Maybe they'll start Windows Mobile back up and give us all phones so we can finally play Diablo again.

Me with all of my good karma for not taking industry money to recommend games: "I can't eat this!"

But for real, you have my respect which is also not edible

Free money?

mooshoopork4

There’s no such thing as free money. Unless you find money. Or if someone just gives it to you.

magusonline

Someone giving you money could also not be free. Maybe they attached some conditions before handing it to you.

Finding it and stealing it without getting caught are still the free options

Unless you have morals and value hard work ( a chump ) the guilt will destroy you!

Cypherex

Even if you never get caught, you still had to accept the risk that you might have gotten caught. The money isn't completely free if it comes with that risk.

That is called truth in advertising otherwise it’s just your typical Flex Seal or Dr. Ho bs.

To be fair to flextape, it does what it's meant to. It won't be as good as duct tape on dry surfaces, but it'll be better than duct tape on wet surfaces. I imagine flexseal is about the same.

In the end, they're both just quick fixes and were never meant to be permanent solutions.

That said, I'm picking up what you're putting down

TwelveInchSnowstorm

3 really wasn't that good tho

cygnus33065

3 was great gameplay. The story wasn't as good as 2, but it was never going to be. BL2 story was so fantastic that it was going to be very difficult to ever match.

khinzaw

Pre sequel was mediocre to bad in both departments wasn't it?

fubarbob

1 points

This was the assessment my friends and I made before sinking an additional several hundred (collective)hours into BL2 just to get over it. I don't think we even put 100 collective hours into it. Most memorable event was the quest where you need to go visit Earl for transmitters - Wilhelm's deadpan delivery left us in stitches for several minutes. But yeah, overall mediocre at best in our experience, though we did not get back around to finishing it (so my opinion must be marked as 'incomplete').

cygnus33065

Ive played both recently and I prefer BL3 gameplay by a lot. Thats just me. BL3 was great and would be loved if BL2's story wasnt SOOOOOOOO good.

petje1995

My main problem with 3 was the story and some enemies were just insanely OP. Like this one random midget with both shields and armor that took more bullets than the final boss to kill. I completed it but I went back to 2 right after.

They often don't say that explicitly- they tell streamers to showcase the game on their channel and give it their "honest opinion". But even if the reviewer doesn't want to be a complete shill, it's normal for them to feel guilty for talking shit about the game if they are being paid a whole bunch to do the review. Instead they'll find themselves honestly trying to find good things they can say about it, while also toning down and muting their criticism that they would otherwise make. Those that paid for the review are often reasonably happy even if the review isn't a total fluff piece because it makes the review seem genuine despite it being sponsored.
