    Because they can't afford current gen maybe or they wanna play old gen games still?

    I haven't posted in a long damn time, but I saw this thread got revived when I got an e-mail for it.
    If you look at my first post, I was on Joe's side. Not because I'm a fanboy and not because I think his fans are retarded, but because of the way fans talk to him like they know him personally.
     
    1. It's his damn channel. He created it.
    2. He didn't force anyone to subscribe or love him. You did that yourselves.
    3. Just because he has fans, doesn't mean he should bow down to their wishes. Sure, he should, but he doesn't have to.
    4. Nobody really knows what's best for his channel or him,  only he does.
    5. What's happening behind that Joe video, behind his camera, we don't know. Who are we to judge?
     
    I do agree with fans on one thing and that's several promises he made that he never ended up making true. If you will make  a promise like that, you should really do your best to fulfill it. I can understand the blow that Joe is getting and I honestly think some of it is deserved, but I harshly disagree with how the blows are done.
    "I've been your loyal sub and you do this to me and us? fuck off you sell out."
    "Used to be a great channel. now he's just getting fat off of the money he milks from his shitty movie reviews"
    etc etc etc, any insults or judgmental comments, I'm harshly against it. 
     
    You are not his mother or his father, you haven't done anything for him besides clicked the sub button and watched his all previous videos when mighty Joe was great. He did all the hard work, you just watched and laughed at it and now most fans think that they deserve some kind of compensation? No. Also, if you donated him money, for anyone that did, also, that was your choice. Nobody forces you upon it. It's your fault, if you regret it now. It's kind of like preordering a video game. Risks involved.
     
    He wants to make money and he will do it any way he likes it. The hard way, the easy way, the fast way - who are we to judge him? If his channel fails because of his current decisions, only he can blame himself. And if that happens, the fans who hated him can taps themselves on the back and say they warned him.

    I subbed that year he did the most reviews, then he started doing alot of console games or that was my opinion maybe I was wrong but that what it seemed to me. So I quit watching his channel, didnt unsub but wasnt interested in what he was reviewing, showing, and then he added that other guy, which I cant stand, and if he's on whatever Joe's talking about I close the video. Other Joe is cool beard guy isn't.
     
    I think he might of went a bit overboard with his reaction video, and calling people entitled, I don't feel entitled. I just dont watch what I don't like. And to be honest there's been a lot of stuff over the past two years that I havent watched on his channel cause I don't want to watch that stuff. I also don't comment on his channel don't watch the Twitch or have a stupid twitter account.
     
    He can do whatever he wants with his channel and I'll watch what I want to watch and skip all the rest. Get over it people!

    I just remembered something about it when I made an account, but maybe it was for something else.
    Anyway, Germany was awesome! The only thing that really made me uncomfortable was that I didn't speak the language. But even then, if you ran into someone who didn't speak English they were very patient and you could get by with a mixture of charades and what few words I picked up. Just an absolutely beautiful country, though!
    Italy was a bit more overwhelming, there were just so many people everywhere it was kind of hard to really enjoy the grandeur of the monuments. And the way Italians drive is scary!
    I've really never been much of a beer drinker, but I am now hooked on radlers and colaweizen!
  5. StrangePinkFox liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in What are your thoughts on Quake Champions?   
    Well remakes are fine as long as they are done right imo. If you read my first post, I was very skeptical about it, which is no surprise due to how many games hype you up and fail, same with remakes, but I might have been wrong with Quake with what I heard so far. I heard good things about it from beta players. I'm glad I was wrong.
  6. Apex Spartan liked a post in a topic by Ranisel in What are your thoughts on Quake Champions?   
    What is "Quake's day"? Quake is fun and I for one would love to see a new Quake game, DOOM and Wolfenstein were revivals done well and thus I'm inclined to believe they can handle Quake as well, ID Software know what they are doing. (PS: Sorry Wolfenstein:The New Order is actually NOT developed by ID Software, it's actually from MachineGames) 
    Besides there's plenty of "New games" around, if you don't like the idea of a new Quake for some inexplicable reason don't play it.
    But again, with Halo,Overwatch and DOOM's Call of Duty-like Multiplayer I think Quake is exactly what people need right now, something to remind them what an ACTUAL ARENA SHOOTER is.

  8. Crazycrab liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in Call Of Duty: WW2 Reveal Trailer...OHH MY GOSH!   
    Exactly!
     
    I don't know why people are so crazy about WW1 or WW2 games, which we played throughout entire fucking early 2000s and there is still plenty that came out after and even now, just not from huge studios. It's going to be nothing else, but those old same games in better graphics and the MP will be riddled with all the other generic cosmetics and shit that most FPS games have now.
     
    These guys will probably do a better job than BF1 campaign, the MP will be probably as any other COD just with WW2 skin. One thing I can say that's kinda new is this: at least the graphics look visually more impressive. Not on BF1 level, but pretty close. That's new for COD. 
    At least I hope they add feature so you can play as Nazis or Japanese too, if there will be any missions there on the Pacific. I'm kinda getting tired of WW2 games played from Allies side all the time. 
     
    Also if people are gonna bitch about this game (unless they fuck it up), then gamers really don't know what they want. Thousands wanted a WW2 COD, they got it. Let's see how it will be accepted.
  9. Apex Spartan liked a post in a topic by Crazycrab in Call Of Duty: WW2 Reveal Trailer...OHH MY GOSH!   
    I've said before that I was never to keen on these franchises going back to these timelines because it's been done to fucking death already.  I will give credit were it's due though, I do prefer this slightly more historically accurate and gritty approach to the idea over DICE's jumping the shark, over the top Michael Bay bullshit.
     
    I might have even kept my hopes up........ but unfortunately I think it's pretty safe to say that Activision is inevitably going to ruin this with some kind of anti-consumer crap......  I really hope I could be proved wrong.

    Okie dokie it's being looked into, gonna lock this to prevent any unnecessary discussion. But to point out, you weren't found banned on the discord server.
  11. Crazycrab liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in Kicked/banned from AJSA Discord?   
    Yeap, tried it. Will see what happens now.
     
     
    Yeah, I'll join the server, but I wanna know if I got kicked or banned first if it was a bug so it left on it's own
     
     
    Thanks man!
  12. Apex Spartan liked a post in a topic by Crazycrab in Kicked/banned from AJSA Discord?   
    Well I don't see you on server list, I'd try re-installing the client, changing your password and joining the server again.
  13. ichig1vsnarut0 liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in Kicked/banned from AJSA Discord?   
    So I've been having some major issues with Discord lately, on my phone and PC. My language keeps changing randomly to any language and one time I was randomly a member of 2 servers which I never joined or got an invitation to.
    Yesterday though, a friend of mine complained that "I" kept on spamming calls to him, so he blocked me and got pretty mad. I also noticed I'm not a member of AJSA anymore on Discord.
     
     
    I'm not sure if someone hacked me, if it's a bug or IF, I got kicked/banned from the server for breaking some rules, which would mean I was probably hacked then (in case if I spammed chats or posted inappropriate content)
     
    In case if I was banned, can I get a confirmation here by any of the mods or admins? And if I was, can you tell me why?
    If I wasn't banned, then "I" probably left the server. 
     
    So I don't know if it's a bug or I'm hacked. As I said, my Discord has been getting me into weird issues lately (language changing, leaving/joining random servers) and spamming calls to a guy.

    I was a little disappointed when they announced a port rather then a sequel but at least it's a good port.
  16. Apex Spartan liked a post in a topic by Shagger in Angry Joe, invest in your own website to remake it like Rooster Teeth's?   
    A few points to make;
     
    As others have said, the Rooster Teeth website forums at best look no better than this site. The AJSA went through a big update only last year, not likely to happen again anytime soon. Joe's youtube channel, and thus his youtube drama's and difficulties, having nothing to do with us, so we cant put in changes wether want them or not. As crab pointed out, RT have commercial connections and obligations that make it much easier to use copyrighted content in youtube videos, resources Joe doesn't have. Hosting his videos here with ads woukd still come under DMCA laws, so it wouldn't help. Joe himself very rarely visits this wesite and has no part in its day to day operations, so it's unlikely he'll even see your post anyway.

    San Andreas. Classic and king. 
     
     
    The most exaggerated and hilarious storyline, but a lot of fun. From being a small time gangster to randomly working for the fucking government and throwing down fucking bombs from jets, fighting the military and breaking into a top secret military facility to steal a top secret military project AND  then after all that, just casually goes back to solving all the gangster shit back at home.

    Guest liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in What upcoming 2017 games do you think will suck, or at least not be that good?   
    The graphics in ME:A are really good. I don't know why people flame the game on graphics, they are pretty good. Specially when you walk around Tempest, ARKs and Nexus - the metal reflections, the textures on metal floors, like really clean and slick and then you see a few scratches reflect off in lighting. The lighting, the reflections, textures on most places look beautiful.
     
    These are just some screens I took on high graphics (with 1-2 things on medium)

     

     

     

     

     

     
     
     
    The facial animations aren't even that bad at all. In cutscenes (like one above), you can see how good the faces look and animations. They are really detailed. When characters frown, you can see how their skin tightens and everything and emotions look good. Now depending on how you make your Ryder (dont go with default Sara - default guy is fine), then you are pretty much fine. Make a custom character with thin and not too big mouth and you will avoid the hilarious faces and mouth animations.  It's the normal dialogue throughout the game when you randomly talk to NPCs, that the faces are somewhat stale, but it's easy to get over it.
    I won't defend the game, they had 40 million dollar budget and they fucked it up, but it's no reason to hate the game. It's worth on sales, if not for 60.
     
    The game's story is not bad either, gameplay/combat is a shit ton of fun and huge improvement from previous MEs. I went to play this game with extremely low expectations. When I was waiting for my Ryder to show her face in-game, I was like "holy shit lets wait for the ugly face" and she looked CUTE af in most scenes. 
    I will play a 2nd playthrough with male Ryder probably. 
     
    Shit ton of content in the game and exploring is pretty fun too.
     
     
    I think the game deserved the flack, but I think it made the game look worse  than it actually does. It's a good game to play imo and so far it's a solid 7/10 for me. Would of been an 8 if it wasn't for performance issues at some places and a few bugs.
     
     
    As for what I think will be the worst games of 2017...eh I don't know. I actually thought it would be Andromeda until I actually played it lol
     
    My current cents are on Battlefront 2 or any COD game if it comes out this year.
  19. Apex Spartan liked a post in a topic by Rain in Mass Effect 2 and 3   
    I really wonder if that "my face is tired" is an intended sick joke from the devs after all the flak for the early heat they were getting for facial animations etc. Or if the writer just royally screwed up because that comment makes absolutely no sense lol. I do remember another similar quote that made me laugh working at Namco in WarHammer: Battle March...when Thorgar I think it was met the shadow priest dude after only hearing his voice he says something like "This is your face?" Not "So we finally meet" but "This is your face?" Smh, silly writers.
     
    Back on topic, love ME 2 and 3...part one was an awesome start but the following 2 were such a big improvement all around.
  20. Apex Spartan liked a post in a topic by Arreyanne in Andromeda get a fix   
    Thursday April 6th a new patch for the game is suppose to fix a lot of things the community has suggested.
     
    It's all on the BSN forums go take a look
  21. Apex Spartan liked a post in a topic by Arreyanne in Why does the new Mass Effect seem to be getting so much flak?   
    I;m a little late to this party but 67 hours into the game I can now honestly give a fair review.
     
    1) It starts very slow; it reminds me of the first 7 levels in FFXIV, 10 hour to get to lvl 7 anyone, but thats a different game
    If you're going for 100% complete it's going to take 2-3 hours before you get off, The main space station.After the gameplay increases exponentially.
    2) The default female's are some of the weirdest looking character in Gaming period. The default female Quanari in Dragon Age Inquisition look better
    3) The UI there are a lot of menus to go through to find what your looking for
    4) Leaving the space station the game picks up the pace and becomes much like ME2 in advancement.
    5) Female Ryder has a ton of one-liners if you select the right response, nowhere near as serious as FemShep
    6) Yes sometimes the facial animations leave you saying WTF And all the PC's and NPC's have what I consider dead eyes
    7) I miss the mass Relays but can live with the travel scenes they gave us in MEA
    8) Still not a fan of the Mako (Not what they call it this time) but it's easier to drive. A nice shuttle to hop around the planet like ME2 gave us launched from orbit would have suited me just fine
    9)The skill system is improved I believe as you can become all or one of the classes in the Trilogy
    10) the romance options are ok but like previous game if you are doing side quest on a planet and not advancing the story arc the romance doesn't progress. In short the Flirt options go away until you advance either you compaion loyalty mission or advance the story, pfft
    11) Combat is pretty much as good as ME3 and ME2, cept you don't have elevated enemies a Vanguard cant get to like ME2
     
    OH left my biggest gripe out.
    THERES NO QUICK SAVE
     
    I give it a 8.5 out of ten. Disagree or agree thats my story and I'm sticking to it.

  24. Platina32 liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in Why does the new Mass Effect seem to be getting so much flak?   
    I'm pretty skeptical about this game too, but I'm going to be honest and say: fuck the media!
     
    Since the first trailer with bad animations, EVERYBODY just jumped on the hate wagon and saying the game is utter trash because the facials are trash. Then some idiot plays the game and he is lucky enough to find a walking bug and then he puts it on his shitty site and says the game is bugged and this bug is terrible. Witcher 3 had a shiton of fucking bugs and it got GOTY and shit ton of rewards and I fucking loved that game.
     
    But Roach is the buggiest horse ever, sometimes Geralt's face would get stuck mid-air and my face would disappear and so on. And I'm a fan of the game, but man, was it bugged. But nobody shit on it for it. 
    I think people just expected too much from ME:A and are now disappointed, by what they saw on the surface. And why did I say fuck the media? Because many of them were crucifying the game and now when they played it, 50% of them are like "Oh if you can get past the facials, it's actually a fun game."
    "Oh if you can get past first 10h, the game really opens up."
     
    PC GAMER spent last week shitting on the game and making fun of it and now they gave it a 8/10, saying it's a good game if you can get past some annoyances. Nobody reviewed the story in detail: everyone just focused on the most basic shit: the animations.
     
    Fuck the media. You don't know who is paid to shittalk the game and who is paid to talk good about it. One week they write this and next this. I will wait till the game is out, watch more reviews and specifically focus on feedback from comments and normal reviews rather than big reviews and then I will decide.
     
    TBH I believe this game isn't good with story as previous ME and characters too, but the gameplay and exploration could be worth it.
  25. Crazycrab liked a post in a topic by Apex Spartan in Mass Effect Andromeda,Worth pre-order/getting it at Launch?   
    IMO I think ME3 was great from beginning, to middle and to the end. The end wasn't as good, until the update where they fixed it and explained the whole ending properly, which would be the perfect ending originally.
     
    Anyway, moving that away, if you aren't sure about the game and specially if you didn't like the previous: then don't preorder!
     
    I'm always against preordering unless for some reason you are 100% sure you going to like it and I always support it if you preorder physicial copies because they contain some physical goodies. However when it comes to preordering in general, I see no point, specially digital copies. All you are doing is giving up money up front for a product you don't really know what it's gonna be like besides promotional material (which btw always looks good hence why its promo material) and you are giving up money up front for a product that might fail. We've all learned from these mistakes and got burned by bad preorders. I personally don't because I only preordered 2 games in my life and I was lucky they weren't shit at launch. Now however it's more common that games are broken at launch and need 1 day massive GB patches and what not. 
     
    I'm not a hater of EA, but this is EA we are talking about. They aren't really the best company to support like this atm. 
     
    TLDR: Unless you want some special goodies that come with preorders, specially physical ones, then go for it. It's your money. But if you didn't like the previous game and you aren't sure about this then the answer is obvious: wait for reviews!
