Better for this fight to be fought now, rather than when apple figures out people access storefronts using safari, and since the are the ones creating safari, they should then be entitled to 30% of all storefront gross income. Yes, imagine a website having to pay a 30% markup to apple else be blocked from apple products. That is the future once apple realizes they can gouge even more.

Title should be amended to clarify it's been "released" into early access. I don't know about other people, but I don't consider EA games to be really released.

On the YouTube channel of Rock Paper Shotgun I mentioned that BG3 looks ridiculously much like Divinity Original Sin 2, saying that if you'd just fall into a dev video of BG3 you'd think you'd be looking at DOS2. Rock Paper Shotgun reacted to my comment saying that it's ridiculous I'd say this and that the game "looks nothing like DOS2". I replied in turn with a timestamp of their BG3 video where the inventory is open and the EXACT SAME ITEM ICONS are used in DOS2. Maybe they're placeholders, but the point is that my statement couldn't be that much off the mark for them replying the way they did.
Anyway, yeah, I was excited when I heard the first news about BG3. Crazy excited. Not anymore. I bled DOS2 absolutely dry, pouring hours and hours into my first run but never finishing it so months later I started over and poured hours and hours in it again and still couldn't finish it somehow. If you'd ask me how I'd imagine my personal hell, it'd be playing DOS2 again in an eternal loop.
I'll get excited about BG3 again when I see footage of it and I don't IMMEDIATELY think I'm looking at DOS2.
If the sum of the IQs at RPS was transformed into the same quantity of tons of oxygen, you would suffocate instantly. They've gotten so blatantly stupid that I almost immediately assume that anything on that site is not only wrong, but the exact opposite of whatever they say...
I only recently subscribed to their YT channel. So far it seems OK. I avoided RPS like the plague after they got very SJW. The review of The Sinking City wasn't about the game, but about how racist Lovecraft was (indeed, that dead guy that lies in a grave in the process of becoming a fucking fossil by now). Shortly after, there was another woke review about some other game that was the straw that broke the camel' back for me.
These two blokes that run their YT channel seem not to care about politics luckily.
