    Fractured Space
    Designed by members of the Strike Suit Zero developer team, Fractured Space is a capital ship space combat game, offering PvE, Co-Op and PvP. Within the game, players choose a ship class and customize its loadout further to specialize the ship, with teams being able to exploit synergies between different ship specializations. Given the vast potential of the game and the fact that it is free2play, we deemed this game to be an excellent choice to host for the EF.
    As such we will host the second Fractured Space event this Saturday, the 11th of Febuary at 4pm EST/ 9 pm GMT.
     
    Dedicated Players

    We encourage commitment and attendance within the EF, thus we offer attendance pips for those players who register themselves as dedicated players (You can still attend all events without making this commitment). As such dedicated players promise to attend at least 50% of the events, for which they will receive said attendance pip at the end of the month.
     
                             
     
    If you want to suggest ideas, discuss the game or make other recommendations, then feel free to do so in the EF forum here: http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forums/topic/31185-future-ef-games-post-your-suggestions-here/   If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the EF leaders, namely Acepilot666, ArisingFlame, Brandykins1982, Conan or Digs.

    Watching Someone Else Play Resident Evil 7 On YouTube: The Kotaku Review

    Related to this article
    Perpetually offended "journalist" trying to find things to be mad about



    This started off as amusing to me since it's a guy who does nothing but write hit pieces complaining about articles or people posting things that he clearly didn't read, didn't or pretends not to understand, or in a recent case was two years old. It ended up getting funnier as people told him the article was clearly about the watching of Let's Plays with some joke content thrown in, causing him to call their arguments autistic and then leading him to lie about the LPer not having his content linked in Kotaku's article (checking the article above will see the Youtuber mentioned by name multiple times, his profile linked with his name, and his video linked, giving him views and putting readers one click away from being on the upload on his page). Seeing that he has so many followers, a dedicated site to hosting his whining, was a former editor of Gameranx, and has so many people positively sharing this blatant lie as if it were true, it does serve as a good reminder to actually look into random criticism and memes against gaming websites and personalities. Even more so when there are so many websites and Youtubers trying to make a living off of manufacturing outrage or producing angry reaction videos/articles.
    One obvious example frequently linked for years is an image complaining about IGN reviews with brief sections taken from the final score with no context, with the attempt being to make it look like the writers is complaining about things like a Pokemon game having water in it when that actually refers to content and balance issues in the game. Moral is it's good to actually read things, better to attempt to understand them, and if you're one of the worst writers in an industry and have multiple journalists and developers in that industry referring to you as a constant source of embarrassment, you probably shouldn't attempt to complain about one of the best.
    Meanwhile the Let's Player and his fans, who Ian tried to make it look like he was angry for, had this response to Kotaku's article.

    Christopher makes some pretty good XCOM 2 let's plays that I've watched over the last year and is currently trying out the Long War 2 mod if you want to see how that plays.
