    Who gives a fuck about this Facebook style nonsense.

    Now that makes more sense, thanks. Nothing I care about, but more understandable that some would.

    A lot of Steam users? I find that a weird question to ask.

    I meant on here, I know the general public eats it up. I would think the "oldfags" of the Codex would be immune to such concerns, but you're probably right and I'm naive. Gaben's Facebook style claws are in your backs, riding you to fanboy town.

    Re-Logic are the devs behind Terraria, one of the more consistently popular games of the past ten years as they still support and update it.

    I still like the UE a lot but their business practices and "recent" games are horrible, obviously.

    Well, i do have fond memories of playing Unreal, Unreal Tournament and Jazz Jackrabbit, and Fortnite, like it or not, became a huge sucess and a main factor on why Battle Royales became so popular while bringing a lot of mainstream attention.

    Still nothing i would say deserves a special award, and Epic Games Store so far is pretty much just Steam but less features and games that tries to hide that by giving free games.

    Not really seeing the huge contribution...wait, yeah, the Unreal Engine, okay, that checks out, developers have been using different versions of that engine for quite a while now, okay, i accept the Unreal Engine being a big contribution, not sure about anything else.

    What I read from this is, using Epic drove a lot of people to go directly to Uplay. Well played Ubisoft, well played

    They could've won if Grimoire was an Epic exclusive. All other efforts are futile now.

    Can't say I'm not impressed. They managed to have unreleased games on sale.

    Too bad, they can shove these discount up their arrogant ass.

    Old narrative: Epic Games are malicious saboteurs who are killing PC gaming

    New narrative: Epic Games are deep-pocketed suckers who are being bilked by publishers who never intended to release their games on Steam in the first place

    I wonder if this will happen with the Microsoft Store too.

    Damn, i wish i knew how to vote so i could put a "Funny" tag on this post, honestly, Epic wouldn't put a game like Grimoire at all, it's just too niche to be accepted, and the general consensus on the game isn't also perfect, Epic only wants games from popular Indie devs or games that already sold well like Axiom Verge.

    Yup. The big publishers that Epic's courting are just taking Epic's bribe and pocketing Epic's 12% by selling on their own store, all thanks to Epic turning off gamers.

    Next, when the bribes end, the publishers will just introduce timed exclusives on their own stores. People will have gotten used to buying from them direct thanks to Epic blocking the release from other stores. Who needs Epic?

    I mean, it's video game publishers we're talking about, some of the most evil and reviled creatures in the universe.
