Outer Worlds isn't confirmed yet tho right?

If so, they can expect exactly 0 euro's from my side of things.

Not really, but it is if they feature their own exclusive titles that aren't available elsewhere, stuck in a launcher missing even the most basic options for devs and consumers alike.

Fuck Obsidian then, I have always enjoyed their games a lot, but fuck this.

I won't purchase any of these games, unless its on Steam in a DEEP DEEP sale. Till then I will just pirate their games instead.

Did you miss PS4's Detroit on the list?

Ofcourse I'm mad, why wouldn't you be? EGS is a terrible anti consumer, anti dev launcher. It's absolute trash. This is a terrible way for the PC market to develop. It's dogshit.

Fuck these developers, I thought they cared about their loyal fanbase. Guess they don't give a fuuuuuck. So yeah I'll pirate their games instead. Fuck em, they don't need my money apparantly.

Nothing wrong with launching on all PC distribution platforms at the same time. Maybe put a discount on the EGS version to let people trickle in there? But nahh, let's just buy up the right to sell this game for a year.

It's like only Wallmart can carry the latest Call of Duty game. It's fucking bullshit.

For the Quantic Dream games, they’re only coming to PC because of Epic funding the ports. I can’t really understand people having an issue with the exclusivity for them (it’s also not permanent, only one year).

Yeah games go cheap fast and i dont have time to play them as it is, but if the only storefront was epic's or steam's, id probably have a different view.
Also the sims and its 300 Ikea packs for 9$ each, makes a good case for it.

Having to launch an ENTIRELY SEPARATE APP is annoying.

My initial reaction to seeing Outer Worlds up there was annoyance, but it's either that or play it on my PS4, so I guess I'll install this dumb thing for that.

I'm not going to bullshit you with some wacky Tencent or spyware conspiracy theories.  Simply put: I'm already entrenched in Steam and don't want to move to another platform.  I get what Epic is doing and don't fault them for trying to expand their marketshare, but I don't like what they're doing.

Also Tim Sweeney comes off as a bit of a cunt and I don't like him.

I am not super annoyed, but liked having everything in one place. It's easier than switching from different consoles I guess.

May as well get in on the store close to ground level while they still give a shit if you are there or not. They have been giving away decent games for free.

So you're going to pirate the game and still give them free advertising and word of mouth by playing it and discussing it on the internet, leading to further sales for them on EGS? You're still part of the problem by playing it in the first place.

Great little game. The only bad thing I could say about it:
-bad combat with werewolves

The gunplay is satisfying, the visuals amazing, setting is great and the story is alright.

Honestly only people not liking it are scrubs who think its bad value, well guess what, just buy it, play it, sell it, I paid like 15 bucks to experience this and it was more then worth it. Solid 8/10

Honestly, most of those games seem like probable ass (outer worlds from over-the-hill Obsidian and control from over-the-hill Remedy) or are known, old ass (the shitty David cage games and the Ubisoft stuff)

And before I catch shit for it, I don't understand the hype for outer worlds..at all. "Obsidian" doesn't make good rpgs. Writers, designers, and directors do, and the people responsible for just about everything that's regarded as a classic (kotor 2, new vegas, alpha protocol if I'm being nice) from the company in the past 15 years either left the company or chained themselves to the sinking pillars of eternity ship. Tim Cain's work on Fallout can't be understated, but that was a long, long time ago and a shooter rpg is an entirely different beast than a crpg from 20 years ago. The "Obsidian name" brought us dungeon siege 3. They aren't immune to releasing crap.

Having multiple digital store fronts is bad for the consumer.

I'm really not sure why I'm supposed to be upset about this. I already have to boot up origin and bnet for their exclusives. Being split across several stores and launchers was already what I was dealing with. This isn't any more or less anti consumer than it already is to me and the freakouts over the epic store just remind me of origins starting days. Just because I had mass effect 1 and 2 on steam and mass effect 3 suddenly had to be bought on origin did not destroy my experience as a pc gamer.
