@nta_luciana: Behind the scenes with Jason making sure everything runs smoothly.
I'm shocked this wasn't a Dan quicklook.
I think I'm done with F&F after 8. The first hour was really bad, mainly because they tried to be serious and fridged Elena. Like the timeline makes no sense for it and it just proves to me that for all the good work the series does with having a racially diverse cast, they can't write women for shit. Post-3 they've ended up either pregnant or dead, or in Elena's case both. It's ridiculous.
The second hour was a lot better with Owen showing back up and him teaming up with Deckard to take down Cipher, but it was honestly kinda too late. As much as I love Theron, she was completely wasted in this. Cipher's motivation made no sense and for all the posturing she does with Dom during the first hour, as soon as Deckard puts a gun on her she flees.
Speaking of Deckard, for as much as I liked him saving Ramsey and generally being a good dude, it really bothered me that they didn't take the chance to retcon Han's death so that him and Dom could be all square. Because now it makes Dom look like a total asshole for completely forgetting about Han and being all buddy-buddy with the guy he wanted to put in the ground in the last movie.
Maybe my opinion will change when I see it a second time, but right now this is how I'm feeling. Before 8 I always wanted Sean and Neela from Tokyo Drift to join the family, but honestly I'm really glad that they get to have their happy ending and never get dragged through the shit like everyone else. Post-5, nobody gets to be happy except for Brian and Mia, and they only get to have happiness because Paul Walker died.
The silver lining in all of this is that no matter what happens, I'll always have Tokyo Drift, and that's all that really matters.
Holy crap the ending to this was incredible. Like I continue to be amazed that this game got released in its broken ass state. Then again, even if it was technically competent, all the writing would still be hot trash. This should easily win Most Disappointing and Hottest Mess come year's end, unless something worse comes out.
On a somewhat related note, how much money do I have to donate to make a Vinny/Alex playthrough of the Mass Effect Trilogy happen, or at least a playthrough of the first one? Have Vinny play, just so Alex can at least experience all the dialogue and storyline stuff. Dan can come too I guess, though this video definitely reminded me of how good the Vinny/Alex pairing is.
Infinite Warfare is the best-selling game of 2016
Sources: Vgchartz and Steam Spy (though you have to go twelve pages deep to even find COD).
Even if you add all the sales together, it still gets beat by Battlefield 1 (which sold like double what COD did on PC) by almost 600,00 (11,209,253 vs 10,617,177), and gets absolutely smashed by Pokemon Sun/Moon and Fifa. Also both GTA V and Black Ops III (old games) sold more on PS4 in 2016 than Infinite Warfare did on Xbox One. That's legitimately terrible.
It's cool if you like COD or whatever, but please don't go around acting like Giant Bomb are lying to people by being down on the franchise.
Man, watching Brad play through that escalation was so rough, especially since I've spent the past week or so playing Hitman obsessively (I've already got full mastery on Paris and I'm almost there on Sapienza and Bangkok). Like as someone who gets silent assassin regularly and is constantly reloading saves just to do things flawlessly (I legit spent an hour and a half a couple of nights ago trying to knock out and dump the private detective on Sapienza without getting seen by anyone and it was the most euphoric thing ever when I finally pulled it off), I really didn't get why he was snapping people's necks after he had knocked them out. Once you knock them out, you just dump their bodies in a box or something and then they're never found or woken up again.
I dunno, maybe he plays way better when he's at home or in a more relaxed environment (much like how I figure Dan's Hitsmas run got screwed up by his anxiety), but man did I find myself yelling at the TV a lot more then I did before I could actually play the game. I 100% realise that pure chaos is a viable way to play and I keep meaning to play a version of Vinny's Hitsmas run that someone made for PS4, but it's just not how I play it or what I find satisfying about Hitman.

Austin + Vinny + Sleeping Dogs sounds like the best podcast ever.
@nagafen: It's crazy how badly optimised FH3 seems to be right now.
Wasn't the whole point of releasing Apex on PC meant to be figuring out all the PC optimisation stuff before a huge release?
Hopefully they get it fixed up pretty quick.
@hurtfulmadmax: Dude, he's consorting with neo-nazis. If you can't see the problem with that, then god help you.
