@zevy: sorry for caring about video games I guess
It's good Jeff explicitly stated that his dislike of the Far Cry 5 story was on a technical basis and not because of it not being forceful enough in one political dimension or another.
I get the sense this motivates Austin's Waypoint review and find this type of critique unfair and dogmatic.
I think you're mishearing me here. The story is bad and should have had more to say because as it stands, it's this completely empty thing that could have been so much more. They had a shot at making something meaningful and interesting and instead chose to undermine their own story and characters at every turn. It's weak storytelling. But I say that regardless of how it was marketed. The story is bad on its own merits, no external marketing required.
A more "forceful" story, as you put it, could have been far more interesting, and that could have helped cover for its well-worn gameplay and glitches.
As someone who works at farmers markets in the bay area its actually the law that we have to put "we grow what we sell on are signs" or some format of that. So yea that why they all say that.
That's super weird and good to know!
Sorry Jeff, I am still not buying that you think Destiny 2 is more memorable than Horizon 0D.
So... you think I'm lying, then? Cool, thanks.
FPP isn't bad at all, controls exactly the same,
This is my exact problem with the first-person mode, dude. It controls like a game built for third-person play but in first-person. Feels bad. Plays bad. No thanks.

@zabant: Hi, can you give an example of why you think this? Because I had a great time putting this episode together, so I'm not really sure what you're even talking about.
@cliffordbanes: That's pretty cool, I'll probably buy one of those.
@drewbert@jeff@unastrike I like these kinds of videos, but I think calling it an Unfinished is misleading. Not in the literal sense, but the categorical sense. An "Unfinished" is a Quick Look (actual live game play) for an unreleased game and this is not that at all. You're just talking over PR footage. Again I'm not saying that's a bad thing and I do enjoy this type of content, but I think it needs a different label.
If this video can be classified as an "Unfinished" than you might as well do a highly edited video of Horizon: Zero Dawn and release it already as a "Quick Look".
Drew originally conceived the "Unfinished" title to encompass all types of pre-release coverage, from playing preview builds live-to-tape to talking over B-roll or captured footage when that's all that's available. That's specifically why we broke it off from "Quick Look" in the first place, to better support weird situations like this.
Is it me or one of the sound effects in Stargate sounds like that ray gun beeping sound DJ Premier uses?
Yeah, Premier uses some Defender noises in his stuff, for sure. Or, at least, he did. The "humanoid picked up by a lander" noise found its way into some radio edits as curse cover-ups.
Use your keyboard!
