I enjoyed most of the deliberations, but the best game discussions were garbage.

Abby needs to learn how to articulate her opinions, and I thought PUBG wasn't supposed to be in the running this year? I must have missed something, because Jeff clearly said that PUBG was ABSOLUTELY NOT eligible for GOTY deliberations on an earlier bombcast.

Good review. I was pretty addicted to the game in the beginning, then I just felt like I was going through the motions during the last third of the game.

The singing boss is also the only time I feel like Ubisoft really takes a stab at poking, prodding & having fun with the Nintendo license they acquired. It just seemed like they were too scared of disrespecting this beloved license that they ended up turning all the Nintendo characters into these dull, stoic heroes. The only time the game struck out with an identity for me was with the Rabbids, and I wish they would have played around more with the license, instead of playing it so safe.

Having said all that, there's a good chance that Ubisoft wanted to take it in a "riskier" direction, but Nintendo put its foot down every single time.

Good stuff, easily my favorite series on the site right now (especially since Game Tapes is dead), but I agree that Vinny has taken over too much of the decision-making. It's sorta what the series has morphed into, since the first couple of episodes were a little bit too free-form, which had pretty disastrous results.

If they end up redoing this series when it ends (or move on to xcom2), I would love for Vinny to research the game, so he knows how classes should be played, what skills are best, upgrade paths etc. That way , the commanders can ask questions, and Vinny can drop some comprehensive info that lets them make more informed decisions. Not necessarily the "right" decisions, but at least let them know what the consequences of those decisions are.

So I've played through this game, and they remade Yakuza 1 without really fixing any of its serious flaws. Bosses that are pointlessly frustrating are just as bad in Yakuza Kiwami. It would make for a _really_ bad Beast in the East, because it's really not that good of a game. Yakuza 0 is an exceptional intro to the series, and Kiwami is such a weak follow-up, because the original story just can't hold a candle to 0. Games have come a long way since 2005, and Kiwami just makes that painfully obvious. The entire thing just reeks of PS2-era boss & level design.

I got it for a little bit of mindless grinding, and it's fine for that, but it's really not worth the money.

@sambirli: Pretty much what @ethanielrain said. I like Dan in other features, but I find his Heel persona to be detrimental to the series. He's taking it too far, and I think the series is worse off for it.

Other people don't mind it though.

@ottoman673: You're not wrong, but I find the Dan episodes to be frustrating to watch. Someone talked about how the GB crew determines what lives/dies by viewership, so I just figured I could ask, but I'll just avoid those episodes. I want to "vote with my view count", similarly to how i "vote with my wallet" when I buy games i like/want to support . After 2 Dan episodes I know what i'm going to get, and I don't want to watch them; so I won't. Pretty simple stuff. Other than that, this is probably my favorite series (after Game Tapes).

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.

I'm 23 minutes in, and Vinny has the patience of a saint.

Wow, this was a fantastic video. I can't believe I clapped my hands together in jubilation when Alex finally beat the shield boss/fake Proto Man. Not to mention how clean that run was.
