Brad's really good at his job in general, but open world/big game QL's aren't his strong suit.

I recently played through the first game & the DLC (on sale for like $5 on Steam <3); too burnt out to play this one any time soon, but I think it looks solid. Can see spending many hours getting all of my castles nice & pretty, decorated the same :)

I love Kumail, but man he is not a great voice actor.

I'd say he's outright terrible. At least in the two roles I've heard him in (this and Mass Effect).

I never got around to playing the first game. Would you say it's a must-play before starting this one or can I just jump into Shadow of War?

100% ok to skip the first one. You'll miss some of the "neat in-jokes" & might find the game/systems a little overwhelming/hard at first, but that's all.

@hassun: Holy hell, those proportions are something else. Spidey's been going to the gym it seems.

Well he can't stay a teenager forever.

His head is still a child, though.

TEAMWORK from all 4 people, never thought I'd see it in one of these videos. Good job :D

They forget that the #'s don't work if you aren't really close to each other though; and I'm surprised to see the comments here :( This is still one of my favorite series and I look forward to it & XCOM every week! Keep em coming for as long as you like playing the game please!

@liad: Just curious why will you be skipping the Dan ones?

A lot of people were pissed at Dan for doing a bit/playing the heel (and having the game suffer for it) rather than just playing it straight. See the comments for the last video for reference.

@andrewjplant: XCOM percentages notably don't feel accurate. People talk about missing the 90% shots way more often than they should. I don't know how accurate that is as i never played the first game, however in XCOM2 i had a 30% roll on a hack that i save summed over a dozen times and although it rolled differently everytime, it certainly was not reflective of 1 in 3 odds. In the end i just found a different save.

I forget and don't care enough to look it up:) but the first game used "seeding" or some math crap rather than actual rolls/percentages. Sequel probably does something similar...but I think it's just that thing of remembering the times you get hosed more than you do the good/average times.

I think I'm just hardwired into the "get in range of enemy and fire" strategy. I'll give squad sight a shot in my on-and-off playthrough sometime.

Squad sight is incredibly OP in this game. You definitely should try it because it can make a well positioned sniper an unstoppable killing machine.

Didn't they nerf it in the expansion? They were broken in vanilla, I remember 2 of them basically beating the game for me; but the way they're playing, move+shoot would be better :)

Abby killed it! Shame about Brad, but this was pretty good.

Question about view count: Does it count viewership on downloaded episodes, or just by watching it? I'll be skipping the Dan episodes, but I want to show that i'm still enjoying the rest of this series, so what's my best course of action here? I guess I could download the episode, and watch it on the site. Any info on this would be appreciated.

It's been a while but I remember Jeff/Rorie talking about it & pretty sure "the metrics" show both (and whether or not you finished it, etc). You don't have to try and game the system, just do you & it'll show.

I remember this game being less forgiving; maybe that's just time or playing on "normal", but whatever the case...good job, Commander Russell.

Normally I don't watch these but Abby is on it so I'll give it a shot.

How was it?
