Funny, but it made me sad at the same time to see the excuses that average joe gamer gave for ignoring the game.

To be fair, if I went into a Gamestop (or other game store), specifically wanting to get a game, and an employee started telling me I should buy a sixty dollar game right there on the spot which I'd never heard of before, I'd probably make up an excuse and go look it up, not just buy it.

It's an awesome video though, and Jake Soloman is genuinely funny.

I feel like Jake could be the Cliffy B or strategy games. The guy has a ton of personality.

Jake is so awesome. He always comes across as real and funny.

There are some really funny lines in there. "Your soliders are out there, they're dying because of decisions you made, you're crying, you feel terrible about yourself...sound like a good time?"

I love Jake Solomon if for no other reason than he's so passionate about his game.

Watching all the pre-release stuff for X-com I've sorta got the same feeling. It sounds sorta creepy, but I can't help but think he's gonna be one to watch for the future. Guess it depends on if his games deliver or not, but if they do I wouldn't be surprised if his name will become common knowledge within the gaming community.

He probably doesn't own as many naked-anime-girl-covered-in-slimes t-shirts though.

I could get behind a kickstarter to remedy that

Ok. That was clever. 
 
Those people are idiots. I guess that made it funnier, though.

I want to punch every person who turned that game down directly in their oral fuck hole.

It was kinda awkward for the first minute imo. But after that it was actually entertaining.
