Man, who to trust when reviews vary so wildly?

I'm not sure what reviews you're reading, but most are pretty solidly 8s and 9s, with PCGamer being the outlier.

ACG's review is still locked behind his funding paywall, overall it appears to be another Borderlands game.

Of course it is. Why mess with the best looter-shooter out there? If it had changed radically, people would complain about that.

I buy from everywhere. If the worst happens I'll only be out 1/3rd ish of my library.

LOL! Hadn't thought about that. I have my games spread around as well: Epic, Steam, Origin, Bethesda, GOG, uPlay. If Steam ever went down I'd lose a lot of games, but mostly older games. I suspect some would loose everything.

Nah, I'm good.

Same here, I hate EGS so much, that I haven't grab one of their freebie BS games. Just wont support their shit platform.
+1 and their shit methodology, that's going to damage game development for years to come.

I can't wait for Steam to become a public company. Then you'll finally regret making Steam the unassailable virtual monopoly that it really it currently is.

I could only get one of the freebies because they don't have a shopping cart and it required extra clicks of the mouse.
I keed I keed, I definitely snagged em both.

And yet, even on their freebies, you gotta click each one at a time. TOP CODERS at Epic... TOP. Coders.

Six mouse clicks. Soooooo hard!

God you guys are a bunch of cynical whingers. This gives an artist a) exposure and b) something decent to add to their resume. It's not like it's all one sided. People have a choice, you know? If they want to participate in contributing to the game, let them.

Another competitive store? Yeah that's a good thing for consumers for sure.
A store that pays to remove choices from the consumers? Nah.

Doesn't seem complicated to me.

You mean a store that makes publishers an exclusivity OFFER, of course.

What is removing the choice from consumers is NOT the offer or the payment per se but the greedy as fuck publishers who ACCEPT the offer, fully well knowing that consumer choice will be (time) limited.

It's all semantics to me. There are plenty of games that are "exclusive" to Steam. Sure Valve does not pay for the exclusivity, but by virtue of their sheer dominance of the digital download market, many publishers just don't go anywhere else. There are plenty of games I'd rather buy on GoG or another platform, but you can only get what you want on Steam

And you want to tell me THAT'S good for the market?

I don't give a fuck how unpopular the opinion may be, but I actually agree with him. The only way to break Steam's status-quo is though market disruption. Steam's dominance needs to be broken; people get pissy at Microsoft, Apple and Google but they tolerant and even encourage Steam's virtual monopoly. It boggles my mind sometimes how blinkered gamers can be.

Complaining about a free game you don't have to take. Find some joy, dude.

It's on Epic and whining about anything they do is now a national pastime ... until the kids find something new to hate.

Well ... when it's a Steam Exclusive in all but name, you have no choice but to use Steam, do you?

And they complain about Epic. *sheesh*

Valve/Steam didn't bribe the publisher to make it a Steam exclusive.

People were bitching about Epic well before any of that started happening. Gearbox chose exclusivity. So did Deep Silver. And they became pariahs because they wouldn't suck Gaben's dick. Yet Creative Assembly chooses to go onto Steam only and nobody bats an eyelid.

And don't forget the only reason why Steam started giving refunds was that the Australian government was taking them to court and they thought they could get out of it. Fuck Steam. They had the market on anti-consumer for years before anyone else came on board digital distribution. I'm glad their monopoly is being carved up.


Perhaps you missed the part where MeanJim wrote, rightly so, "Valve didn't bribe the publisher to make it a Steam exclusive." That's why nobody is up in arms about it. If the publishers wants to go exclusive on a particular platform that's their business. But when the platform pays a publisher not to sell their game on a competing platform that's when people get upset.

Perhaps you missed the part where I said that "Gearbox chose exclusivity. So did Deep Silver." In other words, they weren't "bribed" by Epic. And yet everyone so up in arms about Borderlands 3 and Metro: Exodus. And now they are pariahs.

"Your point is invalid".
