Re: Epic Games Store thread. Stories Untold up for free. RIME next.

Stories Untold is for free now. RIME will be the next free title. I always wanted to play that :hyper

Both Stories Untold and Rime have been in so many bundles or so deeply discounted that it‘ feels really lackluster.
What‘s next Grey Goo Definitive Edition?

Fun fact Epic still has issues with UPlay integration so they can't sell Ubisoft games XD

i was considering going pc + nintendo exclusive next gen but with epic pulling shit like this fuck that, i might have to get a ps5 after all

 :thinking

exclusivo deals totes fine when you're a hardware and software platform holder though?

when they are your first party games sure
Why is that? Money's money.
I mean exclusives are cancer all around, but if you're a developer who gets offered money to be exclusive to a store, who's the consumer to say "don't do it"? Only exception is prople who crowdfunded, that's a dick move too far.

I am not sure you guys are aware, but launching the game from the Epic Launcher on PC and the GeForce Experience creates different save games and neither is accessible from the other. Very annoying.

Overcooked is fantastic, although it is better suited for 3 or 4 player couch co-op. I picked up the Switch version a while back.

Overcooked is available now.



Much more interested in the next game - Torchlight as I always wanted to play it. It's a proper and high quality Diablo clone.

Torchlight is nowhere near as engaging as Diablo.

Torchlight was really fun a decade ago. I didn't like the sequel so perhaps the original doesn't hold up well either.

I mean Path of Exile was terrific. I thought Torchlight is quality as well?

It's boring and has no atmosphere.

Torchlight came out at a time when there just weren't many ARPGs on the market, it was fun in 2009 but there's just no real reason to go back to it today. Plus, it's been heavily discounted, and maybe given away for free elsewhere at some point, many times already.

Grim Dawn, Victor Vran, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, Path of Exile...that's where it's at these days.

Ooblets going EGS exclusive with a nice condescending fuck you from the devs in case you were hoping to buy it anywhere else




Quote
Ah yes, Epic helping out those "starving artists" by scooping up a popular game already near completion; from a developer that currently has ~1200 Patreon subscribers; who had already secured a publisher (Double Fine) and then dropped them in favor of "self-publishing" eight weeks ago.
I don't blame them, as the pair probably made off with half a million dollars each, but don't expect me to buy the game - especially not after that condescending blog post.

because gametards are calling for a BOYCOTT TO PROTEST EPIC AND THESE DEVS but also i wanna play so ill use this as an excuse to pirate it that'll show em. that's not a boycott, its just resetti tier "I'm skipping the state of the union" level protesting.

i'm annoyed at this shenmue thing and plan to get a refund on my KS pledge but i'm not also going to pirate the game. i'll just move on with my life til i can get it on steam or i'll probably just forget about the game.

Not wanting to take part in fucking up the PC space by investing in buying up games to put on your storefront exclusively makes you a manbaby

Not even bother getting into all the reasons this facade they call a store is so much worse for everyone involved except Epic.



wow so much choice for the consumer!

Greedy cunt devs like this when people have supported them for years with their hard earned money when the devs were begging for Patreon supporters



Yeah Epic really is bringing value to the table here guys! Wow what an impressive display of consumer choice, freedom to play on whatever platform you choose, funding indie games from the start! They really are such a positive impact on the entire gaming market <3

you guys really are morons

Funny thing is this Ooblets game isn't even Epic exclusive. It's also an MS Play Anywhere game so it'll be on Xbox and MS Store on PC. Same as Metro Exodus was an Epic "exclusive" but also on PC MS Store and part of PC Game Pass.

Wouldn't be too surprised if this Ooblets thing ends up being PC Game Pass as well.

No, you are a man baby because of the way you absolutely freak out about it, threaten to pirate games, etc.

Simply not choosing to use EGS does not make someone a manbaby.  There are plenty of people doing that without writing multiple essays on the topic.

And trying to educate folks on it who keep saying "it's just another icon to launch games" is something a manbaby would do?

Essays? Cmon that's just hyperbole.

And what do you mean, threaten to pirate? I'll pirate anything, first to check if it even runs on my pc, and if it does and the game is good I will gladly purchase it on Steam or GOG. Some games I'll buy outright ( Like RE2 PC for instance ) without even checking to see if they work on my pc which thankfully hasn't burned me yet.

With a huge library across multiple consoles and digital storefronts, I have no issue buying games. I would have no issue with EGS if they launched games across that store and other stores. If they offered people a bigger discount on EGS because of a supposed lowered dev cut, that would have pulled me towards their platform with ease ( if it wasn't that frequently hacked ).

Agressively moneyhatting games isn't an attractive situation for me, considering what I like most about the PC platform is choice.

The store is really shit though. I mean I'm using the Windows Game Pass beta and I use Uplay and Origin and they're all kinda shitty compared to Steam (Gog Galaxy 2.0's actually pretty nice these days and closer to Steam), but they're all playable.

Epic's launcher makes all of those look better than Steam. It's soooooooo slow and featureless. I've yet to actually boot a game in though, just collecting my free titles. But navigating around to do that has been crap.
