CAN WE ALL PLEASE STOP MISPLACING BLAME?
You wanna blame someone for the fact you can't buy your games on Steam, don't blame the game companies or Epic, BLAME VALVE.
Valve are REFUSING to drop their revenue split to 12%. They can afford to, but that would cut their massive profit margin to less than half and they don't want to. Valve want you to stay loyal to Steam and keep making (probably) billions, but they still refuse to make Portal 3, Half-Life 3 or anything new and awesome.
Imagine you own a game that'll sell several million copies. You wanna sell the game in the store that carves 30% of your earnings or do you wanna sell it in the store that only takes 12%?
It's pretty simple maths:
Sell 1,000,000 copies at £40 each (I'm a Brit, I work in £) so that's £40M.
Sell with Steam: you keep £28M
Sell with Steam and use Unreal Engine: you keep £26M
Sell with Epic: you keep £35.2M
That's before tax ofc.
Quit blaming Epic and the game companies when the only thing keeping these games off Steam is Valve's greed.
Epic's launcher platform is garbage. They do not give you full speed downloads. Takes me 40+minutes to download 1-2gb update for fortnite. Took me 20minutes to download entire Apex game on Origin, like 13gb. Steam also gives me full speed. On that note... Epic can kiss my hairy bum.
I think Steam has actually lost it's plot a while ago they have abused their power, players and developers at the same time. They have thought they are above everything and everyone. So I am all for leaving steam and using developer's platforms to play the games...
Wtf ok you never published a game but.. It's not the store's decision at all. It's all on the dev. Epic games just had the better deal of not taking 30% of the revenue and the dev decided to publish it there instead. There was no input from Epic games at all. I dont understand why people are now mad at epic games. Makes no sense.
+ProTurials first: steam doesn't restrict developers from publishing in other stores. Ubisoft requires you to use 2 launchers at a time because of that. Second: no, they literally payed for the exclusivity. Either way, as a consumer I will ignore every game that ends up "exclusive" in that store and will pirate it if I'm interested in it. I won't support people who force me to use their shitty launcher instead of steam.
+ForOne814 no they don't. They just don't take that much money and thus offer the better deal. So yeah, compared to steam you could say they offer them money.. But they don't do it literally. Publishing a game costs money. Steam takes 30%, epic games takes 12%, steam takes 100$ initially, Google play takes 25$. they will never pay you to publish your game on their platform. you pay them so you have access to the massive audience the store can present your game to and manage sales for you. The ones that pay you for publishing your game exclusively are the console developers. Sony and Microsoft. Because their products are getting sold more if there are great titles that people want to play but it's only for Xbox or ps4. On PC stores, mosts stores don't allow publishing your game to another store so that's why they say "exclusively for epic games store" because every fucking game on steam is also exclusively on steam, an steam definitely didn't pay for that.
Who doesnt want a basic 28 core system? You just need a 3000 dollar CPU, a 1500 dollar motherboard, a 1000 dollar cooling solution, 1000 dollars of memory and 2 PSU's.
I just dont see what all the complaining is about.... Sounds perfectly reasonable to go with my 2500 dollar graphics cards.
Epic should have just offered the game at a discounted price on their store. Gamers who would have appreciated Epic Games Store's offering would have easily bought it there, if the product was any good. Making anything exclusive is *not* consumer friendly because it limits consumer choice. I would have paid $10 more for the game on Steam because I appreciate the features Steam has, for example, but many people I know who don't give a crap would have bought it on the Epic Games store to save $10. That's a free lunch for just buying the game somewhere else.
Aggressive moves like that are bad because Epic is trying to knock out competition rather than actually compete.
For everyone defending Epic store:
• They have terrible security. ( 80 MILLION ACCOUNTS were exposed last week!)
• They have terrible customer service. (Just Google it)
• Games are more expensive on Epic due to regional pricing
. (Metro Exodus being an example since while is US price is lower, the EU price is still around the same as it was on Steam. Let that sink in. )
• You can't play games offline
• Limited social features
• No screenshots
• No controller support
• They broke EU laws! (And still do!)
• Scummy tactics. (You had to tick a box to opt out of emails, etc.)
• They are partially owned by Tencent. (A Chinese company that SELLS USER DATA TO THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT! Read that again. )
• No achievements
• No cloud saves
• No game forums. (Many people went to Steam for Subnautica support.)
• Epic makes you pay the transaction fee when purchasing games (Like this.)
• They are anti-consumer! (They pay for exclusive rights to games to try and force you to use their store.)
• They can refuse refunds even if you meet the criteria
. Read that again.
• No reviews
, so you can't tell if a game is bad or not unless you Google it.
• No Linux support.
let your wallet speak guys don't buy from the shitty epic store , epic games are dicks right nwo
How is making a game exclusive to Epic Games, good for competition? Wouldn't letting everyone sell at their own price be more competitive? If Epic wants to be competitive they should sell for a lower price...like they did.
Now you can _pay_ a insanely large amount of money to be spied on by eero!
Wtf guys this is a seriously disturbing sponsor.
Also who the f would pay nearly $700 to only cover 3500 sq. ft. I have one centrally located Ubiquity-Pro AP that covers my 3 story (4 with basement) lath & plaster 4000+ sq. ft home that only cost $250. Hell I get a bar or two outside around my house too.. Normally I don't mind your choice of sponsors but this one rubs me the wrong way.. Might just be me thought, still love the content!
_Edit: Thought was supposed to be though._
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
