They could – every once in a while – do what Dan Harmon does in Harmon Quest. In that show he has a new guest every episode, which I wouldn't like as much; but it might be cool to just have a guest person come in and be – as OP stated – a hard boss or something. Ben could give a few pointers as to the character's motivations, and they could then take it from there.
@ib0show said in I think we need a new UI for the forums:
@ericgg Go to your user settings and check pagination
Yeah, I found it yesterday. Helped a loooot.
(Still think its weird that user avatars show up on the left of each thread, but its alright)
I would like to add something to this. This is not really regarding the topic of PBS or what ever is going on there because I do not follow NeoGAF and really don't care but I am a part of the discord EZA.
Yesterday a person was kind enought to post in discord general that the SNES mini was in stock on gamestop and use the feature @everyone which gives everyone that is a part the server a notification.
I am shocked to say that outcry of complaints about a gesture that is ment to inform people out of pure kindness was received by many people with rude comments and other things. making the person say he would not do it again.
This is actually how the community is and I have seen it more times. When light are turned on everyone is saying L&R but a lot are not doing L&R. This is one of the reason why I limit myself to post every little and keep to myself. It is sad to say that with all the talk that so few walk the talk :(
I'm gonna say it's probably patreon that ate it, any time I make a long post or edit it more than once it'll vanish from patreon. And even if I copy the post before that happens and try to repost it the site still won't post it.
It's basically why I rarely submit anything for L&R, patreon needs to fix quite a few things.
I doubt they would ever outright delete a post unless there was a good reason, but I doubt they would otherwise discuss their former employers for obvious reasons. It was probably going to be ignored, unless they felt it a big enough issue to discuss but since it involves a previous place of employment it looks bad on them in the business world.
In the off chance EZA is no longer a thing they probably shouldn't have any burnt bridges out there, that's why you never bad mouth a previous boss on social media.
Unless it happened at GT they don't have much to say about it, and if it DID then it becomes a legal issue. So either way...
Im a little late to this thread. I think its a great idea. I myself had issues with the content snd expressed it in these forums too. However, after scimming the thread, i wanted to add my own thoughts on a topic.
This ironically is something I never thought about when watching EZA. For myself without going into great detail, I'm not religious or atheist. Yet, I try to be mindful of the words I use. Its very hard. Instead of devaluing what was said by using context as an argument, I believe the person should mean what they say and say what they mean. We use a lot of empty words and phrases. In practice if we truly spoke with purpose, we would offend each other a lot less. Why use words when they literally have no meaning to you and yet could have all the meaning in the world to others. Anyways that's my 2 cents.
I like both, as was mentioned earlier about how Don't Skip also covers past games (Or will eventually) it means that the other niche things people typically bug the allies for (like ben with many JRPGs) could get some coverage. Helps fill in the things that fall through the cracks.
And since they aren't scheduled it can easily ramp up production or slow it down when the need arises, and make for some tasty surprises here and there.
Most of the time reviews are put up long after I've played through and beaten the game, whether it's an EZA review or someone else's since I'll have the time to explore multiplayer in specific games I'll have the breadth of insight that review sites typically spend weeks/months covering before reaching a final verdict.
Which leaves reviews in a weird place for me, on one hand I like knowing if the ally reviewing a game shares my opinion, but I've also digested the game already so there's very few times where something is covered that I didn't already know about, whereas Don't Skip could potentially bring in an indie title I've only heard of once or twice (assuming it hasn't hit twitch overplayed hype status by then) or just an older game I never pulled the trigger on and it kinda got tossed aside by games media.
So I find value in both. Also yeah....Jones is "The voice" I used to go on GT just to hear him on reviews before I ever put names to faces on any of the other staff members on GT Time, final bosman, etc. So changing him...would probably ADD work instead of alleviate it due to needing to train the other allies to be comfortable with narration (And as I recall it's not a job any of them seem to want anyway), and as Blood said it's actually valuable to continue having his voice associated with their content for anyone who was like me and would've originally only recognized GT from him speaking.
@Sentinel-Beach I usually have the main stream up and the allies stream as well, switching between them depending if I"m interested more in the Allies thoughts or the game itself. I'll usually mute them whenever they talk over someone. I rewatch the allies stream when I go through e3 withdrawals in the next months...
Also, whenever chat is readable it's usually pretty negative during e3. I turned it off during everything for the most part. It also goes so fast that it seemed to be lagging the stream itself.
I was looking into it earlier this year and decided it wasn't really worth the trouble. If anyone else wants to do it, that's cool, but I really didn't need another task to add to my checklist every time a review goes live.
