    OH wowow haha, now that is a pretty big oversight. My bank and/or Paypal are both good enough at detecting BS transactions that I dont need Epic doing it for me

    i bought Observation as it's coming out tomorrow on EGS so I plan to play it and see how it is.

    EDIT: if only EGS had a shopping cart the fraud thing wouldn't be much of an issue.

    Amazon had a shopping cart in 1994. :p it's an incredible feature for a digital store front.

    Epic might want to try it.

    Haha, yeah that is sitting beside them, but I'm not sure how to use the store functionality?
    There is a $10 / mth Nitro thing in options, but no "store" button that I can find? Looks like it can launch games from other launchers too?

    Remember back when you needed a shortcut per game instead of per launcher? Pepperidge farm remembers...

    Seriously though, 7 whole icons? worth being sad over?

    Could be Amazon (or somebody else) took out a patent on this and they're trying not to pay for it.

    NVIDIA Geforce Experience also launches games. When will the calls for a boycott of NVIDIA begin?

    Lose that smooth integration of knowing the updates and notifications will stop when you start a game.
