Ok, Valve really has to lower their 30% revenue at this point.

Epic is ripping them apart with new exclusive titles. Their games are apparently doing well on the Epic Store, and they will have most of Steam’s features in place by the end of this year if their road map is correct, something that took Valve a decade…

Epic is ripping them apart with new exclusive titles. Their games are apparently doing well on the Epic Store, and they will have most of Steam's features in place by the end of this year if their road map is correct, something that took Valve a decade to accomplish. Epic aren't resting. I think the time is right for us to discuss what Valve should do to stop this madness.

For more than a decade, when you think about Xbox Live, you are likely thinking of a black box that sits in your living room that connects to an online service.

Any 4K PC gamers here?

Any 4K PC gamers in here? I just bought my first 4K monitor from Asus, and it’s pretty good. My GTX 1070 doesn’t really have the power to run games at 4K, but games like Forza looks great.

Any other titles I can run on in 4K on a GTX 1070 to recommend?

Dirt Rally 2.0 is always online, and it has ruined the game to me.

I bought this game without knowing that the game required me to be online, even for single player. Fine, I guess? But after playing the game their servers are down all the time. I checked their forums on Reddit, and everyone seem to have the same probl…

Xbox expanding to other platforms is great, but streaming still suck.

When I read the rumors about Switch it looks like streaming is the only option we'll be getting. I guess the same goes for mobile. To me it kinda ruins the purpose of playing on a Switch, as I don't have it connected to WiFi when I'm traveling or spend time outside my home. I have my phone connected to 4G, but streaming on 4G is terrible, and I have limited data. I know that the Switch and mobile phones won't be able to run most games natively due to the lack of power, but that doesn't...

What do Microsoft mean by Game Pass on PC?

They have said many times that they will release Game Pass on PC, which obviously is something different than "Play Anywhere". Their store barely have third party games compared to Xbox, so what do they mean?

Do We Expect GamePass for PC to Be Streaming Only?
