  1. I checked my library, and both Torchlight and Slime Rancher are there.
  2. That is still around? I thought they would have shut it down around 2014.
  3. From Ars Technica: Angry Shenmue III backers can get refunds after Epic Game Store move Tim Sweeney says Epic will cover refund costs to preserve "development funding." FULL ARTICLE HERE
  4. This will only work in areas that have extremely high-speed/low-latency Internet. With some of the Internet providers talking caps on data transferred, I foresee problems.
  5. Still a better love story than.... oh wait.... this is a sports game from EA Games..... nevermind.... Watch this ad from EA Games for a product you don't really need.... get a free loot box....
  6. Actions have consequences. Sometimes, those consequences are unplanned, unintended, and unexpected.
  7. After the implementation of the refund system due to an lawsuit, one of the key reasons for visiting the Steam sale on a regular basis went away, namely the daily or time-limited special, went away.
  8. I will stand by my statement..... "It's business. Nothing personal." At the end of the day, it's the money that talks, and if Epic is offering a bigger cut than Steam in exchange for exclusivity, guess what the decision makers decide. Don't like it? Don't buy it. That's the ultimate deciding factor. If anything, the gaming platform that we should be sending our love to is GOG. If nothing else, we should be supporting the older (or "classic") games which inspired the games that are out there today. I still do not understand the love-fest for Valve/Steam. If anything, Steam has grown complicit because it is the dominant distribution platform.
  9. Sounds more like the rights have expired to the base source material.
  10. If you don't like it, don't spend the money. The total amount I have spent at the Epic Store: $0. Zip. Zero. Nada. Part of this is because I feel that spending $60 on a game is too much when, in a few months time, the price decreases to a more acceptable point, part of this is because I have too many unplayed games. Steam also launched in September, 2003. There was no such thing as achievements or cloud saving which is taken for granted nowadays. They did, however, have a janky backup utility where you can back up to CDs or DVDs (!!!) which hasn't really been improved for the modern environment where I have a FreeNAS server with 27TB of storage sitting in my closet. Game backups were really important to me when the best I could do in download speeds was 20Mbps, and some of the games are HUGE. Can I easily backup a game using Uplay, Origin, Battle.net, GOG, or Epic? Nope. (Note: I moved to an area that has Gigabit download speeds, so I'm no longer backing up my game downloads). The same complaints I hear about the Epic store is the same complaints I have heard about Origin (EA Games) and UPlay (Ubisoft). In those cases, I suspect that Origin and UPlay were set up partially to appease the big retailers who were hesitant about carrying PC software which sets up a competing storefront, and partially to avoid the Steam tax.
  11. How is this any different than pre-order DLC, CDs, or DVDs that are exclusive releases to a particular retailer? Or TV shows/movies that are available only on a specific streaming platform? What I'm suspecting is that Epic is giving the publisher a higher percentage of sales in exchange for a exclusive release window. I don't see anything that says that title XXX is never going to show up on Steam, just not at release date.
  12. It's nothing personal. It's just business. Why are people getting worked up over which store a game initially appears in? We need some strong competition to the Steam store, and Epic is finally providing it.
  13. For Oriental Empires, the save game location is %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Oriental Empires\Saved Games
  14. For the game Smoke and Sacrifice, the opens and save game location is %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Solar Sail Games\Smoke and Sacrifice
  15. For the game Poi, the save game location is %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\PolyKid\Poi .
