Sid loves to cherry pick the dramatic but he is not wrong with his extreme examples, yes Epic wants to make money. lol

He thinks that is shocking and wrong that Epic wants to make more money than Valve? That is silly. Why would a company not have that as a goal. "Lets not make money and lets for dang sure make less money than those guys over there because that would be bad."

He comes off as ignorant when he has other good points buried under the misplaced sentiment. Kind of like when people found out that Razor was not actual "by gamers for gamers" but actually a for profit company. Silly to see grown men crying on Twitter and Youtube.

Yes I want the crappy Epic store to improve and hopefully Sid can be part of making that happen but I still do not have my rose colored glasses for Valve and the random ban hammer on games they still have and the years it took their customer support to get to the point it is now. Which when you cherry pick like Sid, people still complain about.

But unless they fix the store it has been, how long, and the only games I buy here are the exclusives on extreme discount and collecting the free ones, which sounds like I will never get to play. lol

I hope this gets Epic to send the Email receipts. It is crazy not to do that, had no idea I was not getting one as I just assumed. (made an @$$ of U and me) lol

Glad Epic is working to fix this I looked and none of my early free games are listed. But they had been free and with no Email to show I purchased them and I had not installed them right away thee is no way to prove one way or another.

Not that I really care to much, as I have way to many games I never play already. But I do not think I am going to risk more money till I can get a receipt.

Epic has always sent out receipt emails for any game purchased. They just didn't send out emails for any of the free games. I have bought 3 games from Epic over the months, and I have email receipts for all of them.

Also the purchase history now shows all purchase history, previously it was set to display only the last 90 days, so Epic changed the display setting to all instead of 90 days.

I contacted Epic support about some of these missing games. I stated all the first 5 or 6 games were missing from my library but then realised it's probably only 3 or 4 as I couldn't be arsed grabbing some of the pixelated games...oops.

Anyway, they said:

Hi Megagay,

I can understand you point of view and also the position you have found yourself in.
That being said, our records do not indicate any purchase of those Free games. Epic Games Player Support will not grant games upon request.

All of my games still exist. Because of this though, I've started the installation process for Subnautica, World of Goo, and Slime Rancher. All games that I think my kids will play on the account when they're old enough. My hope is that once you're 'registered' as installing a game, it will treat your account differently and not delete any games, or at the very least the games that you've installed.

"You'd be forgiven if you didn't notice that The Sinking City released last month. To find it on the Epic Store, you have to scroll past 15 big images promoting other games, some of which aren't even out yet, or search for it specifically. I'm not sure that's what developers who flocked to the store were hoping for..."


I'm not an EGS hater (I just hate having so many launchers), but was surprised to see they have over 100 games already and how their storefront makes 100 games seem as bad as Steam's 34,000.

Picked up the latest free game off Epic, lo and behold a receipt for the claim was emailed.

How much, in US dollars, were some developing countries paying Steam? I know some of the Aussies on here have been paying considerably more (no I'm not saying that's a developing country!)

Depends where in the world. In the places I've visited not that much more than US citizens. Maybe 75 bucks for a 60 dollar title. (60 to Steam, and about 10-15 to the bank/government tax)

The problem was that 75 bucks might convert to say 1,000 of their local dollar, which might be a weekly salary for a middle class person. EGS game store stepped in and said to those countries, "ok how about 20 bucks or 250 local dollars for the title so you can afford it. We'll pay the devs the difference and you don't need to pirate anymore".

Oh that's good. No sense in making games unaffordable. Also, it seems like that means there's ACTUAL competition going on for games on multiple platforms. This is what I'm interested in seeing.

As I sort of said before, I can't imagine it won't take many many more paid for exclusives, but maybe they'll surprise me....

Honestly one of the worst **** about the Epic Store is the password policy. First it won't let me use my normal password because it was "compromised" somewhere. Then I promptly forget WTF I used for a password instead, and now when I try to reset my password it won't let me set it to one of my last five passwords. So now I have to use another random password.

Seriously, **** this password protection strategy, just let me use whatever insecure password I want. If I can't remember the damn password then wtf is the point?
