Unsurprising I just read that the Borderlands boss is happy about the move concerning their reviews. Yes, now they get to be on a platform where people can’t voice their complaints (or anything) and potential buyers can’t make informed opinions off of other buyers.
And yet making reviews about your shitty games or business practices is the misuse, not moving to a platform that disallows user reviews after a large money bag was thrown at you. These people are so god damn pathetic when it comes to the money they want to earn.
“Ironically, that this misuse is possible and that Steam has no interest in correcting this misuse makes me kind of happy about 2K’s decision and makes me want to reconsider Gearbox Publishing’s current posture on the platform,” he said on Twitter.
What the review bombers need to do now is find a new way to review these games and developers and make their games and decisions suffer for it, since Steam is silencing them and the new platform has no way to voice yourself. I’m confident they will do it. Reddit will play a part, I’m sure of it.
