News Comments > Get FTL: Faster Than Light for Free

Fuck I hate Epic. For the second time this week, it's logged me out again and I can't get back in. I enter my password correctly but it just does this cycle bullshit and then asks me to enter it once more. Repeat ad nauseam.

If only they spent as much time working on the damn launcher as they do on these freebies.

You might try something like revouninstaller and use it to nuke every folder, registry entry and every bit of leftover detritus after uninstalling.

Giving that a go now. I've done several restarts without success.

Fingers crossed.

Edit: After all that, I don't even know how it worked, but it did. After a combination of reboots and all that, it just... came good. I installed that Revo program but didn't even end up getting a chance to use it.

One of those things.

whatever you do donít try anything more than the mere basics of troubleshooting ... because we are ... the uber entitled ... pc ... master ... race

Such as disabling your firewall and adding commands to the launcher shortcut before running it, that kinda thing? I don't know, maybe google just likes you more than me today, but nothing that's been proposed as a fix worked for me.

I've just left it running now. "Please wait while we start your service". Yeah yeah yeah. Been at least a couple hours now.

It's pretty funny, I just want a new game to play and the survival update to World War Z ticks all the boxes, but I literally... cannot... buy... it.

Epic Games Launcher.

"Please wait while we start your update".

How long? An hour? Two? Ten?

I've had Epic installed for months and went to actually use it this morning but I was logged out - don't you hate how everything bar Steam just can't seem to get that right? (Uplay, I'm looking at you)

So I tried to log back in, verified with the code emailed to me... and it kicks me back out. Did that half a dozen times.

Uninstalled. Reinstalled.

Or at least, trying to. It won't go beyond "Please wait while we start your update".

Forced it down. Uninstalled. Reinstalled. Same thing.

Seems I'm done.

If only World War Z was on Steam. Oh well, your loss guys.

To all the haters, I'm about to have a blast.

I'm not. Survival. Exclusive. PS4. One year.

Yeah, I'm just here for the games too.

I bought MW3 on release day for its survival mode (PC of course), but they can go get fucked with this.

I am just filling up my library with all the free stuff they release every week and not spending any money because the games are cool so why not?


Maybe they aim to stuff your library with so many that the "I want all my games in one place" argument starts to work in their favor.

Yes, except these games are already old and everyone owns them already.

Everyone? I didn't. Any of them. Sorry.

You Epic naysayers are funny. I'm the last person that wanted yet another launcher but let's be honest, this is huge. I don't know what the dollar estimate is on all of these games, but it's gotta be up there.

Anyone play this? Is it like L4D, but with space dwarves?

Steam says I've played 163 hours of it, so... yeah.

Game of the year for me.

News Comments > Satisfactory Early Access

17. Re: removed Mar 20, 2019, 18:47 Ventura
 
This is a great game.

I don't like Epic as much as the next guy, but my wife and I bought Satisfactory the night before release so we'd be ready to play after work the next evening. And play it we did.

I like Steam enough, but at the end of the day, I'll go where the games are, and this exclusive is a huge win for Epic if just because of how darn good it is.

Ouch. Okay, I'm not a AAA kinda guy but not one of my nominations made that list in the appropriate category. Great to see Subnautica get some recognition for best environment but I'm pretty sure I voted that one game of the year, and best VR game I think I went for Vox Machinae.

Maybe next year.

Same for me. Never dared to completely explore the game deep down below.
Cant wait for Below Zero.

Go on mate. There's never been a better time. Go build a base down in the active lava area, just so you can say you've done it.

Subnautica was my 2018 game of the year. There's nothing like that feeling you get when you know there's a reaper close.

So which mod did you work on? Maybe I played it ^_^

It was called VQuest, an Everquest conversion. Even had its own website at one point, forums too (more like a ghost town). Went through a few iterations but boy did I have fun with that one. Because their world editor was so good, near everything could be done through their trigger interface without having to know how to code anything.

Damn, good ole days.

Wouldn't an ideal state be a standalone headset that can also be used wireless with a pc be a goal? For lite-weight stuff the standalone has that, for heavy app's have the pc render it and transmit to the standalone like a Rift works now but wireless. Best of both?

That does sound like a win-win but I just don't see them investing serious money into that kind of versatility.

You think they are going to skip doing a pc headset and just release the Go 2?

Actually, yeah, now that you ask. PC VR doesn't have a chance at being profitable compared to mobile VR (as much as I hate to admit it), and money's the bottom line.

Oh but they've said they're still focused on PC VR? What, like they'd come out and admit it if they weren't?

releasing the Oculus Quest(their new standalone headset) next year. After that, we'll start hearing about the next thing they have for pc vr users.


Exactly how do you know that? Don't get me wrong, I'd love for it to be true, it's just going to take more than that.

I've owned everything from two DK2's to a Vive and a CV1, and am planning on buying a Vive Pro headset for Christmas if funds allow. So yeah, I love VR. I know it's expensive, but I prioritise this stuff (escapism is big for me). I don't make a lot of money but I don't go on holidays and I don't have kids. This is what I do.

The CV1 is every bit as good as the Vive, and to that end I'm gutted Oculus seem to be going the mobile route. Not that I can't understand it, but I wouldn't be surprised if we never do end up seeing a Rift 2 for PC

Deep Rock Galactic is a great game.

If 1-4 person co-op sounds like your cup of tea, you could do a lot worse than to check it out.
