    Last time I checked Sterling is not Angry Joe. You're falling for clickbait tho, and that's just cute.

    Y'know when "Doritosgate" happened and some people suggested it was tedious game journo drama over nothing? With that someone could explain that actually there wasa serious point to be made about ethical journalism practices and so on and I think most people would nod and say "fair enough" even if they weren't particularly interested.

    This though? This is a prime example of tedious game journo drama over nothing. Childish from both of them.

    *EDIT*

    So in all seriousness, this is not a deal. This is just two people who happen to have an audience have a school yard tiff over why Sonic is better than Mario.

    It's drama, which is always fun, especially when you get to watch while an IGN employee like Dan Stapleton proudly states that the multi-million dollar multinational corporation he works at has four (!) times as many subscribers on YouTube as a gaming enthusiast who dresses up in funny costumes for his reviews. Other than that, it matters because it serves to discredit the likes of IGN.

    The amount of insider buzzwords in a piece like this is beyond cringe worthy:

    It's the platform exclusive twitch-action killer app that you ... oh right, can also play on PC. Such a shame that the PC is not the right ecosystem for this next great evolution. Pulitzer material, no doubt.

    I don't know why, but I feel like this is relevant here:

    Surely this whole deal must be orchestrated on some level. It's just the perfect ingredients for it to go nuclear. On one side, there's IGN. A games journalist site that isn't exactly known for their integrity, getting mad because someone calls them out on their lack of integrity in a passing comment. Then there's Angry Joe, a walking landmine for topics he's passionate about, with a persona based upon being angry - as the perfect other side for this thing.
    Pit them against each other in a matter where both sides have a point but their point is basically spent on arguing about the most asinine interpretation of words and context, where both are right.
    Boil the thing for a month, add in some salt and perhaps stress for both people: The Watch Dogs thing on IGN side, Joe's continued battle against Content ID. Stir with twitter arguments that are enforced to ridiculous comment lengths, so no actual arguing, just bomb dropping and insults. All you need for the perfect recipe of hate is an audience. Which they've got.

    A label will always fail to properly cover what a person does, but Joe is a prominent guy in the gaming corner of YouTube. His reviews frequently reach one to even two million viewers. Whatever you want to call what they are and do, both IGN and Joe have a big audience. I know we've had these discussions about reviews and scores on sites like IGN many times before, and the battle lines on this issue are well known. But every time this discussion repeats itself, especially when it does so between two popular venues for gaming news/reviews, a few more people will get a better idea of how the review business works. That can only be a good thing. The drama is just an added bonus.

    >AngryJoe shows hyperbolic IGN preview quote while bitching about Titanfall's 9 and 10 reviews
    >IGN guy calls him out on it, says it's a malicious misquote
    >AJ acts like a cunt
    >IGN guy mentions they gave Titanfall an 8.9 and there's a difference between the 8 and the 9 tiers
    >AJ bitches about the .1 difference, trying to divert the attention from the misquote to this

    I tried to understand it. Thanks for the summary. Never heard of this guy before nor do I want to again.

    That quote is from a preview in august. Seems a bit out there. Not sure why it the Xbox Live community and a couch is any better than the Origin community and a desk for it, at least from that article. And the article was in August. Review for Titanfall from the same person seemed responsible. Other than not talking about PC being more stable if you are using the right settings for your rig.

    Stapleton is butthurt and being pedantic. Joe's main point still stands that too many outlets praised the hell out of it while ignoring some of the issues. Stapleton thinks by dropping from a 9 to a "8.9" lol removes him from responsibility. Joe is not the one emphasizing the .1, Stapleton is. So glad this site doesn't use a point system.

    Hosted by Joe Vargas, the Angry Joe Show is 'a unique blend of brutally honest video reviews combined with sketch comedy. The show began in October 2008 on Youtube'. His 20-30 minute long reviews often receive between 1 and 2 million views on YouTube. Make of that what you will.

    Amazing is a bit of a buzzword in the United States, where IGN is from. The weather is amazing, dinner was amazing, it's amazing news, I'm so happy for your amazing holiday trip, the military is amazing, etc.

    In Europe its meaning is more in line with its traditional use as an adjective. In that sense Aliens: Colonial Marines was also amazing, because it 'caused great surprise'.
