Would be great if R* gave everyone who buys on their launcher a steam key in Dec. I doubt Valve will care and they will push a big # to Red Dead @ launch this way too.

Either way I'm already over the dumb month long exclusivity bs.

November is Death Stranding and Outer Worlds month anyways. I'll play RDR2 on Steam in Dec. Too much stuff in my backlog too so I am not tempted in anyway for now.

I played Book of Demons on gamepass and I have to say I loved everything about it but the on rails movement is a deal breaker. I really tried to give it a chance, played for like 4 hours but in the end I hated it.

Month is literally nothing. Can't say I have missed any of EGS exclusives either and those has been going for 10+ months.
Epic really wasted their money on this.

Since, it will be $20 more expensive on EGS (well and on Steam, too), why anyone sane would pay extra to have download installer via EGS for double disc space usage (unless they get it fixed before that)?

Main reason of their own launcher is to avoid 30%...25...20% cut on MTXN, giving Steam keys would prevent that.

Ouch. RDR2 is R$239.00 over here in Brazil, so USD$ 58.33. That's some great regional pricing :p

Guess I'm waiting a lot more than one month for it.

Also, for some reason, the red and crossed price on the Special edition page is the same one as the ultimate edition (R$299.90 or $73.2) so it appears Rockstar put some great attention when setting the prices for us.

I have seen the stuf about Hong Kong forever it feels like and I still don't know what it's all about. I have read something about Honk Kong being a colony or something have to do with it.

1) Hong Kong City used to be owned by the UK through a lease agreement made during the colonial era
2) Because of that Hong Kong and the rest of China became two very different societies with Hong Kong having different economies, currencies, laws blablabla and generally being more "western" in its culture than the rest.
3) Lease agreement expired 1997, making Hong Kong part of China again
4) Because Hong Kongese hated that, china allowed them to continue to operate seperately from the rest of china, with its own politics, laws etc. etc.
5) China is now threatening that sovereignity - to the surprise of no one - and Hong Kongese don't want that.

That's the rough TL;DR

Thank you.

Also, fuck the Chinese government.

In case anyone didn't see it yet:

This could get Overwatch banned in China considering what happened to Winnie the Pooh. I hope it doesn't have any backlash on Mei's VA though.

Honestly hoping it does get banned. Maybe then Blizzard will make the LGBT content in OW more prominent instead of having it exclusively shown through easily censorable outlets.

Elise Zhang must be fucking pissed/afraid her character is being used that way.
She's pro-government, so she's probably pissed. Which is delicious.

102,000+ upvotes on the video by the way in case people didn't notice. It's already the most-upvoted post in the history of the /r/HongKong subreddit. Blizzard out here playing 7D Chess. Piss everybody off so much with a banning that they send hordes of people to /r/HongKong and bring even more eyes onto the situation.

Totally not what happened, but it's a funny Streisand effect to the extreme. Blizzard China could have just let blitzchung say his harmless statement, and we would have all forgotten in a day. Instead, by banning him, they brought more eyes onto the situation than ever before.

Haha just like how Google already does such a good job at predicting my search results. I type in Reset and guess what always shows up? Reset Apple ID...... I don't have an iPhone visit Era a lot... Oh the Apple ID thing is always the first thing that pops up.



To be fair there will also be Steam China and yes it's a separate launcher but I guess still technically counts?

I plan to move my 120GB SSD to my dad's PC. Probably will get m.2 nvme 500gb. Any brand recommendation except Samsung?
Crucial is pretty good from my usage of it. I don't think SSDs have that much difference between different brands but I'm not sure.

Yea those reddit videos all auto-played for me (the original and inside the quotes) at full volume for me as well, and they do NOT do that on actual reddit.

Yeah, I'm planning on getting a Switch soon too, any recommendations aside from the typical Zelda and Mario? (which are more or less the only things I know from Nintendo)
