I like it, competition is good for all. I think the "outrage" about is completely ridiculous though, instead of console wars it's like now we're having launcher/store wars lol. Having to use another launcher isn't the end of the world & I think Valve is going to have to make some changes here soon. Will be interesting for the rest of the year to see where other big games end up

I've no intention of getting the game regardless of where it's being sold, but taking it at the last minute is pretty scummy. I'm happy with Steam and GoG so I'm not bothering with the Epic launcher. I don't see it taking off regardless of how much money they throw at devs, it will just turn out to be another Origin.

I left PC gaming predominantly because of Steam's pseudo-monopoly, so I have to say I'm happy to see competition entering the arena beyond the two DRM-free stores and EA/Ubi. OTOH, my opinion of Epic as a business is far, far, far below my opinion of Epic as an engine developer, and my opinion of their engines has always been lower than id. Replacing a store monopoly with an engine monopoly running a store may not be better than EA/Ubi anyway. Especially when it's fueled by Fortnite blood money.

They knew about it weeks ahead of time, yet still accepted pre-orders on Steam. The Epic Store is not really a good online store at the moment, missing many features that are prominent on other sites, and Epic seams to care much more about snagging 3rd party exclusive games on a platform that never has to deal with that sort of situation (and honestly, most consoles don't even get this many timed exclusives anymore) over simply having a feature-rich storefront that consumers actually want to use. The backlash is warranted.

I mean, I'm not mad - I'm gonna get it on the PS4 when it comes out regardless. Still, it doesn't take a genuis to realize that they've shot themselves in the foot.

RE2 is seriously beautiful on my aging PC. I configured my DS4 so that it switches to gyro motion whenever I hold down the left trigger, which works beautifully with the control scheme! Took a few minutes of tooling around, but all of my shots are much more accurate now.

Posting purely because the Verge is stupid. Don't want to go into it too much because there's plenty said about it already. But if you believe in fair use give his video a watch and a like:

I heard they started copyright claiming/flagging videos mocking them or something.

This might be a good opportunity to finally try this series. Still never played a Halo game for any length of time.

One game at a time!

They had one job. By the time it's all out, I could probably get a used Xbox One for less than the total price, especially since they're monetizing each mode separately, at least with Halo Reach. If nothing else, it'll be more convenient.

@CanisWolfred the monetization of some modes of halo reach is only on xbox one as far as i understood. it's for the people who already have the MCC and now wnat to get halo reach, too. i highly doubt you have to pay for every single mode in the pc version. there will defintly be a proper bundle with all games. i only care about the single player anyway. never had an xbox 360 so the only games i played were halo ce and halo 2

@6ch6ris6 No, they specifically said:

Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4 will each be available for individual purchase within MCC as they become available.

Source: https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2019/03/12/halo-mcc-coming-to-pc/

They're selling them individually. While it's possible the total price will be within the current $30 the collection retails, I'm not holding my breath, because it's equally possible that they're going to use the collection to obscure the total cost, and charge whatever they feel like, all while using the "ongoing development costs and lack of Xbox Live subscriptions" to justify charging more.

Already added to my wishlist.

I'd been meaning to donate to the developers for years, because this game is a marvel. I hope Dwarf Therapist works with it though.

Yeah I've been meaning to donate too. Time and money.... They'll get less of a chunk than other methods of donation, but every little bit keeps them fed (and healthy too it seems). Some of Toady's stories from his work on the Villain arc are simply amazing. I can't imagine what version 1.00 will be like.

I imagine Dwarf Therapist will work, they're just adding new tile packs, music, and adding mod support. Basically making things slightly easier to get in to.

As a side note, I love how, on the Steam page, the release date is set to "time is subjective."

@6ch6ris6
It's certainly not something you can just pick up and play, but it's not nearly as difficult as people make it out to be. I found the best way to learn Fortress Mode was to learn only a couple of aspects at a time. First I started with how to view dwarves and change dwarf professions. Then it was digging and chopping down trees. Next it was building workshops, farms, walls, stairs and bridges (and how to use them). Afterwards it was learning how to build a waterwheel and have it power a pump. Finally I made a pump stack and brought magma up from the depths. That got me comfortable with fortress construction, after which it's keeping everything running and learning how to run a militia, which is reasonably simple.

Ouch. The Outer Worlds and Control were both announced as one-year Epic Store exclusives.
