  1. TimeSplitters Rewind: The game has been in development for years now (since 2013), unfortunately the small group of developers over the years have struggled to keep the team together with the constant issues over the years with the game engine changing over and over. The latest update was given by one of the team members 5 months ago (March 2019) showing a very basic version of the beginning level of TimeSplitters 2 (TS2) - Mission 1: Siberia. The developer (Alfred Turner) has explained that he began creating the level since October 2018 mostly by himself (see the video link below). The level itself looks amazing if I do say so myself! The level of detail instantly threw me straight back to playing TS2 as a kid and the nostalgia was running through my veins. If you can't tell already, I'm a huge TimeSplitters fan! (hence my user name) Equally I am a big fan of Angry Joe and have been for years, all the way back to his FarCry 2 and Fallout 3 videos which feel like a lifetime ago now. One thing I did see all those years back was that Joe actually made a video with Gavin Stone and Tons of Fun Chris about Timesplitters (see the video link below) and how the series needed a new game to really mix up the First Person Shooter franchise (dominated by Halo at the time). I'm hoping to somehow push the information onto Joe in regards to helping spread the word about the game or even encourage people with the necessary skills to apply to join the TSR team. I think for all the years where the rights of the series have been thrown around from developers to developers, I've lost hope in seeing the game be published by a company willing to take on the challenge. Therefore, TSR for me right now seems like my only hope of getting my favourite game series brought back to life. If you're willing to join the cause in trying to get Joe to maybe make a quick video to spread the word or just want to jump on this thread as a way to reflect on the good memories you may have had of the past 3 games then feel free. I believe that if we all put our heads together we could support the guys putting in the hours to make the game. - NeoTokyoGhost - - 05/08/2019 - References: TimeSplitters Rewind Update (March 2019): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkltJm1lWMc&t=50s AngryJoeShow TimeSplitters 4 (February 2009): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pW_e_oNFt4E
  2. Just found this in my feed, and I'm not sure whether it's gonna be bad or good. Does Joe know about this?
  3. This is about a Campaign from Kick-Starter that was created in 2013; which would attempt to invent new ways of playing a well established format that Wizards of the Coast cemented back in the early 1990's with their overwhelmingly popular and immensely successful game "Magic The Gathering". Cory Hudson Jones the current and active President of Cryptozoic, an indie company that had a few years creating physical board games, would spring into action and break the internet with their latest announced project that boldly advertised as; "The Revolutionary Digital Massively Multiplayer Online Trading Card Game" titled - Hex: Shards Of Fate. Allegedly from the get-go to combine World of Warcraft (MMO) mechanics coupled with MTG sequence, play flow (Way to play the game) of using cards you'd collect and build into unique decks, having dungeons you would be able to explore & level up a character you've created whilst be immersed in a fully fleshed out story that would be expanded upon with new dungeons, cards & raids to name just a few. It was quickly unveiled they'll be directly competing against the unstoppable machine Magic the Gathering due to adopting their formula of how the game-play mechanics were contrived and adding slight minor changes on the overall way the game would play out in HEX. Some believed Cory Jones, CEO / President of Cryptozoic & Newly created company that would be driving the ambitious project "Hex Entertainment" was simply paying homage to a game from his early adult hood, although in the lens of other on-lookers they concluded there's too little changes and some connected carbon-copy cards like Murder extracted straight from Wizard's Magic The Gathering pool that would later land them into court, inevitably losing this battle some time later as they decided to settle outside of court with some major differences taking effect on HEX's role immediately there after. Some changes indicated they weren't allowed to set Champion values starting health to 20. They had to remove a literal copy card named Murder and change the name to Kill. Other things weren't really disclosed as it was discussed behind closed doors per-se; but there would be more fundamental changes that happened at a later date. To push the envelope further they sold us the idea (During Campaign) of having special achievements and statistic tracking (Double Back) that would bring real world value to cards with ways of retrieving and storing data like "How many times this specific individual Burn card was used in total." that could then be traded for other desired cards, or auctioned off for real money. Additionally, this feature was especially enticing to spenders such as Whales - 'cause theoretically official HEX Entertainment Tournaments could increase the value of any card that was able to be tracked during any such event making a common card aforementioned explosively more expensive since a winner of that Tournament had the leverage to set it to sell for; say.. 20$ instead of $0.20 cents because of the barely function-able auction house gave users the tool to do so. Spiking cards that normally would only be between $0.01 - $0.06 to a sudden elevated price as the auction house had various issues of people being able to freely manipulate the market with almost no repercussion due to the inability on HEX Entertainment's hand to prevent it. The actual game exited out of Beta January 29th 2016 that eventually landed itself on Steam & PS4 (advertised as free to play on all platforms) is but a pond compared to a river in comparison to the things HEX Entertainment had promised that never made it to light. HEX was plagued with the Free-To-Play label from Day One when realistically everybody knew it would take a miracle or a life time to actually fully sit on a sizeable collection that could tackle many of the features like Tournaments, the small slice of PVE content. This was because of the premise Cory Jones had set from day one, in the interviews, the news letters and post that, "you could earn money here, not having to spend it in order to grow a collection." despite this was FAR from factual, as it would heavily rely on cards that were at a higher power level then most others, resulting in them costing money and not in-game currency to purchase, effectively making playing the game free statement redundant. You could install the game for free, create an account for free, but to have the audacity to say you could participate in tournaments, drafts, even the play-able PVE content (Which is basically only Frost Arena) without deploring hundreds of man hours to collect enough in-game currency to participate ONCE let alone successfully is about as truthful as the company holds to listening to their community when they voiced their concerns on the many bad decisions Cory Jones would make. (Sarcasm) 'cause they never listened. They had their ups and downs.. but further into the conversation, you begin to wonder.. what really was their true agenda after the lawsuit? Why did they suddenly change from being open minded with sticking to their promises to which $2,270,000 dollars was contributed towards from over 17,765 backers (myself included as one) and decided "we need to make as much money as we can, so let's churn out PVP sets, neglecting what little dignity we had from separating us from a straight magic clone." I would've loved to had been in that conference room when this was finalised.. because it was self-destructive, which is why this post exists today. Some time in 2014, HEX's team had to make an unusual announcement after their conclusion of the successful kick-starter. They apologised for not being able to speak on the matter sooner- and that they had to air our something crucial that could finish their dream game. Eventually CEO / President of HEX Entertainment came out and had said they were going to be set back on delivering the game in 2015, Due to issues with the developers designing and coding the digital product we were being sold on departed from the project and that we would only be left with his side of the story. Although this was potential grave news, the community (myself included; rallied to support them.) The story goes: they blamed the company originally hired making the software part of HEX that all of the progress they had said would be completed 1 year after the campaign.. had to be demolished and completely re-built from the ground up due to issues of deceiving about the development progress. CEO / President of HEX Entertainment Cory Jones before the first Alpha Stage was commenced had stated shortly there-after, the company had decided to part ways from the project; leaving the board game designers having to salvage the code and do it blindly. Now, this wouldn't be so bad.. if they were Developer Savvy, however.. they weren't. This project was now left to the demise of physical board gamer creators to create a digital product of which none knew besides one that would now struggle to begin on such an arduous task. They were now having to be self taught, which lead to heavy delays and shifted a lot of expectations to a gray area of uncertainty with many people. Thus, resulting in many missed deadlines, many fans leaving with distraught emotions about the fate of HEX in the market with with recent light of Hearthstone, and other competition arising to fame in the year of 2014 onward. This resulted in many backers leaving due to the heavy delays, things being gutted out from promised land Kick-Starter and other numerous reasons for many faulty and fatal critical errors on the team's part. They barely made any feature they implemented function-able, such as aforementioned auction house, the AI in general but especially in frost ring arena, the singe-player Adventure Zone 1 & 2. So much is still missing, even to this exact hour.. 4.5 years AFTER the campaign concluded. Where did all this money go? But for me they crossed the line when they did something extremely reckless and immoral, not because of missed deadlines, or many features not being in the game such as 2v2, Co-Op, Staple PVE Content like Raids but because of this.. Artist-Gate. Yes, they didn't pay the artist in a very long time for long intervals at a time. In early 2018, dozens of artist were left unpaid for several months, whilst their work that made for sets were already in rotation and able to buy off the clients in hex. There was an article on reddit/hextcg about it. Here's the direct link to the person who made it public. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1955567314516028&set=a.152845698121541&type=3&theater Not only that but back in 2017, they had the gall to reach out to consumers; the last line of defence; the narrowly remaining hopeful community of HEX that had already lost so much hope in their ability as a team to deliver on the game they so desperately wanted to work whom spilled countless hours of creating content on YouTube, Live-streaming, even doing free-moderation on the game's chat section and what's HEX's way of thanking them? By advertising a new unrelated Kick-Starter called "QST - THE TABLETOP GAME SUBSCRIPTION BOX!" on the forums of HEX: Shards of Fate general discussion right here. Those that already probably pulled half of their life savings, credit cards placed in deeper debt, and anything in-between to come and now fork out even more money for this shill of a subscription model hot-garbage idea that only one maniacal money driven bastard could even conjure and have the audacity to ask money from PREVIOUS consumers who pledged in a non-completed game of said pledge! ...By god he will not stop In the end what does CEO / President of Cryptozoic / HEX Entertainment / Newly created QST company decide to do? Oh.. he decides that he wants another successful campaign, so he champions onward to the battle-field and ushers everybody to come and pledge more of their life savings, put themselves in more debts to bring a new lucrative "collectable board game service that EVERYBODY WANTS!" into fruition. But here's the kicker, you're paying hundreds of dollars in EU / USD to get very small developed games that not only were expensive to other "safer, cheap alternatives", but would be completely designed and pushed out annually for a subscription based model that promised 13 games per year by some famous artists, concepts & developers that in no way shape or form would even touch this campaign with a pole and from my acknowledgement none of the 20 or so people that seemed to be more pulled out of a hat roulette then actually be on the campaign said they were involved. What was so shady about this practice in the first place was the fact, the remaining members of HEX's team up at this point 1.5 years ago which consisted of about 6 people, 2-3 decided to invest whatever money they garnered and create companies and branch out away from Cryptozoic/HEX Entertainment (to avoid it landing in any type of legal case if these experiments would fall flat, that way nothing leads back to their main channel) and try new things. However, some people from QST's backer-comment section have connected those dots quite early on and immediately flagged them down for it. Becoming cautious, and suspicious of the "value" they so persistently said you'd get with these board games, just like they did with HEX's Kick-Starter tiers pegging it to a niche crowd, and so too did they market this to a niche crowd as well. Just read the comment section, don't forget to grab your popcorn! So the next chapter of shade is when you start to think about how many kick-starters, new campaigns these guys have gotten involved into or made in the span of just a few years, each with their own set of communities and promises to be delivered. The new companies created in 2017 once HEX: Shards of Fate was abandoned by the exact people that made these companies: Little Orbit by Matthew Scott who still shares a stake and ties with HEX whilst trying to redeem himself to finish Unsung Story from Playtek which is absolutely ironic given he abandoned his own baby project HEX along with Cory Jones. There's effectively nobody working on HEX. It's actually factual, you can google this information, check the forums.. etc. 1/6th of delivered promises. The community manager temporarily at the time was LixilKae in 2017 however she was "moved" to manage APB Reloaded a game Little Orbit is in association with though we (the community of HEX) were informed she moved to manage the new-new-newer company that would announce its plans to create a mobile version of HEX: Shards of Fate by 80Arcade company and work there. This however wasn't the case, and afterwards, Dinotropia, or infamously dubbed "Dinobot" 'cause of the sheer amount of copy pastes for "official articles in a span of 8 months and on going" became the latest community manager up to this point. These guys are abusing the ability to get funded, create, abandon, repeat simply due to the fact Kick-Starter exists. Is there ever a stop to these guys? Is there any legal action that could be taken in order to shut down this behavior? They're in more Kick-Starter campaigns, and have started more than there is of DBZ episodes. Absurd, and it's sickening to know people are letting them get away with it. I found out about their campaign back in 2013 because of Joe Vargas, or AngryJoeShow from Youtube. I'm just one person that's decided to do something, but if we can convince AngryJoe who also pledged and asked his audience to pledge to which MANY of us did at that time or somebody with similar broadcasting capabilities to get in on the controversy that's happening here, maybe we can get more light shed on the issue at hand here, and halt them in their tracks before they keep expanding, exploiting this system! This was a long time coming, share and spread this message. Don't let these con-artist get away with this anymore, and send a message to new potential challengers that thought this was okay to scam millions out from their consumers money and hide behind the current KS policy that this will not go forward in 2019.
  4. I dunno, maybe it's because I'm just not a fan of Sports but the new format with AJ and friends just sitting around a table while they just talk about a videogame and call it a Review kind of bugs me because in a way it really isn't a review but a discussion, which I'm not saying he shouldn't have because it's his channel and he can do what he wants with it, I just wish he'd stop referring to them as Reviews because let's face it... they're not. A review has a specific structure to follow either in written or in this case video format where you cover several key bullet points, such as graphics, music, etc. in a relatively short amount of time before assigning a final rating based on those points and in AJ's case, mix in skits and jokes to keep the watcher entertained as the Review progresses. Discussions on the other hand can go on for hours and can end with the watcher more confused about the game you're talking about than they were going in; incidentally this is why I love Giant Bomb so much because I'll watch one of their quick looks, then read the review and be like "Huh DMX goomba doesn't make an appearance anywhere in this game..." because obviously there's a difference between the two. Again, not saying they can't be had it's just it feels like a sort of false advertisement in a way because the thumbnail and even the introductory sketches are still there but then it cuts to four dudes sitting around a table and it's like... "Wait, I thought I was going to see the latest angry review?" and of course I keep watching all the same because I need something playing in the background when I'm playing GW2 but still it just feels kind of misleading to the casual watcher who I don't think will stick around for it... and I know I wouldn't if I didn't need some ambience. Since this will probably be an unpopular opinion I'm gonna leave a poll at the top of this page where other... Angry Armiers? Can vote on whether or not they like the new format and if no one votes, well then I can just remain alone with my unpopular opinions thinking the Star Wars prequels were good and that No Man's Sky was a good game.

  6. Hey everyone! I'm very new to this site! I just signed up now. I have been trying to reach Joe Vargas for a while now, via twitter, instagram, and exc. I am in the progress of making a 2D Fighting Game. It's a fan project using FM2nd. The idea of the game is to feature several YouTubers duking it out in a fun, fast paced, style. I've been working on it for the latter half of this year, and am slowly progressing. I was hoping to get in contact with the AngryJoeShow to see if I could represent them in the game via a character. The character would be Joe, and have references to different episodes of the show. On twitter I have posted a quick snipit of gameplay, which is still a work in progress. I'm also looking to include the AVGN as well as the Nostalgia Critic. I believe all three of these YouTubers have helped shape the way the platform has grown, and it would be great if I could represent them all in some way. I currently have a few other YouTubers joining the fold as well, that I have already received permission from. If anyone could help send me in his direction, to see if I can get approval, please let me know! Thanks everyone for your time!
  7. So are you alone walking home in the dark? If you are remember........ GOOGLE HAS EYE'S!!!! AJ, OJ and Purruna take on Red Barrels Studios' first person horror sequel to see if it's a true freight night or just an empty stab in the dark. ENJOY!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
  8. So here is Angry Joe's take on the much hyped independent title. Will the wildly ambitious game hit the mark?
  9. Respawn's second installment in it's Titanfall franchise comes packed with a campaign, a revised multiplayer and is even brave enough to release alongside the FPS giants of COD and Battlefield. Will this endeavour prove to be a giant steel stomp on the competition or a foolish Titanfail. Angry Joe..... Stand by for Titanfall.....
  10. Will the latest instalment of the Deus Ex franchise be a diner date with the Terminator or a bit of a block head? Angry Joe shares his thoughts!
  11. Suggested games are the following; Monster hunter 4 ultimate,Civilization revolution,RAGE,Command and conquer red alert 3, Dragon's crown,Project X zone, Fire emblem (The 3DS games), super smash bros for Wii u/3Ds, GTA V, Dishonored. Its okay if Joe doesn't wanna review these, I just wanted to show people some of the games I think are worth a look.
  12. Hey guys, this is my first time on the forum so I'd like to apologise if someone else has already discussed something similar and I've missed it. I've been watching Joe's videos for a while (though not as long as some of the true AJ veterans on here, I'm sure) and recently I've been finding myself yearning for the classic rants, the reviews of terrible games like Ride to Hell Redemption and Mindjack etc. The Destiny review remains to this day my favourite Angry Joe video of all time, it was enjoyable from start to finish. However, initially I couldn't explain why this was. Was it simply a case of nostalgia making those videos far better than they were? After all, when I watched the original Xbox One rant, it was the first Angry Joe rant I'd ever seen and it really stayed with me as an experience, and perhaps that was part of why I enjoyed so many of videos in that period in particular. Or was it that the reviews simply came out very late? At the time when I initially watched the Destiny review, I didn't know the first thing about Bungie, or anything like that - so everything in the video was new for me and made it that much more interesting. When I watched the Red Dead Redemption review, I was at a point where I'd already played the game and loved it, and I can admit that mostly, I just wanted to hear Joe's affirmation. But as time went on I started following gaming news more closely and so when titles like MGSV and Witcher 3 came out I had already decided before release that I wanted them, and that I didn't want to sample any reviews until I had played them. Therefore, the only reviews I was watching were ones that either involved gaming controversy that I was already aware of (and wanted good ol' Angry Joe's reaction on) like Arkham Knight, or bringing attention to games that I'd never heard of before, such as the SUPERHOT video. So with that in mind, there are those two possible explanations for why I was finding myself missing "the old Joe". I recognise the fact that as a content creator he likes to keep things as fresh as possible, and that's his right. But I honestly think there's a third aspect to it as well. For me personally, I've been feeling that over time Joe has become disenchanted with the gaming industry and the gaming community in general. With some of the older videos, you really got a sense that Joe cared deeply about the gaming industry and community, and was passionate about all the games he reviewed - not just the ones he passionately loved but the ones he hated as well. We all know that gaming companies have been engaging in shitty practices, and getting away with it. The gaming community has been vocal enough on social media but putting their money where their mouth is. For example, EA would not have 120 dollar editions of games if they didn't sell, and for watchers of the show it's very easy to say "who the fuck would do that?" but clearly enough people do that it was deemed a worthy investment. Only certain obviously poor business decisions have been punished by consumers, such as Arkham Knight's PC port, or Xbox One's various "features". Even in those instances, companies have been reluctant to act and I feel that in the case of WB in particular, they would not have acted as swiftly as they did were it not for the introduction of the Steam refund system. It also seems like companies are continuously testing the limits of consumer patience by releasing more and more shoddy and unfinished products on release at the same retail price, whilst claiming that it is OK because they will be adding more content in the future. Whether this content is paid or free is mostly unimportant because the bottom line is that people are paying more for less, and they are okay with it. Games with 4 hour stories, or no singleplayer, no splitscreen (looking at you, Halo 5), and other features missing or smacking of laziness are being released and still selling. Eventually, this must feel like a broken record for Joe, especially since him and so many other prominent Youtube gaming experts have not only publicly criticised these practices but also encouraged consumers to be actively wary of Early Access, Kickstarter etc. in a bid to stop people accepting sub-standard products. Still these games are being released and the trend is becoming alarmingly common. Not only that, but some fanboys are staunchly defending every aspect of these games, and attacking anyone who disagrees. I feel like this aspect in particular would be disheartening as the days of single complete products upon release are fading, with more and more companies feeling confident that they can produce less and charge more. This could be down to the vocal portion of the gaming community becoming younger over time - back in the day (early 2000s) I didn't play PC games, and I didn't really have standards for games, I just played what I liked. It was only when I got into PC gaming and looked at forums that I understood a) how not everything in games are intended by the developer and b ) how horrible people online can be when they have the convenience and protection of internet anonymity. More and more kids are finding that they can attack others behind aliases and not suffer consequences. It must be so thrilling to call someone a useless piece of shit that their mom should have swallowed when they're not quite up to your gaming standard, and then put down the controller because you're being called to dinner. From personal experience I find that younger communities can be really, really horrible. Mainly because kids are jerks anyway. I'm losing track of the picture here. My point is, I feel like kids are totally okay with having to pay more for sub standard products because a) they don't have quite the same grasp of the value of money and b ) mom and dad pay for it anyway and c) they won't be considered cool unless they have the ultimate edition and will cry bloody murder until they get it. I get that a lot of this is what is similar to what Joe has said or implied. I think he said at the end of his Halo 5 video something along the lines of "this is what gaming is now". It's really sad that as a critic he feels he has to mention the fact that his review is about the state of the game at release about 20 million times because of rabid fanboys that will viciously attack anything. So yeah, I felt like with his latest review, he seemed almost resigned to it. Not quite the passionate angry Joe that we know, more mellowed out and accepting of the fact that the gaming industry is on a path that it is unlikely to deviate from. I don't blame him. Disclaimer: this is just my opinion and I'm by no means an expert, so please if you disagree feel free to say something.

  14. About Me: I'm a 24 year old college student living in Southwestern Indiana, United States of America. Soon to be getting my Bachelor's in Social Work which I decided to go towards after life events motivated me to turn my life around away from some pretty sketchy bad habits. Born in Western New York, raised in North Carolina and some how ended up attending high school and college in Indiana. Video Game History: I've been playing video games since I can remember (age 7~8), with my teenage years being filled up playing Madden titles, Cruising the World, Mario Kart, 007 GoldenEye, Conker's Bad Fur Day being some of the best I remember. During high school I played World of Warcraft pretty frequently getting to Level 70. Starting college in 2009 I transitioned from console to the PC Master Race and to this day play 90% of my games on PC. Currently my favorite/most played titles are: World of Warships (PC) (want to join Angerbeard in ranked battles), World of Tanks (PC), Star Wars: The Old Republic (PC) and Rocket League (PS4). Reason for joining AJSA/How I found AJSA/AngryJoe/Angerbeard So over the past 2 months I've really gotten into AngryJoeShow's YouTube game review's and live streams. As a proud gamer, I don't know how I went this long without finding these hard-working, gamer oriented, down to earth badass people. Specifically, I've begun to follow Angerbeard heavily because he streams my favorite 2 games World of Warships and Star Wars: The Old Republic. Angerbeard is someone I can relate to because we are similar in age, interests music and games alike, and you can just tell he's a genuine dude which is nice to have these days, especially on the internet. In the future I hope to join Angerbeard in the seas of battle in World of Warships via Clan Wars/Ranked Battles in addition to some potential PVP in SWToR. Hope I didn't bore anyone too much, I know if you're like me you enjoy relating to other gamers especially within the AJSA community. P.S. I love sports as well, mainly baseball (go Yankees!)

Hey Community and Joe, Wanted to start by saying I am a huge fan of the youtube channel and have llstened to as much of your content as possiable even the content that I will more than likely never play or have the time to explore. Though this is my first day as a member I didn't know if there is a thread or section to ask for reviews to be done? If there is, someone point me in the right direction. Wanted to know if anyone wanted certain games covered which I am sure we all do. Joe these dont have to be covered anytime soon but these two games I would love a review on. Would love to spawn general discussion about current games and future game titles. Thanks guys and have a great week PSN:onemanshow1881 > Dragonball Z Xenoverse >Metal Gear Soild 5: Phantom Pain > Batman: Arkham Knight
  16. Good evening, I decided to voice some concerns about the AngryJoeShow. In this rant/op-ed (let's call it what it is) I will be making reference to past events involving the AngryJoeShow and Joe himself. A disclaimer before I continue; this is all based off of my personal observation through videos on Joe's show, Twitch streams, Twitter and other sources and is all my opinion and my opinion only. I make no claim to know Joe or his friends, personal feelings or anything about him and his friends. I could be entirely wrong about anything and every assumption I make in this post regarding Joe. I will not and am not attempting to slander Joe's name or his show and welcome any correction of my observations. This is all my personal opinion and that's all it is, no more or less. That being said this is an opinion piece, and someone's opinion, unless it makes reference to the outcome of an event in an incorrect manner or makes false claims of knowledge (the definition of which can be debated) is not wrong, it is simply different. Let us continue. My concerns over this are not simply "where are the reviews?" (Personally I am willing to wait for reviews; I don't need a review every week.) There is more to it than that though the lack of reviews are involved but in a different matter than what you're most likely expecting. I am concerned about Joe's cost of living vs. income (I make no assumption as to either nor intend to, I am dealing with this as an abstract concept) and his relationship with his fan-base. There might be some people who despite all possible exposure in this community, don't know why there is an apparent drop in reviews. I will attempt to explain this as informative and short as possible: During the month of December, Joe's channel and many others received copyright strikes on many of there videos. Joe's in particular had about 63. These claims on Joe's videos denied him monetization of all of his videos hit with this claim. This had a massive and frankly worrying impact on Joe and his show. Because this is his full time job if he can't make money off of his videos...he's broke. Over time Joe had most if not all of his videos released of said claims. But to me this had a lasting impact on Joe. I believe he was shooken up by this attack on his livelihood. If things went poorly for him (and they could have) he would be in big trouble and I think that the possibility of that had a negative impact on his psych. It's hard for anyone to be motivated after a stressful event, Joe might have been mentally exhausted. This is one of the things that I believe lead to his lack of reviews. But here's the point I'm trying to get at. His lack of reviews isn't a concern for me: it's free entertainment with information about a game from a man I trust. I'm not timing him. But it is a concern for him. (IMO) Reviews are Joe's most watched videos from an individual standpoint. And the way YouTube works is for every 1,000 views you get money. Joe's reviews have evolved in two ways since what I consider his golden age, 2012. They've gotten longer maybe even doubling in length and they appear less often. The problem is that while a longer video to my knowledge doesn't result in more money, less videos do. And whatever means Joe was comfortable living with in 2012 might struggle to stay sustainable later if he's making less money. Sure you could argue that despite less reviews since then gameplay videos are numerous enough on Joe's channel that they sustain his income. To which I bring up my second point, his fanbase. Joe has a large and relatively loyal fanbase (ignore the trolls). I think it's safe to say that his fanbase mostly watch his reviews. That is what they come in great number to his channel for. And like I've said, I'll watch just about everything on his show, but that doesn't matter because that's not what most of his viewers are there for. I think that all entertainers must walk a line: doing what you're passionate about vs. doing enough to make a living. One makes a living in entertainment by doing something others enjoy and most of Joe's fans enjoy his reviews far more than his gameplay videos. So when Joe puts up gameplay videos or streams on Twitch, no matter how much fun he's having or passionate he is if he isn't getting the views he needs, because most of his fans watch reviews, he's not making as much money as he could. And that's my ultimate concern. Joe seems to be a great guy and I want to see him succeed. To do that he needs money and his fans need to get want they want often enough for them to stay invested. Reviews solve both of those problems. I know Joe has recently release a video regarding a renewed effort to produce reviews with the help of his friends. I look forward to them whenever they're released and will continue to support Joe in his endeavors.
  17. Good Evening Angry Army! I've been watching Joe's Angry reviews for several years now, and he is one of my favorite reviewers on the net. Two of his reviews that struck close to home for me were Mass Effect 3 (Not to mention the numerous subsequent follow up videos...) and Aliens: Colonial Marines. The Mass Effect series was one of my favorites in the past few years, and the Aliens franchise, especially Aliens has been very dear to me for a long time… so When I saw Joe’s reviews on those games, and his reactions… I was like “That was me!” Joe, I love your reviews, and your passion for gaming, and I am proud to be a member of the AngryArmy!
  18. Just FYI and hoping the issue can be resolved quickly: Joe's latest video, "The Top 10 Gaming Controversies of 2014" has been removed from YouTube because of a copyright claim by BroTeamPill.
  19. Hi how ya goin? So who the hell are you? Ok where to begin, perhaps a proper introduction. So people like to call me Capsaicin. I live in California but was in Australia for a bit of some time. I'm a crazy bastard who somehow eats hot peppers (yeah I'm talking habaneros on an average day) while playing games at the same time and perform considerably well. I've been watching AJS for longer than I can remember but somehow never knew about this website because I had a lot of other crap goin on everywhere. I love to act, and have been in commercials, but then again, this is an introduction, not a job interview. Why do you call yourself Capsaicin? Well considering the fact that I love hot foods and have gone as far as drinking a dropper of pure capsaicin (16,000,000 Scoville Heat Units, the Ghost Pepper is 1,000,000) and btw I'm not the only one who calls myself Capsaicin either. What games do you play? My favorite game so far has been Team Fortress 2 and I've been playing that since my first steam account (which was made in 2007 until it got hacked) and my second one (created in 2009 and got hacked as well, don't ask) up until now. Although I do love to play a variety of games like Unturned, Garry's Mod, Killing Floor (for when I have a bit of a rage), and many others but my favorite genre of games are most likely FRS/RTS really any game with heavy teamwork will do! When do you play? Hell I love to play everyday and I'm always on after school's out. But when it's summer time it's 24/7 all day everyday! Have you been with other clans? I've been involved with TOO many other clans that were relatively small but ended up breaking down because of a massive fall in money (which I can't blame them for), or because they let in too many kids (really?!), or because he clan just wore out (meh, it happens), or because of a corrupt "government" that just lost it (again, really?!). In almost all of the clans I've been in, I've ended up working my way up to the top to admin or main admin or whatever you want to call it, which is really sad when you witness the group slowly degrading. I've always been that guy who doesn't like to be involved in big clans that thousands of people are in because you don't get known very much until you do something like win a championship of a game or some shit I don't know! But when I was exploring a bit through the youtube channel and actually looked in the descriptions (yeah I'm that guy who never reads the description) I found out about this and decided to give this one a shot. What are your expectations of being in this clan/group? Well like I said I'm just expecting to not really get known here and maybe get to know a couple of people. BUT, like many games have shown, there's always that possibility that expectations can be in vain... Favorite Movie? Forest Gump cause Tom Hanks is my favorite actor and it has some awesome messages to it. Favorite Youtuber? Now everyone would most likely say here AJ, but in my honesty, I am a BIG fan of AJ and I've watched most if not all of his vids, so yeah I would say AJ is my favorite youtuber. Would you like to meet Angry Joe? Who wouldn't? If AJ joined you in a TS3 channel, what would you do? If I didn't know it was going to happen, I would shit my pants. If I was knew it was going to happen, I would shit my pants beforehand and put 2 boxers on to prepare XD. JK, but in reality I would most likely be that fanboy wanting to play a game or two with him. Well it looks like I've made this post too long so I'll stop it here, but if you guys got any questions (not that you would have any for a recruit but IF you do) post it up in the comments and I'll answer them very shortly! Other than that, see you in the heat mate! -Capsaicin
  20. So I just watched Joes Kill Hitler video. Like many other Im sure have. And then I went down to the comment section. And I saw something that Ive seen a few times in previous videos aswell. Here is an example for the Kill Hitler video The issue with this is that it is all false. What this person clearly doesnt understand is that its more work for Joe. Joe isnt gonna stop making reviews, but they take time. Joe have to play the game several times or different difficulty levels, to find different ways to play the game and so on and so on. After that he has to write the review, he have to make the review. It takes a lot of time. The editing takes a lot of time with all the special effects. But since Joe already have to play these games, why not make videos aswell. He doesnt take more time becuase he have to play the game already. Sure he may use more time becuase he have to edit these video, but that editing is far from hard as it is in his reviews. Im sure that its no problem for him to edit theses video. I dont mind seeing these video while waiting for his next review, it serves as a filler while Im waiting. And Im glad that he can make some extra video and earn some more money. I think he deserve it. Not to mention that the money he earn, some but not all, goes to making the review better with props and other stuff. Ps. I know this is the best written post, Im not particular good at making articles and expressing things, but I felt like it had to be addressed. Feel free to try and elaborate on what Im trying to say if you can. Pps. People like him is the reason why I dont enjoy going to the comment section.
  21. Angry Joe + Mass Effect = Yes.

  22. Hello Joe and hello to everyone else. I just thought I'd join up and say that I really enjoyed watching the AJS youtube channel. Yes I realize times are hard for everyone who loves doing such kind of work and I do hope the situation improves. There's really not much I could say about myself that would be interesting. I'm just a student from Poland. I love good RPG's, I have a bachelor's degree in politics with a specialty in demographics, but since I couldn't get a job for about a year I've decided to continue my education and just go further with it. Currently I'm working and continuing to study Political Science, but this time with a specialty in "American studies and Mass Media". If I'm correct - having a specialty in Poland is the same as having an Academic Major in the U.S. Anyway I started watching the Angry Joe Show ever since I've seen the episode about Fallout 3. It was a kind of love and hate thing. I loved the humor, hated the game itself. It was one of those games that "almost" slaughtered the franchise for me. I don't even see how anyone could give it a 6/10 or an 8.5/10 (personally it's 3/10 in my book). Fallout 3 almost killed my first and second "deep game - RPG" experience. When I got my Hands on the original Fallout games I was literally pulled in to this world. The deep story, incredible lore, weapons, a sense of purpose and freedom. Even the combat was fun. Especially when you'd shoot a guy in the eyes and then had this fun description of what happened to him. Fallout 3 simply took all of that and flushed it down in to the toilet. Playing this kid with daddy issues felt all wrong... just like most of the situations. Like when dear old dad knew about me blowing up Megaton, as well as that guy on the radio. It felt weird and out of place. Not to mention that all the weapons looked like some kind of hand held vacuum cleaners and toys. Even the NPC's where annoying. Yet perhaps the worst thing was what happened to poor Harold. I remembered his story. That voice and how he'd talk. Such sadness and all those emotions. As if you where there, right in front of him. Shedding a tear while listening to everything he said about the war. That was unforgettable as well as meeting Tony Jay's character. Those original Fallout games forged some of my best gaming memories. Anyway even though I didn't always share Joe's point of view - I really enjoyed the humor and he does seem like a nice guy. Since that time I started watching AJS much more often. It is truly enjoyable. You know I wanted to do this much sooner, but hell... life was never kind to me. I don't have any consoles. Those are too expensive for a poor student. I don't even have a good PC, so I manly stick to older games. I wanted to register last year, but I was in a hospital due to a severe internal bleeding. Some time after I came back my family got worried about their health and so they they all went to see a few doctors and it turns out my mother has lung cancer. They are giving her about 1-6 months to live and she is kinda giving up. Since my family has a large debt which we need to repay and my mother can't work now, the bank is gonna take everything. Without any means to live I won't be around much. That's why I have to apologize in advance for any future inactivity. I want to thank Joe for all the game and movie reviews and just enjoy the time I have left.
  23. Okay so I've been trudging up this river all night long. After I saw Joe's first tweet about what YouTube has done and is still doing to his channel and many, many others. I'm sick right now over all this bullshit. What is being done to Joe can destroy his livelihood and severely cripple the type of content we viewers seek out. The fair and honest critiques and often hilarious dialog we enjoy daily could very well vanish because of incredibly unfair regulations. As he said in his rant, He is not stealing or distributing illegal content. He is offering a service that is absolutely needed in the gaming industry. It aids to keep things honest and helps to promote some of the little guys that would otherwise see non such exposure. Look at his video for The Mandate for christs sake. I never would have heard of that kickstarter if it weren't for Joe. Content creators like Joe need our support and though I have no clue where to start the entire lot of us need to be aware. Best case scenario, Google realizes what has happened here and makes it right without further issue. Worst case we need to start gearing up for war! All jokes aside we are the Angry Army after all.
  24. Hi as a member from Europe (more specifically the UK) is there anything happening for us over the pond? All of the events and server listed seem to be based in north america, and that's fine considering the leader, the council and a vast majority of the members of the Angry Army are from the USA. But is their anyway for us Europeans to get involved? Thanks again
