    think kenshi has better looking animations. and base building, and henchmen to hire and factions to murder.

    yea does not look like a game to get that hyper about to begin with. looks like an indy title could be cool could be janky as hell and need tons of updates and mods to make it good.

    I'm really curious to see how this years E3 pc game show is going to go and if people really are going to boo when "exclusive to the epic store" is shown at the end of trailers.

    It's not that they "exist", it's more to do with what they are doing by paying to force games off other platforms.

    I read that on fuckepic lol. I think that DS is trying to extort refund money from him that's why he's bitching on twitter and no updates have been made on the ks page.

    I keep reading this thread and I'm still not sure why I'm supposed to hate/boycott EGS. I haven't installed it, but I'm just not seeing what the big deal is. It isn't exactly the same as steam, seems to be the gist of all this. I'm not looking for an explanation here, I just disagree. *shrugs*

    For the same reason we are suppose to hate Sony and anything Playstation related.

    I personally see it from both point of view, Valve need to be weakened but the heavy handed way that Epic is doing is bad and will never be popular.

    Saying that, PC gamers left Epic no choice. Give people a choice to not use your service and they won't use it. Take that choice away and while lots still wont, many will give in.

    The guy's an idiot.
    He's so blind to the world around him it doesn't matter what is put in front of him. All he sees is that he's making "PC gaming better". He thinks it's the only option because he doesn't want to work "with" Steam/Valve to improve the system. He wants to own it.

    Can't have a truly open platform (as he claims) when you are the one splintering things apart.

    I agree, Tim really doesn't know what to do with the money.

    Maybe someone told him "can't buy me love" and now he's trying a bit too hard to make all gamers love Epic - to proove a point.

    he believes money is power n power creates influnce but the fall off for fortnite has already begun which means the clock is slowly tickin

    SuperData reports that Fortnite revenue on all platforms combined declined by a huge 48% month-over-month

    A person can be an smart and still be an idiot.
    I'm not questioning his intelligence, just his common sense.

    let say that everyone is dumb, because as much as anyone can know their is so much we can never know or understand even if by some miracle we had a 500 iq much of the knowledge of the universe and physics is locked away from us.

    and rarely can we equally smart in every field, my verbal and spatial type skills are off the charts as a dual hemisphere lefty, but when it comes to numbers my brain goes out to lunch and refuses to deal with them. and math was aways a struggle but the first time i hit algebra well any hopes of being a physicist or something were dashed. but i love me the theories and stuff but i can never do the maths, and 3d time theory is all maths......

    but yea on a wide enough scale we all blithering morons in our own unique way.

    I dunno why but just looking at the guy's pic and his tweets makes me feel he's frustrated and wants gamers to be frustrated as well. Can't have the world around you having fun while you're suffering in your personal bubble of epicness.
    This guy doesn't know how to read and lead ppl in a nice manner. That quality will always shine and ppl will eventually follow the light even it takes a bit longer. Steam has earned that status over years & years of hit & miss.
