    pk-man got a reaction from shakalakaboomboom in NCIX Bankruptcy Auction - Day 2   
    That mindchop channel...wow. Just a bunch of click-bait "top 10 list" videos.  Last video was 3 months ago and only had 23k views.  23k views doesn't seem that bad. right? Well, somehow the channel has 1.2m subs so it does make you wonder.  Last 10 videos uploaded did not reach 25k views.
     
    The bids for the auction were mostly crazy. Tons of people overpaying for stuff for no real reason.

    pk-man got a reaction from shadowbyte in Pixel 2 with a Headphone Jack? – LG V30 Review   
    I like how he completely ignores the wide angle lens on the camera, a useful feature despite how everyone else is going with telephoto lens.  Way to be thorough Linus!

    pk-man got a reaction from Sacredsock in Scrapyard Wars 6 Pt. 4 FINALE - $1337 Gaming PC Challenge   
    Overall, it was an entertaining season, but episode 4's quality feels unpolished. First, as mentioned already, the audio quality is very inconsistent. Then there's lack of breakdown of both team's system.  The text appears and disappears too quickly.  No thoughts from the team on why they chose the parts they had? No final budget breakdown? How much did both teams spend? Who spent less money? No reaction to other team's system? Overall, it felt incomplete.
     
    I think this season does not paint Luke in a favourable light. Don't know if it's the editing but at times it makes him look like an hypocritical asshole. In the previous episode he got pretty salty about Linus being late when they also had time management issues. Then in this episode he talked about other team buying something brand new while he's holding a brand new SSD he got from amazon. lol
     
    Suggestion for future seasons:
    - Linus, Luke, or guest players cannot communicate directly to potential sellers anymore.  They are getting recognized thus getting deals or more leniency that normal joes won't get. (like the guy who didn't want the $4 at the skytrain station). Assign a designated person (camera guy/gal or someone else) that will handle all the talking and making the transactions in person while Linus and Luke can direct them on what to do.
    - here's an idea. Both teams start with an identical crappy system (like shitty prebuilt ones) and their goal is to improve the system with the least amount of money spent. Start with a benchmark on the base system and compare it with a final benchmark after the upgrade.  They'll have unlimited budget BUT final score is based on benchmark improvement over money spent. 
    - add purchasable perks to the game.  Teams can spend money on things such as extra time or ability to call someone to give them a ride. They can only be used once. This will add additional strategic element and drama. Also have harsher penalties for breaking rules.
    - compass cards exist, Linus.

    pk-man got a reaction from Technomancer__ in $1337 Gaming PC Challenge - Scrapyard Wars 6 Pt. 1   
    lol it makes sense they moved their base of operations to vancouver, as Langley is too far away making travel a nightmare both in terms of time and expenses.  (you can figure out where their starting location is if you are observant enough) However, ironic that Langley to Pitt Meadows is actually shorter distance. Linus forgetting day pass exist is also funny because then they wouldn't have to buy another ticket at the skytrain station.  (tip: Cash fare at buses are not accepted on skytrain) God damn it, Linus, don't eat on a bus!!. 
     
    and lol Jay and Luke just sitting at a coffee place and not ordering anything.

    pk-man got a reaction from Steve0Kneve0 in Scrapyard Wars Season 5 *Updated w/ Ep4 FINALE*   
    feels like a rushed ending. There's should been a rundown for each system not only for Jay but also for the viewers as well.  The benchmarks should've been done live at Jay's studio imo for better transparency. 
     
    I think it's ironic that Linus got all salty about them cheating when he and Luke only managed to get the parts they had because the sellers knew who they were.  As I said in a previous post, there needs to be a rule where Linus, Luke, or any participant who's a youtuber, cannot contact the seller directly to avoid getting deals that a normal person wouldn't have been able to get.

    pk-man got a reaction from SPARTAN VI in Scrapyard Wars Season 5 *Updated w/ Ep4 FINALE*   
    There needs to be a new rule where Linus and Luke cannot call any potential sellers because the people who sold them the parts clearly knew who they were and only pretended to not know so Linus could get the deal. I find it hard to believe that that guy would sell his 980ti to anybody else for only $250.

    pk-man reacted to Prysin in Linus's Disturbing Trend to Clickbait   
    Your video and sound quality, and editing quality has massively improved, but the content and the testing of the products you talk about has equally deteriorated. This is why channels like Digital Foundry and PCPerspective is gaining more traction as of late. They do the same as you, but they do it thoroughly and consistently so.
     
    Just go back to your own videos in 2014-2015 and watch your own content from before the move. Watch the CONTENT, not the picture quality and sound quality.
    The content was better. It was technical enough to satisfy the tech savvy, yet easily digestible even if you didnt understand much about tech in the first place. The testing was thorough enough (not Anandtech, The Techreport, PCPer or Digital Foundry levels of thorough) to not put the tech savvy off, yet you laid out the information clearly enough for anyone to understand it.
    You mentioned things you found out "on the side" of the testing, instead of just skipping over it as you have done on a few occasions recently. Heck you even explained WHY you tested the way you did, and WHY that was important. That was helpful to people.
     
    Heck back then you cared about THE RESULT, more then the brand name. Yet now we hear the same thing over and over "it's whatever, just pick a brand you want"... you don't reccomend anything, even when your own data clearly, without bias, suggests that product A is better then B for reason(s).
