    Seriously???
     
    Ok now has come the time to unsub to him.
     
    A fucking lootcrate unboxing???
     
    Joe is a sell out end of.  How people can keep defending him is beyond me.  STILL no controversies vid!!  Ok he wants to do vids on film reviews and board games thats fine.  But an unboxing vid of lootcrate??  And only because they have backed his channel!  Yeah screw that.  The fans should always come before companies and they clearly no longer do as far as Joe is concerned.
  2. Warchief52 liked a post in a topic by Raizurhk in Other Joe do some reviews?   
    Ok this isnt for complaining about lack of reviews etc.
     
    But if Joe is really busy (as mentioned in his angry joe plays vid)  why not let other joe do some on his own?  I'd personally like to see him do a few reviews on his tod and on the plus side it would allow Angry joe abit more time for other stuff etc.
     
    Thoughts?

    You seem to think that just because I think microtransactions aren't a bad thing in of themselves, that I 'roll over' for AAA companies, as does anyone else with my opinion. I personally often complain how people disregard indie and doujin games (unless they are hyped indie game of the month like undertale, darkest dungeon, etc) for these matters, and only consider AAA like it represents the industry.
    You haven't listed a single game that you considered a bad greedy example that I purchased...So no, I didn't roll over and let them treat me like a walking bag of money, because they didn't get a cent from me. I'd even agree that many are greedy and underhanded, but micro transactions are certainly not the straw that broke the camels back.
  4. Raizurhk liked a post in a topic by Shagger in Rise of rthe tomb raider looks bloody amazing   
    Whilst I don't agree with the shit-flinging going on, I do agree with crab on the points being made. Just stop being so brazen and presumptions about. It is entirely possible for someone to prefer the old Lara and not be a misogynistic, horny man-child.
     
    The New Lara had a sense of vulnerability, but she wasn't even close to the whining break-a-nail bimbo that some people here claim. A young woman (I think she was quoted as being 19 in the game, but correct me If I'm wrong) starting her career in the field of archaeology seeking her first big discovery only to be thrown into an incredibly desperate and hostile situation. So you see, of course she's not gonna just step up and and blast away everything in her path without a care Rambo style, that's not what being tough is anyway. 
     
    Coincidentally, let me reference another Stallone movie to show you what I'm on about;
     

     
    No doubt Stallone's character is tough in this film, but he's also barely able to get out of half these situations alive including a point where he almost freezes to death, almost never fights any enemy at all, and when he does he's not single handedly blasting apart entire armies on his own, it's usually one on one and he would have died in the movie without his friends help on several occasions. So you see, the vulnerability in the character made the fact he got through it all more impressive, not less impressive. The director, Renny Harlin, believed this as well and actually cut scenes out because he thought Stallone looked "to badass" in them. The result is actually one of my favorite action films and I feel this movie is hugely underrated. The Tomb Raider reboot pulled of the same trick.
     
    By making the character with more vulnerability, yet still putting her though some incredibly intense situations (If anything, more intense that the originals had imo) but having her get though them made the action more immersive, made one care more and get way more invested in the character herself. So you see, she's not weaker because of her being emotional and vulnerable, she's tougher because of it and more impressive. Besides, I don't recall the old Lara cauterizing a wound with an arrow and lighter, surviving a shipwreck, a plane crash, a helicopter crash, two instances of ruins burning down around whilst still having to fight for her life as she did so, falling off more cliffs than a base jumper, river rapids, pits full of crazies, an ancient un-dead army of samurai, island manics trying to kill her at every turn, wild animals and all while sporting a full penetrating gut would she suffered at the start of the game. Not tough? Are you kidding? And that's just the first game. You could call that implausible but apparently this makes perfect sense;
     
    "We remember a woman who punched tigers in the face and faced down giant krakens without so much as a whimpering"
     
    Sorry demonsbane, but that is ridiculous. You couldn't suggest putting that in a game like Tomb Raider today because they would laugh you out the meeting.
     
    We all do seem to at least agree they downplayed the sexy in the character and that's a good thing. The hotpants are gone, the body shape itself more subtle and the wardrobe in the second game is also much more practical to the point where it's almost a bit boring. Still, a very sexy woman, but not really a sexualised one (there is a difference), no more so than any beautiful woman in pretty normal clothing. That's what a tank top is, normal, it only becomes a sexy item of clothing if a sexy person is wearing it, not like lingerie or those cat costumes sluts wear on Halloween for example.
     
    The Lara of old was of her time, but by modern standards she is underdeveloped and targets a more immature demographic, but there's nothing really wrong with her. The games were an early step into this style of gameplay. Cool and innovative at the time, but haven't aged well and developers have a better understanding of how to program them these days. There are even games of the time that did 3rd person platforming and/or action allot better, like Mario 64 and Metal Gear Solid. They had to start somewhere and I'm very thankful those games exist, but the reboot modernizes the original concept and by daring to differ they made a much better game. Is it a better Tomb Raider? That's more difficult to say, the original has to be the yard stick because it's original. Either way, the 2013 reboot and this sequel are both fantastic games in their own right.
  5. Shagger liked a post in a topic by Raizurhk in Rise of rthe tomb raider looks bloody amazing   
    I agree 100%.  he old Lara was fan service hell eidos even amitted it on multiple occasions.  the sheer fact her bust size was a mistake but they decided to leave it due to the feedback they received is testament to that.
     
    As for the old Lara being a badass yeah that was only because the games industry was saturated with burly blokes kicking ass over and over so they decided to include a woman.  The new Lara is far more believable and not only that we are still at the beginning of her story.  In the reboot she was just a normal girl that was forced to kill in order to survive. Now its upto the point where she is expecting to have to kill people so its easier for her to do.
     
    She still has the badass element there in troves but its believable and as a character i think the new one is one i can actually give a crap as to what happens to her rather then making it so the camera angle is just right that it zooms right in on her tits.
     
    As the the MT's im sorry haters but they are here to stay no matter how many people boycott the game because of them.  Hell i pretty much never buy anything but if i enjoy a game enough i may buy one every now and them so sue me.
     
    Rise of the tomb raider is an amazing game that improves on the first in pretty much every way possible.  It would be a shame to miss out on it just because of an element that isn't even that noticeable.

    Its ubisoft what did you expect?
     
    Rainbow 6 siege was a complete mess when it released and it still is. Assassins creed games have been getting worse and worse.  I have no doubt this game will be a broken mess on release and i can see the complaints about the loot system amassing instantly.
  8. Mexiguy liked a post in a topic by Raizurhk in The New Hitman Game Will Now Be Episodic   
    Episodic games are a bad thing.  If its a franchise i really like i want to play the damn game!  Not just a section of it then have to wait a period of time to continue playing.
     
    Maybe its just me but i just seems like a half assed way of making a game.  Like the effort isnt there they just want to start making money quicker rather then make sure its a good fun quality game before it hits the shelves.  Now if they release the first episode aswell as the full version at the same time then fair enough,  Atleast that way those that may need to spread the cost can do so and those that want to play the game in all its glory can do so aswell.

    I think if you focus on the bad points of gaming more then the good ones your maybe missing the point of gaming.  Alot of games can be guilty pleasures as they have terrible bits about them but the good parts make up for it.
     
    And some games are sooo bad it makes em good kinda.
  12. Mr_E_Meatshield liked a post in a topic by Raizurhk in The corruption of halo and star wars battlefront   
    But how do you know its garbage without playing it?  
     
    For an example im not the biggest fan of COD games but i will always give them a chance because the campaign is normally pretty solid.  Now i could be like you and pretty much say nah fuck those games but what does that solve?  i could potentially be missing out on a gem of a game because i just went with the "its the same shite every year" squad.
     
    But because i made my own opinion i bought Blops3 i was very surprised to find out i love the game an am having loads of fun playing it (though the campaign this time round made no sense to me at all)
     
    I just dont get why you would write off a game without ever trying it yourself.  Hell rent it to try it if you have to but saying its garbage without ever playing it and because some youtuber said it sucks is abit of a silly reason if you ask me.
  13. Chumbry42 liked a post in a topic by Raizurhk in The corruption of halo and star wars battlefront   
    Not having played Halo 5 or Battlefront kinda invalidates your opinion if you ask me. Your pretty much saying the games suck because some guy on youtube said they do.  This is whats wrong with the gaming community right now people refuse to make their own opinion on something and just go with the most widely accepted one instead.
     
    Ok Battlefront does suck in a big way BUT it still caters to hardcore starwars fans which is what it set out to do.
     
    343 have done a great job with Halo 5 just like they did with Halo 4 and most of reach,  Ok this time around the story is pretty meh and was completely obvious how it was going to end.  But all the core things that a halo game needs is right there as it should be.  
     
    Ofcourse these are just my opinions but these are coming from someone who has actually played said games.
     
    And i think somebody completely missed Shaggers point.

    AJSA Mission Statement:
    You probably should've read this before signing up here.
     
    Also your statement is contradicting itself. Saying that nobody should control the community, but you think that this community should rally behind Joe because he was attacked and act like the community's namesake. Angry Army is just a fun name Joe has for his fans, in the same way that Maximilian Dood calls his fans Dudes (or Doods). We are NOT an actual army at Joe's, or anybody for that matter, beck and call.
     
    Seeing how this thread ended should do you well.
     
    Yes, we've established that it's a piece of crap for us who don't like the game. But people still have a RIGHT to enjoy it if they want to. People who like these games aren't wrong for liking it. In the same way that people who like Call of Duty have a right to, despite it having very little changes or additions in every iteration. We, who don't like this game have a RIGHT to not buy it. We don't have a right to tell people to stop buying what they want or enjoying what they do.
  18. Raizurhk liked a post in a topic by Mr_E_Meatshield in The corruption of halo and star wars battlefront   
    I find this thread to be similar to those "Hate Call of Duty" Threads. Apparently, people who buy / like these games only did so because they were brainwashed. Sure Halo fanboys attacked Joe when he was criticizing the game. But that's because they're FANBOYS, not everyone who likes Halo 5 are going to be like that. Not everyone who plays these games are looking into these games' business models. Heck, not even all the people who bought Battlefront will be going out to buy the Season Pass. They're not wrong for liking what they like, they just do.
     
    Joe has been DDOS'd even before these games came out, nothing new there. Just Joe haters which have been around since before these games.
     
    Saying that the people who bought these games aren't real fans of Star Wars or Halo is one of the dumbest things I've heard:
    Guys who have a Weekly Star Wars Podcast are excited for the game, and like it so they can't be Real Star Wars Fans:

    Dude on the far left bought a PS4 just for the game as subsequent shows will show. He also started a group for fans of the show and who are playing the game to play together. Yep, those people aren't real Star Wars Fans at all. They're just brainwashed by EA it's not like they talk about Star Wars every week for seventy five weeks now.
     
    YUP NOT REAL STAR WARS FANS so much so that they run a Star Wars Facebook Group. They're totally not real fans.
     
    There are people who legitimately like it:

     
    There are people in these very forums who like Halo 5 too. Oh, hey look, a thread about saying what's wrong with the Requisition System and how it can be fixed. Go ahead say these people were just brainwashed and aren't real Halo fans.
     
    They're not marketing it for us who look into shady business models. I may not like this game, but I sure as hell aren't going to let other people bash people who do. People will like what they like for their own reasons. There are people who are legitimately having fun with these games, just because we don't like them, or just because Joe says these games are bad doesn't mean we have to jump on the hate train against these people. They're not forcing you to play these games, and unless you go up to them and shit on said games, they'll leave you alone. Some of them probably won't even mind if you didn't like the games.
     
    I didn't buy Battlefront, and have no intentions of doing so. Halo 5 is still one of the reasons that I want to get an X1, and I'm most likely not going to touch the multiplayer for that just like with Halo 4. You can't even say that Fanboys aren't real fans, since by definition Fanboys are so die hard fans of what they like that they go to extremes.
     
    The thread maker really has to stop jumping on poorly thought out bandwagons like his embarrassingly failed petition that proved he doesn't know how petitions work. Seeing most of his posts, he just says what he thinks we want to hear. It was clear that this was the case when he made the petition. He saw how things were going in this thread, and all of a sudden proudly posted that he made a petition against Battlefront.
     
    Now he's rallying people because some people attacked Joe? Dude, the AJSA isn't your or even Joe's personal army. It's a community where people talk about games and play games together. Joe can handle himself against these people. Joe's not even telling anyone to go after those kinds of people. This community isn't Joe's personal Gamer Army, much less yours. Are you some sort of Joe Fanboy?
      Not aware that if Battlefront or any new Battlefield game fails that EA will be fine, they'll just close down Dice I see.

    Same thing can be said about Call of Duty. A lot of people already dislike it, but Activision knows that those who like it will outnumber those who don't.
