lunixEpic is clearly anti-linux and anti-valve so this was expected.

Yes, the company who make a game engine that is crossplatform is anti-linux.

Can't wait for these quotes to either be taken out of context, or be buried. Epic Bad, even when they say good things that make actual logical sense.

razing32I seriously do hope Epic just burns to the ground.
This exclusives nonsense is harmful to consumers and the last thing we need is to turn PCs into consoles with exclusive stores.

As controversial as this sounds, I don't mind timed exclusives, as the game will appear on another platform/ service eventually. I dislike Epic making former steam games exclusive, but considering there's realistically, no other way they can compete with Valve. Their leverage starts at a better price ratio split thing for devs, and ends with buying up exclusives.

Do I dislike them buying titles after they release (like Rocket league). Of course I do, as that undermines potential purchasers who wanted to get the steam version, and have to get it elsewhere. This is only a net win for epic. The consumer doesn't win when it comes to what Epic and Psyonix are doing.

Something for the weekend: HITMAN 2’s first mission is now free and works great in Steam Play on Linux

Well that went well.

Also, you don't have to have GOTY to get Hitman 2016's levels, Owning the game with all locations bought on steam is enough.
