Epic is letting devs keep more money. They have said they are willing to completely abandon the exclusive deals if Steam agrees to give devs the same split they do.

I honestly don't get the hate on Epic. They function of the store is improving, they offer free games all the time, and are paying the people making the games more than Valve. Gabe Newell sitting on his mountain of cash is going to need to deal with them eventually.

Free games can be had at pretty much any PC game store/client.

What about all of the privacy and security issues their client has had? Maybe it's because of my job, but that doesn't really sit well with me.

Epic basically getting 6 months of exclusivity.

Itll be available on Steam April 2020

Oh nice. I didn't know that. I rarely buy games right away anyway

Steam has had its share of high profile security concerns. It's mostly conspiracy theories regarding Tencents stake in Epic (Tencent is publicly traded for the record, not owned by the Chinese government).

Epic has the cash flow to build out features. If they do that I have no problems at all with them as a company. Lots of stupid kids got their Fortnite accounts breached by scams, but that could have happened anywhere. They were shockingly simple scams.

Reviews are dropping.

Few people have bashed the "crude humor", they clearly wouldn't have been fans of the other games either... Actual descriptions of the game sound exactly like what I hoped for.

Crude humor? That is the best part. And loot.

Yeah, that reviewer seemed upset that there wasn't more emotion like in the Telltale game.

I’m enjoying this game, but this loot nerf sucks big. Just beat the second vault monster and got nothing purple or gold from him or the vault. That is lame considering how long and big the boss fight ended up being.
I’m a level 31 FL4K with an eridium skag buddy.

There's reportedly a few-week-long event that increases legendary loot drops starting this week.
