Speaking of Epic's store, they actually have something that's pretty worrying.

An integral part of the store is affiliate links. That on it's own could be a nice tool for marketing but instead it's set up as a major element of the store. The publisher sets the rate from 0% to 100% and then any registered influencer can get the link to sell your game with a kickback. The default is 5% and currently Epic is paying this themselves.

One of my keys on my laptop was sticking, so I was trying to take it off.  

Instead I probably ended up breaking it.  Either that or it was broken and that's why it was sticking.

Most likely its my fault.  

Bought a replacement.  

But apparently it costs like $10 for a single key.

Metro Exodus looks insane.

Indeed. Saw the raytracing video from eurogamer and it's crazy. Look at the details of the hands!

Despite the fact that I haven't started a game or even used the epic launcher for more than 3 minutes, I already have 6 games.

Epic Games Store now has search.  Welcome to the 20th century.  ;D

Just checked it out and got Slime Rancher. Apparently it's quite good! Also, Oxenfree is next which is also supposedly good

PC store exclusives are weird. They simultaneously are perfectly easy to play but silly to exist. It'd make more sense if steamOS took off but nope.

I honestly don't think valve would be in business if Steam wasn't the equivalent of WoW.  They'e so horribly mismanaged and Gabe has no drive to do anything.  Steam boxes and steamOS could have been huge.  Hell I was walking around Best Buy today and my 1070 power MSI Arctic 3 is such a clean marvel compared to the equivalents at the store.  All PCs should have this config.  If Valve made a proper reference box, steam machines would still be a thing.
