Yooo, Demo Derby (and Quest 64)! They're pretty cool demos, though. Thanks for the video! <3

@benpack

"Corn dogs as a side and 87 different flavors of milkshake" - were you referencing Cookout with this comment? It sounds like them, although I don't think they have eighty seven different flavors of milkshake.

EDIT: Nevermind, this is why I should finish watching to see if someone decides to fact-check themselves, Ben figured it out.

Cookout tastes fine. You get a whole lot of food for not very much money, but it's pretty greasy and fried and so on and so forth. If you're ever in the Southeast, it's worth checking out, but also if you don't get to it then you didn't miss all that much.

Zaxby's, though, that's pretty great.

This RE 2 Remake really makes me wish they had handled the recent RE Remake the same way instead of the clunky mess it was.

It's tough to pick up & play RPGs on the fly, much less showcase them in 15 minutes. I'll be looking forward to more Tales from the Blockbuster, as well as more of this strange Glover renaissance in which we've found ourselves. (I also love that intro.)

Plus: hooray for Brad being back in one piece!

"What's God taste like?"

Read Toriko, Ben, and you'll find out.

EDIT: Also, liking the thumbnails. Stylish and informative.

You mean the almost 20 year old REmake from the Gamecube era?

Hi Brad! UPF was great this week, partly because they played actual games and not whatever steam trash was released that week.

Was I the only one that was sort of turned off after playing the RE2 demo today? I didn't mind the gameplay or control all that much. The shooting was a little off to me, but I'm sure I could get used to it. The scene where you pull the police officer under the gate and his intestines are all hanging out just really grossed me out.

Don't get me wrong. I LOVE the Resident Evil Series. I hate horror and gory stuff but always enjoyed RE for some reason. The original 3 games are still my favorite. I enjoyed 7 quite a bit as well. However...for whatever reason this one just didn't vibe with me. The scene where you pull the police officer under the gate and his intestines are all hanging out just really grossed me out.

Not sure what my deal is. Maybe the gore was easier to stomach when it was all pixelated back on the PS1 and PS2?

I had a chicken salad sandwich 15 years ago that made me sick for 2 days. Haven't had one since. Just the thought of it makes me ill.

screw playing that 30min re2 demo, I need to take my sweet time with that game. Seems they did a nice job on it though and I'm looking forward to playing it at my own pace when it comes out. Also I'm not sure about that cleft in Leon's chin.

Jason got me into Monster Hunter, and it ate 500 goddamn hours of my life. I'm not going to let it happen again with God Eater.
...
Oh, who am i kidding. Downloading the demo now.

(Also, taking bets: who finishes God Hand first, GB or GI)

Dang, RE2 looks good and runs smoothly too. If I wasn't already going to buy it before watching, this would've made me decide to do so.

I want to see an 80 year old muscle bound Warren in DoA and I want to buy Bikini DLC for him for a premium. Say.... $100 or more.

Cookout is legit pretty good! It's probably my favorite fast food place that I've been to in recent years. Really anyplace that serves cheerwine is cool with me.

Tales from the Blockbuster. New video series where Ben lovingly plays a game that defined his childhood while Jeff shits on it. Make it so!

I saw that god eater 3 game and had no idea what it was, saw that intro and I was thinking okay, it's a fighting game, than I saw the character creator and thought it was like a phantasy star style MMORPG and than I saw the game play and went "Oh, it's just monster hunter" and I was sad.

@justin258:A Cookout opened up near campus during my freshman year of undergrad. I'm 99% sure that single store is responsible for the rise of diabetes in the OH-KY-WV tristate area over the past few years.
