Another Quick Look where they seem to be bothered to play the game and do nothing but rag on it. Jeff seems to be back to his Kane and Lynch attitude where he shits on everything that isn't exactly what he likes and his army of yes men follow along. At this point just stop doing Quick Looks and go do whatever it is you obviously want to be doing instead. Do you have someone watch these before posting them? After a Quick Look like this where you say nothing positive and see how you literally say you don't care about how the game plays, the fact you allow it to be posted is unprofessional and does a disservice to the game, the audience and your credibility. I realize the site is about being too cool to give a shit about things like objective opinions or what someone who doesn't play more than a dozen games a year might get out of a title compared to a jaded reviewer that has played hundreds of games in their lifetime and hates everything that isn't new or to their specific tastes. The overall attitude and enthusiasm of the staff these last few months has really brought down the quality of the coverage and has me asking why they they keep doing what they apparently don't like to do anymore. Too much snarkiness and not enough old-fashioned game coverage. The game isn't great, we get it, but at least be respectful and point out the interesting bits and illustrate how it plays without adding how you really could care less. You'd be better off just stopping a few minutes in and not doing a Quick Look at all. I realize you're all now "old men" in an industry that is centered on the 14-25 demographic, you feel like you need to be extra angsty to fit in to a generation you're not part of, that hating on everything and acting blase about the next "big" game is what is expected from the internet generation. Being 36 myself I've realized you just look like a fool trying to do so. Like a dad at his kid's school using terms like fresh or sweet, a decade after they were out of fashion. Instead of trying to lower your standards to reach the dipshit generation, maintain your dignity and set an example for what game coverage should be. Anyone can play a game and talk shit about it on Youtube, use your years of experience to compare and contrast and point out why a game is or isn't good, while also remembering that people play games to have fun - even when it's mindless and generic. Shit, Dynasty Warriors is still a thing, if that doesn't show you what people will play then you don't really understand the audience.

Agreed 100%.

Not sure if I'm ready to drop an another 50$ for this site when my sub runs out.

I agree too, their quick looks have been kind of dickish lately. They are regularly shitting on the "ok" games (3 out of 5 stars) like they were 1 star games. Something tells me it has to do with the release of Mortal Kombat unfairly raising the bar because of nostalgia and the fact that is very well made... To prove my point on nostalgia, I just watched the Zelda Quick look and dude... it was a fucking jerk fest of "I remember this yeah fun time YAY! Wooo back in my day"....fuck.

Reset your senses guys (GB crew), so that games like these don't piss you guys off so much. It kind of bums me out to see such hatred on something that really isn't as bad as they are making it out to be.

lmao reading this in 2021 is wild

@howiegaming: Yes! It's like one of those old football/ Nike commercials with Ronaldinho and all.

@thomasonfa: Yeah I've had to resort to watching Youtubers finish games that I know I won't come back to finish. I really want to play more of KC:D though, it reminds me of amazing times I had exploring around in Oblivion when I was younger, and I can't get that by watching someone else play it :)

About the base camp discussion - I absolutely loved returning to the camp in Dragon Age: Origins. It was a really pleasant atmosphere, the music was great and it was a good time to catch up with the crew.

@ntm:Interesting! Saint Denis sounds cool, I'm still in Valentine and the surrounding area. I've been trying to play it in an immersive way too now, and since the the slow controls have stopped bothering me. Agreed about the seriousness too. I actually forget that I can possibly kill NPCs like in GTA, the thought never crosses my mind and if it happened by accident, I'd probably reload. Have fun! :)

@ntm: Yeah I'd love to finish the game too, and I hope I will eventually haha. I too missed out on some small opportunities as well. After chasing that guy in Valentine I was supposed to return the horse I used to its owner, but ended up running over the guy with his horse instead lol. At the time a bunch of opportunities popped up but I never saw those again after reloading. The owner couldn't be found either. You can really miss some things in this game!

Also, it's been a day now since I played it last and I find myself randomly thinking of the game world and wanting to revisit it. That's cool!

In playing the game (99 percent in first person) I find myself taking my sweet time just looking at the world, seeing what people and animals are doing, all the while taking care of my horse. Most modern open world games just don't make me want to do that; it's all run here to do this, run there to do that. RDR may have a checklist of things to do, but it doesn't feel quite like other open world games in that way.

This is exactly what I've been thinking to myself after playing around in the Valentine town for a bit. Running around and playing it the way I usually would is just going to give me a headache and cause me to feel overwhelmed. I feel the right way to play it is to lean back, become a part of the world and forget about ever trying to finish the game or anything. It's like everytime you play the game you're visiting that world. Just slow down and take it all in.

I listen to my first Beastcast after missing the past 8 episodes, and I'm greeted with Cop Alex warning me to not drive when stoned.

Love it
