I think Epic should do one if its sole aim is to have as many exclusives as possible. I don't need to go to the Nike store to buy a pair of Nike trainers so why should have to go to Epic's store to play games by developers they've acquisitioned well after a game's been released? I think EA maybe took some games down from third party online stores when they went all in on Origin, but they were at least games they published. I know Epic give away a lot of free stuff, but they're clearly anti-consumer when it comes down to it, the freebies are just to get people through the door. I know no one cares and most gamers would let Bobby Kotick and Todd Howard sell them and their families into slavery for a pre-order bonus, but, by God, I've known better days.

It will also be free to play on consoles. It's only on PC where they're trying to get one over on Steam.

Gay Ben has been a relatively benevolent monopolist, but he's still a monopolist. It's categorically a bad thing to have one company controlling the overwhelming majority of PC games distribution, even if they do a reasonably good job of it.

Most of the non-Steam platforms are money-grubbing shit (I'm looking at you, Uplay), but the Epic Store is a serious effort to do things differently and in some ways better. It isn't completely shitted up with shovelware, they take a smaller cut from game publishers, they give prominent placement to actually good indie games, the launcher isn't absolutely terrible and there's now a first-party integration with GOG Galaxy.

I don't for a minute think that Epic are motivated by altruism, but the lack of real competition has made Valve utterly complacent and increasingly uninterested in the long-term wellbeing of the PC gaming ecosystem.

The thing is when it was Steam controlling the spice, you could always still buy disc versions and CD keys off third party sites etc. But with Epic, exclusive means exclusive, and while the launcher isn't actively awful, it's missing a lot of features.

You can't even schedule or queue downloads (as of the last time I bought anything on it), and it kind of fucked me over on my shitty connection with my other half trying to download the same thing, but I was forced to download 30 fucking gigs of shite for Borderlands before it'd even start the one I wanted.

Can you blame developers for going Epic-exclusive though? Steam take a 30% cut, but Epic only take 12% with generous marketing incentives for exclusivity. Valve could make the Epic Store irrelevant overnight if they wanted to, but they're still acting as if Steam is the only game in town.

At least Steam does have some value proposition. Large existing community and decent support for it. And they only take that cut on purchases rather than recurring revenue. Contrast with, say, the Apple App Store, which demands you effectively gift them a third of your entire business for free just to even exist on iDevices.

Of course I can't blame profit seeking businesses for making decisions that will enable them to make more profits, but what has that got to do with me as an end user? I'm just inconvenienced. I wouldn't mind if I could just pick up a cheap retail copy like you used to be able to, but no- It's Epic or piracy.

Be under no illusions that Epic is trying to save us from the evil monopoly of Valve out of sheer altruism, they are only hoping to replace it with a monopoly of their own.

TBF I've had loads of brilliant freebies from the Epic store - off the top of my head Borderlands 2, Civ VI, Subnautica, The Talos Principle and The Stanley Parable. I've no interest in Football Manager, but I'll probably give Watch Dogs 2 a go.

I think I also have most of them, but they're all completely untouched.

I used to get FM every other season but for some reason I haven't bothered since FM2015, although I was on the fence about getting FM2021 when it was out seeing as Hull are now in League One. I think my last save was where I turned Alloa into the best team in the world.

If I had to recommend one of them, it'd be Subnautica - it can get a little bit grindy later on, you will get confused about what you need to do and end up Googling stuff, but it's utterly captivating all the same. It's imaginative and visually gorgeous and incredibly atmospheric and there's a story that isn't utterly juvenile.

Can I just say I only had to look up one thing on the web about Subnautica and that was where the Big Sub bits were, which it turned out I'd been past half a dozen times already I just hadn't been paying attention. I'm not saying that to be smug, I just think it gives you exactly the right amount of info, both in speech, text and visuals so that you know what you need to do.

Cracking fun, the biggest of recommendations from me too. I couldn't stop smiling when I got the Big Sub.

I picked up Cities Skylines since I'm a big classic Sim City fan and I'd already had the Epic Launcher installed from when I grabbed a couple of free alts for Elite Dangerous a few weeks ago. I only played it for a few minutes but it looked good.

You're losing out on the experience quite a bit if you get it on Epic, as while it has a ton of DLC with interesting features arbitrarily split between them it also has a massive modding scene through the steam workshop, which Epic completely lacks.

The open source remake of RCT2 is a must have, this and TTDX are some of the finest Tycoon games ever made.

Anyway, Brigador is free on GOG, it's a like an arcadey Mechwarrior where everything is destructible. It really just makes me pine for MechCommander 1 though.
