"Comiendoles El Mandado"

This Spanish idiom translates literally as "Eating their groceries," and English' closest equivalent would be "stealing the thunder" except the Spanish version makes an allusion specifically to an upstart stealing your thunder from under your nose while you were busy navel-gazing.

Just the way Epic is doing to Valve right now.

Valve right now could be doing lots of things to secure their reign and keep Epic in line: They could be strengthening relationships with publishers, improving their contractual offers, or becoming even friendlier to users... hell, they could even resort to good ol' mafia tactics in a pinch.

...instead, Saint Gabe prefers investing his precious time persecuting anime titties.

Time for Steam to stop sleeping on its laurels. Origin and Uplay were easily ignored, but with Epic you finally got some actual competition, and they're going for the yugular.

Peace.

P.D: I have been nursing a wrist injury for almost a month now, so the next month of comics or so may be cutting a corner or two. Apologies beforehand.

@1958Fury: Not quite, our idiom rather refers to an upstart taking advantage of an opening, not a bully taking something by force. But thanks anyway!
