The GoGMix, recommenfdations from experienced users for new users.
Closing the chat, the guys from GoG stated that they had ‘technical issues’ with the site which is why they shut it down over the weekend. Of course we know this was a marketing stunt which has worked rather well creating a real buzz about the site and brand.
Perhaps the GoG team didn’t exactly handle the shutting down particularly well, but at least now fans and customers of the site know its future is safe.
