This was great! For a fan of campy horror movies, I don't think I'd seen this one before. Also the sergeant (Peter Mensah) who Alex said was in the sequel to 300 was actually in the original. He was the dude who got This is Sparta-ed.

The audio seems super compressed in a guitar pedal compressor way.

Ah, classic Giant Bomb content, meaning "do not check about something in advance, give it a half-assed attempt and proceed to complain about not finding an option that totally exists for the rest of the video".

It's less that I'm complaining about it myself (at this point it's part of the charm, I guess?), but I feel bad for the people that worked hard to put things in the game for *precisely* the kind of logic the guys are using to give them crap for not doing it. It's not fair to the game, and it actively pushes people away from it for no reason. I find it a bit irresponsible for people with such a big following, to be honest.

In this case it's even weirder because totally can do that with the old controller-based version of the game as well. The Internet is full of videos of people putting buckets on top of people's heads. These guys have talked about it before, even.

It bummed me out that they didn't figure out their error during their time with the game on video. Honestly, I wish they'd focus less on critiquing games at this point, its not what I enjoy about their content. The Beat Saber stuff was great to see and I'm definitely interested to check it out on my rift.

I've seen clips of this movie before and expected zany absurdity, but as a recovering addict myself I found it was "somewhat" more grounded than I expected and I had no idea that substance abuse was such a big part of this movie. The ending was very odd in my opinion as I definitely expected Cage's character to flame out in a big way.

I think the uneven-ness in this game's graphical polish might have more to do with it being an open world game rather than it inheriting last-gen assets. The island water city area of the game (Altisa) is honestly one of the most impressive things I've ever seen in a videogame, both artistically and technically.

Another odious performance by Dan Ryckert. I’m sure it’s been said before in the massive amounts of comments preceding me, but while Dan’s “bit” works great in a competitive environment like Mario Party, in the cooperatively turn based setup in this video series it’s not fun to watch and just seems like a lazy way to get a big reaction.

@vorkosigan91: I agree with most of what you said. Disappointing is a good way to put it. This series as a concept is great, but it is an extremely deep game that requires a certain amount of knowledge of it's mechanics to play that they, unfortunately, just don't have. That aside, Dan acting the way he did is really what was the biggest bummer.

@fontelroy: Well I disagree! I'm also premium subscriber. I think Dan should stay on the team.

Hmm, you say you've been a member since the beginning. I guess you overrule me. Unless....

Yeah, I was being bombastic and I truly do really like Dan. A lot of my favorite stuff on this site now probably involves Dan. That being said, his contribution to this series in the episode was not enjoyable in any way. He just didn't seem to have any care towards playing with any competency and killed off teammates. I was looking forward to seeing the characters of Alex and Vinny as the series progressed, but, alas, Dan happened. I know playing games for the video purposes of Giant Bomb is a unique thing and so not to expect tournament level play, but based on this and other games (as well as his advice to Drew in Metal Gear Scanlon 5) Dan will just seem to ignore any advanced game systems and mechanics and fail his way through.
