By promising the game would allow players to play locations from Hitman 2, IOI can fix the problem by releasing the game on Steam. So that's my thoughts about IOI.

As far as Epic is concerned:

Re: "It's never Epic's intent to create a situation where someone who owns a game on Steam would have to buy it again on Epic Games Store."

This comes from the same company that contacted the Darq developer days after releasing the trailer announcing the Steam release and then telling the dev they wouldn't allow simship for his game even though they granted simship status to other publishers. This is the same company that got Deep Silver to yank Metro Exodus two weeks before launch, even though it had a lengthy preorder cycle. This is the same company that took crowdfunded titles that promised Steam keys (Phoenix Point and Shenmue 3). This is the same company that's advocating for fairness and yet takes away choice. This is the same company who's store still doesn't have a shopping cart or standard social features. No Epic, you don't get to take the high road here. You knew what you were doing. Wherever you go, chaos follows. Apple's pummeling you in court cannot come fast enough. Their case against Apple is weak, and they will suffer a financial black hole that even their Fortnite funds won't be able to help them get out of.

The Crypto market is driven by a healthy mixture of FUD and hype. A drop in either or both will cause a cascading meltdown. Effectively a scenario where FUD will creep into the crypto market itself producing a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Current crypto market prices are driven by Tether (s) .. google it.. the biggest fraud of the century. Actually mindblowing and I hope nobody on here holds any bitcoins leveraged as tether

And tethers are setup by people and groups' FUD and hype, captivated by crypto's promise. All that glitters isn't gold when the blockchain begins to collapse, and it will.

Maybe but it will level the playing field. Apple and google do scalp huge amounts, disproportionately so.

So did Valve until Epic went off and created their game store. Other than one game sold for $50 instead of $60, most games are priced for the full $60 even after the publisher gets a more significant cut. Any court decision won't serve the public interest. The only one who benefits is Epic. Epic is only building a raid party to serve its purpose. As the saying goes, "the road to hell is paved with good intentions."

Whilst i see the urony of epic stores vs apple store, i do think epic winning vs apple will help developers in the long run.

Tim doesn't care about this little guy. He wants to create a proprietary draconian walled garden inside Apple's draconian walled garden. He wants all the power and reach of Apple's platform without paying the B2B cost. It's like someone wanting to sell their goods at the most famous flea market around but complains that the flea market is charging too much.

I don't understand their issue with Google. You can bypass Google Play via side loading.
Maybe Epic should spend some money educating users how to do so instead of wasting money on that Nineteen Eighty-Fortnite propaganda.


It's just that the vast majority of phone users aren't technical or savvy. Convenience trumps all. It's like if Google was the only place from which you could buy a house west of the Mississippi and you said, "I don't see the problem, people an just build their own home!"

Actually, the vast majority of people aren't technical or savvy. Remember the flashing 12:00 on new VCRs?

And people wonder why PC gamers hate EGS.

The lawsuit with Apple cannot come fast enough. And I hope when it is done, and it will be done, Apple will give Epic permission to die. (Apple's 2T vs Epic's 3.5B)

This better not cut into the freebies.

Oh, it will. Dwindling income from Fortnite. Fortnite moving to a sub model. Legal fights in multiple countries. Epic is going drop freebies before they drop exclusivity. There's no ROI on freebies compared to the ROI on exclusivity.

Huffpost warning to anyone who dislikes objective news, but I haven't seen these stunning pictures of our troops anywhere else.

Striking Photos Show Hundreds Of National Guard Troops Sleeping Inside U.S. Capitol
The last time troops slept there was 1861.
Looks like the amenities haven't changed much and they still don't have turn down service.

I heard they put a state-of-the-art gate around the entire parameter (it can't be pushed down or knocked over) and have thousands outside. They used military vehicles to block off streets. I think the only thing they're missing is a moat and a dragon.
