Considering how awful their last game was, this annoys me significantly less than it would normally have.

Hate, racism and ignorance became the face of the Republican party the minute Trump was elected to office and almost no existing republicans called him out. They almost unanimously toed the party line for four years. This is obvious because a) they almost all voted to overturn the election for no reason other than because Trump said to and b) the senate is almost assuredly not going to convict Trump for inciting insurrection. Which he PAINFULLY, obviously, did do.

lol, that's not a perk. if the government wanted to be assholes they could hit you with tax evasion unless you claim this purchase on your taxes.

unless you live in a state without it...

Just like they hit the millions of people who purchased from Amazon before they started charging tax?

Well I broke down and got Nioh 2... on GMG. Another nice perk from using them is there is no sales tax.

Obviously this being a PC gaming forum we are not interested in the semantics of exclusivity beyond the PC. And for the record, consoles do have a bunch of the features Steam has... they just make users pay monthly for them.

There is another lawsute to break the steam pricing model. Where discounts cannot be given on other platforms.

Which, like I said at the time of the lawsuit, is flat-out horseshit, as ON THE SAME DAY OF THE LAWSUIT a new release game (Hitman 3) was cheaper on GreenManGaming than on Steam itself.

Steam policy says the LIST PRICE of a game must be consistent across platforms.

It has seemed kind of ludicrous to me that a webhosting company (Steam) would claim 30% of all revenue a game produces.

Have you ever noticed that web-hosting companies are enormous? Because it takes an enormous amount of resources to service basically the entire internet-connected world with the kind of speed Steam offers. Why do you think AWS is so large? If you want a developer to have 100% of the profits from their product, the developer can 100% deliver the game to you.

Only a fool would think Epic has any interest at all in leveling the playing field. They're only able to do this because they got incredibly lucky with fortnite and are simply looking to secure a revenue stream for when fortnite eventually stops making money.

I'm actually very curious as to why exactly somebody has got to do it? Is what Steam is doing bad for the gaming ecosystem as a whole? Who does it disadvantage? As far as I can see they have done more for gaming in the past decade or so than all the big publishers combined.

Because they charge a lot to developers to get games on Steam, which affects me, a Steam user, precisely... not at all. Steam is far and away the biggest market, and offers a lot of functionality to both users and sellers alike. And if I don't like the price of a game on Steam, I am almost always free to buy the game somewhere else... and still use Steam to deliver/maintain it.

Meanwhile Epic thinks they are doing us a favor (or have somehow convinced masses of idiots as much) by buying up games I would otherwise have interest in and locking them solely behind their own walls. I don't need a company telling me some other company is bad for me and then trying to lure me over to their side with free shit like some corner drug dealer.

Dude the vegetable base basically melts into the sauce. And nobody is stopping you adding garlic (I would never make a pasta sauce without garlic in it). I don't eat meat anymore but if I did I'd make bolognese (with braised pork, most likely) often.

Brussels sprouts are far from unpleasant. I like a nice roasted Brussels sprout salad with pecans, cranberries and parmesan, tossed in balsamic. It's good shit, and super easy.

Random grammar comment -- I just read this sentence in a NYT article:

"A person close to Mr. xxxx disputed that that was the case but acknowledged that there were differences in opinion about the defense strategy."
Grammerly found nothing wrong with that sentence.
All suggestions
Correctness
Looking good
Clarity
Very clear
I do agree that that that doesn’t feel right.

Beamer has a magical guide of current accepted grammar. It would be interesting to know what it said.

Can you always replace “that that” with “which that”?

I agree it doesn't seem right, but "which that" doesn't work for me at all either. I would replace "that that" with "that this."


OOO grammar! That this was the case doesn't work because you are mixing tenses. That that is grammatically correct because the thats in question are functioning as different versions of the word. The first one functions as a conjunction, while the second functions as a pronoun.

All that being said, English is a really stupid language chock full of confounding and conflicting ideas and rules.

What stops somebody from listing their game at Steam's price and just... setting it "on sale" indefinitely? Greenmangaming ALWAYS has new release titles CHEAPER than Steam.

The Medium: $45 on Steam. $38 on GMG.

Seems like a non issue.
