I just noticed on my favourite game patches site ‘patches-scrolls.de’, that the Direct2Drive 1.37 patch for GSB has appeared.
If all the GSB patches were routinely pushed out to various gaming sites, then visitors will see a new patch for this game they have never heard of called ‘Gratuitous Space Battles’.
“Hmm… GSB V1.38, what’s this? I remember a patch came out for that game a few days ago… I wonder what it is…”
