I have several hundred games on the Epic Store. I've bought zero. I've played maybe 10 or less of them. I'm not worried. *Back to Steam*

Not sure what logic is supposed to be backed up by this argument. Whether the hack is true or not it’s likely they’ve got all the same information whether you’ve ever bought games or even whether you play them or not. As with the majority of these industry hacks. Going back to Steam literally makes absolutely zero difference to the situation… and it’s not even like Steam has never been hacked either…. I don’t get it.

So you have an account then? What games you own hardly has anything to do with it. User logins and financials were exposed. Login credentials from one account can easily be linked to another.

I never gave them my credit card number, and my account has 2FA anyways.

Just saying, this doesn't surprise me with Epic. But yea, sorry for those of you who have spent money there, hope your CC's are safe. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Just, not surprised, that's all.

I bought a few games on the Epic Store as well, but I'm still not worried about it.

SEGA in victim mode for many years.. blaming others for doing good never questioning themselves.. no need to be marketing effort to know that releasing a bit of the same sonic at the same time as a very creative and perfectly executed 2D mario would hurt the sales.. well SEGA have one of the most amateur marketing people in the industry


The rivals are at it again. 😁

Even when Sega were still in the console business Sonic couldn't compete in terms of sales with Mario. Sonic is hot ragain and Sega still managed to fuck up. Quite the accomplishment.

A lot of bad Sonic games over the years. After Sonic Adventure 2, although Sonic Adventure was better, Sonic died. Apart from the Sonic Racing, that's pretty much it. Sonic Frontiers, SEGA should've knocked out Sonic Adventure 3. These SEGA collections have been knocking around for too long. There's been too much dumbness at SEGA.

Sonic is great but he is nothing when compared to Mario. Nintendo just knows how to utilize Mario better like Mario Maker, Super Smash, Mario Kart, Mario RPG, Mario Paint. Sonic is not a utilizable enough like Mario. Mario can be adapted to different games. Sonic is pretty much run, run, run. Sure Sonic has his own other games but again he is nothing when compared to Mario.
