I'm intrigued and have this on my wishlist but I think 22 (on sale) bucks is too much for it...

Looks like a solid $10 for me.
Got it via Gamepass on Xbox One, played 30 minutes or so. Beware, this is a rogue-hard. You die, you start at the very beginning. Progress only seems to be the campfires you lit with previous wanderers.

Yeah, from let's plays this is already a hard skip for me.

That's the one major downside. You never know when these storefronts and/or games will disappear. Which is why I won't buy into any of it unless they run it like GOG where I can DL and keep a copy of the game and run it offline in perpetuity.

Isn't the Epic store DRM free?

That's because it's so barebones that it's BARELY a working download manager Devs can add DRM as they see fit. Obviously Subnautica choose not to.

We believe if we iterate and work with developers, we can reverse platform fragmentation in the game industry while connecting developers and players closer together.

By fragmenting the players from the developers even further? How does that work exactly?

At least there is a joke here, because most Fortnight players also use.. Discord. And no surprise, Tencent is investor in Discord.

Activision/Blizzard knows that mobile is more lucrative. This is a chart for daily revenue......which they want Diablo and Warcraft to top :

I suspected this chart would make me sad... I was not wrong.

Indeed, not what I wanted to read in the xmas season.

The volume of videos being uploaded to YouTube is truly mind boggling...

And it's 99% all the same garbage. Assholes who don't want to do any real work uploading clickbait stupidity in hopes of getting their money for nothin' and their chicks for free. Every single time I land on Youtube's front page it's just painful to look at. Here we go, perfect example #1.

"When you 'THINK' your FAST and then THIS HAPPENS 3"

Can't even spell right and it has 3.8 million views after being up for 1 week.

I'm glad I'm too old for this stupidity.

You do know that the youtube frontpage is actually generated based on your liked videos, favorites and playlists? My frontpage looks pretty interesting (to me) and has ZERO mainstream garbage in it.

Mainly because I browse here as "frontpage"

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

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.
