During the history of gaming, many people had struggled to find a good, balanced, fun, and original shooter, and many developers have also struggled to actually make those games. Some shooters have failed because of a focus on microtransactions, annoying buggs, rushed development, bad optimization and so on.
Dirty Bomb is a free-to-play game on Steam that doesn’t suffer from any of those. Not only it is fun and well-made, it features a pretty welcoming learning curve, and every item on the Shop can be bought with in-game earned currency. No single dollar is needed to unlock Weapon Skins, Mercs (Classes), or Keys for Crates.
Nevertheless, Dirty Bomb is dying, ¿Why, would you ask, such a good game is close to coming to an end? Mainly, because of AngryJoe Reviews titled “AngryJoe Plays Dirty Bomb [Angry Rant!]” In this video, AngryJoe states that this game is “Pay-to-win”, wich is, and was, false.
AngryJoe claims in defense, that “Thanks for defending your new game, we understand your need to! But understand our right to be annoyed by this model (microtransactios) that is clearly built specifically for this purpose instead of normal or player selected unlocks, perks, guns and skins”
Again, there is no questioned right about getting annoyed. We understand that we can get mad, and explode in anger, (Mostly what makes AngryJoe Reviews appealing to the public) nevertheless, there is a substantial difference about getting mad and giving false information about an open-beta game.
All this being said, we would love for AngryJoe to review Dirty Bomb again, not for a good critic , (expecting this to save the game) but for an honest critic. There is a right to get mad, and hating a game, but for the appreciation and respect towards the effort the developers made in more than three years , hundreds of people playing since the open beta, and fans of AngryJoe, I request the re-evaluation this game deserves.
