No offense, but I was expecting something a bit more impressive. My MS Paint skills would demolish this "real artist".

So, uh...genuine question. Is this the PC version of RDR2? If so, how does a service like this handle game crashes and things of that nature? Do you just get kicked back to the main screen for the app and can immediately start another session?

At this point, they can add a billion new features to their store client, but it won't change anything. I still won't use the EGS simply because they are throwing their cash around bribing developers for exclusivity. Fuck that anti-consumerism bullshit.

Hmm read quite some criticism here. I'll pay 50 bucks just to experience the vibe. There aren't enough good westerns in gaming. At all.

Some of you should really subscribe to the Nit-picking Club though. Fucking hell.


The last western game I liked on PC was Outlaws, so I can't wait to give this a try.

At least RDR2 is a huge, super-detailed open world that shipped for consoles on two blu-ray discs... What's this game's excuse?

Massive amounts of micro-transaction images for the online store.

If I could give them a golden star I would. Since I can't maybe I'll buy 2077 though.

I'll buy two just to be sure they know that was indeed the right decision.

Leave it to Take 2 Interactive to bring actual gambling into gaming.

Sorry, the article's reasoning is basically the same as the Counter-Strike skin gambling that was occurring a while back where it would take a 3rd party to perform the illegal act in question.

This is no different than any other in-game gambling system using in-game currency that can be purchased. I can pull up a billion mobile games that are virtual casinos that let you buy the in-game currency with real-world money, why is this any different?

Man, you must be a shitty parent (no pun intended) if you just let your kids play non-stop for so long that they aren't even using the bathroom. That is just child neglect if you ask me and those parents in the story should be locked up.

Soo... free to play, but you have to buy like 4-5 DLC packs ? Of course there is a bundle, but still.


No, I heard that you'll be getting all DLC's up until Shadowkeep for free as part of the F2P offering. I mean, Destiny 2 was free on the Blizzard launcher for a while there many months ago if I recall correctly, so this isn't a surprise.

Am I the only one who is generally not interested in this game (Epic Game Store exclusivity aside)? I mean, it looks pretty much the same as the others and don't see anything new. There is soooo much going on in the environments too that it is hard to focus on the actual enemies. Meh.

People sure do have short memories. Steam is anti-consumer, monopolistic trash. I'd be happy to see the platform die ASAP. They're solely responsible for the death of right of resale for PC games. How rich that people complain about exclusives, when Steam itself already has tons of exclusives.

It's a privacy nightmare with the ability to track everything you do. It forces updates both for its own client and applications more frequently and forcefully than Microsoft ever did. It's a resource hog even when doing nothing. It's also full of DRM.

I personally try to use GOG for as many purchases as possible.

Third-party exclusives are the epitome of anti-consumer choice. Valve has never engaged in this on their platform. There's no justification for it beyond artificially building a user base quickly instead of building a better platform than Steam and letting it naturally grow through consumer choice.

The bottomline is EGS has NOTHING on Steam and Epic knows this. So the only way they can bring people to their platform is force them to. That's not sustainable.

Any game using Steamworks is a Steam exclusive. You can buy it elsewhere, but you're locked into Steam as a distribution model. Plenty of other games are also locked into Steam, if unofficially - there are literally tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of games only available via Steam.

That argument is NOT a valid comparison of the type of exclusivity we're talking about and you know it. Please don't grasp.

Functionally, it is. The result is there's only one service for you to use. You're just caught up in who is at fault, but the result is the same, so I couldn't be bothered to endlessly complain about it.

This isn't even a valid argument in my opinion. If a game developer chooses which distribution platform to use based on all of the offerings, fee structures, and features of said platform...and just happens to only choose Steam...you cannot fault anyone but the game developer for not branching out. However, if one of the said platforms decides to kick a bunch of money their way to make that decision easier (exclusivity bribe), then that is when this becomes anti-consumer all the way to the bank. It isn't saying "hey we'll give you some money to put your game in our store in order to compete with other stores" it is "hey we'll give you some money to put your game ONLY in our store and we will compete with nobody" instead.

EDIT: Just as others have said, if you put the EGS next to Steam, the EGS gets blown out of the water. Epic will be scared...real scared...when they cannot secure exclusivity deals any longer and consumers have a choice between using the EGS and Steam for popular titles. Frankly, you'd have to be a complete idiot to choose EGS over Steam from a purely functional standpoint as a consumer.

I'm not sure when we collectively decided that buying a game off a retail store and then opening it to find just a Steam key, or a game installer that first installs Steam, was super OK.

I bought the game in a store, a physical copy, and the thing turns out to be 100% tied to Steam. I cannot play without steam, without installing their store, without having to log into their store and using their services and being tied to their terms of service and their extensive user and activity tracking. Even though it's a game on a disk I bought at a brick and mortar shop, it's a Steam exclusive and I now have to have Steam store on my system.

And we all have now decided that that was OK, but this, this isn't.

The difference is that the game developer chose to use Steam as their distribution platform of choice -- the retail box copies state right there on the package you'll be getting those games via Steam. You didn't just open the box and go "Oh, surprise!" unless you're buying things without even reading them or doing your homework. Also, Steam didn't bribe them with lots of money to do it. That my friend, is the kicker.
