    On the bright side, if this is the new standard for games then I'm going to have some extra cash and a lot more free time.

    I am 99.99999999% positive the reason it has the 'early access' tag is so that they can charge you for a free to play game, and charge you more than average.

    Funny how people complain about Steam Early Access and yet the vast majority of the time the game costs LESS in early access then it does after.
    Yeah, the whole thing has gotten nuts. 

    $60 for a new game + $15 for DLC!!! OMG what a rip off!

    $250 for a founder's pack for a F2P game? OMG What an amazing deal, look at all these in-game perks I get!"

    Or better yet:
    $5,000 to support this game on kickstarter? That's so awesome, they'll even let me name an NPC! Can't wait for 5 years to go by!

    The further away a game is from completion, the more it's worth lol.
    what blows my mind is that I am nearly positive the same people loosing their shit over the 'opportunity' to buy Fortnite 'before its released' are likely the very same people who criticize Steam Early Access games and if a game that didnt get the 'hyper hype hype' seal of approval was on Steam EAG that was to be free to play but charged they would have likely called fucking congress
    Considering that this game is a lot better than most early access games on steam its more of a non-issue here.  While the "secret" 250 dollar pack is really ridiculous, the buy in for fortnite is relatively inexpensive considering that the game is pretty much a full featured game now, whereas most early access games on steam are barely passable as games at all.

    It's all about the companies putting out the games,  little indie companies are terrible at delivering, they stay in early access forever.  

    But when Larian Studio put out Divinity Original Sin 2, they already had much of the first act playable, and since they actually produced something of note before, I knew it was a smart buy.

    It's the same with Epic.  They are a developer that shows results.  
    Not to mention Epic Games gives out hundreds of thousands of dollars in developer grants, allows free use of the Unreal Engine, maintains and provides course work for people interested in game development and supports academic projects around the world.

    ... what a bunch of assholes...
  • Closed Beta Begins - Check Out this New Trailer - Escape from Tarkov Videos - MMORPG.com

    I have been playing this for months now. It's still missing several core features and over half the planned content, not to mention bugs and network performance issues that will hinder any testing of new implementations until they're fixed.

    Yet they insist on entering beta... it's a word that means absolutely nothing to them, so it shouldn't mean anything to you either.

    edit; I forgot to say that despite all of that... this train wreck of a game is still quite incredible.

    I am a person.
    I like to play games.

    All these labels we put on ourselves and others.... why?

    Introvert, extrovert - ambivert? According to what standard, what baseline? 

    Anti social - balanced social..? Again - what's the baseline?

    These are purely subjective terms without defining a clear baseline.

    How can one even begin to go down this rabbit hole, and more importantly why?

    So, just put you down as complicated? :neutral:
