Today's Impulse is all about Epic Games' push to steal Valve's thunder

Whoever loses, we win!

Ever since launching its own storefront, Epic Games has been making a big push to corner some of the digital markets on PC. Clearly aiming some of Valve's pie, this push has seen Epic not only acquire some pretty big exclusive launches but poach others right from Valve. There's a lot to be said on the subject, so Dan and I sat down to discuss our thoughts on Epic's move into Steam's backyard.

Ultimately, consumers will come out on top. Whether or not Valve actually learns anything, this is likely to get different publishers thinking about how they can clean up their own digital storefronts and provide more user accessibility. Steam didn't get to the place it is overnight, so hopefully, we'll see that same kind of growth happen for Epic.

If you aren't a fan of videos and don't like staring at Dan's Half-Life 2 footage, why not check out our SoundCloud page? You'll get the same great discussion minus the Gordon Freeman camera. You can even lull yourself to sleep with our comatose voices. We're a great sleep aid.
