Brad literally kept destorying those boxes even though you use them for the switch. I wish i erased my memory of OoT, would love to experience it as a new game again.

When faced with adversity, Brad Shoemaker does not think.

He strikes.

Bradson Shoemocker can bring the rage out of people.

@Beforet: With a sword.

#6 Posted by BBQBram (2206 posts) -

Yeah it was hard to watch, but also hilarious. I love how Vinny was all cynical about this rehash but when he saw the Master Sword sequence again he was like a gleeful kid. Awesome.

Hey, Brad didn't pull a brad in this quicklook!

#8 Posted by Spoonman671 (4568 posts) -

That was probably the most frustrating quicklook of all time.

#9 Posted by GoldenGlove (54 posts) -

Anyone who gets upset/frustrated at Brad's play is sub-human.

Brad is such a gaming anomaly, He has an S rank in Doom for XBLA.
#11 Posted by Romination (2776 posts) -

It was one of the funniest things I ever saw. I especially loved the *smash* "I feel like we're missing something obvious."

It feels like a movie moment, like in Harry Potter when Hermione is saying "A fire! But I haven't any wood..." and Ron reminds her to use her wand.

It is modern game design that was to blame.  It is so hand-holdy these days that it is fair to assume that if you were meant to use those crates for a puzzle they would be indestructible ;-)

#13 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11503 posts) -

Maybe it's my fairly photographic memory about these kinds of things, but I couldn't help but cringe when he did that. However, we all have done similar crap in these kinds of games plenty of times before, so I don't blame the man for not remembering a ton about a game that he hasn't played since it came out.

#14 Posted by Cincaid (2953 posts) -

This "lol he can't play gamez"-attitude belongs in pre-school, not here. Though I guess Internet is the biggest pre-school there is.

I'm sure all quicklooks would be a thousand times more amusing if all you pros were doing them instead.

#15 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

I always rage when Brad does a QL, he always misses completely obvious things.

#16 Posted by Kjellm87 (1728 posts) -

Give him a break.

This. I think I'm pretty damn good at video games, but I always forget to use the crates in Jabu-Jabu's belly for this exact reason. I've played through the game at least 3 or 4 times over the last 13 years, and each time, it takes me at least 20 minutes before I remember that.

Everyone misses things in games and feels like an idiot afterwards, it's just that Brad does it on camera.

#19 Posted by KarlPilkington (2690 posts) -

I like it when Brad misses things, it brings out funny reactions in the comments.

#20 Posted by MiniPato (2721 posts) -

It probably wouldn't have been as frustrating had Vinny not explicitly suggested putting a crate several times while he was destroying said crates.

Should have just commented on the video...

You can make comments for a video for a reason, dickhead. Don't just come here and shit on Brad before you have produced your own Quick Look.

I have a feeling that Brad gets super nervous when doing Quick Looks because you have to be pretty damn good at games to get a S-Rank in Doom

Probably just not a very good multitasker.
 
The OP should really of just posted a comment under the video.

Hilarious.

Why does that sound like that came out of a Discovery Channel program?

Brad is actually good at games, just not in QLs lol

Aye. Brad's got skills in a number of genres. It's just that he gets hit hardest by the QL effect.

That's really uncalled for.

#30 Edited by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

It's obvious Brad is really good at games, but not when he's talking and recording videos at the same time. Not that big of a deal.

I, for one, can not carry on a conversation and play a game at the same time. There's a certain level of concentration some people need.

To be fair, this thread is pretty uncalled for as well.

Also, I think its that you get used to solving those switch puzzles with Ruto, so once you lose her you are like 'crap now how am I supposed to solve this?' and you end up missing very obvious solutions. It's just how the human brain works.
#33 Edited by Belmont_Shadow (174 posts) -

seems like most people couldn't actually figure out the actual meaning behind my post. 
 
First of let me say that i've known Brad as a reviewer since GS days and follow him closely, one of my fav. reviewers next to Jeff, Secondly when i said lol" at the quicklook video i meant in a postiive way. IT was a really funny quicklook video and nostalgic because most of us were like that. I referenced brad playing it like for the first time as if i wanted that to be me in that situation, trying to figure stuff out in the game for the first time, i still remember it(althoug h not like that). People on here seem to think i'm taking the piss, i'm actually praising the video if anything, one of my fav. quicklooks for a while. You act like if Brad wouldn't laugh at it if he watches it over again. Lucikly for him he has a sense of humour.
 
Some of you need to take that dildo out of your ass and invest in some sense of humour. ...Or only that guy who randomely called me a dickhead because he thinks he's well hard on the internet.

What do you think the acronym "lol" actually means? Get rid of that Pilkington Avatar, he's much smarter than you.

@CrazyChris does not have a Pilkington avatar, I do.

And my comment was not in reference to your post, but to the general reaction to the quick-look.

Brad has stated before his affinity with Doom, an unfortunate quick look but he's certainly leagues above some other journalists in gaming.
#38 Posted by Trace (3551 posts) -

Well, if the original poster is going to try and escalate the flaming in this thread, then there's no reason for this discussion to continue.

These sort of discussions/quips are typically best left to the quick look's comments, regardless.
