Just 6 months for BL3, thats an easy wait! sadly I think epic has actually split the gaming community right in half and with it, the resurgence of piracy. Hardly a great thing for anyone as old Amiga developers well know!

At least Cyberpunk 2070 will be DRM free, Epic wont buy their way into CDPRs pockets and frankly that game is causing the most hype of all.

Yeah I was bummed when the news hit about BL3, however the fun part is the TWITTER battle with Randy Pitchford at Gearbox.

I get that he is pissed at some peeps but he has to also look at it from the consumer level too, there is no choice in exclusives, be it timed or ONLY exclusive

I'm pretty bummed about the fact that I read about a new exclusive almost daily. Anno 1800 seems to be the next where the extreme dick move is pulled of announcing on Steam and then dropping in the last moment.

Just found out Outer Worlds will be an Epic Store timed-exclusive.

Epic is not playing around.

Basically it's the spiritual Fallout: New Vegas sequel that everyone wanted but was never going to happen because the original New Vegas was an unexpected fan favorite that Bethesda could never live up to themselves.

I wish Epic good luck (even they are the same money suckers) only because someone has to break steam monopoly and awful 1/3 share to them. After I have UPlay, Origin, Steam, Battle.NET and GOG, Epic Store and Bethesda launcher does bothering me.

Yeah it's a store built in the 21st century which does not have shopping cart functionality. It blows the mind. It was a case of "Does the buy button work? Put it online!"

The lack of any DLC support is also quite hilarious

That's just an unfortunate bug they're yet to patch, everyone uses the Epic Store to play that free game called Fartnite or something...

pppfffftttttt Steam vs Epic.

Thank GOG for DRM free retro games.
https://www.gog.com/

That's right boys and girls. No DRM. Downloadable installers that you can back up and keep if you wish to.

And hundreds of retro titles.

I'm currently hovering over "buy now" on my basket containing:
Requiem
X-Wing
Tomb Raider 1
Tomb Raider 2
Tomb Raider 3
Unreal GOLD

For the grand total of.......
$14.56 (AUD) or ~£8

Why haven't I clicked buy yet?
Just spotted a great PSVR deal lol. Waiting to see what swear words the wife will choose when she messages me back.

GOG is great, but all the retro games are DRM free anywhere basically. GOG just has more DRM free titles.
