Well, that is quite the false equivalency you shot out there. So to you "principles" only exist when it's life or death? Not littering can be based on principles. Holding the door open for someone can be based on principles. None of that has anything to do with Sins 2, but I just read this whole thread and your replies are all of the 'holier than thou' type so I felt like chiming in here.
As it relates to Sins 2, I'm a wait and see type because my "principles" (much like that other comment) are such that I don't want to give money to someone using anti-competitive tactics to buy their way into the market. It isn't life or death, but that doesn't make it any less valid of a choice. Game will be great, I'm sure, and I will play it when it comes out on steam as it inevitably will.
His statement and yours literally are saying that if people buy the game now from Epic that they have no principles. That is the definition of a Holier than thou argument so don't try false equivalency your argument with me. As I stated, I think people waiting until it comes out on Steam and probably waiting until all the bugs are worked out is good idea. Only the die-hard fans wanting to participate in the Pre-Alpha and give back input should buy it now.
I could make the same argument with Steam being greedy for taking 30% profits so they are cutting all the small boys from being able to get their games published. As I said before, I have bought the game as a lot of other people have and I will have no issues sleeping tonight because of it.
I will continue to poke fun at the Epic/Steam argument because I think it's silly and deserves to be ridiculed, that is my choice.
