7:49 PMeathdemonwhat TB does if fair use, what PDP does isnt

7:59 PMeathdemonmostly only walking sims suffer from that

7:59 PMScottyJayManThat did happen with That Dragon, Cancer

8:01 PMeathdemonthat being said, I dont care about walking sims, so I dont care

8:07 PMScottyJayManProbably better to use a real person, like Micheal Vick streaming a Pokémon game

8:11 PMeathdemonsteam doesnt allow you to revew games you dont owm

8:11 PMWarren LewisJack Thompson and Cooper Lawrence were review bombed.

8:12 PMeathdemonalso there are good reassons to revew bomb. for example china famulsy does it if a game is released there without translations

8:13 PMWarren LewisBoth were lying about videogames .

8:13 PMAndrew EisenRight, but unlike Thompson, Lawrence’s book had nothing to do with video games.

8:17 PMeathdemonnah I think not having localization is good reason to revew bomb
