This is kinda awkward, but GOG's winter sale has started

Ummmm, yeahhhhhhh... If you haven't sworn off using GOG, there's some shekels to be saved in its winter sale. Something tells me CD Projekt will see lower conversion and revenue than usual with this sales event. I have a feeling that listin...
