Three more games from Bethesda are now available on GOG in their glorious DRM-free, GOTY editions. To promote the latest additions, GOG is offering a 50 percent discount on these titles, just in case you don't already own all three.

Bethesda's Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion have recently joined Morrowind, the first two Fallout titles and some other games from the company's catalogue over on gog.com. All three games have arrived DRM-free and in their Game of the Year editions.

First of all, DRM-free means that the game is without digital rights management which, in turn, allows it to reach its full potential. And by that we mean sharing, copying, etc. The Game of the Year edition bit means that you'll be getting all add-ons and DLC packs associated with a game you purchase.

Lastly, if you act before 06 June, you can grab all three games at a 50 percent discount. The offer also includes Fallout 2, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and Fallout Tactics among many others.

If you were hoping to see Fallout 4 and Skyrim on the list, I will have to ask you not to hold your breath, as those still rake in adequate piles of cash. Fallout 4 did however host a free weekend on Xbox and Steam recently.

With the most recent move to GOG in mind, we have to ask what it means for Fallout 3, New Vegas and ES IV:Oblivion. Is Bethesda going to stop supporting these titles in favour of Fallout 4 and Prey, or will a small team in charge of maintenance remain tasked with the upkeep.

And what is the deal with the Bethesda Launcher? Redditors seem not so pleased with the software.

Shortly after that, the debate turned to Blizzard/Steam launcher comparisons:
