I don't know about the newer ones, but I do know the older TW titles have some really stand out mods.

up until epic almost all games were exclusive to steam and all the fight and cry babies that got there gamestop games box with a steam slip and code inside never did a thing to stop it. and in the end just accepted there fate and are now cry babies fan boys complaining about epic. I can totally see this going the same way after all they were all weak in the mind before and nothing has really changed now.

That was due to Steam's own success and popularity vs back deals being made. From what I can tell publishers always went the Steam route because it made sense, vs Epic's, 'Pssst.. hey... I got this big bag of money, you just gotta do me a favor.".

I'm still going to be vague, but none the less.. spoiler text: For me, Alyx pretty much was Episode 3.

So gave it a resolution to the whole HL story arc like the publication of Laidlaw? From what I read it does the opposite, like retconning an important event...

It serves it's purpose, and opens the door for more HL. Semi-vague spoiler text: And no, I know what you're referring to and it doesn't retcon anything. Retcon would be the story acting like something happened differently in a previous game,(brute force "over writing" it) or ignoring something that happened. Not here, there's a cause and effect to everything.

Also just because Laidlaw's story would have resolved itself in a specific way doesn't invalidate the fact that this is now the next chapter, and should definitely be played -after- Ep 2. It exists, Laidlaw's doesn't in official game form. I'm sure it would have been great

Lots of people upset about Half-Life 2: Episode 3 but after they delivered on Alyx. I hope they have more VR plans for Half-Life.

Alyx was amazing.. So damn good.

Trying to sleep at 1am and my adrenaline is just going because I had head crabs jumping at my face all night in VR is something else. Scared the shit out of me near the start when you first fine the flashlight...

Your narrative is not based upon reality. I'm highly critical of the game. I think 3.9.1 is a mess and CIG was greedy for trying to combine a new patch.

3.9,1's been kind to me so far. I did hear about the server queue mess on Friday, but I logged in around midnight my time that night and got straight in (not a huge surprise or anything, just saying). Counting that one I've had two game sessions lasting about 2 - 3 hours each. Only major bug I hit was at one point the animations for getting in and out of my ship were triggering but the ship doors weren't opening. That was a first. Other's millage will obviously vary.

Seeing NPC's standing on chairs is getting old. I understand they need more server power to handle the NPC's and that's coming with certain server tech goals, but for FFS just take them out of the game till then.

On the other hand, gotta say, seeing the navy armada of ships was pretty cool. First time seeing some of those cap ships in game, getting out of my ship and being able to EVA right up to them to get an idea of the scale gave me a taste of SQ 42 which is what I'm really waiting for (heavy emphasis on wait).

Pledge wise, I bought in ages ago to where I got both game packages for one price. Upgraded my starter to an explorer version of the same ship and that was that. I prefer to earn stuff in game so there's as much still left to do in the game itself. And now my gear and ship upgrades have been carrying over from one patch to the next which is nice. Has me playing a bit more than just a couple hours to see what's new each patch.

As far as "#6" goes Mr. Smart is not acknowledging a few facts: A large portion of the initial claims were dropped, and the remaining were pretty much slaughtered by Amazon's response to Crytek about whether CIG was breaking their license agreement by using a different engine (Lumberyard).
"“Normally we wouldn’t discuss a customer relationship — those relationships are confidential and we take that very seriously. However, given the circumstances, we have asked CIG for authorization to share, and they have given approval. We can confirm that yes, Amazon did license Lumberyard to CIG in 2016, and we included Cryengine (what you licensed to us) as part of that license to CIG.”"

Immediately after that email Skadden dropped out (gee, I wonder why) and the whole thing began to wind down with Crytek hiring a smaller set of lawyers to handle the wrap up. Unfortunately the whole thing ended in a settlement, so no definitive "winner", but it's pretty easy to work out who had the stronger arm in the lawsuit.

Here's an older, yet still telling list of Mr. Smart predictions vs reality.

I don't argue against anyone stating this game's taking too long to come out. I'm ok with the long development time as long as SQ42 gets here in the next year or two and shows the development time made for a great game. They want to go balls to the wall with SC universe, have at it. There's no mandatory subscription, and if the demand's there to continue funding the game with the model they're using, then it is what it is.

Mr. Smart's reality bending crusade is another matter, however.

One of the problems with all of this since the start is the more effective the preventive measures are the less needed they appear to be to the less informed.

If the whole world pulled off a perfect social distancing maneuver right when this started many would be asking what the big deal even was (some still are).

Yeah, voice actors, I believe, will be among the early casualties. I'm sure there will be need for touch up artists to check and clean up AI results (n all categories) for a while, however.

What would the install size be?

Looks to be 70+ gigs.... will post with the install size once it's done.

60.7 gigs for me.

You'll want to spawn on ArcCorp if you want to go directly to the main event.

Note - I haven't logged in yet since the update, but that's where the "convention center" is located.

Edit - oooh.. things don't go live till 3pm Pacific

It's actually the same policy as Steam's in terms of time limits.
and more

The one main difference is I don't ever recall Steam discussing the return on games someone's been banned from. They may have it somewhere I just don't remember reading / hearing anything on that personally.

Epic also deserves some credit for not repeating the Steam idiocy of double launcher DRM in the case of UbiSoft games. I have bought two Ubi games and some DLC (Ghost Recon Breakpoint and The Division 2) with coupons from EGS and after linking with uPlay you never need to launch the Epic client again for those games. Well, unless you buy a DLC on the EGS. Then you need to launch the game exactly *once* more from the Epic client to register the DLC on uPlay. Once that linking is done, it is back to uPlay only.
I would expect that's more up to ubisoft than steam?

Ya. There's a wiki for Steam games that don't require Steam to run:

Woah.. didn't realize that was a thing.

Not a very compelling argument. "If I want it on release day" is directly contrary to the use of the word "Forcing". No one is forcing you to buy it on release day. You're the one doing that.

" 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."

I clearly state "IF" I want it on release day. There's no arguing this, if I wanted to buy Borderlands on release day on PC I had to purchase it through EGS. I get that I don't HAVE to buy it on release day, but that's where the "if" comes in.

And my gripe with the storefront isn't in it's ability to find games within it. With all it's blunders, I literally do not feel safe purchasing from it. Not to mention other issues.
