Linkara seems to have moved pretty far to the left from his earlier politics.

That's actually really good to hear, because that was my main beef with him back when I watched Channel Awesome stuff was his politics (and over-reliance on stupid plotlines in his reviews).

How's he doing after CA imploded?

He once did a 20 minute unboxing video on the collectors edition of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII... and never opened the box. If he's not some kind of hypermoron then he is the Andy Kaufman of the Internet Era and the joke is flying so far over all our heads it's in orbit around Jupiter now.

Initially I thought DSP was the latter, but you don't do things like leasing out a new BMW with some useless extended warranty and then never change the oil as a joke.

i'm surprised people are surprised anthem was bad. way back when it was announced it looked like generic dogshit. them completely botching simple things like how strong weapons should be is just icing on the cake.

People absolutely expected it to be bad, but they really hoped it wasn't anyway because Anthem failing means a deaths sentence for BioWare.

Honestly I think it's more likely that there are a lot of people whose standards aren't as high as the posters' here, and who either don't know about Change the Channel or just don't care because they want to keep watching the funny screamy guy make movie jokes.

Like, most people aren't super into media criticism, they just want to unwind and watch something funny for a while, and their tastes aren't all that refined. Nothing especially wrong with that, much as I wish they'd go for someone a bit less enabling of terrible people.

Also recall that a lot of youtube users are kids. Not terribly discriminating, not super up on ethics, and possessing a massive amount of free time to watch an old nerd shriek and pretend to shoot guns.

100% this, even with modern social media you have to pretty much have to actively look for this poo poo.

i am always torn. i think some people can pull off both really well but many should probably just stick to one or the other. that goes into podcasts with me alot. like behind the bastards is great, great podcast that i reccomend to everyone, but sometimes the jokey poo poo just goes on and one and it just isn't funny. whats worse is when your actually really interested in the topic and some guest make an awful joke and than its back to throwing bagels for 5 mins.

its not really chapo jokes. its more just the "hur i throw bagel" and "hurr joke i have done 30 times" it was really bad in some of the episodes where like half the episode is jokes so he doesn't cover poo poo. also some of the episodes are weak as poo poo. i like hosed up comedy. i love last podcast on the left and the dollop and both of them can be comedy overload, but they have a pretty good group dynamics. robert evans just isn't funny and it sucks because i love his stuff over all. sometimes he has great guests but the more news people are terrible and are vacuums of humor. i am curious what your other complaints are.

Besides the humor, I don't like how the last 7 episodes were just reading Evans' book. He also goes after obscure grifters too much instead of big names like Joe Arpaio (he made 2 entire episodes on Jacob Whol lmao). And that whole manifesto episode was incredibly stupid.

FFXIV has one of worst implementations for housing Iíve seen. In a vacuum, itís fine. Not Wildstar levels, but good enough. To GET a house, however, you have to buy a plot of land. And plots are finite.

Yeah.

So as you imagine, housing is rare and super expensive. They donít just make more plots due to a fear of pissing off players already invested...or some grandfathered things from 1.0. I forget exactly. They did add cheaper apartments, but itís not the same.

Guild houses, however, have unlimited personal rooms for members, so itís not a complete loss.

Its interesting hearing his take on how you should use an air fryer if you want to enjoy naked wings. I've had this debate about why bother seasoning things on the outside so heavily when oil washes away most of the stuff you put on top. Most of the flavor is gonna come off whatever sauce I drown it in anyways.

And honestly, maybe it is time to get an air fryer. If I'm not saucing it to hell, and just enjoying the seasonings... Aint so much sugar and salt loaded sauce going into my gullet.

I don't know, the air-fryed wings look baked to me (Ian even points that out). I feel like you could cut out the middle man and just use an oven.

Classic Greek plays and Shakespeare were the Marvel movies of the day. The only difference now is cultural clout, and that's always what this dumbass "art" debate has been about.

I don't think it's meant to be snobbish or anything or that he's against the movies existing, just that he feels they're taking up too much room. 'Theathers have become amusement parks' is him saying that they're showing nothing but marvel movies and associated disney products, and disney are the people strongarming them to do that.

For some reason I don't think Scorsese would have a problem if Disney strong armed theaters into showing movies he liked/made.

the shakespeare comparison doesn't work in this context because shakespeare's plays were performed at like, two theaters and he wasn't trying to establish a media monopoly on, like, kabuki and vietnamese water puppets at the same time. and also a lot of government/city officials disliked him

If this debate was just about Disney monopolizing theaters, then why mention Marvel movies not being "cinema" at all? Disney would do that with more arthouse movies if they could. If not them, then Sony or Paramount. Even those indie studios too if they had the money.

See this is the problem, you're treating it as a qualitative hierarchy when it's not, it's a distinction of intent, effect, and content. "Not being cinema" is not why the MCU is bad

"No religion" isn't synonymous with "atheist", but in practice most of those people are atheists I grant you.

It's kind of a branding problem, where the most obnoxious of the new atheists define atheism in the public mind. So you may be an atheist, but you wouldn't call yourself one in public to avoid association with the legion of dickheads that do call themselves atheists in public.

It's like how you might enjoy video games, but you should never call yourself a gamer.

No, it's only becoming more acceptable to openly be an atheist, especially before when you were treated as some Satanic deviant if you didn't identify as Christian. Hell, that's still true in some places.

This "branding issue" is way less of a problem than you think, and the automatic conflation between atheist and "new atheist" or whatever is an Extremely Online viewpoint.

Same with the term "gamer" tbh.
