Recently Epic Games decided to hold an “Epic Mega Sale” on the Epic Store, discounting all games above $15 by $10 and providing that $10 to the developers. This caused severe issues as Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 and Oxygen Not Included pull their games from the Epic Store for the duration of the sale. Also, there are reports that people are getting their Epic Store accounts locked due to potential fraud activity because the Epic Store doesn’t have a shopping cart. I also take a dig at Tim Sweeney.
