What is more interesting is how many deaths it took once he figured the puzzle out and compare it to dan's number in which he knew the path and he knew what was red herrings. Which is one of the reasons why dan's level is so bad (not difficult, bad) is because of the red herrings, the stage isn't hard because the puzzles were hard but they were misleading elements that had to be explored. Fatiguing the player isn't a great way to win, it just shows level design incompetence.

@noboners: Oh sorry, I didn't mean it to be. I assumed people watched the stream and I guess my question made more sense in the context of the stream. I play games a lot like Vinny and was thinking of getting Far Cry 4, so when I saw the huge amount of issues and I know some people have found the game fine on PC. I wanted to know what he did wrong, the answer could've been that he did nothing wrong.

I am appalled at the state of the game when Vinny wanted to play that game. His inability to start an offline game and the rampant scripting bugs. Was your experience on parity with Vinny's experience? This will heavily influence my decision to purchase this game.

I don't comment much, but I can't not say farewell. You had some insightful comments about the industry. For some reason I could always trust you to be the most honest about whats happening on the sight. You were the most transparent and I value that above anything else. It was great seeing your beginnings in this post and it would be nice to see why you're leaving but that for you to decide and no-one else. Thanks for staying with us as long as you have!

People will say Amazon based off the uneasy feeling that Google is getting too big. Then they will rationalize it accordingly.

@towolie: On principle, since you didn't pay for the game (or don't have enough for the game) doesn't mean you can pirate the game. Having no money is not an excuse to steal. Or rather, it shouldn't be. Especially for luxury items like games.

I don't know where to put this but I go.

Now I know that Giant Bomb has only so many people doing things for the site. But as a user of the site I would love to see a better search for video. Especially since there are multiple endurance run series, and RPGs and LOLs and Thursday Night Throwdowns. Maybe more categories for the videos?

I feel that it would encourage rewatching some of the old content that would generate more views rather then let it hide in the archives. It's good content that could be re-exposed to your newer audience. I love this site and would love to see success in it's ventures, I also feel like you guys could do a lot more with the youtube uploads as well including links to other videos at the end for continued viewing. It certainly has that effect on me when I watch game videos on youtube.

This is just an outsiders opinion, but it seems to do well with some of the more popular youtube videos and you should see similar success. Thanks for the attention!

What an embarrassing way to start off a new technology. Two companies publicly fighting with each other through headlines over who owns what. I guess I can't really expect a company owned by Facebook to take the high road.

Oculus sold out and it shows in the way that they're handling themselves. I wish they showed more integrity and never took Zuckerberg's monopoly money.

I think that's an unfair assessment on Oculus, mainly because there are a number of underlying reasons why Oculus could have sold to facebook that were beyond the control of the people and it's management. They've technically sold out but your presumptions of "I guess I can't really expect a company owned by Facebook to take the high road." and "Oculus sold out and it shows in the way that they're handling themselves." seem unjustified. I implore you to reassess your stance on Oculus, mainly because Oculus could do great things (and has done great things) and to see their product be tarnished because of pre-conceived notions of the masses would be a crying shame. They're still the same people there... but now their investors have changed and have become a little more financially stable. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy if you think the Oculus is going down now.
