7:38 PMjack cayman​Andrew are you gonna talk about how one reviewer got blacklisted by EA for giving Am Then a bad review
7:38 PMjack cayman​anthem*
7:40 PMaddictedtochaos​Not his game. It’s BioWare and EA. He is Microsoft. Your point is still valid though.
7:40 PME. Zachary Knight​Jack, you talking about this?…
7:42 PMaddictedtochaos​To be fair, seems like every 2 bit whack-a-doodle wants to be a game reviewer, but only about maybe 5% of them are actually qualified to do so.
7:43 PMjack cayman​@Zachary, the story i read about was an actual reviewer
7:46 PMjack cayman​the cuphead review will forever be the most infamous one
7:48 PMjack cayman​I really wish they added more melee weapons for zombiu
7:51 PMScottyJayMan​Are we just now describing Andrew with Tetris 99?
7:59 PMjack cayman​you know I wish modding stalker was a little bit easier, it requires a stupid amount of work to install
8:06 PMjack cayman​wasn’t there a kid who wanted to sue because of the floss dance
8:06 PMjack cayman​then it was learned that he never actually made it
8:08 PMjack cayman​fallout 76 is a gift that just keeps on giving
8:08 PMjack cayman​oh they banned the guy for duping ammo
8:09 PMaddictedtochaos​Can’t stand Jim Sterling
8:09 PMjack cayman​fallout 76 is just a never ending dumpster fire isn’t it?
8:10 PMjack cayman​fallout 76 is just one big video game social experiment
8:11 PMjack cayman​”lets fuck this up now and see how they react”
8:11 PMaddictedtochaos​So they banned the one person who enjoys it.
8:12 PMjack cayman​if they were gonna make 76 that open, why limit the players? make it total anarchy, let the players do what they want.
8:12 PMjack cayman​buildings get destroyed when you log out, no modding, PvP is trash
8:13 PMjack cayman​me and my brother are die hard fallout fans, we ALWAYS wanted a fallout mmo
8:13 PMjack cayman​instead we get this pile o shit

8:15 PMaddictedtochaos​I have more fun reading about Fallout’s problems than I would have had playing it.
