For better and worse it seems like Call of Duty. After Infinite it was evident that hard fans of this series are not welcoming of change so I guess good on 'em for getting back to the core experience - boots on the ground if you will.

@adamkerr: Yah I agree the fandom for this particular game is reaching some sort of zenith that seems bizarre. Today I saw someone put up a fan film for Death Stranding, and the game isn't even out, no one even knows details about the world or plot - what is this movie based on? It's weird.

@adamkerr: I think people seriously over analyze the entire issue. There is an entire contingent of fans out there that get Gears of War tattoos - would you say that is an even bigger level of fandom? Especially for the quality of writing and characters that Gears of War represents. The way I've seen Kojima described recently by those who need to explain exactly why they don't like him is bizarre. IS MGS "objectively" bad? About as objectively bad as most game stories are I suppose. Do a whole lot of people enjoy it? Yah definitely. There are fandoms everywhere for everything, he's just having another moment in the spotlight right not for understandable reasons. And you know after the way he exited Konami, after all the hard work his team and he put into the MGS series and they just cut him lose, I think he kind of deserves it.

How strange for Abby to sincerely ask “why do people like Kojima” it’s probably the same reason people like anything. The guy makes interesting games, I don’t think it’s that far fetched and weird that in an age of sequels and retread ideas some people are excited to see something completely new and off the wall.

By this point I think this is sadly probably the worst GB East produced content to date - which is a real shame because obviously a lot of hard work and planning went into making it. On paper it all probably sounded pretty great but I don’t think they anticipated just how bad the videogame part would actually be. Sunshine - which I assume was the template for this - was difficult at times, sometimes buggy, but at the end of the day a fairly straight forward and competent platformer. I’ve watched four episodes so far and I’m still absolutely perplexed by what is even going on in the game. This is largely due to the fact that the gameplay is so bad that I always start doodling on a napkin or browsing other tabs with the audio running in the background. Like others I enjoy the wacky nonsense that happens on the periphery of it all but after such outstanding shows like Crime Crew, Sunshine, RE4, This is the Run..etc.. where both gameplay and banter were equally engaging, this just seems like a dud.

Goes without saying, but I’m saying it, my opinions are my own and all that.

The GB East box was exponentially better but still cool stuff. That Myst thing is an awesome collectors item.

The person who made this should be rich by now from all the people pledging to buy this game because he didn’t take the Epic deal.

That aside the guy really is super talented for putting this whole thing together on his own.

Jeff playing old games always reminds me that man, games used to be pretty bad back in the day.
