Because we're sick of 20 different launchers 10 years later. Just like how people are getting sick of every single cable channel now starting it's own streaming service and pulling content from netflix so they can rent it to you instead because licensing isn't enough money. It's a practice that's only going to get worse and divide us further.

Life's too short to be pissed off at it. If you're really that angry, GOG Galaxy acts as a launcher for Epic, Steam, Origin, and Ubisoft.
You clearly have never used GOG launcher if you honestly believe it replaces all of them. It does not. It removes the need for nothing and does not launch any game without needing the original launcher. If it did, then every single one of these people would use it. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

The game is a flop. Just because it sold 500k copies has no bearing on if the game is good. Reviews are not good for the game as it's just another DBD ripoff made from a new IP.
LOL a flop compared to what? How about some stats: https://comparecamp.com/steam-statistics/
On average, a Steam game sells 1,500 copies on Steam and earns around $16,000 in net revenue.
On average, games priced at $10 sold 1,000 copies with net revenues of $6,000.
On average, games priced at $11-15 sold 2,000 copies with net revenues of $35,000.
On average, games priced at $16-20 sold 2,500 copies with net revenues of $55,000.
On average, games priced at +$21 sold 5,000 copies with net revenues of $200,000.
I'd say that 500000 copies is vastly better than the steam average. And when you look at the numbers, only the top AAA games will ever hit $10 million to get reduced rates, and only a game like elden ring will hit $50 million, which makes the commission structure a joke.
A financial success does not mean that a game is good. I sold over a million of an imaginary product that was completely useless to people. Does it mean that what I sold was good? No, it meant I got 1 million idiots to give me money for something.

That's a bullshit statement, Steam isn't in the business to go out and bribe developers to use their gaming platform when its already the best established gaming platform out there, Epic does this crap because they are trying to establish their gaming platform, and to just rub it in Steams face.

If Epic feels so confident in their platform, lets put it to the test and put both games on both platforms at the same time. I'm betting Steam will face roll Epic on sales. And Epic knows it which is why they do the shit they do.
would you even care if the game had flopped? bribe implies something illegal or shady. I'd venture that it was a good business deal that worked out for them. The game developer gets a guaranteed stream of income at favorable rates to a reduced audience. They get a year to iron out bugs, add DLC and then release the "full" "debugged" game to a wider audience.

I don't really get why paying Gaben all this money for years means that a person must continue to pay Gaben money for games, else they get upset because of missing non-game features. The end result any store is you click on an icon and the game launches. No console game has steam features and nobody misses them.

I find it odd that someone is complaining about nvidia linux drivers considering most people, including myself, haven't had an issue with them in the last 10 years.

Cool. Now run them under Wayland and report back your findings.
You mean beside the point it performs as good or better than ubuntu? Maybe you're just not cut out to be a linux user.

Which is far more than I can say about AMD in linux or windows, who is undoubtedly known for their absolutely shit drivers on every platform.

I stuck through a few of these "seasons" before getting bored because very little of the new content was ever actually new. They just make you re-do a string of random missions and open world objectives you've already done multiple times in the base game before unlocking the umpteenth open world assassination task, except the name on the NPC was different than before... Do that four times and your reward is to go assassinate the fifth uniquely named one, oooh!

This is what we get while they waste time developing a mobile version which will probably flop, not to mention yet another attempt at a battle royale.

That's pretty much my issue with the game. "YOU WON THE GAME... oh here is the Black Tusks... YOU BEAT THE BLACK TUSKS! oh here is another group..."
Do you think that after you break up one gang they all decide crime is bad and decide to become upstanding members of society? Not excusing the monotony of the game, just pointing out that this is how it is in the real world as well.

I find it humorous they rotated the Master Chief skin for Fortnite back into the store the same day this is announced. If you play through xbox cloud services, you get a reshade of the skin in black.

I was excited to play this until I started to play it. Maybe it ends up being better. Maybe I refund it and bail. It's not a bad game, but it's not really a $20 game either.

all the f1 games going back to 2011 were delisted and not just from steam, ps store and xbox as well.
EA bought Codemasters just over a year ago ($1.2 billion). My guess, it's just standard practice as EA withdraws the IP only to re-publish it on Origin. Then sign new distribution agreements with other platforms as per whatever EA requires.
I'm well aware of what took place, I'm just adding to info that should have also been added to the post.
Me as well, plus some speculation Smart

seems weird that they all use the same 6 games. what is the point of having 20 sites reviewing these things if they all do exactly the same thing? half of them aren't even reviews and just regurgitated benchmarks from another site. getting sick of seeing how these things perform on games I've never played or known anyone in my circle to have played them.

whatever happened to the day when reviewers benchmarked the current games and showed you how things scaled with other video cards and older generations of gpus/cpus to see if it was worth upgrading? reviewing has become, is fast, buy now.

What's funny is none of you have actually thought about the fact that they made 9 million dollars profit last year according to their own paperwork but raised 140 million dollars in 2 weeks for charity.

Just let that sink in and then come back to the conversation about being corrupt.

Wheeler dealers has been a magazine to buy used vehicles in the US since the 70's. Honestly thought it was a misprint when it said something about the UK.

Weird all around that a game from 2018 is getting dlc in 2022 using a name of a magazine from the 70's that was turned into a british television show in the 2000's instead of the 2021 version of the game.
