Problem is, everyone who had a license transfer and got W10 free isn't technical a customer... so I am guessing MS just doesn't give a fuck.

So DLSS crops the picture and makes it brighter?

Funfact - FF15 is not deterministic, if you play the same scene at the same day the same way you will get completely different light and clouds every single time, and clouds affect illumination. So I'd bet this was not intentional.

Even so, something seriously wonky is going on with DLSS, like the reflection in the water is PITCH BLACK (lower left) which doesn't happen in the game

This is great, and it's nice seeing the old Epic coming back ; )

Yeah, it is good, although they are hoping to entice devs into using UE4.

Nothing wrong with that. Although I'd admit that UE4 does not really work well with anything fantasy or medieval..

Uber eats is a simple food order dropship app no? So I'd say the place he ordered food from is the problem here, not uber eats...

Nevermind me. Apparently this app links restaurant orders with uber drivers to make them basically sub-contracted delivery drivers. I don't get how they make money of that but apparently they don't make enough. Also TL:DR

Also I am sure there is a fetish market for that and they'd be worth some $$$

Steam sucked ass when they were the pioneers, plus they started out with way less resources than Epic has now. That's not good enough anymore, yet all these publisher started storefronts- Uplay, Origin, etc. still start out terrible and only work up to barely passable.
If they don't come out the gate with all the features Steam already has plus some extra features to differentiate themselves, then it's clear they only intend to compete based on forced exclusives.

Well, that's not how software is made these days. Epic is doing it right: release a minimum viable product, get feedback, and iterate. These guys know what they're doing. It'll get better, and be a lot closer to Steam in a couple of years.
yep

If they knew what they are doing then pulling indies off steam that announced their games already is most definitely the most retarded thing to ever be doing.

Just look at Coffee Stains latest video
Is this the one?

To be more accurate, the streamer who was caught breaking the Anthem NDA didn't actually have any EA Origins games to lose according to the company who confirmed to USgamer that they checked and "the user didn't have any other games on their Origin account" and that EA "didn't delete anything."

So in other words he was a useless titwallet "influencer" who was desperately trying to get some clicks by making up complete horseshit.

Yeah, and I even fell for it. Blegh

Equifax breach was ‘entirely preventable’ had it used basic security measures, says House report.

And yet none of the execs are in jail.

And they weren't even fined anything, it's good to be a criminal in the USA apparently. As long as you are too big to fail.

Coffee Stain Studios aka, makers of Satisfactory pulled from Steam as well making it a epic store exclusive.

Which makes it a no buy for me.

Won’t slow me down a bit. Satisfactory is shaping up to be an awesome mix of exploration and factory building, and it has co-op. I already have an account from UT and Fortnite STW, so...might as well. So far, it’s the ONLY game I intend to buy on the Epic store, but more unmissable games may get coaxed into an exclusive on there.
First we complain about Steam's near monopoly.
Then we bitch about Valve taking 30% (not that it directly affects us) .
Plus we lament the thought of yet another launcher to install, all the while conveniently forgetting this fact alone does not mean diddly.
And we moan non-stop about Steam's DRM.
But when a competitor dares rise up their head we refuse to buy anything from them ... because reasons

We have become a bunch of self defeating "get off my lawn" grumpy old men.

Fighting exclusivity deals is never self-defeating, it's actually the pivotal point of the PC platform. Choice stops when we are forced onto 1 store and only 1. Steam and even uPlay and Origin don't do this, because they allow key add and thus competition beyond. Heck, even Battle.net does allow it.

Meanwhile, Epic games much like whatever the crappy launcher from rockstar is called don't allow this. They are anti-competition and anti-consumer no matter how much of a cut they take. And all that aside, THIS particular dev LIED about it, stealth removed the steam page and made stupid jokes about it. Don't even care if was because of an NDA, if money talks then I think we should talk money. As in not giving them any.

Clearly a headline written by someone with a barebones understanding of the intricacies of the english language.

Ethical impact ratings seem a good idea though, and I kinda wonder where Fifa 19 FUT would land on such a check?

"Alpha Steamer" I assume that's supposed to be Streamer, but main lesson to be learned here: services such as Origin, Steam, Uplay, Bethesda, etc. you don't own anything that can't be immediately taken away by some asshole corporation.

Well as a German let me just say I hope some company tries to pull this on me Not that I would violate NDA's, but the principle action here is probably not legal if a court looks at it. And NDA's much like EULAs are not necessarily binding.

Also I'd be curious what the NDA actually says.

Ignoring the legality of the "consoles", apparently all the plastic tat in his store can be bought from Aliexpress for 1/2 the price. No Soulja branding, just the same cheap Chinese tat resold at a higher price, dropshipped upon order. Video comparing his stuff against the same products on Aliexpress here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFwbrYCh3Oo. Dropshipping isn't new, but he's trying to big it up with his name. Exact opposite effect on me, but then I'm hardly his target market.

Is it illegal to dropship like this?

Companies capitulate too quickly on this nonsense. Here is a strategy that works - ignore them. Whether you're dealing with the left or the right, the various Twitter mobs have the attention span of a gnat and move on whenever a fresh news story lands.

The best thing is by kowtowing whenever such a shit-storm hits they are fueling them more and more. And conversely they are also fueling the opposition, which makes everything even more toxic.

However, ignoring what's posted on your company twitter isn't an option if you have investors
