Thread Gears of War 5 confirmed for Steam release
Windows Store isn't the platform for them. Xbox/Xbox live is. With Xcloud coming out and their Game pass push the steam releases are almost irrelevant for them. Console owners are going to buy it from MS , PC gamers who wouldn't have touched the game because of MS store will get it on Steam or will sign up for Gamepass. So the games sell more overall which is great for MS.

I apologize if that came off as an insult to anybody that was not my intention but it is kinda of frustrating seeing the greedy devs take on these deals , the same way I am sure its frustrating as a consumer to see the deals.

And consumers are not mischaracterizing developers ? I see quite a bunch of greedy developers comments here. Yes the developers are looking for money because you know they have a studio to run, people to pay. The Epic deals are too good to pass on. And its not like they are asking you to pay more or there is any other barrier of entry to EGS other than downloading a client.

Agreed. I played AO on their service and it was pretty good but that was capped at 30 fps and there was very apparent input lag which is tolerable for a game like AC but would stand out even more for more fast paced titles.

Fanboyism is all about the boxes and the boxes are going to go away eventually regardless of how XCloud does. IMO MS is being smart in going in early . MS has always lagged behind the trend and it has cost them dearly. It definitely means they will take a hit on hardware sales but they are big enough to take it and the bigger picture is more important to them.

Its not disingenuous at all. If Ms decides to bring their games to multiple platforms and people have a problem with it just because people who dont own the hardware they do get to enjoy these games then it is fanboyism, plain and simple. You still get to enjoy those games but so do potentially millions of others. About the boxes going away, its progress. Music, Movies, TV everything has gone that way. PC games is almost completely digital now anyways , streaming is just the next step. It ok to be apprehensive about the tech but like you said the current way of playing games has an expiration date

Thread Anthem |OT| GaaS Effect
I am a huge fan of Bioware and like Anthem. I think its off to a solid start but anybody who is out here defending the game's bugs is in denial. There are a ton of bugs and many of them quite serious. Allowing people to try this game out when over a 1000 bug fixes are pending in a day one fix is ridiculous. This seems like EA going every game must have early access no matter what even though the devs probably know its a bad idea. People have different tastes and this kinda game is certainly polarizing especially for folks who are used a certain kind of Bioware game. A lot of folks here are exaggerating how bad this game is imo. I am going to say a lot of that is down to bias. Whether its EA hate or the hate for GaaS games. The story is not earth shattering but its good for a game like this. I am having a much better time that Destiny or even early Warframe. Games like this will evolve over time and get better now whether EA gives it a chance to evolve is the big question.

There needs to be a disclaimer in the title saying the prices arent final especially since they specifically said they made changes to the economy.

Nothing wrong with that imo.
