As a dude that's played a shit load of this beta...this was tough to watch at certain points.

Ryan did way better than I had expected though -- he was savage in a few of those matches.

This actually looks pretty good, I haven't even played the first and second games yet though.

This beta has consumed my life. I am Level 39 and I love it. I wish everyone could see all the amazing moments possible in this game, when you know how to play and have a bit of skill.

Wait, does Drake have a Decepticon? That hardly seems fair.

Gary's forced "Oh my tips are bad so I'm going to give tips ha ha" bits were painful

Damn, I'm level 31 and I feel like I've played an absolute fuckload of this beta. I'm going to be really sad when it ends.

Everyone, let's keep Will Smith and his anal chaffing in our prayers and hearts. Feel better buddy.

The HTML5 version of the video isn't working for me, is it just me?

Thanks Vincent!

Dear Gary,

Just watched Book of Eli for the first time, loved everything about it except the whole "now the girl is a badass desert wanderer too" thing at the very end.

The party system in this beta is fucking terrible.

I like the cinematic/cut-scene stuff to the multiplayer, just like in Killzone 3. Gary's memories of the train map in UT2004 totally brought me back. Killzone 2 also had a moving train multiplayer map as well. It was gorgeous, but it was pretty bad in terms of level design.

Wow Ryan, you actully did alright. It was far from the usual TNT shooter phenomenon of going 0-12 every match. You rolled away from grenades, shot people, it was pleasant to see.

I'm a little disappointed in Norman though: on TF2 TNT he refuses to play anything but favorite class, on Happy Hour he is grumpy as hell and on this he is just a PC fanboy. We all know he is, and so is Will and Gary probably, but they aren't dicks about it.

Why?

I have a friend like Gary. "Do it!" "Kill him!" "He killed you!"

During that loop at the end, look at the couch-cam. Apart from Garry Whitta's shoe, it's almost seamless!

With no Jeff or Brad, this TNT was just fucking boring. Patrick helped abit, but god damn, three boring ass people who talk about shit. Also, Ryan did quite good.

Because they allow a bigger party than the beta permits... which is fucking dumb. Not only that, you can't set a player limit to your party, nor can you change it to invite only.

They totally missed when intern guy got attacked by all those spiders.

I thought Nick did well, better than Will at least.

Ryan ripped the shit out of some of this

Posted by paulunga

I'm wondering if Patrick's extra dickish behaviour towards the interns is due to him looking as if he's still one himself...

Posted by VeRKK
@PeasForFees
Nick was fine I agree. But will, Norm and Garry where just boring throughout the entire thing. They were static. and when you watch something like a 3ps for 2 hours, you expect the parties involved to be more active.

GAH!!! It says "Clip Size". What the hell game?!

Which is a problem for exactly how many people on the world? One, the guy who hosts the live multiplayer show. That clearly makes it "fucking terrible". Now please, take your shit elsewhere.

Anal Chaffing.

That is all.

Posted by DougQuaid

Gary Whitta's patented Pro Tips in full effect in this TNT. With such classics as "Kill em! KILL HIM!" "Get em!" and "Shoot that guy!"

Posted by artofwar420

I played so much of the beta of Uncharted 2, I kinda want to reserve some of the "shine" and keep off U3's beta so I can enjoy the final game more.

Dat outro.

Totally agree with you. That said, they still need to limit your party to whatever the max number of players can do matchmaking together for the final game. There's no benefit to letting your party exceed the limit. Though that's definitely a minor flaw of a beta, not "fucking dumb" or "fucking terrible" like some people would like you to believe.

Gary is fantastic. I loved his advice and appraisal on TNT. Classic stuff.

Posted by MeatSim

If you want to succeed at games you should be constantly listening to Gary Whitta's advice.

Is Will Smith required to be apart giantbomb features or something?

Posted by roguehallow

Ryan was in a little bit of a mood for this one. He put the smack down on a lot of guys - including that intern. I guess if you're gonna sit on that couch, know your Ghostbusters.

Having issues downloading HD Version via Chrome. The file is 2.8GB & when I download it it stops at 2.00 GB & cuts off 1:30:00 in.

I sure hope so.

Get 'em!

Posted by Davey

I find it funny that Will and Garry complain about lack of health and medkits in games, when they both are so eager TF2 players.
