@lyndbako: Huh? The USSR had many victims, including millions of its own people. The fact that the USSR fought Nazi Germany doesn't erase the fact that the USSR was itself terrible.

Man, I know these games aren't great, but I've really enjoyed my time with them. I'm gonna be grabbing this one soon. The attention to detail on equipment and in animation is just really cool.

I mean, yeah, holding a button to break down a weapon into its component materials is very video gamey and super dumb. This looks like it walks the line between reasonable simulation and convenience for the sake of gameplay.

@onemanarmyy: The "Mozambique" gun is possibly a reference to the "Mozambique Drill." It's an older name for what is more commonly known as a "failure to stop drill." In short, it's "two in the chest, one in the head."

@craftxiii: It's one thing to not want to engage with social media, but "Instacrap" and "Farcebook" aren't exactly cutting edge satire. Especially when the dev making this game has a Facebook account they use to advertise the game.

Feeling super misled by the copy in the video description. Thought it was a hint that Drew Scanlon might have a cameo here.

It sounds like Alex really wants to like this game but can't quite bring himself to.

Wow...watching this is making me want to get back into this series.

Vinny's joy at getting Alex to experience one of his favorites game series of all time is just so pure and genuine. Alex having fun with a widely revered series while also giving his sincere reactions to the big moments as he experiences them for the first time is the type of thing I subscribe to this site for.

There's a lot of talk in comment sections about who has good chemistry together, whose personalities complement each other, that sort of thing. A lot of it has to do with comedic timing and the ability to riff off one another. This series includes that, but it also transcends joking and riffing. What makes this work--and what's going to keep me and everyone else engaged for dozens more hours of this--is that idea that sharing media (or art) that is meaningful to you is a great way of bringing friends together.

@aegon: It was a minor possible detail of a news story that got blown out of proportion and was poorly reported on by the media.

"He hates Red Dead but he looks like he's from it," is one of the funniest goddamn things ever said on this podcast.

@kippers: I understand where you're coming from in theory, but asking someone to put, in some cases, literally dozens of hours into games they don't enjoy to get a certain story beat or reveal or whatever is NOT going to cause them to suddenly like it. If the story of a game isn't working for someone and they don't like the characters, at best they MIGHT come away with a response of, "I can see how that was a powerful moment for someone who likes the game." In cases of frustrating gameplay, it might actually be better for them to watch the scenes on YouTube.

The other thing is it sounds pretty selfish for us, the viewers, to demand that they subject themselves to hour upon hour of games they don't enjoy just so some GoTY segments can be a little more interesting. They all clearly crunch to finish games for GoTY, and I'm pretty sure that includes doing so at home. To suggest that they should also do this for games they know they aren't going to enjoy seems incredibly unfair.
