down my face cuz I'm an asshole hey a new day of tech news and another reason to talk about the epic game store because they just keep on getting in the news for some reason and Here I am talking about the epic game store again epic games steam valve can you can you just meet their revenue share already for Christ's sake can you get you 88% as well and we could stop talking about this please Gabe haha well anyway if you remember I think it was a couple weeks back now valve put a system in place to kind of prevent or not even prevent if kind of isolates review bombing if they they have algorithms in place that if there's a huge influx of negative reviews they have a team of people over at valve to go check them out and if they see the reviews are unrelated to the actual game and there were just people bitching about random things they'll contain those reviews and they won't actually you know reflect in the review score of the game that is being review bombed now as we know Borderlands 3 is going to be a time exclusive on the epic game store because I just I just love I just love timed exclusives look again I get competition Rob Rob Rob but six months a measly six months – on top of it really but anyway Borderlands 3 is going to be a time exclusive on the epic game store and gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford was talking the previous installments of Borderlands still got review bombed even with valves new system in place and he made a comment on Twitter about it and this is what he had to say ironically that this misuse is possible and that steam is no interest in correcting this misuse even though they just attempted to whatever ready makes me kind of happy about to Kay's decision and makes me want to reconsider gearbox Publishing's current posture on the platform now of course someone responded back to him and saying which look I don't agree with review Bobby there was one time I was like alright I understand I don't agree with any form of review bombing I kind of gave it a little bit of an okay back with Metro Exodus when they pulled it and then people sort of review bombing the previous two installments of metro games looking back now I know just I'm changing my opinion fairly quickly yeah no review bombing should be allowed in any way shape or form well anyways someone on Twitter said hey if you didn't do an exclusivity deal at the epic game store your other games Borderlands 1 and 2 and Borderlands the pre-sequel wouldn't have gotten review bombed on Steam and basically what Randy Pitchford said is look that's victim-blaming bullshit blah blah blah and ended there pretty much or what I mean by ended there is that people went back and forth debating if Brady pitcher is right or so on and so forth it's it was a Twitter argument if you've been on Twitter for more than five minutes you know what I'm talking about well gee Randy you sure right we could always trust an epic game stores review system for games so we could you know portal answered we'll see what the reviews are there there's no review bombing there oh wait there's no review bombing because I literally just checked on the epic game store before making this video because you can't review games on the epic game store yet you know they're talking look valve and steam have many many many issues I have before the epic game stores even a thought I have bitch countless times about them and I'm not sitting there trying to put steam in good graces now I get it there's a lot of issues ok with steam but the epic game store is just bare-bones there's a need like you're making it like it's just fantastic experience it's not it's not it's a bare-bones store that just lets you buy games you can't review them it doesn't have it the same systems in place that steam does so what do you what are you trying to pull man look we know what it's about and I can't I'm not gonna stop talking about this it is about the money Lebowski that's what it's about they know when they go to epic games in the epic game store excuse me they're from the get-go they're gonna get eighty eighty percent revenue share and not start at seventy percent like they do on Steam they want more money and they're gonna make it about everything else because they know they look everyone knows everyone wants to make money but companies know if they come out and say look we don't think the epic game store is that great but we're they're gonna give us a bigger cut from the gecko if it's a big triple-a game we're pretty sure you're gonna buy it anyway and we'll make more money from the start that's why we're going there they know those sound terrible thing come out and say that so they're not gonna do it that's what that's what it's all about steam for Christ's sake I'm so tired of saying it but I'm gonna continue to say it just match the epic games to revenue share and 99% of these problems will go away yes developers and yes consumers and people watching this video I understand there are more issues with steam and valve than just the revenue share but this is the biggest one right now developers and publishers are seeing more money on the epic game store and that's why they're signing these exclusivity deals and they're like look we have a big triple-a game that's a sequel that we know people have been dying for they would buy it if they had to put their hands and cow turds to get a copy of Borderlands 3 we could sell it anywhere if we can make more money selling it in those cow turds and get a bigger revenue share we're gonna have people dig through those turds why did I go into cow turds I don't know but you get my point so valve just please just sign just sign what am I talking about valve just match their revenue share just do it now just do it now and most of these problems will go away there's other things they need to be fixed with steam I know their customer service is still to this day ass but that is the biggest thing that's making developers and publishers go over to the epic game store right now they see more money and a valve offers the same money if they would publish their games on Steam and match it perfectly we won't be having these stories anymore and Randy Pitchford won't be preaching on Twitter anymore I'm telling you it's all about the money everything at the end of the day is about the money this is rich a review tech USA signing out have a good one and right now my nipples are brushing against the desk and it was really annoying but I was on a rant and I couldn't stop and now my nipples are
