Angry Joe is f*cking awful. A cancerous channel.

4 EPIC 2 FAIL, actually

It's the avenger's font that really gets to me though, especially with how uncleanly compressed the ANGRY is. Extra points for EPIC FAIL being not only all-caps, but distressed (gold distressing no less) and at a jaunty angle against a background that already has text overlayed.

Still, I guess it's not that bad

It's not this

Ok. I get that he's a bit gooseberry fool and a symptom of the awful YouTuber trend, but cancerous? Be genuinely interested in why you think that. He's no "I'm not racist promise" Pewdiepie or "Scientifically Provable as the Most Annoying Person Ever" Jake Paul, that's for sure.

People who describe things they don't like as "cancerous" are pretty going awful.

Back on-topic, EA CFO talks about making a new action franchise and the potential for "uncapped monetisation"

Elsewhere, Jorgensen suggests EA's rolling initiatives, such as FIFA and Madden's respective Ultimate Team features, create scope for "uncapped monetisation".


He says: "If you have a live service component to [games on EA Access and Origins Access], you can have a subscription that's uncapped," he said. "Give people a way to spend money on things they want to do and that they enjoy doing [versus] simply capping them at $9 or $10 per month and that's all they can ever spend.


I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

When the creators of 30-in-1 party games think you're creatively bereft you know you've messed up.

It’s not an ‘either/or’ statement, a lot of YouTubers are tools but to attempt to validate Angry Joe as something other than a gimmick is disingenuous.

While going through his thumbnails just now to watch a video thinking he might be not gooseberry fool these days I seen EPIC FAIL twice, I mean FFS. Whincing whilst I pressed play on a battlefront 2 video It started off well, reasoned statements things ok then 5 mins in the screaming, back to gimmick land. Yeah strawberry float off angry joe.

Do you think the creators of the infamous horse armour are now vindicated?

:lol: I certainly imagine they feel like they were just before their time; I don't think it would cause anywhere near as big a fuss today.

What Xbox One exclusives reviews of his did you not agree with, then?

Angry Joe is great. He is poking fun at people who make zero effort on their YouTube videos, just like these game companies (EA in NfS case) make zero effort on their games.

Angry Joe is harmless, seems like a decent guy really. Not like some of the other gamer personalities on YouTube.

According to Eurogamer the Dutch gambling commission is also looking into it now.
