Listen: Randy Pitchford, Mcnamara, Rice discussed on Giant Beastcast
"The micro transactions and put a tweet up saying despite gearbox Randy Pitchford comment about quote, no micro transactions and quote in borderlands three during today's livestream. We've been told cosmetic items are still purchaseable. So I guess I was also from an interview they had done with which is the pitch for fun accurate tweet. It is flip. So oh boy. When you want to start with. So then Randy replies. Randy Pitchford who is the CEO president of the the big bigger, Ed care. Box borderlands three. Yeah. I almost need to hear like this. I I don't know. Okay. Randy replies. Directly to this tweet saying there's no Randy pitchman pressure. So I wish I could do one. I don't okay anyway, says come on guys. Shitty. Click bait headline literally seconds before. I said that I made it very clear, we're gonna do more cosmetic stuff like we didn't borderlands to you know, I was talking about premium currency and loot boxes kind of stuff not being in our game. And then immediately after that rice writes why you guys would fuck me on this is beyond me. Thanks a lot. And let's just without diving into every single tweet in the storm. This went on for a while and involved him directly, adding any McNamara still going to still you still this morning and even said, yes, it's four o'clock in the morning as of fifteen minutes ago when we took a break while you guys are in the bathroom. He may not be yelling game informer right now. But he is definitely personally responding to lots of people who are who are commenting on this from what I could gather from some of this. Well, my impressions, I yeah. My sideline. What do you? Call it quarterback. Armchair quarterback. Yeah. Be rainy rain these Radi. Stop stop tweeting for stop tweeting. I think I think you think you're doing good and trying to defend your game and your team. But I think you should get the person next in line and have them take over the megaphone and the borderland three megaphone to promote the bless you and your gentle demeanor because that is probably not the approach. I would take if this if I was a PR person working on that game. And so the other thing and trying to see here. What I think Randy Pitchford is trying to say is that when I said micro transactions. I meant stuff that is paid a win stuff that is game affecting not cosmetic stuff, and then get into odd semantic argument about what's a micro transaction. Some."
