Yeah, I hear they have the Antarctic market locked down.
Don't forget the Western Sahara, huge market there.
Siberia has Brobdingnagian market potential.

Laugh it up if you want, the game makes a killing in Asia and the mobile version makes more in a month than most "AAA" games make in their lifetime. Thinking North America/EU/Aus is the only place videogames exist or can make profit is terribly silly.

Would really need a free demo of this stuff to even consider it. Current game streaming stuff I've tried has every input feel like there's good old v-sync mouselag, and even though the res may be 1080+, the video artifacts are really blatant. Even room to room stuff like steam link feels bad to me.

Cheating online... I never got the point of that, it beats the purpose as far as I'm concerned.

Cheating offline, sure, I use that often when I want to skip multiple hours grinds'n'stuff.
Keep in mind a lot of games have multiplayer grinds for item/class unlocks and vanity, so while a lot of cheaters will be out there just to grief or satisfy their power fantasies, others are just wanting to cut down the grind.

My heart bleeds for these poor, poor souls.

Given it's F2P it makes sense to get these people out of the pool ASAP. If there were any up-front fee, I'd've gone with an initial shadow-ban / cheater-only servers for a few days followed by a hard ban to incentivize a second purchase and keep the "account" flagged to check for reincidence (and repeat the ban to buy buy cycle). Free money off spoiled rich talentless scum, everyone wins.

The Kurzgesagt guy seems really upset that he got them to agree with his criticisms on the addiction video and delete it because HE wanted to make a video and call them out on it. I think he should be satisfied they admitted the episode wasn't up to par and tossed it. How many times have you interacted with any company and got that result?
A lot of Youtube "celebs" are nightmare people. It's not entirely surprising; they've sunk their life into being a talking head or "content creator" on a platform full of fickle viewers where the difference between paying the month's rent and getting $10 in views depends on how baity their video thumbnail is and if the YT "recommended" god selects them for a few days of fame. They will happily tear eachother apart for a chance in the spotlight.

Plus, everyone loves seeing the little guy tear down some established name. Or really just loves things getting torn down, no matter what.

I guess that's one way of getting RDR1/2 on PC...
My guess is that the final say on whether Xbox games will play on PC will be up to the publisher, and that certain high-profile exclusives will be exempt.
Would be weird, given most high-profile exclusives on Xbox are published by MS, or at the least sponsored by them. T2 would have to be kinda twatish to block a free "port" if the whole process is handled by MS.

No, but then again I'm also not tired of WW2 games or sci-fi or whatever gets labeled a fad next. Most of that may be that for the last 3 years I buy one new game every 3 months at most and play most things 2-4 years late, though...

Who could possibly be stupid enough to think they would ever contemplate that?

"Yes, we're going to be exclusive to another store and not sell it on the store we ourselves own and operate."

I'm uncertain if Steam still takes a cut if Stardock is auto-generating keys. Anyone know?
They don't. Steam acts as a payment processor, and may in some cases charge for high bandwidth use; but for something like this, they won't see a penny.

(also technically the keys are generated by steam by request of the publisher/studio, but unless you're completely new or requesting half a million keys in one day they'll just push them through, and companies keep a backup inventory)

It's a DMCA, it can't be thrown out outright. Anyone can write one up for free using a template, and it's on the receiving party to prove, via hiring lawyers and starting a civil suit against the sender. In the meantime, platforms like Steam have to assume the sender is telling the truth just because they pinky-swore in a legal document.

And of course, apart from being expensive to fight a DMCA, even if you're in the right, you can fail depending on the judge being in a bad mood or being taken to some district on the other side of the country known for always calling one way or the other. And even if you win, they can escalate further.

Sending a DMCA for anything other than straight-up piracy or copying is generally a cheap bitch move.

Wasn't there a story very recently that Epic users were resorting to the Steam forums for tech support on Subnautica 'cos the Epic ShitShow provides no real support and certainly nothing as immediate as the forums!

Edir - found it... https://bit.ly/2Q8e2gW

But all this choice is great for us users!

Support forums should be on the developer/publisher; that steam's forums are where people go for technical support, even for steam exclusive games, is an aberration that should have never happened.

Because launchers provide easy patching, friend systems, multiplayer APIs, mod integration, user friendly storefront-to-library UX, portability, and simple (non-denuvo/starforce) DRM.
