And by the way, PoliticallyCorrectGamesN is trash, and you shouldn't give them the clicks.

 

I'm not really familiar with them, what's wrong with them?

 

The 'witty' pseudonym you've given them makes me think I'll probably find the reasons given laughable, but I'm open to being persuaded otherwise.

 

Heh.

 

Beyond the fact that their editorial line is based on fellating publishers, Google and the other usual suspects, it's less of a news outlet than a place for their writers to throw their poorly sourced opinion pieces in. A few months ago there was this non-stop ranting about how crypto miners were destroying gaming for everyone, for example, disguised as hardware "news" articles.

 

It's also full of garbage clickbait "what do we know about X? Release date of X" articles that contain **** all about X, and amount to "we don't know jack squat about X". And they keep pushing those back to the front page every time there's the smallest bit of info about X released.

 

The website layout is atrocious for widescreen, but if you're not browsing from a phone, you're SOL.

 

The frequent virtue signaling is just the icing on the cake.

I don't think this is at all true but, regardless, you know what this reminds me of? (Where 'this' is people saying "I'll never an Obsidian game ever again!!1!!" )

 

It reminds of when Steam was new back in 2003/04. The ****storm that was kicked up over it was epic among nerds. Heh.

They have misspelled The Outer Wilds, game with similar title, but not the same.

 

You don't know that for sure.

 

 

LOL, it most obviously is. But sure, let shadow of doubt besiege us.

Get a load of this "alpha" male. Just because you're incapable of being a decent person, it doesn't mean that others are "faking" it.

I love how people use the words "alpha male" as if it were something bad.

Let's try and not re-enact some Gamergate garbage over a concerning story that has a decent chance of being BS anyway.

Why are you people getting so wound up when there's really very little evidence so far?

 

Calm down folks.

Looks like pcgamesn tweet is gone, they are trashy click-bait writers who often don't know what they are talking about, their twiiter account has barely any traction.

 

Hopefully Obsidian see the good sense in not talking Epic's money, the backlash is not worth it. Fortnite kids are not going to buy into a game like The Outer Worlds, few are going to leave Steam and sign up to Epic's outlet.

This would be an easy story for the publisher to confirm/deny, but nobody has.  It's one of those things that's only blown up because of silence on the part of the people who can answer the question. 

 

Well, and because there has been a lot of internet controversy about the Epic launcher being really blatant spyware, and games like Metro Exodus and Phoenix Point going Epic exclusive out of nowhere after advertising Steam access.

Oh, look. Another slacktivist who believes he's changing the world, one furious post at a time.

 

Have you punched your daily nazi yet?

Everyone knows it's best to be an early access male.

Epic Game store is the most awful platform out there, way worse comparing to any of its competitior, whether it's Uplay or Origin. The worst part is they are not trying to make their platform better, they are just trying to buy exclusive to force people use it, meanwhile bluffing about "helping" the developer. And on top of it being ****, I can't even buy a game from it just because I live in China. 

 

If Outer Worlds go there for the money I won't touch this game even when it comes back to steam a year later. Seriously, **** Epic Game store, the soon it rots in hell the better.

It... SHOULD go to Epic Games? It just shouldn't go JUST to Epic Games. The game (all games) should be in all the storefronts.

And its confirmed.

 

Obsidian, today you lost a sale, a loyal customer and a longtime fan.

 

Hope it was worth it.
