Steam is actually at the too big to fail point right now.

If Steam suddenly disappeared PC gaming would be in big trouble for a while.

No such thing but, yeah steam and going anywhere but no. 1.

Meant to say aint.

Would be funny tho if they decided to say screw it and everyone lost all their digital games. Totally crappy, but kind of morbidly funny after all the pc master race talk.

nah...they won't want to miss on all those dollars which they are basically just raking in at the moment by being the host. imagine having a big house and you're hosting a party but everybody just pays you for owning the house but beers, food and almost everything else for the party are brought by those who still pay you. I know I wouldn't want to throw all THAT away. not in a million years!

You trade a game in for 25% of its current value for a currency that is their own with the option to mine said currency like a bitcoin farmer, erm think I'll stick with Steam, Uplay, GoG and Origin that's quite enough without bringing crypto farming into it.

That's killed it for me, the cryptocurrency aspect of it. If it does offer refunds without any hoops and loops that will be awesome

It looks promising. What they really need to work on is building a community like steam. Where players can interact (write reviews, chat, play, etc.). Maybe it'll be good for single player games; but for multiplayer games a strong community is vital for success.

Interesting, I'll definitely try this out but still won't be leaving Steam and GOG
