$20 on PS4 but $50$ on PC. For a 3+ year old game.
Then go play it on a PS4. Your entitlement to assume that all the time and expense it took the developers to port it over to PC to then sell it on Steam for $20 minus Valve's 30% is foolish. I own it on PS4 but as far as I see it, this is a new game for PC gamers.

Who's stupid idea was it to charge full or near full price for a game that's been available on PC for over a year? Do they seriously think people are going to be okay with this? After a year of release on a platform (PC is the platform), it should be selling for 19.99.
Why? Why not fleece the Steam elitists while they can? I know I would!
That's the cool thing about EGS exclusivity for the devs and publishers: Double dipping galore.
They have a ton of guaranteed sales both from Steam elitists as well as drive-by sales from the 90 million active users/month.
Win-win-win situation for them to go EGS exclusive. Money up front, money from selling on the EGS for a year, even more monies from the Steam/GOG (etc.) release (and also from being able to put it on more key stores).

So you can now pay full price instead of 25% off that Green Man had it last week, and you STILL have to install and create an account for the Rockstar store and loader? The only reason to wait for steam was to avoid that, so it's really a bit pointless. Or am I wrong and it only loads in the background without needing an account?
By using DX12, PC players with high-end GPUs may experience a higher and steadier frame rate. This is because DX12 delivers better CPU performance and allows for the distribution of rendering jobs across multiple cores.

ROFLMAO @ people buying JFO on Steam
The game can be rented for €/$14.99 on Origin and even if you wanted to "own" it (more like permanent rent) then it'd be cheaper to rent it for a month now and just buy it on sale later... or to buy an Origin key from a reputable key site. This is a game that will get discounted very quickly once the Episode IX hype has died down. It will be €/$ 29.99 in March at the latest.
I guess people buying it on Steam just enjoy flushing monies down the shitter. Oh well. To each their own...

Cheating is the biggest problem with PC gaming. Why isn't there a "gaming mode" required by competitive online games that locks your PC (Windows 10 would be fine for this) into a mode that allows only an API-approved list of programs running in the background, basically core Windows programs, plus the game, plus Discord and literately nothing else. How is it possible we've gone this long without some mode like this?
Permabanning these idiots simply isn't enough. They've ruined all competitive games, CSGO, PUBG, Battlefield, Fortnite, Apex, etc. and it's the only real argument for consoles.

Wasn't the main [stated, at least] reason they pulled out back in the day the inability to sell DLC directly, rather than going via Steam and give Valve a cut? Did something change in that regard lately?

It doesn't matter how much Epic is paying it matters if they - devs - would have sold more without the exclusive. Meh, whatevs, 10 mil for a game to sit around for a year while they polish it and sell the 'finished' version everywhere else for cheaper later on? I'm fine with that as Epic seems to be fine with wasting its money.

Be careful what you wish for here, laws like this have a way of turning out bad. For example this could rush in Game Streaming, since the alternative is this law that probably breaks business plans. Laws with good intentions have this happen to them. I don't feel the deal we have currently has been a bad one.

In fact there is a option for bnet to close when the game launches in the options.The Half Elf wrote on Sep 14, 2019, 13:34:Does EGS actually let you kill it while playing? Wish I could do that with every launcher; Ubi's I think lets you close it but keeps some process running, Origin and Blizzard I remember would kill the game, and Steam might be game dependent based on using Steamworks DRM, but since most do I haven't bothered testing, and nor have I tried for Bethesda's.
So to fix Borderlands 3 you need to get rid of Epic Game Store?
GoG's the only (other?) one that just lets me play my damned game...

While I'm not about to go around the internet rating BL3 0/10, I feel like they should incur some kind of backlash for being EGS exclusive. I skimmed a few of the "professional" reviews and none of them even mentioned EGS. They should definitely mention it at the very least.
