And I am over here with Steam that will pre-load CP2077 and VTMB2 without issue. Just like I pre-loaded GTA V, Civ6, MK11 and others. It's calls a platform that is mature and built with forethought vs one rushed out. Marvel vs DCEU all over again.

It's not like Epic needs forethought. All they need to do is copy what Valve did and have preloading standard prior to launching their storefront. It's not rocket science. Just copy the competition.

So now because of EGS incompetence Now I have to wait like 20 minutes for the game to download? WTF?

GOD! I am so sick of Tim Sweeney ignorant bullshit! Sure I don't dont know how to make it work, but I am at least smart enough to know that it's fucking easy.

Will it crash when everyone tries to DL at once? Inquiring minds want to know.

Probably not, last time I checked I am pretty much the only one willing to buy EGS exclusives. .
It boggles the mind how they are staying afloat with you being the only person buying things from them.

You could help. Epic would love for you to switch from being a freebie junkie to a paying customer. Apologies if you've already made the switch.

Bah, I was hoping it was about tires.

Not sure how you thought it was about tires when the words ""Bourne" Spin-Off Series" is clearly visible in the title.

So you're saying it should be called Bridgestone? What about Firestone?

(Kxmode your joke filter is broken)

It wasn't a funny joke.

It was a tongue-in-cheek comparison between how Epic handles its online store and game. Both demonstrate Epic's ineptitude and stupid behavior. If people complain about the unfair mechanics in Fortnite, people respond with "you have a point! that's not fair." But a complaint about the unfairness of EGS exclusive is seen as being entitled and a crybaby.

WOW Classic pre-launch stress test is currently underway. The test started today at 11 AM PST and continues until Friday. More information in this announcement. The test is open to anyone with an active WOW sub.

On a personal note seeing the version say 1.13.X is AWESOME! For a long time it used to say 1.12.

Do you support doxing and swatting with the same fervor. What about review bombing.

This is your response to my apology and asking you to tone down the trollish behavior. Are you incapable of a modicum of normalcy?

Please god, can someone give me one good argument in favour of the 30%? I'm so tired of saying the same shit over and over and over. Just put me out of my misery, give me the coup de grace and show me why I'm wrong. That or we can consider this settled and move to other more interesting topics.

Slick wrote on Aug 7, 2019, 20:43:
And for anyone who still doesn't understand what 30% of gross means:

A game costs $10

Valve's 30% gets them $3

Their costs are about $0.02

Total net profit for Valve $2.98

Publisher's 70% gets them $7

Their costs are to: pay the programmers, pay the level designers, pay the concept artists, pay the texture artists, pay the modelers, pay the sound designers, pay marketing, pay for servers, pay for QA, pay for customer service, pay for the office space, pay for engine licencing, pay music royalties, etc. etc. etc So how much do you think is left? If they're lucky they have $3 profit at the end.

Why should Valve get the same cut for essentially just hosting a server with zero human input required, as all the people collectively who actually work to make the games that we love?

Because Valve has an army of people working on Steam and their work doesn't come cheap.

Steam is equal parts platform, community hub, live streaming, sales, and marketing tool; rolled up into a single package. A publisher pays Valve a 30% premium to get access to everything Steam provides beyond the development of their game. Of all the platforms on the market, Steam is the most feature-rich and complete. Do you suppose that kind of tool and service should be dirt cheap?

Game developers miss release dates all the time but now you have to get approval from mother valve.
I think it makes more sense to cough up an extra point if you want high vis shelf space.
Does anyone know how long you can squat on the Coming Soon throne - 2 weeks, 1 month .. Or more??

About a year with EGS exclusivity.

It's probably also to stop douchey dev/pubs from taking advantage of getting publicity on Steam, then pulling the game making it an Epic exclusive.
