    People will always find a way to be ass holes, annonimity really doesn't have anything to do with it.

    So in Australia it's ok to kill innocent people, but you can't talk about sex.

    Great episode! I've been on a binge watching this podcast the past couple weeks and it's really informative and a great way to spend my time. I noticed the topic got pretty touchy a few times but for some reason it made the podcast more enjoyable. Thanks

    I wouldn't entirely agree that a popular product is always a better product. It just appeals to more people. The most popular product may easily be the blandest one. But Roosterteeth isn't catering to a niche audience, so I'd say their good at appeal the the general gaming public.

    i have commented on an RVB episode saying everything wrong with it. For instance, this season is so slow and they are obviously building for something but it shouldn't take over 10 episodes. Anyway, i like negative comments better on a piece of work, as long as they are using facts and not just talking out of their ass. You can build your ego as an entertainer on the internet by reading every "Great Job!" comment but the only way to grow as a Youtuber, or Rooster Teeth employee or whatever you do on the internet you should read the negative ones and use those on future projects.

    This is one of my favorite podcast in a long time, not because of the gags and gaffs, but because you can feel the boys on the couch getting real about things that we as gamers and developers endure every time that we turn on the console or join a server. Its sickening that people think that its ok to converse with other people in such a negative way who are enjoying the same activity. It would be nice if everyone just realized that the people on the other end are having a good time and that in the end of it, it's only a game.

    On the death threats to people just because of the changes to a game - they need to learn a little about real life. The police should be contacted, and they should be arrested. Then, to give them a little extra time, maybe they should loose xbox live or whatever network they game on, until they are mature enough to handle it.

    There's a big difference between transgender/transsexual and transvestite, just so you know. The majority of people don't realise this so I was sort of confused as to which they were referring to during that one portion of this podcast, but yeah.

    just due to the natural set of circumstances in my life, I never encountered a bernie until Burnie Burns with RvB, so maybe the other two times i encountered a Bernie... I'm like wow, that guy spells bernie like an idiot... and now this podcast has enlightened me, XD

    Addiction affects the pleasure pathways in the brain. Dopamine in the pathway carries electrical impulses from neuron to neuron. Drugs and alcohol speed up or slow down (depending on the drug) the dopamine's actions. So people enjoy those speeds more than normal speeds and get addicted to the drug. Sorry for the science.

      But burnie said why is every thing about children. Children are our future. If they grow up messed up, the future will be full of messed up people with no morals

      If a kid sees murderer when they're really young they're going to think its not that bad when someone gets killed

    • BajanMaster

      How? Why should a government policy that is just ridiculous they're censoring some of the major uses of the internet to an entire nation and using children as a scapegoat. Why should I be censored for someone elses kid, why can't the parent censor their own children?

    Most people who like a game don't bother saying it. When they do it usually devolves into a war between two people who like different games. For example I like Halo, and I enjoy the older CoD's, and have a rather neutral opinion on the newer ones, mainly because I haven't played a lot of them, but it is incredibly rare for me to have a discussion with another gamer without them extravagantly bashing on one game or another. It's also a community thing, where everyone hates it, so you get sucked in too. People are like Guild Wars' Skritt in reverse. We get dumber and dumber and more emotionally inflated and primeval. For example riots, mass stampedes, lynchings, and other events where people do things in large groups that are faaaar beyond the ethical or social norm, and what you would consider yourself capable of doing.
    As a return to the podcast, I agree that anonymity needs to be handicapped, without removing safeguards from stalkers, identity theft, hackers, and other real threats that can come from identification on the internet.

    You know, I just wanted to put this out here, mainly because this weeks podcasts and shows have made an overwhelming impact on me in this regard, but also because it deserves to be said constantly; but, I joined this community after being a RvB fan for awhile, only to get hooked on all its other wonderful content....but at the same time, fully expecting to eventually get bored with said content as one sometimes does. The curse of a fad obsessed culture and what not, I just don't expect good things to last.

    but honestly, after being around for this long, and still finding myself entertained and interested by the content regularly provided by RT, especially this week with just a great set of compelling podcasts, but still plenty of comedy to keep the laughs going.....I find myself becoming resigned to the fact that RT is more like a TV network of this generation and not just a flash in the pan production, glomming onto some niche interests in one particular corner of content.

    Anyway, all this boils down to one thing.....thanks for the experience. for helping me to analyse as well as enjoy an entirely new way of viewing social content, of making a new age of technology fun and funny rather than troublesome and out of reach. thanks for putting the feeling of friendship into something that could have just as easily been served up as a commercial requirement of the tech savy idiom of our era.

    thanks for everything you do......and for the love of all that's holy, keep it up! XD

    PS....fun fact: I had to use google to search for the proper spelling of both nod and idiom, this is an increasing theme in my life that I'm not overly fond of ;p

    also, in regards to getting well thought out praise as mentioned in this podcast.....suck it GUS! XD

    The final discussion really opened my eyes to how the lack of feedback can be as bad as bad feedback. I am part of the 99% that never comments on anything because I like it all, so I don't have much to say. But I will try my best to leave some sort of comment to say that I like or dislike what I have seen. Starting here.

    Absolutely loved the discussions in this. I don't mind it when they talk "political" (actually kind of like it) and the ending discussion was honestly a bit emotional. I was born in '94 and I've been able to see the change in the gaming industry since I constantly post on gaming sites. The flood of trolling hate comments have really made me not only steer clear of the gaming sites, but it honestly makes me a bit embarrassed to be a gamer in general at times. The sheer amount of negativity on gaming related websites, youtube, and internet gaming services is nothing but pathetic. How this has become practically accepted and "normal" is disgraceful. Everything has turned into death threats, crude jokes, and racist rants. There needs to be more of these discussions and a bigger step to put an end to this immaturity. As they said earlier in the podcast, it's largely parenting as well.

    Again, this podcast was both hilarious and educational. Roosterteeth has really become my safe haven to all of the hate with both an amazing cast and a strong, awesome online community. All of you guys rock.

    I love the RT podcasts because the people who appear on them seem to balance each other so well. The fact that Burnie and Gus have known each other so long is so clear because they seem like perfect counterparts to each other.
