GamingThread Epic Games Store tops $680 million in player spending and over 100 million users (free games promotion will continue through 2020)
Reason User Warned: Community generalization
This is totally me -- I don't talk about pc games as much in general, but after a bunch of embarrassing epic exclusive threads (especially ooblets!) i wrote you guys off as weird/toxic for good. Plus I'm honestly more interested in talking about business and politics than I am games usually, and egs threads are a good intersection of that.This kind of thing happens constantly! Games (and movies) are a little different because the product is this big name marketed thing, but stores definitely make exclusive deals with suppliers (using x company's coffee beans for Starbucks Whatever Flavor, and precluding that company from selling to competitors,) and stores feature exclusive and timed exclusives with new products, fashion designers, etc, all the time. The analogy is a rough, I admit, and it wouldn't happen with kellogs, but this kind of selling to is absolutely a real thing in every industry.

GamingThread This forum's attitude toward shady game purchases is baffling
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Advocating piracy over multiple posts
More harmful to the residents of the region, yeah. About equally harmful to the company -- you're breaking tos and preventing a real sale to the company, and companys dont have feelings or experiences so you should just pirate the game and spare the people who are actually being victimized.

GamingThread Iranian gamers unable to access Anthem or Apex Legends due to sanctions
Reason User banned (3 days): off-topic trolling
yiiiiikes. also wow this forum loses its mind over the injustice when a game is exclusive to one storefront but completely brushes it off when an entire nation isn't allowed to play a game because of decades of violent imperialist posturing and sanctions by the usa? (not to mention the us's role in assassination and sponsorship of coups that the current political situation there)

GamingThread Satisfactory removed from Steam to be announced as Epic Store game
Reason User Warned: Platform Warring / Antagonistic Behavior
this is like the definition of competition. What storefronts offer games is . how the games get the money is a matter of implementation. Anyway: good, fuck steam. Not paying any developers for exclusivity ever, the super predatory % cuts, and the clearing house "any game can sell here as long as we get our % of it, fuck off to anybody small wanting front page placement" are all examples of steams anti-developer policies. You kids can live with missing out on a game or two, or, heaven forbid, buying it from one bad storefront instead of another bad storefront, if it means healthier and more consistent pay for indie devs.
