I heard the Kurt Russell film Soldier takes place in the same universe and time period as Blade Runner.

It does while Blade Runner also exists in the same universe as Alien. Which, when looking back, makes you wonder why the Colonial Marines weren't made up of the super soldiers from Soldier.

They could go the Avengers route and create a film with all three IPs.
Don't forget that the Predators exist in the same universe too!

Aliens vs Predators vs Soldiers vs Replicants. I want to see this film now! Smash

They can afford to keep the lights on all night. Can't say the same for Epic, if the current Fortnite trend continues.
Thank you, exactly the point I was trying to make in the other thread.

It's still a moot point. What makes you think that Epic's life depends on Fortnite?

[rest snipped as irrelevant]

Simple.

Before Fortnite's success, Epic took in about a billion or so annually from engine licensing fees. During that entire time, Epic never had a store beyond a launcher created for Paragon in 2016. Neither Paragon nor the Unreal engine was enough to start a store. However, once they reached a combined three billion in annual income from engines fees and Fortnite, then they did it. After Fortnite's success, and shutting down Paragon in April 2018, did they repurpose the Paragon launcher into a barebones storefront and rush it out the door as a non-minimum viable product. As Toad Howard puts it, "It's not how you launch, it's what it becomes" that matters...

In other words, Epic only got into the platform business after Fortnite's success infused Epic with an additional two billion.

Those are the facts. They tell you everything you need to know.

Epic is not the Steam killer and never will be. As an established brand, the only company who'll dethrone Valve is Valve themselves.

Speaking of clouds, this sums up EGS perfectly, which is interesting when you consider the company's name in the commercial.

My plan was to pick this up soon after release (barring a DOA game). I think my biggest concern buying from EGS is, will they be in operation in 5 years when I want to replay my game? I don't have this concern with Steam, EA, or GoG for various reasons.

That seems like a rather strange concern. Epic have been around since 1991. Their engine has arguably been the most used and most successful one in AAA development for nearly two decades now. The licensing is their bread & butter business that would easily keep them alive even if Fortnite collapsed over night (which it won't).

Out of the ones you mentioned, GOG is the much riskier gig. If CDPR produce a flop or two then GOG is toast or at least up for sale to the highest bidder.

You don't see EGS as a flop? That's rich like a meal featuring Coq Au Vin along with a side of Croque Madame, served with hot Jambon-Beurre and bookended by a slice of Cherry Clafoutis from a fancy French restaurant. Beatnik

7. Re: Out of the Blue Jul 25, 2019, 16:52 Kxmode
 
Publishers are experimenting more with steep discounts. As the free-to-play business model continues to take mindshare in the industry, publishers seem more open to significantly lowering unit prices for catalogue AAA franchises in order to expand the player base. EA’s Sims 4 and Take-Two’s NBA2K19, two franchises that benefit immensely from add-on content purchases, both saw huge spikes in unit sales after prices were brought down below $5.

Sigh. People are not getting the memo about microtransactions. They complain about them and yet the above shows why publishers continue to put it in their games.

I would assume most of it has to do with the games themselves since many of the top-ranking tend to be highly competitive (LOL, Fortnite, TFT, DOTA 2, PUBG, CS:GO, Overwatch, and so forth). You combine that with the relative anonymity the Internet provides, and that's a recipe for extremely toxic behavior.

It's getting painful watching the 20th century blink out of existence, with the passing of each pop culture icon. I think I always expected there to be new icons...new heroes...but it doesn't seem like anyone is stepping up. I haven't been excited about any movies in I don't know how long. I'm tired of superhero flicks. Today's music sucks. I guess I'm just getting old. My 6 year old was listening to some song named Old Town Road the other day, and I was like WTF is this garbage. /endrant

I am willing to give modern stuff a try. For example, check out Aurora. Incredibly talented musician.

Not every soldier was a Nazi, but every Nazi was German. Worth remembering.

Not ever German was a Nazi, but every Nazi was evil. Plenty of non-Germans were Nazis.

That's the implied meaning (apologies for the misplaced semantics). Plenty of German soldiers did their service and had no idea of the evils of the SS and other higher-ranking members of Hitler's inner circle. Pretty sure many were as appalled by the atrocities their countrymen had wrought. That led to Germany banning anything related to Hitler for the last 70 or so years. Only recently has the government allowed the symbolism to appear in video games as long as the message presents the movement in a very negative light.

There's a great movie starring Viggo Mortensen called Good that shows how a people can slowly become evil without even realizing it. Highly recommend watching if you haven't seen.
