    Pre-builts will never compare to custom builts. Especially because some of those builds aren't going to be optimized for a specific purpose. Usually it's always better to go and make a custom build.
     
    But yes, I agree with you on the laptops part. Always go for brans like Alienware with Laptops

    UleTheVee got a reaction from Aerielle del Rosario in How Controversy Can Bring Innovation in Competitive Games   
    A lot of people think that eSports comes with rules set in stone. This is false, especially with games like Super Smash Bros. eSports are a niche that continues on evolving and a lot of people don't notice this kind of growth. There have been many controversial matches in Super Smash Bros. history that have brought new rulesets and also resulted in the biggest cases of someone being angry and feeling completely cheated out of a game.
    But, this is the way that we learn and grow as a competitive game. So long as matches as this exist, people will learn how to further evolve and adapt the game.

    Same, because people can get frustrated with games and scream at them at most. So ysah, no need to blame gaming here.

    I'm more inclined to believe it's an anger management issue, though without knowing if this man has a history, I can't say one way or the other, myself.

    With the latest moves in the industry like the whole fragmentation of the PC playerbase with the EGS and Steam?.. I think console gaming will rise once more.

    UleTheVee reacted to Excalibur in Are User Reviews A Reliable Metric Of A Game’s Quality?   
    I think every review must be taken as one person's opinion, whether that be a regular user or paid reviewer, everyone has their biases, some intentional, some unintentional, collectively user reviews can be helpful but even that is not infallible, that's why it's important to get as many different opinions as possible from as many sources as possible, if your on the fence about something. With review bombing, both negative and in the case with Ubisoft and Assasin's Creed Unity, positive, reviews might not always be indicative of the game itself, but of the company or companies behind it, so take each review individually and see if they have valid reasoning for their review, mostly any "review bombed" review can be easily identified, so if the reasons behind a game being review bombed aren't a concern to you, then ignore those reviews.
    As for the practice of review bombing, mostly of which is used negatively, i understand and like the idea of customers having a voice, and it has an effect to be sure, it also does help make others aware if there are some major issues, they might not have been aware of, but it also does make it more difficult for those who might not care about the issues, so perhaps there is a better way to be heard, i don't know, but it does work, as it hurts the bottom line when users are turned away by the bad reviews, and that's what companies tend to listen to, anything that hurts the bottom line. So, I think that is important too.

    I probably shouldn't get involved in this, but... no, the context of AVGN's mention wasn't to claim he was the be-all-end-all. He was mentioning a counterexample. James Rolfe is "one of us", if you will, and an example of a particularly prominent figure disliking the game.
    Incidentally, I don't know if Rolfe himself actually hates Street Fighter 2010. The Angry Video Game Nerd, like the Nostalgia Critic when it comes to film reviews, is a character. As I understand it, Rolfe himself does enjoy some games the Nerd hates, though unlike Doug Walker, Rolfe isn't in the habit of giving even an unscripted, out-of-character review after the fact. Actually, I'm not sure even Doug does that consistently... Oh well.
    While there are often actual criticisms in the shows, the actors don't always hate a game/movie as much as their characters do. The entire point of AVGN is to emphasize the negatives of a game, to the point that in early episodes, he rarely had anything good to say. NC does this sometimes too, but from what I've seen, not nearly as much.
    Over time, both shows struck a balance and started resembling regular reviews, from what I've seen of recent stuff, skits aside of course. Street Fighter 2010 was an episode where AVGN was definitely in his "heavy emphasis on the negative" phase.
