GOG.com have long been one of my favourite sources for classic games and for good reason, as a gamer I feel like they've quite often "got my back", now they've done it again as they shift 90% of their content to support Windows 8, great news for all you classic game loves that were worried about any compatibility issues.

GOG already specialize in making older games run on newer hardware, so it makes sense that they should be able to transfer support for most of their content so quickly. 90% of GOG.com catalog, that's more than 430 title are available, DRM-free, for Windows 8.

"The majority of games that we support for Windows 7 work on Microsoft's new OS already," said Guillaume Rambourg, managing director of GOG.com, "but we've also put hard work into updating many of the titles that may be harder to get running under the new Windows as well. The result of re-testing and updating our entire catalog is evident now with our official support of Windows 8. Gamers who are looking for a great opportunity to pick up the best games in history on their new OS will surely find something for them in the newly-updated GOG.com catalog."

GOG.com will also be updating their catalog to allow users who want to search for games which are localized into languages other than English. Starting on 29 November 2012, the catalog will have more than a dozen different languages that users can filter by, including German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Czech, and Turkish.
