Just because something is a video game doesn't make it art. Can a video game be art? Sure. Are these mega corporations making art? No. They are making lowest common denominator to make the most money. It is the opposite of art.

Shame on the video game industry for not inserting itself into this very personal topic that has nothing to do with video games.

This coming from the company that is so innovative that they just said "fuck it, let's just release the old game again."

It also has a pre-trailer trailer.

DFEH Ethics Violation with EEOC

Wipper was probably fired for overseeing this ethics violation between the EEOC and the DFEH. This put the whole lawsuit in jeopardy.

I don't understand why the 2nd in line person would resign in protest. Just take over the head position and continue to do what the previous person was doing. Do it until you get fired. Resigning is a weak move. If you really cared about the outcome you would stick to it and do what you thought was right. This just looks like you are trying to bail on the situation to make a news story out of nothing.

Coinbase can cut people off from their Cryptocurrency? People are ok with that? That seems to be antithetical to the whole idea.

I think I've purchased about 6 or 7 games, plus all the freebies, so I use it all the time. If I want a game, I'll compare the price on both Steam and EGS, and many times EGS has the better price
Has that been the case for games you can buy on both storefronts, and is that the EGS discount that makes it cheaper, or is the game actually cheaper on EGS? I have to admit that EGS unlimited $10 coupons that stack on top of the existing discount are unbeatable value. I wish Steam would do this - I think they did it one time for $6CDN for one single purchase - but they could certainly compete by doing it again. Granted, EGS will stop their coupons as soon as they reach critical mass, that is, as soon as they no longer need to. Steam probably doesn't want to hand out coupons because they don't have to, they're already the most popular gaming storefront.
I still haven't bought an EGS game but I'm getting close to folding. FF7R has been out for coming on two years, and without a Playstation I've been unable to play it.
EGS can't actually make a game cheaper if it's also on Steam. Steam has an anti-competitive "Most Favored Nation" clause that they stick into all their contracts prohibiting a publisher from having a lower price on another platform. You get away with that when you're a defacto monopoly. If you want to offer a lower price to account for the lower percentage EGS takes, you can't be on Steam.

That's not true at all. All it takes is a few seconds to take a look for yourself. I just picked a random game that's on both Steam and EGS, and EGS has a sale on it for $10 cheaper.

Steam: Black Book
EGS: Black Book
Sales aren't the retail price, which you will note are the same. There's even a lawsuit, despite it being a still legal activity.
According to THR, "five gamers filed a putative class action" lawsuit against Valve because of the group's misuse of market power with the Most Favored Nation clause. This clause is found in the contracts the group makes with game developers prior to selling games.

The Most Favored Nation clause stipulates that "the game developers agree that the price of a PC game on the Steam platform will be the same price the game developers sell their PC games on other platforms." The major argument against Valve requiring this in contracts is that it leaves no room for other PC game platforms to compete or grow in the market. This creates room for Valve to continue almost have a monopoly over game sales in the PC market. With the rise of Epic Games, a relatively new platform PC players can purchase games through, the Most Favored Nation clause is becoming an issue for the free market.

However, the clause doesn't function the same way in a market that Valve dominates 75% of. The issue with Most Favored Nation clauses in different markets isn't a new one. The Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission held a workshop in 2012 debating the legality of the clause and how it should function in markets. There were discussions that dealt with companies abusing the clause to hold market value, but the Most Favored Nation clause is still a legal practice at this point in time.

Epic made the game cheaper for the consumer, and that's all we really care about. It's called competition. I found a better deal, and they get my money. That's pretty much it.

Nope. You bought the game from the wrong store. Now you will have to click on the bad icon to play it.

It's almost like AMD thinks that computer gamers are dumb enough to continually buy shitty products even though they know that they are just going to complain about them.

Can't we just skip to the part where they give us the cards for free and then when we aren't using them, AMD remotely uses them to mine for cryptocurrency for themselves? At least that way people would be able to use them for gaming.

Dude, there are a LOT of idiots. Even a lot of rich idiots. This isn't even the worst thing people have spent thousands of dollars (or more) on -- although it is near the top of the list.
Well now people are getting rich from other people watching them being idiots while they play video games.
So this makes the watchers want to get rich by being video game playing idiots.
So you end up with a bunch of rich idiots and even more poor idiots.
