    Announcement gone?

    Anyway noticed that there was a mystery game listed on the Epic Games Store app.



  • This just feels like "bribery" to get people to switch from Steam to the Epic Games Store. Felt kind of the same way with RDR2 being released there a month before Steam. Personally, not interested.

    @Jitnaught Nothing can drag me away from Steam. I'll get it just because I can.



  • @QBit07 Me neither. Not even going to get it either. and no way in hell I would set up 2 factor auth with epic store. They had countless of security breaches which all those infos are being sold at blackmarket.. So be aware of that befoe giving them your real phone number.

  • @QBit07 Valve never had such amount of data breaches. I'm not stopping you though, if you feel comfortable and safe enough to share your phone number with them, go ahead and do so :D Not like it will harm me in any way lol :D

  • @QBit07 I didn't ignore anything. Considering even the FBI Cyber-Security Division had data breaches, it would be very unlikely for Valve to not to hve any data breaches at all right?

    I am talking about the amount/interval of breaches. epic store is something new and it had too many security breaches in such short time intervals.

    If you compare the total number of data breaches Valve and Epic had, yes Valve's will obviously be higher since it's a company for decades. However if you include the intervals in the calculations to make the results reflect the realistic magnitude, it will be very obvious epic's security system is just shitty crap.. If Valve had the same security, it's total security breach amount would have been depucled in it's long lifetime by now.

    While evaluating a data, please consider including vital factors as well so the results can reflect most realistic.

  • @QBit07 Yes. As for not giving the information however, it says 2FA required at the main page. Which I believe you can only set up 2FA with a mobile phone number.

    But anywho. I don't really need another GTA anyway. Definetly not going to install their shitty launcher either :P I played the online quite a very long time and not even playing with mod menus gives me any fun anymore. I have found a lot lot more fun at singleplayer with lots of mods. Sure installing mods and especially modifying them to my liking is very tedious sometimes. However I really do like the freedom of being able to use anything I want and love when the game becomes realistic.

    Obviously it's not going to last forever but when that day comes, most probably Cyberpunk will be out by then and I will be playing it <3

  • @QBit07 I haven't installed because I don't want that thing to create a mark in my hard drive. Although of course I'm a very curious person by nature and checked it on YouTube quite a couple of times. So it's crappy. Oh and found something so funny. People who bought Metro Exodus, actually went to Steam's forums for the problems they are experiencing with the game they bought from epic store :DD Really found that funny a lot :D It's very obvious they don't even have a proper help support since people seek hope in Steam :DDD

  • @QBit07 Aurora is actually right. There's some one from twitter did some investigation on the launcher and found out there's some kind of malware-like protocol leeching in the system

    the original twitter was deleted and there's some Taiwanese backed up

  • @QBit07 Not having a forum actually matters a lot. When people have a problem, they first head over to the forum of the game they bought from and reddit. To see if anyone else having it as well. If it wasn't that necessary, why would so many people seek help in Steam Forums even for the games they bought outside Steam? Having a support channel not enough. Clearly Steam, Ubisoft, EA saw that themselves and decided to create a forum and keep it alive even today.

    and actually I must say, for a person says "Nothing can drag me away from Steam. I'll get it just because I can." you seem to be overly protective of epic store :P

    @floydandsome Precisely mate. It's their digital corona..

  • @QBit07 Of course it can't be an actual malware, that would violate the law. But somewhere gray in the law is still acceptable in the country like this one. But again, if you are willing to take the risk, have it your way mate

  • @QBit07 You just opened both Uplay and Origin and found no forums at all. Right... and this is the guy who calls me "ignorant"...... Just open the Google, you know the famous search engine, and type ea forums, then type ubisoft forums. Too lazy? Here they are then..
    https://answers.ea.com/t5/Origin-Client-Web-Technical/bd-p/origin-technical-issues-en
    https://forums.ubisoft.com/

    Unreal Engine is a game engine. You don't really ask help about things that are not technical related in a game engine forum but still whatever. Good they have an engine forum, bravo to them.

    I also don't appreciate it would keep getting my location info, my steam game library, my network process or such..

    I'm a quite openminded person. However I have my personal preferences as well. I don't like the Fornite game, however I liked and very appreciated the idea behind it. Instead of making a game with shitty graphics like many other game companies do and promote them via streamers, they decided to make a similar type of game with perfect graphics and unreal engine is one of the excellent game engines as well. I don't like the Fornite itself because it's not my type of game, I'm not saying it's a bad game, just not my type.

    Same as their launcher as well. I'm not saying it's a terrible launcher or terrible store, I just don't like it myself and that's all. and the reason behind this they made that store as an opposition against Steam. and I don't appreciate such idea. Not because I like Steam, I hate ubisoft and uplay (their not-really-existing refund policy, slow launcher, the launcher keeps opening itself after each time I quit game and so on). and I still wouldn't appreciate if the Epic would be an opposition against Ubisoft either. If you are doing something, do it for your own good like how they did Fortnite. They didn't really aim to kill any games. They just did a good game with very good graphics.

    If they would make their own store with the same idea of Fortnite, I would very much appreciated it. but all these ads, promotions, early accesses and such, they are very childish to me. Just another human type who tries to stand on the ladder by kicking everyone else to ground while the ladder could carry everyone... Yes I know it's utopic, but this is what a humanity should be. They don't have to fight with each others over the utmost nonsense things..

    Anyways, I feel like this conversation being prolonged too far and going off the topic slowly. I hope since you know I'm not the person who you think I am, you can maybe feel we can focus on other things instead.

    Yes gta 5 is free on Epic, I will neither get it nor stop whoever wish to..

  • @QBit07 You are very nice to meet with yourself on the mirror <3



  • @Aurora11 Can we agree that Epic sucks on the grounds of no mod support?
