@danryckert Regarding spoilers: Everything is a spoiler. In one of the latest beastcast's you said that "There was a cool moment regarding Arya in the newest game of thrones episode, but i'm not gonna spoil it", but unfortunately that is , by itself, a spoiler. By acknowleding that the character is still alive, that removes any tension in ANY preceding scene where that character's life is in peril at a earlier point in the series, so that would be a big spoiler for newcomers to Game of Thrones.

So, yeah, even something as miniscule as that statement can be considered a pretty big spoiler. There was a great video uploaded on youtube that really breaks down that basically everything is a spoiler, but I can't find it. Maybe someone knows what video I am talking about.

@mepsipax: So the sender forgot to put in their name or what? We don't have that hard to understand names here in Norway.

no, it's just that when I set up my automatic signature in gmail, I used a dash (--) to denote my name, which gmail interprets as "okay, i'll just hide that line of text".

Rare greier det der.

@cyberspacecat:

I think it's a legitimate complaint to try and find a solution for this series moving forwards, and if Dan is as genuinely annoyed by this game's combat as he lets on (and not just playing the heel), there is absolutely no need to force Dan to even be part of this series. I mean Vinny seemed to hate Shenmue, but he managed to put a fun twist on it, whereas Dan is just pouting and sighing.

Dan is part of pretty much every single video on the site, and I think he's a great addition to pretty much everything, but here it works against him in almost every single way. If he's gonna be a debbie downer anyway, then it makes sense to have him not be part of the series. He's an adult, and it's not like we're asking for him to be fired; I think this is pretty constructive criticism overall.

If they had done an episode focusing on combat, where Dan could try things out and vocalize his complaints in an analytical fashion I actually think i'd be fine with Dan's thoughts on the game, but his complaints are pretty shallow, especially when he could address all of his issues with a little bit of troubleshooting. The game's combat is flawed, yes, but he is making it way worse than it actually is.

It does bother me that my entire comment history here is complaining about Dan's complaining, but i've been a premium subscriber for a long time, and this is the only series where I've felt the need to voice my frustration. I hope you can view it as constructive criticism though, and not just complaining.

Considering how many premium shows have been spearheaded by Dan, I think it's fine to totally eliminate Dan from the equation of future BITE series, and make this a Vinny+Alex+Abby venture (if they even keep going at all).

I think the most telling thing for me is how Dan doesn't try to troubleshoot why he doesn't like something (is it his fault, or the game's fault? etc), when the rest of the gang does try to adapt even though they don't like what they're playing (like Steal my Sunshine). It just makes him come off as very childish.

This is probably why I enjoyed This is the run, because while they were goofing off; Vinny took the SC2 challenge pretty seriously. watching him learn and adapt was really fun, so it's a shame that Dan didn't take the same approach with Yakuza.

Having said that, it makes me really happy that Alex really fell in love with the series, and i look forward to hearing more about him playing Yakuza on the Beastcast.

Listening to Dan's incessant whining is really annoying me. If they spent just a little time exploring the combat system they could address 80% of the issues they have with the combat. That week inbetween is probably not helping things, but if they want to move forward with this series; Either play it on Easy, or troubleshoot the combat just a _little_ bit.

Yeah, the bosses are spongy, but when you try to button-mash literally everything, then you're absolutely going to feel like you're getting nowhere.

-The dash has invulnerability frames (useful for getting to the gun dudes)

-A block button does exist in this game, and you guys even went through the truble of unlocking heat gain while blocking, so why not try using it?

- The beast crew just wants to see cool shit happen, so aim for unlocking Heat actions (stop upgrading nothing but heat retention and health boosts).

I played yakuza 0 at a friend's house this weekend, and this game is so generous with letting the player feel like a badass that ,by using the right tools at the right time, you honestly could get through every fight by losing little to no health.

Having said all of that, I am glad you are enjoying the Yakuza series, but by using your heads just a little bit; you could be enjoying it a LOT more.

I can't believe my first post on GiantBomb was to complain about how Dan plays Yakuza :P I'm sorry guys~
