This. People freak out over literally nothing. The fact that they're miserable has been the entire joke. They are fine, no friendships are destroyed, it's all in good humor. If they want to stop, they will. But, if they keep thinking it'll be as funny as it has been so far, then I will gladly watch each time.

I'm not worried that "their friendship will be destroyed" or anything, It's just that everybody but Dan was bored out of their fucking minds and that's not particularly entertaining. I'd rather they do something different that they will have more enthusiasm for.

Yeah, that's an entirely different, subjective issue. Personally, I find that entertaining and someone else might not. My post wasn't directed at the mind set so much, more so at the people talking about how "tense" things were getting. Especially on podcast comments and stuff, you hear that a lot. Just silly.

Indigo Prophecy is a cool freakin' game. However, I like Quantic Dream a lot more than others seem to. Popped the remaster in for a second, looks pretty rad. Has full controller support. The textures aren't crazy new, but they just look a little sharper. Support for higher resolutions. Also, it's only $10.

Also Jesus people are reading too much into this. They're grown men, and it's a dumb game. They're not going to snap.

Happens a lot more than it should around here.

"GUYS BRAD SAID SOMETHING MEAN TO DAN WHILE THEY WERE PLAYING TETRIS. I WISH THEY WOULDN'T PLAY TETRIS ANYMORE BECAUSE IT MAKES BRAD HATE DAN"

"GUYS THE BOMBCAST WAS SO AWKWARD THIS WEEK. BRAD AND JEFF SHOULD BE NICER TO EACH OTHER INSTEAD OF GETTING MAD ABOUT 'LEFT TRIGGER RIGHT TRIGGER' SHOOTERS. I DON'T WANT THE BOMB CREW TO BREAK UP"

Reading social cues is sometimes not the forte of a portion of people who might be frequenting a video game forum, I guess. I don't mean to offend; just an observation.

The bottom line is that they're only going to do things that they're comfortable with and agree with each other about doing; if they want to stop, they will.

All of the Brothers in Arms games, all day. Still waiting for BiA4. I need the resolution to that cliffhanger. Also, as someone who considers Call of Duty one of my favorite series, the amount of love that CoD1, and ESPECIALLY CoD2 receive literally blows my mind. I'd rather play CoD3 or WaW.

That seems pretty rad. Good on 'em.

Is someone going to restrain Brad when he inevitably loses his mind?

@recspec: Even though I don't watch, that single promo actually made me want to see the Wrestlemania match. Good work on their part.

No.

Wow, really? I check it out every now and then, always thought it was decent. Had a good sense of humor, never sank too far into sensationalism or clickbait like Kotaku or anything. Bums me out a bit.

So I played Ground Zeroes before playing Peace Walker (having played every other Metal Gear game except for Portable Ops, Portable Ops Plus, and Metal Gear Ac!d) and wow, it is downright crucial to understanding the severity of events in Ground Zeroes and the setup for The Phantom Pain.

Yeah, despite people who want to say otherwise, it really is pretty vital, whether you like it or not. Sure, you can play GZ and TPP without PW, but all of the emotional impact is just immediately eliminated. I actually kind of wonder if that might be why the Paz thing became so controversial, because the proper context for her character and Chico and everything was completely lost without knowledge of Peace Walker.
