  1. I'm not criticizing the quality of the review. Joe's reviews are honest and informing, there's no disputing that. Joe is putting out less reviews, when he used to do them more regularly, yet the quality of the show has largely remained the same.
  2. I'm hoping it gets me hooked like New Vegas did.
  3. I mean, if Joe is going to be making a review every other month or so, the least he could do is put more effort into them. The show hasn't seen any major improvement and it's been going on since 2009. And no, a better camera doesn't count.
  4. You're also less likely to get robbed.
  5. That refund policy took ten years to be implemented. Every other storefront has that by default at the VERY BEGINNING. Even EA's Origin had the refund policy at launch. And just because there is a refund system to refund shit games, that doesn't make the fact that Valve allows those shit games to be on the storefront or on Greenlight any less ridiculous. I didn't say they were still charging for mods, my point was that Valve can try to force shit systems onto their community (such as the poorly planned paid mod system) and if they get too much flak because of it, all they have to do is get rid of the system and everybody forgets it ever happened. If any other company did that, no one would be as forgiving as they are to Valve.
  6. I doubt two people not giving Valve money will change much, considering the millions they make. I'm suggesting that the community that surrounds Valve changes it's attitude towards the company: don't let them get away with the kind of stuff you wouldn't want other companies doing and stop acting like they can do nothing wrong. I have no problem spending money on Steam, Valve will do what they please whether or not I do.
  7. I once loved Valve. As of recently however, I've decided that I don't care much for them. They're a company that cares only on how much money they can make. They don't care about their community. I came to that conclusion based on a few things. For example, Valve has yet to fix it's Greenlight system. They don't care what kind of shady shit happens on Greenlight and they don't care what games get on Steam, despite the increasing pile of shitty products that continue to make their way onto the storefront. Probably because Valve gets a cut of the profit, idk. Instead of focusing on adding meaningful changes to their multiplayer games, they prefer to shit out more and more virtual skins onto those games. Lastly, it took ten years for Valve to decide to add a refund system to their storefront. Since 2005, there had been no proper refund system in place; and no having to go through Valve's trash customer service for the refund doesn't count. That's all I can think of off the top of my head, if anyone can add something to that list, please let me know. My biggest problem is how people let Valve get away with this kind of stuff, yet if a different company like EA or Ubisoft tried pulling stunts like Valve does, they would get destroyed by people. Why the hell does Valve get a pass? Oh wait, right, Valve is that company that made that Half-Life game, has that one fat guy as head of the company, and has four big sales every year, so yeah they can do no wrong. It's that attitude is has made Valve arrogant enough to do this kind of stuff. Because Valve knows that they can do stuff like that and get away with it, scot-free. Remember that poorly implemented paid mod thing Valve tried to shove down our throats? Yeah, me neither. I also think it's ridiculous that when Valve does make actual improvements, it's only when the controversy is too much and they try to save face. And when they do that, people praise the fuck out of them. Again, if any other company tried to do that, they would get destroyed. For a company that gives two shits about the community that made them as big as they are today and only takes action when it's in their benefit, Valve gets a lot of undeserved love. The "Valve can do no wrong" attitude needs to stop. When that happens, Valve will begin to think twice about how they conduct their business.
  8. Many achievements in games are skill-based or require lots of grinding, such as PD2. Those kinds of achievements aren't worth the time and dedication needed in order to achieve them.
  9. Robot voice throughout the entire playthrough or you're a fraud.
  10. I want to play to pick up chicks, because apparently they like that stuff. I like listening to EDM, rock, and doo-wop.
  11. Sounds interesting. Have any idea when the first video is going to be up?
  12. You ever do a pacifist run, Shep? Basically, go through the game without killing anyone or being the cause of someone's death (i.e. having your companions kill someone, dialogue choices). I always fail at those because I get bored without killing anyone.
  13. Gearbox isn't a company I really trust with the IP. Now if it was a developer like Bethesda, maybe.
  14. The weapons are locked based on level, again? I don't get why they don't just keep the BO2 format for weapons and equipment. It's a terrible idea to force people to grind just to use the weapon they want.
  15. I was thinking of learning to play the guitar. Anyone in the community play those things? Got any tips for a complete noob?
