I know I would...
But at the same time I know lots of people would be affected so i don't mind reading an article about a company I never heard about before. After all, it's the information/event that is interesting, not who the information/event is about.

That attitude is a result of media infecting people every time there's a tragedy. They fill your (as in collective "you") head with stories of self-sacrifice and "everybody helps everybody else" so much that people become entitled and start demanding this all the time.

While companies volunteering to help and accepting temporary reduction or removal of profit in these cases is nice, it's not mandated or compulsory and shouldn't be treated as such. In this case, it's simply a matter of people who could have disabled the algorithm being away because, you know, weekend. There was nothing nefarious. It's just brainwashed self-entitled people not getting what they expected.

I pre-order when I want to support the developer, giving them a sense of security knowing that some income is secured. However, in order for me to pre-order, I need to be impressed by the game. After looking at IGN gameplay, I was lured into believing the game had way more to offer than it actually did at release.

As for choosing GOG over Steam, it was simply because the GOG e-mail notification came before the Steam one, so by the time Steam sent m,e the notification, I had already bought the game on GOG.
