In a statement, Epic said that, in a fast-moving video game industry, longstanding industry standards were no longer enough to protect players.

“No developer creates a game with the intention of ending up here,” the company said in a statement. “We accepted this agreement because we want Epic to be at the forefront of consumer protection and provide the best experience for our players.”

Yeah, right

Something else I forgot to mention. It's not just the 10+ reviews for this game or any other game. It's usually the hundreds of reviews I read on Steam that are the best guide.

Which is why Steam is such an awesome platform.

Guys, stop being sheep and being lead around on a leash. Stop listening to influencers and reviewers and think for yourselves. Take the 2 hour try and if you don't like it, refund it but at least you gave it a shot.

Umm, no. Two hours is not enough time versus 10+ reviews. Ever think devs will just front-load their games to get you past the two hours?

If you consider the sources carefully, the great majority of the time you can ascertain what you're going to get from the reviews.

I just don't see me buying this.

They screwed it up so much initially. Just turns me off even now.

Still, I'd buy a Ubisoft game on Uplay, an EA game on Origin, or an Epic game on EGS. In fact, if it's only on Steam or EGS I'll buy it on EGS because I don't have utter contempt for the developers making the games that have enhanced my life throughout the years. Even a 12% cut is highway robbery for a payment processor, but it's better than Steam's 30% which would make Bernie Madoff blush.

I'll stick with Steam as my go-to platform.

Developers are free to choose whatever platform they want their apps distributed on. There are plenty of choices today. I guess they don't get the same "utter contempt" vibe that you do.

Strange that has to be pointed out.

All depends on how "competitive" these two companies really are against each other.

There's only two of them, which leaves all kinds of room for shenanigans, collaborative or not.

I read all 5 of the GoT books, and was relatively happy with the first 7 seasons of the TV version. The last season destroyed all of that. It was like an intentional "f you" from the writers.

So I won't be watching anything else related to that series. HBO hasn't gotten a dime from me since.

Same. That was a terrible headline. Very click-baity. I'm glad I have an ad blocker. No ad revenue for them!
It's not click-bait in any form of the description...people who know Multiversus know that James was added to the game as a character and as such, those that would be interested in said game would know that the character was banned, not the person.

A click-bait title would be "LeBron James banned from tournament at EVO 2022."

Uh, of course it's clickbait. People that don't know what multi-verse is would still click on it because Lebron James was banned from some event. You act like people who don't know what multi-verse is (the majority) would just ignore the article. Bizarre.

The article talks about things you should do or not do to prolong the life of your laptop / cell phone battery. The only thing they show for Windows is a free app that "warns" you when the charge is getting too high. They also say you shouldn't let it discharge too much, but you should discharge it completely once a month. Mmmkay. The app I mentioned doesn't do any of these things. It simply warns you when your charge has reached some limit. So why isn't there an app that you can schedule to do all this automatically? Why do I have to be warned or told to do certain things instead of the computer just doing it automatically based on preferences? I don't get it.

I'm sorry you feel we are letting you down, being inconsistent, or acting with anything but pure intent.

You run the best website on the internet. You have a fair policy. The simpler the rules the better. Some people are just high maintenance and can't accept that certain gray areas will exist and it's not your job to have to constantly use nuance on whether to moderate posts. How exhausting that would be.

User reviews are the main selection criteria I use for buying / not buying a game.

It has served me well on Steam since its inception, and beats the crap out of "official" reviews biased by who knows what. Of course there are idiots who give crappy reviews. And then there are idiots who don't understand basic statistics.

Epic has stayed away from reviews, which is why I've stayed away from Epic. Figures they're now going to screw even that part up.

I've had pretty good luck with Soda Sense. Have had it about 6 months now. I don't get flavors from them. I'm not sure why people focus on that part. You can get those from a variety of places.

But for consistent carbonation I've been pretty happy. You need to make sure the water you're injecting is cold (refrigerated), and I always shake it after injection about 8 times.

Only issue I'm seeing at the moment as I look on their site is that stuff has gotten noticeably more expensive. I'm glad I got a couple extra cylinders before the price went up.

Every time a new Unreal Engine comes out with their spiffy new "demos" everyone is impressed. Same thing happened with UE4.

But you never really see it translated to actual games.

Washington Post is so full of it.

They act like it's just a given that some great injustice is being done and the video game industry is complicit in it. Like it's just obvious on its face.

Wow. Reading the PC gamer article I would have sworn it was something from the Onion.

The fact that it isn't makes it even funnier!
