Went here so I can ask without possibly being spoiled.

Are the unlocks from Ground Zeroes worth rebuying the game on PC? I got it with PS+ and plan to play it before getting into MGSV, but bought MGSV on PC. If they aren't that great or important to the gameplay I won't bother.

Without any story spoilers, it's worth doing in my opinion. The POWs you save in Ground Zeroes carry over (though their recruitment is staggered throughout the first 8 episodes or so), and on top of that you get access to a sneaking suit almost immediately. The sneaking suit isn't as good as the one you can get later on in the Phantom Pain, but it'll help in the early game.

And as far as I know, it's the only way to recruit Hideo Kojima.

I did know about the censored bit actually as well. Hmm. I'll have to think about it. Hopefully I can get it cheaper via a steam trade or if it goes on sale or something in the near future. $20 is a lot I feel for some DLC.

Need to resist watching any of this when it starts being released since I have yet to start MGSV, still need to do GZ even. Been watching the past series to get refreshed on the story. Been moving fast since I've been playing the non-cutscene parts at 1.5-2x speed in VLC and then watching the cutscenes/codecs.

Went here so I can ask without possibly being spoiled. I sort of know the cosmetic skins unlocks, but nothing else.

If they aren't that great or important to the gameplay I won't bother. Just wondering since I haven't started GZ yet and sort of want to play it on PC, but $20 is a lot to ask since I already own it on PS4.

Caught this thread. Just started playing again and curious about the raids and the 3v3 PvP thing they added. I'm at 29 now.

If anyone is still playing hit me up. I'm usually don't use a mic though if that is mandatory for raids.

a lot of women in the GG camp are also a bit annoyed by the presumption by Anti-GG'ers that there are no women in the GG group, and the mainsplaining they get insisting they've internalized misogyny and patriarchy

I lost count of how many times i've seen "internalized sexism" thrown at women these months by men who don't even make the effort to inform themselves about the people who accuse of it to even know if it is true or not

Part of what I've seen anger gamergate people the most is the hypocritical nature of many of the prominent anti-GG figures. I can't speak for gamergate since I've only watched from a distance, but I've seen too much of what you are saying that it makes my head hurt. How can the same people who want equality act in this way? It's baffling to be honest and it's upsetting to see many moderate and level headed people get either put down or verbally attacked for having differing opinions. It's not like their opinions are misguided or even offensive, they are a target simple because they use a hashtag.

I got asked:

  • Gender
  • Age
  • Country
  • Aware of Subscription
  • Type of Subscription
  • How often site visited

and that was it! Survey over.

Is the survey broken? It seems others got asked questions about content, but don't you want feedback from subscribers too?

As someone who used to work with surveys on a daily basis, you and I (I got the same questions) were simply screened out of certain portions of the survey. Don't take it personally. :P

Its hard not to when others are able to submit their opinion directly, yet others can not.

What was the point of that?

edit: I should clarify that I only got asked if I was a subscriber or not.

Can't help but be disappointed in the news. The SF based content has already started to get thin and now an official split between NY and SF just seems to reinforce that notion in my mind. Please prove me wrong Jeff, I've been a subscriber since the start and I really hope that these moves work out. They have to as GB has become a pretty large part of my life at this point from an entertainment perspective.

I barely watch any non-SF content. Like other people have posted, it's just not my thing and I don't find Alex or Patrick entertaining when on camera. This is a lot of change at once with new hires and Vinny moving. There really needs to be some more transparency in how news like this is conveyed. This came as a huge surprise and sort of went against what I thought the direction GB was taking. At least one of the new hires in the SF office will not be adding, only replacing. And I don't think its possible to replace Vinny, he'll still be here technically, but the interactions he has with Brad and Jeff are why I come to GB. I don't come for Vinny, I come for how he and the rest of the SF crew interacts with each other.
