Wow, they actually seemed to have some reverence for System Shock 2. I'm surprised, I really expected the GB guys to rag on how "dated" it looks and how stupid they think it is.

Ryan genuinely seemed to enjoy playing it too, and he actually was able to figure things out. I really expected a lot of complaining about obtuse controls, blocky graphics, and how the game doesn't lead you or tell you what to do enough. I was kind of dumbfounded that Ryan complained about the weird controls but didn't rebind them, that's the first thing I do any time I start a PC game up.

I do agree with Brad about being bummed out about Bioshock after having played SS2. Bioshock literally just reused most of SS2's mechanics and plot beats, which was really surprising and a little disheartening when you realize that even the twist was reused.

I would happily watch Brad play a lot more Banjo.

I loved Boom Boom Rocket and how strange it was.

nuts and bolts is complete trash. Its got lots of character buts its devoid of enjoyment

Posted by Dezztroy

I really hope they continue with System Shock in the future. Making it a mini-endurance run featured every friday would be amazing.

Was at my son't piano recital when this was live, looking forward to downloading the HD version, throwing it up on the LCD projector and laying in my recliner for a couple of hours watching it. Saturdays.

Nice Zombo.com reference at the intro.

EVEN IF they brought back Jet Moto, I probably wouldn't buy a new console.

I loved Drew and Brad laughing at the dancing robot while Jeff looks on with dead, unfeeling eyes.

Edited by Black_Cat

OMG I've played SS2 maybe a dozen times and I've never seen that dancing robot. BEST GAME EVER!

Love how enthusiastic (and desperate) Jeff his to talk next gen, we are desperate for new systems.

I really hope Sony keeps the XMB for the PS4, it is simple and easily understandable, and I love the game specific backgrounds when you stay on its icon.

Ryan playing with the dog is the best thing ever.

Niceeee, also Sara loves a bit of Brad... "Don't tell your girlfriend..." Awkward.

"Last time I drank Tequila, it was with a pregnant girl."

Jeff, that's the funniest damn thing you've ever said.

The complete lack of context makes it the best damn thing.

That whole exchange at the end was pretty priceless considering they were sitting with sara. Especially when Ryan said "well...not yet"

Edited by mrfluke

well brad was definitely a downer on this episode. sucks that this one was the free one considering the others were soo much better than this one.

Lol, Sony do marketing? Brad cracks me up.

Edited by HighPriest

@mrfluke: I think that was only for the live stream, and only because they were having too many problems with the site to keep non-subscribers out and let subscribers in.

Edited by MeatSim

I kinda wish Sony and Microsoft would pull a Saturn just so we don't have go through a drawn out next gen announcements/reveals.

Your brave confession about alcohol and pregnant women was the meaningful next step in proving this show is unprofessional.

hey @drewbert i believe this episode is supposed to be free and not filed under premium subscriber content?

https://twitter.com/jeffgerstmann/status/302559651273265153

The livestream was open to everyone because the site was really iffy at the time so the only reliable way to watch was twitch.

but see that same situation happened for bradley may cry part 2, and looking at the subscribers video page, it doesnt seem to be tagged as premium content (and its still filed under subscribers), but this unprofessional fridays was (when this one was supposed to be free?).

i dunno *shrug*

@snide When I am watching videos on the new site, they play fine when they are the initial size, but when I full screen them, they get really choppy and seem like they are skipping frames. Just fyi, new site looks great too.

Posted by zoozilla

That ending was hilarious, but I'm kind of bummed we didn't see a little more of the Falcon. I wanted to see Half-Life 2.

Posted by Spiritof

If I'm watching this video on a Saturday afternoon, am I in the chat?

Posted by Ghost_Cat

Inconceivable!

Same here, but Windowed Fullscreen is real smooth and cool though.

Brad's opinion of Bioshock continues to confound me.

Posted by rchen

@mrfluke: They are two separate things...one of the editors accidentally published Bradley may cry to Youtube, thus making it free to all. As for the Unprofessional Fridays we were having too many database/server issues so just opened it up to everyone.

Thanks for understanding! Next week will be back to normal (hopefully)

Hahaha tequila with a pregnant girl

The show ended on such a weird note.

Sticky videos are the best.

System Shock 2 on GOG!?

Holy crap.

Edited by Kratch

Jumping Flash for PS4 would make me want a PS4.

Posted by graf1k

Man, I never played System Shock 2 which kind of amazes me for multiple reasons, but damn, a lot of the HUD, UI and even the items/weapons look EXACTLY like Deus Ex which at the time was one of my favorite games ever.

Galaga Legions DX is barely different from the original, I don't get their distaste for the games, they're solid Galaga-inspired shooters. Though, the Space Invaders revival games are probably the best of the games of that ilk.

ALSO FUCK YEAH APE ESCAPE!

Things got super awkward once Sara sat on the couch. I love it.

ah ok, my mistake then. very sorry if this looked like i was causing trouble or raging about t, i was just confused. as this wasnt the first time issues like this had happened, as patrick did a 999 spoilercast for premium members, but i found it under features, and all the stuff under features is free for everyone ( i did PM patrick and he fixed it) minor issue overall though.

I appreciate the reply, and the sites been pretty stable for me now havent had no errors with my usage of the site lately.

but seems theres a bug with either replying to people or getting a notification that u replied to my message

as in if i didnt have checked back at the comments for this video. i would have never knew you replied back

this Friday was too professional following tutorial and such

Posted by mellotronrules

rewatching that last bit now- it suddenly occurs to me that ryan would make a fantastic bond villain with that diminutive hound.
