That all very interesting. It's probably good BFG closed their CCC forum since it's probable there will be many not happy with the changes. But businesses have to make decisions that keep them viable.

Thanks, BrownEyedTigre smile

Hopefully, despite all the restructuring etc, BigFish won't move away from the "Games for PC" market.

The recent layoffs and forum have me wondering how Big Fish is doing. You haven't been able to order a CD copy of purchased games for a while now, so I'm wondering if anyone has figured out a way to maintain backups of their games another way. I've purchased hundreds in the games in the last few years, and I know there are others who purchase a lot more than me. I would be more than a little ticked off if I were to lose access to those games for whatever reason. My computer certainly doesn't have to the capacity for me to store all the games on my hard drive.

There is no reason to be worried about BigFish. They are a very proactive company as opposed to reactive which will ensure their continued success.

Most companies end up going under because they wait until they are doing poorly before adjusting how they do business and then it's generally too late. BigFish continually accesses what works and what doesn't before it can sink them.

I would not worry about the games you purchased.

Yes, what Ana said. I'm not worried about a company like Big Fish. However, there are ways to backup your games. I believe there is a subject on that down in the Glitches forum. You might try doing a search there.

Even though I understand the steps taken, I still resent having a gag put over my mouth. Communicating with other members was not only helpful, but fun.

There are hundreds of choices on the web to chit chat and form groups which many of them did. They are not a social media outlet, they are a gaming portal and for every one poster that kept things lite and for fun, there were ten that were using it as a soapbox to bite the hand that feeds them. I was surprised it was kept running as long as it was.

BigFish continues to offer the best games, deals and customer service and that is and should be their main focus.

Why would you need back up copies of the games you buy when you can just redownload them from Big Fish? You just click on "My Account" then "Purchase History".

You can't re-download games from a company that goes under. That was what gmm80 was concerned about.

This also applies to anything that's purchased but not in the purchaser's hand.

I think our FB like button (bottom of frame) is for the whole thread. I haven't tested it though.
