There are no laws that state you have to hand over yout entire library and all you serve for, over to the compeition in the video games industry.

EA has to work fucking hard
Ubisoft has to work fucking hard.
Bethesda has to work fucking hard.
Blizzard has to work fucking hard.

GoG is the only one out there that works semi hard. The rest care only about what they own or publish, that's simply how it is, EA doesn't give a fuck about you, neither does ubisoft, Activision, Blizzard or anyone else. Not even Valve.

There has never been a company on this earth, that has given a shit about your daily life, that holds little meaning to the 7+ billion people inhabiting this planet.

Valve has done some good and bad towards the industry. The very good parts were supporting modding and allowing for fan made content. The bad was letting asset flippers onto the store.

GoG and Steam have done free games before, EA and Ubisoft had to follow this routine for face being judged, but I'll judge them anyway because they forced themselves to do it, not because they give a shit. Look at Ubisoft when they called PC gamers pirates and to this day, they still love stacking on piles of DRM. look at EA and their killing of known PC franchises and tossing MT's into their games, fucking disgusting tripe.

Bethesda doesn't even know what the fuck it wants to do with it's own client and storefront. Blizzard only cares about it's own gig, nothing more.

You want competition, I'll say it one more time. The competition has to GIVE A FUCK, and actually WORK HARD to obtain what consumers want.

Stop with the commy "ugh, the top dog should hand out all they've earned fair and square to competition, it's only fair". We live in a capitalist society. EA and co have billions of their own, you tell them how to spend it.

I think Valve will get shat on regardless of what they do. Like they removed 150-200 "fake" games from steam and no one cared...

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-09-27-valve-removes-over-150-fake-games-from-steam

They remove one game with questionable material based on their investigation on the actions of the developer and everyone is like derp, Valve is terrible. It's like wtf...

Like k, I don't agree with the decision of removing the game but here's the thing. What do people think will happen if Valve starts curating their store seriously? When you have curators, games will be subjective af. If a Curator thinks something is meant for "pedos" and shouldn't be on steam, it will either be removed or not allowed on steam in the first place. But what will people's reaction is gonna be? Boo Valve!

On the other end, if they don't curate, guess what's people's reaction is gonna be? Boo Valve! It's laughable honestly.

That is bullcrap. There is something as an objective minimum standard a game should fulfill before being sold as such. That has nothing to do with subjectivity. If a game is too unfinished to be sold it's not a problem if Valve's curators deny it. They can just come back when there actually is a game with content and at least some kind of polish. Which they of course won't because crap games will always stay crap games. You can instantly see if a game was made by a competent developer or someone who just wants to make a quick buck.

Removing 200 fake games from Steam is what's laughable. First of all, how did they get there in the first place? Are you really commending Valve for cleaning up some of the shit they themselves let on their storefront? And 200 is nothing against the thousands of trash games on the store. They fucking let games on their store that don't even have a fucking working executable file.

Only 10 people would be enough to check the vast majority of new games on steam for a minimum level of quality. Valve has enough money to hire hundreds if not thousands of curators to do that job, but they won't even spend money on one and just let everything on their store by default.

The only time Valve does something is if it threatens bad PR on a large scale. For example games that could be perceived as pedo bait. Valve doesn't care about quality or protecting customers, they only care about raking in the maximum amount of money. They only did something against the gambling on their store when it developed into a news story.

So no, fuck Valve. I won't give them any credit for doing the right thing only when their marketing department forces them to do it. It's deplorable.

" There is something as an objective minimum standard a game should fulfill before being sold as such. That has nothing to do with subjectivity. If a game is too unfinished to be sold it's not a problem if Valve's curators deny it."

That's already subjective... What constitutes as a game that is too unfinished since that will vary from person to person. Some people think that any game that has a bug is considered unfinished while other people are fine if a game has tons of bugs and glitches. Looks at PUGB, granted it is an Early Access game but it goes to show how many people are perfectly fine playing buggy games.

Yea Valve let them in but I am commending the fact that they are doing something about it. Valve is in a position where they don't have to do anything about it yet they are taking steps to make their store front better. We have already seen many companies that are in a similar position as Valve do virtually nothing about their store front or even remotely Listen to their customers. Valve is at least trying to revamp their store and trying to listen to their customers and revamping is gonna take sometime to do so. I am not saying Valve is perfect but bashing their every move with negativity is just nonsense imo.

Minimum level of quality is again, very subjective... We have seen some really bad games make it onto just about any platform. Just google top worst games on psn/xbox/nintendo and you will see games that are just as bad as the ones on steam. Granted at a much lower scale but the point is, curation isn't the end all solution...

That sounds like every company tbh... To me, Valve with Steam seems to at least have better intentions for their customers compared to a lot of other companies... Most other companies that have store fronts don't even have all the features that steam has regardless of how many times the features have been requested. People want refund systems for Psn/xbl/Eshop, people want user reviews and family sharing and cloud storage per game basis and etc but is Sony/MS/Nintendo listening? Not really... Even on the PC field, I don't see other store fronts offering Family Sharing and etc like Steam does. Yea they have some features that steam has like a refund system and sometimes cloud saves but not the rest.

Also there are some pedo-sh games on steam so...

http://store.steampowered.com/app/417110/Mayjasmine_Episode01__What_is_God/

I am not saying Valve is like the most perfect company in the world but if people are gonna criticize Valve on their faults, they should also praise when Valve does something good or fixes their mistake... Otherwise, it's just a hate train and nothing more...

Stop with the commy "ugh, the top dog should hand out all they've earned fair and square to competition, it's only fair". We live in a capitalist society. EA and co have billions of their own, you tell them how to spend it.

You're completely absolving Valve from their own duties as market leader. Competition is nice but it's not even possible if there is such an overwhelming monopoly. Ask Linux and Apple to step up their game, they tried and Windows still has their monopoly. And that's not because people are so fucking in love with Microsoft's great work. People use it because they're forced to. Same with other storefronts. Pure capitalism is bullshit, that's why actual developed countries have government oversight so that single giant entities cannot abuse their power. Capitalism cannot work itself out if it's already broken. We would be in a way worse spot if it wasn't for regulation. Well, the US will be there soon if they expand on their pro corporate bullshit even further. Capitalism breaks itself when one entity becomes too powerful. We've seen that time and time again and we see that today with the biggest corporations also being the worst.

You're basically telling microbes to step up their game against a supernova. It's hard to "GIVE A FUCK" and "WORK HARD" when the odds are absolutely stacked against you. What do you expect them to do? Have instantly all of the games, perfect software and all of the features? That wouldn't even be enough because people are already on steam. For people to switch platforms other stores would have to become twice as big, twice as good and give out free blowjobs every morning. Steam right now is terrible but functional. There is no way for people to switch right now because they've built their collections and friends on there.

And how are the other stores going to compete if nobody uses them? Your logic is flawed and doesn't respect Steams power at all. Your precious capitalism already figured it out. Steam won and there is nothing anyone can do about it with a reasonable amount of effort and money. The end goal of capitalism isn't equal competition, it's one big entity swallowing up everything else to be the most efficient. And congratulations, we reached that point with Steam.

And now let's get back to Steam. You haven't yet explained why we shouldn't hold Valve accountable for what they're doing. Why it has to be upon "the competition" to solve everyone's problems. Why Valve cannot do better. It's no secret that Valve is putting the most minimal effort into their store as possible. They're crushing their "competition" without any effort. Don't you think we're at a point where Steam is just too big to fail? Developers and Publishers will certainly not let that happen because their livelihood depends on it.

There is no entity to take away any power from Steam, we're way past that point. So don't you think it's reasonable instead of demanding more things from stores that are a lot worse off, demanding from Steam instead to better itself?

Capitalism doesn't entail the leader having to give up their share to the rest of the competition. You don't see people clamouring for Sony to give up their deals and exclusives to the competition. The competition has to pick things up by themselves and Nintendo is doing just that, while MS is still stuck in their own rut, trying to improve things as time goes on.

Again, there is nothing to stop devs from choosing to release on Steam. We have devs that also choose to release on GoG, but it has to be DRM free, as that is GoG's golden rule, which in turn can cut off some devs from releasing their game over there, thus they turn to Steam, because they aren't all going to flock to good guy Ubisoft, Activision, Bethesda and EA.

What MS has done with Windows, is totally different from what Valve has with Steam. Steam is optional. You have all the other storefront clients to choose from and use within multiple OS's. With Windows, you can only play Windows 10 based games that come from Xbox, that's MS silly rule, take them up on that. Steam however can operate on not only multiple windows OS's, but also Mac ans Linux as well. Steam even has games that run on both Mac and Linux OS, while some of MS's only work with 10, big difference, especially when one company/publisher owns an OS and the other one is doing fuck all with their OS (meaning Steam OS).

The last thing the industry needs is the the gov stepping in and "regulating" everything. I do not trust any government as far as I can throw them.

Microbes?. Are you seriously calling EA/Activision/Ubisoft/Bethesda microbes?. You do realise the insane amount of money all of those companies has made right?. They can afford to step up their game, only GoG is the one that cannot, because they define themselves purely by the DRM free rule, which excludes a lot of games out there that operate via some form of DRM. If a dev wants DRM in their game, tough luck for GoG, that's the dev's decision (which is why I don't want to buy into games with the shitty Denuvo DRM for one example).

 

Do you know why hardly many use those other storefronts besides GoG?. It's because they mostly sell only games they own or publish. They have shown no interest in indie devs, stop lying for them and making any claim that they do, because they don't. Where the fuck is EA supporting the modding and indie scene, where is activision and Ubisoft?. GoG doesn't have it's own Steam workshop yet and Bethesda is trying to nickel and dime consumers with their own tightly wound Bethesda mod shop, one which is trying to kill their own modding scene that they had fostered for years.

Valve is still working on their Steam overhaul, but I highly doubt the people disliking Steam or not wanting to use it will give a toss when it is finally rolled out.

If Steam "betters" itself, it would become something that the other storefronts can never ever compete against. Your own logic defies the rest of the competition if Steam "got gud".

 

Like Yuri said, Steam has got some bad, but it has also done a lot of good in past years. To ignore all the good and focus on all the bad is just silly and completely asinine.

Steam's issues are not necessarily real issues.
Most of the problems people have with Steam can more or less be solved. with marketing!
I am not sure Valve has the social skills to pull that off though.

Steam still needs a UI overhaul and algorithm teaks and such.
That is a bit beyond my point.

I feel like I'm at a loss here.

I snagged Sony vegas pro 14 the other day via Humble Bundle. Installed it and got it working, but for some reason it refuses to accept AVI files, despite it listing AVI as an acceptable format.

I am aware that it could very well be a codec issue, but even then they only list DivX and Xvid as unaccepted format, but they don't list the codecs that are acceptable. Does anyone have any idea as to what video codecs Vegas Pro 14 will accept?.

Apparently in order for the AVI codec to work, you need other codecs to be installed as well.

Granted it is for an older version but it could be why.
