Interesting.... this was my major complaint about the store. Letting me go through humble for payments makes me more likely to try the store now in the future

Interesting, so in a roundabout way IGN is now partnered with them. I wonder how many times that will get brought up as a conflict of interest with Epic's titles.

Well, I would make an account but not because they're going to overtake Steam. They just give away a lot of games so it's worth installing for that alone. Personally, I won't buy games from the epic store unless their sales can compete with Steam prices.

So now the majority of bundles are going to be Epic keys.

I would rather play on Steam since that's where the vast majority of my stuff is and they have a lot nice features that makes everything easier. But as long as I can play my games with minimal effort, it doesn't bother me too much if I have to download another client.

With that said, they way they are going about all this so forcefully, rubs me the wrong way.

Rather than make a good service that people want to use and gaining costumers that way, they are strong arming their way through and forcing people to use their service with exclusives. It's going to leave a bad taste with many people and eventually they will either have to improve their service or fail.

Eh, hopefully humble monthly keeps giving me steam keys or I'll end that sub.

Humble hasn't been that relevant since IGN came in, new PC owners aside. I'm still waiting for the Epic storefront to target something I care about so I can get mad, but that hasn't happened yet and won't happen so long as they keep trying to target the AAA and mainstream indie scenes.
