@cacronia I can tell you that Tropico is really fun to play, relaxing and very funny (you can see what the cows are thinking). It’s not hard like most strategy games. In the game, you are just trying to see if you can remain the president of a tropical island, either by making the people happy or by using force. You should try it. It’s free to get (must get today). :nerd_face:

Anyone else keep getting logged out from the epic store every time you visit?
Every time I go to the store it does a redirect thing with a logout token and then reloads the store page forcing me to keep logging in every time despite asking for it to remember me.

OMG i already have 184 games on EGS :grin:

@Fraggles only happens to me when they’re overloaded, like with GTA V and Alien a few days ago, but i always use launcher rather than browser

I agree. lol

Personally I won’t buy from Epic anymore because they screwed me out of 100+ hrs of game saves. They had an issue on their cloud server and it wiped all my games. Lost quite a few timed exclusive items. Talked to support for two months trying to get a solution and all they did was say oops…here’s a $10 coupon for any purchase over $14.99

Now I only grab the free games and even go as far as to grab the free for the month Unreal Engine packs…because it costs them money and puts money in the devs pockets! :joy:

It might be a little vindictive :thinking: oh well :man_shrugging::joy:

Agreed, even should Epic not appeal to me in the slightest, it is a sensible position to hold. If it suits you, buy and play off of Epic games.

I do, I do, but i promise i will show remorse as soon as Steam implements the option for developers to have regional pricing for Africa :joy:

I definitely prefer playing on Steam and having my games there, but u just can’t beat cheap regional pricing :crazy_face:

i know you do, and i wouldn’t ever be snobby/“steam fanboi” enough to want people to miss out on savings buying on epic,
you know i love you man, so definitely take advantage of the savings when they are there (and that big) - i’m still dumbfounded Valve hasn’t implemented more regional pricings, that seems like an area that would be easy to “increase”/compete with Epic on instead of just sticking to the old bases (but oh boi do i hope they never switch to DKR :grimacing:)

That is definitely a good reason to use Epic over steam.

One good thing I see about Epic entering the market is it gives Steam a good swift kick in the pants to start innovating and maybe get some more regional pricing! :wink: They’ve been king for too long and innovation kind of went stale in their complacency.

Thanks @markwr :heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation:

I still have to yet install the managler :thinking: And I haven’t bought anything.

Maybe it “knows” that…so that’s why I have to sign in each time.

Sadly…I do not think Steam will ever move in that direction. :frowning_face:

Thanks for the post @markwr, I’ve got it without any issues.

Next game will be… INSIDE.
