    To the guy that was cheated on. Please read your message back to yourself as if it was written by a friend of yours. This lady cheated on you, she pinned the blame on the other man being 'toxic', and had you help her through the break up of her other relationship that she started while with you? She's manipulated and made a fool of you and I have to believe that you're better than this. Pull the rug out from under her and go on dates. Ghost her. Above all else, start living for yourself. It sounds like you've taken on quite strong codependent tendencies.

    Blood is right, if you take out the VR and controls of VR games, it’s a completely different game. You basically have to make 2 versions of the game, with game development where it is already, that’s just not feasible. Sorry Damiani just don’t agree. You don’t need to play every game and that’s alright. Now I can get behind button mapping that’s a different argument. But imagine playing Wii sports on a regular controller, what’s the point? And you are creating a brand new game basically.

    Regarding eurovision: disclaimer it is to silly for me to watch it by myself, but if my wife wants to watch it I don't mind it. There is usually alcohol and snacks involved in the watching 😊 It's not star search. It's not about becoming famous. Some artists become famous from it. Others do it as a comeback. Others are super famous. The main thing is that people think it is fun to watch. The artists think it is fun to be part of it. It is more of a fun event rather than a competition.

    On the "don't bite the hand that feeds" question, your answer is what annoys me about EZA. You want to be friendly/good vibes/positive, but often that means your views on a game feel compromised. The role of a marketer is to only say the positive stuff and hide the negative. I think your role as critics is to highlight to good AND the bad. If really digging into the negatives makes you uncomfortable, then I don't feel like I can trust you. I don't want pointless rage rants, but I want people who explain what's bad about a game, because then I trust them when they say something is good. You review scores aren't inflated, but the scripts and your podcast chats often just don't go into detail on the negatives.

      ​@Easy Allies Wasn't trying to be condescending, guess I misunderstood what you said. It seemed like Ian/Huber/Ben were leaning towards "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all" and my view of a good critic is opposite. EZA does criticize games obv, but then allies say how much they prefer being positive vs negative. To me, critics shouldn't feel bad about saying negative stuff cause it's most of what makes them important. Otherwise they WOULD just be marketers. And I got annoyed with the anti "angry rant" stuff, cause I think those are actually valuable. Not fake gamer rage, but passionate fans pointing out flaws and suggesting changes they would make. I got mad on those people's behalf. Plus I don't need that from EZA, but you guys even do it too sometimes.

      That isn't what anyone said. No one said "we're uncomfortable digging into the negatives". We're saying that we're going to express those negatives in a polite way and not scream about it. Being friendly does not inherently compromise your viewpoint. That statement doesn't add up logically. Reading your other comments, it seems this is an opinion you're already dead set on, since you're repeating the same points. It is also condescending to explain what a marketer and a critic are like we're elementary students. - Ben

    How is Huber still allowed to partake in FriendCode and discuss Nintendo games when he only has 3-4 games on his Switch since 2017. And yes Huber, physical games show up on your Switch when you put the cart in. Feels like the guy has been lying about claiming to try and play everything and anything.

    Frustrating me Damiani downplayed the necessity of VR for HL Alyx. "People don't care"? You downplayed the whole development team effort with that statement. What an insensitive thing to say. It's like go watch a firework with a blindfold and complain that it's just a loud noise. Reloading in VR is not the same as pressing a button on your controller. The game was design with VR first and foremost. Not tacked on like RE7 just to sell PS VR Headset(RE7 is a great game btw but it's not design to function around VR)

      I get where he was coming from, but he really worded his opinion poorly. Like Blood said, it's one thing to remap controls and it's something else to have to adapt an entire game for a different control scheme. I get that from his point of view since he can't play Alyx at all, having it none VR would make him at least experience some of it, but he just can't understand that without VR, the game simply wouldn't work. A lot of elements would fall flat and feel generic. He says people "don't care", but they would definitely bash it on the grounds that it's not that good compared to people who play it on VR.

    I just can’t do mobile gaming. It was a neat novelty back when I had the iPhone 4 and 5 but I’m not in a lot of situations where I need those little distractions. And, for bigger games I’d rather use a dedicated device. Mobile is the big money maker, and perhaps it’s the future, but as a gaming hobbyist I’m not particularly enthusiastic about it.

The songs are amazing, it's fun to rank them, some are wild and daring and some are disgusting saccharine ballads and the ones you hate the most will get the loads of votes, Blood it's NOTHING like American Idol please don't think it's like American Idol!!

      Yeah agree, I get Damiani's perspective but then I think he took it too extreme, the idea that EVERY game MUST have every possible option is a bit silly. Using the VR logic in the reverse what if I want to play every game in a VR mode? Clearly that would be a lot of work for developers to do that wouldn't make sense.
