Not watching it. Epic can go to hell as far as I'm concerned.
Ge0force needing a few tranquillizers today because of the Epic PC Gamer conference. :grimacing-face:

You know what, I wasn't going to, but I'll probably watch it, since I should be having a snack around that time, so I'll watch it for the Evil Genius 2 reveal (which shouldn't be an exclusive, but we never know), and so I can curse a bit with my fellow Meta friends in the chat. ;)

Haha I'm fine, thanks. 😂

Of course I still need to release my frustrations from time to time on this forum, but I'm caring less about Epic (and pc gamers' shilling for them) each day. In the past few weeks, I have been reassured that I will have plenty of great games to play, while ignoring Epic completely.

That's the spirit! :highfiveblob:
Who cares about Epic? Not when we still have great titles launching on Steam each day, like my most recent purchase:


Yeah, I couldn't resist sharing that I just purchased a Chinese, totally illegal, OpenBor game based on the Double Dragon franchise, because why not? :grimacing-face:
Someone at Valve was sleeping on the job. :whistle:

I love DD! Let me know if it's worth it 👍
It's not completely pointless, but I can't use a controller with it, and it's very rough along the edges.
And again, Chinese only.

If you want an enjoyable Double Dragon fan game, check this one:

It even has WWF/WWE classic wrestlers in them, for some reason! :p

I am at work and I intent to watch the Epic Gamer show unless something stupid happens (at work).
I want to see into the eyes of the people which have chosen to imprison their products and associate with a-holes.
I wish to see their desperation while they are booed but I also think that Epic's wallet is deep enough to buy louder YEAAAHs than the ones that annoyed us during the Beth show.
I want to watch how much dignity Sweeney's dollars can buy and I want to feel sad for them.

I'm just hoping Keanu Reeves shows up, and tells us again we are all breathtaking. :smiling-face-with-smiling-eyes:

I'm in a hamburger restaurant and the guy next to me just ordered a double-cheese burger without cheese 😂
What's wrong with that? I don't like cheese, and I keep ordering burgers with just the bread and burger, nothing else. :p

welp, the reason the maker of dota chess didn't want to directly make dota chess a thing becomes clear now
This seems like an incredibly stupid idea. Most autochess players are Chinese. EGS isnt popular at all in China. Whats stopping Valve from eating them alive with Underlords?

The mobile version.
EDIT: Also Valve taking forever to actually release a product.

Under no circumstances should it be acceptable to take a game that was promised to people who backed it to a different platform without their consent, but it’s happened three times now. Absolutely disgusting.
The most damning thing is the silence of the games media.

Not that I except an ounce of integrity or a single hard question to ever pass their lips, but still.

Both Auto Chess and Valve's Auto Chess already lost out.

Riot is adding an Auto Chess variant to League of Legends (which has like a hundred million Chinese players already) within the month. And it's going to have a Ranked mode almost right away as well.

Guess Auto Chess figures they might as well make some money from EGS since they already lost that race.

Don't let little things like reason or facts or physical reality get in the way of a good Epic story,
You mean gossip. leave the moronic 'fake news'-like rhetoric to EGS and their ilk, and stop twisting things just to satisfy your own prejudice.
The 2009 Ghostbusters game was delisted due to license years ago, the 2016 game was delisted on Jan. 30th this year, which IIRC is around the time that Acti usually drops licenses etc.

Just talking to a mate on Steam who backed Shenmue 3 and he's absolutely fuming. He's not even someone who hates Epic as his tastes are mostly for games that aren't even for games Epic has or wants on their store but he feels like he's been completely blindsided as it was never a choice or even mentioned before. Hope he can get the refund he wants.

I was expecting Auto Chess to EGS, since it took a long time for anything to come out about the discussions between Valve and the game's developers.

I'm just glad that Valve is doing their own version of the game and didn't just pass on it.

10 minutes of Outerlords (mobile version) gameplay leaked online yesterday. Seems like they're going fast with it.
I didn't know this. Just watched a video. I wonder if this will be the first Valve game to be in early access?

Thank you Sega for having asinine regional pricing on Shenmue 1+2 HD so I never had the chance to actually become invested into the series before this broke out as I was waiting on a sale.

Go fuck yourselves, Yu Suzuki and Deep Silver.

I am so mad about Shenmue III.

So. Fucking. Furious.

I'd just graduated from university when the campaign had begun. I was broke and unemployed, looking for work. But I'd managed to set a bit of cash aside (about $100) to buy any games that might interest me throughout the rest of the year, assuming my job search didn't go well. I was planning to just spend it on Steam or PSN sales and get a load of stuff for cheap.

Then E3 rolled around and the Shenmue III Kickstarter launched, and every penny I could spare went into it. It wasn't much, but it was well over the odds what I'd normally pay for a game. That's how much I love Shenmue. I didn't play any new games until my birthday later that year, and shortly after I did find a job, but I was broke as fuck for about 4-5 months for that game.

I am going to claim back every fucking penny I gave to them. Every single one. I will resort to every trick I can to get it. PayPal disputes, credit card charge backs, you name it.

Auto Chess will be an EGS exclusive.
Good luck with that, since what made DOtA Auto Chess popular is the DOTA name and characters.

I don't think it will be like Defense of the Ancients from WarCraft to DotA II. After all, we were playing DotA for almost a decade before Valve gave Ice Frog a job. Of course, Guinsoo and that other guy who makes LEague was a different story....
Like why do we even say "EGS Exclusive." That's marketing.

They should just say "Coming soon to everywhere but Steam because **** Valve."

I know how you feel.
I spent hundreds of € collecting rare materials (demos, japanese vhs promo tapes, movie DVD, different versions of the games) throughout the years, and I dropped around $300 on the campaign. :cautious:
Even "funnier", not long ago I even crowdfunded a documentary on the series.

Oh well. fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Needless to say, I'm not pleased, but since I don't suffer from short term memory, all parties involved are not seeing a further cent from me.

Can someone list the games/devs/publishers involved in exclusivity deals that were announced at the EGS Gamer Show? I'm already aware of Shenmue 3, and while I don't know the series, Deep Silver is on my blacklist completely from now on.
