My biggest complaint is that, from what I had read, being on EGS was less expensive to a developer. As such, that could result in this savings on the developers part being passed on to the consumer as a cheaper game.
Same thing that was said when Steam launched, games would be cheaper since they wouldn't involve all the money needing to be spent on getting a game into a store as a physical copy, and yet it never happened due to the need to maintain price parity with the physical copy in the store, or risk losing the box sales in store.
And here Borderlands 3 is, nice payoff to the developer, apparently a discount for using UE4 and releasing on EGS store exclusively, on top of the lower fees to be there than on steam, along with no need to meet price parity with a physical store copy, and yet the game is no cheaper than any other version. No savings passed on to the consumer.

Homeworld: Cataclysm, Homeworld, Homeworld 2
My order of best to worst. Personally, I really hated how much some of the lore was changed from Homeworld to Homeworld 2, and how Cataclysm and some of it's innovations were ignored. Also hated the constant, rushed feel of Homeworld 2, compared to the other two, where it could be frantic, then you'd get a slight break at the end of the level before diving in again. If Homeworld 3 follows immediately after Homeworld 2, and keeps that same frantic pace, I might take a pass.

I remember when Steam was going to cause game prices to go down, and when it didn't, it was because "games on Steam can't be a lower price than the store or the store won't carry the game" or something like that.

The Outer Worlds trailer has the STEAM logo at the end sans the EGS logo.

Where do you see The Outer Worlds on the list of exclusives?

Hint: It's not on there. It's apparently only coming to the EGS but not as an exclusive.

https://twitter.com/OuterWorlds?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor

Or, from the tweet:

"Our partners at @EpicGames have announced that #TheOuterWorlds will be coming to the Epic Games Store at launch, alongside the Windows Store. It will be released on other digital platforms 12 months later. The Outer Worlds will still release on XBOX and PS4 on launch."

So, exclusive for 12 months.

What I love is going on youtube and looking up videos of people who love "classic wow" and to prove how much better it is, they post videos of the old version of the world, giving you a guided tour using their "vanilla" level 255 Human Warrior/Druid hybrid with a mount from Mists running at 300% ground speed, while wearing armor and weapons from 3 different expansions, and having "vanilla" skill trees that technically never existed, even if the skills on them did.
Yeah. Vanilla.

I read online once that the show was written like a bunch of jocks got together and wrote a show about how they thought nerds would be.
After watching a few episodes, I kinda understood how they would think that.
Never got into it, didn't care much for the characters.

Vast minority? 8 million sales versus 7 billion people on the planet. You need to redo the math.

Math begins with correctly identifying the numbers you're doing the math to. Rolleyes

Ok there are several hundred million gamers on the planet. So that still means the vast majority don't care about it or think it's crap.

There have been around 111+ million consoles sold that can play the game, if they're all still functional and in use, so do the opinions of several hundred million gamers who can't play it really matter?

Looks like they followed through on their promise of giving it to free to anyone who bought the partial version of the game released a few years back, since it's in my library. Wonder if I get the beta too then?

I'm getting tired of seeing "woke" on the internet. What was once a word meaning "aware of what is going on" now just means "paranoid conspiracy theorist who believes in ridiculous, unbelievable things."

Considering that they're the company that supposedly made a nude model of Ellen Page without her consent, and put it in the game Beyond Two Souls (even thought it was only accessible via developer console), I can kinda believe the accusations.

As a refresher:
Ellen Paige explored legal action

My biggest issue was that it was a bit too rushed. Personally, I think it would have worked a bit better as maybe a 5 part, hour long per episode miniseries. That would have given them a bit more time to build up some backstory for the characters and events in the movie. I am looking forward to part 2, though.

Like every PC game Double Fine put out though, they just randomly stopped patching it. Still has a couple of visual and other bugs they were "going to fix" but poof, didn't.

As far as I can tell, the new UT is both modable and free, and yet I hear next to nothing about it on here or elsewhere. I keep hearing over and over that if a great, modable game came out, people would be all over it, and the original UT was what I consider one of the greats in that area. Is the new one just that bad or user unfriendly?

We’ve pushed far past the technological boundaries that were previously considered impossible to build the foundation of the Star Citizen universe. Working on 3.0 has certainly introduced variables and challenges that we could never have anticipated, and these just do not always cater to a tidy date on a calendar.

Just reading this as one sentence, without really thinking too hard as you read, it almost seems like they're saying the foundation of Star Citizen was impossible due to technological boundaries, at least until 3.0 came along . . . which would mean they were promising the impossible up until now?

Watched the video on the website . . . looks like a different artist might have designed Fury, she doesn't quite match up with War or Death, stylistically.

2 was great, like a more arcadey GTA 4.. but man it ran like complete and utter ass on PC. I think it's one of the worst ports I've played on PC...

Ran like shit on my XP machine years ago. Runs smooth as butter under windows 7 though. At least the 64bit one.

My 2 cents. I glance at the score on Steam to get a sense of what the majority thinks. Then I read the reviews, and base a purchase on them, not the score. If I see a dozens of "Thes ar uh bad gaem, dno't bye it, teh devloper sukcs" and a few "this game is good, but with flaws, let me lay them out for you" then I go with the second type as my guide, so doing this has no real impact on how I pick to buy a game or not.
