99% of the time if you see an arcanum portrait you're about to read some really weird shit
99% of the time if you see a poe portrait it's rusty
Imagine in 2022 still remembering what poe was....just sad.

Who is Epic Games' audience? Who actually downloads EGS just to play a game ahead of time? Epic doesn't have enough money to afford to buy the exclusivity, is the CCP literally bankrolling exclusivity on games like [Bloodlines 2] that literally no one in China will play? Why?
I don't know if it really answers your question in this case, but I have the Epic client installed for all the free games, and I purchased Sinking City on that platform (and don't regret it) because I didn't want to wait.

Hi 幸運な虎 (Lucky Tigers),
I’m excited to announce that Bandcamp is joining Epic Games, who you may know as the makers of Fortnite and Unreal Engine, and champions for a fair and open Internet.

Hopefully Epic will find a way to screw this up in a way even normies will notice. Don't usually use Bandcamp, but there's no denying its allowed a ton of indie musicians to sell their music in a way a great deal wouldn't be able to otherwise.

Honestly, can you imagine calculating the value of games with the current falling value of the Ruble? Eventually you would have to break out the scientific notations and ain't nobody got time for that.

"Ah yes, I would like a copy of this game, here are my 4.5 x 10³ Rubles." - An absolute lunatic.

Steam seems to be doing fine with other heavily devalued currencies:

No, the thing is, with SWIFT turned off, banks under sanctions and PayPal, Visa and Mastercard suspending their operations, no digital stores would be able to operate there anyway.

Strong showing from this week's free game (Redout):

Crashes when selecting the first ship, every time. Reinstalled, turned down graphics settings, unplugged controller, nada. Also suffers from dementia and asks for Epic account integration for multiplayer on every launch.

Shame, I was in the mood for some futuristic racing...

Won't be missing much. It's not that great of a game.

Edit:
It's kind of like Wipeout but not really, and kind of like F-Zero but not really. Tries to mix and match both styles and it comes out like shit. If you expect a Wipeout clone you will be disappointed, and if you expect a F-Zero clone you will also be disappointed. The graphics are rather shit too, with this crystal like texture on everything and overabundance of post processing. Music is double shit as well and forgettable.
