Will you consider the Epic Game Store your new default library?

View Results
Never, I'll stick to Steam thank you very much
Maybe, if I get enough freebies to get me started
Sure, if they will let me link my Steam profile to bootstrap my collection
Why not another store indeed, if the prices are right

Is this just where Epic launcher isn't opening?

Damn, quality of these games are extraordinary. Hope that Messenger will arrive in a monthly or some other bundle so I can have it for Steam too. Same thing for Celeste, my #1 wishlisted game.

Can't log in, the mail with the 2FA code isn't comming, their servers must be under heavy load. Will try again later.

Can't log in, the mail with the 2FA code isn't comming, their servers must be under heavy load.

Which is why I disabled it months ago after getting frustrated. When this kind of thing goes on because of an inadequate implementation it makes what is supposed to be a positive security feature fucking retarded because you end up getting locked out of your own account. Just goes to underscore the fact that Epic doesn't give a shit about the customer experience or improving the platform with features and proper functionality. All they care about is the contrived shoehorning in of exclusives and stealing games away from Steam.

Like when Steam servers can't handle Sale-start-volume because they don't give a shit about the customer experience :thumbs-up:

You are right, with all the money they make they should be investing in more temporary bandwidth/infrastructure for the huge sales so they can handle the load. At least it's for a massive sale though and not just a single game giveaway. That and 2FA is supposed to help you, not hurt you.

You spoiled kids got nothing to complain about. I waited more than a day for Indiegala unlock code emails several times. Until I finally turned the "feature" off. Also considering the sluggish and bloated html-coding of their website, indiegala is easily the most incompetent company in the game-related internet.

Be careful not to let them hear that or they might delete your account :D
I know at least one person to whom that happened because he managed to annoy them.

While I do find annoying having to wait 3 or 4 minutes for something that should come within less than a minute in order to properly work it's not exactly a deal breaker for me as long as it usually works as intended, and it works as intended most of the time.
I have yet to pay a single cent for something on the EGS so for now my expectations are relatively easy to meet, unlike with other services where I have paid actual money and I do expect to recieve a working service yet I still tolerate their f*ck ups, a.k.a. Steam.
Kinda forgot of where I was going with this.

Push it up even further :P It's hard for me to distinguish between Legends and Origins because it's been a while since I played them but they are both amazing games and even better in couch coop. not sure if they have online coop
I would rate them en par with Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2.

Uuugh, I'm fairly sure I have Origins on uPlay already, and you say they have couch co-cop... delish!

I'm like 98% positive I played both of them on Wii with my two best buddies. Not sure anymore though if they both support 3 players or if we took turns playing. I know the 2nd character beside Rayman is a big blue frog-thingy that can use it's tongue to catch enemies if I remember correctly.

And what I particularly liked about them in coop is that all players have full abilities (contrary to Super Mario Galaxy where player n°2 can just play as a Luma and help the main player) and there's even some mechanics that exist only in coop. (you can pick your buddies up and throw them to places you couldn't reach otherwise) or into the next lava pit / spike trap diabolical laughter

Yeah, can't change the poll after it has been made, afaics. Galaxy 2.0 wasn't available to me when the topic was started :) It certainly has potential, but isn't quite there yet.

Thats what i don't get about it. If i open epic page logged out it works fine, as soon as i log in i get that message. And i can't access the page anymore.

The only thing i ever did was log in, grab the free games and close their page.

Its ok, im not crying here, if i cant get Rayman, not that important to me at all. Got already enough, Batman, Metro, Soma; Costume Quest, Layers of Fear, QUBE, Alan Wake.

Same here.

IIRC, it worked fine for me until RUINER/Nuclear Throne and then that issue.
I thought since I'm using an outdated version of Chrome, maybe the site was modified and broke compatibility...

If you don't wish to use the Epic launcher, try with a browser on a mobile - this works in my case.

There is just a little Problem, im not using Epic Launcher, because i cant use it. Its not working here on my shit PC. My PC is very bad, slow and old. Sadly. ^^

And i also dont have a Mobile at all, since over 8 Years not, for me not important and just wasted Money. At least in my case. I hate that small things anyway. ;-)

I always used my browser and was working fine, till now. I dont know whats the issue, but its ok if i dont get Rayman at all, that Game is not that important to me at all. :D

It seems the site has some issues. In some cases it helps to temporarily skip to another part of the site using one of the tabs near the top, then hit 'back' on the browser to refresh the page you're stuck at.

once you click install, it launches uplay and obliges to link the account. then when you press play, it launches uplay and the game starts, and gets added to your uplay account. After that, you can pretty much just launch from uplay and forget about epic to begin with
