Actually that isnt what happened at all. They said before release that it would be only available on gog for the first 2 weeks (or month, i forget which), before then being sold on steam and elsewhere. There was no realization or luck of funds involved.

Ok, now I have a bit of an issue with epic games store. I have been using other launchers for years w/o issue. I just start using epic launcher and now I notice tonight that my display name had been changed 3 days ago. I did not change it. When I go to change my PW, it errors out over and over again. I then copy the page into another browser figuring that I will log in on that one and try it. It auto logs me in on that browser even though I hadn't logged in on that one before. At least I was able to change my PW but I still have to wait a couple weeks to change my display name.

Your account was probably compromised, did you use the same credentials elsewhere? Due to the very high black-market value of Fortnite accounts with certain skins, epic accounts are a high priority for attackers.

Enable 2 factor authorization on your account if you haven't done so already. (in the client click on your name, then click on manage account, then go to the password and security tab)

Haven't seen any new poachings by Epic these last couple of weeks. Maybe the "No Steam, no buy" asshats have actually negatively affected that business practice? Maybe Steam has wised up and is forcing publishers to agree that if they advertise on the Steam storefront, that they must sell the game on the Steam storefront?

It's been too quiet.

I don't like Epic's business practice of sniping deals with publishers when the game was expected to be launched on Steam. I think if you kept up with the thread, you would know this.

I also don't like the faux-loyal Steamers who proclaim "No Steam, No Buy." They are being silly. I bought The Witcher 3 directly from GOG, as I did Far Cry 4 directly from Uplay. Both games are offered on Steam, but even if they weren't, I would still buy from their respective clients, the same I would buy Half Life 3 from Steam if Valve did not offer that game on GOG or Uplay.

@ Eisberg, Close to the Sun does not fit the criteria that I laid out. Shakedown Hawaii does, but the game looks like ass, so it does not fit the criteria that I failed to lay out. That being "a game worth a ****".

Fair, but no one has really done the “no steam, no buy” thing before, right? Looking at Battlefield for example, no one complains (at least not that I’ve seen) that BF isn’t offered on Steam. It seems the “no steam, no buy” applies to these games that aren’t being made in-house by the same company offering the digital store. I don’t see anyone with pitchforks because of EA only selling BF on Origin, but people do seem to be upset by the 4A/Epic fiasco.

The No Steam No Buy crap is all over the Genesis Aloha One and Metro Exodus Steam forums. It's ridiculous, but I do think it's having an effect on business decisions. Either that, it Epic isn't seeing proper ROI for their shenanigans so far.

No one complained that Valve sells Half Life exclusively through Steam either.

It is Epic's practice of poaching a game that is already on Steam's store that upsets people the most. It upsets me, and I had no intention of buying those games beforehand. It does bother me when a game is not released in Steam in the first place, but that example is a more natural market based occurance that Valve can (if they ever decide to) compete for.

I'm not convinced we should feel bad for Valve based on Epic distorting the market, when they themselves specify that you can't sell your product in another digital store for less than it costs on Steam. I'm actually surprised that hasn't been challenged in court because it sounds incredibly anti-competitive in light of Steam controlling the vast majority of the PC gaming market.

Its not that the game cant be sold in another store for less than steam, it's that the publisher cant set a lower initial and later reduced base price. It can go on sale on another store at a different time, and the store itself can have a sale on the game whenever it wants.

I wouldn't have a problem with Epic if it was more like all the other sellers offering keys for whatever platform (Origin, Steam, UPlay, etc.). I probably wouldn't even be as annoyed with Epic if they brought in their own DRM and offered their platform like Steam does, but then let the keys be sold anywhere so I can get the best price. Buying out exclusives and leaving us no options for sales or purchases from 3rd parties sucks.

Yeah, i just dont understand what devs are thinking. I mean if you can afford to go the high moral ground, and you think this is it, sure all the more power to you, but there is no consumer that benefits from buying anything from epic at the moment. It's not even a boycott the stupidity situation, it's simply, how dumb are you to buy anything off epic right now? i mean seriously?

Really not that big of a deal with the launcher. It's much more lightweight than Steam. Loads very quickly, faster than steam, and doesn't update itself nearly every day like Steam. Doesn't even load unless I launch Metro, so it's out of sight out of mind.

I hate the exclusive idea at first, but playing every day and jumping into Metro so fast started to make me wonder why it often felt like it takes forever to start a steam game. Epic launcher just starts up and go, loads game seemingly infinitely faster than steam. I'm kinda glad I didn't take the moral high ground, because now given the choice between Steam and Epic, I think I may very well choose to purchase on Epic because of the faster, lightweight launcher.

It's not even a boycott the stupidity situation, it's simply, how dumb are you to buy anything off epic right now? i mean seriously?
For me, I just want to buy a game, install a game, and then play it, Epic offers that as well. And in the case of Epic, they some of the games I am looking forward to like:
Operencia: Stolen Sun
Rebel Galaxy Outlaw
Outer Wilds

Yeah, i will prolly cave on rebel galaxy maybe, but nothing else. I know you and others see it simply as buying a product, but the problem is your buying the product from stalin.

Operencia looks like Bard's Tale, so that's a good thing (at least for me). I really like the art style and the mix they use so far. Will keep an eye on it for sure.

I hate the exclusive idea at first, but playing every day and jumping into Metro so fast started to make me wonder why it often felt like it takes forever to start a steam game. Epic launcher just starts up and go, loads game seemingly infinitely faster than steam. I'm kinda glad I didn't take the moral high ground, because now given the choice between Steam and Epic, I think I may very well choose to purchase on Epic because of the faster, lightweight launcher.
Their launcher is very primitive which is surprising coming from a company as loaded as EPIC is. I couldn't even find a way to create a default directory for downloads so I have to manually tell it put the games on a separate HDD each time I download something (admittedly, only one game right now and that is the new Unreal Tournament).

Once you install a game through Epic for the first time, it remembers that location and automatically auto fills the location to the same place.
For example, when I got Subnautica from Epic Store, when it was free, it was the first game I installed and I chose for it to install to E:\Epic Games\Games\subnautica

Then when I installed the second game, which was Edith Finch, it automatically auto filled to install to E:\Epic Games\Games\Edithfinch

so it always remembers E:\Epic Games\Games
