Sigh... On one hand, I have nothing against (so far...) the Epic Game Store. On the other, I feel bamboozled (was expecting The Outer Worlds on Steam this year), and find the whole timed-exclusive concept (especially on PC :roll: ) stupid, so I think I'll wait it out. Meh.

In other news, discovered yesterday the new Unreal Tournament (seems to have been in some form of development since 2015 or so?).
Despite being labeled as "pre-alpha", it plays quite nice! Found it much more appealing than Quake Champions, and closer to the original UT than to UT 2004. And the announcer is still the same! :sweet: |xox|
No sig due to budget cuts.

Epic's exclusives could end if Steam offers 88 percent revenue share, says Sweeney
...
Now, Sweeney has put forward his requirements for Epic to stop chasing these exclusivity deals: 'If Steam committed to a permanent 88 percent revenue share for all developers and publishers without major strings attached,' Sweeney writes on his personal Twitter, 'Epic would hastily organise a retreat from exclusives (while honouring our partner commitments) and consider putting our own games on Steam.

'Such a move would be a glorious moment in the history of PC gaming, and would have a sweeping impact on other platforms for generations to come. Then stores could go back to just being nice places to buy stuff, rather than the Game Developer IRS.'

Of all the developers to head up a John Wick game, Mike Bithell of Thomas Was Alone, Subsurface Circular and Volume is not one I could have predicted. John Wick Hex also looks like a bit of an oddball, genre-wise. It’s a pseudo-turn-based tactics game, with players planning Keanu Reeves’s every move in order to dodge, parry and shoot his way through each gunfight with maximum style, and minimum damage taken or ammo wasted. There’s no release date yet, but you can get a first peek at the game in the trailer below, plus some screenshots showing off its interface.
No release date yet, but it's an Epic store exclusive.

Oops

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2019 ... g-problems
Yesterday, the Epic Games Store launched its first ever major sale, complete some eye-opening price reductions that almost seemed too good to be true. Well, it turns out many were, as some of the games initially listed in the sale have been pulled from the store, while others have re-jigged their prices several times.
