GoG connect is up, as well as a sale i guess, but it doesn't matter because it's not the EPIC GAME STORE...

Hey guys, now that all the DRAMA is over for now, let's do a good old fashioned key drop. Now mind you, these are STEAM KEYS. these aren't EPIC LAUNCHER keys. I'm not opposed to buying EPIC keys, but so far there are no EPIC keys being offered in bundles and whatnot. Maybe in the future bundles will offer EPIC keys instead of STEAM keys...

I could be wrong but I don't remember Steam enforcing exclusivity on anyone.  Obviously since they're the biggest fish in the pond it really doesn't bother them but they don't try to prevent having the same games on GOG.  

no, Steam does not believe in exclusivity. in fact, with stuff like Steam direct, they're kinda the opposite. and while that doesn't matter to people like us, i KNOW it matters to people unfamiliar or just getting started with pc gaming, cuz it looks like the android or apple store. again, we don't care, but for others it's a bigger problem than exclusivity.

Here's a few:

 

- Entirely unproven.

- It's backed by Tencent

- So far they have questionable return policies (even more questionable than Valve's)

- Funding Epic supports crappy multiplayer games du-jour like Fortnite

- I really don't want to juggle half a dozen clients

- I don't buy into reasons like 'OH THEY ARE MORE HELPFUL TO CONTENT CREATORS/STREAMERS' (I don't give a rat's ass about e-panhandlers who have sadly taken over as the marketing arm for developers)

- I DON'T WANT TO BE TOLD WHERE I CAN BUY A GAME/SUPPORT THIS EXCLOOOOOOOOOOSIVE OUTLET CRAP

 

There's no reason -- other than a quick up-front cash-grab -- they couldn't have released on Epic as well as Valve and GoG at the same time.

nobody is gonna argue that, it's all perfectly valid. however, i will say that making devs/Epic out to be the bad guys does not make Steam/GoG/uplay the good guys. they're all businesses that've done shady stuff in the past. non exclusivity is fine, but rest assured all those other companies would do the exact same shit if they were in Epic's position.

Seems like Black Friday is all week these days.

 

I've also considered abandoning intel for one of these:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B41WS48/

 

https://www.amazon.c.../dp/B07B41717Z/

would it be cheaper to just upgrade your current processor vs new cpu/motherboard, or is *gasp* cost not a factor for you?

You guys said the same thing about ESO or TESO or whatever that is and here we are years later.  It's still going strong and no TESV in sight.  Fallout V in like 2022 I predict.  

Don't worry, next Elder Scrolls and Fallout will still play like trash cuz Creation Engine amirite?
