As the saying goes - "if something is free, you are the product".

Having an epic account and downloading their products is supporting them whether or not you're paying money to do so.

The facts about epic and sweeney are out there and if someone, after researching them, still feel like supporting them I'm not going to bother arguing with that.

I never really thought Fall Guys was that good - I played it for a while and it was kinda fun, but it got boring quite soon so it wasn't a big loss for me when epic bought it.

Rocket League is a different matter though - it is one of my favourite games of all times. I've got well above a thousand hours in it and bought most of their dlc just to support the developers.

When they got bought by epic I continued playing, but did not buy any additional content after that. Once it became mandatory to make an epic account to continue playing, I quit.

Overnight Rocket League went from being my most played game to me going cold turkey because there is no way I'm supporting epic and sweeney, even if all it takes is making a "free" account with them.

I get your point and I generally agree however I'm not sure what do about it. RL has been my game for almost 7 years now and getting GC rewards a few seasons ago was one of my most satisfying gaming accomplishments, I'm not ready to quit it cold turkey - I do play less since that season where I grinded so hard. I never bought anything on Epic (even though they have often best deals esp. considering €10 coupons) and I've only played a handful of games from their giveaways. Regarding: "if something is free, you are the product" - not sure if it works the same in this case, it's not Facebook. They're trying to make me spend money and they have failed to do so. My RL pass has been funded by itself since it got introduced.

agreed with the above, I'm all for cancelling big corporations, but I don't think that claiming free games from Epic counts as supporting them, they are more like free samples

Anybody play NBA 2k23? I can't figure out what the slide meters really do for shot timing and shot coverage. Sources on the internet say different things. And I guess the game developer doesn't put out guides. I assume shot timing at 0 makes the bar not matter but shot coverage is less intuitive. I'm having a hard time getting consistent at shooting. Somebody said taking the meter off totally improves shots?

It could be awesome, but like half the maps are vaulted now, meaning they never show up until "unvaulted". Apparently the Switch can't handle many of the levels, so instead of fencing off their users, they dumbed down the game for users on other platforms as well.

Games like this really need a wide variety of maps, and they're finally getting to the point where they have enough maps to keep the game fresh, and then they just throw 50% of the maps in a vault.
