@mystyr_e: He really liked Rogue Legacy last year.

In the new season, ol' Frank tries to play God of War Ascension but doesn't even get past the title screen because....reasons. After that, it seems he gives up his gaming addiction. No Vita, no remote play, no PS4! Call me crazy, but the "Is that a PS Vita?!" conversation with the kid in season 1 was pretty much the most cringe inducing thing in the entire series.

Yeah, the Vita thing in the first season was probably the worst product placement in any form of media that I remember (though I haven't watched the second season yet) .

Also, I seriously don't understand why EA insists on using its own servers. Microsoft has free high quality servers that any developer can use. Why would a company want to spend the money on its own servers if they could use someone else's superior servers for free? I don't get EA at all right now.

Microsoft's servers are not free for developers to use.

Oh, whoops. My mistake. Do you know if it costs more for them to use Microsoft's servers than using their own?

BAM!!! EA patches in Micro transactions... explains the weird sticker collection thing.

Frank Underwood was not using a Move controller when he attempted to play God of War 3. There's ton of Sony game marketing in that series. In season 1 he was playing Killzone 3 a few times and there's a small exchange about a PS Vita as well. Season only had him try to play the newest God of War but he was using a DualShock 3.

Yeah, I can't remember for sure, but I think it was a normal controller. The weird thing, though, was that the TV turned on when he pressed the PS button and the game was already running. Although, if my past roommates are a good barometer, then many people leave their games running while their TV is off.

Frank Underwood don't give a FUCK about no electricity bills. He must roll with his shit on stand-by 24/7.

There were joking about the move controller, referencing the bit in Breaking Bad where someone is playing Rage with a light gun.

Really hating on this game huh?

Posted by MrMazz

Darn I was looking forward to this game a bit but this just looks over priced and not that interesting wtihout other people.

I really want to know what the guy with the blue sunflower was thinking when Brad was following him and got up on his grill. "I can't see. I can't see! I CAN'T SEE! Get away from me!"

I don't understand what Brad sees in this, it just looks so painfully generic.

Hats - or the equivalents of them.

You know, this actually looks surprisingly good. I still have no interest in playing it ever though, and I do play online shooters a fair bit. Who on earth is this for?

Posted by 2HeadedNinja

I'm not sure what the discussion is about this ... looks like a perfectly fun game. Maybe a little on the expensive side, but thats about it.

Horde mode just makes me think, “huh, I haven't played Dungeon Defenders in a while.”

Posted by MachoFantastico

Love the colorful style, but there doesn't seem to be much else going for it.

Edited by RIDEBIRD

Well I can see why Brad hates these left trigger/right trigger games.

I wonder where the coffee table comes from.

Posted by dbene

I think the game looks quirky and sweet. Also jealous of Brad for getting to play Stick of Truth already as I saw it on his recently played!!

Posted by namesonkel

I think this is a pretty good looking game.

Posted by felakuti4life

Ugh, you guys.

Frank Underwood was playing God of War: Ascension. It's a symbol!

That scene was so weird, considering how smart the show usually is about video-games (That extended Zombie Game conversation with Badger and Skinny Pete was phenomenal).

Wow this was the worst ql I have seen in a long time why dose giantbomb know nothing about this game. Before it was out popcap said they will put MTA in it after launch depending on players stuff. And there are going to give out free map packs, to keep you playing and paying for card packs. Me and my friends are 23 with full time jobs we all bought this for some stupid fun before titanfall comes out.

I wish this game was on the PS4.

They look so bored playing this.

Seems to me like EA made this game to appeal to younger kids and their parents in the hopes that (when they're old enough to play military shooters) the kids will look to Battlefield rather than CoD. Not sure calling the game "Garden Warfare" helps that cause very much though.

I think that's a stretch - especially the part about it being a gateway to future Battlefield purchases. I think they made this game because they wanted to monetize the PvZ property at console game prices.

Also, this game isn't any more or less "childish" than PvZ itself. Or Angry Birds. Or Peggle. All cartoony and silly. The gameplay is what matters, and as Brad mentions, the gameplay is actually quite fun. It's a solid, third person, team-based shooter. And sure, the cartoonish veneer might appeal to some kids/parents.

The only blemishes on this game, are that the price is a bit too steep, and the ongoing bullshit connection issues that crop up.

... Holy shit, this game isn't the hot mess everyone thought it would be, and actually looks kind of cute and fun.

Quick, shut the internet down, it's all over now.
