  1. 10 years and no one has even try to make a game like F:NV, truly a shame. I'm currently playing Greedfall and just finished it. A OK game, spiders do a great job considering the budget.
  2. Pathfinder Kingmaker is one of the best CRPG ever, if you have several mods installed, better than Deadfire for sure. However without the mod there is simply too much random design choices to bog my interest down. It's the game makes me wonder what Obsidian would do if they can straight up adapt the DnD or Pathfinder system instead of coming up with their own. Because the strongest part of Kingmaker is straight up from the Pathfinder pnp game. All the things the designers added in was kind hit and miss.
  3. I can't use EGS because I'm Chinese. I do have a ton of games on Steam, I also have around a dozen on GoG. The thing that worried(or angered) me most are the games EGS was pursing, they are mostly targeting the middle size and indie games, like Outer Worlds and Sinking City, not the big AAA big title. Majority of the "players" dont' really care(or even heard of) about these smaller games, but for me(and I imagine a lot of people here as well) these are the most interesting games out there. They are more driven by the creativity of the developers, instead of coporation's desire for profit. The ones that get hurt the most, are the ones that actually really enjoying playing video games., not the casual gamers. At this rate soon I'll have no game left to play because AAA titles are all going to be loot shooters and the indie games and middle size games are all EGS exclusive.
  4. I highly doubt people are white knighting Steam, we just don't like EGS.
  5. The official tweet from Obisidian states that it will be in Microsoft's store. It's not there probably due to the fact that the game didn't have a release date yet.
  6. The only thing publisher cares about is money, they don't even need to worry about public image because the developers will take the damage for them. So yeah, it's just the cash EGS are throwing at them.
  7. That's not how competition works. EGS wasn't making their platforms better, they are just throwing money away to get market share, and they will get these money back when they get enought market share, from the consumers. It's not competition they want, it's monoploly. Sure, same as everyone. I'm pretty sure that's what competition is. No one is doing anything out of the goodness of their hearts. The problem is EGS are not using a better product to compete and gain market share, they are burning money to force their worse product on people. Consumers won't get a better result from this kind of strategy. It happened before, when they gain a big enough market share, they can push anything on consumers because we don't have a choices anymore. And the things they will do will be the exact opposite of consumer friendly. Steam has been top dog for years, but that's becasue they have actually become the best platform in the market, not because they use exclusive to force people using it.

  9. That's an odd decision. Why would you purposefully cut out the world's largest market? No one knows the real reason, but there is one popular guess: One of their big shareholders, Tencent having their own digital storefront in China. So they just banned China as a whole to avoide competition in the future.
  10. That's pretty cold, man. But admittedly, it's not EGS's fault that the Chinese government bans everything. It's not our government that banned EGS, it's EGS themselvs decided not letting Chinese consumers buy their game. It's their own decision.
  11. Well if I want to use EGS, I have to become a immigrant and live in another country.
  12. There is no such thing as Steam exclusive unless it's a Valve's own game. What are you talking about? Steam never stops publishers to go sell their games on other digital platforms, Epic games do. If the publishers don't want to sell on other platform other than Steam, does valve suppose to force them to sell on GoG or anything?
  13. Well it makes me open the Microsoft Store front page for the first time in my whole life. I'd probably buy something from it for the first time in my whole life as well simply because of this. I'd say it's a relatively efficient way to adversite the windows store. The Windows Store is utter garbage though, I've used it for Forza games and it's been an issue for all three of the Forza games I've played through it, but at least it has user reviews, so it's got that over Epic's even lower effort attempt at a digital storefront. Talk about having to choose between ebola and the plague. At least I can use it in China, unlike EGS. Also it's part of the windows, so you don't have to install another launcher(which steals your personal info).
