Why so much hate?
Is it that hard to click one extra button?
I would think it would be good that developers would get more money personally.

Is it because you don't get more imaginary achievements?
I really just don't get it? I mean how lazy can hermits be?

I know this is weak bait, but meh, I'm bored and suffering from insomnia, so I'm just going humour you a smidgen with a little hard facts. I could post the slightly obsolete and non-impartial but still-relevant chart again, but I'm on mobile right now. Instead, I'm just going to say this:

The Epic Games Store still doesn't have a shopping cart. And if you buy too many games in quick succession, for example, as you are encouraged to do during a recently-concluded sale, anti-fraud kicks in and slams the door in your face.

/thread

Also, Phoenix Point and Shenmue III. That mess is probably going kill crowd-funded games. Well, at least ones that aren't porn.

Lets see..... anti consumer practices, missing features, security issues,forcing people to use their service for 3rd party titles that they happen to bribe suddenly and without warning. Preventing people from using any other 3rd party service for the said games were once on.

No one who only fucks around with plug and play boxes exclusively gets to call anybody lazy.

Why are console only beggars incapable of doing even the simplest research?

Must be part of the same personality flaw that makes them think whining here justifies their sub $500 purchase 5 years ago and miserable gaming situation

You seem very bitter, hopefully the sun shines on you today and washes all your troubles away :)

@i_p_daily: @fedor: Fanboy wars is against the rules, calling people console or PC beggars is too.

And he derailed the thread and offended a lot of people along with it.

You seem to be unaware of this, but the mods are moderating people that are behaving like this.

I'm a big boy and don't care what anyone on here calls me. If that guy is bitter over consoles and its gamers than it just makes him the sad one.

SW rule #1 never take SW seriously and you will be ok.

Because they dont like the image it paints them in, which is the Fortnight community, which is filled with a lot of whining teenagers, which was what these pc gamer fanboys use to label the xbox live people as.

It's been touched on countless times. No need to rehash the same topic over and over.

@fedor:

Its become a parody. I dont go on youtube much but it looks like its an ongoing series that gets a lot of views. I rarely go on the internet yet somehow i was aware of it.

Thats the pc gamer crowd lmfao. Thats why they dont like the Epic Store, because those people are the image of Fortnight, which is the image of Epic.

1) it's been discussed to death

2) not SW-related. The only thing to come from this was "herms always..." and "oh yeah, well console beggars..." blah blah
