You may want to bone up on hyperbole, jokes, satire and Poe's Law.

The thing is, I can never tell if you are joking when you fall all over yourself praising Epic.

Eh, I gave up on hating epic. I won't be a customer of theirs ever, but there is room for another store.

Thank Capitalism for loopholes to hide huge sums of cash, for arrogant self-serving delusional assholes. Otherwise that money might end up in the public's pocketbook and be spend on useless things like food, health care, education and making the world a better place. Middlefinger Flamethrower

Even though I am not a fan of how Epic is building their store, we can dispense with that right now. This is cash they earned through their business, they didn't take it out of anyone's monetary pool that might fund the stuff you listed. It wasn't like someone was sitting at their computer going "Hmm, I could send this money to the needy or I could buy something on Fortnite. What to do?"

News Comments > Tim Sweeney on EGS' Impact
21. Re: Tim Sweeney on EGS' Impact Jun 26, 2019, 14:22 Mordhaus
 
And let's all remember, the money that Epic is using to fund this expedition are from the vanity sales in a game mode they pretty much ripped off from pubg.

Fortnite was a struggling zombie survival game when PUBG was released "early access" in March 2017. PUBG quickly became the most popular PC game in the world and most popular game ever on Twitch at the time.

September 2017: Fortnite introduced a new game mode, Battle Royale, based on PUBG's format: 100 players, airship over the map, play zones that get smaller, crate drops, medkits and bandages, squad members getting "knocked out", etc.

Today: Tweets explaining how copying something is better for all of us...

Almost every gaming company has to be salivating profusely over Stadia and it's competitors. For the same reason that they have been pushing downloading games vs buying the game on media.

You can't trade in a download. You might be able to do a limited share to a friend, but you don't actually own the game. You rented it like most online only games are 'purchased'.

No more gamestop, no more pawnshops or craigslist ads, gaming companies own your contact with the game. They have been doing their best to bring something like this about for YEARS. Like DLC that can only be ran on the original registered copy, not the resold one. Blocking online functions if you aren't the original tagged owner. Pushing to move games to the 'games as a service' model.

The first thing to remember is that if gaming news makes corporate suits super happy, it means that it most always is in their benefit vs yours. You are simply a sponge that they want to wring every drop from.

Probably less chance to put in microtransactions when it would just be an FPS with some multiplayer.

Unfortunately, every game company now wants the multiplayer moba or fps with the capability to sell skins and other fluff.

News Comments > Iron Maiden Sues Over Ion Maiden Infringement

3D Realms Ion Maiden Statement
MAY 30 @ 2:32AM - FREDERIK SCHREIBER
We’ve recently heard about a lawsuit filed in California by the band Iron Maiden, claiming our old-school first-person shooter Ion Maiden is infringing on their trademark.

From what we’ve heard, the suit claims our main character, Shelly Harrison, originally debuting in 2016’s Bombshell, is based on their musician Steve Harris; our skull bomb icon found in-game is based on their skeleton mascot Eddie; our logo in itself is based on theirs; and other frivolous claims anyone who has played Ion Maiden would find more over the top than Shelly’s “Loverboy”, her signature 18-round triple-barreled revolver.

We at 3D Realms, our co-publishers 1C Entertainment, and developer Voidpoint will review our options once we receive official notice of the lawsuit and will make any necessary decisions at the appropriate time.

Regardless, everyone continues to work diligently on Ion Maiden to deliver the best possible experience later this year.

I've even posted a while back calling him out as a corporate shill.

You do have to realize this hyberbole is actually what invalidates your argument, though... I hope...
It's true. I'm a shill and a well paid one at that. Every-time I post in favor of EGS i get $379, weird number but I'll take it. Some words even act as multipliers, so if I use monopoly in a sentence it's 2x $379, tribalism is worth 3x and so on. It adds up fast. Now I know you have questions on what happens if I use more than one bonus word per post, and sadly the answer is it is not additive .
But anywho I made so much money last week my bank called and said I would have to open up another account because my current one was full.
Before long I'll have to double Irish with a Dutch sandwich.


Sarcasm will not hide the fact that if there is an EGS related post, you will be on it like a starving person in front of a Golden Corral buffet. You will bash steam, praise egs, pontificate about how it is GOOD for us that egs is bringing a very console like approach to the PC, and generally use every rationale you can to make it seem like egs is the SAVIOR of gaming by challenging that nasty steam 'monopoly'.

You will ignore logic, ignore posts that call out the fact that while epic has said they will quit doing exclusives once they catch up they never have said what quantifies being 'caught up'. You will ignore the fact that Tim Sweeney has said from his own twitter that epic most likely will not be able to keep the 12% rate for good, as it is not sustainable as the store grows and they add features.

As I stated, you might not be a shill, but you sure as fuck act like one. Either that or you are a fanboi of 'epic' proportions.

You know redEye, your as confusing as you always are. Steam is not a monopoly, they are who they were in the beginning they were the ONLY ones offering games on a platform that most everyone loves. So your comments like this are so fucking baffling.

As I said before, even after a lot of us tend to have started to ignore EGS, you can bet you will find a redeye post on almost ANY news regarding epic or egs. It's reached the point of being laughable , I've even posted a while back calling him out as a corporate shill.

As a singleplayer only guy who runs Steam in offline mode with the in-game interface off, I literally couldn't care less what store I buy games from. Some nice deals here, especially on Outward and some pre-orders I was looking at. Will do some research. Very nice that the $10 off comes from Epic and not the devs/pubs.

You should care. Rewarding anti-consumer companies is bad for all of us. It's like saying you don't care you pollute.
They gotta get customers in the door. I don't like exclusivity, but if it helps them get on their feet, and they cut it out after they are established...
Exactly this.
They are going up against one of the biggest monopolies in the business.
There is no harm created by the short term exclusives and it is about the only way they can get a foot in the door.

snippet from https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1107671681517211649.html
"When a competing company goes out and builds a massive financial war chest, it's for one thing - and one thing only. Going to war in a highly competitive battleground.
In this case, the war is with Steam.
A war in which, by all accounts, they stand ZERO chance of EVER winning

This was never about beating Steam. It's about disrupting it enough to carve out a portion of a multi-billion Dollar industry. Starving Steam of content isn't going to kill it. In fact, it's akin to Disney pulling Marvel content off Netflix. They'll survive it.
But even as you ponder paying Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, DCU, CBS et al monthly subs to watch exclusive content, so too gamers are busy raging about having to install another game launcher. Because, you know, priorities and all that.
There is absolutely NOTHING unique about the Steam v EGS fiasco because that's how competition works. And no matter how many times Tim Sweeney has to go on the record outlining *precisely* what their goal is, very few care because of tribalism."

And thankfully for them, there will be tons of corporate shill apologists like you that will keep saying "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!"

From the beginning you have been so hard on their jock I'm surprised they haven't proposed to you. Epic is only concerned about life after fortnite, since it is pretty clear they can't create a game anymore without ripping off 99% of the concept from someone else (pubg). They care nothing about the consumer or the developers.

The developers don't care either, they just want to cause valve headaches so they can break people away to their stores where they can shovel overpriced DLC to the consumer without splitting costs with another store. They WANT exclusives, they want games as a 'service', or any other method of wringing the most profit from the least amount of content.

Steam and Valve are not innocent either, but at least they fostered a space for independent devs to get games widely seen that would have never had that opportunity without them. Epic has done nothing like that and, before you regurgitate your most common reprise of "EGS will do the same once they have enough money to build a proper store etc ad nauseum", I would be quite willing to wager they never will. In fact, I would also be willing to wager that once they do carve out a space for themselves they will raise the percentage they charge devs, using the excuse that they can't sustain egs and development of the store at the price percentage they originally offered.

tl;dr

You are just as bad as the steam fanbois, only you rep for EGS. If you can't see that, I don't know how to explain it to you.
