[Epic] Epic Games Store Weekly Free Games in 2020!

Quote:
New decade means new games and we’re looking at a great start with tons of amazing titles coming exclusively to the Epic Games Store in 2020. To kick things off, we’re extending our weekly free game program throughout 2020. Every single week, come back to claim your game. Once claimed, it’s yours to keep forever.

Now, let’s take a look at how far the Epic Games Store has come…
https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-U...-games-in-2020



Those numbers are so pathetic I don't even know why they bothered publishing them.

251 * 0.12 = $30 million for the EGS in 3rd party sales.
Minus $23 million in coupons = $7 million in 3rd party sales.
Now if you factor the free weekly games and the exclusivity deals I wonder how much money they are hemorrhaging on this nonsense.

Any competiton bleeding cash like this is not healthy at all.

Considering it's backed by the Chinese Gov't, heavy hemorrhaging of funds now means absolutely nothing to them in the long game. Heck, operating at a loss perpetually may be acceptable if their bigger aim is establishing another foothold for propaganda like they have in other U.S. markets.

Even if that's the case, free games, free UE4 engine, and free Megapixels = epic store on my PC even if it was run by the zombie of Hitler resurrected by the lizard people as a means of enslaving Earth...

Every time I remember, I claim the free games, hoping they have to pay for it. Never actually played any of them tho. Already have many of them on steam.

likewise. I've only hopped in a few.

Everything
Surviving Mars
Observer, which is a decent title actually. Similar vibes to disco elysium's story.

EGS is still garbage though, and it seems unlikely they'll ever build out comparable services to Valve, specially with how they're hemorrhaging money. Clearly, it's all because of 10CENT!

Add me on Steam, same name
R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I mean, I kinda just justified the enslavement of the entire human race to zombie hitler and lizard people if it saved me a few bucks so......

Steam has a big willy

People resist change. Steam was just an annoying "thing" they forced on us in order to play CS 1.6 beta back in '02.. I ended up abandoning it and not making a new account until somewhere in 2010 because I didn't want to give up my hard copies.

I still want hard copies

damned human brain

Also I'm almost level 69 on steam, how can I abandon THAT for another launcher?!?!?!!!?!?

If they offer something truly amazing that I can't get anywhere else, I might finally sign up.

But right now the only thing I really want there is Rogue Galaxy Outlaw... and frankly I'm busy enough that I can wait.
