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

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.

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.

That trailer was awful. Looks like Witcher: The Snowflake Chronicles. Knew they were going to trash it.

Clueless comment is clueless.
Brokilon dryads using spears, instead of bows. And Triss not looking young, chestnut haired, and looking like she got beat with an ugly stick, and Yenn looking like she either a 25 year old trying to be 35, or 35 looking to be 25 is obviously clueless. Did I mention the black ones armor yet? No? Sit back and enjoy the shit show.

They're really not even trying to stick to the books. Some parts of it look good, I agree. Other parts are like they decided to break out the stupid because Sapkowski is still pissed off that the witcher games were far more popular than the books, and he only took a lumpsum payment - despite CDPR offering him more when the W3 became an overwhelming success.

Those kinds of details don't make or break a show for me and especially not before watching the first episode. Unlike Watchmen, which I know is not based on the source material, The Witcher is based on the books. So for me the casting choices are irrelevant. Besides none of us were there to see their auditions so we cannot know how they'll be on camera until we see the first episode.

The Watchmen doesn't take its source material from the comic books. As the description puts it: "this drama series embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name while attempting to break new ground of its own." In other words, this show is season 8 of Game of Thrones. We all know how well the show writers did without the source material. I'm now not interested. I'll switch my HBO sub over to Netflix for The Witcher. It will be based on the source material by Andrzej Sapkowski, who is a excellent storyteller and gifted writer.

I think the show is Andrzej Sapkowski's big F-U to CDPR for not getting any of that entitlement money he wanted. The show won't be an adaption of the video game out of spite. That said the three games follow the books, so there's going to be a LOT of familiar things between the show and games.
