I don't get the negativity some people have towards this UPF. Vinny's game was exhasted pretty quick (and looked boring & sparse as hell to me), and the stream stuff was goddamn fascinating. A real weird look into some beautiful messed-up internet that reminded me of GB circa '09. Also didn't hear the guys bash people on the stream at all, so no idea what that criticism was about. Some gentle fun-poking and comments, maybe. It also brought up a great discussion about the concept of this kind of always-on voyeuristic streaming, and people's true understanding of it.
Also, they were clearly having FUN. DO YOU HATE THEM BEING HAPPY?
If it wasn't subscriber content, I'd say they can do whatever they want. But considering that UPF is basically all that remains of paid content these days, if this is the direction it's headed I really don't think I'm getting a whole lot for my dollar anymore. I'm here to watch the guys play and talk about video games. I'm not here to pay them to be my surrogate friends.
And please don't suggest I go watch week one hundred and twelve of Demon/Dark Souls streams, because I'm not interested. It's easy to just be glib and say "get over it", but as a paid subscriber I have a right to reevaluate the value I'm getting for this subscription.
