This is pretty much the kind of game that needs to be shown off by people who know the game. They are right that there are problems with the game, but it is still pretty damn fun when you play it with some friends. Doing the harder maps stealthy is always fun, and you can do more "Heat" like stuff than just "go in and shoot like crazy". That said, I play on PC, don't think I'd ever play this on a console.

Awesome. When they put actual scenes from comics like "The Killing Joke" it makes me more likely to get this! Hope there are more "memories" of the Joker like that.

I'm also one of those who liked BL2 better than one. Cooler locales, and more of them. I thought the larger difference between weapon manufacturers was cool, and made weapons more distinct. Sure BL1 had cool weapons, but so did BL2.
And I liked almost every character in BL2. Tiny Tina is the only one I kinda hated, but outside of the main game she is pretty funny. Especially in her own DLC.

Don't really see all the hate when it comes to Handsome Jack either. He is kinda like a mix between Archer and Barry from Archer. In fact, I started watching Archer because someone compared Handsome Jack with Archer.
Mr. Torgue is great, and his DLC is worth it just for his lines alone.

So yeah, BL2 is a vast improvement over BL1, a better game in every way in my opinion.

@mechamarshmallow: Everyone is different. Some people, like me, can have genuine emotional responses to anything. Games, movies, books, songs. This intro got to me, like a lot of other stuff in games have done over the years. I feel I get more out of things because of it, so I am glad my brain is wired that way.

This looks gorgeous, seems to play well and has a story I am interested in seeing. Yet again the Bomb Squad has made me want a game I hadn't even heard of before.

Majora's Mask is one of the best Zelda games, and also one of the best games I have ever played. The irrational anger I feel when hearing the, in my opinion, bullshit being spouted about it compelled me to write that down. Carry on, great show this week, as usual.

This entire thing was goddamn awesome. Also, anyone else thinking Troy Baker looks like a Jedi right now? I mean, he has the hair and the beard. And the clothes it seems.

This list is yet another reason why @drewbert is an awesome human being. The analogy for Destiny is brilliant!

Glad to see Wolfenstein on more lists as well. Hell, I really want to get in there to continue my "999" playthrough now. Yes, after beating it I instantly went back in to beat the other timeline, while also finding all the Enigma codes. By solving the Enigma codes you get special game modes. The first which is 999 Mode, where the game is set to "Brutal" difficulty, you get unlimited ammo and grenades, and you start every encounter with 999 health which ticks down. It. Is. Crazy.

@sbaitso: Came to say this, a bit sad that only one duder already had done so. That is something that can be done to more or less every trailer and CG cinematic that doesn't contain actual footage from the game. So I don't know. Just seemed stupid.

I completely forgot to dub UVB-76 into the appropriate email and now I feel like a total failure. :(

You know what? By forgetting to do that you made that part pretty damn sinister. I went between thinking you edited out that part to make it seem like you had to for some awful reason, or that all of you just sat there in silent terror. So that was actually a happy and good mistake.
Not reading my email about Wolfenstein collectables though, that I will never forgive you for. Oh, fine, I forgive you. You are doing a great job by the way.

@2headedninja: Same here. Handsome Jack is a great character, the story was decent and the game was really funny. I didn't like Tiny Tina in the vanilla game, but in her DLC she was a lot better.

This also seems a lot better than I thought it would be. Think I need this...
Still ten minutes left of the video as I write this, but it doesn't seem like they are going to find out that putting skill points in specific stuff for Wilhelm actually changes him more and more into the robot monstrosity he is in Borderlands 2. So it seems they have done a lot of cool stuff with this.
