I wonder if games in development hell are more open to these deals or just bad luck.
seems pretty obvious to me that the first one is the one that fits the most, if it's development hell and you get paid for a timed exclusivity, if it turns out a bad game at the very least you have that money, if you have nothing and turns out bad, then you are **

Which means that Epic has to actively scout for opportunities to snatch up video games while they're still in their development phase, like they did with Shenmue 3, and hope that it pans out.

Imagine. Executives with the pull-lever for millions of dollars, deciding what might turn out to be a great game to draw in customers to EGS, who are not gamers themselves.

And so you get stuff like

EGS just added more payment options for Indonesia. At the current state, it's by far the most complete and convenient payment system across all gaming platforms, ever. OVO is the biggest digital wallet in here, Dana is a relatively new but it's on the rise lately. Alfamart is cash payment from minimarket.

I wish Steam has at least one of these (besides paypal).

I also noticed that they started charging in Mexican Pesos here. But just a few game have regional pricing.

Im curious, what are the prices for Control, Maneater, No Straight Roads and Tony Hawk Standard Edition in Indonesia?

Was there any new announcements for EGS titles during Gamescon Opening Night? I checked EGS website earlier and noticed that they didn't have a page up at the time.


For clarity, this won't result in any changes to the way that the standalone or Steam versions of Path of Exile operate. It's another storefront to find the game on and launch the client from.

So wait, 2GD took an EGS deal because Gabe called him out for his shitty conduct while casting Dota matches?

LLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLL
More likely Timmy offered him a deal because of his public falling out with Valve, and he took it because, uh, look at that shit.

Looks competently made outside the unappealing character models. At the same time it doesn't do anything Quake 3 didn't (or everything it did) do in 1999 so.

Remember when Control released on Steam and every shop in existence was fighting to have the lowest price?

Crysis Remastered is discounted from 56.99€ down to amazing 55.98€. What a deal, EGS is doing so much for customers.

WRC8 is doing big numbers on Steam after being released a year late and right when WRC9 is released. 41 concurrent players 🔥🔥💦💦 That amazing 25% discount must have pushed a lot of people over.

I like how the Steam forum has now become a WRC9 troubleshooting forum.

they probably knew this would happen ... that's why they sold out WRC9 as well

wonder if it'll still work with WRC10 for them, or will Tim finally decide that's enough ;)

Just a reminder Nacon pulled Paranoia Happiness is Mandatory from Epic in February and haven’t said anything about it since but its Steam page is still up.

What the fuck is even going on with that game. Weirdly enough, in June Nacon changed the Steam page’s release date from 2020 to Coming Soon and updated the publisher name from Bigben to Nacon. So its not like they forgot the game existed.

Is it still coming to Steam? They would have pulled it instead of updating the release date/publishe.

Tried 2 EGS f2p games today.

Diabotical - feels, looks and plays like 100 other f2p games out there, it's okay and a bit fun, but nothing special so I quit
Spellbreak - really like the gameplay with spells and satuff and the art style is great. However I don't know if it was a server issue or not, but the match I played there was only 44 players and most of them are either bots or kids playing having no idea what to do cause I won my first match (it's a battle royale) and I've never played it before. Might be back in the future, but right now it's both too easy and 45 players is not enough so I quit.

If you add Rocket League to your library between September 23 and October 23 you will receive a $10 EGS coupon that is redeemable on games and add-ons $14.99 and up. Plus, once you download and launch the game, you'll instantly get two new items in your inventory: Sun Ray Boost and Hot Rocks Trail!
Epic giving out yet another coupon lol. Epic is opening to more multiplatform releases and probably realizes nobody is gonna buy anything on their garbage store over Steam or GOG unless they have a $10 coupon.



Also kinda funny they're doing a Fortnite themed season when you still play Rocket League through Steam.
