  1. Eh, that's pretty weak evidence. When I first found you could hide under the bed, I stayed under for awhile as well as I assumed that maybe something was going to happen. When it didn't, it became immediately obvious that I was going to have to run back into this room and hide, though I hid in the locker as I assumed it may see me under the bed.
  2. How they go about it is what differentiates begging from just doing your thing and occasionally mentioning it. What Phil does is give his sob story of the week and talk about how he's really tight on money and mortgage is coming up and how he needs that money to pay his bills (despite pulling down 6 figures, let alone what his wife is making, but that's a whole other topic). He's pulling at heart strings and guilting people into giving money for that purpose, not just because they are enjoying the stream. THAT is what makes it begging. NO other streamer other than WoR have I seen do that.
  3. When did I say or even remotely imply that having a tips goal is begging? It isn't, to be clear. Asking for or reminding people that they can support once in awhile is fine and normal. It becomes begging when you bring it up frequently. It becomes begging when you imply or outright say you can't pay your bills unless people pay up. It's begging when you start leaning on pity ("Guys, things have been really rough for me (again) so please give me money!") repeatedly. It's begging when you repeatedly talk about how, gosh, we haven't met the tips goals guys, only so much time for people to
  4. Back tracking can be fine. However, trying to navigate through the village because so many paths are cut off is a PITA, especially if it's been awhile since you've been back and can't remember how to get to certain areas, is frustrating.
  5. Finished RE8. (No spoilers). Really liked it. Story was weird but I enjoyed what I understood of it. I only played on Normal but still felt like I needed to be fairly conservative with my ammo. Characters were good as was the voice acting, great mocap too. Game looks fantastic on PC and ran well too even on my aging GPU. I'm not normally not into RE games but definitely glad I picked this one up. Biggest gripe was the village itself, specifically navigating it. Even after shortcuts are unlocked, sometimes to go from A to B you have to go to C, Z, X, and Q first.
  6. Full time streamers need to make money obviously. They all talk about donations/bits/subs at some point. There's nothing wrong with this. However, what Phil does is unarguably begging. I watch a lot of different streamers and absolutely none of them go on about money as much as he does (barring Wings probably.) They also don't talk about how they NEED those donations or else they can't afford the basic necessities. And they sure as hell don't do it over and over and over and over and over. "Hey guys, if you like what you're seeing, you can support me by subbing, tipping, or cheering!" -

    Agreed. If he moves to YT (or any other platform) I feel like quite a few will not follow over. OFC all that really matters is that the whal.... Contributors move over. Will they? I'd think if they are willing to give him lots of money then they are big enough fans to follow him to just about any platform. Also, I can't imagine discovery is going to be great for him on other platform. He may be a bigger fish in a small pond which could help, but it'd be an overall smaller audience of potentials. Of course, he could alway stream to both. AFAIK, YouTube does not prohibit you from stre
  8. I was kinda interested in Returnal until I heard "rogue-lite." Hate the genre. Best one I played was Hades and even that one I dumped once I got to level 4 as it felt really half-assed to me and re-doing the earlier levels yet again was But yeah, rogue-like or even rogue-lite seems a very anti-DSP genre.
  9. Depends on how it's done. If you're talking about in the context of huge wobbly-boobs-barely-staying-in-their-armor anime game, sure. If you freak out at any mention of romance, sexual discussion (of a mature variety,) or sexual acts, you are most likely immature, prudish/conservative, or insecure. When you see something as simple as an exposed breast being used for feeding a baby, you really think it's normal for an adult to cover their eyes and make a big spectacle? Keep in mind this is the same person who cringes as the mention of sex and romance because he's VERY MATURE but will ha
  10. Are they uploading less than 24 hours after the stream? If so, they are breaking the rules (unless their specific contract doesn't forbid it) and risking punishment. Even if they are, this still relies on luck. To use the same analogy, just because I speed to work everyday and haven't been pulled over doesn't mean cops don't pull people over for speeding. To be clear, I'm not saying that this is why I think he got de-partnered. I've not seen enough information to pull one way or another. I just keep seeing people use the "Other people do it so that can't possible be it" excuse and I'
  11. "But officer, I've been speeding on this road every day for 3 years. You didn't catch me before so you can't give me a ticket now!" As to the ID, should PW have sent the license to Phil? Jesus H Christ no. Does that make it OK to share that license with other people, especially in a manner which makes it easy to capture that info and spread it around? No it absolutely does not. Doing something stupid doesn't excuse someone else doing something shitty. This drama shows exactly why you DON'T share crap like this even in a """""""CONFIDENTIAL""""""" environment.
  12. Very odd. I'm listening to his statements now. Why would they take partnership but not suspend him? Destiny got slapped allegedly for "encouraging" violence. I could kinda see it there because he's making statements that Twitch don't want to be associated with them but at the same time he didn't do anything that was technically against the rules (kinda?) Speculating obviously, but possibly he did something that they want to distance themselves from (possibly legally) but he didn't necessarily break any rules. What would that be exactly? Hard to say. Possibly conflating bits with monetary
  13. FUCK DOES CUNO CARE??? (They changed his voice actor though... I'm not too happy about that.) I still need to finish my original run. I went with a more Suggestion/Empathy character. I'm considering a 2nd run with either a very smart, logical character who lacks any people skills or a aggressive, physically strong and pushy one. Unfortunately Evil Genius 2, Lisa: The Painful, Valheim and other stuff has been eating up my time.
  14. It's good. I still need to finish it but it's not your typical RPG. It's got a very gritty, dark, noire feel to it. It's also VERY VERY wordy and the nice thing with the Definitive edition or whatever they are calling it is supposedly all the dialog is voiced, which is insane. FUCK DOES CUNO CARE??
