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.
That'd be a bit like giving a Chic-fil-A sandwich a bad rating because the chain's owner is apparently a hardcore christian. If I want a review on a product I want the review on the product, without bias because of something potentially problematic someone related to it may have done. Mentioning, sure I guess, but for what's supposed to be a "score" of a thing's quality, no.

Besides, think of what will happen if that's considered normal; you'll get garbage reviewed highly because the creator's a swell lad that saved a kitten from a tree. Also known as AssCreed Unity reverse-review bombing...

Going exclusive on a POS platform affects a review as much as the game itself. If people are butthurt over that fact then they don't understand basic psychology and human behavior.

Why? No one mentions it explicitly when a game is only available on Steam either. Why should EGS be any different?
It's the age of not rating a product but review bomb because of muh feelz.

You're a special breed of fanboi.

Star Trek Deepfake Improves Nemesis By Replacing Tom Hardy With Patrick Stewart - "In one pivotal Nemesis scene, Hardy's Shinzon finally met his clone "father" Picard and revealed the connection between them. Now thanks to Deepfake technology, the meeting between Shinzon and Picard becomes much eerier - and arguably more effective - as Hardy is replaced with Picard actor Stewart, allowing Stewart to confront a clone of himself that actually looks just like himself."

Deepfake is an amazing, and frightening, piece of technology.

this game sure did take a nosedive in terms of hearing about it everywhere I went for PC gaming info.

the hackers killed it for me early on, and the imbalanced characters.

The nosedive is entirely the fault of EA once they realized how wildly successful it became. They couldn't just leave it alone. No, they had to monetize and microtransaction it to hell. Well, EA gets to see first-hand what happens when their corporate greed destroys an otherwise fantastic game.

Epic is a savior for lots independent developers.

They didn't give other platforms a chance. Instead most opt for Epic's quick break-even cash offering with zero trust in their product to sell well.

Fun fact, Valve implemented lootboxes in TF2 almost 1 1/2 year before EA introduced their version to the FIFA franchise.

Yet Valve sees almost no derision for doing that, while everyone else using lootboxes get piles of (deserved) hate piled on them.

Because *hats* are nothing like the straight-up casino gambling found in FIFA titles. It's not even remotely close to the same.

I'd argue that what CS:Go had, though, was ridiculous. I haven't really played many games with loot boxes, probably just CS:Go and Borderlands 2 (if that even counts), but what CS:Go had was infuriating. Win a box, but have to buy a key? A marketplace around selling what you get, with you virtually guaranteed to turn a dollar into 17 cents?

A huge turnoff in that game.

I agree that the Marketplace is a form of gambling that needs regulating. It's a reverse of gambling in the sense that people play to obtain items to be sold on the Marketplace for dozens, hundreds, or in rare cases, thousands of real-world dollars.

Speaking of World Suicide Prevention day, Megachurch pastor who was known for his work in mental health advocacy kills himself.
There are professional mental health care people, cult leaders don't fall in that category.

Mental Health Care professionals can suffer from mental health issues just like everyone else. Working in the profession doesn't protect them from the disease, nor does it diminish others who do what they can to help.

jdreyer, you'll be happy to note the 1080 Ti performs very well when compared to the newer generation Geforce 2070 and Radeon RX 5700 XT cards.

Gears 5 - "The GTX 1080 Ti dominated the 2070 Super and 5700 XT, both newer GPUs averaged 76 fps at 1440p while the Pascal GPU pushed on to average 88 fps. The 1080 Ti was also 14% faster than the 2070 Super at 4K and 25% faster than the 5700 XT."

War Thunder - "here the 1080 Ti edged out the 2070 Super by a 13% margin at 1440p, though both delivered similar 1% low performance. The 1080 Ti also blew away the 5700 XT by a 34% margin and we see a similar thing at 4K, despite similar 1% low performance."

World of Tanks - "plays very well on the GTX 1080 Ti, here the Pascal GPU was 15% faster than the 2070 Super and 24% faster than the 5700 XT. That's a solid result for the older 1080 Ti, though frame rates were high with all GPUs at 1440p using maxed out settings. The 4K result was more impressive, 94 fps on average from the 1080 Ti enabled an extremely smooth gaming experience."

The Division 2 - "the 1080 Ti for example was 13% faster than the 5700 XT at 1440p and 15% faster at 4K. The 1080 Ti also edged out the 2070 Super at 1440p, but matched it at the 4K resolution."

Fornite - "In Fortnite we see the 1080 Ti outclassing both the 2070 Super and 5700 XT at both 1440p and 4K. At the 4K resolution it was 14% faster than the 2070 Super, so a pretty handy win here."

PUBG - "PUBG uses the Unreal Engine 4 and so we see the 1080 Ti easily beating the 5700 XT, though this time it wasn't much faster than the 2070 Super."

F1 2019 - "Performance in F1 2019 was virtually identical across these three GPUs with average frame rates ranging from 112 - 114 fps. The results at 4K were also very competitive, the GTX 1080 Ti matched the 5700 XT exactly."

Wolfenstein: Youngblood - "The 1080 Ti was 10% slower than the 2070 Super and when talking over 140 fps on average, that's not a big deal. The 1080 Ti was comparable to the 5700 XT at both 1440p and 4K."

Apex Legends - "The GTX 1080 Ti did beat the 5700 XT by a small margin while it wasn't much slower than the newer RTX 2070 Super. Then at 4K the GeForce GPUs delivered basically identical performance while the 5700 XT fell away by around a 12% margin."

Monster Hunter: World - "Here we see very competitive performance at both tested resolutions, the 1080 Ti was a smidgen faster than the 2070 Super and 5700 XT, but overall the gaming experience was much the same."

...and so forth.
