Man I needed that laugh. Camera going everywhere was hilarious. 
 
We need to play some MP this weekend, if you're off, of course.

Mark Hamill got robbed at the Video Game Awards by Jack Black. That's a fact... Jack.

Agree with what you said about Uncharted. I was really surprised on how much I loved this game. One of the best of the year, for sure.
Good video dude.

SoCo's awesome. Haven't tried it with EggNog though. Gonna try that.
 
Yeah, I got the message there. I'm going to have to get a DBD out soon.
 
As for aging... hell, wait until you hit 38... those little dimples turn into crevaces. Oh, by the way, happy birthday brother!
 
Uncharted 2 was a huge surprise for me this year. Really enjoyed the game and, just like you, I haven't touched the co-op and MP in the game. We should do some co-op on that game man.
 
InFamous was also another great game. I should go back to that one and play as a "bad guy".
 
Modern Warfare 2... eh, yeah, it was alright, but I'm just too sucky at the MP to even try and get better in that. Again, if you want to do some SpecOps, hit me up.
 
Left 4 Dead 2... what a horrible game. Ugh, such garbage. Let's play over the weekend.
 
Don't think people would like to see me in HD... so, I'll hold off on the HD cam for a bit. Great blog man, love seeing you back on here brother.

" Well, I agree with you that it's not as amazing as the tim schafer name would have you believe but it's still a pretty awesome game when compared to most things that get put out, just stop comparing it to the likes of uncharted for a second and you'll understand why it's an awesome game. "
I hadn't even played Uncharted 2 yet when I wrote this, so I wasn't comparing it to anything.

" the game is 5h long and if anybody mentions the crappy sidequests i will pee on their head "
That's both unclear and disturbing all at once.

" They should just come out with a patch that makes all the RTS battles optional sidequests. "
I'm going out on a limb and labeling that as a terrible idea.   It's pretty shocking how the Giant Bomb community seems about 70% full of people who don't like the rather free-flowing RTS elements in this game or refuse to try the game because they only care if blowing through the campaign will take 20+ hours.  I honestly haven't enjoyed a new game this much since Batman: AA, and before that was Fallout 3. Towards the end I was actually leaving the sidequests behind because I enjoyed the stage battles so much--I wish you could upgrade all of your units and not just the three basics though.   Also, I'm confused why so many people are having a hard time with the stage battles...it makes me think you're playing the game wrong. Kind of like how Tim Schafer rudely claimed in that press comment, you need to stop trying to RTS direct to win. I didn't lose one stage battle the entire way through, though the first skirmish with the drowning dead was pretty tough and they were almost at my stage before the end.  If I had to give some advice on making the stage battles easier in more common vernacular, think of the RTS portions of the game as your units doing all of the grunt defense and offense duties, while you personally hack and slash all of the micro management. Oh, the enemy has a couple vehicles and ranged coming up on this skirmish I'm in, what do I do? If you're pretty skilled at the melee combat you can just wade in and stall them (maybe even kill them outright), but other options include flying up behind them and summoning some beasts to intercept, or playing your Zeppelin solo in their path so the burning wreckage comes crashing down on them as they advance.  Anyways, I'm just here to say I really like the game, and the stage battles, not to criticize other peoples' tastes or how they choose to play the game. 12 hours in for one play through, and I haven't even touched multiplayer yet.  I do agree with the naysayers that some of the sidequests, like the ambush ones and the races, are pretty repetitive. Ambush cutscenes are so damn irritating and poorly done, and the races are just too easy =P. "
Very well written. By writing my blog, I didn't intend for everybody in the free world to hate the game or dismiss it completely. Everybody's entitled to their own opinion on the game, and what you have written here was very well said.
 
I actually rather enjoyed the first part of it. Freeing the headbangers had to be my favorite thing to do the entire duration of the game. The RTS elements bothered me, because I found them a bit difficult (even though I was playing on Easy... heh) and didn't really have the patience to go through with them.

" As soon as it becomes a full blown "RTS" the gameplay just falls apart. Its just way too clunky, slow, and frustrating to be a game I would recommend to anyone.  This fucking fog level is a total piece of shit. I feel like I'm being fucked over by the controls. I'm being attacked in a 3 different places and flying is way too slow and having to be next to troops is completely asinine in a game like this.  Glad I rented it. "
Amen to that sir, Amen.
