Can the Samurai Shodown V Perfect (never before released version of the game that was going to be the last neo geo game but was never released in the end) rom be extracted from the collection and played in an emulator? I don't wanna download ~10GB (wtf kind of extras does it include, haha) to find out that it can't.

Not as easy as just grabbing the rom, but I guess those bundles can be extracted somehow:

Kuroki elaborated on the reasoning behind his refusal, saying that the retailer wanted to sell Samurai Shodown on its PC platform with the condition of a pre-order of hundreds of thousands of copies in exchange for exclusivity, but declined as he believed that the game would be a title to sell more than a million copies. Kuroki also explained that he met with his reports and said, “I know that there is a big expectation from the outside as well as the company,” but he was “confident in the perfection of the game.”
I guess they weren't so confident after all. It's $9 with the coupon now on EGS for my region. Meh.

Old, but interesting nonetheless, given that Tim Sweeney advocated for platforms to stay out of politics.

Update from Epic Games
June 3, 2020
By Epic Games

Hey Fortnite community,

Recent events are a heavy reminder of ongoing injustices in society, from the denial of basic human rights to the impact of racism both overt and subtle against people of color. We're acutely aware of the pain our friends, families, team members, players, and communities are experiencing.

We believe in equality and justice, diversity and inclusion, and that these fundamentals are above politics.

The team is eager to move Fortnite forward, but we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families, and their communities.

The live event The Device will be delayed to Monday, June 15, and the Season 3 launch delayed to Wednesday, June 17. We know this delay comes on the heels of another one, and we appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult times.

- Epic Games

Especially that part:

We believe in equality and justice, diversity and inclusion, and that these fundamentals are above politics.

In terms of actually saying anything, that statement is pretty empty - buzzwords and this: The team is eager to move Fortnite forward, but we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families, and their communities.
Remember when people were up in arms over companies not giving lip service to the movement? this is what it looks like when lip service is just lip service.

Well yeah, they've hijacked the faintest whiff of a poltical sentiment - perhaps the most surface-level rumblings of it that your average uninformed knows about - and made it about their company and their product. And they even have the gall to deny it's political in the first place, that they have somehow risen above it. It's pretty appalling and an incredibly privileged position to take.

In the end, giving lip service to deeply political issues that have erupted into the present news cycle is only about the company and its products rather than the causes they are saying they support. That's bad enough. To then try and deny that it is a political issue so your company can maintain its "no politics" mantra while also capitalising on the positive sentiment of "doing the right thing" is extra gross.

I get the whole "racism isn't political" statement. I get it as a weak cop op to play to all sides as it deny's that racism fuels much of political activity in voting, legislation, representation. Don't piss on us and say its raining. I'm at the point where someone say something is 'apolitical', that someone either tactically supports or is a direct supporter of some nasty shit.

Just admit you were wrong and that politics are integral to pretty much everything you do in life and move on you fucks, how can you fail so much every step? You're not gonna lose customers, random manbabies addicted to Fortnite won't stop playing just cos you posted something they dislike on twitter. Own up.

Tried a pirated copy of Among Trees (early access survival game). The game has a really beautiful artstyle and I can see it become big, but not now. It's horrible optimized and really janky. Yeah, gonna wait a year on this one.

Now Im just hoping The Last Campire isn't timed exclusive.

so what? if it was coming to both they'd say so in the trailer
Eh, I'd say it's pretty misleading, not to mention taking advantage of Steam for advertising only for the product to be available on another platform through bullshit exclusivity deals. It has no right to remain on Steam if they aren't going to be sold there in my opinion.

How is supporting equality no matter what your skin color is a political issue? Regardless of what you think about sweeney and EGS, I don't see how this is political statement.

EGS is having a rough week. They lost their biggest exclusive Satisfactory and are losing other exclusives en masse like Griftlands, Quantic Dream trilogy, The Outer Wilds, and Journey.

Then a bunch of the games shown at the PS5 gaming event are EGS, but also happen to be the least interesting games in the show so nobody cares and they get ignored.

Then the PC gaming show happens and is obviously Epic's big news push with how many epic exclusives are at the show. But only a handful actually look interesting and they all get completely overshadowed by an 8-year-old Vita port which completely takes over all media attention (Chie, Persona 4, Atlus and Steam were trending on twitter all day yesterday lmao) and releases exclusively on Steam.

Poor tim sweeney

Don´t forget that Klei are giving Griftlands on Steam for anyone that had purchase the game on EGS, the potential for people to start demanding Steam keys from every developer on EGS is now wide open.
This is a trick to get us to give epic our money; HOLD PEOPLE HOLD. We will stand strong until sweeney and his money grubbing hands are long dead and steam stands strong. Only buy on steam!

Godfall looks like what you’d see if you googled generic unreal engine tech demo. People will buy it on PS5 because its a launch title that isn’t available on last gen and people will drop it and move on in a month or two. Maybe it’ll gain more traction in 2021 when it comes to Steam.

I watched the PC gaming showcase with easy allies and they thought it looks generic and just okay. They laughed when the devs said this was a new genre.

Mortal Shell actually had a good trailer, but it seems like most excitement and hyped vanished when they showed the boss battle.

I personally really liked the trailer, but the boss trailer made the game look like yet another mediocre Souls-clone.

I think that at this point EGS has lost a lot of momentum and none of the revealed games have enough pull to bring the store back into the spotlight.
Hope so. I missed all the PC gamer show stuff and so am just catching up now and so far there aren't really any games i'm bothered about missing out on due to eggs.

Hmm. IDK. EGS tends to give away $10 vouchers for free. A number of people I know who took advantage of free GTAV also got $10 free.

My biggest thing is keeping my collection "in front" of me. I lose track of what games I can play on which service (Steam, Origin, Xbox Game Pass).

Being able to generate a Steam key through EGS, I think is a great feature if is implemented going forward. After all, our biggest issue is exclusives, right?

Yes for sure, but all they are going to do with the money u give them is pour it into more exclusivity bullshit. They clearly are still actively pursuing developers to get for exclusivity.

Given how critical this place was pre-PCGamingShow. 23 games is not as big a number, nor featuring as many new titles as I'd have expected. I still won't buy anything from the store but I'm less worried. None of those are really, as we in the games enthusiasm community call 'megatons'. Yeah, Valhalla will sell and EGS and Ubi will pat themselves on the back, but it's already a known quantity. I can't pick one of those titles and say 'That is for sure going to bust out huge on PC on EGS.'

Twin Mirror is the only one there that disappoints, but that's old news. Not interested in any of the others or I'm happy to wait.

I definitely think we've turned a corner on what games go EGS exclusive when compared to year one, where everyone seemed to want a slice of Epic's pie.

Nowadays it seems only troubled games are getting announced as new exclusives, save for the Ubisoft stuff of course.
