I’d wager that regardless of how good of a platform epic was there would be people hating and those people hating they’d be the loudest. I got epic for this game. Didn’t have it before that most likely never woulda got it. Epic game me a free game and a 10 dollar off coupon. I’ll grab my pitchfork those MFers giving me free stuff and a coupon.
Also remember Steam takes 30% of the sale price epic takes 12%. “Well why aren’t games cheaper on epic?” Because you try that steam will kick you off and since gamers are reluctant to have two store fronts losing access to steam is losing lots of revenue.
They said steam won’t let them remove stolen mods from the workshop. ( good mods take time and work we want good modders to stay in the community )
We all watched Galactic civilization 3 get review bombed because of the extensive changes it experienced. If I was a game developer releasing a game that wasn’t finished I’d avoid steam like the plague. I wouldn’t release it there until it was finished and polished.
But like I said let’s get some pitchforks! Who the hell does epic think they are fighting steam’s basic monopoly if they actually get semi effective Vavle may have to make new games instead of profiting massively from inertia
For the record I have steam and like the way it works. Don’t care for their 30% greed mongering. The storefront is effective and efficient.
Also I’m aware there are probably and entire slew of grammatical errors in this post.
