I have a feeling Brad and Dan quick looks will be excellent after watching this.

Also Jason in the control room was great.

Knowing how everything works though, this is probably a waste to type up. Doesn't matter how long I've been a follower of this site, it never does as based upon my identify, my thoughts are brushed into a minority pan. Doesn't matter how much I care to see things improve alongside many of this community and staff. This is almost always a forums only topic, and despite how important an issue staff and community is, there's little to no official talk from the staff. Yes, publicly telling people who are being straight out hateful that they don't represent the site is a statement, but what about the reason for the hate coming out in the first place? The whole "Giantbomb is just a bunch of white guys" thing. Let's talk about that, please! You've got to be joking yourselves if you think this statement or changing moderator policies is going to be the end of this kind of behavior.

I would like to echo this sentiment. I'm glad Jeff has laid the law down on the negative shit that's taken place in the past 48 hours but I would really like to hear the actual criticism laid at them addressed by the staff in some fashion. Maybe they aren't in a position to do so.

I don't want to come off like I'm demanding some response but I (and many others) would really appreciate it. I feel that ignoring it is really tone deaf in a way that I feel you guys aren't and haven't been in the past.

@mormonwarrior: Depression Quest isn't the only thing she's made, it just blew up and got her well known. She's made a ton of games.

@tehpickle: I don't think Respawn had anything to do with this 360 port.

I would watch Brad and Drew play through Myst, if you guys are up for a new video feature!

Thanks for another great video Patrick, your ongoing presence on the site is really great.

As for that final game, as everyone else has been saying, tough to watch. Keep on keepin' on duders.

Definitely need to see more Rorie in content. From today's puppy chat stream to him popping up in this feature, it's been great.

Keep on keeping on Brad.

@patrickklepek I think in tempus fugit the "monster" was literally time slowing down. I think I saw moments where the rain particles looked like they slowed down/stopped in mid-air in certain locations, signifying the "monster". If that's that case that's actually a pretty cool mechanic.

@brad Personally, my problem with the lighting isn't really the bloom. In HD, whenever characters are in shadow or lit by a nearby light source they entirely lose their harsh shadows and instead take on a smooth (and more realistic) lighting model that didn't exist in the GC version. I personally think it really ruins the art style in spots and kinda bums me out. Definitely agree that the game is pretty gorgeous all around though.
