    they're making billions off of Fortnite alone so I wouldn't worry. And it's not like they don't know what they're doing.

    Thanks for the tip, pretty nice, especially with development that allows for even more launchers to be integrated.
    Games that are not purchased from GOG still need their launchers installed thou, but at least it can shut those down after play.

    I can attest to this. I have a $hit3 ton of games on there. Just got Control for $21.

    Loving Epic games. Still not sure what all the hurt is about them. And yeah take them free games and say you won't buy any with "your" money. They still have you as their "member" regardless of how you look at it.

    EPIC is like that kid in school that got bullied back in the day but now he won the lottery he throws party after party and lend ppl his new Ferrari but everybody knows once the money is gone nobody knows him anymore. ;)

    In my case it's rather amassing a huge pile of free games across all the competing platforms that I never play due to lack of time. The full consolidated collection on GOG Galaxy is now over 200 titles, and I've bought maybe 40, the rest were free.

    Well, from my experience three is always better than two... - so bring it!

    Nope, same stuff.

    EGS and Steam are literally the same client, the steam edition is even bundling EGS dll's now.

    In the case the rockstar launcher cannot log in, the game will eventually start and then throw up a dialog that you can't even do anything with apart from Quit.

    I have no idea why people attack Epic's business decisions while buying hardware from intel/AMD/nvidia.

    Interesting freebies are nice
    but I would not be able to live with myself if I start pollution their income with my toxic money! To be honest, I would not be sure if that was my money to begin with because buying with a card few times is a suspicious fraudulent activity!

    and what did that actually cost epic? I wonder why a hardware store wouldn't do this...

    competition is great and I have enjoyed wwz but I just see no point in yet another store/launcher for me, I'm angry enough at that uplay thing showing up every time I launch siege or for honor and having to close it from the notification area after I get bored

    as for piracy still being a thing when the stuff is "free" well here's a thing, a few months ago I gifted gta v to my cousin's steam account and he is now enjoying it there but also kept the pirated version to play singleplayer because it loads faster & 100% reliable with no possible hiccups, so thats probably why
