Saints Row 3 was actually the meh'est of 1-4 (I thought 4 was phenomenal. 2 was fun since I had already played all the GTA's at the time but still wanted something more.)
Whereas most of the time it's the best of the series that gets remastered, maybe they decided to pull a psychological trick and remaster the worst. I mean...it actually kinda makes sense.

The thing about the Civ games since Civ 4 is that every expansion has really changed and improved the gameplay. For these games it has been the case (for many I've talked to, including myself) that the previous iteration with all expansions is better than the current with no expansions, but the current with all expansions is better than the previous with all expansions.
And the expansions for each game are properly classified as Expansions and not DLC. While the core mechanics stay mostly the same, each expansion also introduces a lot of new stuff (not just new civs) that change how the game is approached.

Civ4 was the best. The lead designer for Civ4, Soren Johnson, has a new Civ style game coming out called the Old World.

I would have preferred a Saints Row 2 remaster as I have heard it was the best one, but I only ever played the demo a little and found the graphics poor and the controls super-jenky.
Still, of those I've played SR:T is my absolute favorite. So I'll almost certainly be grabbing this.

The way that email is written implies that Epic is reaching out to recent purchase makers to just throw some money at them... Like, I could, and have, had other stores do this (Future Shop, in Canada, before BB bought them, you could just head up to the Customer Service desk with your receipt and get the difference), but for the company to pro-actively do that is just straight bad business practice heh

Personally, I have no problem buying from Origin, GOG, etc.. In fact Steam is my second top choice to buy from.
Epic has the resources to compete toe-to-toe with Steam. They have brand recognition, and mountains of money to feed into strong development. They've instead chosen a route of forcing me to a lackluster store front if I want certain (and I'm sure they'd prefer it be all) third-party AAA games on release day.
Their sales and giveaways are great, but that too smells of money just being thrown around for short-term gains. A race to the bottom I choose not to favor in who I support with my purchases. If they improve things I may consider them more so in the future.

I know a lot of people don't like Sweeney's tactics, but a Steam monopoly is better? What's the alternative?

Probably safe to say that 99.99% of gamers enjoy free games, 0.01% go on rants about how much it sucks to get free games.

The Internet Research Agency, just a regular ol' PR firm, amirite?
I guess that's why Mueller had to indict them.Thirteen Russians and three Russian entities were indicted by a federal grand jury in connection with the attack on the 2016 election. The indictment lays out a number of detailed allegations against the Internet Research Agency located in St. Petersburg and against individuals who owned, controlled, funded or worked for the organization.

I still prefer the SR2 to all the rest. The Third was fun, but will live in infamy for killing off Johnny Gat.
Edit: Well, didn't notice it was EGS exclusive. Looks like I won't be getting it anyway.

The name of this game is pretty terrible, but the game looks good. Once they fix the servers I'll give it a shot.
Is it pronounced 'WOL-SEN' or 'WOKEN'?
Wol-sen. Anyone who pronounces it "Woken" (the "l" isn't silence, and there's no "k" in the word) should have their PC taken away and only be allowed to play video games on a Nintendo Switch.
