  1. To be fair how many of those 85 million signed up for Fortnite and have never bought a single game on the store? I am in no way against competition, my preferred platform is gog.com not Steam, but I have yet to see a single thing about this affair that promises anything good for me as a consumer. Also this narrative that Steam is somehow shit now baffles me. The integrated controller support is simply fantastic, being able to shift-tab to access all the thousands of community guides and help topics is brilliant. Being able to read reviews to get user impressions of games is very important to me, the fact that a handful get reviewed bombed by idiots doesn't invalidate the thousands of games where it doesn't happen. Having a place to upload screenshots and videos is nice, Steam workshop has worked very well for me as well. Those are just a few things that Steam provides which I make use of, that doesn't include achievements, trading cards or anything else. Now I'm expected to buy from a much, much inferior store so the publishers can make more money of which they will pass zero savings on to me. How is this a good deal for me? Epic has their road map but I'm talking about now not some best case scenario in the future.
  2. This is exactly the opposite of competition for consumers though. We don't have a choice in where to buy these games, you have to go through a very bare bones store that has had security issues in the recent past. If it was truly competition you would be able to choose to buy it from Steam or from the Epic store or from gog.com etc Are the publishers passing on any of the reduced cut Epic takes to the consumer?
  3. How will they integrate adverts into this is my question, this is google after all. An advert when you start the game and maybe one very 30-45 minutes or something? of course I'm sure you will be able to buy a premium subscription to play without ads...

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    That's my plan. I've been playing around with the console since last night, gotta say I'm pretty impressed so far. The UI is easy to navigate and seems snappy enough, I have no idea if that will change as I add more apps etc, and I really like the controller. Is the Sony gold wireless headset, the one at £69.99, recommended?

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    Looking forward to it but I may play Uncharted first. It seemed like a good time to get a PS4, there are a lot of very good games available at very good prices now.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    I just pulled the trigger on my first PS4, I haven't even played on one before, but I'm off work recovering from an operation and I want to play some big, cinematic blockbusters. I bought the Pro package with Red Dead 2 along with the Uncharted collection, Uncharted 4 and the The Last of us remastered which should keep me occupied for a bit. Strangely the game I'm least excited about is RDR 2, I've never managed to get into a GTA game before. Should be arriving later this evening.

    The Saturn Appreciation Thread

    I just realized I've never played on a Saturn. In fact I've never even seen one in person or knew anyone that had one.
  8. Oh and it's an amazing Zelda machine. Zelda 1, Zelda 2, A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Minish Cap, Breath of the Wild and the 2 DS Zelda games can all be played on it. Add in a 3ds and you can play just about every Zelda released. Like Mario Bros? The Wii U has you covered, same with Fire Emblem, Metroid, Castlevania and more. A fantastic collection of GBA games, some of which are expensive now, that you can play on TV or even better just use the gamepad like a big Gameboy.

    Xbox One X

    Tempting, with 3 months of gamepass you wouldn't even need to buy a game.
  10. It's also the best way to play Wii games on a HD TV, I always found its HDMI output sharper than component from an original Wii.

    NFL and NCAA Football 2018

    I'm not sure if Flacco will be much of an upgrade. I realise he won a superbowl before I became interested in the NFL but I've never seen anything special from him. Perhaps he will have a point to prove and raise his game now?

    NFL and NCAA Football 2018

    There is so much more to a play than you see on the broadcast, we need this done for every game.

    The Wii Appreciation Thread

    Buying a game, bringing it home then putting it in your console and being able to play immediately is one thing I really miss.

    Just picked up a PS Vita....

    Don't forget about the PSone classics on the store, the Vita's screen does a fabulous job of displaying them.
