PC has been a very important source of income for Capcom for a while now. Nothing surprising.

PC gamers these days:

So far they are killing it with their PC ports out of other Jap publishers (big Hint for you to learn, SE), and combined with their IP's, it's no wonder they are doing so well on the platform.

Yea pretty much. The thing I really hate about SE is how they continue their Playstation exclusivity nonsense while many other publishers figured out that you can make more money if you treat PC gamers right. Hell SE goes the extra mile of fuck youism by making their games EGS exclusive right after they sucked off Sony for their exclusivity.

Hopefully one day, SE will learn as well since there's a lot of money to be made if you treat PC gamers right. We are no longer in the 7th gen where PC gaming felt like the forth wheel. These days, PC gaming is huge and a lot of publishers understand the formula to make people happy.

I decided to get FFVII Remake Intergrade when it launched on Steam. It has the exact same problems it did when it launched on EGS. Remake got Refunded. The so little effort SE puts into their PC releases is staggering. I have no idea why it has a 90% Very Positive rating on Steam. PC gamers are just that hungry for Square's crumbs they throw our way lol.

I doubt Kingdom Hearts will ever leave EGS at this point either.

EDIT: I still find it funny when Atlus put Persona 4 Golden on PC and it had massive success, shocking Sega I'm wondering how much of an effect that had on Persona going multiplatform.

Yea pretty much. Hell with FFVIIR, Nvidia had to go and patch in a stutter fix cause SE couldn't be bothered to fix their own game. I did buy it at a steep enough discount to where I am fine with it but it's very dumb for SE to release it in this state. Although this is the same company that still has not fixed Nier Automata on PC so it's not surprising. I don't even remember the state KH was in.

And yea, I wouldn't doubt if Sega saw the sales of Persona 4 Golden and decided to bring the series Multiplatform. Honestly I am glad Sega bought Altus cause pre-sega Altus would never do this imo. But then again, modern gaming is kinda crazy. If you told me Insomniac would be porting Spiderman Remaster to PC and optimizing for Valve's handheld, I'd think you are crazy a few years ago.

its simple really SE doesn't have faith in its products so chooses the safe route by getting paid by epic

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

I also shit you not, there are still a number of folks on PC that are unaware of KH HD collection/Chaos/TWEWY being released on PC (only via EGS mind you) and it's been like a year and a half. EGS/SE couldn't be fucked marketing those 3 games for the platform and EGS visibility is lower than Steam's as far as I can see. 

SE is just going to learn the hard way.

Nintendo Switch emulator Ryujinx now supports Vulkan, Playstation 3 emulator RPCS3 supports save states
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/nintendo-emulator-ryujinx-now-supports-vulkan-playstation-3-emulator-rpcs3-supports-save-states/
Some news surfaced yesterday regarding the best emulators for Nintendo Switch and Playstation 3. According to their teams, Ryujinx now supports the Vulkan API, whereas RPCS3 now supports save states.
According to the devs behind Ryujinx, the Vulkan API will benefit mostly AMD and Intel owners. Since their OpenGL drivers are not as good as NVIDIA’s, owners of these GPUs can either deal with graphical bugs and poor performance or use Linux. However, and by using Vulkan, Ryujinx can run faster on both AMD’s and Intel’s hardware. Furthermore, Vulkan can natively use a shading language called SPIR-V which is much faster at compiling shaders than the rather sluggish GLSL that OpenGL uses. This last one will also benefit NVIDIA owners.
On the other hand, Save States on RPCS3 are snapshots of whatever was happening on the emulator at the exact moment when they were performed.

https://www.dsogaming.com/mods/real-return-to-castle-wolfenstein-4-0-mod-brings-new-enemies-ai-reiforcements-new-hud-more/
WolfETPlayer has released a new version of the RealRTCW overhaul mod for Return To Castle Wolfenstein. According to the modder, Version 4.0 adds new enemies, improves animations, adds the Rewards System for finding Secrets, and introduces AI Reiforcements.
In case you weren’t aware, RealRTCW is an overhaul mod that features a new renderer, expands the game’s arsenal, rebalances gunplay, and packs HD graphics.
Going into more details, the new enemy types are Occult Priests, X-Shepherds, German Shepherd. The first two were exclusive to the console version of Return To Castle Wolfenstein. And, speaking of console-only features, the mod adds the Rewards System for finding Secrets.

This Zelda: Breath of the Wild mod for Minecraft totally Hyrules
https://www.pcgamer.com/this-zelda-breath-of-the-wild-mod-for-minecraft-totally-hyrules/
The vast and lovely landscapes of Breath of the Wild are such an obvious match for Minecraft that someone built the entire BOTW map last year, but that was just a starting point. Yet another pair of modders have added in some crucial Zelda gameplay with a functional Sheikah Slate and all its abilities, a boomerang, Sheikah towers, and quite a bit more. If you're sick to death of creepers exploding all your hard work, you can give them a taste of their own torture with Link's remote detonate bombs.

This Doom modder is sending Max Payne to Mars in 'Doom Payne'
https://www.pcgamer.com/this-doom-modder-is-sending-max-payne-to-mars-in-doom-payne/
If you've ever wished Max Payne would shut up about his metaphorical demons and start confronting some literal ones, a modder by the name of BulletTimeTails is working on the mod for you. "Doom Payne", which they've been tinkering with since at least June, takes everyone's favourite whiskey-soaked cop-slash-beat poet and drops him straight into the original Doom games, along with his guns, angst, and inexplicable ability to transcend the laws of time.
