He’s the asshole?
No one should be forced to use what they find to be a less competent process to play a game
Their feature set is half baked. I have to use Google to search their forums effectlively. And often find better information on Reddit while doing it. And their communication is terrible.
But I am not concerned only with the consumer side, and not even the dev side, there are also contributors. I find it concerning…
Because despite Steam’s dominance within the PC market, I’m not to sure if they ever negotiated exclusive deals with 3rd party IPs?
Discord launches store, Valve adds Discord like features to Steam chat. Industry is alerted to Epic’s store launch and better developer cut, one week before launch Valve anounces better developer cut. Epic anounces roadmap for features gamers want the store/launcher to have, Valve begin to speak up that they are bad…
I would feel substantially less angry if they made any kind of attempt to build a decent service before just taking the easy road and writing a bunch of checks.
Here’s the issue.
You know Steam has leaked all that info as well but you’re defending them as though when they leak your info it’s fine but when Epic does, it isn’t?
agreed! My thought comes from how we use it in gaming - up until the epic games store it has solely been used to denote exclusive to platforms - PC/PS/Xbox/Switch/DS/Vita/etc. and now everyone seems to be using it the exact same way, with no explanation of difference, for the epic store. Like I never heard anyone say…
Features can be worked on.
“Out, out damned microtransactions!”
“Alas, poor Bethesda--I knew them, Horatio. A developer of infinite quests, until this shit fell from their nethers.”
You can’t preemptively assume most people are kind & good hearted without assuming most people might very well be the opposite. That’s just foolish.
He has a right to spend his money as he pleases but he doesn't have a "right" to like the things he pays for. If he's buying games he doesn't like playing, whose problem is that?
Buying a game on launch day isn’t a “right”. He can simply wait.

If you feel like games are cheaper and better a year later, maybe stop buying them the day they come out?
