I hope Epic sticks to their guns and continues to uphold the ban.

The entitlement of not only this kid but those supporting him is ridiculous. They act like it's okay for him to cheat, since it's part of a career. Spoiled idiots.

You're officially a fucking moron for buying a game on Steam that then links you to have to play it through Origin. Same with games Ubisoft games sold on Steam requiring Uplay.

You're literally giving the companies who MADE the fucking games LESS money so that you can have MORE inconvenience. While GabeN just
adds another integer to his account balance.

Prove me wrong.

What part of not wanting your credit card on multiple download services don't you understand?

F*&king m-word.
Narrowing that attack vector, you must be so proud. For xmas does you g-ma knit you sweaters w/the words:

LOL

You quote "fucking moron" for his post and "F*&king m-word" for mine.

Brilliant!

Anybody who gave a single $ to this shyster won't get a drop of sympathy from me.

Laughter and derision, yes. Sympathy, no.

But thanks for the entertainment

News Comments > Steam Shields Borderlands Games from Review Bombing

Anyone with a few brain cells would be well aware that Epic pays large amounts of money for their timed exclusives. That's literally the only reason why any developer/publisher would agree to that deal. Without that bribe, they would just make their games available on both EGS and Steam.

Really? You have a source and figures as to these obvious large amounts of money? Epic has been around a long time. They also have the hottest thing going with Fortnite, so many gamers have already downloaded their software already. If they're then willing to offer 12% instead of 30%, why wouldn't a developer consider going with them if they get to keep that revenue? Why would they want to compete with themselves because a customer decides to go to Steam to buy their product instead? "Literally the only reason". LOL

Also, calling 30% "Mafia-style" is absurd. 30% is the standard cut for digital storefronts. It's the same cut that Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, GOG, Apple and Google take. Steam offers more features than all of those platforms. EGS offers 12% because it literally has no features and a tiny selection. It also passes overhead costs on to the customer.

As a customer, it makes sense to either buy a game or not based on the overall value you get for the money you pay.

This whole faux indignation thing has nothing to do with that. 30% is ridiculous, no matter who does it. Tim Sweeney knows that. If Epic turns around and charges 30% once they have those "valuable" features available, then a developer would be silly to sign up for an exclusive.

Obviously gamers who have bought an exclusive from Epic feel that the money they spend for the features they get is worth it. If Valve feels they have to charge 30% to provide the features they have, then that's fine too. It's called competition.

Competition in any industry is healthy. Valve is the king, and will remain so as long as it, you know, competes.

Steam is my platform of choice, but only because of the deals. Epic's prices are pretty bad. And they don't have a review system, which also keeps me away (for now).

That said, I find the indignation here about exclusivity ridiculous, considering Valve charges 30% to distribute. Versus 12% for Epic. Anyone with a few brain cells would realize why some devs would agree to exclusivity with Epic. 30% is Mafia-style practice. I'm glad devs have a choice now.

The prices in the Epic game store are much higher than Steam.

But free is free I guess. So I have Fortnite and now Oxenfree.

For everything else, it doesn't compare to Steam.

News Comments > Cyberpunk 2077 Punks Epic Exclusivity

Unless it's on Steam these days there's a good chance I won't even know about it and an even better chance I won't care.

Fortnite was one of the few titles that I got on another platform since it had high visibility and my nephew wanted me to get it, and of course, since it was free.

Unless it's a gift, I really have no desire to bring another sell platform into it, primarly because of the Steam sales that I'm more than willing to wait for.

I'm still very happy with my 980ti card.

I'll probably keep it another couple of years, as I'm also happy with 1080 resolution. I think 4K a couple years from now is the sweet spot anyway. I really don't see the rush.

It's kind of fun to watch all the idiots who absolutely must have their instant gratification and will spend big $$ to play games that don't even come close to needing bleeding edge tech.

I could afford the latest card without blinking an eye. But I'm anti-moron on principle.

Seeing as how the backers of this "project" are some of the dumbest tools to ever walk the face of the Earth, I won't shed a tear if they don't get a dime back.

So many gullible idiots.

News Comments > MS on PC Gaming

56. Re: MS on PC Gaming Jun 14, 2018, 23:27 wrlwnd
 
MS used to get a good deal of money from me.

Whether I was buying a console (XBOX 360), or games for it, or Visual Studio products (2005 and 2008), or one of their OS's (Windows 95, Windows XP, Windows 7), or a Windows Mobile device, or some flavor of their office products. They were doing pretty well having me as a customer.

But I haven't purchased a single product from them in years.

I'm perfectly content now playing on Windows 7 with Steam and its huge offering of great games. I'm also very happy with my PS4. I'm still using Visual Studio 2008 and just laugh at how poor their VS offerings have been the last 10 years. I use an Android phone and Google office products.

MS has dropped the ball completely. They could disappear altogether and I really wouldn't care. Frankly I don't see what the hubbub is from pretty much anything they say or do these days. They just aren't relevant anymore.

I can pretty much guarantee that Valve will ban any games that simulate or encourage rape, pedophilia, child molestation, etc.

What about games that simulate or encourage killing and murder? They'll get rid of those too right? RIGHT?

Well, we all know rape is way worse than murder. It's okay to shoot people's heads off all day!

Self-driving cars will prove themselves as overwhelmingly safer than human drivers.

Of course that still won't be good enough for some. They'd rather be ten times more likely to get hurt by another human than a machine.
