How to Fool Your Friends

Is it by underhandedly writing up a project contract that diverts a studios milestone bonuses to your private account to pay for fetish porn and strip shows, aka, "Pulling a Randy?".

Back, with at least one video removed. Guess we don't have to teach people about nazis, we can just erase their existence off the internet and hope that has no negative consequences down the line /s

Gotta admit, I've wanted a game like this for a while now. Shame it'll be several years before I can play it...

Looks nice. I just hope there's something other than "other players" to keep the game interesting, because that's what killed Space Engineers for me.

The "security" thing is just script-kid "hackers" running leaked email/password pairs through their login. They're a big target (Fortnite/v-bucks), and people tend to use the same email to register on multiple services, and too many also use the same password. The same email/password combos getting leaked/hacked this very site's been reporting about happening every other day for the last five years.

Of course, people using the same email/PW combo as they did on PSN or whatever hacked service is clearly Epic's fault. Epic's sin here is that they actually notify you that someone tried to log in with your account; most sites/services won't at all, or unless they go over a certain number of attempts.

Are you possibly implying that increased revenue could lead to better/more games for consumers to enjoy, or even better work conditions?

Nah, everyone knows the 18% goes straight to the CEO's next yacht.

That's sarcasm, but tbh most people believe it works like that for every company on the planet.

I'm not sure when we collectively decided that buying a game off a retail store and then opening it to find just a Steam key, or a game installer that first installs Steam, was super OK.

I bought the game in a store, a physical copy, and the thing turns out to be 100% tied to Steam. I cannot play without steam, without installing their store, without having to log into their store and using their services and being tied to their terms of service and their extensive user and activity tracking. Even though it's a game on a disk I bought at a brick and mortar shop, it's a Steam exclusive and I now have to have Steam store on my system.

And we all have now decided that that was OK, but this, this isn't.

I'll wait for the steam sale next year. Also Epic, stick that dirty Forenite money in my pocket and sell it at a discount then I'll buy from your store, not before.
You can buy it off Ubi's store, if Epic offends you so. It's not like Ubi games on Steam don't just launch Ubi's launcher on top.

I've never seen so many words written about a game announcement that manages to give zero information about what the game actually is. May as well be a SCUMM adventure game.

Also,
“When Respawn approached us with the idea for this game, we were immediately supportive. A single player, story-driven title in the Star Wars universe was exactly what we were looking for, and we know the fans have been eager for one, as well”
Didn't these people put a bullet into two different "single player, story-driven title in the Star Wars universe" games while they were still in the crib over the last 5 years? I can't be the only one that'd prefer 1313 over Yet Another Lone Jedi vs Empire game.

This just makes me wonder how shitty the co-op experience is going to be, since I assume they won't be using Steamworks for online functionality anymore if the game gonna be exclusive to Epic... They can barely be bothered to keep up with ensuring their own Fortnite Save the World operates without massive lag, connection issues, and random server-side data loss.
Lag, connection issues, and server connection loss are unrelated to the friends network (except for a catastrophic platform issue). Steamworks and Epic's platform help with friends, server browser, and some analytics, but after that it's all dependant on the actual game, and you'd be seeing the same issues regardless of which platform the game is on if the game itself is busted; Fortnite's stability issues (if it indeed has them, never played) would still be there if the game were on Steam.

I mean, to be fair,
these affect their marketing & publishing organization and operations teams

Basically the departments responsible for all the bad decisions yet get paid the most.

Just shat up a perfectly good line is what you did.

1. It's not WB or even associated with the movie license they operate
2. Anyone that ever felt compelled to pay for anything in SoW2 has to have been really bad at the game
Awww. Someones upset that pointing out shitty actions, by shitty corporations, engaging in shitty behaviors, and having a negative impact on gaming as a whole musta really hurt.

Think of it this way on your point 2. If they thought that people wouldn't pay for it, they wouldn't have included the option in the first place. In other words, they made a calculated decision that the number of people being PO'd by that action(s), and the resulting loss of sales would be outweighed by the people paying it.

Ever try to not communicate like a child?

The lootbox/microtransaction stuff in a singleplayer game was clearly shit, and it was also clearly either sabotaged by the developers or massively toned down to the point of not needing to exist at all. I don't know how much money WB made off their little in-game market, but the game at no point even hinted either explicitly or through its difficulty that anyone should ever care for it, and there was never a single item in there that you couldn't get through playing the game normally at a leisurely pace. There wasn't even all that feared "they'll make you have to grind!" crap given the game was piss-easy.

WB fucked up and they walked it back fairly fast, but anyone that thought the MT stuff was an actual problem with the game is just clueless.

And in any case, you're still going on about a completely separate developer and publisher working on a completely separate license.
