An epic rant from TFM. No doubt this viewpoint is going to trigger a lot of people.

Based on historical statement on this sites, I don't see this ending well. I agree with his sentiment, not necessarily his tone/language, but honestly the tone of the majority anti-epic is also awful as well.

Well those people should understand that it is either buy exclusivity or die.



Because a gamer should prefer that a platform invest money in making new games/open new studios. Buying time exclusives seems like a waste of money and what does it add to the gaming world? I prefer new experiences/games instead of the fanboyish but platform x does it to make more money argument.






I couldn't give two flying, pink shites about Bl3 but I'll watch the video anyway cause I have no social life, nothing to else to do on a very cold day and I'm cripplingly, mind numbingly, pain in the gut/knife would feel better kind of depressed.

Yes. I agree with most of what he said in the first have of the video as a long proponent of console exclusoves. There is one evil he is forgetting, service based platforms that will take over gaming and we'll all be hoping for a monopoly at that point. I also don't like the idea of snaking exclusoves from the competition as it is lazy, pull a Sony or Nintendo and create your own library. It will do better in the long run and for now, I do see signing exclusives deals as a gap filler but the implementation of this was and is still terrible on Epics part. Signing a game thst is crowd funded for example, low blow. Signing games that are already being sold on Steam as pre orders, just sickening.
I hope to just see them all grow organically and put in the time instead of snaking competition, same goes for MS and Sony. Thankfully MS are copping on and building studios. Hopefully Epic and steam (again) can too.

How about this for a third Option: Just bring a better service than Steam. Considering how bad Steam has become, that wouldn't have been that hard to do.

Hey, I can even bring up a fourth Option: Carving out their own niche, like GOG does with Retro games and itch.io does with indies.

But no, they had to make it even worse than Steam and then buy exclusivities on top of it.

Seriously, there could have been lots of different ways to not die - they just chose the worst ones from a consumer perspective. And that's why many gamers are pissed about the EGS. They could even just have the games being cheaper in their store, promoted it out and waited at bit, and gamers who would have been interested into it would have flocked there from themselves. But what they do instead is holding games randsom behind their shitty storefront.

And no, it's not just about installing yet another store. I certainly don't mind about that (would be number 7 8 to me, after Impulse, GamersGate, Desura, GOG, Uplay, Steam and itch.io, so one more or less doesn't affect me, really), but about the services it provides - or rather doesn't provide. And the fact that TenCent owns half of the store and already had data violations is just the cherry on top for me.



I just download a different launcher.

100% agree with him.



I don't understand people being upset with something like this, it's not like they have to buy a whole new PC to play the game like console gamers do with console exclusive games... all they've got to do is download a FREE launcher to be able to buy and play their game. It's a complete non-issue for me, lol.



The vid in one word : lulz
