Does it also scan your pc on itself without your consent?
almost certainly. most programs that interact with other programs will "scan" your pc

I guess I look st that feature list and epic has all of the stuff covered that I actually care about except for multiple controller support (depending on what that even means).

It has cloud saves, friends lists, chat, and 3rd party keys and that is the basic functionality that you need.

I feel like that list is listing a bunch of dumb stuff that doesn’t really matter just to inflate the list.

Like does anybody really care that EGS is missing badges and trading cards?

why pirate a timed exclusive instead of just waiting ???

That table was originally from ResetEra where the OP was desperate to prove Steam was the superior client :doge The initial version was more amusing since the feature list was based solely on features Steam had and excluded any features other clients/services had that Steam didn't. They also initially put 'No' on various cells which some clients/services did have. In its current form though it's a fairly worthwhile comparison.

Tbh I think some were more upset recently at Epic pulling the carpet from under the feet of games slated to be released on Steam and accepting pre-orders like Metro and some other title, which snowballed at the perfect time to create a greater unease with Epic's exclusivity agreements.

Personally I don't have much of an opinion on Epic mostly since the exclusive games don't excite me but if they improved their features more rapidly I think it might be more compelling once some titles I'm interested in come along.

Steam controllers  :lol

You don't need to use those under the Steam client. You use the same rebinding functions that the Steam controller launched with for PS4, X-box, and Nintendo controllers a la Keyboard and Mouse rebinds.

All without needing a third party driver like DS4Windows. Any game that is using the Steam controller API allows this. Something the Epic store and other clients do not have (thereby needing third party drivers).

This may be something that isn't "huge" for most folks, but it's a simple convenience.

There's also Proton support built-into the Steam client. Something Origin, Uplay, and Epic Games Store has yet to do (to support Linux folks). Meanwhile, Valve is putting money into the DXVK developers coffers to improve that which is actually helping WINE out in the long-run in regards to getting Windows apps/games onto Linux.

Oxenfree is up for grabs on EGS now.

The Witness will be the next free game in 2 weeks which is absolutely amazing as the game is the best puzzle game in history.

The free games might get me to sign up if they start getting stuff I don’t own already on multiple platforms.

Liking anime and having a big titted anime avatar is relevant in a discussion about taste in videogames, as its indicative of ones taste. It directly adresses somones tastenor lack thereof. I don't venture off topic.

If there is anything else you would like to add feel free  :-*

One could say you are the one making this ad hominem chrono, as it has nothing to do with taste in games or taste in general.

I'm not saying Rax opinion is invalid to me due to something arbitrary like having a bee allergy (or the way he communicates like you are doing now), but by account of his taste.

No, look up "ad hominem." I was attacking your logic, not your character.

You're making broad-stroke attacks on someone based on an anime avatar, which I'd normally support, except that you're positing it relates to taste in videogames as opposed to forms of passive entertainment, i.e. anime. At a stretch, I can accept that it relates to media/entertainment, but if I accept your judgement, I'd have to stand ready to defend my oglaf avatar as though it relates to my penchant for vidya, when it speaks more toward my appreciation for adult-focused sequential art.

Anyhow, cutie, know your fallacies. I'd go so far as to suggest you'd do well on TheBore to make your arguments falla-centric.

It's weird how Lager questioned Rah's tastes in games while using his avatar as an example. Rah's avatar happens to come from one of the greatest games ever made and isn't even really animu.

Having multiple digital store fronts is bad for the consumer.

.....wut?

I don't see how this is hard to understand.

Game companies can be greedy fucks. On digital streaming services we already witness properties being moved from service to service. Multiple games already have flip the script and moved from Steam when it was available for pre-order, to Epic's store. If you "buy" a game from Steam that Epic manages to coax into joining their storefront, they might have a condition that comes with "it can't be on steam". They might take their games *off* of Steam then. They already do fucked up shit with one store front. Square Enix had taken the original Sleeping Dogs completely off Steam when Definitive Edition came out to get you to buy Definitive Edition, even though the older version was better for people with old computers. If it's something that allows co-existence, something like GOG and fills its own niche, that's fine. But when it comes to competition? With digital products you "buy" (aka rent)? I bet you if you already bought a game on Steam that you do not get access to it on Epic's store.

Or it's possible (read "probable") that the new version of Sleeping Dogs has a number of error/bug fixes built into it, and they don't want to support two versions of the game, even if it's not as friendly to users of old computers. Publishers are free to revise new sales, but storefronts are usually required to keep purchased software available through the marketplace for people who have previously purchased the title. Are you saying that's not the case here?

No, it's the case. Sleeping Dogs stays in your account if you got it before, but you can only purchase the Definitive Edition now. Cindi's just upset about this currently.

I've never had a game with a major publisher revoke keys on Steam. Only some bundle garbage. One was an accident, the other was the creator having some kind of meltdown and revoking everything he had made from everywhere.
