Epic is so fucking desperate to get people in their platform that its actually pretty pathetic. Its like some drug dealer standing on a corner offering free drugs until they get you hooked, then its addiction.

Sorry, I don't do drugs, never have never will.

You know redEye, your as confusing as you always are. Steam is not a monopoly, they are who they were in the beginning they were the ONLY ones offering games on a platform that most everyone loves. So your comments like this are so fucking baffling.

I see a few games I wouldn't mind buying, and I don't care about the fact they have exclusives, but I'm more concerned about reports they send data about your programs/files back to Epic without permission. However, I can't tell if this is just the sour grapes people making up crap and this is a normal procedure for software like this, or if it's really something to be concerned about. The nonsense about "Chinese ties" sounds like conspiracy crap.

Not conspiracy when tencent owns almost half the company.

I'm confused. Blue's lead says they are promising sales up to 75% off and at least $10 on games priced over $14.99. So Epic themselves are applying a $10 discount to all games above a certain price on their own dime, and then publishers can offer their own sales as well. So if a game was $80, the publisher offers a 50% discount dropping it to $40, then Epic applies their $10 discount, the $80 game is now $30.

I don't know, I haven't tried to check out any titles (thru to cart). The $10 discount won't apply to a lot of games though and the publishers aren't exactly going nuts to discount recent AAA releases. Metro: Exodus was the only notable one I saw personally. I guess Borderlands 3 preorder is good? I don't know, I try not to preorder games anymore. If you find others please post them. Their store is fucking awful to browse by the way, holy shit.

This is why I have exclusively excluded myself from buying anything from that shit show of a store front.

Verno, Rage 2 how are you liking that game? Its an OK game and all, but it really feels lacking in areas and Coop would have benefited this game a lot.

It's hard to argue with publishers shunning Steam when it leads to crazy numbers like this.

They sold ten times as many copies of Division 2 on Uplay as they did Division 1. That's a lot of money left in their own pocket, and the PC was the only platform in the past year that (substantially) increased its share for Ubisoft.

God, who knows, maybe someday we'll get genuine PC versions again, instead of console po... hahahahahaha I can't even finish that sentence.

I think you missed the point that most of the sales originally came from Steam with D1. When they shunned Steam and went Exclusive to Epic and their own portal. Then its not hard to see the increased sales. Most shied away from Epic in favor of UBIs portal.

You'd think that guy would be shamed enough already.
Would it be bad of me to hope someone with measles attends the rally?

No kidding!!

Why cant people like this be the ones who catch these diseases and die so we can be rid of idiots like this in the world? If only that would happen!!!

Started the account deletion process over the weekend for EGS. Finished today. What a shit show.

I don't really love or hate it but all of this nonsense seems like a really desperate and cheap attempt to insert itself into the marketplace without doing any real work to get there. Walled gardens suck, they sucked on consoles and attempting to do it here will have even shittier results. The client itself is a bizarre lack of effort from such a large company and development is proceeding at a snails pace. Competition is good for everyone...when there is actual competition. This sort of nonsense does not translate into lower prices for consumers, just more uptake for publishers.

Also have to LOL at Tim Sweeney trying to position himself as the good guy in this scenario. The same guy who said the industry was doomed because of piracy and refused to release his studios own games on the platform. Sure Tim, you're our savior whatever would we do without your forced exclusivity Dunce

Hey, its Verno. Haven't seen you posting in a while dude. How ya been? And I agree with your comment. Spot on!

Hrm, I'll probably wait a bit. I liked Spellforce 3, but it was easily one of the buggiest games I've played in recent memory, on release day. To be fair it did get patched up quite a bit; hopefully Soul Harvest comes out a little more polished.

Thats an understatement, there was a patch per day, I think I even saw at least once or twice they put on out two per-day. This was ongoing for at least a month until they finally stabilized the game. But it was a fun game. Fun Coop too.

Ugggg EPIC sucks because it doesn't offer all the features I don't use on steam anyways.

Well, you are a small part of that majority that doesn't, but there are many who do. The point is at least its there to be used when needed. Good luck getting that from Epic!

So, your applauding and praising Epic for its anti-consumer tactics? If so, you got some serious issues.

Thanks for fixing that posting Cutter.

Been watching a bit of this on Twitch and REALLY underwhelmed.

It's on my list to pick up.... in 3 or 4 months but there is nothing compelling about the game. Oh and people were streaming the entire story in 9 hours.

for an open world game thats pretty underwhelming.

At least when UBI makes an ope world game your in it for the long haul. 40 hours min.

The story of the Ubi games can be done in 9 hours, too. And that is what HElf was saying about Rage 2.

I've watched a couple of movies and the gameplay looked like great fun - don't know about the story, though, because I don't watch story vids - don't want to get spoilt. And it seems to have A LOT more contents than e.g. Anthem.

That may be, if you push your way though the game. but there are so many side quest that can be done, that you will be busy for a ton of hours.

Unlike Rage 2 where I've heard that theirs not a whole lot of side stuff to do, that these things are coming in the DLC which is sad that anyone has to buy DLC to get the full game they should have gotten on day one.

Creston wrote on May 14, 2019, 15:03:
The gamesradar review (linked yesterday) was pretty down on it, saying the open world is devoid of anything to do. They ended with this:

The “Rage 2 roadmap” has already been revealed, showcasing world events and “wasteland challenges” in an effort to follow in the footsteps of successful games like Destiny 2 and The Division 2, but the difference is that this is a single player game. Anyone who purchases this game on launch is undoubtedly expecting a full release, rather than a relatively empty world that will be later populated with content under the guise of the 'Games as a Service' industry trend. There is no reason for so much content to be time-gated. Were everything that is planned to arrive in the coming months, there's a chance that Rage 2 could have felt like a more complete package at launch – a game that has content to complement its excellent weapons and core action. Sadly, that isn't the case and the result is a sequel hasn’t impressed me all that much at all, but it won’t be laid to rest until the roadmap comes to a close for a game many people will have grown bored of.

Ruh-roh. I'll wait for a complete edition down the road somewhere.

Honestly, is anyone really all that surprised at this? Bethesda pulled some pretty shady shit with everyone on the DRM at the last min along with the linked account that is forced in place. Along with Deluxe edition of the game only giving access to the BFG that can not be archived any other way in the game at all.

Bethesda's has reached all new lows with their shady business tactics as of late. I actually refunded the game days before when I found out about the BFG not being in the game. I felt screw Bethesda if they want to treat us like some two bit customers.

So, Ill wait this one out and see it on the deep sale in a year or so.

This is one of my favorite games but I think it should be free to owners of the original like what was done with the Bioshock remasters. And watching comparison videos really make this look like a cashgrab.

Anyone who owns the game can buy it for 10 dollars. Thats really not a lot if you think about what you are getting and the new work thats put into the game.
