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.

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.

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.

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.

Torchlight is pretty damn boring;  it's definitely not an ARPG you want to play through w/ different builds or endlessly level or anything like that.

Grim Dawn is peak Diablo Clone, with Titan Quest a close second (originally the same developer, but was resurrected by THQ Nordic some time back and keeps getting expansions.)

I'm assuming the Torchlight sequel will be out soon;  I played that at PAX last year and it definitely seemed like an improvement on their formula.   Usually these "free games" are advertising for soon to be released sequels so I'd expect that by this fall.

Maybe they'll put Inside this year? That's quite a bit better game than Limbo which I didn't like at all tbh. They got The Witness after all.

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.

That blog post was a bad idea, because you are describing the man children that your business depends on and they aren't going to like it, but it's still funny.

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

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.

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.

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.

The store sucks and I’d rather every game came to steam.

But that’s a lovely tactic there.  A real sign of genius.

I'm already in a world of multi-clients because of EA and Ubi, and I can wait for games to come to Steam eventually like Borderlands 3 will, plus I'll take free games anyway even if they're repeats just because the odd one is unique like City of Brass, but I really wish Epic would work on the fucking client. They update it as much as Valve does Steam (if you're in the betas) but it's mostly all on the backend. Even the web browser part of the client for the store is shitty. uPlay's come a long way but this thing is operating more like a bad Origin. Hell, I'd rather use battle.net. Why can't I show the library in a list instead of this format? Why does the "back" button not actually go back but takes you to the Store homepage? Why does it reload everything? Why are there barely any options for anything? Why does it notify you of new Unreal Engine versions if you don't have the UDK installed? What's the purpose of a lot of this when it opens it in a tab in your regular browser when you click?

Same here! Personally I understand smaller studio's wanting to get a guaranteed income.

Sadly, there are plenty of folks like me who have no intention of ever buying anything from the EGS. And by doing so, I might miss their next game and Epic will probably not give them a guaranteed income a second time?

But I'd have way more respect for some of these devs if they do it like Double Fine did it.



They wanted to give us money, so we said yes. That's it! You don't need to shit on people who have no desire to use the EGS! You don't have to be a condescending prick talking down to folks who have no intention to use the store! You don't need to shit on folks who live in a country where the EGS is screwing you on currency.

Ooblets looks like a sweet and cute game. If it ever comes to Steam I'll probably still pick it up.

This is one of the most legitimate complaints about all this, along with promised Steam keys/pre-orders being canceled. The client is shit/hilariously barebones, but they'll get to it, some day...
Yeah, some devs are going to be defiant about their decision to go Epic exclusive or pretend it's not about the money to save face (?). Yet the conniptions people are having about this are embarrassing to me. Respect my authority as a customer? Chinese spy-store? Punish the devs who take the money? Pirate to show them what's for! Tim Sweeney wants to destroy PC gaming? It's all REEEEEEE to me.
