What is wrong with free stuff? This is fucking awesome.
Nothin' wrong with free stuff, but yanking the game off of Steam is kindof of a dick move. I'm assuming this game is integrated with the Steam friends' list? So if you already own the game on Steam, now none of your friends have the option of buying it on that platform to conveniently join your games?
People are acting like Epic touched them in their naughty place.

It's got a nice look and it's good that they've made an effort at some story "depth" but, I can't help but feel this franchise has "Jumped the shark".

Speaking of streamers, I'm done with hearing what they think of a game while they play if for a few hours before moving on to the next thing. It's always along the lines of I like it as if they have become shills if they believe that or not. I just ask the chat what they think vs the streamer, seems more honest. Yeah the streamer likes all the games they play so much next day 90% of the time they are on to next.
Average contract prices for 512GB and 1TB SSDs have a chance to plunge below $0.1 per GB by the end of this year, hitting an all-time low.
This change will cause 512GB SSDs to replace their 128GB counterparts and become market mainstream, second only to 256GB SSDs.
PCIe SSDs may achieve 50% market penetration, since PCIe SSDs and SATA SSDS are nearly identical in price.
SSD adoption among notebooks had already come above the 50% threshold in 2018.
Contract prices for mainstream 128/256/512GB SSDs have fallen a long way by over 50% since peaking in 2017, and prices for 512GB and 1TB SSDs may fall below $0.1 per GB by year-end.
This will stimulate demand from those seeking to replace their 500GB and 1TB HDDs. SSD adoption rate is expected to land between 60 and 65% in 2019.

If it's acknowledged they make more money on the sale of games than they do on consoles, how does a games sold for console mean they make more money than a game sold for PC? i.e. Why they heck wouldn't they come to PC, unless they don't like more copies sold?
Please note that the game is both graphics- and processor-intensive, so make sure these components meet or exceed the minimum requirements. Also note that the minimum is created with Low settings and 1080p gaming in mind and Recommended with High and 1080p.

SSD: 825GB @ 5.5 GB/s vs. 512GB @ 2.4 GB/s
For the console retarded among us which of these is which? I assume that the PS5 has the better numbers?

Bummer this a VR title. I'd love to play a modern Metal of Honor Allied Assault type game without goggles.

$400 for a full-fat console makes the $300 neutered Xbox look even worse.
Yep, undercutting your competition by 20%, THAT is aggressive pricing.
Nvidia and AMD could learn a lesson or 2 from this on the GPU front.
