The Controller: Battlefield 3 - Episode 1 "Boot Camp"

#1 Posted by ze_ro (181 posts) -

I just saw this and ... umm I'm not really sure how to describe what I'm going thru emotionally right now. I'd like to hear some of your thoughts, my biggest question is... why must this exist ? why now just before the game is released, it makes me think that by buying Battlefield 3, I'm part of the problem, making this kind of a horrible nightmare possible.

Before watching, think about these words really carefully: once seen, you CAN NOT UNSEE.

Why... ?

GT has some stupid shit like this too, with sports dudes or something.

The 20 seconds after 3:00 mark is when I see some mad shark jumping. God awful is what it is.

Meh, it was just meh. How come all the girls who come on these shows are there to prove that girls can game. Of course girls can play games.

Yea steer clear this show makes 0 sense and the fact they got real world people is...well just a fraction of the cauldron of shittyness that is this show.

I didn't think it was serious. Honestly, they have lost all direction...I don't even think they know what they want.

What that chick said at 0:22. Also 0:17 and 0:19 would add to a great mashup.

Ok, when that host dude just got straight-up shot while he was shillin' AMD crap, I laughed. Everything else is pretty gross, though.

If only they didn't take it so seriously...

I knew this was coming for awhile now. Still wasn't prepared for how horrible I felt watching it yesterday. Why not just spend that money on a Superbowl ad or something?

MW3's "Buy soda for XP multipliers" seems downright classy compared to this.

WHO PUT CABLE INTO MY INTERNET!

I HATE THIS SHIT.

I am not a gamer. I have a life, and I enjoy it.

What a lineeeee.

#27 Edited by Branthog (7459 posts) -

Amazing! Both Johnny Mosely and FreddieW!

Who in the hell are Johnny Mosely and FreddieW?!

Also, token "I'm totally a gamer. Like, uh... pacman is cool and stuff" girl.

Also, "I'm a hairstylist, but I'm straight". . . . Uh-huh.

I wish I had a noob. I would feed him and love him and cuddle with him and call him Mr. FuzzyBuckles and we'd be together forever and ever and ever and ever.

@ the 2:22 mark I had to stop it. When that dude talked about continuing his unemployment to work on his abs I got sick. When the show began with that irritating standard format for reality based competitive television programs, I got sickened as well. This whole thing is a steaming piece of shit and all those pro gamers are tools. Especially Tsquared, who is full of himself, and irritating to listen to. Fuck this piece of trash.

LOL "eez all aboud de tree geez, girls, green, and jeem." it's a super shitty knock off of sony's "the tester" which the first season was actually pretty good, I wasn't too fond on watching the second season at all. 1 was good enough.
