FYI "about user friendly Klei". They already made deal with Epic for Griftlands exclusivity. Deal with Apple for Hot Lava exclusivity so now i cant play the game i bought on Steam and i need to subscribe to some service to play one game.

Not sure- I bought both GL and HL recently on steam and played HL fully in a week. Nothing stopped me, it still turns on normally. Unless I misunderstood and you meant something else? Or has this happened so recently I barely bought them in time?

Griftlands was exclusively on Epic Store for long time. Just recently they could release it on Steam because the exclusivity deal ended

Hot Lava is impossible to play on Mac other than trough subscription for Apple Arcade. I have it on steam but Klei blocked mac version on Steam because of the exclusivity deal which AFAIK doesnt have expiration date

Source(s) for the apple arcade exclusivity terms? It would explain why Munch's Oddysee didn't get the Mac version on Steam despite there being one on the Mac App Store. :mad-new:

I dont know about that one. That could be just choice of developer. I havent heard any exclusivity with Mac App Store just with Apple Arcade service. All the games in Apple Arcade are available ONLY trough Apple Arcade, not even trough macOS/iOS stores, only with Apple Arcade subscription

Not even Klei said anything about Apple Arcade exclusivity which sucks big time so thats why IDK if this exclusivity is times but Apple Arcade is here for long time so i dont have high hopes. It would be great if at least Klei said that this is never coming anywhere else (and i bought Hot Lava because they said they will bring it to macOS, this exclusivity happened after that)

Well I guess I shall not be giving Klei my patronage anymore. I've already refused to buy Griftlands since they decided to make it an EGS exclusive when it was already being advertised for Steam. This is nothing more than a nail in the coffin in my desire to support Klei Entertainment anymore. Guess Klei doesn't Rhyme with Play anymore. I mean, after all, they don't need my money. They got their corporate investors giving them all the money that they need.

I meant that they couldn't do anything by sitting here and complaining on the forums, but I should have been more specific. 

Damn, you really murdered me with this comment though. Who knew that if you stopped buying products from a business then they stop getting your money? Color me surprised! :shock:

Honestly, I dont care all that much. Klei is one of my favorite all time studios and I trust their discussion. All I want to know is when we can expect to hear at least a hint of the next IP, sequel, or update for a base Dont Starve expansion.

Although I am saddened by this decision, I understand that they need more funds and that there may not be any way that we could talk them out of it. All I ask of them is to stay vigilant to stay in control and none of this changes the base formula/plan of the game that we fell in love within the first place.

yeah genocide is morally wrong we agree so this is common ground for us to work off of.

 I'm try to use  China's history to show you how the Chinese treat Jews and genocide. There is no doubt that Chinese oppose genocide. I oppose genocide. If someone believes that the Chinese government is committing genocide, whatever, I do not comment on it. I am not a government official.

For a long time there are many social conflicts in China. I do not expect to deal with these issues in a few years. This is a protracted war. Now you are talking about the genocide in China. I have seen how the media in other countries of the world report these news that happened in China. Frankly speaking, these reports are not very helpful in solving the problem. Things will not change because more people know. If you choose bad news to learn about China, you will not hear any good news over time.

I am not going to deny the news about China you have seen. But all the news you see is not necessarily all parts of news . Media reports with political stance can get more benefits. They will emphasize that George Floyd died in violent law enforcement. But they will not tell you that George Floyd has been in jail for drug trafficking crimes. 

If someone chooses a political position for his own benefit to oppose those political positions that are unfavorable to him, then he is a double standard. I am talking about the mainstream media that banned the Twitter account of the US President who has 70 million followers. They accused China of not having freedom of speech, but they blocked the Twitter account of the US President.

Prejudice will persist.

 I am very disappointed with KLei. KLei sells DS to Tencent in order to make more money by selling DS IP. KLei had deviated from the belief that they originally founded the company that provided players with a better platform for their creativity. The image of Don't Starve New Home is awful. The new game destroys the image of the original DS.  Everything about New Home is for more money and satisfy their own greed.

Ash Tein himself roasts Klei enthusiast

Anyway I guess I can actually contribute instead of making 3rd post just for funny reacts. Well, this one's obscure reference anyway, react with Big Ups if you got it let's see how many of us are there, fellow gamers.

So, some people pay more money for Fair Trade products, because they want to directly support farmers and add less fuel to capitalism machine. I understand and adore that, might do that myself at some point, providing I'll be able to afford that (cannot rn).

Some people don't eat meat because they're aware of how terrible fate of farm animals can be. Same as above, minus the economic factor, I'm just too damn lazy to change my life. Maybe in the future!

And some people don't support chinese companies, because they're aware of stuff that goes in China and don't want to contribute. Would they actually contribute by buying chinese products? Hard to tell. But once again, I totally understand. 

DS New Home stuff was wacky, people trashing on Tencent and other people reminind that Shengqu are the devs and stuff. And then that twitter contest controversy kicked in, haha. But here people are expressing their opinions regarding Tencent and China in general, and it definitely is relevant here in this thread.

 

Scott Pilgrim game got re-released but it requires Ubisoft account and usage of their platform. I really wanted that game, but screw Ubisoft. Their CEO covering up sexual misconduct, employees being overworked and stuff. Plague of all the AAA studios, really. So I just don't buy their games, even if I actually find them interesting (rare). I don't snag Epic Games freebies nor use their platform because of how Epic treats their workes, so same story.

Tencent did all that bad stuff aswell, and well, Epic is part of Tencent. Ubisoft probably too, lmao. Will I stop buying Klei stuff? Probably, but I haven't really bought anything for a long time anyway ;_; Not my cup of tea, and my DS phase is long gone.
