@SabotageTheTruth Awesome and thank you for the response.
I particularly enjoyed the first paragraph. I brought up a point and you had a counter point. That's sufficient.
I was not suggesting anything needs to change or needs to be defended, or registering a complaint. I agree that disclaimers on statements of opinion are a symptom of some awful new social rules, yet somehow similar disclaimers I included in the original comment seem to be overlooked.
I like the coverage from EA, E32016 was great. I still remember how Ian and Huber suggested that Play Anywhere made owning an Xbox irrelevant. I think the general attitudes of the Allies are indicative of the larger market overall in regards to the competition between Sony and Microsoft. And that view is biased.
Again bias isn't a problem. Sony has earned it.
Just a side note to the Gears 4 review, Brandon's review is in the bottom 10% of the almost 97 reviews on Opencritic. I'm not saying he is right or wrong, it's a review, but from a sheer statistical standpoint based on that criteria it's in the minority. One of the critiques about the ending also seemed to demonstrate a lack of knowledge on what the ending meant in the Gears franchise. That might be a fair criticism on the Coalition being a little too subtle with the implications. Still I didn't bring it up mainly because Bloodworth already addressed it and in a much more convincing way might I add.
Sometimes I wonder why I post comments on the internet at all. Misguided, entitled, I'm neither of those things nor have they been demonstrated. Why do we only have to discuss issues? Can't we also discuss things we like? Can't we discuss things we notice and feel? And maybe I am wrong, can't we discuss that too?
All the best
