The only actual Epic Game Store exclusive is Fortnite on PC.

"Fortnite gets a boost from Season 9 but is still far off from its peak. Fortnite made $203 million across console, PC and mobile, up significantly from April but down 38% from May 2018. Console continues to contribute the largest share of players and revenue."

So that fad is coming to an inevitable end and with it Epic's ability to lock down exclusives. They should be focusing all the Fortnite cash on making their platform as good as if not better than Steam.

Almost 2 years of been the most profitable/popular game on the planet? That's some 'fad' :P

Perhaps you missed the part where it read "but down 38% from May 2018." A 38% drop isn't trivial. If Epic were a publicly traded company, a 38% drop from a previous year would cause investors to sell off shares, especially considering Fortnite is Epic's golden cash cow and primary source of profitable income.

I didn't, because even if it had a 100% drop tomorrow it wouldn't change the facts or the past eg:

"Fortnite earned record $2.4bn in 2018, the 'most annual revenue of any game in history."

But i guess you missed the part where the game is still topping the highest grossing game lists, and that they are still making over 200 million dollars a month from ONE GAME. One game that has broken pretty much all records and made the company a fkn mint - enough to single handedly fund all their other projects including their store.

Most AAA games are popular for a month or two at best... Fortnite has been killing it for 2 years straight now.

Any AAA dev would kill to have this 'fad' as you call it.

Apple devices are supported far longer than any Android phone. Kinda makes the price a wash.

We have $200 android phones that are 6 years old at work, and they still get updates.

When does this price wash thing start?

Looks like the MOBA 'fad' is still doing pretty well too...

WTB the next fad.

How about a really, really, really shallow battle royale game? One that everyone can play... and that works on your mobile and in your browser?!?!

I remember playing it during a free weekend and found it quite enjoyable, though that's probably because it was different to the usual types of games I play. That said I played it in co-op and we were primarily doing stupid stuff, exploring and beating each others scores.

For free it's worth a shot.

News Comments > SpellForce 3: Soul Harvest This Month

Tried the campaign co-op but man they ruined it, there was pretty much no action, it was all just walking and chat boxes... talk about boring.

Not only that, but characters you level up, stat up, and kit out just randomly die in the story without anything you can do about it.

Combat was also meh, and everything just felt extremely linear with little effect, from itemisation to stats/levels, as was the RTS aspect.

Spellforce 1 was so much better in every aspect, it was all downhill from there.

I didn't even finish the last game in the series, the game gets stale rather quickly to me for some reason... which is weird as in paper it's really up my alley with decent fps mechanics and proper coop support.

Probably one of my favourite games ever, even better in co-op.

Get it.

Wildlands was quite enjoyable, but the mission variety was terribly lacking...as was the AI.

Hell, FC New Dawn was miles better in most aspects.

Fk off with reskinned buildings and gear, ADD MORE CONTENT!!

Your dungeons are a joke, as are your PVE raids.
Add things for PLAYERS TO DO.

How hard is it? Funcom strikes again... good core mechanics ruined by shit management and poor design.

Looks like it's quite linear with little replayability... though i'll wait for some reviews first.

Bring on Dying Light 2.

News Comments > Anno 1800 Released

I gave this one a shot but it felt like it was just a checklist of things i had to do rather than being able to experiment and build a city of my own.

Each play-through felt very samey as well, and the naval combat but no land battles further inhibited replayability.

A weekend was more than enough for me, which is disappointing as there a distinct lack of city building games out there and even fewer that have multiplayer.

I really enjoyed the first one as well, had quite a bit of replayability with the weapon and gear drops and was enjoyable in co-op.

Reviews looks promising and it's currently buy one copy get one free.. so i may just have to check this one out as well.

Another game i was really looking forward to... shame about the mixed reviews.

Still keen, but probably best to check back in 6-12 months by the sounds of it.

Was really hoping this would be a surprise hit... i mean, they already had an awesome (yet buggy) Engine so a lot of the work should have already been done?

Think i'll stick playing Hunter Call of the Wild co-op until they add more content and improve things here.

I watched a few games on twitch. One thing that immediately pops out. The map is fucking tiny, even compared to Apex Legends. It's miniscule.

Is that necessarily a bad thing though? I watched a few streams and nobody even had a kill well into their matches. In the end i only saw one snippet of combat before I got bored of watching people loot buildings and play with vehicles... and that's with a 'supposed' smallish map.

It honestly needs to be f2p. I saw very little that would draw people away from their current BR game. Maybe i'll try it when it's heavily discounted, but after the mess that was BF1 i have very little motivation to try this...
