One of these game launchers having Dropbox's LAN sync for the game files would be pretty hot. Especially Steam because my laptop is on Linux.

Have you tried it on a different machine?

Never had these issues;  itís just featureless lol

Would trying it on another computer fix this issue, even assuming for a moment that benji has more than one gaming pc?

Yes?  Could be some other software conflict, a busted installation (that a reinstall might not fix), etc.

I mean EGS sucks it could just be widespread bugs but Iíve never seen them personally.

Next set of games are Metro 2033 Redux and Everything.

IIRC, both the Metro Redux's being free games were leaked back when the exclusive thing came around.

everything is a game i've been dying to play since i've discovered it but it has never been on fucking sale, or at least not when i've looked. i adore david o'reilly's work and feel almost guilty that i'll be getting it for free though i'm sure epic paid him a good amount

High Key. I think it's best from a gameplay standpoint, had the best enemy encounters etc. I liked the story too. City only edges it out as the best overall because City had some great set pieces and moments. Asylum is nice because it feels focused but the last third sucks. Knight is a gorgeous looking game that does way too much. Funny enough the Batgirl DLC is the exact kinda focused experience I think they were great at and need to return to for a full fledged game. The games are at their best when they playout like an intense, slightly scary TAS two parter.

Half the free games I have from EGS, after downloading and installing, I then have to download and install a separate client from the publisher, and then download and install the game again from that client.

I've still been grabbing most of them.

Don't think I've played a single one  :doge


Only game I've ever played on EGS was Control. And of course in the sales they won't put the season pass on sale even though they do on PS4.

I think I've only played the games I actually paid money for, but I wouldn't have purchased those if Epic hadn't lured me to the store with free offers. I joined for FTL, but haven't even fired that up yet.

Öoh, looks like I played Innerspace for an hour. That was OK. Keep meaning to revisit it.

Good timing bump. They just announced Remnant From the Ashes is free next week on the 13th along with Total War: Troy for just that one day.

Biggest gets they've had in a while.

I really, really liked Where the Water Tastes like Wine. It was a huge flop and actually had a moderate budget for an indie project (they got Sting to voice hours and hours of dialogue + 16 writers and various artists).

It's a total mess of a "game", it's slow and if you try to "beat" you'll spend over 30+ hours. Better to just play what you feel like until you are good.

But as an otherworldy journey through the soul of past-time America it's probably the best game I've ever played to give that feel. Also the soundtrack is amazing. It's one of those games that I'm so glad exists even if it's not really a good game.

Very good read on it:

Commercially, itís a disaster. I canít discuss exact numbers, but in the first few weeks fewer people bought the game than I have Twitter followers, and I donít have a lot of Twitter followers (and this tells you a lot about how effective marketing via Twitter is).

So far, I have made $0 from the game. That may look like a high number, but consider that it took four years to make ó that works out to approximately $0/year. Compared to the $120,000+/year salary of a 15-year veteran in a AAA studio, it begins to look a lot smaller! And then if I go into the hourly breakdownÖ I donít have an actual count of hours spent making the game, but there was a lot of crunch that went into it, so I am guesstimating I made about $0/hour. Thatís not a lot! And then once you factor in the ~$140,000 I spent paying my contractors and collaborators for the game, you begin to see that maybe it wasnít, financially speaking, worth it. I guess I will have to wait a bit longer to buy that Juicero.

Joking aside ó thatís dismal. And terrifying. At the end of the day itís astounding that a game that got this much attention from the press, that won awards, that had an all-star cast of writers and performers, that had a bizarre celebrity guest appearance(!) failed this hard. It scares me.

I am going to be OK, at least for the moment. I donít own a house, so I didnít mortgage it to ship this game (being a millennial pays off!). Iím only responsible for myself, and I didnít spend the last of my savings, plus I have marketable skills that I can hopefully use to keep myself fed in the future. Iím glad that I got to pay so many talented people for their skills, and that there were only a few folks getting paid through revenue share (there were a few, and I feel terrible about that). I am also very glad that many of the people who worked on this game are already using that fact and their experience to find other work with teams ó if everyone else who worked on this ended up better for doing so, thatís a great reason to have made it.

i played a bit of it before it left gamepass and it was kind of interesting, but nothing I would really want to pay for. the walking speed seemed annoying.

I had read that postmortem before, glad maybe he is getting a little money for it finally.

I don't know about great as I think as the game went on it clearly did'nt know what to do with combat. It did'nt really want to be a shooter, but the stealth is also pretty meh. So I ended up having to just kind of brute force my way through. That said the game does still have a really nice vibe and San Fran is such a well realized place and great to be in. The characters are surprisingly pretty fun. There's not a lot of GTA 3 Urban city open world games now so WD2 is a good game to scratch that itch. It also does not feel like Ubisoft open world tedium. So I liked it.

Well, fuck me.

I got in on Alien Isolation at the big giveaway, but failed to hit the final button on Metro 2033 Redux. I own Metro on 360 though, so I'm not really out. Just felt dumb.

INSIDE is today's game for a few more hours.
