Enhance acts like EGS doesn't exist either (but there's a buy button on the site, possibly because it was the only place it was available for PC earlier on).
Tetris Effect: Connected isn't on EGS, it's a Windows Store exclusive until Summer (June more or less) and then Connected will release on Steam/EGS.

Safe to say my interest in Tetris Effect has well and truly passed.
It's breathtaking in VR, but the fuckery with this game and exclusivity has really killed it, which is a huge shame.

I get maybe having one line of exclusivity, such as PS4 and EGS, but they seem to be taking moneyhats from everyone.

I would not be surprised if a further feature/content update rolls along and they do another 6-12 months of exclusivity, screwing the owners on Windows Store, EGS, Oculus and PS4.

Basically, their message seems to be that once you've bought the game, you are a second class customer.

Wtf, playtime is still gone for me. There has been 2 posts/threads on r/epicgamespc about it were others reported the same the last few days, but seems like mods there removed then (don't think tech difficulties threads are allowed there) and I can't find anything elsewhere.

This is really shit. Nothing from Epic if they know about this issue.

In a promising sign for fans of Fortnite giant Epic, Qualcomm currently hopes to support the Epic Games Store app on its portable at launch — meaning the long-awaited Android app may finally be nearing release.

Unless they get Nintendo to release games on this thing, it just going to die like every single portable android released so far, people really overestimate Fortnite popularity.

Could be a nice niche Emulator device tho'.

I'm downloading it on Arc, hoping I don't have to login with and Epic account, game looks good.

Edit: Played a bit, game is fun, no Epic account needed so far.

FUCK EPIC!
Today i wanted to log into my EGS account. I was a captch challenge with dice. I was supposed to choose the pictures in which the dice showed the number 14. My eyesight is not the best so i have only managed to "solve" 4/10 captchas and because i was to slow with the fifth captcha i "won" this:

Yikes! Not quite fast enough.
Try to answer before
too much time
runs out!

Try again!


NO. FUCK YOU!!!

Genshin Impact is probably coming to EGS.
Probably because Epic won't take a penny from them in gacha transactions. It literally costs them nothing to upload their launcher to EGS and have the rest of the game download as normal. I doubt it's going to do anything like hook into Epic's services or what have you.

Yeah I'm aware. Still a pretty big get for Epic though.

Maybe they should actually commit to a stupid platform (I mean the game format, not store) at some point? All their games should have been such, an ever expanding catalogue of tables and improvements, but on Steam they're up to Pinball FX3 and now the new thing will be just Pinball FX again? And the Star Wars tables recently announced will be a separate thing but also dlc for some of the existing releases? Which Ones? FX3? FX2 VR? Or? Wut? Idk :suicide-blob:

Can't get exclusivity money if it's update to the same game :p

I really don't think it is. Who is going to bother to use an unpopular client/launcher to download a F2P game that's available without a client?

If they make the Epic client a requirement to play the game going forward that's a different story, but somehow I very much doubt they'd needlessly tie themselves to the store for no good reason. To me this just looks like they're taking a "why not?" approach.

Epic is so predictable, JFC xdddddd

this is top 20 since week after KH announcement, no changes (that's up to 21th of March)



March 21 - March 25


As always, when a moneyhatted game is going to release, a few days earlier, it goes up directly to top 3 hahaha
Also, try to analyze the changes, it's always amazing to see how crazy the manual changes are.

Surprised they found 25 games that actually sold a copy. Ancestors that high, lolololololol

You've failed in life if you are below Ancestors in the sales charts.

They reversed the top 20 to the previous state, latest picture no longer represents the "official" top 25, it's back to 20 and to the previous 5+ weeks old top with F2P games.

Absolutely unbelievable, first time I see this shit. :upside-down-face:

I'm out of the loop, do you meant that their top 25 list is arbitrary, manually updated and not even necessarily reflecting reality?

The moment I realized that Shenmue 3 was on the top spot on the EGS top seller list for 2 whole weeks before the list changed was the moment I realized the top seller list is bullshit.
