    Perkel the fan of mud/earth or anything you can throw at him, trolling somebody... What is the this world coming to, sees smiles for posts ratings, infini ("funny") avatars and Scruffy as moderator... oh never mind. Too old for this shiet.

    More than Half of the people in this thread have no idea how Steam function, on user or developer side, the rest just guess. Dont worry, half of the people posting on the steam dev forums (private) are the same.

    Hey let me tell you my opinion on something i have no idea how it works. Hey pretty buttons and thumbs, oh vey!

    GG!

    :imperialscum:

    P.S. Steam is shit, Epic is even worse (till u get ze bribes and retire from a bankrupt creative industry, with small exceptionz) !

    To be fair, and disregarding all the PR speak for a minute, Borderlands is precisely the kind of game that'd be an easy sell to the Fortnite crowd. So most of the sales are likely to be to the existing Epic user base rather than people jumping ship. Basically, it does look good on paper, and it did bring Epic some monies, but how well exclusives work for genres that don't appeal to Fortnite crowd remains to be seen.

    There are reaches and there are reaches, but man that's a reach as a reply.

    Anyway I mostly just enjoy poking you guys, but as I said for months Borderlands 3 would be the real test. The fact it sold better than any Take Two game released on PC before says all that needs to be said, the vast majority don't give a shit enough to boycott games that are Epic exclusive. This should have been obvious from the get-go since tons of games not on Steam do very well, but now we have further evidence. The question is wtf Epic can do with that. Their client is so lacking in features I doubt anyone would ever opt to buy games there over any other client, except maybe the Windows Store. If they want to turn these exclusives into a sizeable market position they need to do a LOT more.

    2K. Take Two is the parent company and separate entity that also owns Rockstar Games and Private Division.

    Sure, whatever. Still impressive enough to prove the point this shit doesn't matter to the vast majority of people.

    Some wisdom for ya bros: Both steam and epic are dogshit, the only platform barely worth of buying games on is GOG cuz you can run games without any launcher. It's still dogshit since they release only cheap anime titles lately instead of proper games

    So the codex bullied you into refunding the game you liked, and now you are salty about it right

    No i refunded it before premiere because i was cheapass and found better deal. So instead of paying full price on Epic i went to CDKEYS and got like 15% off. If i was faster i could get 30% off.

    Meh, I still prefer direct game distribution download over a clumsy standalone launcher running in a background. If there was a game store that worked the same way and was also releasing major incline games, they would get my endless support and shill even if they are run by rainbow haired landwhales

    GOG's Polactcher 3 vs. STEAM's Decline-life 2 vs. EPIC's Popamolenite

    Seems like behind every game store there's a shitty overrated game :makesyouthink:

    I mean, you gave me a choice of 2 shitty zoomercore games and 1 good boomer game. What should I choose? Considering I am a 29yo boomer myself.
