    So Adam says about shadow of war crate things that people dont like the random chance loot system, but a lot of people like the Overwatch type of loot system which is the exact same thing. You can get them both for free after acquiring a certain amount of in game currency (as far as im aware), so what's the difference? 


    *After watching more of the podcast I've realised that the guys say overwatch is just purely aesthetic whereas shadow of war will have gameplay differences. Pardon my ignorance.

    Got my RT First box today from July.  Loving the Funhaus training card, then found out 20% of them were signed and I didn't get one.  SALTY AF.  Love the content, you bunch of cucks.

    Not to sound like a dickbag, but I will, I can't believe these cooking "revelations" are just now coming to these guys. This is like basic shit.

      I never took cooking classes and grew up without any solid instruction on how to cook. Sorry you're too good at cooking for the rest of us?

      Never said I was somehow better. Somethings I learn from you as you mention them on the podcast and some things I just find basic, like the oil example. No need to get defensive.

      "Dude, all I did was insult your intelligence about something I am clearly more experienced in then you. Obviously you should have all of the exact same knowledge as me...


      No need to get defensive, bro"


      95% of the time that you start off a sentence with "not to sound like a dick bag, but..." you end up sounding like a dick bag.

      You see how I said that I will sound like a dickbag. Also how does something so arbitrary as a cooking skill insult a persons' intelligence...

    I have been studying Elyse's face for the last hour. I don't think I've ever seen someone so disinterested in the ongoing conversation, and then she pipes up with a cutting quip, having been listening intently all along. Elyse, if that Funhaus shtick doesn't work out you could have a promising shot at professional poker. Or a woman in Game of Thrones.

      The five of them look like they have been stuck in a room with no air conditioning all day. Elyse and Bruce have the same face my parents would have at the end of a long summer day at the NJ shore. Not miserable 'cause it was still kind of a good day, but just spent. Don't know why I felt the need to share that, but hey...

      They all look like that during podcasts, and have for the last 134 episodes. It's hard to not look bored when you're talking on camera for over an hour with no cuts. Not really sure why you're choosing to focus just on Elyse.

    Achievement Hunter has started their Git Gud series in Rainbow 6 Siege. I would very much welcome a Funhaus equivalent in Overwatch. I'm excited to watch that when it comes out. Their other overwatch videos were always captivating for me.

    The video game music was definitely distracting, even after turning it down. It was difficult to hear Elyse at times because she is so soft spoken. There was definitely some good conversation happening, but i feel like I missed some of it.

    Yes the music is too loud (only for the first 15 mins) which sucks for the listeners but I think you have to look at this from their end. They have great a podcast every week without any issues or problems BUT of course this has to happen during First Week. This is one of the weeks where they are hoping for new listeners and subscribers and to have an error like this happen must be a bummer for them.

    Kudos to the editors for posting this within a couple of hours of it being live...


    ...however...


    Maybe listen to the first ten minutes and spend some time fixing technical issues before uploading next time...

      Then it wouldn't have gone up so quickly. The VOD goes up right away as a nod to those who spend money. As soon as it was fixed, the fixed version went up.


      We can simply not upload the earlier version, but that doesn't mean you'll get a properly balanced podcast any faster.

      I didn't realize that you guys actually fix and reupload videos, good on you guys for doing that. I actually meant to infer that I would rather wait for a "fixed" version than watch a "quick and dirty" version, but like you said, you give us the best of both worlds. I'll just wait a day if it's a little off next time, no big. <3

    Torchlight 2 has great single player, and no DLC. No one made you buy it, and it's not required to play multiplayer... It even has a ton of free mods. Like - you're upset that you bought a game you didn't end up playing? Sorry? Welcome to the real world. 

    A better example was CoD. Where you need the DLC to play with friends. That's an added purchase - one that costs more than Torchlight 2 does when it's on sale for $5. Sorry for getting my heckles up over an indie dev being shit on, but it's a really garbage example.

    Im not sure i agree that loot boxes are a lesser evil than map packs/ traditional dlc mostly becaue of the amount of work the developers put into it the content and what you're actually getting. if you're buying a map pack/dlc you're not entering yourself into a lotto to maybe get the item you want you're paying for content in full content that devs probably put way more time and effort into than just some random cosmetic items. idk it just seems like the devs or more likley the executives care less about giving us more actual game content than they do making way more on lower effort projects like skins. Id like to see how much people spend on lootboxes in games like overwatch (which to be fair gives us more maps for free but not actual new game types which is what id really want from paid dlc) im sure they are making way more money to give us less real content and thats why i get butthurt about lootboxes both cosmetic and pay-to-win garbage.

      There have been plenty of times where fire up the old Battlefield 1 and look for a server running the premium maps and find that nay...there is none (and good luck getting a game of frontlines). Despite enjoying the extra content and the effort that has gone into it, the actual game content is useless to me if the player-base divide is such that I can't get the full use out of it. Maybe this is just my unique experience; but so far I've had a much more positive outcome from the "buy enough lotto tickets and eventually everyone will get a free map" option.

      @wallaby thats the exact reason I haven't plopped $50 for the premium pass, people don't even play all the game modes that come WITH the game (looking at you operations)

      @wallaby interesting. what platform are you on? I haven't bought any of the Bf1 dlc and I haven't had any problems finding games sure it may take a little longer to find a match but I haven't been barred from playing the actual vannila game I bouhght. 

      You also have to think about how much gameplay you got out of it before the dlc dropped. I don't think it's entirely unreasonable to ask for more money for more gamemodes and maps. I do however think EA should have servers up to support vannila players but if the community moves away from that well that's just business and I don't think EA has the responsibility to not leave people behind.

    The Knuckles rabbithole they went down sold me on it. I would have given HardNettin' to Ivan if it was just him against that family tree pic, but once they opened that can of worms, I was all in on the Knuck. I hope Lawrence goes deeper into that hole for next week when it wins. Also Ivan I think still makes it to the Hall of HardNettin' for how awesomely hard he has been nettin' for years.

    I really don't understand why add micro-transactions and, even if they aren't game breaking, still create bad PR for a side game-mode that barely anybody was going to play anyways. Seriously shooting themselves in the foot.

      Also, GTA Online is an awful example because that DLC is still locked behind progression (level requirements & business requirements) and people are already totally used to dying (from a tank or a hacker) at random if they've played the game more than 2 hours online. That's not whats encouraging them to stop playing or give the game more money.
