Valve owns Steam though. I don't think most people have issues with Epic putting their games only on their own launcher.

The thing most people don't like is that Epic is paying third-party companies to only put their games on Epic launcher or to delay the Steam release.

Re: PC Gaming Thread

Can I still use Steam as a front end launcher for games bought on Epic's store like you can with most other launchers?

Re: PC Gaming Thread

I don't mind the other store fronts that are out there, I think it's good to have competition rather then let Valve run the show. I don't find it that difficult to have the handful now, whether it be Blizzard Launcher, EA Origin, or Steam. And maybe the 1 or 2 games I have on UPlay

Re: PC Gaming Thread

So is anyone here into old school gaming and not have a GOG account? I’ve accumulated several free duplicate codes of vintage games over the past year, and some of them expire this week. This is old stuff like Fantasy General and other 1990s games. If you’re active in GOG you’ve probably already got these codes, but perhaps someone here would be new to GOG (so much better than Steam imho) and would appreciate some old school gaming. I’d prefer to pass the codes along to someone here, my home away from home, than any other site, and to an older active poster, but let me know if you’re interested. Merry Christmas friends.

I've been on the GOG bandwagon since they started, but mostly for old Sierra and LucasArts type games. Hope you find a home for the codes you're giving away

Code sent, let me know if it worked. I think expired codes would either delete themselves or show me a warning, but Im not sure.

Re: PC Gaming Thread

AMD announced their new high end card, the Radeon VII for $699 coming Feb 7th.

https://www.anandtech.com/show/13829...e-4-eight-core

Nvidia announced their RTX 2060 a couple days ago too at $350.

https://www.anandtech.com/show/13762...ion-6gb-review

Graphics card prices are wild. I miss the $300 range being their 70 series cards.

The 3rd gen Ryzen looks interesting too, i'm still happy with my Ryzen 7 1700.
