This time-limited licensing is such bullshit. Basically building a self-destruct timer into the product.

Well, this is a clear-cut case of copyright infringement. Valve just did what any sane company would have done.

Quoting: MercifulBossLooks fake. RTX on/off doesn't have anything to do with it (or little). They redid the textures significantly. Now if it showed dynamic lighting with the old lighting, then we'd be talking.
Even the models look different. This is more like a complete remaster, which does look nice, but nothing that cannot be done without ray tracing.

Quoting: tpauIt would be cool if third party platforms could hook deep in steam OS and show their shop and game library directly instead of only adding shortcuts.
Having them es external apps feels a bit clunky, be it ea, ubi, bnet, Lutris, emudeck or heroic.
I too wish they added proper desktop (e.g. multi-window) application support in gaming mode.

However adding explicit support for other shops would be undermining their own shop, and would be a maintenance and support nightmare. Just think how often things like the EA app breaks on Steam games, because EA does not give a crap. Also could invite all sorts of legal issues.

Quoting: Purple Library GuyI guess if they switched it to "x.com" that would cause the apocalypse (or at least the Enemy Unknown).

They do own x.com sadly.
I was actually just making a bad XCOM joke.
Imagine when they come across x.org.

As someone who likes horror games, but have never played any of the Resident Evil games, I am tempted.

Where would one even start though? Just play them in chronological order, or it doesn't matter? Any advice?

Quoting: HJThat isn't Prey though, it's Prey (2017)
How about a nice game of Doom or Tomb Raider instead?
