We all know the rage that caused the choice of 4A games to take off (even if for 1 year) Metro Exodus on Steam.

I bought Metro Exodus on Epic store because I'm a fan of the saga. Epic store is empty ... Contains only keys to buy install and play

With achievements i have a relationship of love and hate. But i have to say that they give me a sense of completeness if i get one or half of them.

Now having no more achievements on Epic store i have a sense of emptiness.

I have no trace that i have completed the game, nor that i finished with hard difficulty at the first run and i got the good ending.

Im not imprest by epic store either. Metro Exodos is the first and last game i get on the epic store.

Last week i got Metro and Far Cry new Dawn the day before lauch. Actitivated the games on Epic and Uplay and here is how this went for a start.

Far cry: preloaded just fine thursday.
Metro: No preload. WTF epic?

At midnight (i stayed up late to try metro out):
Far Cry: Right after midnight on Friday, i cut lauch and play the game.
Metro. still no option for preload/download, it ditten even show up in my library yet:kookoo:

Next morning:
Far Cry: just as after midnight ready for action
Metro: finally i cut download the game and then play. After waiting for the game to finish download.

Im not impressed by epic store compared to steam and uplay and as you say there are no achievements either. For not to mention not many of my friends use it ( most only use steam) and that means epic launcher is also a problem when it comes to online gaming with friends. As far i can see or the lag of it is also that you cant even see for how long you have played the game, you can do that in steam.

If you want a game and exspect to play right after midnight on lauch day or even to preload a game, epic launcher is not the one to go with then. Epic fail:banghead:

Just for the record, It wasnt 4A games that decided to move to epic - The decision and final decision was made by their publisher Koch Media.

4A games just got taken along for the ride. They have no say in the matter.

What is this obsession with achievements? This is a general question, not directly aimed at the OP. If they happen, great, but honestly, I’m there to play the game and enjoy the story.

I notice the difference the most when I play games from GOG where I have none. I don’t need affirmation of my involvement in the storyline, I just interacted with and was deeply embedded in it. I know when I complete the game, and When I do cool stuff.

What does an achievement get me? Honestly, nothing. They might possibly be useful on Uplay, where achievements can allow points to buy some cosmetic additions to the games. Otherwise they seem to merely be a fluff, without which my self esteem and game enjoyment survive just fine.

Do YOU know you finished the game? If you do, why does it matter if it shows up on some web site? Or is it the bragging rights thing? Kinda shallow really, if that's the case.

Well it is just a personal honor, a collectible (virtual) but it is there. I personally remember it obvious

I can understand that it does not affect everybody, but i believe that at least if an achievement asks you that to be unlocked you must find secrets or overcome levels in a given way is a challenge.

I completed an achievement today. I had my paycheck deposited in a bank account but the strange thing, was that it doesn't show up anywhere on Steam. I need to contact them and find out why...must be a glitch.

I'd consider that a very serious advantage over Steam. I hate pop ups which is why I run a pop up blocker on my internet browsers. Why Valve hasn't figured out how to implement a pop up blocker on games purchased and running from their store after all these years is beyond me.

Steam Achievements get your Hero Cookies that are mailed to you every month once you collected enough achievement points. Choose from Chocolate, Valina, Strawberry and the Steam favorite Double Chocolate Delight. Yummy. :D

You also get pop ups, the best thing ever.

Someone needs to develop a pop up/achievement blocker plug in for Steam.

Sorry to resurrect this thread but I didn't think this news is worth a new thread.

Metro Exodus will be coming to the Windows Store in 3 days for anyone that just won't buy it from the Epic Store there is now a second choice.

I guess sales of the game were so mediocre that another deal was bartered in a desperate attempt to spread the net wider but of course, doing what they did with steam they might be trying to save face by leaving steam as the LAST place they would go back to.

I know M$ is trying to work on some cross platform thing with their games meaning that if you buy a copy of their game for any platform then it will run on PC and on their consoles. But i question this move. Not a lot of people like Microsoft store either. but i guess it has more features and has been around longer than EGS. At least achievement hunters can now get their fix.

Uplay does achievements better than Steam though, and I don't hear you asking Steam to change. I find achievements extremely useless and boring on Steam, but Uplay gives me rewards that real life money can not buy, in-game rewards I mean. So it makes doing achievements in Uplay much more satisfying, and it's usually pretty awesome rewards. Steam could have regular achievements and then offer support for games that want to offer Luxury Achievements, opt-in only, same as the standard one is now.

Bring it onto Steam already.
Let the gamer choose which platform they prefer not epic.

Seems Epic is causing the developers to make a lot less by signing nonsense exclusivity deals.

I'm waiting for a Steam Release Period.

imo the initial sales are long gone and new sales have stagnated so Deep Silver is looking for ways to increase their exposure to sell their game. I think Steam will be a good boost in sales but that's not until next year.

So the publisher went from the store majority of people dislike to a store that everyone dislikes. Makes sense. Also if there was exclusivity with the EGS for one year than no other PC platform should have gotten it at all. This all seems like the exclusivity was a "NOT ON STEAM" deal rather than EGS only deal... Time will tell.

You are inferring a lot, when Epic is just as close-mouthed about sales numbers as Steam is.

the store majority of people dislike to a store that everyone dislikes.
Well, you are attributing the very vocal but small number of complainers as a majority. I would never make assumptions like that. Facts are needed to conclude that.

EGS has already said that it sold 2.5x more than Metro: LL. THQ Said that it "exceeded expectations" but they havent really been singing it to the stars and back like most publishers would

Anyway... I read somewhere that there were 250k copies sold. Epic claims that 41million people use its platform. if only 250k people out of 41million bought the game then it sold rather badly hence they reaching out to Microsoft.

The most units sold were probably on steam when the publisher announced they would be pulling it from steam.

EGS has already said that it sold 2.5x more than Metro: LL. THQ Said that it "exceeded expectations" but they havent really been singing it to the stars and back like most publishers would

Anyway... I read somewhere that there were 250k copies sold. Epic claims that 41million people use its platform. if only 250k people out of 41million bought the game then it sold rather badly hence they reaching out to Microsoft.

The most units sold were probably on steam when the publisher announced they would be pulling it from steam.
I don’t think a lot sold on Steam, since that was all pre-order. Numbers of reviews is usually very representative in knowing how well a game sold, even if we don’t know the ratio. Last month there were only 4,000 or so reviews on Exodus on Steam, so it implies preorder numbers were slight.

A handful of games have ever sold over 10 million on PC, much less the 41 million you seem to feel it should be capable of. That’s not a very fair assessment at all.

THQ also wasn’t very happy with the move that Deep Silver made to EGS, and forbade them making independent moves like that again. My guess is they are eager for the one year exclusivity agreement to be gone.
