I'm surprised this is "anticipated to be rated mature"; from all of the preview coverage it seemed like it was aiming for a more mystical, disney-ish vibe. Nevertheless excited for it.

@dizzyhippos: I was Luna, wouldn't call it throws. The spectator didn't show it but druid went a super-greedy double midas build which paid off. We didn't punish it fast enough and didn't have enough damage to push against their really, REALLY tanky team until it was too late. I was the only one farming well past the ten minute mark too on our team if you look at it in terms of cs. Still a fun game but can't help but regret not choosing lifestealer. I didn't want to be that guy though.

Also, for those looking for more commentary I casted the 3rd game they played after the stream in-game. If you can find match ID and want to watch that it may give some more insight. Then again, I did a much worse job than I did when casting the GB Inhouse League games :/

It seems weird to me that this gets a number IV with it, considering while it is a different character it isn't a huge jump in time or location (as far as I know). I'm still with seemingly the rest of the internet that feudal Japan or ancient China would've been better. I loved 2 and Brotherhood but I can't help but feel AC is going downhill.

As someone who plays a lot of dota this just seems boring, and I agree with whoever said it's like saying halo wars is a simplified version of starcraft. At least it seems to have somehow managed to transition the controls over to the console. Additionally, the dota community seems to be getting a bad rap in these comments that it doesn't really deserve imo. Firstly, you should try to play with friends who know the game somewhat and can ease you into it. Obviously not everyone can do that, but if you want to avoid rage you can turn of voice/text chat. The reason people are afraid to start playing is the flaming, but if you put in a half-hour to an hour of research before your first game (for instance reading Purge's Guide) you'll hopefully avoid feeding and being blamed.

I played a fair amount of the beta and it's fun if you find a group and get things done, otherwise it's a lonely mess. Also, in my experience the Vanu are a bunch of teenagers with no coordination. NC all the way.

Crap the launcher won't work because of a "connection issue". Never happened when it was in beta. :/

2nd Edit: Turns out you have to re-download everything now that the beta is over. Lame.

@Splodge: If I remember correctly during the PC quick look of the original he said something like "I've played this game through twice on both consoles and still only played the soldier" so there's no guarantee he stuck with another class for a meaningful amount of time with this one.

Was this from Molyjam?

I guess this may come across as dickish, but I wish they had just redone the quick look (and yes I know that would be another 45 minutes of work for brad and ryan and a bit more for drew). I mean, I guess it's mildly amusing how incompetent brad and ryan can be but aren't QLS supposed to be a short yet more or less accurate depiction of what to expect in a game? This was clearly not that. Normally they take a step to avoid scenarios like these by playing levels they've done before, and it amazes me that Brad still gets stuck on Lego games over and over yet never changes his strategy going into it. Ryan is way to quick to be like "FUCK THIS GAME" instead of reading too.

@nan0fear: same thing happened to me, really sucked cause not only did I not realize it but once I did there was still no way to avoid "cheating". I think Patrick really oversold this game too, no way was this worthy to compete in best downloadable game or whatever last year. It was decent for the 5 bucks I spent but not a great value.

@Branthog: I agree, I was thinking this the whole time listening to the podcast. My issue wasn't so much that Skyrim was chosen as GOTY, it was that Jeff and Vinny clearly won the argument and yet Skyrim was still chosen. I remember the part where Jeff was complaining about getting the ice boss every single time and Brad was like "I've never had that problem"; Jeff seemed so pissed off and I felt him cause no one I know hasn't had that problem. Then Ryan's argument against Saint's Row of "I played it for 30 hours and wanted more so I resent it for that" just made me go wtf. That's not a valid argument at all, plus he hadn't even played much of Skyrim so how could he be sure he wouldn't have had the same problems with it as Jeff AND Saint's Row was on his personal GOTY list. The whole discussion made zero sense to me (also every year Brad seems to be the one who fights tooth and nail for everything, which I respect but it comes off as asshole-ish sometimes).
