    If understand correctly Fishy it shows the two pages from what I assume is a US based webpage and what happens if you view the same page but in China.

    In other words, China bans homosexual imagery in that page which shows how wrong people are who rail against free speech. Because it impedes on the very rights they are trying to protect and proselytize.

    That would be a good point to make and I would apologize for my assumption, but I only see one image?

    Epic turning China cuck is definitely a concern, despite Sweeney's insistence otherwise.

    Oops, I confused the this with the Blizzard thread. In retrospect, I guess the point was that Epic has lgbt sales or whatever. Personally, I find RPGMAKER game sales much more offensive.

    Anyhow, here’s the screenshot I was referring to (see below). Although, it’d be interesting if someone made a comparison between the US and the China EPIC websites.

    So lesson to gamers is this - You can have sweat shops, death camps, spy on consumers, and dump a billion gallons of toxic sludge into the ocean. But you better provide us with our fag entertainment or we're protesting!

    Pretty embarrassing if you log in to the sale page and don't see most of those on ignore already...

    Maybe I should make a rainbow game. The bar seems pretty low.

    Still trying to make it about "muh features" after you clearly admitted that people would rather pirate than buy on anything that's not Steam.

    Hard to let go of Gaben's dick from your mouth.

    Explain why everyone despite having ridiculously different models of operation have the same cut.
    The answer: You can't.

    30% cut made sense when physical stores asked for ~50%.
    Since they are going way of dodo now 30% if new standard and competition looks for upseting that standard.

    I know capitalism thing is awesome. Company reinvests profits from one thing into another hoping they will succeed. Good goy fight for multibilion $ companies for their right to get 30% instead of less.

    Also it is kind of hilarious that physical stores run now 30% cut despite hiring shitload of people, care for distribution, marketing and 1000 other things while digital stores have none of that and yet cut 30% too.

    And the shopping cart argument is the best. In era of digital goods and 1click purchases you apparently need shopping cart.

    You mean in era of billion cheap pajeet coders multibillion corporation doesn't care to even implement simple qol feature?

    You can hire million pajeets to add purchases to cart by hand and still get profits, but epic is too cheap for it.

    1click buy is QOL feature. Adding another screen to my purchase is anti-thesis of QOL.

    Considering people like you they should also make queues for digital world. Or even better pay 1€ for privileged os using shopping cart and those shopping carts should be finite for full immershiun.

    Oh wait there were some idiots like that in the world. I found right company for you to hang with:

    Nigga, i was born in USSR and saw this shit in my childhood. You go to shop in one of the rare days they sell meat(in the middle of the night, because there is already lots of people waiting for opening), stand in line for few hours, get your 1,5kg meat allowed for one person and go to the end of the line to stand again for a chance to buy another 1,5 kg. And all your family in same line for more chances.

    So fuck off with your propaganda.

    Was born in communism but didn't really "live" in it.

    My father loves though to joke how he was going to buy toilet paper and had to bring plums to change for meat which then was changed to chocholate which then gave you ability to buy toilet paper from your neighbours since they were working in factory that stocked toilet paper non stop.

    Like fallout but in real life but without bottlecaps.

    Gaming is such a serious business that we have to drag cheaters in court!

    Dafuq is this shit?

    If you think someone isn't playing fair just don't invite him to play FFS. Even kids know this.

    I meant Epic, don't be daft.

    They can ban someone, temporarily or permanently, instead of going to fucking court. But maybe they didn't develop the feature yet?

    Cheating in a video game is not a crime and anyone who supports this farce deserves to be sent to mainland China

    Yes, they can ban a player in a free to play game. Very effective. I see you're an expert.
