallout 3 on Steam gets an update to drop G4WL, which people are happy about:
Destructoid - https://www.destructoid.com/fallout-3-games-for-windows-live-removed-steam-update-sale/

Bad News - Oh, and it also broke saves, FOSE and mods for now too; check the Steam Forums for FO3 for how people aren't happy about that part I just mentioned.

Its weird GOG would allow a game like this. I mean yeah technically I guess you can play it offline but that cuts you off from a lot of stuff. Just seems like a poor fit for GOG specifically.

Hitman 1: GOTY (2016) has hit GOG...and it's not entirely DRM-FREE.

Story Mode (SP campaign) is DRM-FREE and works offline, but a lot of the extras pertaining to it are NOT accessible unless you're actually online.

A lot of the SP-mode extras - i.e. equipment progression/unlocks, disguise unlocks, entrance/exit unlocks, etc - is still locked behind still IOI's own online servers (like the Steam and Epic versions for PC). Meaning, to use this stuff, you need to unlock it from playing the game and then actually be online to use the unlocks.

A lot of the GOG community is not happy about this. This was even a complaint back when this game hit Steam, but...since GOG is supposed to be DRM-FREE, it's gotten even worse.

Also, to sum up:
- Story Mode works offline and DRM-FREE style.
- A lot of the extras for Story Mode (disguises, extra entrances, extra exits, equipment progression, etc etc) need you to be online to utilize these.
- Elusive Targets, Escalation Missions, and User-Created Missions: the player must be online to use these.

See more here in this thread, as GOG fans aren't happy about this:

Supposedly, GOG and IOI are going to look into this matter:

Announcement of new NVidia tech DLAA will be coming to ESO:
https://www.tweaktown.com/news/81696/nvidia-dlaa-yes-not-dlss-will-debut-in-elder-scrolls-online/index.html

Info:
- DLAA (Deep-Learning Anti-Aliasing) is going to be a high-end & supposedly "incredible" new Anti-Aliasing technique coming from NVIDIA.
- This will be able to be used by NVIDIA RTX-based cards.
- Since this has "Deep Learning" in here, I assume it'll be AI-based rendering technique (like DLSS).
- Unlike DLSS, this is not a performance boosting technique.
- ESO can already get really high framerates on RTX-based card & this is an older game (around 7 years now)...
- ...So this is going to be for those who want a really high-quality AA technique in their game.
- This feature should be available soon on the ESO Public Test Server.
