I'd been playing for a long time on 1 square, wondering how people were able to afford expansions so early. Only yesterday did I realize that the price for additional plots of land had cents displayed. So I thought I needed $3,600,000 when I really only needed $3,600.00.

Drew's reaction to seeing the boss characters of the "more grounded Metal Gear game" (i.e. The Pain and The Fear) for the first time

Also, I don't have the original .gif any more, but here's a reaction shot of Dan from MGS2.

Good PC strategy game?

Red Alert 2: the mechanics are simple to understand, the story carries you through the campaign

Dawn of War 2: pared down strategy (no base building, more about units/tactics) with great setting. The sequels - Chaos Rising etc. - have some really interesting campaigns as well.

Galactic Civilizations 2: the best 4X space game since Master of Orion 2 with a fun campaign to work through.

Rollercoaster Tycoon: Can't knock a good management sim! It's technically strategy and RCT is hard to fault. If you want something a little more involved, give Startopia a go.

Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri: Everything Civ: Beyond Earth should have been.

Man, just thinking about how charmingly dumb the Red Alert series is makes me smile. The RA2 expansion Yuri's Revenge had a unit that was a giant brain floating in a glass dome that rolled around on tank treads and take control of enemy units, all while saying stupid things like "Enter the think tank!" and "Time for a brainstorm!"

The only thing about the trailer that I find even a bit amusing is how they've got those 4 cars colored to match Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde. But even that is only in that "heh, that's pretty dumb" way that I liked how the Battleship movie apparently described the alien armada weapons as "plasma energy grenades" or some shit just so they could call them "pegs".

@bigmess: That city looks like... a big mess.

I'm sorry.

I didn't catch the whole thing, but I highly recommend checking it out based on what I did see. Kevin's cameo was great.

@bbalpert: Its Andi Layne shes one of the few in the credits

Oh, duh, that makes sense. It says the name right there in the thumbnail, too. I guess I just assumed that it was one of several names getting shown over that video in the credits.

@recspec: Who's that lady in the Cena outfit in the thumbnail? I saw Brandon Stroud post a picture of her on twitter yesterday and I initially thought it was Hannah Hart. I don't think she has anything to do with wrestling, though (but maybe I'm wrong, who knows?)

Apparently it's been fixed with a patch that just came out (and I guess it happened in chapter 3, not chapter 2, according to the patch notes)
