I think to a large degree it is magnified by the internet, but also there will be people who are not plugged into this as much and just look at Steam for new games to buy and they wont know about the Epic Store.

I would not be surprised to wake up one morning to the news that all free games in the Epic store have been pulled. Anything is possible now.

no - just that nothing surprises me anymore

this whole renting "licences" is just weird. The whole world is going down the rental model

I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere in the world you can subscribe to a coffin package.

Awesome. I've been debating getting Surviving Mars but have been holding off until I submit my thesis. Now I get it for free!

I noticed they put Observer back on the free list. Thats no good Epic - we want new free games. Stop relisting free games you gave away in the past. Talk about being selfish.

No idea about Epic, but I definitely picked it up on Twitch Prime.

I may even play it eventually ¬_¬

yeah I made a mistake

Now that is another thing - how dare Epic repeat free games that were once free on Twitch. Disgusting.
