can’t speak for anyone else, but I think we all use it the same way everybody does right now: to play a few specific games we can only play on epic. otherwise, it’s way too barebones to be anyone’s go-to pc gaming store right now

I’m post-timeskip now, but I still haven’t made up my mind. it’s gonna be either edelgard or dorothea, but I like both a lot! choices are hard. it’s just so difficult being a cool and beloved-by-everybody professor, you know?
