The whole EGS saga got me thinking: were devs/pubs required to abide to region pricings and/or discounts on a store? If they were worried about their product being devalued (after a reasonable period of time) on Steam or GOG, then why not refuse to do it?

 
 
 

2 games were taken off EGS until the sales ends because the devs/pubs didn't agreed to be part of it, and one dev jacked the price of their game up mid-sale at one point. Wow, the whole Epic sales were quite an epic (heh) mess. (More on the comments)

 
 
 

Good news, RAGE 2 owners on Steam: Denuvo was finally removed on a recent hotfix. Hope you'll have a more pleasant experience later. Anyway, I need a break. No hard feelings to any of you, I hope. See you all in a week. Or 2 weeks. Or a month. Who knows.

 
 
 

You serious? We all thought the previous Walking Dead games were unavailable for sale on Steam and GOG due to copyright disputes, and I just found out the older ones were delisted off to be sold exclusively on EGS? You fucking serious, Skybound and Epic?


 
 
 

The Telltale documentary is finally here. I heard some people suggested that game prices should shoot up by $20 to counter the problems, but I think that'll barely help both the crunch & management issues. Some questions about California on the comments.



 
 
 

Opinions on John Wick 3: Keanu Reeves should be cast as a ninjitsu sensei on a Japanese movie ASAP, Halle Berry rightfully earned her on-screen role, and it's the best goddamn movie of 2019 by far. Truly an ode to the countless works of stuntmen.

 
 
 
 

Hmm... Would I just ignore it and save some energy for work and sanity, or watch it anyway just to see whether it'll be OK or quite an unpleasant event to behold.


 
 
 
 

(More pics on comments) Epic did more actually good things! Getting the EGS on China (Previously blocked "to protect its employees in the country"), accepting their payment methods, regional pricing by slashing the USD price by half, and most importantly:


 
 
 
 

So not only it is limited to Uplay and Epic Games Store (which Peter somehow didn't mention on the last article), Ghost Recon: Breakpoint also requires constant online connection even for solo plays.


 
 
 

I just watched Detective Pikachu, and it was surprisingly entertaining, in spite of its cliches. It also helps that The Pokemon Company (TPC) had enough experience towards (animated) movies to know what would work on a live-action Pokemon film.

 
 
 

I should replay this game sometime, and I also thank it for getting me into the films too.



 
 
 

Still an entertaining trainwreck to watch after months later.



 
 
 

For anyone missing Enhanced Steam and its functions, there's another continued in-dev version called Augmented Steam, approved by the original add-on creator himself. It's available for both Chrome and Firefox. Links on the comments.


 
 
 

Seen both Avengers: Infinity War at home and Endgame at a theatre (With a friend). The former was a waste of 2.5 hours of my life, but the latter was at least an entertaining 3 hours, albeit with loads of padding and other things that I couldn't pin down.

 
 
 

Seen the Sonic movie trailer, and aside from Sonic doesn't look and sound like Sonic, I was also disappointed that it's on the real world, with the US military involved just to get Robotnik onto the plot, and it has that Woody Woodpecker live-action feel.

 
 
 

Ugh, those nude spammers. They never bother doing their bloody research and determine what is our one true desire of perversion. (Hint: It's not them real-life boobies)


 
 
 
 

So, that one forum recently had its PC threads up on fire (Due to a moderator abruptly leaving, possibly because the EGS topic had taken a toll on him too), and I guess this post summarize how hard it is for any PC community to thrive anywhere.


 
 
 

Oh boy, here it comes. (And consider me guilty as well, as I bought it for really cheap last year too)



 
 
 

The video that finally made me, ironic enough, a Chinese myself (Malaysian of Chinese descent, to be exact), interested in the Three Kingdoms events. Still not interested in any of Koei Tecmo's games (Yes, even Dynasty Warriors) though.



 
 
 

I had enough of Deus Ex: Invisible War. In addition to it being a heavily consolized, dumbed down game, the bloody thing won't even want to run on a discrete graphics card.

 
 
 

So the teaser for Star Wars: Episode IX just came out, and it's OK enough. I'm willing to take one last ride on the theatres before I'm done with the franchise as a whole for good. (As in not keeping track on any other bloody canon events)



 
 


About Rudorlfone of us since 10:24 PM on 11.26.2012



Some dude who was destined to filmmaking, but end up being sucked into the world of video games. And now he's trying to crawl his way out of his own insecurities, shrieking-violet, and self-despair. Time will tell whether he'll made it out alive.

Rumours is that he often communicate with his imaginary girlfriend (Probably is some redhead chick from Persona 3, a video game he didn't even played before) within his mind, but even he wasn't sure.

Wait, we're supposed to talk about video games, right?

Anyway, I have a 2013 mid-spec laptop, and too broke to even get a desktop till this day. Casual PC Gamer to the core.
