Epic develop and maintain the Unreal Engine. You can't write that off as nothing

Right. But does anyone like it?

To be honest on the PC it makes zero difference to me.


I mean, I can always do with less storefronts to install and it annoys me not being able to see all my 'to play' list in a single place (though I'm currently employing a really ridiculous work around) but yeah, it's certainly less of a problem than when done with consoles.

No, I'm adding games that I've got installed in Epic into Steam as non-Steam apps like Firefox and Notepad then changing the icon to match the game they represent.

@gazchap should I count the new Google Wifi hub I bought to improve the signal for my PS4?

Glad to be of help. :) I've already played it more than the Steam version that I already owned.

I didn’t really see the point in getting the remaster on PC when the original game still works in modern-day resolutions.

I was tempted by the PS4 version but I don’t think it really got the same traction as in the old 360 days. The online challenges were the best part.

Most are cross-buy, so if you've already bought them for Rift (through the Oculus store, not Steam) then you don't have to buy it again.

There are a few exceptions, though. Notably Beat Saber, Superhot and Virtual Desktop.

OK I'll leave it as it is then. However my official estimate is now £400-£600 for this year.

With my current PC usage scenario I simply can't justify buying a new PC. The only PC game that's on my radar for this year is Borderlands 3, and I should be able to run that fine on my existing PC.

It's OK. It doesn't count as it's only a spare.
