Same thing has been happening to me. Though I think mine has been like this for about a month.

I'm all for the competition between services but it is weird for me to see all the cheering for playstation plus by the giantbomb guys. If they like it, fine, but they've sounded like fanboys at times.

Say positive stuff about 360, "OMG, 360 fanboys"

Say positive stuff about PS3, "OMG, PS3 fanboys"

Say they're playing iOS games, "OMG, Apple fanboys"

Being down on the Wii U, "OMG, anti-Nintendo fanboys"

Whatever they say gets twisted against them.

That's cool but I wasn't simply referring to them saying something positive about the service. Good try, though.

The cheer leading that Patrick and the others have done for playstation plus has been really strange.

They're saying good things about Plus because, guess what, Plus is doing good things. They're being negative about Gold because guess what, there are things to be negative about it.

I just don't get it and I'm not going to pretend I do. Why do people own this bizarre device again? Maybe I just don't keep up with it enough but it just seems so weird that most of the Vita news I see is about PS1 and PSP games with only an occasional mention of actual Vita, made for the Vita, games.

To play video games? I bought one to play Gravity Rush, which is pretty cool and to play Persona 4: Golden when it eventually comes out.

But I thought this was a comfy couch game, Phil.

Yes indeed. The millions-years old Reapers need to prove their theory of "eventually synthetics will destroy all organics" to the thousands-years old humans who have settled one conflict with synthetics.

But of course because they haven't spoken of any particular times synthetics actively threatened all organic life there must not have been any, ever. That's how logic works, right?

In fact, as WrenchNinja points out, that the Reapers exist and have been actively stopping that from ever having a chance of happening, resulting in organics still existing, is all proof that it can't ever happen anyways.

I mean, look at all the things we learn about synthetics. Cooperation and even commingling are possible! How beautiful it would have been for the cruel heartless Reapers to have seen Legion and Tali holding hands, or EDI embracing Joker, and realize that they were wrong all along, as a single orange goopy tear creeped down their bluish carapaces.

QUE CELINE DION; ROLL CREDITS

There are definitely gripes to be had with the original Mass Effect 3 ending, but some peoplereally got behind the stupid ones.

Yes. They do need to prove it. We have no reason to believe killer robots that repurpose other species as space zombies, trying to violently psychically mind rape individuals, that also use our liquefied remains to make more of themselves, use tactics such as using other synthetics to kill us to save us all from synthetics wiping us out and turning ourselves against each other. All for the benefit that not all organics will be wiped out by synthetics. It's very hard to swallow.

I never said that there were never any synthetics that tried to wipe out all organics. What I am saying is that they are just as capable of coexisting. The same with organics. The Krogan have been a bigger threat to the galaxy than any synthetic has been before the Reapers. Should we have gone under the assumption that it is impossible for the Krogan to cooperate and their only inclination is to war and conquer?

The Reapers are synthetics, as much as they want to deny it and say they are blend of both, having little jelly tubes don't make them technorganic. The fact that they exist at all, the fact that they haven't decided to wipe out all organics over the course of millions of years is enough proof that their theory is invalid.

We have more support in the series that AI's first thought isn't going to be kill all organics than we do the opposite. If you want to prove a point, show some evidence. That's how any argument works.

I don't see how it's a stupid gripe at all and I don't feel the mocking is warranted.

You still don't get it. They're not trying to save YOU. They're trying to save organic life in its entirety. Just because the Reapers want to kill all humans, does not mean they want to kill all organic life. Which they clearly do not. If this cycle completed as normal, humans would be dead... but varren, and pyjaks, and dogs, and horses would live on. And eventually one of them would come to evolve into a sentient species, become civilized, master space flight and discover mass effect technology. The cycle will continue in perpetuity, and no organic race will become powerful enough to create an AI that completely erases organic life forever. The difference between the Reapers and the ultimate synthetic creature they fear is that the Reapers have ethical restraint; they see organic life as worth saving at some level, so they will stop at advanced spacefaring life. Without that ethical restraint, they would exterminate the humans, and the varren, and the fish in the sea, and plant life, even bacteria and single-celled life, anything organic they would eliminate to prevent it from being a threat. THAT is the key to its actions. The problem is is that you look at this from the view point of your life and the 100 years you have, or maybe the 6-8 thousand years of human civilization... the star child (and the Reapers) look at it from millions and millions of years. What Sovereign is true "you can't grasp our nature". There's a lot about the Mass Effect ending that doesn't make sense (and more that is just poorly done in a storytelling sense), but this part ABSOLUTELY CHECKS OUT. For real.

I get it just fine dude. I know that they only kill advanced organic life. I'm saying it's a load of bullshit since they don't back up their assertion that A.I.s will try to kill all organic life if organic life continues unabated. The fact that they have restraint at all disapproves their assertion. The fact they exist at all, that any organics exist at all disapproves the assertion. They have absolutely no proof to back up such an idiotic conclusion. On the other side, we have organics winning wars against synthetics, synthetics not wanting to fight organics, synthetics falling in love with organics and synthetics not killing all organics over millions of years.

anics will eventually create synthetics that will eventually try to wipe out all organics" is made is only available via optional downloadable content?

I didn't play the Javik DLC, so answer this for me: what happened to the symbiotic synthetics?

It's hilarious he brings up the Zha'til, the threat the Protheans fought. One, because the Protheans were winning. Two, because the Reapers are the cause of the corruption of the Zha. So the Reapers want to save organics from synthetics...by making whatever synthetics that exist go to war with them? They do the exact same thing with the Geth. It makes absolutely no sense for someone to say they're saving you from something by killing you with the same something.

Of course there were. But they were drowned out by the people who did nothing but complain about how the game wasn't made exactly the way they wanted it. It's unfair that the loudest always ruin things for everyone else but I think it's pretty understandable for the press, and anyone else, to get extremely weary and jaded about the whole thing.

No, that's not an excuse to ignore any sort of dialogue.

Perhaps if they acted like adults they would have been treated as such.

You're doing what the press did. Assuming every one was acting childish and acting like none of them had any arguments worth listening to.
