Boo. I loathe epic. And just so that the publishers don't get the money of me they were hoping for I'm waiting with Detroit become human metro and Borderlands 3 until they're in the sales bin for steam.

You can buy these games on day one without giving the publishers/developers a penny for titles that are on the Humble Store.

All you are doing is talking more about Epic and getting their name out there more and more which leads to more money in their pockets.

That and depriving yourself over good games.

Nah just blowing off steam I suppose. I don't mind missing out in those games for how long it takes, it's my principles I'm working here

As for the humble store, if I buy there I don't need the epic launcher?

Would you rather Valve had a monopoly ? While I may not agree with some of Epics decisions they will hopefully force Valves hand to stop being so lazy, Outside of the VR Index headset which lets face it isn't exactly revolutionary, They have done absolutely nothing Since Portal 2 came out nearly a decade ago.

Yeah I don't get how "principles" would make you defend a company that spent years fighting anti-consumer legal battles with governments over their policies and eventually only settled it by achieving the bare minimum required under EU law. Even EA were putting them to shame when it came to customer services & store policies.
