Hello I have recently joined the AJSA. I go by the gamer tag JLHartsock. I commonly use the PS4 and PC for gaming. I go to IGN and the AngryJoeShow for my game reviews and I have yet to be let down. I am an inside person and prefer to Read, Play Video Games and I am a fan of fast food. If you have any questions about me then ask away( as long as it isn't too personal or involves giving information involving my ID)

Something I read pulled me away from CoD 4 Remastered but I loved the original so I should probably look into it to for that modern shooter itch.
WaW and Blops 1 was a close tie, both had awesome zombies and loved the weapons. Played WW2 Beta and enjoyed it so hoping it pulls CoD out of that Garbage Tier rating that started post Blops 3.

Which COD series is your favorite? Mine is Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered. That alluring mix of compulsive unlocks, brilliant map design and powerful feedback is still hooking players to this day. Then there’s the peerless campaign. Bursting with unforgettable missions - Death From Above, All Ghillied Up, Charlie Don’t Surf to name a few - and a slither of surprising nuance, it’s the best war story the series has ever told.

I see your point but I have to agree with Shagger here. Steam and by extension any user reviews alone are not very reliable, allot of them are impulsive, not objective, fanboy fuelled and don't explain very well. Professional reviews tend to go into more detail and judge based on the whole thing rather that the less thorough, cherry picking approach. That's not to say there isn't issues worth professional Journalists either, then can be bias an not objective to since they do sometimes have to bow to commercial pressure.
I see independent reviewers like Angry Joe and Jim Sterling as a best of both and those are the types I find the most reliable but even they can make mistakes. Just recently Jim Sterling retracted his original Hellblade review because he gave a 1/10 based on a knee jerk reaction to an unfortunate game breaker which was mostly his own fault.
I take a balanced approach by reading both and looking for repeating accreditation's and criticism's, never relaying any one review.

I definitely feel steam is being left behind by game companies for many reasons...I'm not worried about steam fading to the background, what worries me is when you go into steam you see all the honest hard cold reviews and you can judge a game by it's reviews, if companies go to third party sites with no reviewing by members of the site...What do we have now? The only way we could know if a game was bad was if we bought it and critique it. I definitely see video gaming becoming a shady practice...thank god for people like joe!

The problem with that is games run worse on Linux than Windows 10 and, wether the blame goes to Microsoft or game publishers/developmers (and it's game publishers/develpoers who are to blame, for reasons I'll explain in minute), not all games are compatible with Linux. You'll need to spend the money you save on Linux on better hardware to match performance, so it just isn't worth it.
Microsoft hardly hold a monopoly over PC games, just a few exclusives from the XBox brand on Windows 10. If a publisher/developer doesn't do a Linux port of a game that's not Microsoft's fault.

I'll admit I joined steam and by the same extent "modern" PC gaming late in the game. However on the current experience of my previous PC, the current Laptop I'm using and the undergoing high end custom watercooled PC that I am currently building I'm a little worried about PC gaming and on Steam.
Twas once the case not so long ago that nearly all games could be bought through Steam....... but no more......
EA games have now to go through Origin........ (Well consider EA as a rather low benchmark here)
Ubisoft games (at least some) now have to go through Uplay. (of which every complaint you hear is 4 years out of date, when I was offline for a month Uplay was the only client that worked!)
Activision don't have an exclusive client and don't need one! In an ingenious move they now publish though......
.......Blizzard THE company to go to when you don't want the fans to blame you for anything! Not even when you release a greedy ass, time limited loot crate, RNG based, fee to play gambling simulator!
Hell I just got a code for Quake Champions but had to make not one but two new accounts to claim it! One from AMD for the code (since I bought a CPU from them) and then from Bethesda.net to actually download the client and play the fucking game!
Let's face it, it's only a matter of time before the likes of Square Enix and WB follow suit here. All the games from these publishers will be exclusive to their own clients before to long. Steam is doomed with the except of it's own and inde productions.
I'm sorry If I was a little ranting and sarcastic here, but this has been bothering me for a while. Steam is not a godsend, never was and publishers are taking notes from Blizzards book and realising they can make more money without it.
skorgezagreat liked a post in a topic by PlasticFrogCG in how I feel about destiny 2's release
Same here. It looked very cool, but once I discovered that you actually had to leave the game and go to the Destiny website (with a registered account) just to view the background files you unlocked when exploring really killed all my interest in the game. Would it really have been that hard to include the world-building information in an in-game database like Mass Effect???
Beyond that gripe, I found the game itself to be very generic even if the setting was mildly interesting.
skorgezagreat liked a post in a topic by Ranisel in will call of duty become the flash games of today....
Hey! That's really offensive, there ARE good flash games, and the "good" Call of Duty games are like Big Foot, people say they've seen one, but there's no tangible evidence to back it up.
But, considering ActiVision is CoD's Publisher, I'd say that it would all fit perfectly in the Google Play store with the other "games" there.

Well yeah considering there are stories of people getting doom to run on refrigerator menus and calculators. Now we just need to get doom to run on a thermometer.

Guess it's possible..... just imagine some kid in the middle of an exam suddenly jumping out of his chair screaming homophobic slurs and calling someone's mom a slut!
Well all be sitting around our kids saying "Why did you have to go do that in the middle of class! Back in our day we kept it legit bruh! Pay attention to what yo doing! Ya'll only get those kill-streaks when you focus bruh!"
skorgezagreat liked a post in a topic by Shagger in why minecraft needs to step up it's game
The game has mods on PC and that makes the possibilities almost limitless, but i think the main problem is that it's been around a while and allot of people have moved on. Mincraft ain't really my thing, but i do get the appeal, but eventually interest in any game dies down over time.

Looked on the forums, but didn't see it here. So I thought I'd share.
If you're looking for new building ideas, techniques, or just want to bring your building skills to the next level, I recommend checking out this YouTube channel.
skorgezagreat liked a post in a topic by neurokshinobi in Community Games Request
Hello there, I've got a few games, actually.
League of Legends, king of rage.
Dungeon Defenders 2. It's a hybrid tower defense and third person 'shooter'. 'shooter' because some of them are melee. Currently five heroes out, plenty of maps. It takes awhile to get to end game content, but it's fairly solid for a beta title that's free to play.
Warframe. I hope this one is pretty well known by the gaming community like LoL. Ninjas, with guns, in space. It's totatly awesome.
Killing Floor 2. Gore, guns, zombies and those annoying sirens, always messing up your explosives.
Path of Exile. F2P Diablo, essentially. Crazy tech tree, decent combat, tons of options. Tetris inventory system, for some reason.
Mass Effect 3 MP. Play as a Krogan with a giant hammer? Yes please. Also, Murderguard (Novaguard) Fun stuff.

Weird seeing reaction vlog Youtubers shift from, "The Illuminati is trying to destroy us Youtubers and are taking away our ads by pretending some of us do bad things," to "This Youtuber is abusing his children for views." Whatever brings in their own views I guess.

All [AJSA] Individuals must obey the Chain of Command or Risk Strikes or possibly a Ban. Please be respectful to Officers and obey our structure of order. We anticipate large membership so this is very necessary to make the Angry Army function at its best!

We are trying to create a fun and friendly gaming environment for all types of Gamers! Thank you for your cooperation.
The Front Line
Recruit - New Recruits to the Angry Army are welcomed with open arms! Recruits may participate in the AJSA and open gaming events but must prove their sincerity in participating our gaming community by “Earning their shield” and becoming a full fledged Member of the AJSA! They may do this by proving themselves friendly, dedicated, and competent on the battlefield and by participating actively on our forums.
Recruits are Automatically Promoted to Full Member after (30 Days) with No Strikes on their Account.
Veterans and Higher Ranks may recommend a Recruit to be Promoted sooner with at least 2 weeks of high activity.
Officers will then review the Recruit and approve them for full membership.
Member - Loyal, Trained and Skilled, these Soldiers are the Heart and Soul of the Angry Army! You have proved yourself among the best, congratulations! Members are also considered first over Recruits for Limited Events, Beta Key Giveaways, and AJSA Internal Prize Tournaments.
Members represent the Angry Army within the Gaming Community and strive for excellence in any game they play!
Veteran - Automatically awarded to members who have been in good standing for (90 days) during our first 6 months in operation. This Requirement goes up to (180 days) after our "Launch Window". Members of the Previous Angry Army may become Veterans Automatically with Commander Review and Approval.
Veterans are considered Members for all rank purposes but whose service has been proven, respected and now recognized.
Sergeants - An active member who goes above and beyond within the community. Training and Improving other Members gaming skills and offering regular friendly help to new recruits. This is the highest Possible Rank achievable before an Officer Rank.
Sergeants are Hand Selected by Commanders for grooming towards an Officer Position or to simply help lead our Front Line Troops in battle. It is only from this pool that New Officers are considered in new and current games when needed. Only Sergeants and above may be considered to run new AJSA Official Games.
When no Officers are present at an event or in-game a Sergeant will lead squads in game by default if they so choose. Sergeants do not have the power to moderate the boards or discipline other members but are trusted to inform Officers of any potential problems.
Game Specific Officers - These are members who have displayed an aptitude for leadership. An outstanding member of the community, they are responsible for scheduling events, meetings, training sessions and ensuring a positive gaming environment for all members in their respective game.

Game Specific Admins -
AJSA Commanders - These are Senior Officers who have displayed outstanding leadership skills. They must be diplomatic, decisive and adept at multi-tasking. They have all the powers and permissions Game Officers do. They may also act as the AJSA Server Admin’s if they have the required knowledge.
This is the highest level of work and responsibility within the AJSA. It requires an immense amount of free time and flexibility. They oversee all of the AJSA activities within all our official games and are ultimately responsible for coordinating regular training, meetings and events with our Officers. Game Commanders are always considered Commanders regardless of what game they are playing in.
The AJSA Council - These are the specific individuals that Lord Commander Joe relies on for advisement and executive actions. The Council determines the direction and focus of the Angry Army. Council members have the power to manage and administer all aspects of the AJSA’s direction on behalf or in advisement of the Lord Commander through majority votes. Game Commanders report directly to the council in High Command Meetings to give sit-reps on the state of the community in regular monthly meetings.
