  1. So you're a nVidia shill too lol I'm well aware of that. Doesn't mean I have to give them my money if they don't give me what I want. So have you not seen all the reasons why people don't want to use the Epic game store? Some of them have been detailed in this very thread. Gearbox putting heart into anything? Making a lot of assumptions. Nobody was surprised. Everybody expected this. We know who Gearbox and 2K are, and we know how they deal.
  2. I have no particular loyalty to VALVe, but I have no reason to think they're dishonest when they say that if the service shuts down you at least have some of measure that you'll still have your games. How they'll manage that, I don't know, but I have a good deal bit more faith that they'll stand behind tat statement if the time were to come than Epic games. I can't say that I have that faith for many other digital distribution services, aside from GoG, certainly not with Epic Games. You're doing a lot of apologetics for shady companies that are actively participating in anti-consumer behavior, which basically amounts to "I don't see it as a big deal because everyone else does it and Steam isn't even that great anyways". It's not really a compelling argument that fails to even try to empathize with the points that PC users are making.
  3. That's fine. If they want to treat me like shit, then I'm not going to give them money, and hopefully they consider lol. I mean, you operate on the assumption that I have to give them anything. I said multiple times, I got way better games that I'm looking forward to that don't treat me like shit.
  4. The entire thesis of PC gaming is having an unlimited amount of freedom to do whatever it is you want to do with your games. It's about having freedom and options. It's about having whatever hardware it is you want, about what features and performance you want to have in your games, and what you do with those games. This is why PC gaming is the very bleeding edge of gaming. And ideally too, we'd be able to get whatever software we want. Exclusivity deals are by their nature anti-competitive and restrictive. If I wanted to buy whatever retarded deluxe edition of Borderlands 3, why should I have to use Epic's crappy spyware infested barely functional garbage? Why can't I get it on Steam or GoG? Why can't I just buy games wherever I want. And the answer is simple. There's companies like 2K and Gearbox just want more money, consumer be damned. 2K and Gearbox want a bigger cut, and want consumers like me to deal with an inferior service to get it. If that's the stance they're going to take, then they can bite me. I can get better games on GoG.
  5. Aside from it being spyware, and Epic being owned by a shady Chinese corporation, Epic's launcher is unbelievably barebones and lacks a ton of core feature (it doesn't have a fucking shopping cart of all things. A shopping cart.) Steam's not perfect by any metric, but it comes with a litany of social and auxiliary functions that make it as desirable as it is. While I think that everybody's loyalty to VALVe is entirely misplaced, it is by far the best platform on PC and there is absolutely nothing that Epic does that it doesn't. In short, these companies are making you deal with a worse service with no end benefit to the customer. And for what? Is Borderlands seriously that good guys? Because I don't see it. It's not bad, mind you, it's one of the better looter shooters I've played. It's miles ahead of garbage like Anthem. But is it worth supporting a company that frequently is wrist deep into bullshit? I just don't fucking see it, not when we have a plethora of other games coming this year that are going to be far better than this thing will ever be. If I can wait a year for Outer Worlds and Metro: Exodus, I can sure as fuck wait on this one.
  6. I honestly really don't understand what SEGA's rhetoric when it comes to rereleasing games. I don't think it's even the controversy, because I mean, Sonic Lost World got released on Steam, and that was right when opinions against it were at its most sour. Meanwhile, people have been begging for a Unleashed PC port for how long now and SEGA just doesn't feel like it I guess. Truly a baffling company at times.
  7. I like how Borderlands 3 gets announced and everyone forgets about the scumfuckery that Gearbox has been involved in for the past 10 years.

      Ummm...no? Most of us are aware of that, it’s just nice to see gearbox for once, hopefully, not fuck up with a franchise that shouldn’t be that hard to not fuck up. Looks like a promising game. No ones clearing randy pitchfords record suddenly.

      This assumption is the equivalent of assuming people forgot about ea being shit, because they enjoyed Apex.

      "For once"

      Yeah, we'll see how that goes.

  8. Because what I really want when I'm playing a fast paced first person shooter is latency from streaming it from a machine that's untold miles away using American internet. Also, using a controller. 🙄
  9. Oof. Honestly, I just don't have any expectations for this year. Team Sonic Racing is the big release this year, and I really doubt we're going to hear any new Sonic Team productions for a while.
  10. Whoo boy, can't wait to buy the same games I bought a billion different times before, at a ridiculous premium, that I can just go and download off the internet for free.
  11. They literally tried this before, and it resulted in Other M. I have no idea what kind of clusterfuck Prime 4 was gonna be, but I'm sure it was going to be a messy one that Nintendo felt the need to just scrap the whole thing entirely. I am surprised that they're going back to Retro though, because by all accounts pretty much the vast majority of the Metroid Prime talent left at the end of the release of the Metroid Prime Trilogy. My chief fear with it going back to Retro though, is that we'll ultimately get the same sort of issues that was manifesting in the series at the time, and that was generally that the franchise was becoming too safe. It's a bit of a precarious situation right now imo.
  12. Am listening to the Lucario and the Mystery of Mew soundtrack. I finally saw it last week when Twitch was showing it, and I'm really surprised at how good the soundtrack is.
  13. So, I don't know if this is by accident but they're playing Lucario and the Mystery of Mew on Twitch right now.

  14. Let's be honest here though. The reason why this happened to Telltale is because they saturated the market with their own games. It's exactly what happened to Sierra Entertainment, only I don't think Telltale will have near the same cultural impact.
